My name is Tracey. My journey in the Health & Fitness Industry began after leaving the IT industry to raise our children.

I decided to use my time out of the work force to change career and study Health and Fitness which has always been a passion of mine I began my journey as a Fitness and Spin Instructor in a small gym whilst studying towards a Diploma of Sports Studies through Otago Univeristy and undertaking Pilates Mat instruction.

It was during this time InsideOut Fitness was born. My belief that a strong core is the key to any sport, hobby and general well health and therefore my company moto fitting: ‘Training you from the ‘Inside → Out’ After several years Personal Training and instructing Pilates, I discovered a passion for Postural Rehabilitation (Exercise Therapy) after helping a few friends recover after significant injuries.

It was from here I went on to further study Exercise Therapy I & II in order to work in the rehabilitation field. Postural Rehabilitation enables me to work with people who suffer conditions such as rounded shoulders, forward head posture, anterior/posterior pelvic tilts through to general achy sore shoulders, hips, knees etc.

My job is varied, challenging and extremely rewarding. Helping people to become pain free; return to a sport or job they love; or just empowering someone with knowledge to maintain their body drives and motivates me.
