Our trainers will push you to new limits, that you didn't know your mind and body could reach. They will educate you and provide you with the right tools to ensure you surpass your health and fitness goals. Most importantly, our coaches want you to see positive changes in your life. They aim to build relationships with all clients and focus on getting to know you as a person, learning your aspirations for both your life and your body. It's this genuine relationship with our clients that allows us to push you further and that sets us apart from other fitness facilities in the area.
I started my fitness journey back in 2015 as a trainer at other local facilities. I loved seeing positive change in so many people's lives and health and fitness quickly became my passion.
After being a trainer for a few years, it became evident to me that there was a big gap in the market for a facility that offered more than just cardio sessions. I knew I could offer something different and a step above other training facilities in the area.
I started Body Coaching High Performance in June 2016 with outdoor boot camps run at Greenhills in Cronulla. Here I grew my customer base and quickly started looking for something more permanent. In June 2017, I found the perfect space in Miranda, just off Box Road and this soon became the first Body Coaching facility. The gym grew quite rapidly and before I knew it we had built an amazing, loyal and supportive community.
I knew we would soon need a bigger space and began searching for a new facility at the start of 2019. Jump a few months forward and finally, the perfect space came up in July. I wanted to create an environment that our members truely deserved. Something the Sutherland Shire had never seen before. We got brainstorming and knew we needed to include amenities such as a boxing room, kids room and cafe.
In September 2019, the new gym opened! We celebrated our official open day on Saturday the 28th of September and the team is still in shock with the incredible response we received from our members and the community.
From the bottom of my heart, I would like to say a massive thank you to our members for all of your endless support. None of this would be possible without each and every one of you. I can't wait to see what's in store for Body Coaching over the next few years and I feel so lucky to be able to make a positive impact on peoples lives every single day.
My fitness journey began years ago when I joined a gym in Queensland where I was living at the time. Just like most people I had very little idea about fitness, how to train correctly and use gym equipment. I felt insecure, unfit and hated going to the gym.
I eventually moved back home and joined Body Coaching. I made exercise a habit, not a resolution. I made friends with like-minded people and learnt that there is more to fitness then just having the perfect body, it’s about health, self-love and living life to its full potential!
Health and fitness completely transformed my life and soon became my passion. I began my Cert III and Cert IV in fitness and continued my studies in nutrition. I became a part-time trainer at Body Coaching before quitting my other job and becoming a full-time trainer.
I feel so lucky to help people improve their fitness and simultaneously improve their mindset. It is amazing to see my clients achieve their visions and goals and change their mindset, just like I have. I feel blessed to be apart of the Body Coaching community and can't wait to continue to help others transform their lives, both physically and mentally.

Helping those who are not experienced in a training background to grow and blossom and get to a position that they never thought possible.
What’s your favourite exercise?
I do not have a particular favourite exercise, but I do enjoy any type of training that involves a team aspect. The enjoyment of pulling together and finishing as one I think is great.
What exercise do you dread the most?
My answer to that is a thruster, how I struggle with this. I guess this is just a weakness I need to work on.
What is your Heath and fitness goals?
My goals change are constantly changing and adapting to the new places and positions during different periods. At the moment getting into a position that I’m comfortably swimming and surfing without fatigue is my goal.
What is your best training tip?
Time will give you your result. Nothing comes quick unless you were fortunately gifted from the gods at the start of your journey, this goes for nutrition fitness and stature. Dedication and hard work you’ll find will be your biggest friend.
