Introducing Bearhug Bearbassador, Kate Strong. Kate embodies everything about Bearhug, she challenges herself and explores growth outside of her comfort zone while understanding the limitless benefits of community.
World Champion Triathlete, Engineer, Plant-based Adventurer, Coach and Consultant, Entrepreneur, Reiki Master, Philanthropist and three-time World Record Holder. Judge Kate not by her titles and accolades but on the action she takes today.
Kate Strong leads by example in attaining peak performance whether that’s climbing Mont Blanc, developing a globally-reaching sustainable business or founding a charity. She is a widely sought after coach, enabling individuals and teams to redefine what’s possible and introduce flow into their daily way of being.
Kate has lived and travelled all over the globe, earning a double Masters in Engineering while living in France and Italy, she’s set up micro businesses in indigenous communities in Guatemala, Cambodia and Vietnam as well as teaching diving in Spain & Mexico and founding a hospitality business in Australia. It was during her time in Australia that she discovered triathlon while recovering from a toxic relationship. Within 14 months of taking up the sport, she was crowned age-group World Champion and later went on the break three cycling world records.
Yet, she has also faced her fair share of difficulties from being trapped in a toxic relationship to working herself out of a million-dollar debt left by her ex. These challenges don’t define her and she uses these darker days to fuel her to always be the best version of herself.
In the coming years, Kate has a major challenge of cycling 3,000 miles around the coast of UK raising awareness around the importance to protect our global health and also planting 3,000 trees as she cycles.
However, Kate upcoming challenge is the Tour De Wales in July 2022.
Cycling 600 plus miles around the circumference of Wales, but the major twist is it’s on a bamboo bike that Kate has made herself! Bearhug will be joining Kate on her last leg and at the celebratory party.
