Jaime Martin

Jaime is a true Leader, Business and Family women.

After finishing my studies in naturopath and having my first child 3 weeks before my final exams, I slowly made a down ward spiral into PND, my anxiety was back from my teenage years with a vengeance! But being a battler I carried on silently, taking on a new business getting married and raising our first born! At a young age of 21. The years went on and I continued to go up and down with my emotions and mental health, still breast feeding and pregnant with our second, we decided to sell our business (cafe health food store and my clinic) a decision I made to move back to QLD for my husbands career and the right decision at the time for my family and for me to be the mother. (the ideal mother I had created in my mind) then our second was diagnosed with a condition known as hypotonia, low muscle tone which affects her physically and mental she was almost 2 years old and that same week, I’m finding out number 3 is on his way (and yes still breast feeding) that makes pretty much 6 years pregnant and breast feeding without a break! And my mental health was spirally finally seeking help to save myself and my family. I continued on with prescription medications. I had lost my way, I had become that ideal picture I had created for myself but at the price of my own happiness and health. I had lost my identity and my purpose. I then was prescribed joining a gym 26 years old 3 child thank goodness a loving husband that would hold me as I would shake and cry and dry reach for hours on end every night. I found a passion and with the help of my Drs over a period of time I came of my medications and with a lot of personal development and healers and practitioners I became a person with a burning flame inside again. I seek further education into the Fittness industry and I nervously sign a contract to enter the work force after 10years ! Where I began to find my identity again! After a few years and frustrated with the industry that is suppose to be about health and wellness it wasn’t what I thought it was and I decided to make a change and to change and help the lives of others on a bigger scale then the place I was currently working. And that was the beginning, to start my own boutique training and wellness center @funcfitness_goldcoast and then the true roller coast of family and business started but I am now physically fit and have some mental wits about me ! Then @lululemonausnz a community where by they believed in me and saw more then I did at the time in myself ! And with their guidance and education! I am me and I have fought dam hard to get here and I’m still a working progress like we are all. But I am

Aisa Rodgers

Moving to the Gold Coast all by myself at only 17 from Mackay, North Queensland, to follow my dreams of becoming a professional dancer, I have always been someone who isn’t afraid to make bold choices in order to get where I want to be.

After a year of studying dance and fitness full-time at Ikin Dance Australia, I achieved my childhood dream to become a professional dancer, and I gained my Certificate IV in Dance and Certificate III & IV in Fitness. In the two years that followed, I became a Dance Teacher and practised only my Dance Qualifications.

At the start of 2017, I couldn’t have found Func Fitness at a more appropriate time in my life. Tragedy had devastatingly struck my family, and I was the most unhealthy both physically and mentally that I had ever been before. I was vulnerable. I was broken. I was far from confident. I was lost. And from being someone who is so positive and smiles through anything, I definitely wasn’t myself.

The team at Func Fitness and the environment that they so very generously produced, was exactly what I needed! After starting to train only to escape life’s difficulties, I soon found my spark back as I kept training consistently, and surrounded myself with amazing energy and support. I soon realised that this spark was burning way too bright to only train to escape, and that I wanted to use my passion and love for health, fitness, and positivity to help others.
I was wanting to see other people achieve greatness and smash goals just as much as I wanted it for myself. I now have a fire within me that burns brighter than ever, and the desire to motivate, educate, better, and help others to find their own fire and reach their own goals is greater than ever.

Having been through so many difficult situations so young in life, I know what it takes to make the most out of every situation, and come out of it smiling and stronger than before.

I am now determined. I am now confident. I am now brave. I am now resilient. I am a motivator. I AM AISA RODGERS.
Having come from such a loving, appreciative and family orientated upbringing, and continuously being shown the importance of a supportive and encouraging surrounding- I know and understand the values that stand at Func Fitness and am so unbelievably excited to carry on these values myself.

“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anybody can start now and create a new ending.”

My newfound passion for health and fitness led me to gain my Cert 3&4 in fitness and my diploma in fitness qualifications. I have been fortunate to learn alongside some well regarded allied health professionals.

I am dedicated and passionate in helping all clients from transformations to higher risk and special clientele, and specialising in pre and post pregnancy training.
