Meet our new Trainers

Monica Trajceska

Why did you want to become a trainer?

My passion in life is to help, inspire and motivate people to feel empowered and confident. Through my years of people management, I have gained an understanding on the importance of building rapports with my clients to not only make them feel comfortable in our session but also to gain a sense of trust that I will get them to their ultimate goal.

My journey to a personal trainer actually started in primary school when I figured out I loved anything to do with physical activity. I participated in sports competitions and achieved high grades in health classes all through high school and eventually began my Bachelor's degree in Sports Management. I then completed my certificate 3 and 4 in fitness as my passion grew stronger after I ran a group session just for fun with my work team.

Since becoming a group instructor and personal trainer, I have helped my clients get back into fitness, push through that tough first session and inspire them to reach their goals by motivation, feedback on performance and accountability.

What's your training motto?

“Fall in love with taking care of your body”

What sort of training to you do?

Strength training is my favourite type!

What's your favourite food?

Anything Asian fusion or pasta.

What's your top holiday destination and why?

This would have to be Hvar in Croatia. The mountains by the beach side as well as the friendly people make it easy for me to dream about living there one day!

Why did you want to become a trainer?

Becoming a new mother has changed my view on what it means to be healthy. In the past, my focus was to get really strong and fit that I was able to lift twice my bodyweight. I did powerlifting and trained nearly everyday.

Since becoming a mother, my training shifted to lifting my little one hours on end! As most new parents know, it can be exhausting. Not to mention the lack of sleep/recovery. My new goal soon evolved to wanting to cultivate more energy so I can take care of my son. I realised it required taking better care of myself through eating better, exercising again and building morning and evening routines.

I think it's easy to forget to prioritize our own health due to the many demands of family, work, studies... Life! And so as a HHF trainer, I want to support people in putting themselves first again by making healthy a habit, whilst enjoying the process to becoming the best version of themselves!

What's your training motto?

My training motto is "Strive for progress not perfection. If you improve just 1% everyday, you will be 100% better in 100 days!"

What sort of training do you do?

My current training consists of kickboxing and strength training twice a week with recovery through yoga and meditation. In the past, I ran cross country at school and completed a few fun run events like tough mudder, City 2 Surf and F45 play-offs. In 2017 I rehabbed my knee from a motorbike accident which inspired me to get into Powerlifting and study to become an Exercise Physiologist.

What's your favourite food?

My favourite food has got to be ribs that just melt in your mouth.. With sweet potato chips and aioli! *drools*

What's your top holiday destination and why?

My top holiday destination would be Fiji! I've not been yet but it's definitely on my bucket list. I've heard so many good things about it including the beautiful beaches, the people and the culture.
