Redditch powerlifter goes from strength to strength

Redditch Editorial 7th Feb, 2019   0

A MEDAL-winning powerlifter and single mother of two is now hosting training sessions for the GB team at her new gym in Redditch.

Kelly Phasey, aged 42, recently moved her Kelly Phasey Fitness brand to a new location on Windsor Road, Enfield.

As well as her day-to-day personal training and group exercise classes which include a ladies only ‘Sisters of Strength’ community, she is also running training sessions for British Powerlifting members of the GB Powerlifting Team.

“I work on functional fitness as well as strength and conditioning in classes and as a personal trainer,” said Kelly. “My clients range from an 18 year-old cricketer to a 65 year-old looking to get fitter.”

Kelly had a dramatic career change six years ago when she decided to leave retail work behind and began studying for a degree in Sports Science and most recently a Masters in strength and conditioning.

She was previously a tight head prop for Worcester Ladies Rugby Club, finally retiring after the team won the Ladies’ Premiership in 2013.

It was while working at a gym in Droitwich that Kelly was encouraged to try powerlifting.

She went on to win silver at last summer’s European Masters Equipped Powerlifting Championships and Bronze Medal at the European Bench Press Championships.

This was achieved alongside being crowned British Champion six times and setting numerous records, adding to her sporting achievements, all of which has contributed to help Kelly build her brand.

Ian Parker, a director at commercial property agents John Truslove, helped Kelly secure her move.

He said: “We look forward to seeing the gym go on to great success and Kelly and the GB team winning more medals.”
