Arlette Bomahou is 40 years of age, she is a Part time Digital Marketing Consultant for Tony Quinn Health Centre, a Member of the Irish Drug Free Power-lifting Association since August 2013, she have 10 years of weight training,1 year of strength & conditioning with Qualification in Sports Level 3 Gym instructor and Level 4 Personal trainer certificate recognized by REP in May/June 2014
She is born in North of France in Caen in 1975, her mother is from Togo and her father from Benin they both moved in France in the 70’s to study French. When she was a teenager she was very good in sport but didn’t take it seriously she was practicing athletics and basket-ball. Arlette dream was to be air hostess and live in the states. Michael Jordan and Carl Lewis were her ultimate hero. She was big into Madonna too she wishes she could be as extrovert as she was as an artist. Arlette always felt she would live abroad or travel a lot. She was always fascinated about foreign languages and cultures.
Arlette passion for sport and foreign languages took her to Amsterdam where she lived for nearly 6 years. She worked for Nike and loved it then she decided to move to Ireland to discover a new country and culture. After 10 years living in Ireland she is still enjoying it and hope to raise a family here.
Reason why Arlette decided to get into power-lifting, She has been doing weight training for the past 10 years in order to get into better shape and live a healthier life style. It has helped her to lose up to 10 kg but more importantly to improve her body shape and level of fitness. If it was not for her personal trainer Adrian Quinn with whom she have been working since 2010, she would never have tried to compete in Power-lifting. He saw the potential in her while she was not aware of. In 2011 he suggested that she should compete, but she didn’t have enough confidence back then. In August this year she turned 38 years old and she decided she needed to achieve something for herself before she turned 40. So she jumped in at the deep end by participating in her first competition in Cork in August 2013 in the Mardyke stadium. Since then she fell in love with this sport that today made her an outstanding African here in Ireland and also among our communities.
Arlette achievements to date are as follow, she is an inspiring young woman making us proud to be one.
