Her journey, sparked by a need for focus in her late thirties, propelled her from amateur competitions to claiming the UK pro bikini champion title within two years.

A Day in the Life
Her routine is a testament to her commitment: early mornings at the gym, work, managing her children’s schedules, and unwinding with studying or meditation before bed.

Her packed day leaves little room for idleness but provides immense satisfaction.

She acknowledges the extreme nature of physique competitions, cautioning against aspiring to such standards.

Resolute and Drug-Free
Unlike some in the industry, Bull refuses performance-enhancing substances.

Her commitment stems from a genuine satisfaction in her progress without resorting to shortcuts.

A Glimpse of Struggle and Strength

A Life Beyond Expectations
Bull’s family background, marked by tragedy, contrasts with her impactful career and unexpected foray into bodybuilding.

Her determination to inspire mothers to pursue their passions after childbirth fuels her ambition to continue competing.
