Britain's Toughest Women spotlights some of the toughest female bodyguards, bouncers, bodybuilders, boxers, martial artists and MMA fighters in the UK; women who live, work or play in a tough world. Biography based chapters, looking at their past, present and plans for the future, what inspires and motivates them, and why they do what they do! For some it's having a tough, challenging or traumatic upbringing, or feeling an underachiever at home or at school, or being bullied, or abused, or being pushed into things by their friends or family, or just overcoming life's challenges. For others it's solely their mindset and attitude, or simply following their dreams. It can be all sorts of things, and each person has their own, unique and fascinating story. All the women featured here have chosen to be recognised for doing something exceptional and different; from working on the front-line in Iraq, to standing on stage as a competitive bodybuilder or entering the arena as an MMA fighter or boxer. This book not only aims to spotlight these incredible women, but aims to motivate and inspire others, and to show that whatever background you're from, and whatever challenges and difficulties you've had, you can achieve too.
