Kat Jacob

PRIVATE & SMALL GROUP COACHING

FRCms

Kat is an Australian with German background, and her sporting experience reaches across a variety of different disciplines from horse riding, martial arts, surfing, running and pilates to her latest obsession - handstands.

 

After a stint in the corporate world and longing for something more meaningful, she became a coach in early 2016 and quickly fell in love with the movement and gymnastics side of training.

Over the past few years, she has been continuously learning from many of the leaders in the industry - including Functional Range Systems, Gymnastic Bodies, Emmet Louis, Kit Laughlin, Ido Portal, Mikael Kristiansen, Yuri Marmerstein and more.

Through her technical knowledge and experience, Kat understands that improving one’s movement capacity is a long journey rather than a quick fix, and highly values quality of movement.

 

She loves educating and empowering her clients whilst helping them build strong and mobile bodies. Enabling them to chase anything they want in life, for as long as they want, without physical limitations.

 

Let’s face it – life is too short to sit on the sidelines.

 

Aimie Smith

PERSONAL TRAINER

 

Aimie specialises in a holistic approach to movement and exercise and over the past 15 years has worked with clients ranging from Hollywood Stuntmen and Professional Sports People needing rehabilitation and programs to support their intense workload to Seniors who have never exercised and everyone in between.

Aimie works with us on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings as a Personal Trainer and runs Mobility, Yoga and Pilates classes on request for small groups, she has a strong focus on Functional Movement, allowing the body to become stronger for everyday life, not just the gym.

Before moving to Sydney in 2016 Aimie ran a successful Personal Training studio for 8 years in the UK. 

As a child, Aimie struggled with her weight and health and at the age of 15 took up yoga. After feeling the immediate benefits she joined a gym at 16 where she became hooked on all things health-related. She lost 30 kg over a two year period and felt the pull of the gym, so got her Personal Training qualifications and started working in a gym and never looked back.
