Instructor of the Month

Congratulations to Katrina who is our instructor of the month!

1. What led you to get into becoming a fitness trainer? I started teaching in Griffith over 20 years ago at a remote rural community club. The only instructor in town was leaving for the big smoke and I was put through initial step training to replace her. I have been a passionate advocate for group exercise for 30 years. I Started exercising with Jane Fonda and Richard Simmonds complete with sweat bands legwarmers and thong unitards.

2. Outside of the gym, what do you like to do for fun?  I love spending time with my friends (many of whom are also my gym buddies from Allsorts) I love spending time with my family. I love fine dining and a movie at the dendy lounge. My two girls are both passionate gym junkies ( most of you know Rachel, I taught her everything she knows and yes I did look that good 30 years ago)  I love a good red wine and anything/ anyone that’s fun …. The naughtier the better favourite saying “if you obey all the rules you will never have any fun ”

3. What is one thing about you that most people don’t know? I am a midwife and have delivered over 1000 babies I now manage a nursing home looking after 81 elderly clients who have been injected with my passion for group ex with regular tai chi and arm chair Zumba classes.

5 Week Challengers

We’re now half way through the 5 Week All Sorts Transformation Challenge and I’m sure many of you are starting to see some great results.

You’re probably pushing your mind and body to limits you never thought possible and starting to feel pain and muscle soreness that you may not have experienced before. This Challenge is a tough one and takes dedication and determination, so just remember that the moment you want to quit, is the moment you need to keep pushing to achieve the best results!

Keep reminding yourself of your goals, stay motivated together in your teams and remember if it doesn’t challenge you it doesn’t change you!
If you are unable to attend any of our group training classes then jump onto our youtube page for all the best exercises from our group training.
With only 2 more weeks left until the final weigh in, now is the time to step it up a gear! Prizes for the most improved team will be awarded on November 28th!
