Most of my life I have been into sport playing rugby, athletics and the occasional odd sport here and there which lead me down the path of the fitness industry. Whilst finishing my college Diploma I was figuring out how I wanted to go about starting my future career and ended up choosing to go to University as I had been accepted by one of the top 3 in the country for Health and Fitness and I wanted to be the best I could be. This path took me further into the sciences of health and fitness and I took an interest in injury rehabilitation and weight management which I then gained further experience after University in 2014 as well as working for various Chiropractic clinics as a massage therapist and spinal rehab instructor and slowing trying to build my own private business.
In 2016 Tarka Fitness was born and I wanted to create a service that was available for all not just the people who had lots and lots of money. In the early years it was difficult. I had continues back issues, became overweight and was diagnosed with depression, so I spend a year working on myself trying to figure out a way to get what I want out of life and discovered a few things about myself along the way. This part of my life is where Tarka Fitness core values of health, happiness and longevity comes from. We know the importance of not only achieving good health, both physical and mental, but also being happy and finding ways to achieve this for your whole life as it can take time and work.
This is why Tarka Fitness has a no judgement, non-intimidating environment and we strive to support every client to achieve a healthier and happier life.
