“Everything I do aims to create change in women’s minds on what they are capable of,
Not only in their fitness, but in their lives.
I want them to discover the amount of strength and power within them and exactly how far they can go.
I want to help them change their mindset so they don’t loathe their body like I did,
Why the hell is this my goal?
Because I started in a place where I was constantly controlled by what others thought of my body
I was constantly focused on losing weight to be skinny
I was constantly focused on training to cut inches
I wasn’t training for myself
I wasn’t working out to improve
And I wasn’t reaching my potential
Until I started functional training
I learnt how to be strong by lifting weights, practising gymnastics and working out hard
My body was changing, I was building muscle, I was getting leaner and I felt so damn good!
I stopped caring what people thought of my body and if they judged me
I realised I love to train the way I do and I wasn’t willing to give that up for anyone’s opinion
If people were going to judge my body, it didn’t matter as long as I loved myself.
I loved my body because I loved what it was capable of; I started to love what I was capable of
How many women can say they are able to lift 90kg over their head, do 100 burpees in 4.49minutes of string together 30 pull ups?
My confidence soared, I was comfortable for the first time in my body
I wasn’t worried about my cellulite as I went to the beach or my stretch marks
And although this wasn’t an overnight process, the changes in my body and mind have been nothing but positive.
They’ve set me free and allowed me to succeed in more than just fitness
They’ve taught me we are much more capable when we love ourselves and strive for growth above all else.
So what do I do now?
I provide women with an environment and community which aims for results based performance
We use expert coaches in small group classes to push and motivate you.
We have a women’s strong-hold providing Functional Fitness for women,
We have CrossFit Tone”
