Priest started training at the age of 12 with the help and support of his grandfather. He competed for the first time at the age of 13 and won.

At 19 he again competed and won The Mr. Australia title, but was not allowed to get his pro card in Australia because of his young age. It was then Priest decided to enter an amateur competition, Niagara Falls Championships. While there, Priest was discovered and given his pro card. Priest became one of the youngest men ever to turn IFBB pro at the age of 20.
Priest competed successfully within the IFBB for 16 years. After falling shy of a notable championship, Priest set his sights on his most elusive opponent The Ironman Pro. After ten years of coming in 2nd or 3rd, 2006 proved Priest's year as the Ironman Pro.
In 2010, Priest was rumoured to compete at the NABBA Mr. Universe however this did not eventuate. He was invited by Paul Dillett to compete in the WBFF, but due to the lack of competition, he decided against competing.

He won numerous races and titles in road and circle track. His most successful bid came within drag-racing. He won Rookie of the Year in 2005. The following year, 2006, he won the SCEDA Racing Championship in Lancaster, California.
