Samantha - The Aussie


has been professionally involved in the fitness industry for 15 years. Australian born,
she now resides in the USA where she earned certifications through the International
Sports Science Association and National Exercise Trainers Association.  Sam enjoys the
challenges of keeping up with the latest training techniques and sharing them with others.
Her philosophy is the right kind of workouts will have people seeing results and coming
back for more. Her special interest lies in understanding nutritional physiology as it relates
to what we are eating and how we are feeling and performing. Sam’s goal is to help
others incorporate exercise & nutritional balance into their lifestyle so they feel, function
and perform optimally. Recently she decided to share her passion and desire to help as
many people as possible. As a result and along with her fiance' and business partner
Stephen, they opened up the “Down Under Sports and Fitness” facility located within the
VF Outlets where they promote a realistic and enthusiastic approach to fitness and
nutrition.  As a personal trainer, Sam believes a fitness professional’s responsibility is to
educate people and help them understand why they are having success or not when it
comes to exercise and nutrition. Their wellness can very much depend on it
