Personal Trainer and owner of Kick N’ Box
“My vision as owner of Kick N’ Box is to continue to grow and foster a community of support and motivation; a place where people can leave their stresses at the door and take some time to put themselves first.”
I am passionate about fitness and assisting to improve lives of others through fitness, which I know from personal experience not only helps the body, but also the mind. I have been in the fitness industry for over 10 years and will use the experience and knowledge I have gained in that time to continue to grow Kick N’ Box whilst maintaining the unique experience and our members best interest.
Providing the members with the best quality trainers and a place where they have all health professions on hand is a top priority of mine. Over the last decade I have been on many life changing health and fitness journeys with clients with some amazing results. Whilst my job is to motivate and push my clients it gives me much joy and inspiration seeing them push themselves outside there comfort zones and is the reason why I love my job.
I couldn’t be more excited to be sharing the next part of my journey with the Kick N’ Box community and I’m looking forward to what it has to bring.

Personal Trainer, Cross Core Instructor & Receptionist
“My vision for Kick n Box is to create a space where everyone feels welcomed and accepted, no matter who you are or what your fitness level is. I want everyone to be excited to come in and leave feeling accomplished, supported and motivated. I’ll admit it took me awhile to find love in fitness and to figure out what worked best for my body – with a bit of trial and error I began my fitness journey and have found so much happiness in it ever since. I am so excited to help everyone with their own journeys and to be apart of such an uplifting environment at Kick N Box. Not only will the sessions help you work towards your fitness/physique goals. It will also leave you feeling positive, energetic, (very sweaty..) and confident, which is so important for your mental health and one of the main reasons I love group sessions!” You can do anything you set your mind to, the only thing that can stop you is yourself

My vision for Kick n’ Box is to provide a fitness studio that not only offers the highest quality fitness classes, but features excellent instructors who deliver a fun and unique experience for all members.
A community environment where members feel comfortable irrespective of their abilities. A place where members can gain more than just a workout, including exercise knowledge and body awareness but also friendship and social connection.

I have a strong focus on Recovery and Functional Body Movement. I am the in house Remedial Massage Therapist, tailoring treatments to each individual and their needs, with a deep tissue massage and trigger point therapy approach.
My motivation and thrill within Kick n’ Box comes from when members personally accomplish things greater than they thought they could, and perform a skill they thought was impossible. I enjoy the smile from members that shines through the grimace of smashing a tough workout!
I endeavour to embody all of this through my role at Kick N’ Box as a Remedial Massage Therapist, Cross Core Instructor and Personal Trainer.

My vision for Kick n Box, is to create a friendly and community based space where everyone feels welcome, no matter their size, age or fitness level. I want everyone to be able to get a sweat on, work hard, and still be having fun.
Being new to the fitness industry, the atmosphere here at Kick n Box is what drew me in to join up two years ago. Having signed up as a member before becoming a trainer, I know how the classes are run and what members want to achieve and experience from both the Kick Boxing and the Cross Core classes.
I love the energy a good class brings to everyone involved and it really motivates me to create exciting sessions that will be hard and make you push yourself, but leave you feeling great afterwards.
