Ginera Linton-Ozich – Level 3

I am a holistic movement practitioner and mum to two beautiful children. My mission is to inspire, educate and move people to more vital and healthier well being by providing a holistic approach.

With over 20 years of professional experience working in the health & fitness industry, I specialise in corrective movement, stress and lifestyle balance.

I utilise holistic diagnostic testing such as, functional blood chemistry analysis, stress hormonal profiles (adrenal fatigue), and food sensitivities, to personalise your health & wellness program.

My movement philosophy is based on strengthening the weak links in the body to ensure you have a strong stable platform for movement. This allows you to become stronger, fitter and leaner so you can get on with doing the activities you enjoy, without being burdened by reoccurring niggles or injury. I will challenge your perception of needing to work longer and harder by helping you to move more intelligently.

I have studied continuously throughout my career, returning from work in Europe to attain my BSc, majoring in Sport and Exercise Science. More recently I have undergone extensive training with the Kaizen Institute of Health in Australia to become a Kaizen Advanced Health Coach Level 3. Kaizen is the practice of continuous improvement.

I began my own journey of wellness after having my second child and realising I wasn’t feeling quite right. I initially thought I was showing signs of postnatal depression, so my strategy was to exercise more. Initially, having someone look after my children while I exercised did make me feel better. However, after years of feeling exhausted, now with two kids and back working, I felt like i was spiraling even further into a hole. I had long suspected I had food sensitivities and had been told I had adrenal dysfunction. Until I took the actual tests, I wasn’t really addressing the cause of why I was feeling exhausted for all those years. Seeing the results was powerful to me, it was the light bulb moment I needed in order to take purposeful action. With the support of two talented health coaches and instilling personalised health initiatives into my routine, I shifted from feeling exhausted all day every day regaining energy, health and happiness.. I was finally breaking the cycle of rushing, constantly juggling tasks and trying to be perfect in all things I did.

Please contact me if you are ready to make amazing changes to your movement, health and happiness. I am conveniently located in Auckland’s central business district.

Richard (Rich) Ellis – Level 3

Having worked in the exercise industry for 8 years now I have worked with a diverse but great bunch of people over that time.
As indicated I spend most with weight loss clients and those who suffer from fatigue. Clients have access to testing which allows them to see in black and white where their internal health is at and together we then make a plan to work on these for ultimate health and energy- giving people the freedom to do whatever they want.
“I look forward to meeting you and helping you with your health and fitness goals”

I am a registered provider of the SMEAEP programme which is an initiative set up between exercise New Zealand and IRD which allows businesses to engage me to provide corporate health programmes which are not liable for fringe benefit tax (49%) unlike gym memberships which do attract FBT, if provided for employees by companies.
Under health and safety law companies are required to manage stress in the work place and this programme is specifically designed to provide incentive for companies and the self-employed to take advantage of these kinds of programmes.

Corinne Austin – Level 2

Hey I’m Corinne! I’m the mother of two, wife of one, and the motivator of many!

The outdoors, physical activity, adventure, huffy-puffy, sweat, sport, and fun have ALWAYS been my passions. And so it serves my heart perfectly that I have been fortunate enough to have had a flourishing, successful, and fun-filled career in the fitness industry for the last 12 or so years. I change lives daily, and one of my greatest missions is to help people reconnect with the medicinal benefits of moving for both enjoyment and health.

A couple of years ago I was privileged to stumble across the remarkable yet humble Ange and Dave of Kaizen whose more holistic approach to health and fitness was to be the next big thing for me. Together, their knowledge of movement mechanics, gut issues, and hormonal health provided a couple of previously neglected yet crucial pieces to the puzzle of overall well-being. Powered by their wisdom, mentorship, and guidance, my unending desire to help everyone understand their individual potential for great health and freedom is now stronger than ever.

Through deep connections with my clients, I not only provide energy-boosting and life-giving movement and exercise sessions, but I also coach them into connecting with and understanding their own bodies, inside and out, and encourage them to strive for that place of absolute well-being and peace that they long for.

What’s possible if you let it be possible?

Jo Cordell-Cooper – Level 1

Hi I’m Jo Cordell-Cooper,  I run an award winning business Active Solutions and Health Network that specialises in women’s fitness, at various ages and stages.  Men are welcome too.   I’m a water based exercise specialist and this has enabled me to work with people who have quite long standing physical issues.  I work with both pre and post natal ladies, as well as offering high intensity aqua bootcamp, and personal training 1 on 1 and in small groups.  I am the go to girl for banged up bodies after pregnancy.

A several years back I started working with people on land (this is after all where we live) but I continued to attract some fairly complex bodies, and determined to offer the best possible service so studying to be a Kaizen Health Coach was essential to this outcome.  I offer adrenal dysfunction testing and food sensitivity testing and health coaching.
