Hi I'm new


Hi everyone,

I’m new to this site so I thought I'd pop on & say Hello ... my username means World's Strongest Man Fan, just in case anyone was curious or thought it meant Weston-Super-Mare.

I’m a middle aged woman with what some consider to be an unhealthy obsession (I call it passion) for Strongman - I used to compete locally, but sadly my Fibromyalgia has crushed my dreams of going pro, so now I lift heavy & dream big in my basement.

I lost 11stone between 2012 & 2014, got into lifting (powerlifting back then) & from about 2015 my health has declined & weight has crept back up, so I’m aiming to re-lose 2stone.

I eat, sleep & drink strength - I will happily talk your ear off about weights, strength, muscles, nutrition & Strongman (Stoltmans, Robert Oberst, Mark Felix, Brian Shaw, JF Caron, Oleskii Novikov & many more) & I have quite an impressive (so I’m told) basement gym.

I’m here to lose weight & help others do the same, but if I can talk strength in the process I will be an incredibly happy person.

Anyway thanks for reading. I’m sure you’ll be hearing from me again soon

Seriously impressive home gym, I’m so jealous! The gyms being closed is so difficult, at least you still have a space to call your own and to zone out and get your training done! How’s are things going? I don’t have much space unfortunately, so I dismantled my dining room table, put a large judo mat down and do my deadlifting etc on that, (as my teenage daughter watches in horror from the sofa haha she thinks I’m mad!)
