My own health and fitness journey started way back during my childhood years. Having a father who was a professional wrestler, back in the 90’s,exposed me from a young age to what training & staying fit actually means.
At the age of 5, I was doing Brazilian Jui Jitsu & started playing Netball. This carried onto my teenage years. When I was 16 I joined a local gym with a friend to help get fit for netball. I remember being in there and watching the personal trainers working with clients or running classes and I thought to myself “Man, these guys have the best job EVER, I want that.” They just looked so happy and at that moment, I knew this was what I was going to pursue!
Since then I have never looked back!
I completed my Certificate 3 & 4 in Fitness in 2010 and have been in the industry ever since. I started working at Fernwood Women’s Health Club as soon as I finished studying. Started my role as a Member Motivator then moved onto 1on1 Personal Training & Small Group Training classes for the next 5 years.
During that time I started to explore different types of training for myself, I was doing your standard bodybuilding split with a focus on the 3 powerlifting movements. And boring cardio. I got bored. Really bored. Then a friend of mine introduced me to my first CrossFit workout & it changed my life.
I joined up to my local CrossFit gym & noticed the changed in my mobility, strength & fitness straight away! Also found a new challenge – Olympic Weightlifting. This has (still does) challenges me more than anything else!
I was in love. Crossfit become my life. I started to casually help out with the coaching at my box, then eventually left Fernwood to become a full – time Cross-Fit coach.
I have dedicated many hours to coaching classes, doing courses, mentoring clients, 1on1 sessions, nutrition consults, running workshops. You name it, I have done it!
This is my whole life. My passion. What drives me & motivates me.
My focus now is on inspiring others to find there passion with health & fitness. I still do all of the above and will continue to do so until the day I die.
