KIM

Business Owner & Functional Movement Coach

Specialties

  • Functional Training (kettlebells, powerbags, battling ropes, bodyweight movement)
  • Movement Restoration & Injury Rehabilitation

Bio

As a competitive swimmer for over 10 years, fitness has always been my focus and passion. With intentions to complete a law degree, for me PT was planned to be a flexible job to get me through all the years of studying ahead, but it didn’t take me long to realise personal training and fitness needed to be my career, not just a casual job!

I worked in a PT studio for over two years before starting up Peachi Personal Training in 2011. I’ve since completed a Bachelor in Exercise and Sport Science at Deakin University, and continue to partake in extensive continued education, which has allowed me to develop a great depth of knowledge on the human body and exercise. I specialise in injury management, postural improvement and all things functional training.

My passion is two-fold – I absolutely love the Peachi community we have built, and I’m also dedicated to lifting the standards  the fitness industry as a whole by facilitating professional development courses for personal trainers.

LUCY

Member Manager & Functional Movement Coach 

Specialties

  • Pregnancy and Post-Natal Training
  • Mobility Restoration

I have a different path from most coaches in the health industry. I didn’t do a sport growing up but loved PE and moving. Towards the end of high school my dad inspired me down this path by choosing to change his lifestyle and diet instead of relying on pills to help his health condition.

This inspiration led to me obtaining a Bachelor of Exercise Science (Clinical Practice) and then a Master of Clinical Exercise Physiology.

Exercise to me is medicine. I have seen this in hundreds of hours of placement with clinical populations, with my dad but also with my own mental health condition.

My areas of interest are what I’m passionate about Women’s Health and Mental Health.

TIFF

Specialties

  • Boxing
  • Mental health

Bio

Sport and fitness have nearly always played a major role in my life. Those times when I didn’t prioritise it, I felt depressed and lost. I now appreciate exercise as an outlet and tool for managing my mental health condition and love the challenge and variety I can create for myself within my training.

Adventurous by nature, I’ve dabbled in many different sports from rockclimbing and gymnastics to kung fu and pole dancing. What I’ve come to realise is that I’m most passionate about bodyweight movement- dance, animal flow, calisthenics, martial arts, boxing to name a few. Since joining Peachi, I’ve learnt the value of functional training and movement restoration and am currently studying the Master Functional Trainer program.

My goal as a coach is to provide training that is both fun and empowering. I believe it should have an overall purpose or goal for improving your long term quality of life, from the way you move to the way you feel and especially for increasing your self esteem and happiness. I want clients to be as excited about movement as I am and to find that which inspires them most and makes them feel alive!

An advocate of lifestyle medicine, I also have a passion for nutrition

MARY

Specialties

  • Pilates
  • Injury and surgery rehabilitation

Bio

I worked in the corporate world for a long time, and one day I was sitting at my desk and I had a light bulb moment – ‘I’m going to do what I love’! So I resigned from my job and I started my Certificate III in Fitness, along with my Certificate IV in Pilates. I put the Cert III in Fitness on the back-burner for a while and focussed on Pilates, I was lucky to be offered a job teaching Pilates straight after I got my qualification and I haven’t looked back.

A short time after that I started to experience pain in my shoulders, I saw a couple of doctors and they told me that the only way to relive the pain was to get a cortisone injection. I rejected this and decided to try strengthening the muscles around my shoulders. I tried a couple of gyms and PT studios around my area but they just didn’t feel right for me, then I found Kim and Peachi. Kim didn’t tell me to stay home when I couldn’t move my neck or my arms, she asked me to come in anyway, whilst everyone else was doing a class or their PT program, Kim was releasing my muscles, I would walk out of there feeling much better than when I walked in! During these times we would chat about all things life as well as fitness. She would often tell me to finish my Cert III and work at Peachi, so one day I did!

Honestly our clients are just amazing, they are a great bunch of people they are fun, they are strong, they are hilarious, working at Peachi is such a fun time. I am so lucky to be part of this community. This is so much more than a job to me, connecting with our clients and watching them grow both in strength and confidence is so satisfying, seeing the joy in their faces when they nail something is wonderful. I love creating new playlists, so there is always something fun playing in the background! If you like to work hard and sing along to some fun tunes be sure to come to one of my classes!
