Hi, my name is Duncan and I have just enrolled as a mature student at the University of Gloucestershire and have joined their Strength Club. They have some good weight training equipment in the strength and conditioning suite but no strongman equipment and I want to change that.
I have always loved strongman and strength sports in general and began training and competing for it in 2006 and as someone that suffers with mental and physical health issues I know just how important exercise and being involved in something is so beneficial for your overall well being that I believe expanding the Strength Club to being able to provide the students with the choice of becoming strongmen and women would be.
Strongman and strongwoman has never been bigger and the UK is at the forefront of the growth of the sport and if we can start a movement to enable University students to start training young with expert tuition then we can really start something big and help it grow even more and help the UK to dominate the sport for generations to come, and hopefully other universities will follow suit.
So please give generously and help us to provide these students with the basic kit needed to get started in such an amazing sport.
