Bronwyn first started weight training in 2010 to improve her other sports, martial arts in particular. She very quickly found out that her strengths lay in powerlifting /strength sports. Bronwyn made her first statement when at just 15 she deadlifted 125kg (raw) which was twice her body weight! This was recorded by a national newspaper.
In September 2011 she competed in her first powerlifting competition. After only training for under a year Bronwyn set a new Scottish record by lifting a combined weight of 290 kilograms (45st 9lbs) at the Scottish Open championships in Glasgow! Then in December 2011 she competed in the Commonwealth Powerlifting Championships in Bournemouth. This was only her second competition but her result was staggering! Winning 4 gold medals and breaking 3 British Records - Bench, Deadlift and Total Weight Lifted – all raw! In February this year, she competed in the British Bench Press Championships in Northampton and won both gold and silver medals (she is now titled Sub-Junior British Bench Press Champion). In May, she attended the Body Power Expo in Birmingham where she was photographed in action by Muscle & Fitness Magazine. A few days later, she represented GB at the World Bench Press Championships in Pilsen (Czech) and returned to Scotland at the end of that week to compete in the Scottish Open Championship in Glasgow.
The speed at which she has progressed is fantastic and although she is training exceptionally hard she is staying injury free due to the care and attention of her father Andrew, who is also her coach.
Bronwyn is a true ambassador for all strength sports for young people and spends a lot of her time helping:
“There are definitely not enough girls my age in the sport. I am hoping that the message is getting across that girls can lift heavy weights and still look feminine. I try to encourage them with help and advice both in the gym and also online. I have many young folk on my fan page and they often ask me a lot of questions.”
Bronwyn not content with just powerlifting decided to have a go at a Strongwoman event. With just one week’s training she competed in Britain’s Strongest Woman. And yet again her results were great finishing 6th out of 9 in the under 75kg category. Bronwyn is a true athlete and has now set her sights on the Olympics and hopes to compete in the 2016 games.
Power lifter Bronwyn Taylor completed a 125kg Raw Deadlift at just 15 2x her bodyweight.
