My health and fitness journey is a little different to the ‘lose weight’ transformation inspiring stories. Being someone that’s always been active since a toddler, my journey started from specifically when I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism at the age of 14. Dramatic effects occurred to my body such as regular heart burns when at dance training; abnormally rapid fatigue in leg muscles; shortness of breath; drained energy 24/7; weight gain; and severe delayed discounting in nutrition.
This took an enormous toll on my mental state and how I viewed myself and of course my health and fitness as it dramatically felt diminished to the point I was not longer the defending champion in my age group at the Australian Irish Dancing Nationals and my flare was nowhere to be found. I felt as though my time had come to an end and there was no way I could ever feel as strong as I use to at a younger age, thriving and being the pocket rocket I was once known as. My transformation is from a rock-bottom and spiralling breakdown to a stronger than ever, confident athlete.
Since then up until this very moment I’ve realised that no matter where I am in my fitness journey, it is always a learning curve for me and that there is unlimited potential to learn and grow day in and day out. I turned what was an unhealthy spiral of mental and physical states into a fierce passion for body sculpting and elite athleticism. It’s not without hard work, innovation and dedication that will get you to your goals.
I remember a time in life that I thought to myself “I will never have the discipline to make working out apart of my everyday life” and now it’s all I do. All I needed was guidance and a plan. Now I want to teach as many people as I can habits, skills and mindsets to make it a reality sooner then you ever thought possible! This journey has taken me from being lethargic, unhappy, even lost, to a woman that is driven, motivated, energetic and healthy.
As a personal trainer Baulkham Hills coach, my core beliefs revolve around mindset, consistency and discipline. With the correct training & nutrition, I was able to transform my shape and my mind. Believe me if I can do it, so can you! Today I aspire to promote all souls to train from all levels and skill sets to positively impact the lives of from around the world.
This is a lifestyle to me, and I genuinely LOVE to train and eat well to fuel my body. I indulge when the time is right, and I live to challenge myself daily. I try to approach each and every day with the goal of growth and learning. Knowledge is power and growth is moving forward and never looking back!
