What made you get into the health/fitness industry?
Always a fitness person at school, however decided to take a different path at Uni over in the UK. When I came to Australia I realised that was a mistake! and I came back to sport. Moving to Australia mad me see that I loved the outdoors & saw how everybody was outside and could work out/exercise in parks and just wanted to be a big part of that.
How long has Healthy Habit Been around for?
I Started Healthy Habit in 2010.
Had you worked in the fitness industry before that?
I worked in a couple of gyms before starting Healthy Habit, then co-managed working in both Gyms as well as getting HHF up and running.
What Differentiates Healthy Habit Fitness?
Healthy Habit Fitness is outdoor Group fitness training. I find that people who come join HHF are bored of the gym, they can be sick of the atmosphere that some gyms create, i.e music can be too loud or not what they want o be listening too. It can be too busy, can’t use the things they want to use.. AND especially if people have been working inside an office all day- they don’t want to go into another crammed inside space, they want to get outside into the outdoors, fresh air! It’s prettier and nicer. It can also be a lot more challenging, as we can use a wider range of activities e.g natural elements/running alongside weight training. People also enjoy the competitive nature (but in a friendly way!) because of the team like nature of group training.
