We all have times in our lives that change us. Watershed moments that force us into thinking differently. Kylie Cox had one of these very moments a few years ago while training for an Ironman World 70.3 Age Group Championship. Despite continuing to perform in training, a number a life stressors coincided with a heavy training load. She became concerned about how her health might impact her menstrual cycle and sought help.

Now, after exercising her own curiosity and earning a Master’s degree focusing on energetic injuries, Kylie is passionate about helping young athletes and their families understand what it really means to stay healthy.

Kylie also works a the physiotherapist for Netball New Zealand’s secondary school programme and recently developed the first national resource on female athletic health for NetballSmart.
