Lowers blood pressure, bad cholesterol, stress and anxiety.
Shapes and contours your body into perfection. 
Increased muscle strength, power, endurance and size.
Increases and restores bone density as weight training helps retain calcium in your bones. It also reduces back and knee pain by building muscle around these areas.
Improves posture and balance by strengthening your joints.
Improves flexibility – by working your muscles through a full range of motion. 
Injury prevention – Strong muscles, tendons and ligaments are less likely to give way under stress. 
Weight training allows you to sleep better, i.e. fall asleep quicker and sleep deeper. Clinical studies have shown regular exercise to be one of the three best tools for effective stress management.

I am the Head Coach and Nutritional Specialist at Evo. I have a huge determination and focus to help empower men and women in fitness and to encourage us to support and champion each other. I have always been extremely passionate about fitness and helping others so being a trainer was the most natural step for me to take. I dedicate my time training people using the best functional skills and tools that give them the body and confidence they have been searching for. To me, good nutrition is not something you have to do, it is what your body deserves in order for you to live life fully energised and uplifted. It is important to me to educate clients in healthy sustainable eating. Well-being is of the body, health and mind and I help develop clients in all areas. I believe that with the right direction this lifestyle is fun and the benefits – unbelievably rewarding!
