Carly is a Personal Trainer and Business Owner of Infinite Fitness so we asked her to share her study and Fitness journey with us….

This is Carly’s story….

“I truly am living my dream right now! Living in paradise and doing something I absolutely love. 

I grew up in Auckland until I was 12, then good old Dad thought it was a good idea to get out of the city to the bustling metropolis of Ngatea, where I completed high school.

I moved to Whitianga when I finished school and lived there for a couple of years doing reception and admin until I thought it was time for a change and moved back to Auckland, where my journey with health and fitness began.

I started at a recreation centre as a customer service representative and fell in love with training and fitness. I knew this is what I wanted to do and this is what I was meant to do.

As most Kiwi’s do, I moved across the ditch to try my luck in Australia. Moving to Townsville in tropical North Queensland, where my Mum lives, I landed a job at a brand new gym as a sales manager straight away and started a personal training course with Fitness Institute.

Everything fell into place during and afterwards and I attribute this to maintaining a positive attitude and outlook.

I lived in Townsville for nearly 2 years, when a fantastic opportunity came about to do what I love and travel the world!

I applied for a personal training job on board a cruise ship and got it! I flew to Canada where I started my adventure on board. I travelled though the east coast of Canada, Europe and the Caribbean.

And here I am now, back in what I call home and paradise – Whitianga.  What makes me different? I actually care about you and your individual goals, I’m realistic and most of all I am normal! – I’m not bikini model or body builder and I’d would be lying if I said I have never struggled with weight and body image issues – believe it or not I was that fat girl growing up who used to wag PE! I’m just a normal person who just loves to exercise and stay as healthy as can be. Check out more at Infinite Fitness.”
