Mayyah Blair Commando Temple


Mayyah has a long history of involvement in health and fitness, having been competitive in a wide range of sports from an early age. Being strong, able and active was always a natural form of self-expression for her, so it felt like a natural progression for her to study within this field.

After school, and a successful stint in track athletics, Mayyah then went on to study a BSc (Hons) in Sports Science and Physiology at Leeds University, where she further honed her knowledge of the science behind top sports performance, and factors that may limit it; with a particular interest in cardiac physiology and sudden cardiac episodes within athletes.

Following this she spent 4 years as an outdoor activity instructor teaching both children and adults a multitude of disciplines ranging from surfing and kayaking to air rifle shooting and archery. She is passionate about showing others the benefit of enjoying great movement and building confidence with strength.

Over the last 9 years, Mayyah has been a huge advocate for strength training for women. She’s been heavily involved in promoting and competing within the sport of Strongwoman, as well as introducing absolute novices to the benefits of being strong. She is now a multiple world record holder in grip sport, has been an active competitor in the sport of Strongwoman and stone lifting and placed 3rd at Britain’s Strongest Woman in 2015 and Qualified for Europe’s Strongest Woman in the same year.

Mayyah would describe herself as a hybrid athlete, and will often be found running slightly insane trail races both in the UK and abroad, and finished in the top 25 female finishers in the Marathon des Sables 2018 (250km race through the Sahara Desert) and top 3 in the Atlantic Coast Challenge 2018 (3 trail marathons in 3 days).
