So proud of this lady Julia Fabrizi : Julia won gold in both 2km and 500m in her age group at the British Rowing Indoor Championships and set championship records in both events... Here's what she had to say...
"I first started training with Exclusive PT when I was still a competitive powerlifter. I had competed in the world powerlifting championships in 2016 but was struggling with a shoulder injury and long term back problem which was affecting all my lifts. Luke made some technical changes, especially on my bench and squat, which have allowed me to continue training relatively pain free for the last 3 years.
I also started rowing competitively in 2016 and Luke managed to set my training so that I didn't lose strength during the regatta season. For the last couple of years Luke has managed to make changes to my program to accommodate my ever changing training needs and I found that my lifts actually improved during this time. This is despite doing long hours on the water which I previously found affected my strength.
In 2018 I competed at the British Rowing Indoor Championships and won bronze and silver in the 2km and 500m events for my masters age group. During 2019 Luke again adapted my strength training, so that it is more focused on rowing, which has improved my power and overall performance.
On 7th December 2019 I won gold in both 2km and 500m in my age group at the British Rowing Indoor Championships and set championship records in both events. Luke is now helping me prepare for the world championships in Paris in February this year.
Luke is a great coach. He is knowledgeable and knows how much and when to push me. Having been quite injury prone in the last few years, I have always felt safe lifting with Luke because he never sacrifices technique to hit numbers. I have repeatedly changed focus over the last 3 years but he has remained supportive and helped me transition from powerlifter to rower with little loss in strength. My training is always varied and I would definitely recommend online strength and conditioning coaching with Luke to improve your performance in any sport."
