I Am Perfection w/ Isabella von Weissenberg
After she began powerlifting in 2013, Isabella quickly rose to international level. She made her debut on the Swedish National team in 2015, earning a bronze medal overall at the Classic World Championships and a European record in the squat. Today she is the current and seven-time IPF raw world record holder in the squat in the -72kg category, the European record holder with a 512.5kg total and 500+ Wilks, twofold European champion and a three time World Championship medalist. In 2017 she was voted IPF Female Lifter of the Year and in 2018 she became the lightest woman in the IPF to squat 200kg in sleeves. While Isabella was making her presence felt as a fierce competitor in the International Powerlifting Federation, she was also developing the foundation of her coaching skills. Over the years, she has coached lifters both online and one on one in a variety of formats, as well as handled competitors at both Swedish and US National Championships. For the past two years, she has held powerlifting seminars all over the world and lectured on Mindset and the psychological aspects of lifting, presenting at events such as the European Powerlifting Conference 2018 in Dublin and The Global Strength Summit 2019 in Dubai. Much of her coaching style is built upon the psychological education she gained from social work studies between 2015 and 2018 at Gothenburg University. Isabella believes that to effectively help clients reach their goals, motivation and mental challenges must be understood and taken into account with equal respect as the physical preparations. The unique experiences of a fast rise to international success, formal education, and practical client work, has given her a solid understanding for the mental rigors that go along with competition at any level. Her ability to listen to athletes, empathize, and challenge them when necessary is one of many major tools to helps lifters achieve their potential on the platform.

Building a Multi Million Dollar Empire with Mike Bouranis
About Mike Bouranis He is a coach and trainer on a mission to make things simpler for you. I'll be honest. Growing up, I was never really into fitness. I loved skateboarding, going to concerts, and hanging out with my friends. Although I played multiple sports growing up, it was never really my passion. That is until I went to college and began learning more about the body, its systems, and its ability to adapt to training. You see, I've always loved puzzles. Whether it be crosswords, riddles, or even figuring out how to perfect a trick while skateboarding - figuring out the solution to a problem always interested me. During my studies I began to realize that our body was just that: a set of infinite puzzles. Want more strength? speed? power? Then we have to create a series of stimuli to get there. I discovered exercise selection, periodization, intensity - along with other variables - are pieces that can be manipulated to achieve my client's training goals. In my final year in college, I got certified in training. Since then, I have continually strived to be the best problem solver I can be. I've interned and learned from some of the best coaches in the industry. I've attended countless seminars, talks and workshops all with the goal of continually learning, growing and perfecting my craft. Currently, I implement my techniques by coaching athletes and clients in West Babylon, as well as online through my business Stoked Athletics. I also work with organizations like the LIU Post Men's Lacrosse team, and West Babylon High School's Girls track and Field team. Learn more here.
