Sarah Bridges portrait

I started training at 21 as I was unhappy with the way I looked - 6 foot 2 inches tall and weighing under 9 stone! Being tall and long-limbed, I found it difficult to pack on muscle, however, I kept at it and took my first bodybuilding show in 1992, coming 2nd in the content. In the same year, I also went on to win my weight class in a show called "Stars of Tomorrow."

Further honours followed (See my Honours page for full details) until in 1996, after coming first in the East Midlands Championships, I went through to compete in the British Championships coming 8th. In 1997 I took a year out from competitions, and, during this period my husband Bill, the ex-World Heavyweight Wrestling Champion known as "Wayne Bridges", and I bought 'The Bridges' public house in Horton Kirby in Kent (further details on my Links page). Returning to competitions in 1998, I came second in the Midlands Qualifier for the British Championships and took 5th place in the British Finals. This was followed a year later with a 1st in the Qualifier and a 6th place in the Finals. In 2000 I took 2nd place in the Qualifier and 6th place in the Finals. I starred in my first film "The Good Thief" in 2001 (see more in the Media page).

In May 2002 I won the London South East Qualifiers. At the same time I began to get advice from Kerry Kayes of CHEMICAL NUTRITION on nutrition, diet and training which, over a period of five months, propelled me to 2nd place in the British Championships. This gave me a great start to 2003, but unfortunately three weeks prior to the British Championships, I was bitten by a dog leaving me with a finger crushed and  broken in four places. This forced me to spend a week in hospital and gave me concern about my training schedule. However, once again CHEMICAL NUTRITION came to my rescue, and with the help of Kerry Hayes and John Hodgson I went on to win the British Championships. I will be eternally grateful to Kerry and John. In my opinion CHEMICAL NUTRITION products are second to none.

2003 proved quite good as I also became judge for my Federation E.F.B.B with help from Sugar and Wand Tierney and also had the honour of being asked by Kerry Kayes to present the medals at the English Grand Prix to the professional male bodybuilders. I also gave nutrition and training advice at DROP KIXX WRESTLING ACADEMY (click on Links for details). In December 2003, after winning the British Heavyweight Female Bodybuilding title, I turned professional. In additional to my many activities I enjoy visiting different gyms to encourage and help other girls to compete. I al always at the EFBB shows, so any of you girls that are interested, please come along and I will only be too glad to be of assistance. I am also a judge for the UK bodybuilding Federation - to find out more click on www.ukbff.co.uk.
