Comprehensive First Aid
I’m Lakayla! Your new Personal Trainer here at Zenith! Zenith isn’t just a gym; this is a place where I pride myself to work alongside such wonderful and experienced Trainers who have the same aspirations and values as myself. Plus, they have some pretty amazing members!
My passion for sport and exercise has been around for as long as I can remember, I was taught the foundation of body awareness, conditioning, mentality and discipline at a very young age through my younger years as a gymnast. This then led onto team sports such as netball which I participated in for a number of years. Athletics was another passion of mine and you would always find me on the register for the 100m and 200m sprints every year, eventually providing me with the opportunity to be selected to represent in the MISSA athletics competition in my final year of school.
Fast forward to today my passion is bigger than ever, and with these skills and abilities I aim to give back, support, coach and help people boost their physical & mental health, confidence, well-being, self-worth, knowledge and values within themselves.
For me I always say there is no finish line. The process is forever. Always becoming, endlessly learning. The larger the vision, the larger the impact. So, come along for the ride and let’s ride your journey of success to become the healthiest version of yourself together!
