I was born and breed in Tauranga and didn’t have the flashest start in life with Open Heart Surgery at a day and a half old, with repairs when I was 5 and a few other touch-ups along the way. As a kid I was never the fittest or fastest and at school however, I never let my condition stop me and carried on enjoying sport and exercise.

Fast forward a few years, and with the same attitude, along with discovering the effective combination of diet and exercise, I reached the pinnacle of my chosen sport.
Nowadays I’ve changed direction and am pursuing new fitness goals which I enjoy. I love being strong and active and feel my family benefit from it too, especially when it comes to throwing kids in the air up at the school pool!

Whether your goal is to get fit, improve quality of life, get stronger, get in shape for that holiday that’s coming up, or have had the word from your doctor, don’t put it off any longer!

You know that feeling you get in your chest when something feels right? Your chest and heart feel warm and swell with pride or joy? It’s the feeling I get when I see my children doing something awesome or when the All Blacks run out of the tunnel.That’s the feeling I got when I first set foot in a gym. I was home. It felt right!

I have trained since I was 13 years old, run cross country and competed in Aerobics and Fitness competitions. I have been a Les Mills Group Fitness Instructor and worked at gyms around New Zealand and the U.K.  Recently I have been Personal Training here in Tauranga up until the birth of our daughter on Waitangi Day 2016! So my role at Lift PT is taking care of your nutrition. This goes hand in hand with training and I cannot stress enough the important role a sound nutrition plan will play in helping you achieve your goals. But I don’t believe a clean diet should be boring!

My passion is taking healthy food and putting an exciting twist on it! Check out our photo gallery for examples!
