Coach Roz – Senior Instructor

Hi everyone! My name is Roz!
I’m so grateful to be part of the Studio-A team, it’s like a big family with a positive, happy, and supportive vibe. I can honestly say that I absolutely love what I do!

Becoming a Fitness Instructor, Personal Trainer, Pilates Instructor (to name a few) was the best decision I ever made 20+ years ago.

Inspiring and helping people achieve their goals, offering support and a fun environment brings so much happiness and fulfillment to my life. It is a career that has inspired me to learn and professionally progress.  I never thought I’d be a university student at my age, but here I am, doing what I love while studying.

I am currently completing a Bachelor of Exercise and Sports Science/Biomedical Science at CQU with the goal of becoming a Clinical Exercise Physiologist.  Whilst achieving this goal I’ve also enrolled in EMMETT therapy courses to expand my services to clients.

At the end of the day, I find happiness in helping others. I look forward to working with you all; lots of fun times ahead!
