Jen Rice

Jen is  a certified Personal Trainer, Pilates mat instructor, mum of two kids and lover of movement indoor and outdoors. Her workouts with clients are a fusion of functional training, weight training, Pilates and cardio to improve one's overall fitness and well-being.

She began as a Personal Training in Vancouver, British Columbia in 2004. The first client she worked with she knew this was the work I was meant to do. Her strong interest in the biomechanics of the body helps her to create programs that make a positive difference in people's lives. In her 20's she competed in triathlons and came to do Ironman New Zealand in 2007. 

Now, with 2 kids and a busy schedule (like all of us right?) she has learned the key to creating a balanced and healthy lifestyle. Fitness and movement is her passion, she's pedantic about good form, and continues to learn so she can share her knowledge and empower others to find this balance for themselves.

Gem Fruean


Gemma’s life-long passion for exercise, health and wellbeing is evident in her career trajectory to date. An avid player of netball and touch early on, Gemma participated in and coached various into her 20’s.

Passionate about helping others look and feel their best; Gemma started her career in the make-up industry working for K.S.S.M and M.A.C. After eight years she decided to expand her knowledge base and by extension, further enable others to feel their best, by training to become a certified Wholistic Integrative Nutrition Health Coach in 2016.

The final string to Gemma’s bow was to become a personal trainer through the New Zealand Institute of Sport. Gemma enjoys encouraging and empowering people to make small, yet significant changes to improve their lives and thrive.

A mother of two beautiful girls, Gemma is also really passionate about self-care, especially for mothers and women.

Gemma looks forward to meeting you all and working along-side Jen, who incidentally was her trainer around ten years ago!
