About me

My name is Tara and I'm one of the personal trainers at Genesis Fitness Byford.

Health and fitness has always been a huge player in my life. Having trained in martial arts since the age of 6 and competing at state/national and international level I have a have strong will and determination to succeed!
Fitness is home for me, whether it be lacing up my runners and hitting the pavement or putting on my Karate suit (Gi), I have always found my comfort place here.

Getting the most out of your workout/training is EXTREMELY important. I understand time constraints as a mum with 2 very busy little guys, time and energy is paramount!! No time is wasted in our workouts!

My biggest passions are helping our future Defence force prepare for an amazing journey ahead and Women and children's self defence.
Knowing how to defend yourself is a life skill!!

If you looking for that motivational starter or someone to kick you in the right direction, give me a shout and we can chat about what you need and how I can help.

What sort of intelligence do you have?

Jacqui Louder

All through school most of us have been taught and told that if you are good at Maths, English or Science you are intelligent, and the subjects that require more artistic talent are not given the same labels, but rather deemed hobbies and suited to those less intelligent. Even our Year 12 systems mark up the maths and sciences, and in their wisdom mark down the more creative subjects. What’s interesting about this is how we allow those systems to manipulate our opinions of ourselves and we carry on those labels even after leaving school. There are those of us that also allow those old school labels to affect the way we treat people and potentially cut ourselves off from those that may be very important to us in the future.
