Also, two new Trainers have joined our network!
Laurie is a Personal Trainer, developing programs for individuals, small groups and delivering the Move to Learn program. Laurie initially qualified in fitness training in Canada in the 1980’s where she worked with the elderly, people with a disability and facilitated group strength training classes.
In the 1990’s Laurie and her family moved to New Zealand and then on the East Coast of Australia before settling in Perth in 2005.
After working in an office management position for many years Laurie came to realise that her real passion was with assisting people with their health and fitness. In 2009 she requalified as a Personal Trainer and has had her own business training and motivating people of all ages and levels of fitness including clients with autism, managing the outcomes of a stroke or arthritis.
Laurie has taken a number of specialised courses including – Functional Ageing and Exercise, Pilates, Core Foundations, myofascial lines and other training courses including the Move to Learn program that will assist her varied clients.
When Laurie learned of the Move to Learn Program and the 10 Gems movements, she knew that they complemented all fitness programs, and should be the foundation of fitness programs for people of any age. By incorporating them with multi-component strength training, mobility, endurance and flexibility training, core and breathing exercises, the 10 Gems movements help to stimulate the brain, keep you cognitively sharp and help to move you from your early years and through life with confidence and independence.
Laurie is a Move to Learn Trainer in Perth WA and is working with children and the elderly with the MTL program and fitness. She believes fitness is for everyone and wants everyone to enjoy their training, have fun and feel the benefits.

Elise was born and raised in WA and has lived in Victoria and regional WA. She has one adult son.
Elise has recently qualified with the Certificates III and IV Fitness, so she could follow her Fitness passion and help individuals, and small groups to gain and maintain confidence while moving their bodies. (in the abilities of their bodies.)
Whilst studying and working full time, Elise also completed the training to become a Move to Learn Program Trainer as she saw the professional application of fitness principles complementing those of Move to Learn – using movement to integrate the primitive reflexes to promote and maintain effective brain function at any age.
Having broad experience in working with people from a range of backgrounds and stages of life through various roles in hospitality, administration, and human resources and managing her own journey to fitness Elise can relate to others wanting to make a positive impact on their own future selves.
Elise seeks to help empower others to make their desired changes, believing in our own inner wisdom, that we have all we need right now.
Both ladies will be supporting Winsome and the Move to Learn in WA team and we are excited about the contribution they can offer and the skills they bring to our network.
