MEET THE CREW


AMY CARLYON
My name is Amy Carlyon and I'm a Paediatric Nurse based in Palmerston North, New Zealand. Health and fitness is a big part of my life and I run my Instagram page "thehealthy.blonde" in a bid to inspire others to live healthy lives. For me health is about more than exercise, it is about listening to your body and providing it with the nutrients it needs to perform at its best. I believe in creating healthy habits that will last a lifetime and never restricting myself and I believe that your body is your most priceless possession. Above all, I believe that happiness is more important than anything else and happiness is what this lifestyle brings to me. So babes... Eat clean, stay fit and have a burger to stay sane.

JORDAN GERBES
My name is Jordan Gerbes (aka Jordan G Fit) and I’m a fitness YouTuber and bikini bodybuilding competitor. This year I decided to take my passion of training and nutrition to the stage and came away with the 3rd place trophy in the NZ Fitness Expo Cellucor Model Search, and also the 3rd place medal in the NZIFBB Open Bikini Class. I’m currently studying at Waikato University as well as working as a Group Fitness Instructor and Trainer at a local gym. While I love being on stage and training for my own goals, my true passion is in spreading positive messages about health and fitness to others. Whether you’re a powerlifter or a pram-walker, fitness is for everyone and we should never stop learning about new ways to let fitness enhance our lives. 

KAMA BONE
Hi, I am Kama, I am 29 (almost 30 ekkkk :P ) I am a mother to one beautiful energetic daughter, my drive in life is to set the best example for her. After being a very overweight and unhealthy person I made a promise to myself to make positive changes to my life. After losing 45kgs I am now full of energy and absolutely LOVE getting out in the bush for hikes (my happy place). I recently climbed The Pinnacles, boy was that an amazing experience. I enjoy hitting the gym in the evenings to destress from my busy day of working and running around with my daughters many after school actives. I love that being fit and healthy doesn’t mean cutting all the fun out of your life. I enjoy a cheeky wine here and there and you WILL catch me with a cheese burger in my hands every now and then, however everything is always in moderation. Life is here to enjoy xx

STEPH CARTER

Hey!! I’m Steph and I am 23, living in Qld Australia and am obsessed with all things health and fitness!! I am a Personal Trainer, Yoga Teacher, and am currently studying to be a health coach! Having gone through the waves of the fitness industry myself, I now strive to help women see themselves for the beautiful beings that they are, and through a holistic approach of nutrition and exercise, help them to honour their body and live the best life they can!! This is the same model I follow with my own life. Every day for me begins with yoga and meditation followed by a nourishing brekky then off to the gym to train clients before sneaking in a workout of my own, my faves being HIIT circuits and functional strength training. Active living is my life, however I will never follow a ‘diet’ and believe that balance truly is key!!! That’s why I love what Rapid Fitness Gear represents as they put health and wellbeing first!!

COURTNEY COSTA
Hey! My name is Courtney and I'm thrilled to be an ambassador for Rapid Fitness. I live and breath an active lifestyle and have done so from a very young age. Growing up this consisted of netball, tennis, dance, cross country running and touch rugby. These days I'm a personal trainer and spend my days motivating other people to lead a happy, healthy lifestyle through regular exercise and a balanced diet. I'm a real foodie and love home cooked meals packed with natural, nutrient rich ingredients. My sweet tooth also means I'm often in the kitchen experimenting with raw wholefood baking! I've always found an active body creates a healthy mind and therefore highly value physical activity. Although I love using the gym to weight train and stay strong I also enjoy the cardiovascular and relaxation benefits of walking outside. I live in active wear at least 6 days a week and highly value comfort and style. I love a brand that makes you look and feel good and for me Rapid Fitness delivers!

NATALIE LYDON
I am a 36 year old with 2 amazing daughters aged 11 and 17, I’m married to an NZ boxing coach, who runs his own boxing gym. I have been on my own journey over the last 9 years, where I have lost over 20kgs and kept it off, but more importantly I have learnt an amazing sense of self love, I believe this needs to be true within your soul and mind not just our bodies. I am currently working in the corporate world but will be starting studying this year to become a PT and then on to become a motivational coach, where I can share my own personal journey which will inspire others as I have been there in their shoes. I love ALL things fitness and have a huge passion for boxing. I have fought one corporate fight and am currently training for another.
My mantra is to be an inspiration which sparks motivation, I am an extremely determined person who loves to be challenged and thrives in personal growth, I do real and I do me, I am a woman on a mission to empower other women with my story!
