Hey, I’m Chriss,

I have been a fitness and fat loss coach for 20 years.

I teach people how to lose weight and keep it off for life, by making realistic changes that will last long term.

  • No fad diets
  • No excessive exercise
  • All food groups allowed (and encouraged)
  • Progress NOT Perfection


I am a regular person just like you. I’m a busy Mum, a wife, a friend, a daughter, and a lover of life. ** You can read about my (fat) start into the fitness industry HERE

I am a big fan of Kath n Kim, Wonder Woman, my little Pomeranian dog Timmy and all things 80’s.

I don’t like green smoothies. I do like champagne.

I absolutely LOVE teaching my outdoor fitness classes with a truly wonderful bunch of like minded people.



If you are frustrated with all of the confusing messages out there about health, fitness and weight loss.. You have come to the right place !!

I give health and fitness advice you can finally understand.


Some (shocking) facts about me.  ?

  • I don’t work out every day
  • Sometimes I don’t feel like working out at all (although, I always feel like it was worth it after I have finished).
  • I don’t live for the gym. I much prefer to work-out in the great outdoors.
  • I put sugar in my tea
  • I eat bread almost everyday (Gasp!!)
  • I don’t like chocolate or coffee (I have been told that’s weird)
  • I love eating (most) veggies
  • I don’t have six pack abs
  • I do like to maintain a healthy weight
  • I believe that you cannot tell the health or fitness of someone just by looking at them
  • I believe in balance, not perfection

I’ve got lots of wonderful stuff going on in my life, I’m sure you do too.

That’s why I do the Minimum Effective Dose of exercise .

Quick, effective workouts that cover ALL of the bases and give me the most BANG for my BUCK in the least amount of time.

I don’t want to spend half my life in the gym or obsessing about every bite of food I put in my mouth.


Your fitness and fat-loss plan should fit in around your wonderful life, NOT the other way around. 

I have to admit, there was a time when I felt almost guilty about all of that.

Fancy that, a personal trainer who doesn’t eat, breathe and sleep fitness. Who isn’t obsessed with it.

No guilt anymore, it must be true that you get wiser as you get older (45 years young). Now I embrace my fitness philosophy.


I believe in BALANCE



I would love to help YOU achieve your fitness and fat loss goals
