Congratulations to Kristy Hurrett who competed in the challanging UQ Ipswich Park2Park 5km running race! Kristy blitzed her competitors to place 2nd overall! Keep up the good work Kristy!

Lauren Ellis competed in the San Fransisco Marathon yesterday. Fantastic effort by Lauren to undertake such a gruelling task. We look forward to hearing the results in the coming days.

Melanie Gillespie represented Australia yesterday in the world long distance triathlon championships in Spain. The coaching director of the southbank Triathalon club came 7th overall in her age category, what a fantastic achievement. Mel was the fastest swimmer, 4th fastest in the ride and 21st in the run. Massive congratulations to Mel!

Fitnance Students Shine at the Olympics

Well done to Mel Schlanger who is bringing home gold after a win in the woman's 4x100m freestyle relay! Schlanger showed great poise to anchor the team home and swim the fastest time for Australia.

Kendrick Monk clocked his fasted time this year to qualify 7th for the semi finals of the Men's 200m freestyle. The semi finals is the furthest Monk has made it in the Olympics, so this was a fantastic effort. Unfortunately Monk qualified 13th fastest overall, therefore will not be competing in the final. Great effort Kendrick!

Congratulations to Ryan Napoleon who made it to the final for the men's 400m freestyle. Ryan came 8th in the final after huge swims in the heat and semi finals. Well done Ryan!

Prac student - Mei Yin Lo

My name is Mei Yin Lo and most people call me Vicky. I am an international student from Hong Kong and have been in Australia for three years. I am a third year student studying Bachelor of Exercise and Sport Science at University of Queensland. I enjoy being active and I used to play gymnastics during high school. Other than gymnastics, dancing, badminton and yoga are also my favorite sports. Currently I am doing practical here in Fitnance to gain experience training and prescribing exercise programs to people before moving onto clinical areas of exercise physiology. I believe that exercising can help people to gain fitness and help create a positive attitude towards life. I look forward to meeting everyone as well as training everyone.

Prac student- Mark Wan

Hi everyone, my name is Mark Wan and currently I’m in my third year of Human Movements studies at the University of Queensland. My goal is to be an Accredited Exercise Physiologist after I graduate from university. I have just started practicum at Fitnance, I am here to not only complete my hours training people to gain training experience but also here to help people to achieve their fitness goals. Outside of study, I mainly play soccer (Chelsea FC supporter) but I am always willing to try out different sports. I look forward to seeing everyone and hope to have a chance to help you through your exercise program!
