‘Fitness..make it a habit’ and ‘You never regret a workout.’

 

As soon as I got off the plane from England I looked around this beautiful country with amazing weather and so many beaches and parks around me and I realised my lifestyle needed to change. I wasn’t happy with some bad habits I’d developed at University and wanted to get back into sport and create some healthy habits instead.

 

I had always loved exercise and sport and remembered how good it made me feel. I read that it took only six weeks to form a habit and two weeks to break it. I set myself the 6 week goal and never looked back. It was time to start a healthy habit, a habit of fitness and I wanted to share this with others. 

This is why I started Healthy Habit Fitness. I wanted to create a community of liked minded people all working together to achieve a common health and fitness goal.

 

With a life-long love of sports including swimming, running, cycling, netball and horse riding I then committed 10 years of women’s AFL. I was Vice Captain for two years and Captain for three. I have also Captained the NSW team and the NSW Masters Team.

In the off season of AFL I like to challenge myself with triathlons, half marathons and just recently a marathon and my first 70,3 Iron Woman.

 

I find that training in a group has enormous benefits. We support each other, push each other and have a laugh a long the way.

Ruth Sutton

TRAINER

“You just need to turn up!”

My experience as a trainer for Healthy Habit is a little bit different as I originally joined up as a member of one of the Mum’s and Bub’s sessions when my youngest daughter was about 9 months.  Since making that decision to join, I am now the fittest I have ever been, have taken up surfing,  team sports such as touch rugby, basketball and netball, and have completed the City2Surf, Harbour Run and a half- marathon (contemplating a full marathon!).

I think that outdoor group fitness is a fantastic way to train and get fit.  Working in a group setting increases motivation so much, there is a social aspect which is awesome and being outside is good for the soul (in my opinion).  I know 100% that if I had tried to get fit by myself in a gym for example, I would not have got the results I did.

I have always had an interest in the body and exercise, and completed a diploma of massage therapy after leaving University. However, it was not until I had been training with Healthy Habit for about 4 years that I decided to study and obtain my certificate so I could help others achieve their fitness goals too.  I feel passionate about providing motivating, safe and effective sessions that will make members push themselves and feel a sense achievement once they have finished.  It feels amazing to see people reach their fitness goals and know that you helped them get there.

I also have a special interest in encouraging mums to get back into exercise after having kids. Exercise is great way to take some time for yourself, regain some energy and feel great.  Some of our fittest members are mums!

TRAINER 

“Fall in love with taking care of your body” 

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 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.

TRAINER 

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

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!
