FITNESS 

About

Monique Regan started Macro Fitness with the belief that exercise and fitness should be for all ages and all levels of fitness. She is a qualified personal trainer, group fitness instructor and a certified Barre Ballet instructor with a background of ballet and dance. With her Cert 3 and 4 in personal training and group fitness she has completed components of nutrition, anatomy and physiology. She also holds First Aid Cert and CPR. 

Exercise is wonderful for everyone to develop and maintain good strength, core, stamina, endurance, weight loss, flexibility and most importantly improving your stress and self-esteem. It increases endorphins and helps alleviate stress, anxiety and depression. It’s not just about appearance but most importantly health from within including good cardiovascular system, respiratory system, bone density and a healthy heart.

You only get one chance at life so why not make the most of it and live your life to the fullest potential. Monique has experienced her own fitness journey after the birth of her first child. Sports and fitness have always been apart of her life but due to a hard pregnancy she was on rest. She gained a lot of weight and knows the struggles of waking up each morning to look in the mirror and be disappointed.

Monique enjoys helping people reach their goals when they thought their goals were un-achievable. Everyone has to start from somewhere, everyone is unique, everyone has a battle in life. Exercise is for everyone, Some may need safe modifications, gentle encouragement and sometimes people just need a kick start and someone to show them the way – with no judgements!
