I Joined the Gym back in February 2009, my main goal at the time was weight loss, I took part in a lot of spinning then moved onto weights with help from Rob.
I really started to enjoy the strength training over the years and decided to try competing in powerlifting. I competed with Ricky and Gaz in our first competition, and caught the bug. I have also taken up Olympic weightlifting and now compete in both Powerlifting and Weightlifting. I competed in British Powerlifting Championship this year and the European Masters in Weightlifting in Sweden.
Since taking up Powerlifting and Weightlifting I have dropped three weight categories, and I feel stronger and leaner for it. My plan for the next year is to qualify and compete in the English & British Championships and the World Masters in Barcelona.
Thanks to all the staff at Fashionable Fitness, they have supported me throughout my journey, and go the extra mile from help with spotting in the gym to a cup of tea at Reception.
