Hello I’m Teresa Hill.
After leaving the UK in 2001 to move to Australia with my husband Tony, I had the opportunity to change careers. For some time I had been a participant in the fitness arena, taking Pilates classes and even running a few marathons. Our move gave me the opportunity to look at re-inventing myself as a fitness instructor. This meant first becoming a recognised fitness leader with support of Guy and Terry at All Aerobics, now Genesis Hobart. The next step involved study in Sydney for my Pilates qualification with the Pilates Institute of Australasia. In time I gained recognition to levels 1, 2, 3 and 4. Along the way I attained UTAS level 3 Fitness Leader and Level 4 Personal trainer. I also gained my Level 1Yoga certification at Byron Bay Yoga.
Now my average day might involve teaching a spin class in the morning followed by a few personal training clients. I also might take a body calming flow yoga class or you might see me clutching a mat and heading across town to teach a workplace Pilates class. This can be a time and cost efficient way for office staff to fit in some functional exercise during a busy day.
Another area that I have found beneficial to both myself and those at the gym is the combination of yoga and Pilates that we have developed over several years. I teach these Yolates classes at Genesis several times time a week. The timetable for all Genesis classes can be found at www.genesisfitness.com.au/hobart
A friend told me about Lululemon when she heard that I was heading to Canada on a skiing holiday several years ago. My first purchases were at the Whistler ski resort store and I was even able to visit the very first Lululemon in Vancouver. Naturally I was excited when they first opened up on the mainland here in Australia and now Hobart. I am particularly pleased to be asked to be one of the first Lululemon ambassadors in Tasmania.
