Well, I’m not your typical fitness coach. In my 20’s I was quite unfit, used to smoke a packet of cigarettes a day and could drink more than most men.
So, how did someone who wasn’t really into fitness start a fitness business?
Well, in my late 20’s I knew I needed to change. I was depressed and the constant drinking made it worse. So, like so many others out there I decided to embark on a 12-week program. I know sounds cliché but it was a pivotal moment for me. Initially it was just to lose a few kilos, but what I finished with was so much more.
Simply by finishing something I started, I started to believe in myself. I realised if I put my mind to something, anything was possible.
That was it, I was hooked.
Exercise and eating well become my ‘happy pill’ and from this Get Active Online was born.
For the last 15 years I’ve helped so many people not just lose weight but more importantly overhaul their lives and help them feel confident about themselves again.
I must stay my style has changed a lot over the years.
At 44 I was diagnosed with breast cancer, and this really turned my world upside down. In an instant I had absolute clarity on what was important in life.
My family, health and happiness.
It was a big slap in the face to slow down, be kinder to myself and it made me realise that health and fitness isn’t about looking a certain way or the next challenge, it was about FEELING amazing.
I am also REALLY passionate about helping women realise as you age you can FEEL AMAZING. It’s all about discovering what works for you and making sure you have the foundations in place before trying to add more to your already busy schedule.
If you are looking for an ‘old school’ personalised program where you actually get support, I’d love to work with you.
If you’re in Cairns we’d love to see you at our Bootcamp which has been running for the past 9 years and the best fitness community you could imagine.
