Meet the Team

You will often hear me mention my team. So I thought it was about time that I officailly bring them to the forefront and give you a litte more inside information.


I am proud of my team and I couldnt do what I do without them. They work absolutely tirelessly to drive Pearly Bodybuilding Ltd forward. They have bought into my vision and share my goals. They go way beyond what I ask of them and because of that I owe them everything. They have allowed me to continue my journey to disrupt the stereotypical image of a female bodybuilder let alone a 58 year old who has had success in a skimpy bikini on stage. More recently they have bought to life my goal to launch a range of fitness programs to encourage ladies to build a better body and get into the gym. These will be launched in January and as I write this blog are being Beta tested for the marketplace.


So, here we go, in no particular order.................please welcome my team.


Stelf ( Steve Elford )


What a guy ! I bumped into Steve in a coffee shop in Newport. We had a coffee together and an hour later I had a web designer. I am sure in some way he regrets ever going to that coffee shop !!!!!!. If you know anything about me , you will know that I am far from conventional in my thought processes, let alone business ideas. But I found that Steve understood me straight away , gave me some ideas, and I left the coffee shop with a Latte and a promise of a website. I had been thinking about how I could share my journey but didnt have any idea how I would take the ideas to market. Not a particular fan of social media and wanted to take action that added weight to my ideas but at this time I was still scared to share all my vision , especially at this early stage. Stelf very quickly became much more than a web designer for me. He became a friend. He is calming, he is always very positive and he adds a dimension to the team that I appreciate so much. He has put the jigsaw of a million pieces ( otherwise known as my fitness courses) together and built an incredible platform for clients to use my fitness courses on. He never gets frustrated with me , or if he does he never admits it , when I come to the table with an absolutely bonkers idea of what I want to happen. Although I do realise when I do this his favourite response is "mmmmmmmm..................I will come back to that " Steve , from the bottom of my heart , Thank you so much.

Coco ( Lance Griffiths )


Another chance meeting. Coco was a regular early morning trainer at The Gym Group in Newport. I was training with a friend at the time and we both used to say what a grumpy sod he was, LOL. I now know Coco well and he is not grumpy ( really ) he is just focused. More focused than anyone else I know. Over a period we became training partners and his background as a competitive bodybuilder and PT allowed me to hatch the idea of actually stepping on stage myself. Thinking that he would lock me up and throw away the key , I struggled sharing the idea with him. I couldnt believe how positive he was and he was beside me pretty much all the way to the edge of the stage in Birmingham in March this year. He trains me, he doesnt take any of the nonsense that I regularly try and get away with. He keeps me safe, focused and especially on show day keeps my head in the game. Coco is very in tune with the path that I want to take PB Ltd on. His enthusiam and positivity takes me so far out of my comfort zone that sometimes I do not know which way is up or down !!!!! But I now understand why he does it and I couldnt wish for anyone else to be in my corner. Keep it up Coco

Pearly

I want to disrupt and stereotypical thought processes around female bodybuilding and female athletes at any age. I want to share what I have learnt in my bodybuilding career. Be living proof that you can build a better body , no matter what age. That is why I wanted PB Ltd to be an educational resource for anyone wanting to better themselves and build a better life. After all if i can do it ........any one can. And whilst I still can , I will !!!!
