EDUCATION & ATHLETES

At Elbows Akimbo we believe that education, experience and access to the latest peer-reviewed research all play a vital role in achieving the best bike fitting outcomes. Elbows Akimbo owner, Anthony Mezzini, has undertaken many educational programs through University studies in Exercise & Sports Science as well as world-renown bike fitting educators. Additionally, he has worked with some of Australia’s best athletes across road, time trial and triathlon disciplines.

Anthony’s expertise, knowledge and continuing education have earned him Level 3 Certification by the International Bike Fitting Institute (IBFI). Level 3 bike fitters are recognised by an independent panel of experts as the best educated and most experienced fitters.
