Louise

Louise

Assistant Manager / Sales / Reception Super Star

Hi, I’m Louise

A little bit about me:

I’m a strong believer that you are only as good as the people you associate with. I began working in a gym June 2019 because I figured if I surrounded myself with healthy people putting in the effort it would motivate and inspire me to be better. Three months later I did my first ever running event, the City 2 Surf and four months after that a half marathon – with lots of PT encouragement from the best boss, Di, who patiently ran with me. Now my goal is to do a full marathon in September 2020!

My Favourite Quote:

“Curiosity killed the cat, but satisfaction brought it back again.”

Fun Facts

  • I’m a big fan of Vipassana Meditation. I’ve done two 10-day courses in Blackheath where you practice noble silence, meditate for 12 hours per day and have no access to electronics or books.
  • I worked at a 2-dollar shop for 7 years while I was at school and studying. This is where I developed a deep love for organising and tidying, which I took with me into administration.
  • I was in a shitty pyramid scheme for 2 years where I met my fiancé, everything happens for a reason.
Denise

Denise Jarvie

Reception Super Star / Human Potential Coach & Mentor

Hi I’m Denise

Four years ago, I weighed my heaviest at 115 kilos. At 163 cm, I resembled a beach ball with arms and legs and was in physical pain. Deciding I had to do something, I found a six-week health and fitness challenge and thus began a journey back wellness. In the process, I fell back in love with training. I had forgotten how lifting weights helped both my mental and physical health.

When I was growing up, I never knew how to deal with emotions in a healthy, balanced way. So, I pushed them down and moved on – until they manifested into anxiety and depression. Around thirty, I was motivated to change careers and look for deeper answers. This began twenty years of study into meditation, metaphysics, psychology and counselling.

Now I find myself bringing my two loves together – The Mind Body connection. My aim is to bring meditation to athletes and show them how to discover an infinite inner power of flow that not only helps goals to be achieved quicker in the gym, but in all areas of life.

I am honoured to be part of the 707 tribe – to be the smiley face on reception that inspires people to become the best version of themselves. If I can do it, anyone can!

My Favourite Quote:

“Athletes eat and train, they don’t diet and exercise”.

“A mistake that happens more than once, is a decision.”

“Be the change you want to see in the world.”

Fun Facts

  • I was a hairdresser and make-up artist for fifteen years
  • I am a Meditation Teacher and Massage Therapist
  • I have written three Oracle Card Decks and a Tarot deck
  • I am a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer
  • At 53 I had my ¾ sleeve Tattoo done – never too old!
  • I have a Tonkinese cat called Dave
  • My music tastes are diverse, but I am a Metal Head at heart.
