Over the weekend we had Theresa hit the platform for the 1st time. This was a long time coming for this queen as competing has been something she has been talking about and toying with for quite some time, never believing she would actually be able to do it.
Theresa has been training with BBB for well over 2 years now and her
growth has been incredible to watch! Sunday was a true testament to all
of the hard work and dedication she has been putting in over the years
both inside and outside of the gym.
This babe’s journey to the platform saw her experience every emotion under the sun, from feeling on top of the world, buzzing with excitement, to having knots in her stomach and being incredibly nervous. Well Sunday was no different!
Theresa’s nerves were high from the second we got to the venue although she was able to channel her nervous energy into the task at hand, managing herself and her energy incredibly well throughout the day.
Hitting 3/3 on her squats AND a new PB, her energy was high but there was also a sigh of relief.
We hit bench press with the same focus and intention which saw her again hit 3/3.
However the nerves crept back in as deadlifts approached. This had been Theresa’s most inconsistent lift leading into comp but she wasn’t going to let this dictate the outcome. She gave it her everything on her 3rd attempt but she just didn’t have it in her on Sunday. Still, she walked away pleased knowing that she didn’t give up and elated that her 2nd lift moved so well yet she hadn’t been able to move the same weight in training. Another PB!
Finishing the day 8/9 and executing her lifts really nicely, this babe walked away with 2nd place in her weight class and a smile on her face that you couldn’t wipe off even if you tried. Theresa gained so much more than the number on the plates and the medal around her neck; there were so many lessons learnt along the way that saw her grow to new heights and discover inner strength she didn’t know existed.
Incredible work babe!
We cannot wait to see what is coming next!
