Karen has always had a keen interest in fitness and sports and has been a personal trainer for almost 10 years. She has cert 3 & 4 in personal training, qualifications in thump boxing, kickboxing, powerflex and full body massage.
Karen says she has learnt so much about fitness, exercise and lifestyle over the years and has loved being able to teach others everything she has learned.
During her time in the industry, Karen has run outdoor and indoor bootcamps, worked in various gyms doing 1-on-1 and group PT sessions as well as running group fitness classes. Karen also ran community group fitness classes for Melton council and ran her own PT business for over 7 years.
Karen started pole dancing in 2015 for something new to try, she was really interested in the strength side of it and thought it would be great cross training. She instantly fell in love and took up aerial silks a few short terms later. She decided that aerials was definitely her thing.
Since starting pole and aerials, Karen has entered quite a few pole and aerial competitions and has taken out 1st place inter pole division and 1st place advanced aerials at Ignite heats 2017. 2nd place advanced aerials Ignite Finals 2017 and 1st place in doubles at EPSC 2018.
Karen took her love of aerials to the next level by completing the Circus Training Australia instructor qualifications in aerials, majoring in Aerial Silks/Tissu.
She taught Aerial Silks for many terms at a local studio and loved watching her students get stronger and more competent every week, and fostering their love of silks.
Karen is looking forward to helping students at En Pointe achieve their goals and share her love of aerials.
