Samantha Redlich

Hi there, Sam here.

I am so glad that you have chosen to work with me or are considering working with me to optimise your health and wellbeing.

After having instructed Bodypump at Fernwood in Melton, and having worked with various gyms in the Bacchus Marsh and Melton areas, I have started my own gym in Daylesford through purchasing Strong, a strength training program for older adults. Building on that I have expanded and with the formation of Xistance am now able to offer fitness services to everyone.

I find it a joy to exercise and am passionate about helping people feel better about themselves through moving the body, eating well and creating a healthy inner/outer life.  Having suffered from anxiety and depression for a large part of my life, along side counselling, I found the most useful remedy was to exercise to nourish my mind and body!

I believe that exercise is a wonderful form of therapy that can make you feel strong all over, enhance your self-esteem and increase your drive and sense of well being.

My motto is: "Live your life joyfully and you will find that all around you benefit and your joy will be infectious!"
