Meet Our Coaches
After having trouble conceiving my last child I was advised losing weight may help. I was sitting at 127kgs. Desperate to finish my family I changed my diet and started walking on the treadmill. 4 months later and 30 kgs lighter I fell pregnant and went on to have my last daughter. During my pregnancy I gained back what I had lost and I wasn’t sure if I’d find that drive again.
Thankfully after 6-8 months I found it again and went on to turn my whole life around. I have changed my diet, my thoughts about food, making daily movement a priority and focusing on being the best version of me. I lost over 50kgs and have maintained a steady weight for the last 3 years.
My exercise started as walking, then I started adding small runs in. Soon enough I found a love of running and the peace it gave me. I transferred to the road and haven’t looked back.
As much as running and walking helped me lose weight and maintain the loss, I wanted more so I started looking to join a gym. I enquired online with GOPT and Matt invited me down to meet the team. Absolutely petrified I walked in but felt more at ease as I spoke to the coaches. I went home and joined straight away. Stepping into the unknown has been the biggest improvement in my fitness journey. I am healthier, happier, stronger and more confident.
I work in Photography, specifically Preschool and Santa photos. I’ve done this since I was 15 and still have a huge love for it. I also have a passion for health and fitness due to my own experience, so when I was approached to became GOPTs newest coach I knew this was the path I was suppose to be on. I immediately started studying and became a qualified Coach.
I am looking forward to working along side people who share my love for health and fitness and I am excited to establish myself as a coach, helping others on similar journeys to my own and encouraging them to be the best they can be.
