“Your body is a reflection of yourself.”
Strength and Hypertrophy Training, Functional Training, Youth Training
I originally began training in the gym when I was 15 years old to increase my strength and size for basketball. I began to see great progress which really made me fall in love with the gym and all aspects of training. I have always loved helping others and watching other people in the gym helped me realise my passion to train others and help them reach their goals.
The gym has helped me greatly mentally and physically. I am now much more confident in my body and would love the opportunity to help you transform your own body.

Strength and Hypertrophy, Mobility and Flexibility
Exercise and sports in both a recreational and competitive setting have always been a cornerstone of my life. Growing up I was always part of a team environment playing soccer, as well as training for solo events in swimming and cross country.
After finishing high school, I gained a keen passion for the gym. This introduced me to all the benefits resistance and mobility training can have in supplementing sport-specific performance and overcoming injuries. I instantly knew I wanted to help others reach their own personal fitness goals whether they be a strength, aerobic or simple movement pattern focus.
I believe the keys to positive change begin with a sustainable, progressive approach that is consistent and fun!

Pilates and Core strength, Mobility and flexibility, Fat loss and weight management, Rehab essentials injuries, Boxing, Group training, Body balance
I am originally from the oldest capital in the world, Damascus (SYRIA) where I completed my bachelor’s degree in Translation and my passion for fitness first commenced. From an early age I was involved in sports and struggled especially in team sports, which ultimately motivated me to start working out and after seeing the improvement in myself, has turned into a lifelong passion.
I started my career as a group fitness instructor in Dubai where I was fortunate enough to learn from many famous international coaches. After that, I moved to Australia and completed personal training, Pilates, and body balance certificates. I also qualified in boxing and high intensity training.
I carried out a Rehab training course after experiencing back pain and developed knowledge and passion for the relationship between injuries and lack of muscle control which I emphases during my teaching/training.
I believe that there is no better feeling in life than inspiring people to engage in a healthier lifestyle. My overall love for health and wellbeing gives me great privilege to work and assist you here at HBF Stadium.

“There is no greater instrument for optimising human physiology than a nutritious diet and a correctly prescribed exercise regime. Both should be accessible to every Australian.”
Cardiovascular development and anaerobic threshold training, Strength and conditioning, Late phase injury rehabilitation
Having commenced my own fitness journey as an endurance runner I first set foot in the gym as a means of overcoming the injuries and muscular imbalances acquired through running. Under the guidance of skilled exercise professionals I quickly overcame my injuries and found myself hooked on this new style of training. Under my new regime I was feeling better than ever. I felt stronger, moved better and was making progress in areas I had never even considered previously.
In the 8 years since this time my focus has been on the study of how exercise can best be applied to optimise human wellbeing and overcome the detrimental effects of the largely sedentary lifestyle so many of us are forced to lead in the modern world.

Strength and conditioning, Body movement, Sustainable weight loss, Myofascial release, kids and adults disability fitness, Aqua fitness
I am originally from New Zealand, having moved to Australia when I was 18. My nationality is of Maori and Cook Island descendant.
My passion for fitness began with my own weight loss journey. Having lost 25kg, this kick started my strong passion for health and fitness. The opportunity to learn from and share my experiences, heavily influenced my decision to change direction as a labourer and become a Personal Trainer.
Having been in the industry for over 6 years, I focus my training and education on setting achievable and realistic goals to encourage sustainable healthy lifestyle changes, not quick fixes.
I believe everyone has the potential to improve on all aspects of life, especially in the area of health and fitness.
During my free time, I enjoy spending quality time with my family and friends. I am an avid basketball player and NBA fan, and enjoy football (AFL) and gaming as well.

“Do something today that your future self will thank you for”
Pilates and mobility training, traditional strength based training.
Coming from a dancing background, I have always had a profound love and respect for the human body and what is achievable through hard work and discipline. After suffering an injury which ended my dancing career, I started taking Pilates classes for rehab and instantly knew that teaching Pilates and exercise in general was my new path in life.
I believe in building a sustainable routine; one that excites you to come into the gym and move in a way that feels good. Your wins are my wins, and it is my honour to help people every day make small steps towards their big goals!
