My Background in Powerlifting
I’ve always loved the gym, ever since I was in high school and I was introduced to weight training by the school soccer coach as part of our conditioning. I first got into powerlifting in 2014 after a quite severe relapse with anorexia, and my employer suggested powerlifting as part of my recovery process as it would teach me to fuel my body with food.
I have been competing since mid-2016, and have competed at a national level here in Australia. Powerlifting has provided me with not only strength but an outlet for my everyday stress. In general, it has greatly improved my mindset and taught me that I have to nourish my body in order to be able to progress with the sport, as well as be resilient in the face of criticism.
