For 40 years I lived in an abusive relationship. I was mentally and physically abused by the man who had promised to love, honor and cherish me. Six months after finally finding freedom from that life I was downsized from the job I loved. I felt lost,
rejected and useless. After 2 years of feeling sorry for myself and 30 pounds of extra weight I decided to join Gold's Gym and fix the problem. My trainer, Mick Kennedy, believed the best weight loss happened from muscle building so he started me on a program utilizing dumb bells and machines. Soon after he introduced me to the barbell and the dead lift, I was hooked! I love powerlifting and the power and confidence it gives me. In January of this year I competed in the ADFPF Missouri State
Powerlifting and Single Event Championships and World Qualifiers in
Columbia and not only set a new Dead Lift PR (231.5) but qualified for a
chance at a World Title in Antwerp, Belgium in June. My desire is to go to Belgium and prove to myself and other seniors that we are not limited by age or past circumstances to achieve our dreams. Life is not over because we are over 60. My past and Mick Kennedy has made me stronger than I ever thought possible.
