About Corby

Hi! I’m Corby and my passion comes from helping you achieve optimal health and happiness

 

I’m a mom, partner and personal trainer originally from British Columbia, Canada and now reside in Brisbane, Australia. Two of the most beautiful countries in the world I must say! If you live in Bardon, Paddington, Rosalie, Ashgrove, The Gap or surrounding areas, I would love a chance to work with you in person. I run a ladies training group every morning at 915am, that we affectionately named, Brissy Bodies. I also train men and women in groups, one on one and online. My national and international clients are supported through my app, Biome Health and Fitness. I chose the name Biome (bye-ohm) because I believe the microbiome plays a significant role in our health and happiness. Biome, also means community and I love supporting like-minded, men and women who believe consistency in movement and a balanced lifestyle are the key to a fulfilling life. No deprivation or crash diets here! My coaching approach, as you may be able to guess, is holistic and I will be here for you in every way. Look forward to becoming the healthiest and happiest you’ve ever been!

A bit about me…

I’ve been a health and fitness coach for over 12 years, obtaining my certification in Canada in 2008. Before I found my passion, I worked in the film industry until the unhealthy lifestyle caught up with me and I suffered a herniated disc (zero back pain now thanks to proper technique and strength conditioning). Do you suffer from back or any other chronic pain? I will help relieve your frustration and get you back to feeling 100%. I have helped 1000’s of clients completely eradicate or significantly reduce hip, neck, wrist, knee and back pain.

The reason my clients are so successful at reaching their goals is because we approach this as a relationship. Every relationship has an unspoken contract and ours is based on the fact that for you to become healthier, happier and sexier we BOTH need to show up and deliver our goods (fulfil our conditions).

My GOODS:

  1. Passion – if I did’t care about what you achieve or how you get there, than I wouldn’t be able to support you in the right way. I promise to motivate and support you in all the ways YOU need me to. Your health and happiness are OUR goals so I will guide you efficiently and safely.
  2. Knowledge – after 12 years as a trainer, I am still educating myself everyday and adding to my credentials. What you may not know is that to remain registered as a personal trainer, I am required to earn 20 CECs every 2 years, as well as maintain current first aid and CPR. This means that I am forever learning new, exciting and updated ways to help you reach your goals.
  3. Experience – 1000’s of my clients have transformed their lives physically and mentally. Each client comes with their own unique goals, health conditions, injuries and belief systems. My training style is a balance of science and psychology. My goal is for you to gain lean muscle while dropping fat without getting bored or feeling deprived. I like to train using all fuel systems so that your time is utilised in the best way possible. This keeps you mentally stimulated and your physique progressing. When needed, I work closely with general practitioners, specialists and family members so your best interests remain in the forefront.
  4. Belief in you and never settling for less than I know you can achieve – as an example, I had a lovely client (whom I became good friends with) lose 55kgs (122lbs) in a year and keep it off. Our mantra was ‘Believe’ and that’s what kept her eye on the prize. Whenever she felt she wouldn’t hit our next target, I reminded her of what she had already achieved and that I knew in my heart she could do it. Every check in proved me right and before you know it the scales went from 145kgs (319lbs) to 89.5kgs (197lbs). Knowing when not to push is key as well. Life happens and our priorities are a constant ebb and flow. My job is to push you when I know you can handle it and nurture you when you need me.
Your GOODS:
  1. Passion – burning desire to be a better person, physically and mentally. This also comes from being fed up with yourself for settling when you know you can be and do so much more.
  2. Dedication – “the sum of small efforts creates success”. A beautiful way to look at life and so true. Do the work every day, be consistent with your efforts and they will pay off 10 fold. Even when you fall off track (because you will), know that the sooner you get back, the sooner you will reap the rewards.
  3. Grit  this is the part of you that determines how far you will go. You will need the mental strength to give up what will feel good in the moment for what will give you the best results in the long run and essentially your best life. This is also the part of you that determines how hard you work in your sessions. Pushing yourself to get the next 5 reps or run for 1 more minute when you already feel exhausted, that takes true grit. Some people can do this on their own while some need a trainer to push them to put in that extra effort.
  4. Belief in yourself – you already know that I believe in you, so it’s time to start believing in yourself too! Even if it seems everything is against you, know in your heart that you are meant to be happy and healthy. Say to yourself throughout the day. ‘I am strong, healthy and have a great life’. Watch what that does for your self esteem and ultimately your achievements!
The most important part of our relationship, like any other, is compatibility. When our energies and needs match, magic happens! Are you ready to see what we can achieve together?

You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great
