Our Story


elitewellbeing was established in 2012 by Krystine and Craig Mottram.

After being partners for several years they married in 2011. This union cemented their vision for elitewellbeing. Together Krystine and Craig have accumulated an array of sporting, academic and personal experiences that they believe equips them to guide, support and help others in their quest for fulfillment and success.

Craig is a four time Olympian, World Championship and Commonwealth Games medalist and holds several, local, state national and international records in running. Through his wealth of experiences, both challenging and rewarding, Craig emphasises the importance of adopting a multi-faceted approach to professional and personal achievement and success.

The basis of Krystine’s expertise draws on 10 years of academic studies in psychology and health science. The main focus of her PhD studies was on the wellbeing and psychology of elite athletes. As a wellbeing advocate, Krystine knows that personal wellbeing is paramount to success and that these lessons can be utilised by anyone in the pursuit of optimal wellbeing.  

“We have successfully navigated our way through many situations, together and independently and believe our experiences, skills and resources serve us well to provide support and insight to others. Our vision is to educate, empower and encourage anyone on their journey towards personal fulfillment.”

We look forward to working with you to address your wellbeing needs, to provide support and to maintain elitewellbeing in your lives.

Our Mission

The elitewellbeing programs aim to educate, empower and encourage participants to be well and be elite. Drawing on relevant research from the fields of psychology, sports science and health science, together with our own personal experiences our programs are tailored to meet the needs of the group or individual. We understand the consistent level of determination, effort, stress and pressure often experienced in ones pursuit of personal fulfillment and success. We also know how isolating and lonely the path can be and we genuinely know that we can be of support to you.

We have paid particular attention to identifying some of the groups of people that have known lower wellbeing including: athletes, new parents, students, carers and people experiencing changes. We pride ourselves on having the passion and ability to work across large groups/teams and individuals. In recent times we have predominately worked within the corporate sector, schools, universities, elite athletes, sports and clubs. We are constantly evolving our existing programs and creating new programs. Each program can be adapted for you and the needs of your organization on an individual basis, group work, seminars or via Skype.

Testimonials


I have worked with Craig over the last four AFL seasons, engaging in his knowledge, expertise and command of specific conditioning techniques of elite Australian Rules Footballers. Craig offers a professional coaching service whereby he can impart his intimate knowledge of running, whilst working with the athlete(s) during the session. The feedback received from numerous players Craig has engaged with, is always that he provides an educational focus and belief in terms of the additional level he’s able to extract from them within a safe injury free working capacity. Craig understands the requirements of elite sport, adjusting his sessions accordingly to management plans and loading, whilst exposing the player to new levels of development and knowledge in relation to their running. This in turn inspires them to develop their capacity even further. Craig’s skill in motivating athletes to be better is of the highest class and I strongly commend his invaluable knowledge in this process.

Krystine’s ongoing support throughout my pregnancy and the first six months of being a new mother to my son Hugo has been incredibly invaluable. She helped me make the big adjustment into motherhood so much easier to cope with. Krystine’s wealth of knowledge and first-hand experience with coping with pregnancy and raising a first child is extremely impressive and she always seems to have a suggestion, solution or new strategy to try with every problem I have encountered along the way. I cannot express how grateful I am to her, not only to have a great friend to share the experience with, but also a mentor and ‘maternal’ counsellor to support me through this life-changing journey.
