Meet Our Trainers

Simon Heffernan

Founder & Co-Owner

“I started Olympic Weightlifting in 1990, culminating in medals at the 1998 and 2006 Commonwealth Games. My career in health and fitness has given me the pleasure of working with people from all walks of life; Olympic athletes, fitness and bikini models, WAFL players, primary school students, people who are sick, who hate exercising…..the list is too long and broad to do it justice.”

Simon specialises in:

Anything and everything!
Rehabilitation – nothing gives me greater pleasure than seeing people progress from fear of hurting themselves to tackling numbers and exercises they never dreamed of.
Strength and conditioning
Pre-season training for serious athletes

Please note:  To train with Simon you will need to join a waiting list.

Simone Hudson

Co-Owner & Personal Trainer

“I am a former weightlifter with the Australian weightlifting team and have been to three world championships. I have done every sport out there and always been involved in fitness of some kind.
I have two teenagers and understand how hard getting the work/life balance is. “

Simone specialises in:

I have been working in the fitness industry for a while now and have become more and more drawn to looking after women and their health and mental wellbeing. I see so many women struggling with their time and being pulled in so many directions that they haven’t made time for themselves. Between looking after children or their own parents, and trying to work and run a home they are exhausted.  I want to help you prioritise yourself again.

On the other side I also love training people with weights. If you need to grow bigger and stronger then come and see me.
I have pre and post natal training and have also studied the effects of oestrogen in the female body, and nutrition for female fat loss.
