Would you like to be part of a bodybuilding competition team?
The team leaders are Mark & Clare Bennett who started their competition career in 2013 after spending many years training in a gym.
Mark said “we have always had a passion for bodybuilding training and used to dream of getting on stage together. When we started we had to learn by our own mistakes so when we bought home our first trophy it was the biggest buzz! It is not just about us winning, we are just as passionate about leading the team to success. We enjoy the excitement of competition and get just as much from watching our members win too. It is hard preparing for competition and having a support network around you can be the difference between getting it to the stage or quitting!”
Clare believes that being in shape is the best confidence and self-esteem booster you can have – “Training for me is my way of life and not just winning a competition. I am my biggest critique and each day I think, what can I do better and is what I am doing taking me closer to my goal? It can be a tough journey getting stage ready and you need to be mentally prepared to sit out on life for a few months if you want to achieve a podium place. Doing this half-heartedly is not an option, you are either in or you are out. The window to success is narrow and you need to be 100% committed to the end goal. I have trained for over 25 years but only really got the results that I wanted after I committed to the goal of getting on stage. Now my body is in the best shape ever whether it’s competition prep season or not.
There is a saying in the competition world that everyone on stage is a winner. This is because many people start the journey but only a few get to the end. This is why you need a team behind you to support and guide you to a successful end.
Women shouldn’t be intimidated to come into the gym, everyone has to start somewhere and you should never compare your beginning to someone else’s middle. Stand proud that you are there, you are doing better than 80% of the population!
