I began my own fitness journey in 2002. After the birth of my 2nd child I found myself 25kgs overweight. After a lot of hard work with my Personal Trainer, I was a new woman! This inspired me to become a Personal Trainer to help others reach their Health and Fitness goals.

I am keenly
interested in assisting people to keep their bodies stronger, fitter and more
stable so they can confidently go about achieving what they want in life whilst
at the same time minimising those disease risks so often associated with
‘getting older’. Training muscles to
work together helps to promote strong, fluid movements that are relevant to
daily activity. This means training ‘movement’ rather than isolated muscles and
usually asking the cardiovascular system to do ‘a little bit more than usual’ –
but within each individual’s ability.
Balance and agility training also help in avoiding falls and making
quick decisions and movements that keep us safe and upright. “It’s never too late to make a change”

Being fit and healthy gives more than it takes. My philosophy is simple, have fun, learn and improve. As a community we are constantly pushing the boundaries of what our bodies are capable of, whether it’s on the sporting field or at the office we are always looking for an edge.
A well balanced fitness program, specific to the individual, acknowledges this and has the capability to act preventatively against injury and illness while improving overall quality of life.

There is no quick fix, no magic pill or potion that can achieve the results of a healthy lifestyle. Exercise empowers you physically and mentally, it also empowers you to deal with obstacles you encounter in life. Fitness is personal and success comes from finding the right program that fits your lifestyle and desires.
