where you are
what you have
what you can
If you're here because you're struggling with getting fit and healthy and staying that way then I know exactly how you feel.
For a long time I had a love-hate relationship with exercise and healthy eating and it was always all or nothing for me.
I felt crap about myself when I'd fall off the "fitness bandwagon" and exercise was all about losing weight even though I didn't feel happy.
But that all changed.
After years of binge eating and inconsistent exercise, I realised that it doesn't have to be that way.
In fact, exercise and healthy eating can be simple and even enjoyable and I'm going to show you how!
You deserve to feel amazing
All the obstacles that have stood in your way so far are a thing of the past because if it's not working then it's time to make a change. A healthy lifestyle should make you feel happy and confident because everyone deserves to feel that way, even you!
I'm so glad you found me
I've been a personal trainer for six years and my favourite part of this journey has been helping hundreds of busy mums and dads learn how to be fit and healthy while still living a 'normal' lifestyle.
To make a change, you have to be ready to shift your mindset and realise that healthy isn't short term. Healthy is a way of life that is sustainable and I'm going to show you how to achieve that in a very simple and manageable way.
so why listen to me?
Prior to being a personal trainer, I was a professional dancer so I've had my fair share of mental challenges around body image and the idea of what "healthy" means.
Throughout my dancing career and when I started out as a personal trainer, I had a very skewed perception of healthy eating and exercise and it felt like a constant battle. I was obsessed with the scales and spent many years dieting and fixating on what I saw in the mirror.
As the years went by, my mindset shifted.
I decided to stop caring so much by focusing on exercising regularly and eating mostly healthy foods without calorie counting and guess what happened? I lost 5 kilos! I wasn't looking to lose weight by that point but this moment made me realise that obsessing was the worst thing I could do for my body! Restricting my food intake would lead to binge eating and forcing myself to exercise every day would cause me to burn out and take weeks off at a time.
A manageable and consistent exercise and eating plan is the key to overall wellbeing and it took me a long time to realise that.
Throughout the last three years I have grown my own Personal Training and Group Fitness business called Fit For Change just north of Wollongong in NSW where I've helped hundreds of mums and dads learn what took me so many years to figure out.
I want people to realise that the scales aren't important and what is important is keeping our bodies healthy, energised and strong for overall wellbeing and quality of life.
