I come from a very sporty family, started weight lifting with focus when I was 21 and as a student I gave up drinking and ate clean. All I wanted was to switch paths and become a personal trainer but was under pressure to finish my degree. Then, gap year, marriage and 2 kids happened. In between it all I landed my dream (corporate) job at the age of 28, working 15-18hr days, I travelled a lot, wined and dined and entertained constantly. Before I knew it 13kg had crept on to my relatively small frame - that's 20% more of me! I was tired, often ill, extremely moody and irritable, anxious and just generally in a bad state of health. After a very stark wake-up call and some gentle nudging from my family I signed up with a personal trainer and then  

I started my career in sales and marketing in the IT industry and very quickly realised how unhappy I was. My training and sports however is what kept me going. Exercise has always played such a strong role in my life - rugby, cricket, gym  motorcross, racing bikes - and I realised that it was such a crucial part of who I was. I had a few very influential people in my life help me realise that this was my true passion. To add to this I also had a natural interest in the human anatomy and nutrition. So I decided to make a change.


I now love what I do - I love being a personal trainer and helping others achieve amazing fitness and physique results. I want to share with others the feeling I get from training, the euphoria after a great workout and the positive roll-on effect it has through all aspects of my life. It is my passion to help others feel great about their bodies and their self image, to feel fit and strong  and just live healthier lifestyles.

 entered a transformation challenge run by one of the big supplement brands. I put my head down, lost 9kg, put on some muscle, completely changed my body composition and ultimately won the challenge. I've competed in multiple disciplines, including Obstacle Course Racing, stage show (bikini division), triathlon, long distance cycling, swimming and mid-long distance road/trail running events - all of which have taught me valuable lessons about endurance, perseverance, the body's ability to keep going long after you feel like quitting, and most importantly how fitness and health is a lifestyle, not a finish-line. I studied Exercise Science and Nutrition through HFPA and left my corporate career behind to pursue a 14-year-long dormant passion - helping others achieve their sport, health and fitness goals.
