MEET KIRBY

OWNER

After the birth of our third child Harper, I experienced postnatal depression and was seeking an outlet to feel like the “old me”… we lived interstate – disconnected from family and close friends…

I always loved exercise and how it honestly makes you feel better… so I started at the local gym, but the experience wasn’t thrilling and I often wondered why it felt so disconnecting… it wasn’t until we returned from living interstate that I knew it was time to start my own fitness business. I couldn’t get a start within the fitness industry as I had 3 young children and wasn’t able to work the hours they required.

I knew that I could provide a service for women to come and feel like their old self again, and become comfortable and confident within their own skin.

I started classes in the local scout hall and quickly outgrew the venue… In November of 2019 I was able to relocate to our new premises in Cardiff and our business continues to grow daily with ladies reaching out to achieve their very own success stories of living their best life.

We would be honoured if you joined us on creating the largest movement in Lake Macquarie for women in fitness.

MEET ASHLEY

COACH

Mum of Kobie my beautiful 3yr old! Everything I do, everything I want in life revolves around him and his future!

I became a PT when I was a young single mum and felt completely isolated at home, all day feeling alone, withdrawn, and completely lost. I wanted to join a gym but no one catered for my child, 5 months later I woke up and went boom. I am going to change that! I am going to change how I feel and I am going to help other mums change that too. 

Fast forward 3 years and I have my Cert lll and my Cert IV in Health & Fitness. I am working hard to expand my knowledge and my qualifications to become the best for you.

My mission is to help mums become the strongest, the best and the most passionate they can! I want to help you raise your children with a positive view, raise them seeing you exercise and eat healthy to bring a whole new outlook on life.

My passion is group fitness. Get in smash out a 30 minute workout while your child sees you and you can see them, & leave feeling on top of the world.

My favourite saying – live in the moment you have no idea what’s around the corner dream big, love bigger.

MEET HELEN

COACH

I have always had a passion for helping others and a love for health and fitness. After a rewarding 10 years living and working in Japan as a corporate language facilitator and then translator, I moved to Lake Macquarie with my partner for a change of pace and to raise our beautiful young family. Upon re-entering the workforce some years later, although busy, healthy and happy, there existed a niggling void on a deeply personal level, a sense that there was something else out there for me.

It wasn’t until 2018 when I decided to return to university as a mature age student to complete a degree in Exercise Sport Science that my light began to fully shine again. The depth of knowledge I have gained through my studies and the opportunity to apply that knowledge in a practical way to helping others on their journey is truly rewarding. My light shines even brighter now that I have found my place within the amazing community at Kirby Bree Fitness and have the incredible opportunity to work along side Kirby and Ash.

As the winner of the Executive Dean’s Award for Academic Excellence in Exercise Sport Science for 3 consecutive years, qualifications in Personal Training and Group Fitness and a goal to complete a Masters Degree in Clinical Exercise Physiology, I am privileged to be able to put my knowledge into action and offer my service and support to all the amazing members of our wonderful community and aid as many people as possible in adding value to their lives through realizing their health and fitness goals.
