Kia Ora, I’m Helena and I may just be one of the most enthusiastic people you’ll ever meet.
I became a personal trainer and group fitness instructor because, getting fit after having 3 kids, changed my life and now I’m on a mission to share that life changing energy with as many people as I can.
I experienced severe post-natal depression throughout my 20’s, then at 32, after my 3rd child I found myself, unfit and unhealthy both physically and mentally. Choosing to do something about it, making my well-being a priority in my own life, led to me getting into shape, then being completely hooked on how good it felt being fit and strong.
When I’m not running around after my 3 kids, and helping others achieve their health goals, you can find me in the kitchen cooking up a storm or training for athletics. I absolutely love to run fast, jump over things, and lift heavy objects! I’m currently a top world ranked master’s athlete across a number of events and hold numerous New Zealand and Oceania Masters Athletics Records. I enjoy chasing records and holding a world record is a life goal of mine. I still love competing with the youngsters and am fondly known as ‘Track Mum’.
I am passionate about empowering people to get strong, while finding joy in exercise in a way that they will continue to thrive on. Whether you are wanting to get fit after having children, develop functional strength for life, run faster, play harder or want to learn to move some crazy heavy objects, I can help you and make it fun along the way.
