I was always pretty active as a child and I swam 7 days a week. It wasn’t until my mid 30’s though that I got actively back into fitness after having kids and managing to snatch back a bit of me time.

Discovering weight training was huge a turning point for me. Not only had I discovered a way to train that I actually loved but I started to learn and understand about the nutrition I needed to compliment my hard work and help me see results. Anyone that knows me knows I’m a bit of a foodie. If I’m not eating food, I’m either making it, thinking about it or talking about it. Not wanting to compromise my taste buds for my muscles I started researching and experimenting with my favourite recipes. I transformed them into healthier high protein meals which could slot into my new lifestyle but also be enjoyed by my family.

My interest in nutrition is constantly growing and has been a natural progression alongside my own fitness journey. Studying an applied nutrition course has increased my knowledge about the science behind food and athletic progression. It has also provided me with techniques to be able to pass on my passion and knowledge to help others start, progress and succeed on their own personal journeys. I have never felt fitter or in better shape than I have in my 40’s. You’re never too old to make positive changes where your health is concerned.

You can’t out train a bad diet; you are what you eat!



Rick is our newest addition to the Studio 1 team!

“At 59 years of age I know how difficult it is to motivate yourself and manage the everyday aches and pains. To look around and compare yourself to the younger people in the gym and think how things used to be. Age is no barrier to pursuing a healthier, fitter, and more fulfilling life. Just remember, you only need to be the best version of yourself and only you can make that happen. But we all need a bit of guidance, support and motivation to help us to achieve it right? That’s where I come in. I am new to the profession but not new to fitness. I have been active in sport, fitness and gyms for over four decades, so I have built up years and years of knowledge and skills. I have benefitted from the input of many fitness professionals, most recently, my time at Studio 1 fitness with Kelly and the team, that taught me the importance of nutrition and lifestyle changes. I have recently been enjoying instructing on Tabata classes and that, combined with over 20 years’ experience teaching adults in college, has given me a great platform to share my experience and knowledge with you. I believe fitness should be enjoyed and to tailor programs to fit individuals preferred training methods. Whether your thing is weights, spin, functional fitness or boxing, there’s something here for everyone”.
