I am 26 years old, living in Wellington, New Zealand with my husband. I am one of the founders of Intensive Health Therapy and I work here as a personal trainer, massage therapist and as CrossFit Coach at Maia CrossFit.
Growing up I was always active – I was an overweight teen but I played a lot of sports, none which I excelled at; I coasted through school and sports until I made the decision to make being active my career. I completed a Diploma in Exercise Science in 2008, closely followed by my massage qualifications later that year. I worked in gyms both in Wellington and London for 5 years but it wasn’t until I returned to NZ in 2013 that I found the beauty and the community of CrossFit and not until 2 years later that I discovered the power of nutrition.
I decided I didn’t want to be mediocre anymore.
Over the past year I have made many changes and sacrificed a lot for my sport – I am more committed than ever to transforming into the athlete I know I am capable of being.
