About me

Sport and fitness have always been an integral part of my life. Growing up I was heavily involved in hockey, cricket and rugby union. I have been fortunate enough to play rep cricket and national hockey for my country, as well as being selected for the Defence Force hockey and Army cricket teams. My five years in the army also fostered my passion for fitness and helped me to push myself further than I ever thought I could go.

After moving on from the army, I worked as an electrician in the high voltage industry for 10 years and while I enjoyed the work, I didn’t really love what I did. Following a rough patch in my personal life, I refocussed my energy into my fitness and found that the gym, and looking after my health, was a huge stress reliever and allowed me to better deal with my situation. There is no better feeling of satisfaction than leaving the gym after a workout session knowing you have given 100% and achieved something.

Having first-hand experience with how health and fitness can help build a person back up and improve their outlook on life, I have a passion to draw on this experience to inspire others and help them to change their lives for the better.

I understand that every person is different and can tailor my sessions to all fitness levels. My desire is to help you achieve your goals by building your functional strength while having fun and achieving things you never thought possible. I will support, encourage and guide you at every step in your journey.

The unconscious truth: mind-body exercise myths debunked

Elise Watts

With so much hyperbole around fitness, you are forgiven for being taken in by the ‘chinese-whispers’ around mind-body exercise. Ceaseless infomercials exaggerating results of fitness fads leave consumers skeptical of the benefits of anything that is popular or different, allowing myths to be perpetuated. For instance, many know that pilates was created by Joseph Pilates, but that it was developed to treat injured soldiers during World War I is less known. People often mistake pilates as an exercise for dancers, with few knowing that its creator was influenced by boxing and martial arts. Many believe yoga is about ‘twisting yourself into a pretzel’ and standing on your head, when it actually has a deeper purpose. Let's review these common myths to shed light on the enigma that is mind-body exercise.
