Coach Stef Sifandos

Stef has a deep interest in all that challenges him, not only physically but also psychologically and spiritually. For many years as a constant discovery of self, Stef has purposely placed himself in physically compromising situations in order to strengthen and test himself, his capabilities and potential. Stef has developed a broad understanding of what it truly means to be fit in real terms. Stef is heavily involved in Boxing, Brazilian Ju Jitsu, short and long distance triathlon, running, cycling, intensified strength and power training.

Stef also has a strong interest and passion for extreme outdoor sports such as rock climbing, hiking, mountain climbing, trekking, white water rafting, mountain bike riding and nature and the elements itself, and has spent time trekking in the Amazon, Peru, Chile, Costa Rica, Thailand, Eastern Europe, Western Europe and has cycled solo around Italy.

Knowing oneself and their capabilities is paramount to who Stef is. He believes it is a constant search via at times painful journey that truly has no end, due to the ever-changing nature of self. Stef realizes that the blood, sweat and tears expelled in the gym can only help prepare one for the reality of life and its obstacles, but that real training is done within.

Stef placed 3rd in the 2010 WA, SA & NT CrossFit Games Sectional Qualifiers.

“Stef is a technician when it comes to physical movement and his work capacity is unparalleled. His training experiences around the world have clearly made him an outstanding coach who knows how to get the most out of his athletes!”
