Tina has been a trainer for over 8 years now, starting in group fitness and then moving into personal training. Qualified both in her native Poland and here in her adopted home in Australia, she specialises in strength and hypertrophy training, and is a two-time IFBB Bodybuilding Elite competitor. She is motivated to get more females into the gym to train, debunking the myth that lifting weights 'will make you look like a man', showing them how, in fact, it can help them achieve a more feminine physique and greater confidence in their body.
Tina's training philosophy is to have fun, stay strong, feel sexy in your own body. She loves helping people improve their health, feel better about themselves and make lasting changes to their life.
