Steph has been with Central Athlete since August 2016. She is a great example of why Individually Designed Fitness is far superior than “online programming”.
Steph came to us with specific goals:
1. Improve her performance in the CrossFit Open
2. Reach her maximum potential in weightlifting
After her initial testing phase we identified weakness and created objectivity around improving those.
As a result - she improved 71 spots in the Open:
2016 CF Open - 215th
2017 CF Open - 144th
Her most recent personal achievements include being named a member of the Australian Weightlifting Team for the Oceanic Titles in the Gold Coast, as well as unofficially breaking the Axle Clean and Press record for Australia.
