Michelle Bossing MS!

Natural Physique member Michelle this past weekend attended a paralympic trial for the British paracycling team. Michelle was picked due to her success in an earlier trial. She was diagnosed with MS (multiple sclerosis) 6 years ago and after getting over the initial shock she fought back.

Her big goal was to make the paralympic cycling team due to being a keen cyclist. We worked hard together on resistance training, bike work and also her nutrition and supplementation while listening closely to her body due to her body not recovering the same as someone without a condition.

The big weekend came and she worked hard at the trial but unfortunately she couldn’t be classified. The reason being, in the assessors own words, ‘you are too strong, too fit and have rehabbed yourself so well that we can’t classify you!’ . We were gutted in a way at first as it seemed the dream was over and we done “too well” but the most important thing is health. MS is very unpredictable, you never know what is around the corner. But with exercise, good nutrition and a very positive attitude it can be fought and held back.

So, whatever your goal, whether you have a condition, disability or are as healthy as can be, just go for it. Don’t let the dream go.

So congratulations to Michelle for working hard and getting that trial in the first place and Bossing MS! The dream isn’t over.

London To Brighton Bike Ride For The MS Society (Multiple Sclerosis)

I have had the 'bright' idea of doing this charity event on my BMX (my other passion).  Some of you may know, some don't know, but my girlfriend Michell  and Team Natural Physique member, was diagnosed with MS 3 years ago, a devastating time.  The first thing I thought of was she will be in a wheelchair, Michelle knew nothing about MS!  Did you know more than 100,000 people have MS in the UK?   We are both doing this ride (Michelle has a separate fundraising page) to raise awareness of this awful condition and to raise money for the wonderful charity MS Society who not only help with care but also fund research to BEAT MS FOR GOOD! Treatment has advanced so much over the last few years that this needs to carry on to find a cure. My pain and discomfort will only last a few short hours where someone with MS their pain and discomfort will last for life.....or will it?  PLEASE HELP AND DONATE - AND PLEASE COULD YOU SHARE, THANK YOU :-)
