OWNER & LEAD COACH
Empire’s Lead Coach Em is the fierce + rowdy, straight shooter that brought Empire to life back in 2016.
Em decided to become a Coach because she felt that people deserved to Feel Important + Safe on their Health + Well-being Journey – irrespective of Injury, Age + Training Experience.
As a Powerlifting + Strength Coach, she also passionate about functional movement, injury prevention + helping people find their groove in day-to-day life!
Em can often be found cleaning, hanging with her Son JJ + Hubby + Empire Owner Simon or …. coaching the occasional Class!
OWNER & SENIOR COACH
Empire’s Owner Simon is our resident Builder + Construction Guru, Coach of all things Heavy + a true Gentleman!
Simon (aka Bigdog) decided to become a Coach as after almost 20 years on the tools, he knows how taxing Trade work + Parent life can be.
Simon has found passion in helping others be strong for real life so they can live pain-free + comfortable – for life!
Under his rough exterior is the biggest, cheesiest grin + a brilliant mind overflowing with experience in a Gym environment but more importantly – life experience!
In Simon’s world, everything interlinks + should be considered when approaching any goal in life.
Bigdog can be found on the tools, listening to his 80s Playlist + teaching his son JJ how to build or destroy things around our new home 😂
Sometimes he makes a guest Coach spot just to keep the Crew on their toes!
Empire’s Junior Coach Bec is the underdog of our Team, a no-sh*t-sherlock + our Crew’s die-hard Cheer Squad (big role right!?)
Earning her stripes as a 4 year Empire Veteran, Becca aka Bec took the leap to become a Coach so that she could be a part of the change our Industry needs to experience!
A Powerlifting enthusiast, Bec aims to promote in essence, equality in a Gym environment. The days of sexism are over but not in the bra burning type of way.
Bec is a huge advocate for mental health, Mummas returning to exercise + empowering Humans to celebrate their individuality not only in the Gym, but in Life.
If you’re looking for Bec she is likely to be in Class with her incredible Hubby + Son getting her hands dirty, furiously studying to finish her qualifications, enjoying sunlight with her faves or whipping up some delicious concoction in the kitchen – don’t be mistaken though, Bec makes Home Maker Suzy look lazy.
Empire’s Operations Manager Kelly is a 5 year Empire Veteran, a fiercely loyal + kind Human + the glue that holds our Team together!
Kelly aka Killer lives + breathes the Empire Culture of People First + has been an integral part of setting up 2.0 as her eye is built for the finer details
Killer is the brains behind our operational functions + brings with her decades of life experience in numerous fields including Health + working with our Minis!
Kelly’s kindness + patience is unparalleled which you will find out for yourself when you meet her!
Killer can be found at Reception, on FB Marketplace or right in the thick of it laying flooring + talking shop with our amazing Tradies!
If she does go MIA though, she’ll be in Class with the Empire Crew getting her sweat on.
If you have a Membership, Partnership, Merchandise or General Referral / Invitation Enquiry – Kelly can be contacted via email.
EMPIRE OPERATIONS ASSISTANT
Empire’s Operations Assistant Charlie is our behind the scenes glue, who has a keen eye for all the trimmings that make Empire look + feel …. as it should 👌
Charlie aka Charles has been an integral part of Empire right from the beginning but being almost as illusive as a unicorn, if you blink you’ll miss her 🤣
Charlie is the master of behind the scenes, an Artist at heart Charlie is in her element when coordinating Empire Events like Masterclasses, The Empire Games or Scheduling Guest Coach Features with our Operations Manager Killer 👑
Charlie can often be found painting or drawing, hiding around corners, practicing her bow + arrow skills (she’s a deadly shot 🎯) or even at Reception as one of the friendly faces you see as you first walk through the door.
