Founder & Personal Trainer
After unpleasant experiences using fad diets to lose weight and suffering several injuries due to lack of guidance on form and technique when she first started weight training, Azee was determined to change and find balance. She embarked on a journey to learn the science behind training to find the safest and most efficient way to reach her goals.
She fell in love with resistance training and shifted her focus from chasing the smallest numbers on the scale through endless hours of cardio and minimal food, to being empowered by feeling strong and using proper nutrition to fuel her body for optimal performance.
In pursuit of her passion to learn more about fitness, she took her personal training certificate and completed the Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) course to advance her skills and proficiency.
Azee believes that she can use her experiences accumulated over the years to help others in a similar position to her in the past, to overcome obstacles and get to a better place, both physically and mentally.
She wants to help her clients make healthy and sustainable choices that will set them up for the long term. Azee has worked with clients of all ages and backgrounds, such as those with past and existing injuries, and specialises in fat loss and hypertrophy.
To her, fitness is more than just looking good, it’s about empowering others to show them what they’re capable of.
She lives by the motto: “Fitness is a marathon, not a sprint”.

As someone who faced health obstacles at a young age, Tara made a promise to herself to not only prevent relapse but do her utmost best to remain the best version of herself physically and mentally by making better choices in fitness and nutrition.
This inspired her to pursue her passion for fitness so she can help others achieve their fitness goals and beyond.
Tara believes that mindset is key, and after struggling with body image and self-confidence issues throughout her adolescent years, she has finally understood the true meaning of ‘look good, feel good.’ She has proven to herself that feeling good comes from within, and that can be achieved through making informed choices about your health, and the rest will fall into place.
