Steve Henderson

Founder & Personal Trainer

Steve has been in the training and fitness industry for over 25 years as a gym owner and personal trainer. He has a Cert 1V in Fitness and has owned & operated  Personal Training Studios for 13½ years in the Merewether/Adamstown area.

He was a member of the training staff for the victorious Newcastle Jets in 2007-2008 and he also played rugby league for the Cronulla Sharks and the St.George Dragons. Steve also has experience in fitness training for Rugby League, Rugby Union, and Netball teams.

After finishing his football career, Steve realised that he still wanted to keep fit and healthy but just not in a competitive nature. So he has set up training environments at his studio/gym and group running sessions that are non-intimidating, friendly and safe for all fitness levels.
