Hunter Valley born and bred, Monique spent several years living in Bondi, being trained and mentored by Sydney’s most sought after women’s fitness experts at Bottoms Up! Fitness. Monique was so inspired by her time as a personal trainer there that she started Bottoms Up! Fitness Newcastle, to share her knowledge and passion for health, fitness and nutrition with her hometown.
Diagnosed with degenerative arthritis since childhood, Monique has successfully maintained a state of remission through regular exercise and optimal nutrition alone. She strongly believes that exercise and fuelling your body naturally (no processed nasties!) is vital in achieving a healthy and happy body and mind. When Monique’s not training clients or working on her own fitness, you’ll find her at the beach, planning her next active adventure or cheering on her beloved Newcastle Knights!
