About Libby

I was PT for 7 years, where I specialised in training female beginners and pre/postnatal women. I made it to the top 5 'Up and Coming Personal Trainer' of the year in 2016 and went on to win the 'Small Group Trainer' of the year 2017 in the NZ Exercise Industry awards, which was a career highlight. I've worked in commercial gyms, had my own home studio and worked from a strength gym in Christchurch before moving into my full-time role as a tutor for Fit Futures Academy.

Getting into the gym changed my life but not until I was 19, I went from being unfit, binge drinking and smoking to falling in love with fitness, great food and bench press only powerlifting. I had my own journey with fitness and am passionate about teaching others the positive impacts of leading a healthy lifestyle. When I'm not training for powerlifting competitions, I enjoy spending time with my two kids, family, friends and love a good coffee.
