Something about Coach Mary

A healthy lifestyle is more than just a fit body, this is just the beginning. As your coach I will help you identify your goals and design a program that fits your life and show you ways to live a full life.

Coach Mary has been helping clients in the Ipswich area change the way they look and feel since moving from Canberra 2017. She has built a strong career in the sport, health and fitness industry spanning almost 3 decades.

My experiences in the sport, health  and fitness industry reach back to 1995, when I first accredited as a basketball coach and started coaching my first under 12 girls team. From there, picking up my Diploma of Recreation (Sports Studies - Coaching) and my Level 1 and 2 in basketball coaching in quick succession from Canberra Institute of Technology and the Australian Coaching Council, respectively.

While raising my school-aged daughter, I continued my own education through an Advanced Diploma of Sports Management with the Australian Business Academy and Bachelor of Education Studies (University of Canberra) with my major in physical education and minor in hospitality. In that time, I also gained my bronze medallion and lifeguard certificate with my Austswim (2003) along with Level 0 coaching certificates in hockey, Australian Rules Football, Rugby Union and soccer.

While I was completing my Bachelor, I did my fitness Certificate 3 in the evenings, which continued to certificate 4 and Diploma (2009) and working in the hospitality, entertainment and sport industries as service staff, sports coach, stagehand, lifeguard, fitness trainer and swimming teacher.

I boosted my knowledge from 2018 to 2021 by acquiring my Precision Nutrition Level 1 and 2 accreditation in quick succession, and now include a lot of the principles in my Whole Athlete Model - Based on Precision Nutrition deep health (environmental, physical mental, emotional, existential, social/ relational) - and completing the NPE Fast track program (a business program for fitness business owners).

I use my skills and knowledge in my almost 30-year career in the entertainment industry as a stagehand and loader to help myself and my colleagues maintain ability for heavy lifting and all kinds of awkward positions we put ourselves in.
