Lights, Camera, Adaption!

Reminders of why I compete…

This weekend, the collective atmosphere, energy and general vibe at FITX were all reminders to me as to why I compete in Bodybuilding.

I love the community feel within bodybuilding – being able to meet with as many friends as I could, meet new ones and having the opportunity to take to the stage once again provided a real boost that I’ve missed.

I had the chance to take a bit of rest after the long drive to Manchester but had plenty of time to get myself ready. Most of my planning involved in show weekends brings with it some nerves and excitement, so it was lovely to see everyone in the audience, throughout the expo & backstage over the course of the 2 days at a slower pace having got there early.

As I get older I’m more of aware of my fatigue with CP, so I’ve had to my best careful with my energy (I’ve certainly felt it in the days since!), but to take to the stage again after a while away was filled with gratitude and pride of having an opportunity in the disability category with many federations providing that platform now.

The energy levels are starting to return / ready for the PCA Universe weekend in a couple of weekends time!

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!
