It was way back in 1987 in the midst of the aerobics craze - fluro, lycra, leg warmers and white Reeboks, I established Sharp Fitness - one of the longest running personal training businesses.
Like most instructors of my generation, I started as a gym and aerobics instructor - I can still remember doing an aerobics display on the stage at the Roselands Shopping Centre!
Fortunately, my career progressed and one of the highlights was running the Human Performance Laboratory at the University of NSW from 1990 to 1995. This was a great experience that gave me a very sound technical grounding.
Over the years I have been privileged to have trained people from all walks of life - elite level athletes, people recovering from cardiac surgery, sports teams, police, the blind, the disabled, the very young, the very elderly, the strong, the frail, the very fit, the first-time exerciser and everyone in between.
I now mainly specialise in exercise for adults through to older adults and I am finding it very rewarding— both personally and for those I am training.
My partner in crime, Melissa, has been involved in the Fitness and Beauty industries since the late 90's. Melissa worked in an exclusive women's only gym in Sydney before we joined forces in 1998.
Melissa added Beauty Therapy to her ever growing repertoire, completing a Cert IV and running her own successful business. Melissa re-joined Sharp Fitness in 2013, and her passion and experience now helps those new to fitness, mums, teenagers, weight loss clients and intermediate trainers to achieve their dreams.
