The Aussie chick from Sydney, Down Under, whose energy is enough to light up a city. With 17 years of athletic and fitness history including Sprinting, Hurdles, Cross Country Running, Soccer, Netball, Dance, Gymnastics, Kickboxing, Touch Football, Road Bike Riding.
“Basically I think I have tried every sport under the sun, even indoor cricket … didn’t say I liked it but I tried it!”
Trudy has been a personal trainer and group exercise instructor for over 5 years, and just “LOVES every second of it.” Originally using her Commerce Degree in a career as a marketing manager for IT companies such as IBM, Optus and Commander – she saw the light and became a qualified personal trainer full time. Her specialties include rehabilitation, injury prevention, back care, special populations and of course fat loss. In Trudy’s words: “you can’t compare changing someone’s life to writing a marketing plan – the reward and satisfaction of completely re-shaping a client’s body and seeing their whole level of confidence and psyche change, is exactly why I do this”
Trudy is also an instructor of Spinning (indoor cycle), Boxing, Circuit, Boot Camp, Basic Training Style and Toning/Barbell classes, where she motivates and energizes a whole room full of participants and whips them into shape making it fun for all fitness levels.
Combining two passions – Fitness and Business – Trudy became the owner/director of a women’s only gym in Sydney’s southern beach district which takes the fear out of fitness for women who are new to the fitness world.
Her nicknames include “Madame Lash” & “The Technique Nazi”… or simply “The Trudestar”
Trudy’s youngest clients were the under 11’s State Netball (North’s Netball) Team through to her oldest client 81 years, who started out on a walking frame with numerous painful joints but was walking around her home and 50 meters to her letterbox without her frame and off her pain medication within two months of beginning training with Trudy.
Trudy has now followed her stunt man husband to Los Angeles, California, and can’t understand “why the cheese is orange over here?”
