 MISSY 

 Owner & Head Coach 

Missy’s health journey began in her late 20s after finding herself 35kgs overweight. Having lost the ability to move freely and experiencing significant pain she was depressed and knew she was in trouble. As a child Missy had trained intensively in the sport of gymnastics and decided it was time to reconnect with movement. The twists and turns in the long and ongoing path Missy has navigated to get out of pain, back to moving without restriction and a large reduction in body fat puts her in good stead to understand the needs of members experiencing all different challenges in life.  ​​ ​

"I guess I'm pretty different to the usual gym owner. Most of them have never experienced what its like to go from athlete to obesity and back again. I understand that 6 week transformation challenges and training without a focus on strength and technique are gimmicks that will only confuse and prolong the problem. A life long commitment to movement (with a high focus on quality), strength and nutrition is the key. My personal experiences mean I have the tools to educate and assist others to make changes for life no matter the goal."
