My health and fitness journey really started once I had finished having my children in 2012. My first goal was to lose in my baby weight (16kgs) and get back to my pre-baby weight. During my journey I also went back to school and got qualified as a personal trainer and a group fitness instructor. It was from there I got my first job as a group fitness instructor at Dance Dynamics in Ringwood, Melbourne. Then I went and did all sorts of different courses to increase my knowledge so I could educate and teach all my clients on how they could change their lifestyles so they too can achieve their health and fitness goals. Also during this time I lost all my baby weight and found my love for strength and resistance training. Today I work from home full time coaching various online clients using my personalised meal plan and training program that I designed for my business; Merri's Nutrition and Fitness. As I have helped to transform over hundreds of ladies over the past couple of years, I am confident that I can share and educate what I have learnt so you too can be transformed too! One thing I always say to my clients is that if you are willing to put in the hard work and don't give up you will get the results you want. Everyone can do this with the right motivation, drive, passion and support to achieve this.
