This week I noticed a big jump in my training after doing exercises to control glute and hamstring activation, and again getting stronger and stronger with activating my powerhouse !

Amateur to Professional Triathlete with Pilates For Sports

Aug 14, 2018

Since beginning with the Pilates For Sports team during the winter of 2015, pilates has played a pivotal role in my development as an athlete and has been integral in my progression from decent amateur to amateur World Champion and now professional triathlete. 

Pilates is providing me with highest quality, targeted injury prevention and strengthening program allowing me to perform and function at my best, both during training and racing.  I have remained injury free, have again increased thresholds and have continued to refine all aspects of my performance with the help of PFS.  This has culminated with an Ironman personal best at Ironman Cairns in June of this year and an overall finish position of 4th.

How Pilates helped Steve Qualify For Kona

I have continually noticed improvement on the bike over the time I have been working with the PFS team and following the 10PFS program.

At Ironman Australia I realised a long held dream of qualifying for the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii on the back of a very strong bike ride.
