Sally has been instructing for 6 years and has a wealth of knowledge and fitness industry experience.  Having recently joined the ERC crew as a regular RPM instructor, Sally is just one of those genuinely lovely people.   Sally’s personality perfectly suits the quiet calm but strong nature of Bodybalance.  But when she saddles up for RPM, Sally morphs into this inspiring, motivating cycling coach to help get you through the flats, hills and speed tracks.       Read more about Sally…


Instructor:  Jaime Hughes

Position:  Group Fitness Instructor

Jaime’s love of group fitness shines when she puts on the microphone and leads her tribe through a great GRIT workout.  With her passion for fitness, amazing strength and fantastic technique it seemed like a natural progression from participant to instructor for Jaime.  Despite being fairly new to instructing, Jaime has hit the ground running (and squatting and jumping).  If it’s not at the front of a GRIT class, you might have Jaime putting you through your paces in Metafit or Bodystep.       Read more about Jaime…


Instructor:  Andrew Haywood

Position:  Group Fitness Instructor

Andrew joined ERC as a member back in 2008 and was a regular participant of Group Fitness classes.  When our RPM room was constructed in 2013, we approached Andrew to see if he would be interested in doing the training to become an RPM instructor.  Lucky for us, Andrew jumped at the chance and he’s never looked back.   With his natural ability to connect with people, Andrew has been instrumental in developing the RPM program here at ERC.  His classes are always challenging but they’re fun and light-hearted at the same time – keep an ear out for his RPM Choir belting out tunes during the Monday and Wednesday night classes.   Read more about Andrew…


Instructor:  Shenae Bearman
Position:  Group Fitness Instructor

When she’s not working her day job as a Physiotherapist, Shenae is putting her tribe through their paces in RPM and Bodypump.   Shenae is another participant turned instructor who has worked in both regional and metro fitness facilities during the past 4 years.  As our resident early-bird RPM instructor, Shenae will get your day off to an awesome start and with her Physio background, you can be sure you’ll develop great technique in all of her sessions.  Read more about Shenae…

 

Instructor:  Kellyann Davis  (aka Killerann)
Position:  Group Fitness Instructor

Kellyann is one of our longest serving Group Fitness Instructors having been with us since 2008 in the capacity of Group Fitness Instructor and also Gym Supervisor.    Kel is well known and respected for her no-nonsense, get-in-and-get-the-job-done approach to classes.    Unlike the pre-choreographed Les Mills programs, Kellyann develops her own class structure that incorporates a lot of functional movements as well as strength and cardio components.  The unique thing about Kellyann’s classes is you never know from one week to the next what you are going to be doing, and this is one of the reasons her sessions are so popular with our members.  Read more about Kellyann…


Instructor:  Jackie Kampen
Position:  Group Fitness Instructor

Jackie’s first introduction to the world of Group Fitness instruction was with Bodycombat in 2013.  Since then, she has gone on to complete her Bodycombat and Bodypump Advanced Instructor Module 1 and more recently, her RPM initial instructor training.  As well as being physically strong, Jackie’s strength is also in her people skills – especially her ability to relate to and interact with her participants.  She’s been in their shoes and she knows what it’s like.  Bodypump is always a great starter program for newcomers to Group Fitness and Jackie will certainly make you feel comfortable and get you off to a great start on your fitness journey.                     Read more about Jackie…
