HI, IM MELISSA GUNN
The young girl in the playground running, jumping, giving every form of physical activity a go, was me Melissa Gunn - founder of Gunn Health & Fitness, now a Mother of two beautiful, healthy children, who have inspired me to create a safe, fun, practical and family-friendly environment for Mums to be able to work out and challenge themselves but don't have to worry about having baby sitter to do so.
Becoming a personal trainer at the age of 18 was a second nature decision. I wanted to inspire others to achieve their personal goals and pursue their fitness dreams. However, I was still developing my philosophy towards health and fitness during this period. As a young girl, I experienced personal struggles with food and my body image. The competitive nature of the industry means I circulated through fads. After putting myself through a roller coaster of fitness and weight loss regimes and strict eating plans, I began to educate myself about what it means to be truly healthy.
My holistic approach to health and fitness is part of the Gunn Health & Fitness core values, 'Active Healthy Living'. This complete approach is the reason why I established Gunn Health & Fitness. Through my own experience with health and over ten years of experience in the fitness industry, I created an approach and philosophy that provides my clients with the necessary tools to achieve their fitness and weight loss goals. My sustainable approach inspires a balanced lifestyle that encourages an active body, a healthy mind and a happy life.
