Competitions, Talks & Much More – The Weekend of FitXpo

This past weekend in Liverpool was incredible.

The FitXpo was something that had been on my calendar for months and there was much anticipation for a number of reasons.

Right up the top was to the chance to reconnect with friends and learn from industry experts but to also once again witness and support the opportunity for a mixed disability class to take to the stage in the Strom Classic during the weekend.

The event had everything – lots of opportunities to learn, with excellent talks throughout – meet great brands (with samples aplenty!) – There was that buzz – from competition, to reuniting with friends and personally exploring a new City in Liverpool.

Major highlights were witnessing competitors Taylor & Lindy taking part in the disability class which continues to grow and both are doing incredible work highlighting awareness of disability, accessibility and the expansion of the category across the sector.

Additional highlights were the excellent talks from Mr Olympia, Dorian Yates, Worlds Strongest – The Stoltman Brothers, and (as approach my late 30’s) a really insightful talk from Tom Blackman with “Gains begin at 40” on Sunday.

A huge thanks to the FitX team for creating a memorable weekend, sourcing high quality speakers and great competitions that were great to witness and to learn from and no doubt excellent to take part in (one for me to think about in 2023 I think!).

It was great to take it all in, to do something new and come away with some fantastic knowledge from the various talks too.

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!
