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.

Explanations vs excuses: which one applies to you?

Jacqui Louder

At times we’ve all had to quickly make up an excuse to cover our tracks for not doing something, doing something wrong, forgetting something important, or simply to hide our complete lack of interest or want to do something. We do this to save face, but often it’s to try and get out of taking responsibility for something we know we should be accountable for. Everyday we are surrounded in the media by our fellow Australian’s refusing to take responsibility for their actions and outcomes. By doing this as adults we are teaching our kids that excuses are a normal and acceptable part of life.
