Your Trainer - Sharon Young

Your Trainer - Sharon Young

My fitness career began in 1994. Over the years, I have held a variety of positions within the industry in Brisbane and Sydney, managed two Canberra gyms and worked for a leading international fitness industry supplier.

I currently sit on the Exercise Professionals Council with Fitness Australia.

In my past position on the Council for the Register of Exercise Professionals Australia (REPs), I was instrumental in the tailoring of the new Units of Competencies for the Group Exercise Leader (GEL) registration category in the SIS2010 Training Package for the Fitness Industry, the testing of the new Pre Activity Screening System and the growth of the Continuing Education Framework.
Along with this, I have been on Canberra’s Regional Industry Council for Fitness Australia and the Project Reference Group for the Lift for Life Project.

I am qualified and registered as an Advanced Exercise Professional with Fitness Australia, hold an Accredited Certificate in Nutrition and have studied Massage Therapy. I hold several other certifications such as Exercise for Rehabilitation, Boxing for Fitness, Pre and Post Natal Training, Advanced Resistance Training, Fitness Pilates Matwork and Reformer, YogaFit, Aqua Fitness, Children’s Group Fitness and Personal Training, Lift for Life and Sports First Aid.

Aside from running my studio, I teach classes at two local gyms, and have in the past taken movement classes at a local Pre School and worked with ACT Health under the Healthy Communities Initiative delivering Lift for Life classes to disadvantaged people at high risk of developing diabetes.

I am no nonsense, I am not here to give you into a bikini body in 12 weeks, I am not here to give you a Crossfit or Powerlifting session; I am here for Functional, Day to Day Strength and Fitness, General Weight Loss and Maintenance, Wellbeing and Total Body Wellness.

Watching people develop and transform, as their fitness goals are realised is a wonderful experience and I feel privileged that I am in a position to help.
