Hello! I'm Georgia - Exercise Scientist, Black Belt, Athlete, Podcaster and Trauma Informed Kickboxing Facilitator.

I hate running, I suck at ball sports, but I LOVE martial arts and how powerful it makes me feel. So I started karate when I was 12. I earned my black belt when I was 20. When I was 22 I started Muay Thai - Thai Kickboxing and I've had 5 professional fights.

My love of combat sports lead me to complete a bachelors degree in exercise science. I've been working in the fitness industry for the past 7 years and I have 4 years experience as a clinical exercise scientist at Kieser.

For years I walked around with a secret. I hated my body.

I started dieting when I was 18. I wasn't overweight but I wanted to have the "perfect" body. By the time I was 21 I wasn't just training for fun anymore. I was training to make myself as small as possible. I developed a condition known as amenorrhoea - my body was under so much stress that it could no longer support a monthly bleed.

Even though I was severely underweight and always exhausted I still thought I was too fat. I struggled to make my fighting weight of 54kg and blamed myself for being too lazy. Every time I would weigh in, then fight, then gain a couple of kgs I would be disgusted with myself.

After my 5th fight, I knew something had to change. I nearly went to hospital from the sauna dehydration protocol I used the day before the fight. During the fight I could feel how drained my body was from being stripped of love for so long.

I took some time off competing and started focusing on enjoying movement again. Hitting pads for the fun of it and learning new skills like Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

I had already started practicing process focused instead of outcome focused kickboxing when I met psychologist Liam Harkins. He suggested to me that I could help women with PTSD by teaching them kickboxing. I discovered a pile of research proving that Martial Arts facilitate healing.

Drawing upon this research, my experience and collaborating with psychologists, I developed The Fight Back Project. After reconnecting to my body I am passionate about teaching other women to connect to their bodies. I believe that every woman should learn to fight - especially those that are afraid of their bodies and the world.

By learning to fight, we learn to be fully present in our bodies and our lives.

I have always known that the path to learning to fight is the path to empowerment and enlightenment. When a psychologist suggested to me that I could help women with PTSD by teaching them kickboxing I discovered a pile of research proving that my childhood intuition was correct.

Drawing upon this research, my experience and collaborating with psychologists, I developed The Fight Back Project. I am passionate about connecting women that have suffered trauma to their bodies through kickboxing.I believe that every woman should learn to fight - especially those that are afraid of their bodies and the world.

I have a love/hate relationship with outdoor rock climbing which I do to push me to the edge of my Window of Tolerance - personal growth happens when you're super scared - right?!

I love walking my dog out in nature, exploring Australia and the World, playing the saxophone and baking. Hit me up for healthy dessert recipes - I have a major sweet tooth but I know my mind and body work best when they're well nourished.
