I was first nicknamed “The Machine” in high school when I would run and win cross country races and track and field races from sprint to long distances. I became a 2 x All-American in the 10,000 meters, while in high school at Junior Nationals and I medaled at National Championships in events from 1,500m -10,000 meter runs and 5k cross country. The nickname of “The Machine” continues as I have over 30 world records in strength, speed, and endurance, and I am a professional fitness trainer.
I graduated from University of Florida where I was a letter winner in Track and Cross Country. I have B.S. degrees in Biology and Communication. I was then in a Doctorate of Physical Therapy program to expand my specialty of aquatic therapy. My clients also refer to me as “The Machine” as I train with each and every one of them to motivate them. When I am not training people, I am training myself in world record setting or training for the 15 sports I compete in on an elite level. I am really W-I-L-D about exercise and physical fitness!!!
I must warn you though – I do have an alter ego and I get the urges at times to get off the athletic field and get ON STAGE! I have been an entertainer for a variety of acts for years! I am most known for my “One Woman Shows” where I combine “character comedy” with strength feats! I perform Live and I have a line of shows here. Here’s a preview of my 7 character comedy show.
My creative energies carry over into other areas as well. I am an author, illustrator, and poet. I published my first book on marine biology and my second book on physical fitness is found here. You can learn more about me as the athlete here and as the fitness professional here.
Now, let’s crank the engine and see what a human performance machine can do…Below are my world records in over 20 categories of exercises (the exercise world records are listed alphabetically). I keep re-setting my own records and I garner new ones.
* NOTE: Starting in 2012, I am setting world records exclusively with RecordSetter.com, the world’s fastest growing world record book where I also compete with men for overall world records. I set over 50 world records with The Book of Alternative Records from 2008 -2011 – those records are listed below. CLICK HERE for Alicia’s RecordSetter World Records.
VERY IMPORTANT: Below are my 60 entries in the Book of Alternative Records from 2008-2011. I will continue these categories now at RecordSetter, so to stay up with the latest records visit me at www.recordsetter.com/user/aliciaweber
