Kate Corbett

Manager, PT & Group Trainer

Affectionately known as The Smiling Assassin, I've been working in the fitness industry since 2008. I moved from Wollongong to the great city of Newcastle in 2022 and I’m loving it!

Dogs are the best, and I will probably pat your dog before I say hello to you (kidding... maybe!).

I love being around people, seeing others achieve great things and helping them on that journey. I love seeing the changes in people when they feel fit and strong.

It's was amazing being part of the set up process, right from the start, to now seeing people enjoying our space. Come in & check it out!

Hi I'm Zach! Fitness has had a profound impact on my life. I used to struggle with obesity but with some hard work I managed to lose 30kg and I'm now at a healthy weight.

This personal journey inspired me to want to help others on their fitness journey and to truly make a difference in people's lives.

In my free time I like to train Muay Thai. I'm still a beginner at it  but I'm loving it every second of it.

I’m Zali! I grew up around team sports which sprouted my passion for fitness this is when I started my own health & fitness journey in 2019 and quickly fell in love with the process. I then became apart of the industry in 2021.

I am a true believer in the power of little things over time and I’m always open to sharing my journey. I love being apart of every person’s journey, getting to watch people grow in confidence and become the best versions of themselves is so rewarding for me.

Group Trainer & Pilates Instructor

I've been in the industry since 2018, starting as a sports coach, moving into group fitness and Pilates in 2021, and I'm loving it!

I love running functional fitness classes involving multiple muscle chains to prevent injury & increase mobility. Fitness feels good!

If I'm not in the gym or Pilates studio you will find me soaking up some rays at the beach or studying my fashion design certificate!
