I am a Tassie Devil, born in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. I learnt about and participated in health and fitness from the beginning of life. I guess you could say I was born to love health and fitness with my genes and my up bringing. I started walking at 9 months and never stopped moving from there.
I competed in state, national and international levels in sports such as running, swimming and waterpolo.
I am a Personal Trainer and Yoga Teacher who has run her own business in Australia, Austria, South Africa, Saudi Arabia and Switzerland. I worked on a 6 star cruise ship as the personal trainer, fitness instructor, yoga and pilates teacher, health and well-being consultant, gym manager and detox and diet expert. I was also lucky enough to train French and Belgium professional golfers on the European Circuit for one year to help them improve their flexibility, strength and endurance.
Since 2009 I have been a crazy Aussie Hippie Chic travelling the world; beginning on cruise ships and continuing by living in Austria, South Africa, Australia, Saudi Arabia and now Switzerland; and bringing health and fitness along for the ride. And to make the health and fitness journey all that much more fun I now have a cheer leader by my side. In March 2013 I had a baby girl Laine. She is a wonderful blessing and gift to my life. For the first time in my life I had the challenge of not just staying fit but getting fit. I have proven to myself not only can health and fitness be part of my life with a family, but my families as well. I am stronger and fitter than before pregnancy and loving the journey too.
My aim is to help others make the rest of their life the best of life full of smiles, happiness and dreams coming true. Believe and Achieve
Remember your why:
In each of my most important successes in life, the key was not giving up on a dream. And the key to not giving up on a dream is understanding why you want to make that dream come true. The better you understand your “why,” the better able you will be to persist when others give up on you. When you come to understand your “why,” you will figure out your way. And once you do this, you will come to appreciate that we have only two limitations in life: our ability to dream and the courage to follow those dreams. Dreaming isn’t difficult (especially when you’re young). It’s the follow-up that’s hard, and that’s why i started this page to help others with similar goals as mine. The sad truth is that few dreams ever become reality. Why is that? Simply put, the answer is in your head. Your mind can be your best friend or your worst enemy, and it’s the deciding factor on what kind of life you live. Your mind isn’t pre-programmed to tell you what to do with the dreams it conjures up. Your mind is only as good as the inputs it receives. If the chief input is a constant stream of “you can’t,” then your dream is dead on arrival. But if the inputs streaming in begin with “you can,” your dreams have a chance of becoming real.
