SAM
Coach

I became a certified Health Coach in 2000, and I haven’t looked back since.  I have spent the past fifteen years (12 of those overseas) working solely with women, mainly one on one helping them with their health and fitness. I’m still working as a PT but only on a part-time basis as well as my role with LWTC. In my spare time I love spending time outdoors walking, running, cycling with friends from my running club and family members.  I also enjoy travelling to as many new places as possible and experiencing new experiences, foods and different lifestyles.

CORRINE
Coach

I qualified as a NASM Personal Trainer and EIQ Nutrition Coach and explored my passion in positive health and fitness for those reaching midlife and onwards; quickly realizing the importance and huge benefits of Strength Training for us all. Motivation can dwindle quickly if you're eating and exercising purely for aesthetics but changing your mindset and your focus onto how it can make you feel, what your body needs and can achieve, and your overall future health will make a difference.My favourite quote is  “Ability is what you are capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it. ” —Louis "Lou" Holtz
