Why did you get into fitness?

It just sort of happened but I wouldn’t change it for anything else. I get to live a healthy and active lifestyle and I get to help others do the same. It's pretty neat!

 

What motivates you to get out of bed in the morning?

My family is my biggest motivator- mainly because they take it in turns to wake me up before my alarm each day, so I guess you could say that they literally get me out of bed in the morning!

 

What is your favourite thing about Nelson Bay?

I have met so many great people here; I love the Nelson Bay community, as everyone is so friendly, accepting and laid back. It’s also such a beautiful part of the world! Why would you want to work and train anywhere else?

 

What is your favourite class to teach?

​ My favourite style of class has got to be a high impact aerobic workout. Everyone gets a workout no matter their fitness level, including me.

"My favourite way to take care of my body is ___"

By regularly doing Body Balance for its restorative stretching and strengthening moves. Despite appearances, I am inherently lazy but I have learned that the easiest way to get through life is to be as fit and as healthy as you can be, which means regular exercise and eating good food.

What are your qualifications?

+ Cert III & IV Fitness

+ Diploma in Business Administration

+ Pre-Post Natal Corrective Exercise Specialist

Why did you get into fitness?

My mum was my main motivator to get into fitness, she ran her own small gym and encouraged me to get qualified and once I did I found what I loved! It was the feeling I got from helping others to reach their goals and stay motivated that kept me in, and the bonus is I am keeping on top of my own training at the same time!

 

What motivates you to get out of bed in the morning?

Well firstly my children, I have two daughters and they keep me very busy. But also knowing how much my job helps others both physically and mentally is definitely worth getting out of my warm cosy bed on a freezing day.

 

What is your favourite thing about Nelson Bay?

I love everything that is around this area. It's beautiful; the bush walks; the amazing beaches; and the ice cream shops! The people I have met through working in Nelson Bay have been my reason for wanting to take this next step and start Our Gym. They are so supportive, friendly and fun.

 

What is your favourite class to teach?

It’s hard to pick a favourite class. I love BodyCombat and its fast intense training. BodyBalance is so good to look after my body with its stretches while still keeping my body strong. And all of my seniors classes are just so much fun, keeping me and them active with lots of laughs. I love them all!

Fill in the blank:

"My favourite way to take care of my body is ___"

Treating myself to a good massage and a tasty meal. Training and eating right are very important for a healthy body, but we’re not perfect and we shouldn’t expect to be. I am not a serious person So when I stuff up I just remember that tomorrow is a new day, life is about learning, enjoying life and becoming your best you. Not picking yourself to pieces.
