Profile Information

My "Proud ME" Story:
My BodyPROUD story describes my journey following the early diagnosis of my son with a Global Developmental Delay and Complex Special Needs. It tells of our frequent struggles and the twists and turns encountered, whilst breaking down negative social barriers and fighting for one's basic human rights all at the same time. Although the quest for justice can be a painful and monumental task, it is your duty to step forward and be counted, for without a voice - you surely have nothing BUT with the 'right' voice -
"your only limitation is YOUR mind!"

As a dedicated, determined and disciplined fitness individual, resistance training enabled me to hide behind my true devastated feelings surrounding my son's disabilities. I channeled my negative energy into grueling weight training and cardiovascular fitness workouts to temporarily ease the burdens of reality. Whilst my physical being was undergoing a dramatic transformation, I was also embarking on a profound mental, emotional and spiritual journey, as I battled with my fears and anxieties regarding what life had in store for my son and I.

By God's grace I have learned that the true test and strength of a man is not in his moments of comfort but undoubtedly in his times of challenge and controversy. My mind, body and spirit have been challenged continually, however through God's strength, I am now more purposeful, more passionate and more powerful than ever before.

It is the broken, who become masters at mending and so my purpose driven passion is to continually develop personal growth for myself and others through mind, body and spiritual well-being. Having a positive impact on the Life, Health and Prosperity of those that cross my path is my ultimate goal.

I am an avid Alpine and Nordic skier and have been fortunate to ski the mountains in Europe, North America and Canada. I also enjoy scuba diving and riding my motorbike.
What Made Me "ME"
My Higher Power
My Body Proud Moments
Increasing my media profile in the United States.
Experience, Awareness, or Life Lesson that Enriched ME:
Stretching My Comfort Zone
REGRET looks back, WORRY looks around but FAITH looks upwards and onwards SEEING the invisible, BELIEVING the incredible and RECEIVING the impossible.
Talents I Wish to Hone.
I competed in the 2008 UK Gladiators television show. I was selected out of 10,000 applicants and was the oldest female contender on the series. It was an awesome experience and achievement for me to be wrestling with athletes half my age and also weighing up to 32kg heavier than I do. I definitely learned that your only limitation is your mind.

I competed in August 2009 in London, UK in my very first FAME competition.
FAME UK - August 2009
1st place - Muscle Model Open
2nd Runner Up - Figure Pose & Routine Open

It truly was an awesome experience! Being 'Body Proud' enabled me to be even more 'Purposely Driven with Passion'

FAME NA Championships - November 2009
1st place - Muscle Model Advanced
1st Runner Up - Figure Pose & Routine - Advanced
2nd Runner Up - Figure Physique Masters

FAME WORLD Championships - November 2010
1st Runner Up - Muscle Model Pro

FAME UK - June 2011
2nd Runner Up - Muscle Model Open
My Passion Project:
I am a certified Personal Trainer and Nutrition Specialist, Pro Athlete, Life-Coach and Social- Media Entrepreneur. In addition, I am also an actress, a certified make-up artist and an advocate for persons with 'Special Needs'. I am in my early forties and come from a dynasty of health and fitness professionals.
Areas I wish to Solve / Resolve / Enrich:
Teacher, Personal Trainer &/or Fitness Professional, Parent, Entrepreneur, Health & Lifestyle, Entertainment Industry, Professional, Artist, Model, Other
My Philosophy / Message / Wisdom:
Winning a Special Educational Needs tribunal for my son which allowed him to attend a residential special needs school that would adequately cater for his complex learning difficulties.

Winning a Hospital Medical Negligence court case for my son when he lost a testicle after suffering a testicular torsion as an inpatient and received no medical attention for over 10 hours
My Inspiration:
Players I Wish to Associate With and Why:

In April 2011, I co-authored a book entitled "Multiple Streams of Determination" featuring Les Brown, Jim Rohn and a number of other celebrity Motivational Speakers. In this inspirational collection of real-life situations, I have been provided with a global platform to share my bodyPROUD journey so far.....

It's available for purchase from my website www.yvetteshaw.com.
Look for ME Here:
First things first - one must ask themselves, 'what is it that only I can do, or do best?' Only when you've answered that question will you know what you should do!

Good intentions are not an acceptable excuse for doing nothing!
My GAME Play Strategy:
For the past 15 years, I have been sculpting my body using weights and by performing interval cardiovascular training. Correct nutrition, adequate sleep and minimizing stressful situations also play an integral role in my lifestyle. As such, all of these components are vital in order to continually improve my personal best.
Skills I Have:
To portray a unique body sculpture that captivates artistic, sensual and feminine curves and to continually walk my talk.
Referred by (and why):
For many years a friend of mine had been trying to
persuade me to compete in Fitness modeling but to no avail. In 2009, I decided to join the BodyPROUD community and compete in the FAME World Tour.

I'm excited to say that having done so, I qualified for my WNSO Pro Athlete card in the muscle model category.

Thankyou for adding me as a friend!

great video and congradulations on the accomplishments of you son and yourself.

I defiantly identified with the eating as a way to cope thing.  I hope to find a way around that soon.

Thanks again.
