Christine’s background is totally unathletic. After years of sedentary jobs and inactivity she found herself at 90kg and struggling to chase after a new baby and a toddler. During the weight loss process she discovered exercise and tried marathon running and kickboxing before finding CrossFit – and especially Olympic Weightlifing.

Passionate about the physical and mental benefits exercise can bring, Christine kicked her accountancy career to the sidelines, retrained to be a personal trainer and has dedicated herself to helping people access and enjoy exercise and weightlifting.

Christine sincerely believes that exercise should and can be accessible to everyone. It is not where you start out that matters – the joy is in the journey to somewhere you may never have imagined.
