Clare is the Owner of IntoYou Fitness, based in Sydney Australia. Clare began her career as an athlete in the Australian Sailing Team, where her development as a back health specialist began. Together with the team's physio, Clare developed a program for the Youth Squad, screening and correcting muscle imbalances to help prevent injury.
As a level 2 Strength and Conditioning Coach, she turned her attention and skills to pre- and post natal women, developing the IntoYou strength training system, and 6 Step Restore Your Core and Pelvic Floor program.
Clare's role is centred on delivering IntoYou's systems and the 6-step program to personal trainers state-wide. She is a mentor for the Australian Institute of Personal Trainers, guiding new trainers through their practical requirements right here at IntoYou. On an International level, Clare is a Power Plate Master Trainer.
Clare has two kids herself, and understands the difficulties women face, particularly keeping their pelvic floor and mental health intact. She thoroughly enjoys delivering accessible and intelligent training to women who otherwise find themselves cut off from support in fitness.
Clare is also responsible for IntoYou's annual oversea's trip. She says “these trips are overwhelming for average-jo to consider on their own. However with trust in our trainers, we can take you and your various abilities to any heights, simply by placing one foot in front of the other. The women who complete our trips are truly inspirational, having conquered their fears and physical limitations, and I take my lessons from them!”
