Get Roasting!

Heidi Thornton

Most people do not eat enough vegetables, which is such a shame as they are a fabulous source of vitamins, minerals and fibre. Plus, the non-starchy vegetables (such as leafy greens, broccoli, carrot, zucchini, cauliflower and capsicum) are low in kilojoules, meaning you can fill your plate with them and not worry about it negatively impacting your weight. That sounds pretty great, right?

We should be aiming for five serves of vegetables a day, with one serve being half a cup of cooked vegetables or legumes and one cup of salad vegetables. A great way to reach your five veg recommendation is to include vegetables at both lunch and dinner. 

About me

Hi my name is Kimberly and I have been working with Genesis Fitness since March 2012.
I am hugely passionate about health and fitness and love being part of this industry.
I started with Genesis in the group fitness department and teach all forms of freestyle including Step, Cycle, Fatburner, Total Body, Tone and Core, Body Blitz and BAT. I also teach all of our signature series which so far includes MF45, BX45 and shockwave. My specialty though is Pilates. I danced throughout my whole childhood and was introduced to Pilates at the age of 10. I quickly fell in love with it and began teaching at age 16 and have been teaching ever since.
Within Genesis I have had many roles since joining including reception and assistant member care and I am currently Group Fitness Coordinator (GFC) and Fitness Division Coordinator (FDC) for Mayfield.
I'm passionate about my club and Genesis so please feel free to contact me any time...
