A Warm Welcome…

A warm welcome to my new website – Disabilitybodybuilding.com!

I’ve had a blog for some time, looking at different aspects of positive stories, tells of greats feats across the globe & some of my owns views on personal development, which I’ll keep on the site.

From this I’ve tried a number of different ways to engage and evolve it over the years & this transition of the site represents a body of work that I am so passionate about – Disability Bodybuilding.

I’m 34, with cerebral palsy & I’ve competed in mixed disability bodybuilding competitions for 3 years. I can tell you now that it has had such a positive impact on my life throughout that time. I want to provide a springboard to those thinking of or are competing to engage and to build awareness of the category.
Its aims will be to not just chart my own journey, but to promote the sport as whole, in the UK and across the globe. Social Media has provided the platform from which we can now connect & engage with athletes right around the world from all continents and I want to help bring awareness to this growing sport across all abilities.

It will be a source to find events from where competitors can see where there are opportunities to compete and to showcase those where I can either be there in person or online.

We have seen massive growth in terms of numbers in the UK & abroad – breaking down barriers, overcoming challenges to reach the stage and continue to showcase the best in the sport in a number of ways.

There is more to come in 2020,but for now I shall say thank you for your time and I look forward to providing some exciting content about the category, progress and forthcoming events with opportunities for athletes…

All the best,

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!
