B S Sc Pyschology, Cert 3 & 4 in Fitness, Lv 1 Yoga Instructor, Cert in Sports Nutrition
I‘ve trained countless mums over the years, but since having had 2 boys of my own, my passion for helping women heal, both physically and emotionally, after the birth of a child, became something I knew would become a lifelong journey.
My passion for fitness began when I was 5 when I started Little Athletics, and never went away. I studied Psychology at University, stemming from my desire to help people live a happier, more fulfilling life. I never worked as a psychologist, but later realised I could join my 2 passions and become a Personal Trainer. I’ve now been in the industry for over 10 years and feel so lucky. After a few years I realised it’s not just getting our heart rate up, but also slowing it down, that people need help with, so I added to my training and became a Yoga Instructor.
I’ve been a dancer all my life. I started when I was 2 years old and was hooked! I had a very successful professional performing career followed by an amazing career teaching people of all ages and abilities to dance. I love to dance and to teach others to dance, working on their technique of course, but predominantly, sharing and passing on my love and passion for the arts.
Obviously in order to have a successful career in the performance industry, there is also a focus on maintaining a fit, strong and healthy body. As a dancer, your body is your tool and you have to condition, maintain and look after it so I have always been a regular gym goer and strong advocate for healthy living.
So, fast forward and I’m now in my 40’s and have two young children. I still love dance and I continue to teach but I wanted to add another string to my bow and be able to help others on their journey to a fitter, stronger, healthier lifestyle. I hold my Certificate III and Certificate IV in Fitness and am a Barre Attack Certified Trainer.
As a mum, we all know the juggle is real and constant! We wouldn’t change it for the world but it can also feel draining and overwhelming. We constantly put the needs of others first and our own personal health, physical and mental, suffers. Through my own experience, I know how intertwined the relationship is between physical and mental health and I want to help others who are struggling to empower themselves; to make themselves healthier, fitter, stronger, happier and feel like they can take on the world.
