Embracing Strength and Grace - Beyond the Bodybuilding Stage

In the world of bodybuilding, we often find ourselves confined to the gym, lifting weights, and showcasing our hard-earned physique on stage. However, my journey isn't just about flexing muscles and striking poses. It's about breaking stereotypes and proving that strength and grace go hand in hand.

Recently, I ventured into the world of pole dancing—a challenging yet incredibly empowering experience. Shannon, the lady who runs Wight Arts in Ryde on the Isle of Wight was absolutely amazing. In our little chat she explained that her initial anxiety stopped her attending the gym let alone pole dancing. It was so inspiring to meet such a talented lady that had a similar story to mine.

The evening meant that it wasn't about competing with anyone but myself, pushing my boundaries, and discovering a new form of fitness that combines strength, flexibility, and a touch of artistry.

In the pole dancing studio, I faced challenges that were different from the ones in the weight room. It required not only physical strength but also balance, coordination, and a bit of courage. And you know what? It was invigorating!

This experience taught me that our fitness journey should be diverse, embracing various forms of exercise that not only challenge our bodies but also stimulate our minds. Pole dancing, with its blend of athleticism and art, provided a refreshing break from the traditional bodybuilding routine.

More to follow...........hopefully LOL
