Kylie's passion is helping people improve their health through exercise and lifestyle changes. Improving health means different things to different people. For you, this could mean increasing your energy levels, helping you lose weight, preventing or managing health conditions, and increasing your physical ability.


Kylie enjoys working with people of all ages who want to prevent or manage chronic health conditions. She specialises in exercise and wellness programmes for diabetes, respiratory and cardiovascular related conditions, cancer recovery, chronic pain, autoimmune conditions and neurological disabilities.

Her Masters thesis examined the contributions of muscular strength, disease severity and physical activity on the aerobic capacity of people living with chronic respiratory disease. She has since published two research articles.

Kylie likes to practice what she preaches. In her spare time, you will find her in the gym, running or walking the tracks around Wellington, playing netball, drinking coffee or reading.

Kylie is currently on maternity leave until November 2019.
