Meditate, Exercise, Food, People, Sleep
After overcoming my own weight loss battle and making huge lifestyle changes I wanted to help other people reach their health and fitness goals. It was my passion and managed to make it my career.
I was a self employed Personal Trainer for 5 years before deciding I needed more hours. I found a Pilates studio called KX was opening in Port Melbourne and needed trainers. I got the job, within 3 months partnered with the founder of KX and opened my first studio in Richmond. I now have 6 KX locations and have founded my own concept called KX Cycle.
I did a Transcendental Meditation course about 3 years ago which changed my life. I practice twice daily. I do 1-2 hours of exercise first thing to make sure I get some ‘me time’ before the day starts. I tend to have a natural gauge which subconscious tells me to be alone after working or being around people. I need to regather myself throughout the day between expending energy with people. Without these small reset periods I go into information overload and start to get run down.
If you could choose anyone to be your career mentor who would it be and why?
Any successful self made female business woman. Someone like Michelle Bridges or Janine Allis. Successfully juggling their empires and families is something that interests me.
If you could give one piece of advice to your younger self what would it be?
To take a deep breathe and sleep on it. I was very impulsive in my early days of business. Now I like to let some times pass to digest and seek advice from the right people before acting.
