About Me

I am a Hawke's Bay based mobile personal trainer. I have been involved in many aspects of strength and conditioning, including self defense for seniors and older adults for over 20 years. I have worked with an array of acute and chronic medical conditions, whether psychological or physical, from dementia and depression to strokes and Arthritis. 

Maintaining strength and reducing falls in older adults and seniors is of utmost importance, and being able to guide someone on a path that ultimately allows them to lead a better quality of life is a huge responsibility and a wonderful accomplishment.
