Peninsula Aquatic Recreation Centre group exercise instructor Louise Craig has been recognised at the Aquatics Recreation Victoria Industry Awards.
A highly talented trainer and an outstanding advocate for fitness, Louise won Group Exercise Instructor of the Year.
Louise said she was “blown away” by the win, adding: “I love my job. I love seeing people enjoy their fitness journey.”
She is rapt to see clients develop a love of exercise and gain mental health and physical benefits as well as increased body confidence.
“I love see people who have never exercised in their life develop a passion for fitness and become someone who is coming week in, week out.”
In a testament to her passion and ability to motivate clients, Louise’s classes are always at 90 per cent capacity.
Peninsula Leisure CEO, Tim Gledhill, praised Louise for her commitment and dedication, as well as the energy she brings to classes.
“She doesn’t shy away from working hard herself within the class, motivating and inspiring her group to work hard and have some fun along the way. She is also a great leader, mentoring some of our other instructors and supporting them through training,” he said.
“Louise is a highly respected member of the PARC team. Her friendliness, support and kind nature is welcomed by all and we’re all extremely proud that she has been recognised by the industry as the very best.”
