My fitness journey began after I had my kids and I was walking around with an extra 25 kilos on my 5 foot frame. Not only did my outward appearance upset me as I didn’t recognise the person I saw in the mirror, everything hurt. My knees and back were so fatigued from daily life and my mental health was taking a beating. .
Something had to change!
I started working out with a single kettlebell in my bedroom because honestly, I didn’t feel worthy of going to a gym. My self esteem wouldn’t have handled a sideways glance. Over the next 6 months of dedicated exercise and thoughtful eating I re-shaped my body and my mind. I got my confidence back and joined a gym. It was then that I realised that no-one else actually gives a toss what you’re doing, they’re more concerned with themselves and their program/physique/form. However this is my story and that’s how it started.
I fell in love with my post kids body and how it could move, how strong it was and how healthy it had become. I fell in love with powerlifting and Olympic lifting. From the kid at school who hated sports to someone who craves strength sports. For me it’s not so much the aesthetic but how my body performs. .
My mission is to make fitness as approachable as possible for everyone. For you to feel welcome to train no matter your goals. We want to help you have the outcome you had only dreamed of.
My specialty is sharing my education and experience on how to use a barbell to develop strong, athletic and balanced physiques that are more resistant to injury to promote long term health advancement and continual progress in the gym.
I’ve had the privilege to apply this knowledge in the field over the last 2 years to provide quality of life enhancement and performance increases in powerlifting, as well as individual and field-based sports for local athletes in a private setting.
