My name is Ashlee Rowe and I’m a 20-year-old elite level rower. At times my sport can be gruelling. It involves cold early mornings, blisters and pain. I have developed the ability to power nap at any chance I get.
I row for the Swan River Rowing Club on the Canning River in Perth. I’ve been rowing for 5 years and in that time I’ve had the opportunity to race for Western Australia in the Under 21 women’s team 6 times. I am very proud of having achieved 3 silver medals and 3 bronze medals for WA so far.
I also achieved two gold medals, one silver and one bronze at the Australian Rowing Championships in 2010 and 2012. This year I will be rowing for Western Australia in the Open Women’s eight for the 2013 Australian Rowing Championships.
Body Genius has created a new and exciting world for my training this season. With their unique approach to nutrition, training and recovery they have set new standards.
I was first referred to Body Genius by my fellow rowers to get some assistance with my chronic asthma which had been an ongoing issue affecting my rowing. I began seeing Stephen Hooper (BG Physiotherapist) and with his extensive knowledge in nutrition and exercise, he designed a nutritional plan specifically for me to combat my asthma, whilst also taking into consideration that I’m a hungry athlete!
A couple of months later I was feeling like a million bucks and achieving personal best times with no asthma challenges at all. During this time I was also selected for the Body Genius Scholarship Program for developing athletes; which gave me access to nutrition support, one-on-one strength and conditioning sessions and altitude training.
From overcoming my fear of box jumps, to lifting weights I never thought I could, The Body Genius Team has helped me to achieve outstanding results in the gym and in my rowing. Steve is an exceptional health professional and his diverse skills helped me to keep track of my sleep patterns, nutritional habits, supplementation, and my recovery. The guidance and support I received from the entire BG team was amazing!
I can highly recommend Steve Hooper and the entire Body Genius to anyone wanting to take their sporting performance, fitness goals or general health to the next level. The BG team is always going the extra mile to help you and practice what they preach. They’re not only experts in their fields but great people as well.*
