Rhiannon came to Gus with an extensive background in bodybuilding. Her main goal was to improve her body composition utilising the realistic, healthier and holistic approach Lifters League adopts. Rhiannon responded extremely well to the methods utilised, that being an increase in food intake and rest/recovery, with an implementation of heavy strength training. Powerlifting became a natural extension of this goal as she exceeded her expectations lifting weights she had never achieved before.
Some of her achievements to date working with Gus:
- Competing at GPC Nationals 2017 – Placed 1st U75s with 500kg total
- Competing at GPC Sydney Cup 2017 – Placed 1st U75s with 532.5kg total
- Holds the GPC National Deadlift Record for U75s at 225kgs
- Holds the GPC National Total Record for U75s at 532.5kgs
