Disability, Bullying & Bodybuilding Presentations…

So the hard work is done? It’s only the beginning in so many more ways than one!

OK, for one my training is continuing to prep for further bodybuilding events until 11th June, however there is a bigger picture on the horizon.

I want to inspire, to build upon my own journey and help others, with disabilities and beyond. Whether it is challenges with insecurity or self-doubt (I’ve had mine!) through presentations, speaking, listening and learning – to see where we can break more barriers, improve access and talk further about support.

Furthermore, As I progress, I want to break out my own comfort zone, talk more openly about being bullied at school, its impact (that shaped part of growing up and how it destroys confidence that has to built again) We need to both educate those who bully to teach them their impact and their own insecurities AND crucially supporting those that have been bullied. I don’t know that exact answer, other than it took me some time to get ‘over it’ – years in fact. 

BUT Conversely & more positivly I want to mix my presentation with my fitness journey & to discuss the outcome of my childhood, which came with a happy home life,  I had a huge amount of support from my family and that moulded me with the enthusiasm and that drive that powers me to this day.

I am here to celebrate disability in our diverse culture, to promote it more in bodybuilding & fitness and sport in general.

Yes life has its struggles and challenges but there is nothing, NOTHING like fulfilling and inspiring potential. It can be incredibly powerful to be told you have the power, the key to overcome and achieve, not matter what you are faced with. 

Break the Barriers, together, stronger!!💪💪💪

If anyone could please assist in making this happen, UK, US, Europe, Asia, America, Australia – Lets show the world through fitness and inspiration that anyone can achieve anything for which they have unlimited enthusiasm!

Bringing you the latest in not only my personal journal into the world of disability Bodybuilding, but a discovery into latest events, profiles, news and promoting awareness of this great sport Based in Bristol in the UK, I’ve been competing in Disability Bodybuilding for the last 3 years in a journey which has taken me all over the country to national, international & world championships and I am so so grateful for that opportunity that had changed my life. Living with Cerebal Palsy has its challenges, but everyone has their individual hurdles to negotiate. Gaining strength both physically & mentally and adapting to the surrounding is all part of this journey. This is a mission to raise awareness, to promote our great category to develop opportunities for others. Please get in touch if you’d like to discuss more!
