Fitness has always been part of my makeup, with my childhood years consumed with sporting activities. However like many of us, I lost my desire for fitness and wellbeing as I navigated my way though life’s challenges.
As many of us have, I spent my early years traveling and establishing my path in life. These travels gave me my first opportunity to manage people and business with Brash’s Music in Melbourne and Far North Queensland. Following this I embarked on a far greater challenge in the building and construction business, quickly moving from personal assistant to manager of Australia’s largest and most successful insurance builder.
It was not until I had moved away from professional life to concentrate on starting a family that I realised what was missing in my life. By chance I read an article in a local paper about a personal trainer who was starting up a circuit training session.
At first I struggled getting back into physical exercise, however as the days and weeks went by, I started to really enjoy the challenge and more importantly the way it made me feel. After the initial 12 weeks, I was hooked. The way I felt, the confidence exercise gave me, and the overwhelming compliments I received from friends and family.
Following our family relocating back to Kew East, I recognised my passion for fitness and wellbeing was far more reaching than just myself. I saw that so many of my friends, colleagues and acquaintances, were also challenged by retaining fitness and finding the confidence to train and energy to live.
Having identified this passion and drive to support others to achieve their personal health and wellbeing goals, I devoted myself to becoming a personal trainer, and established Me Time Training.
My love of the Kew area and its beautiful natural surrounds, along with the invigoration and health benefits of training in nature, inspired me to train my clients in the picturesque Kew outdoors.
It’s been a real joy to help so many clients with their physical fitness and nutrition, and receive such positive feedback about the far-reaching benefits it has had on all aspects of their lives. It’s why I do what I do.
