Coaches That Practice What They Preach.
All my life I have had a love for sport and fitness. I played ruby league until the age of 17, at which time I jointed the Royal Australian Navy. During my career in the Navy I played rugby union.
In July 2007 my life got thrown a curve ball. I injured my back. From then it has been a long road to recovery. It took 6 1/2 years of physiotherapy and hydrotherapy to get my back to a level to start training again. In this time I put on a lot of unwanted kgs.
In early 2015 I grew a passion for Powerlifting. I started training for my first novice powerlifting comp that was in September. Since then I haven’t looked back. I have since then competed in:
- 2016 CAPO States (1st in the 100kg weight class)
- 2016 CAPO Nationals (1st in the 100kg weight class)
- 2016 GPC Sydney Cup (2nd in the 100kg weight class)
- 2017 GPC States (4th place 700kg total)
- 2017 GPC Nationals
- 2017 GPC National Push/Pull (1st place NSW Leg)
- 2018 Pro Raw Bench Only (195kg Bench)
My best lifts are:
- Squat 270kg
- Bench 195kg
- Deadlift 272.5kg
Why do I coach? I want to see my clients achieve their goals and enjoy life.
My name is Kristen Scott. I’m a coach at Hunter Strength and Performance located in the Hunter Valley, NSW.
I have always had a passion for fitness and have had a love for the gym from a young age, thanks to my Mumma. I love strength training and Powerlifting because the results are endless, whether its strength gains or body re-composition.
In 2016, after a long battle with PTSD and not being able to drop excess body fat. I decided it was time to dig deep and achieve a long term dream. I made a commitment to compete in body building in season B, in just 6 months from starting with a new coach I was on stage. I competed in Figure in ANB Natural federation.
