My love for movement began at a young age. It started with climbing trees in South Africa, my hometown. When I moved to New Zealand, it progressed to mountain biking. During my years abroad in Canada, I spent all my free time snowboarding or hiking. I finally found myself in a gym falling in love with resistance training. Exercise made me feel ALIVE and I’ve been hooked ever since.

My goal is to make a difference in the world, starting with you. I want you to glow with happiness after a workout, to THRIVE and not just survive and most of all to learn safe, practical and effective methods to achieve your fitness goals.

My preferred training methods are a combination of strength and functional training to make you strong for life. Incorporating pilates inspired moves, will assist in challenging the little muscles, improving balance and stability. And of course a few sweaty HIIT sessions to burn fat and challenge you mentally.

I will be your knowledgeable fitness friend, there to help you fall in love with exercise and support you on your journey to become the best version of yourself.

Certifications:

  • Working towards a Bachelor of Health Science specialising in Acupuncture and herbal medicine.
  • Advanced Personal training
  • Certificate in First Aid

Fitness and health has been a central part of my life since I was a teenager, whether it be bettering myself for a specific goal such as a boxing match or football tournament, or supporting others on their fitness and sports journeys.

Growing up as a skinny ginger kid in the north of England, I loved seeing how fitness changed my life for the better. It kept me out of trouble, made me strong and despite being challenging, gave me the confidence I didn’t even know I was missing. It was here that my passion for exercise grew and the seed for my future career as a personal trainer was planted.

As a trainer I continue to be amazed by the benefits of exercise both physically and mentally, and strive to support others on their fitness journeys. For me it’s all about tailoring approaches and creating fun environments that help you achieve your goals.

Sometimes this might mean running you through a boxing session that helps you beat away the stresses of a work day, other times it might be a fast paced circuit or some strength and conditioning, my main priority is that we develop a programme that fits your needs and continues to grow and change with you.

Qualifications:

  • New Zealand Certificate in Exercise Level 4
  • New Zealand Certificate in Exercise Level 5
  • First Aid Certificate

I’ve never been a natural athlete – as my Mum would tell you I have spent most of my life avoiding eating vegetables or getting sweaty -and instead tried every new diet, treatment, fad etc to get in shape! A few years ago something clicked and I discovered a love of training & the way it made me feel. It did wonderful things for my self-belief and I think that’s the reason I stuck with it. I’ve made it part of my life & I want to help other people do the same.

Aside from the aesthetic & health benefits – my favourite reason for training is the confidence that comes from it. You can’t beat the feeling of completing a tough session, achieving a PB or smashing a goal. I love the ‘aha’ moments when people realise they are stronger mentally and physically than they first thought.

I provide safe and effective training in a fun, supportive environment. I want my clients to know that I am their biggest cheerleader and help them feel motivated and inspired to reach their goals.

Qualifications:

  • New Zealand Certificate in Exercise Level 4
  • New Zealand Certificate in Exercise Level 5

I entered the gym for the first time at age 14, standing 160cm tall and weighing in at 48 kg. From day one, I had a natural passion for fitness and training. After my first year of training with my personal trainer I already knew what I wanted to do, and at age 16, my passion for health and fitness, coupled with my sporting background, led me to becoming a certified personal trainer. My career began actually working on my own health and weight challenges and trying to gain knowledge to only better myself. As a young teenager I struggled with my weight and overcame personal obstacles which helped me realise the importance of exercise and eating healthy. I strongly believe in the necessity for an active lifestyle, encompassing a balance of all the compulsory components of fitness. Over the years, it has given me great satisfaction to pass along my existing knowledge and enthusiasm with the highest standard of service, safety and professionalism to those wanting to adopt a lifestyle of physical and mental well-being. I try to create a training environment that not only motivates but also empowers individuals to continually challenge themselves in a fun and rewarding way. I believe that we all, regardless of our current conditioning, are able to achieve the goals that we have set out for ourselves. With consistency and perseverance, anything is possible.

Qualifications:

  • Level 2 CYQ Gym Instructor
  • Level 3 CYQ Personal Trainer
  • Level 3 Diploma in Exercise Referral
  • Level 4 Diploma in Physical Activity and Weight Management for Obese and Diabetic Clients
  • REPs Kettlebell master
  • REPs Circuit training instructor
  • REPs Core Strength and Stability Instructor

My name is Martin Betty, I am 47 years old and have honestly spent 45 years avoiding “the gym”. After months if not years of saying to myself that I must go for a run or telling myself that I need to look after myself better I finally googled ‘Personal Trainer’. After I did the initial consultation I was honestly thinking “What have I done!” But I went back, and I have kept going back. At some point it became addictive… Now those of you who know me, know that me and exercise have always been polar opposites. Having a Personal Trainer that is fun and encouraging and really understands my potential is part of my new addiction! I come from a corporate world and going to a gym was just not something that ever appealed to me. For a start, I didn’t know what to do, and I didn’t want to make a fool of myself in front of a gym full of “beautiful people”. Even now, I still don’t feel like I would ever fit in or feel comfortable going to a “Gym”. My partner and I signed up for a couples personal training sessions and we loved it so much that we really want to encourage others to take the leap and give it a go… I managed to convince my amazing personal trainer Gabriel Bajings to come with me. With his expertise, we have created a wonderful private personal training studio, full of the latest and greatest fitness equipment. My personal goal is to help people just like me (and you) to take the action they have long wanted to take and feel great about themselves. I look forward to meeting you soon!
