Area of expertise

After a lifetime of group exercise training, recreational programming and fitness instruction; I have naturally progressed into the management and business development side of the health, fitness and recreational industry.

I have always enjoyed the challenge of working with non-athletic groups, and have nurtured many to realise a potential they never knew they possessed.   It is particularly important to me, that everyone has an opportunity to realise the benefits of exercise and movement in a safe environment.

I have been working in the fitness industry for over 20 years, and although my role here at Healthwise Fitness is mainly administrative, I love transforming minds and bodies! Helping people change their mindsets and habits long term, as well as helping people overcome injuries is what keeps me in this industry! I love it! Aiming to instruct perfect execution of movement is key for me.

Here at Healthwise we want to create positive experiences every day. Whether it be the class you choose, or the program you are given, or the advice you receive—we want you to walk away feeling inspired and motivated.

Area of expertise

I would love to help you be the best ‘you’, regardless of whether you’ve never set foot inside a gym before, or you’ve been coming to the gym for years, I am here to help you with your fitness journey.

Having been through my own weight loss journey of more than 20kg, I know how it feels and what it takes to achieve what you thought was not possible, and you know what? It can be fun! We just need to find the type of exercise you enjoy.

Personally, I love a challenge and have completed a variety of events including Tough Mudder, Stadium Stomp, Eureka Climb, Mirabella Mountain, a variety of running races. Having a goal helps me to keep on track with my training.

No one stays motivated all the time and that is where good habits and an empathetic, dedicated trainer come in. If you want it, I will give you a call if you haven’t been into the gym when you said you would! I can help keep you accountable but you have to want it first.

“I am me, and I want to be the best me that I can be.”

Area of expertise

I am a Strength and Conditioning Coach. My style of training specifically focuses on mastering body weight exercises, utilising a variety of training modes to develop strength. Challenging the body this way places greater demands on co-ordination, proprioception, balance and flexibility. I like to help people to reach their goals by showing them the fun side to exercise, and being creative with their programs and my classes. I believe exercise doesn’t have to be a chore and I like the challenge of helping you to enjoy it and feel great about yourself!
