Coach Mel, Owner & Head coach of Reaper Strength Cartel since 2016, specialises in strength & conditioning, with a particular focus on strongman, powerlifting, injury prevention, management & rehabilitation and athlete management.
Mel's strength journey started in 2015, training in strongman and powerlifting. As an athlete himself, he have competed in Arnold Strongman, placing 5th out of 30 competitors & competed in a GPC sanctioned Comp securing an invitation to Pro Raw Powerlifting 2020. Some of his best lifts to date are:
*230kg Atlas Stone (an unofficial Australian record)
*165kg Log Press
*210kg Bench Press.
Since the inception of Reaper Strength Cartel, Mel has had 28 lifters compete on a regional, national & international stage. Out of that 28, only 2 missed out on a podium finish. This is a team that prides themselves on being supportive and respectful of their team and other competitors they come up against.
The Reapers call Steel & Stone Gym their home, as they both share the same set of values & qualities and both set our sights high to achieve what most would say is unachievable.
