I am so passionate about making the most of this one life we’ve been given and my way of sharing my enthusiasm is through FITNESS, HEALTH AND TRAINING. I believe we should all look after ourselves, treat our minds and bodies with respect and arm ourselves with the knowledge and tools to make the most of our ONELIFE. My services range from Fitness Training Sessions, First Aid, CPR Courses and Safer Driver Training. So please check out what’s available and let me guide you to become a better version of yourself. 

Why do I teach? I teach to motivate! I love seeing members work harder than they would if they were training by themselves. I love helping people and enjoy sharing the journey of them achieving their individual guided results.

I’ve been in the industry for over 20 years, working in many fitness clubs in the Newcastle area, as well as delving into professional training in schools and businesses. I also work for Athletics Australia and Touch NSW training and developing kids athletic and touch football skills and for Asthma Australia educating teachers, parents and kids on Asthma management.

People tell me it’s my personal and friendly approach that keeps them coming back, they don’t feel the intimidation often experienced in the health and fitness industry. So please don’t hesitate to contact me to get satisfying results in a down to earth environment.

Follow OneLife Consulting on:

I have never felt entirely comfortable going to a regular gym, and have always found them to be a bit intimidating. I didn’t have a lot of confidence when I started training with Jody, for fear of not being able to do something or getting it wrong. It didn’t take me long at all to realise that I didn’t need to worry anymore. Jody is the most encouraging and understanding trainer. She has always made me feel like I can do anything I put my mind to. She has always encouraged me to believe in myself, and have lots of positive thoughts. All the other people that train with Jody are lovely and so encouraging of each other. I love training with Jody, and I plan on continuing to do so for a long time.
