Ordinary Athlete’s extraordinary person this week is James Peters. Here’s a bit more about James. Championing and empowering others through his own journey of mental health is that his heart and soul. He lost his dad and son within six months of each other, and daily battles anxiety, sadness and grief. James is now a mental health first-aided, does a huge amount for charity and is an absolute training machine. And full of light and kindness. Follow his journey on Instagram at @jamespeterslifestyle and in his words, ‘Be a master of the mind, not mastered by the mind.’ Strength in adversity.
Welcome to Ordinary Athletes extraordinaries! A new feature will be doing weekly. We wanted to tell you a bit more about Steph. At the age of 13 she had an accident that left her registered disabled. 10 years ago she had a major operation and is on a journey, breaking boundaries and pushing through any limitations on what she was told her mind and body could or couldn’t do. Follow her journey on Instagram at the @fauxathlete – we love her!
