MEET HARRIET & LIZZIE

Hi! We are Harriet and Lizzie. We are passionate about empowering female athletes and helping them reach their potential. and we have been professional athletes since we were teenagers. We absolutely love being professional athletes, but it’s not always as glamorous as it may seem. We have consistently had moments when we have lacked self belief, felt like giving up, struggled with what we looked like, haven't fuelled ourselves correctly and felt insecure and lost when it comes to our menstrual cycles. We have seen our friends and teammates go through similar struggles. We know other athletes are eager to learn more about these experiences. If you have struggled with any of these things, you are not alone. With our degrees in Exercise Science, Science & Physiology, we have created workshops to normalise and educate female athletes on common obstacles we may face.

HEY, I'M LIZZIE

Lizzie Welborn was one of the youngest competitors to ever qualify for the professional Ironwoman series, at just 16 years old. Now Lizzie is 25 and has been competing professionally for 9 years. Lizzie has placed in the top 3 of the Nutrigrain Ironwoman Series and Summer of Surf series on multiple occasions, been part of many Australian teams and is known as one of the best board paddlers in the country alongside Harriet. Lizzie has also competed in the gruelling 52km Molokai 2 Oahu World Paddleboard Championships in Hawaii, where she placed 2nd to Harriet 3 years in a row. 

​Lizzie was one of the most accomplished youth athletes surf sports has ever seen. Transitioning to being an open competitor and matching it with the more experienced women was a challenge. Through this period, Lizzie has learnt to understand the burden of expectation, manage insecurities about body image and the importance of fuelling correctly. Lizzie looks forward to teaching the next generation how they can manage this and enjoy sport more.
