Yeah She Lifts – Euphemia Senar

Euphemia Senar, or Phem for short, is lovingly known as “Phemalicious” in CrossFit Raeda, where she trains. Coming from a body building background she has turned more to Weightlifting and CrossFit performance this year, and has made huge progress with her strength.

Having recently qualified as a Level 1 CrossFit coach, she is now leading some sessions at Raeda, and has also completed the Greenwood Weightlifting course.

As well as taking on qualifications to become a CrossFit and Weightlifting coach, Euphemia has also just recently finished her University studies towards becoming a science teacher. All of this, and she somehow also finds the time to be a loving mum to her children, supporting them at football matches and more, and wife to husband, Tim.
