HONNI ROONEY

Honni has always loved everything to do with movement and health.  From early on, she was involved in sport as an athlete and more recently as a coach, trainer and movement analyst.  Her passion and hard work led her to become an Australian Champion Springboard Diver at age 16.  With the Olympics in sight everything was going according to plan until a crippling back injury stopped her in her tracks.  With the help of some amazing practitioners, the use of Pilates, functional movement practices and meditation, Honni rehabilitated herself both physically and mentally.  She learned how incredible the body is at healing itself and became passionate about helping others to experience the same.

Having been in the fitness industry since 2000, finding creative, fun ways to train maximally and functionally is the foundation from which Honni builds upon. She uses a broad range of training modalities, catering specifically for each client’s needs and capabilities, ensuring they benefit greatly from each and every session.
