Another great advertisement from Thomas Inch. This one is from 1910:

Who are physically fit and enjoy good health but to whom the word “strength” holds out charms, I would point out that practically all the world’s records of weight-lifting are held up to 11st. 7lb., by pupils of my ADVANCED SYSTEM.

The following is a list of successes up-to-date:

J. Holliday, 8st. World’s Champion Lifter.
J. Holliday, 8st. 7lb. World’s Champion Lifter.

W.L. Carquest, 9st. World’s Champion Lifter.

W.L. Carquest, 9st. 7lb. World’s Champion Lifter.

E. Aston, Middle-Weight Champion of Britain.

Whilst I am the Ex-Middle Weight Champion of the World.

At the Health and Strength Display, Agricultural Hall, last year, every weight-lifting competition was won by one of my pupils, and it would require many copies of HEALTH & STRENGTH to contain one-tenth of the extraordinary testimonials that I have received about this remarkable system.


A Valuable Disc Bar-Bell is presented gratis with the course, and I will undertake under guarantee to improve your strength and physical development out of all knowledge. Write at once for my book “A Quick Route to Strength – Do it NOW.
