Constantly active and forever chasing the next cornerstone of green smoothie creation, personal trainer Samantha writes on all things fitness to motivate you out the door and into your trainers, stat. Starting her career in modeling before realising that years of midnight Macca’s and Red Bull had begun to take their toll, Samantha has since been travelling down the road of health and wellness, learning, growing and sharing her knowledge along the way. First and foremost a personal trainer, her love for physical health through exercise has taken her from a corporate gym setting to creating her own business in personal and group training, always believing in the power of movement as a catalyst for positive lifestyle change. The ultimate goal is a life lived in absolute happiness and body loving appreciation – and as she says, sometimes that means getting a cheeseburger along the way!
