After having a knee reconstruction at the age of 17 (after a basketball injury!) I was forced to spend 6 months in a gym for rehabilitation. 17 years later and I still haven’t left the gym!

 

I exercise because I love feeling strong! I love how empowered I feel after a great session! And I love that all those millions of thoughts swimming around my mind are silenced when I’m working out!   

 

Changing careers from Chartered Accountant to Personal Trainer (and business owner) has been one of the most rewarding things I have ever done! The member’s at FitMiss are so welcoming, encouraging and fun! I am so lucky to be a part of this Club and love watching all of our member’s work towards being the best version of themselves!

After studying health and PE in high school and learning the basics of nutrition and exercise I developed a love for trying to create the best version of myself with a holistic approach to health and I strive to help other people do the same! 

With this baseline knowledge and my love for food I decided to study a bachelor of food and nutrition sciences and graduated in 2019 at Deakin University with distinction.

The culture at FitMiss is nothing like I've ever seen before! It truly is a place where women support women no matter what the goal is. There's something really special about being part of something so unique and I feel very lucky that I get to call FitMiss my workplace. 

A little more about me:

* Fav food - porridge ( I could literally eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner and have done so on one or two occasions)

* Mad bombers supporter and love watching the footy

* In my spare time I love seeing my friends and family or can easily spend the day watching tv and eating plenty of snacks 

* Love training upper body with shoulders being my favourite body part to train

Sport, Exercise and discovering the potential of the human body has been something that sparked my curiosity from an early age. Growing up as a competitive athlete I first stepped foot in a gym at just 10 years old. I was fortunate enough to train with some of the best strength and conditioning coaches. My knowledge and passion has been a cumulative journey of personal, theoretical and practical coaching experience.

 I have dipped my foot into many avenues of the health and fitness world starting in high performance for both Tennis and Athletics, then continuing on into study a degree in Exercise and sport science whilst dabbling into the world of body building and heavy strength training. Currently my training revolves around dance, mobility and acrobatics. I love the idea of exploring bodyweight strength and flexibility as I find this is an area that takes most intrinsic motivation and patience to see the fruits of your labour.

A little more about me:

My Fav food: all of them :') both savoury and sweet

Fav sport to play: Table Tennis is always a good laugh

Spare time: I'll be dancing with my friends or making things I love to sew/crochet, I also love to travel and meet new people

Are you ready to make a positive change?
