I am Shalyn, founder and head coach of StreetFX Newcastle. I grew up playing sports and was privileged to compete at State and National levels for swimming, basketball and netball. Three knee surgeries would see me have to give up my love of sport at the ripe old age of 20. I just couldn’t imagine a life without physical activity, which was the driving force behind becoming a personal trainer. If I couldn’t play sport, I’d coach others to move or help them have longevity in their chosen physical activity. Seeing my members (affectionately known as my crew) hit milestones in their training is something I can’t really describe. I have the best job in the world. Actually helping people reach their goals, big or small, seeing the excitement and getting to share that moment them is actually indescribable. Humbling.
