Alive and well, too!
After a 3 month stint on a chook farm in Maldon, Victoria, it dawned on me that I was and always will be made for personal training. I mean, I think I smashed it being a chookmaster and all, but having my own personal training company does come with its perks. For example, I get to give myself titles such as Amanda, Personal Trainer & Chookmaster. That’s a good start.
You probably wouldn’t believe what I’ve been through if I told you, so let’s put that aside for now. I moved from Vancouver to its sister city, the beautiful and equally caffeinated Melbourne, Australia. And truth be told, there are in fact kangaroos everywhere and people do indeed say “g’day” – in the rural parts, anyway.
I’ve landed a great position as a self-employed personal trainer at Doherty’s City Gym, which has a very similar vibe to Vancouver’s Olympic Village but much more grungy. The specialty here is competitive body building and powerlifting, so that part is new to me. They do have an Olympic weightlifting platform and I can’t imagine myself training anywhere else in the city right now.
So here we go, opening up shop in the incredible Melbourne CBD. Come at me!!!
