I started Muay Thai/Kickboxing later in life wanting to shed baby weight and fell in love with the feeling of being fit, strong and healthy. I often utilize boxing and kicking in my programming for clients, as well as offering one-on-one striking sessions.
I also have a huge interest in functional strength and loaded movement training, with Kettlebells and ViPR being my favourites. I love the ever-evolving nature of the fitness industry and enjoy challenging my clients with new ideas and techniques to get them moving and feeling great.
My journey as a fitness instructor has seen many varied experiences. I have been young, fit and carefree, and I have been a busy working mum that’s had weight to lose. This is where my passion for helping people make lifestyle changes has come from.
I have learnt that fitness is about so much more than diet and the gym. It’s also about wellness, with mental, physical and nutritional health all being factors in quality of life. I like to motivate people into realizing their true potential. When we become a bad ass in the gym, we then go on to kick major goals in life.
I love to do a mixture of functional and hypertrophy style training. Combining movements that seem a little unconventional, but it works. I absolutely love trying new things out and gaining more knowledge from it.
I believe that everyone has a right and capabilities to achieving whatever they put their minds to. The biggest and most rewarding part for me is seeing everyone on their own fitness journey.
I train myself in a way that excites me and is related to my sports. I play football & soccer, so my programs are sport specific with a mix of weights and plyometric exercises.
I believe that if things work for you then let’s do that. What motivates me is when the clients see progress for themselves and their confidence grows.
My passion for sport and fitness began young, as we were always encouraged to play sport. My dad also introduced me to resistance training and I’ve been doing it ever since. After becoming a mother to 2 busy boys, I understand the need for mums to put aside some time for themselves.
As a trainer I enjoy watching all my clients reach their goals by “just getting the hard work done” and I train with a strong emphasis on making sure nutrition is on point.
I believe that exercise is medicine for both the mind and body, and should be an essential part of everyday life.
As a trainer, it is my goal to encourage everybody to engage in resistance training for maintaining strength, coordination, muscle mass and bone density. I have been researching movement restoration programs, for the correction of dysfunctional movements, which will potentially enable my clients to perform exercises with extended ranges of motion minus the pain.
I have a hypertrophy based training style with high intensity and frequency. What can be expected from my sessions? Nothing fancy, just movements and exercises proven to promote changes/gains. I am proficient in various training methods such as drop sets and super sets, each with my own personal variations.
I am experienced in training around injuries and can provide safe training programs and options for my injured clients.
My training has evolved over the years. As a teenager I practiced competitive powerlifting, but I now favour more functional training. I have studied the prescription of exercise for woman through all three trimesters of pregnancy and post pregnancy, and benefited by being fit and healthy through my own.
I love it when new members find their passion for exercise.
