As the owner of Back Yourself Fitness my personal goal for all of our clients is to make sure we're there to help every way we can. I pride myself on being a support network for my clients and making sure they're focused on what they want to achieve. Each session I put clients through a workout that is specifically designed to help take a step closer to their specific goals. Your age, ability, disability, limitations or experience in a gym is a non-issue and I make sure that every client feels comfortable and there is always a workout we can get through. I started Back Yourself Fitness to help improve people's health and lifestyle, and since the business began back in 2014 I've been amazed by the results my clients have been able to achieve.
Growing up, I had a hand in all sports and always will to try new things and to push myself to the limit. One sport that stuck with me was swimming. I made national champions where I, not along competed but, also medaled multiple times including Gold. I was selected for many teams over my career, however, just missed World Championship team in 2016.
Through this, I found a passion for health and fitness. Since finishing swimming, I have just completed my Cert III and IV in Fitness and am currently studying Exercise and Sport Science at university. I have had the opportunity to train with world class athletes and coaches. I have also had the opportunity to coach a variety of athletes including the Target 2020 Paralympic Teams.
STRENGTH & MOVEMENT
Strength and Movement is a group training environment which focuses on three things: Getting stronger, moving better, and a supportive community. The sessions are a hybrid between 1on1 personal training, and a boot camp style workout. Instead, the sessions are limited to 8 people which means that each person is coached through the proper technique of each exercise whilst still being part of a group dynamic. These sessions are designed with particular emphasis being on a compound movement.
BC Martial Arts
We teach BCMA (BC Martial Arts), a mixed martial art created to go hand in hand with BJJ (Brazilian Jiu Jitzu) to provide a comprehensive mixed martial art. BCMA teaches self-defence, punching, kicking, elbows, knees, striking defence, takedowns and basic groundwork. BCMA is set upon three pillars of mind (knowledge of martial arts and the body and the importance of continual education), body (martial art technique and physical health and fitness), and soul (self-development towards becoming a better person and a providing a greater contribution to the world community).
Nutritionist & Dietician
Through a comprehensive nutrition and lifestyle assessment, I work with my clients to set realistic health goals, create an individualised food plan and provide education and resources to make sustainable change. Review sessions are designed to re-assess goals and to help clients stay on track. .
