Stefi Cohen, World Record Female Powerlifter

Episode 571

In this episode we had the pleasure to sit down with 25x World Record Holding Powerlifter and Co-Owner of Hybrid Performance Method, Dr. Stefanie Cohen. She runs her own podcast called Hybrid Unlimited, coaches world class athletes, and has trained for multiple sports (weightlifting, powerlifting, boxing, professional soccer, etc.) – all while running a highly successful business! There is a lot to discuss with Stefi and today we dive right in.
