L2 British Powerlifting Coach.
How long have you been strength training?
I started out at the New College Powerlifting Group in January 2017, once a week just for something to do in a lunch break. I soon fell in love with the sport and the atmosphere of Swindon Barbell club and they haven’t been able to get rid of me since!
Do you compete in Powerlifting?
I’m trying to! I started out with a novice competition and from there I had the bug for it. I have since competed once at Swindon Barbell’s own Wilts & Glos Champs in 2018 and I’m training hard to make sure I can keep competing at steadily higher levels.
What is your favourite lift?
Squats. As much as I hate them too, there’s nothing quite like standing up with more than your own body weight on your shoulders.
What is your coaching philosophy?
The most important part of your journey is to start it.
Once you’ve got it started it’s much easier to keep it going.
What is your specialist area?
Inclusive and Junior Powerlifting
What is your hometown?
What is your favourite food?
Garlic Mushrooms. Just on their own, fried, buttery, garlic mushrooms.
