Chooky has been a training instructor for 25 years, originally training as a Les Mills instructor in New Zealand while she completed her Bachelor of Science (Statistics). Fitness has been in her blood from early on, successfully starting her career as an international gymnastics representative, who then went on to become a competitive gymnastics coach. Despite working in the clinical research quarter of pharmacovigilance for several years, Chooky's passion for teaching group fitness classes continues today and she now also gets a kick out of supporting thousands of 12WBT members on their own fitness journeys. Chooky has also starred in a multitude of fitness workouts for 12WBT, alongside Mish, and is a mum of two little elite-level gymnasts!
