Hi, I’m Natalie, but everybody calls me Nat.
I became interested in health and fitness in 2009 when I lost 50kg. From January 2009 to December of the same year, I went from 105kg down to 60kg.
In 2011, I realised I wanted to help others achieve what I had. So I decided to study for my cert 3 and 4, so I could become a personal trainer. I passed my final exam in July 2012 and immediately set up my business which I called NatFit. I met Lish and Teik through mutual friends. We became friends quickly and a couple of months later, she asked if I would work for Bodyfit and run their newly introduced 6am sessions.
January 2015 was when Bodyfit Bootcamp and NatFit merged and Lish, Chanteik and I became business partners. One of the best things that’s happened in my life.
My approach to our ladies is no nonsense, and tough love. I’m tough, but I care very much about everyone. I give 100% to the ladies and the business and expect it back.
My advice for anyone wanting to get fit and healthy is to work out why and let that be what drives you. Whether it’s avoiding a heart attack, keeping up with the kids or simply looking good in a bikini. To achieve any of that, you need to eat whole foods and exercise at least 3 days a week.
We are all very passionate about what we do and live for helping everyone achieve their goals.

Hi my names Lish, I’m 33, married with 2 kids Ebby (5) and Fletcher (2) and have a little dog Franklin and we live in Umina.
Like most 18 year olds I ate the usual rubbish, went out drinking, smoked and ate more rubbish as a consequence from having big weekends. Once I settled down, got married and had our first baby I wanted to set a good example for my little girl. Children’s nutrition had always been a passion of mine and I was now putting it into place with my daughter so decided to jump on the wagon and that’s when I also began training with Teik. I went from 27% bodyfat down to 15% and loved my new lifestyle so much I then had a desire to study fitness.
Once studying, Teik had an idea…. We could start a business running boot camps! Why not I thought? We gave it a shot started off small with 20 girls and here we are almost 3 years later with 2 locations, 250 girls, nutrition workshops and another awesome business partner Nat to join our team as well as 5 other trainers. The 3 of us have all been through the struggles and triumphs of Weightloss and now strive to help women through their journey.
Although Weightloss is a big part of Bodyfit we also are proud to say that with the help of our clients we have managed to create a fun, motivating, close knit community of women who are here to make this their lifestyle and are not just in it for a quick fix. We hope we can continue to help all our amazing girls and add more of you to our FitFam!

Hi, My name is Chanteik. I live with my partner of 11years and our two dogs. We own and operate a gym in Umina called Peak Physique which has been open since 2011.
In 2012 I started BodyFit Boot Camp with Lish and in 2015 we joined forces with Nat to create what is today BodyFit Boot Camp.
Growing up as a kid I was always involved in sports and loved trying everything. Once I hit high school though, I became very lazy and started to gain weight. At 17 I was working in retail and at my biggest. We sold clothes up to a size 14 or XL and I didn’t fit any of them. It wasn’t til then that I realised that I wasn’t healthy so I joined a gym. Around the same time I started going out to clubs and met Liam. I started caring more about how I looked because I wanted to fit into little dresses and feel good about myself when I went out.
It took me years of trial and error with my training and nutrition to figure out what worked best for me. I tried it all and now have a well rounded routine that keeps my Bodyfat under 16% all year round. I never had a training partner or anyone telling me what to do. I use to buy all the fitness magazines and do my own research online. It wasn’t until I did my fitness certificates that I really found my passion for wanting help others achieve their fitness goals.
Ive been living a healthy lifestyle, training and eating well, for 10 years and I haven’t always been perfect in that time. I’ve gone out and gotten drunk and I still do enjoy some chocolate or Indian food once a week because living a healthy lifestyle doesn’t have to be restrictive. Everything in moderation is ok. You have to find a good balance with exercise, family, friends, work and play. Planning and preparing is the key to success because a goal without a plan is just a wish.
My tip for anyone just starting out is be consistent with everything. Don’t do it for two weeks then stop for 3weeks. Don’t eat clean for 3 out of 7 days, eat clean 6.5 days out of 7days. Exercise at least 30mins a day and plan your meals.
I want to help you find a good balance in your life so you can achieve your goals successfully and enjoy training and eating well. Everyone has the opportunity to feel great about themselves but sometimes you need some extra help and guidance. Contact us today so we can give you the support you need in order to change your lifestyle!
