I am a certified body Revolution Trainer. Our belief is healthy kai plays a major part in our mental and physical well being.

We are what we eat and nourishing ourselves with whole foods helps balance and support our Te Whare Tapa Wha model for Māori health and wellbeing. That is all four pou: Taha Wairua (spiritual), Taha Tinana (physical), Taha hinengaro (mental) and Taha Whanau (family connection, eating together builds connection). The aim to learn strategies to keep your own mauri (life essence) balanced.

"You can't out-exercise a bad diet.  “Nutrition and exercise go hand in hand”. Food is 80% Exercise is 20%.  

I don’t believe faddish diets sustain weight loss but healthy, nutritious food together with regular exercise will.

You could be slowing yourself down and making it difficult to reach your full potential purely because

you are eating the wrong things. By making a few simple changes you will not only improve your health, but also look, feel and perform better.

Contact me for a tailored nutrition program.

Often weight loss and fitness is not achieved until the mental blockages are addressed, Life coaching will help identify and break down these blocks to ensure you achieve your goals. Some areas to work on are your "inner critic and self-limiting beliefs".

 I enjoy playing tennis at a competitive level and fitness is a big factor, so I decided to try working with a personal trainer.  Julia made the sessions very enjoyable with a wide variety of exercises designed to improve my strength and movement.  I also learned some useful stretches to do before and after playing.  The sessions really helped to improve my fitness and I would certainly recommend Julia to anyone looking for an approachable trainer who can design a good programme for their individual goals.

I chose Julia because she understands my goals. I didn't want to be a super-fit athlete – just wanted to get stronger and more toned, and to lose a few of those pesky kilos.  Not terribly difficult goals, but I just wasn't making headway on them by myself.

 Julia provides me with the motivation I need to continually challenge myself.  With her as my trainer, I have cycled 80km in the Taupo cycle challenge, and completed two triathlons.  And I am slowly but surely getting rid of those extra few kilos!

 I look better, I feel better, and I'm healthier than I was a year ago.

 Thanks, Julia - your support has made all the difference!

...I am general pretty motivated so was looking for a knowledgeable PT who could teach me new workouts, exercises and stretches. Julia is a fountain of knowledge and very good on a personal level. She has helped me reach a number of personal goals including weight loss and improving general fitness and strength. 


You have been a breath of fresh air Julia and I have learnt so much from you. I have no hesitations recommending Julia to friends and family.
