About Rachel Marks
My start in life was not typical for a personal trainer. Physical Education at school was something I disliked and wasn't a fan of team sports at all. I actually thought I had two left feet and struggled with anything requiring co-ordination. I remember complaining as a child when my father took me on long walks and I struggled with exercise.
In my 20's and early 30's I was a bit haphazard with going to the gym and even though I was slim, I wasn't particularly fit. When I developed a chronic health problem I embarked on a fitness regime, as I had become very weak from my illness and discovered a new passion for exercise. The change in my body strength and fitness made such a great impact that I decided to change career and become a personal trainer.
Becoming a Personal Trainer
Since qualifying as a personal trainer, I became passionate about helping people improve their fitness, energy and health. Changing my own lifestyle has made an astounding difference to the way I looked and felt. I have a strong understanding of how and why people struggle to exercise and I am committed to help people make positive changes to their lives.
After 15 years of working as a personal trainer and a NLP practitioner in the fitness industry I feel just as passionate as ever about helping people create the health and lifestyle they deserve. My approach is unique in NZ, as I believe all elements of lifestyle need to be refined for maximal results. That's why I have such an amazing success rate with my clients and I even mentor other personal trainers for improved skills.
