Personal Trainer: Natasha Mateljan
Specialising in Weight Loss, General Health and Fitness, Exercise and Mental Health
Natasha has over 10 years industry experience and holds a Certificate in Fitness Instruction from Auckland Institute of Technology. This encompasses Fitness Foundations, Prescription of Exercise and Fitness Assessment & Counselling. Natasha has worked with pre and post natal clients and most recently clients working their way through depression.
My philosophy to exercising is more than just dropping down a dress or pants size. I have found through personal experience exercise can shape your mental wellbeing as much as your physical wellbeing. I take a well rounded approach to clients health that incorporates exercise, nutrition and mental wellbeing. I have also worked with pre and post natal clients to help them develop fitness and strength throughout pregnancy and after baby. I have also worked with with post natal depression and anxiety based clients to help them overcome some of their inner struggles, as it can be said "exercise is a great form of a natural anti-depressant". Having had post natal depression twice myself, I am very aware of what struggles we as women can go through after having a baby. I am greatful for all the support I was given and myself used exercise as a recovery tool. I wish to be able to help others struggling with depression and am certainly taking more of an interest in training depression/anxiety based clients.
