If you are the girl, the woman who feels like she is never enough – that she will never be as strong, as good, as capable – I am here to tell you that you are enough. I am here to tell you that while it shouldn’t have been your burden, you can write a different story.
Now a competitive amateur powerlifter who can lift over twice her body weight, journalist Poorna Bell is the strongest she has ever been both physically and mentally.
Join her for this virtual event to celebrate the publication of her new book: part memoir, part manifesto, Stronger documents her journey to getting physically strong. It started with a heavy mattress that needed flipping and the realisation that – following the death of her husband, Rob – she had been relying on the men in her life to take the bins out, carry the luggage and move furniture.
In conversation, Poorna will explore women’s strength and fitness, and how we can tap into the reservoir of mental strength we each have. She’ll detail how weightlifting helped her to find the confidence that physical pursuits can amplify – the confidence that has been helping men to succeed in their careers their whole lives – and that women can find too. As well as sharing her own story, Poorna will draw on research and tell the stories other women who’ve forged their own path. Doing away with old-fashioned notions and long-held beliefs about strength, she’ll lay out how strength can work for you no matter what your age and goal might be.
Regardless of ability or background, whether you’re into weightlifting, running, swimming, yoga or don’t consider yourself to be sporty at all, Poorna is here to teach us about that strength that is generated from your own graft, personal goals and achievement, and how it is something that no one can take from you. Don’t miss it.
