Welcome back to Chat Sh*t Get Fit - This week is a one-off special where we are joined by the inspirational Rebecca Slater. Just over 5 years ago she was involved in a serious car accident that led to her having her right arm amputated. She was given two choices. Accept what's happened, move on with her life and try to make the best of it or let it consume her and spend the rest of her life thinking what if. She decided the former as you'll soon find out.
As well as being the current World Strongest Disabled Woman she is also
Britains Disabled Strongwoman 2021
Arnold’s Sports Festival UK 2021
WR Holder x 3
GB Women’s Sitting Volleyball squad
So yeah an outrageous set of titles there. To follow her on this journey check out her Instagram!
It's not all be plain sailing though. She has had to battle hard to get where she is not only physically but mentally. Becca is super passionate about mental health and this led us to discuss how her mental health struggles have been far greater than her physical ones. She also offers some much-accepted advice for anyone out there going through a trauma. Key point: Trauma is subjective. Never think yours isn't worth mentioning.
For help with mental health
