Our Team

We are from everywhere. Like you. Some of us are foodies, some are adrenaline junkies. Most of us are parents. We like our fitness, but most of all, we love our life! We’re not purists. We like to have fun. We are real, a bit like you really.

Between us, we speak 9 languages. So we’re bound to understand what you want.

We like a challenge or two. So you may see us competing at various regional events. We may even convince you to join us. Trust us. We’re quite good at making you reach your impossible.

    Mum of two, passionate about sports and fitness, yet in the wrong body for my passion! Keeping fit requires huge amounts of effort and commitment but it’s become part of my life and I couldn’t do without it. I played rugby for a ladies team, enjoy running around with my boys and there’s nothing I like more than the satisfaction of achieving something I thought I couldn’t do.

    I have been in the fitness industry since 2002. I have experience training people from young athletes, people with injuries or wanting to lose weight to seniors as old as 95 wow! What an inspiration to still be active at this age! Everyone has their own capabilities, and with my years of experience I have learned to identify these capabilities for each individual and help them to realise their goals in an enjoyable and realistic manner.

  • Carolyn Onland
    Fitness Instructor

    I have had a varied and sporadic interest in fitness all my life, but the big change came in 2016. I decided, like many women do, to get fit and healthy for my wedding, I hired one of the Urban Energy Fitness Personal Trainers and the rest is (modern) history. To say I enjoyed the training sessions would be an understatement, seeing the progress I was making from session to session, I began to inspire myself with the results. I decided if I could get such incredible results, I wanted to inspire others to do the same. I began to qualify as a group fitness instructor and a personal trainer. When 2017 came around I had left my job and joined the Urban Energy Fitness team where it all started for me.
