My interest in health and fitness came from my sporting background, which has given me the desire to work in an industry where you can help people change their lifestyle and fitness for the better. I am thrilled every day I get to help clients achieve their personal goals.

Personal Trainer

My passion for fitness started when I was very young growing up in Cronulla, getting involved in many sports and becoming a lifeguard. From early on I knew I wanted to pursue a career in the fitness industry. I get great satisfaction in helping others to achieve their fitness goals and develop a love for fitness, as much as I do. I am motivated to work with my clients in developing tailored programs to fit in with their everyday demands, making sure they are enjoying their program and feeling good about themselves whilst achieving their goals.

Personal Trainer/Group Training Instructor

Similar to many Aussie kids, my childhood was sport, sport, sport. Encouraged at a young age to pursue my dreams, I learnt fast that getting there would require a lot of hard work.

Around the same time, my father, who was severely overweight, decided a lifestyle change was much needed and thus his health and fitness journey begun.

Seeing him turn his life around and losing well over 40kgs, along with pushing myself in order to achieve my sport and fitness goals, I grew a strong passion for health and fitness and realised the impact I could have on other people and their lifestyle.

From that point on, it became my desire to learn, grow, and improve my knowledge, both to improve my own self, but also to share with as many people as I can reach in order to help better themselves.

Personal Trainer/Group Training Instructor

I developed a passion for health and fitness from a young age, with the majority of my childhood revolving around sport and physical activity. Growing up I was always drawn to pursuing a career within the health and fitness industry.

My passion for sport branched out into all things health and fitness, the more I learnt and the more I experienced the benefits that come with living a healthy lifestyle, the more that passion grew. I followed my passion for health and fitness completing my studies in exercise science.

Upon completing my studies I decided to begin working as a personal trainer. My mindset quickly shifted from “just a job” to a career as I found a sense of fulfilment sharing my passion for health and fitness with others to help them live a better, healthier lifestyle.

The rest is history as I continued to learn, grow and develop as a trainer and have found it incredibly rewarding seeing the positive impact health and fitness has on others.

I hope to inspire those around me to embrace a happier, healthier life through health and fitness.

Personal Trainer

Becoming a personal trainer came from my love of health and fitness, and helping people reach their goals. Growing up I played a lot of sports and my selfish desire to be a better athlete lead me to study exercise and sports science with a special interest in strength and conditioning.

I started training youth athletes and loved seeing how my work with them would help them excel in their sports and become stronger and more confident. I soon expanded to train clients of all ages, fitness levels and goals.

I love helping them smash their goals and live happier and healthier lives. I’m passionate about all things health and fitness. I believe the gym should be a place people look forward to coming to and feel better when they walk out then when they walked in.
