I got into weight training back in 2014 when I met Vinny. I had been doing bootcamps for a long time & not really getting anywhere with my weight loss goals. Vinny introduced me to weight training in the gym as he trains for strongman. And I was really happy to be seeing progress finally. It was hard but I enjoyed it so much more than I had ever the bootcamps. I made the decision to start training to actually compete in July 2017, 6 months after I had given birth to our son. And did my first Powerlifting competition in early 2018 followed shortly after by a Strongwoman competition. I love competing in both Sports but I am currently focusing on Powerlifting as training for both with very little time between comps in 2019 was very difficult, I love a challenge but also don't want to burn out.
2018 was about finding my feet, seeing if I enjoyed competing. 2019 was about seeing what I could do & actually aiming to qualify for National Comps as well as potentially International Comps. I finished my 2nd Year of competing as 3rd Strongest in the North, 7th Strongest in England as well as British Champion u75 Raw Opens, World Champion u82.5 Raw Opens with a British Squat Record in the u82.5 Raw Opens class of 157.5kg.

I have always been very self conscious about my weight. I have never been a skinny person even at a size 10/12. I have done numerous diets including the fad diets like juice plus etc. Nothing ever really worked an if it did it wasn't for long or maintainable. I have worked with a few nutritionists over the last few years. This has helped me massively to understand macros/calories, what is needed for general functioning as well as for training purposes. It helped me create a better relationship with food as well as the main reason I started seeking help.... lose body fat & weight. Through working with these people and learning these things it has pushed me to want to know more and learn more.
I want to help others the way I have been helped. I know how hard and gruelling it can be to lose weight/fat, I have cut weight for competition as well as for my own health benefits. I know its not easy but if you want something enough you find a way to get through the hard parts because its worth it in the long run. No more starving yourself or denying yourself your favourite foods. Create healthy habits which will allow you to enjoy your life, have fun & socialise.
