Bronwyn Hadley: "It's not just about the physical."

"My first exposure to domestic violence was by my drunken father."

He stripped my mother naked and beat her in the hallway.

I was 4 years old and still remember my baby brother sleeping in the bassinet in the bedroom.  

This type of physical abuse continued on and off throughout my childhood, and stopped when I became a teenager.

I met my (soon to be husband) in high school. I ran away from home and moved in with him when I was 18. I purchased my first home at 19 and I married at 21.  I had 4 children by the time I was 26 (4 under 4).  They were, and still are, my world. But it was around this time that my husband’s drinking and physical abuse towards me commenced.

To cut a long story short, I divorced when my children were ages 3, 4, 5 and 7. My ex-husband quit his job so he didn't have to pay child support.  I took over the mortgage on my house so my children did not need to leave their family home, and I worked my way up the corporate ladder so I could continue to provide for them and put them through catholic schooling.

My life for the next 15 years was a blur.  Family Law Courts.  Death threats.  AVO's.  

Supervised access to my children. Stalking. Kidnappings. Councillors. Children's Court. Working 60 hour weeks. Dealing with teenagers’ schooling.  Dealing with teenagers’ sports.  Dealing with teenagers’ jobs.  

I can't remember doing anything for me.  There was no money.  No time.

Eleven years ago my entire world changed. I met the love of my life and the man who would become my new husband. I didn't think that men like this existed.  Needless to say my current life (whilst busy) is PERFECT!!

Why am I sharing this story with you??

I've been through hell and back. There is so much more of my story to be told. Things that have occurred (over 15 years) to me and my children that people just would not believe... I will write a book about it all one day.

I believe I went through all of this for a purpose. I believe I became a life coach for a purpose. I believe I found this program for a purpose. And I need to draw on this so I can help others.

It's been a long hard road for Bron, but putting herself first has paid off

It's not just about transforming the physical body.

It's women who have no self-worth after suffering abuse at the hands of a loved one.

It's women who have given up everything to raise their children and are not sure who they are anymore when their children leave home.

It's women who don't understand what is happening to their bodies and their minds when they face life changes like menopause.

These are the women I want to help with mindset, nutrition and movement.
