"Excellent Strength and Conditioning program that suits my profession as a Firefighter. It challenged me, but also continually encouraged me to work to completion."
"I started your program six weeks before my annual Bomb Tech re-qualification. Your workouts are legit and I found a renewed enthusiasm to go to the gym! Not only did I get some solid increases in my 1RM's but I turned up in good shape and knocked over the physical testing easily."

"A mate and I recently finished the first program and we both experienced some serious gains on our Squat, Deadlift & Benchpress. Not only this, but the circuits and conditioning kicked us into serious shape! It was great to experience a tactical athlete style program and along with your customer support, you have secured us as customers for life!"

Skilled Athlete started from humble beginnings. As a brand we started with an idea and a goal, we didn't have much capital so we started with two t-shirts and a single Strength & Conditioning e-book. We sold these through a buy button on our Facebook page which cost us $9 a month, we didn’t even have a website or Instagram page at this stage. Our growth might have started slow, but it has been organic. We’ve grown because you, our support, believe in us and continue to support us.
So where did the idea come from?
