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

I was always the kid that loved PE at school it was my favourite subject along with human biology in high school. I played numerous sports growing up from netball, gymnastic and athletics. This carried into my adult life from mixed netball to figure competing in body building comps which took me to worlds in Poland and most recently being a competitive weightlifter for the last 6 years at a national level. 

 

As I dived into studies over the years my passion for health and fitness has exploded exponentially, however I have always come at it with the notion of having balance in all aspects and doing the things you love when it comes to exercise. We only get one life so have fun whilst being excited to see what potential your amazing body is actually capable of! Move through all stages of life as often as you can , in as many ways as you can!

I started going to the gym back in Paris in 2014 just before coming to Australia. I wanted to look my best. As a result I lost a lot of weight, but coming to a new country, different food and life style, I put on a lot of weight. In 2016 I decided to make sustainable changes to my lifestyle and became healthier. While I lost a lot of weight, I also became strong and feel much more confident.

I became a Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor because I love training women, training them to become the better versions of themselves, and feeling good in their bodies. I am passionate about improving self esteem and confidence in women. 

Favourite Food: Cheese and bread ( YES I am French )

Favourite exercise: Sumo Deadlift, Chest press

Spare time: Exploring restaurants in Melbourne, going camping and hiking

I was driven to start a career in the fitness industry after using fitness to overcome depression. Getting into fitness taught me not only that I should care for myself but that I’m worth caring for myself. I believe physical fitness is the foundation for everything and exercise isn’t just about doing the hardest workout possible, it’s about setting yourself up to feel as good as possible for life.

Here at FitMiss we have a unique safe environment, a strong community with friendships that extend beyond the gym. It is truly a space where anyone can open up about anything they're struggling with and find open hearts, compassion and support.

 

I’ve experienced many areas of the fitness industry from bodybuilding to older adults training and movement therapy. All areas have helped me understand how to adapt exercise to each person’s unique situation. If you have sore knees we don’t stop moving which will ultimately limit your movement through life, we figure out how to help you move with minimal or zero pain. Exercise is meant to fit you, not you having to meet a standard that doesn’t fit you.

A little more about me:

My Fave food: How can I choose!? Potatoes in any form is top tier.

In my spare time I love to: I love eating fun food home cooked or at restaurants, looking for interesting experiences around Melbourne
