About me

Hi. My name is Shelley and I'm a Personal Trainer at Genesis Fitness Shellharbour.

My love of health and fitness started at a young age, watching my mum teach aerobics classes (in the leotard and leg warmer days!). Growing up with such a great, healthy role model set me on a good path in life, and one reason I love my job so much is because I can inspire and encourage others to live a healthy lifestyle!

I am a mother to 3 young girls so I understand what it's like to juggle family, work and life commitments. Many of my clients are also mothers who are working hard to lose baby weight or just to get healthier, fitter and stronger so they can chase their kids around.

I specialise in helping ladies transform their bodies through exercise and healthy eating. My areas of expertise include weight training, HIIT (high intensity interval training), training for fat loss, running training, correct of imbalances and mobility.

We will work together as a team to achieve your goals! If it's important you, it is important to me too!

We assume when we see someone crying they are upset, that a lack of skill means someone isn’t trying, that success means winning, and ignorance means unintelligence.
