I often get asked WHY I became a coach…
To be honest, I never dreamed I would be….
I’ve spent my early twenties struggling with an eating disorder. I remember feeling lost, confused and not knowing how to recover or move forward. I remember being bombarded with social media posts telling me how I should look, what I should do… yet nothing stuck, nothing helped. Ultimately, I was unhappy and a shell of the woman I could be.
Fast forward a few years, I got myself an amazing coach (Alice) and she pushed me to learn about nutrition, training and also addressed mindsets that had been holding me back for so many years. I became confident, found my voice again, started to set and achieve goals in all areas of life. Developing an eagerness to further my knowledge and a love of training!
The end result saw me leave my comfortable career, get a formal qualification and from there, a deep passion ignited in me to help other women. To become educated myself to help bring about change, because all around me, I saw women who were suffering as I once was and that is not a way to live.
Being an empowering woman, I am privileged to be a part of a community where that is what we are all about.
Not only do I love to see our clients achieve results when it comes to training and body composition goals, but ultimately my goal as a coach is see clients become educated, confident and realise their self-worth. Just like the team round motto says, I want to see our clients “find their strong”, whatever that looks like for THEM.
There is so much more to health and fitness than weight loss or being “lean”. Seeing our clients develop mental resilience, learning how to set them selves goals, understanding nutrition, how to train in alignment with their goals and no longer fall prey to all the unhealthy, unsustainable options that flood the market and their news streams daily… To me, that’s true progress and that is what being a coach is all about. I want to help bring about change that will LAST!
CAREER & BUSINESS
Personal training has been my full time job now for over 2 years operating both online & from Surge Fitness Perth, with an online client base under the Team Round banner focusing on lifestyle packages encompassing both training and nutritional components. I’ve have taken part in various team round based events, retreats & seminars. I do believe as coaches our knowledge should always be advancing and plan to continue studying throughout the coming year.
