We are excited to introduce our latest FRACTEL Ambassador in Steve Roberts. Steve's a very well respected figure in the health and fitness industry which is seen through his business, Infinite Fitness Peninsula as well as his current sport - triathlon. He's no stranger to fighting injuries and setbacks and at only 29 years of age, he's got an exciting future ahead. Welcome aboard Steve! Here's to a massive 2019.
Here's an insight into the life of Steve Roberts:
" **Background - My name is Steve Roberts; I am 29 years old and live on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula. I have been competing in triathlon for the past 12 months but growing up I was always involved in AFL & cricket. I am currently a part of the i4-coaching group with my personal coach being a former Australian Triathlete. I am an electrician by trade but decided to follow my passion over 6 years ago now and started my career in the fitness industry. I worked for a number of years as a sub contractor but now part own “Infinite Fitness Peninsula” along side my business partner.
**Business – We opened the doors of IFP in December 2016 and have since forged a very strong membership base of over 200 members. We specialize in semi private group training and employee a number of super trainers who live by our business values. We believe firmly that there are NO quick fixes when it comes to your health and fitness and that you should always do your homework prior to singing up to gyms, as there are a lot of “cowboys” out there!! Come down and say hi if you live in and around the area of Cranbourne J
**Transition into Triathlon – Unfortunately in my sporting career I have endured a number of serious injuries, which forced me to give away my beloved AFL football dream. I played a number of years at senior level with Frankston YCW football club but after 3 knee reconstructions it was time for change. This led me to triathlon, I competed in a mini length tri in Port Arlington and since then I haven’t looked back. Just two months ago I competed in my first Olympic length tri, I finished 2nd in my age group and 11th overall. My next big race will be in April where I will compete in the “Challenge Melbourne” which is Half Iron Man distance (1.9km swim, 90km bike, 21km run). My long-term goal for triathlon is to make the world championships in the Half Iron Man distance.
**WHY I do what I do -
- The main reason why I go to work day after day is to help people. I love to help people reach their goals; it’s an amazing feeling knowing that we can help over 200 people improve their lives on a daily basis.
- I have always been competitive (in anything) so my drive to win is why I consistently train as hard as I possibly can. I also thoroughly enjoy been outdoors and feeling fit and healthy, training is well and truly a part of my life!
Thanks for reading and what a privilege it is to be a part of the “Fractel Team”!! "
