I have a massive love for all things health and fitness. I began training and eating healthy in my early 20s and immediately noticed the positive effects it had on my body and my own health. When I became pregnant for the first time, I realised that I was not sure on how to train while pregnant. From that I then wanted to learn and help train other females who were pregnant or post partum. My passion is helping others discover theirs.

“You might not be able to control the circumstances, but you can control how you how you respond to them”.

I and very passionate about strength and technique and allowing clients to be exposed to progressive and regressive moves. This understanding allows range within the clientele we see and where they are on their fitness journey.

I do have a superpower. My superpower is seeing people’s potential and allowing them their time to shine!

I am a big advocate for strength training and taking time to learn technique for best execution. Furthermore, I really enjoy breaking the misconceptions of females training to be strong and not having to spend endless hours on cardio machines. This comes back to educating clients about creating a purpose for their training and allowing them to take the time to sit down and understand how and why goal setting is so important.
