My friends call me Hoppy and I have something in common with every one of you… a heart beat and only 168 hours a week to juggle family, work, household duties and exercise, which includes gardening!
Before having four children I worked behind the scenes at many of Australia’s major sporting and artistic events. My carefree weekends were spent training for marathons, triathlons and fun runs, or cycling through parts of our beautiful country. Spare time was spent educating myself about the benefits of good nutrition.
After having children, my career change to qualify as a Personal Trainer was a natural one.
My philosophy is that exercise should not cost a fortune. As an eco fitness trainer I have discovered that nature is the perfect gymnasium. I’ve also found ways to incorporate exercise into my daily household routines. Having recently studied permaculture design, I am converting my suburban backyard into a productive food orchard. You are what you eat.
I believe if you are armed with the right advice, a positive attitude, a willing (and able) body and have access to the great outdoors, you will discover infinite ways to exercise consciously and effectively whilst achieving sustainable results. No matter what title you hold or how busy you are… your path to health and wellness can become like “water off a duck’s back!”.
