About Karen

I am a qualified Personal Trainer and Mat Pilates Instructor and successfully ran my own Personal Training business in the UK for 4 years before moving back to Austraila. I started Karen Plested Personal Training with a view and passion to helping others achieve their health and fitness goals and improve their sense of wellbeing and quality of life.

Health and fitness have always been a part of my life. I love being outdoors, and enjoy playing Tennis, Skiing, Running, Gym workouts, Pilates, Yoga, Cycling and walking our Labrador!! I am a very friendly, positive and motivated person who will help inspire you to achieve your fitness potential.
I completely understand that it isn’t easy to fit exercise into todays busy lifestyle, as work, family life and socialising are just some of the things that need to be juggled daily. Therefore I can help YOU find the time to fit exercise into your daily routine.
