Co-owner/Head Coach/A12 Body Transformation Coach
My dad was a rice farmer with a hunch about the value of education. He sent me off to uni in the Big Smoke to be a PE teacher because it was the cheapest qualification. I was the skinniest aerobics instructor in Jakarta but quickly built myself up in size and reputation, eventually managing the largest gym in this city of nine million people (Fitness First at Plaza Semanggi). I also managed clubs in the Intercontinental and Hilton hotel chains. I have been teaching kettlebells since 2009 when I was certified by the IKFF in Bangkok, as well as qualifying as an instructor of TRX suspension training.
I moved to Hobart in 2010, where I became known as the ‘smiling assassin’.
I have taught a vast array of pre-choreographed classes, as well as Indonesian favourites like Tae Bo and Body Language, but prefer the variation and creativity of the freestyle classes I teach at Artgym where no two classes are the same.
I have more than twenty five years of experience as a personal trainer and pride myself on keeping workouts fresh and entertaining.
I have a veteran Master of Sport ranking in half snatch in kettlebell sport.
I am currently the only certified Amazing 12 coach in Tasmania. The Amazing 12 is the world’s Number One Body Transformation Program.
