THE BOOST FITNESS TEAM
About Boost Fitness
In 2010/11 I lost 45kg, then completely stepped out of my comfort zone and went back to full time education to qualify as a personal trainer. My reason for wanting to train others was simple. After spending my entire adult life with food issues and being overweight I wanted to pass on some of the motivation that had got me through my weightloss journey, and to share my experience by helping others achieve their goals. So, to achieve this, Boost Fitness was founded.
I started working in a commercial gym as a personal trainer and boxing instructor, but soon got frustrated by waiting for equipment during sessions. It also became apparent that quite a few of my clients felt a little uncomfortable working out in the middle of a busy gym. The decision was made to start up a private PT studio where my clients would have complete privacy. More importantly they had my undivided attention during their PT sessions. We invested in only the best equipment for our clients to use and everything in our studio is commercial grade as you would see in larger gyms.
Expanding the Personal Training team
In late 2012 as Boost Fitness thrived my husband, Greg, came on board after losing over 30kg himself. He closed his company and re-trained as a personal trainer and boxing instructor. We were then able to offer a choice of male or female personal trainer to our clients. Over the years we have also expanded from one boxing class a week to a range of group fitness classes including boxing, strength and abs classes, cardio circuits and HIIT classes (high intensity interval training).
What makes us different
We have first hand experience of what it feels like to live your life as an overweight person. The judgements, along with physical and mental challenges that accompany being overweight. Neither of us will ever pretend it is an easy road but it is one worth following. Your new fitter, healthier self will love you for making those changes one day in the future!
At boost fitness we never shout at clients to push harder or let them leave a session feeling they failed. Our belief is to encourage people to realise their own bodies potential. We offer a relaxed and friendly training environment. This has resulted in many of our clients forging new friendships with each other and gaining valuable support. During the year we also run our body challenges for a little extra motivation.
