Welcome new members, Disability Sport Yorkshire

Please welcome Disability Sport Yorkshire (DSY) to the WAW family.

Disability Sport Yorkshire, legally known as the Federation of Disability Sports Organisations, was established in 1993. This organisation brought together four existing regional disability sports organisations under one umbrella. The primary mission of DSY is to address the inequality in access to sport for disabled people.

Over the years, DSY has worked tirelessly to engage disabled individuals in physical activity and enable their participation in sports at various levels. Whether it’s local settings or regional, national, and international competitions, DSY strives to create opportunities for disabled athletes. In 2014, they established their operational base in Wakefield, where they are developing the Denhale Active Recreation Centre as a centre of excellence for disability sport in Yorkshire. Their vision includes making Yorkshire the best place in England for disabled people to improve their well-being through physical activity, play sports regularly, and even become sporting champions.

As a regional organisation, DSY collaborates with leisure and sports providers to promote and deliver physical activity for disabled children and adults. Their commitment to enhancing health and well-being ensures that participants have the best possible experience. Additionally, DSY provides information, guidance, and training courses to empower disabled individuals and strengthen their voice in the sporting community.

Meet Natalie “The Wellness Mentor”

Meet Natalie, a dedicated Personal Trainer and Online Fitness Coach on a mission to empower women to prioritize their well-being over societal body standards.

Natalie embarked on her own transformative journey when she realized that conventional weight loss methods weren’t contributing to her happiness. Her life used to revolve around diets, intense workouts, and her weight, a realisation that resonated with many of her personal training clients.

In the past decade, Natalie has passionately delved into topics like diet culture, mindset, nutrition, and holistic health, crafting a lifestyle that emphasizes a well-rounded approach to overall health and wellness.

Over the last four years, she has extended her expertise through both online and in person coaching services, offering free walks, fitness classes, small group PT sessions, and personalized one-on-one training in Altofts and Wakefield. For those beyond these locations, Natalie provides dedicated 1-1 online coaching.

Natalie’s mission is clear: liberate women from the restrictive diet mindset, so they can live a lifestyle aligned with their individual goals.
