She'll unleash your Amazon

ROCKHAMPTON fitness enthusiasts are in for a real wake-up call today when they go head-to-head with celebrity trainer, Emazon.

The flame-haired trainer, of Biggest Loser and Australia’s Next Top Model fame, will put participants through an empowering weekend of mind and physical fitness training designed to release that inner Amazon.

And the 34-year-old’s motto will be “stand your ground”, when she holds workshops at AmbitionZ Health and Fitness.

Emazon’s style is fight training, but not for the sport of fighting.

“It’s about understanding self-defence and becoming street smart – standing your ground physically and mentally,” she said.

Emazon, aka Emma Hutton, said after a three-hour session with her, one person will notice major changes in their attitude towards life.

“I work a lot on self. Instead of teaching something new I remind them of what they forgot. Everyone has an Amazon inside; that’s why I can do it in three hours.”

Emazon, who isn’t as scary as she appears on television, will start today off with a motivational talk at 1pm to more than 75 people.

“You need to hear my background story first because I didn’t get into fitness for health and well-being,” she said yesterday.

“You have to have an understanding of my motivation and principles. I get them to think in a brighter light – it’s a real wake-up talk.”

Tomorrow she will take two groups of 30 through a three-hour course on standing your ground.

For the past six months, Emazon has travelled non-stop teaching her tactics to schools, women’s groups and fitness centres.

“I love it. I will never get sick of it because of the type of people we train with. I will keep going until I die.”

Rockhampton’s workshop will meet the 1000-people target Emazon has trained this year.

AmbitionZ Health and Fitness owners Ingrid Cornelis and Greg Praznak can’t wait to see how the course changes their clients’ attitudes in coming weeks.

Limited spaces are still available, so call the gym on 4921 4033 for more information.

Non-members are welcome.
