Pictured here - Corey, Tarryn and Madi after Friday barbell. A little something from Madi… Hi I’m Madi Ayling. I’ve lived in the Merimbula most of my life and gone to school locally. I love being active and love going to park run and the beach. I volunteer at the beach as a lifeguard and have assisted with the same wave program. This year I’ve recently graduated year 12. While studying, for the last year I’ve been working as a disability support worker. I love my job and being able to help people. Being able to assist clients in reaching their goals is a very rewarding. I’m so excited to be joining the TLF team !!
What do our clients say?
I have been absolutely amazed by this inspirational young woman. Tarryn is so dedicated to helping each and every one of her clients, she is constantly changing up her program's to keep us all interest and intrigued . This has been such a great way to make new friendships , we all keep each other motivated and have a great time along the way. Many laughs are had and at times you even forget that you're exercising. Tarryn makes every one feel welcome and I couldn't think of any reason not try her training session's, I am so thankful for Tarryn as I feel like I am apart of something big.

I'm amongst the oldest in the group sessions I've done with TLF - which are fantastic. Today I had my session (still the oldest) and absolutely loved it. Full on and intense, but short and sharp and leaves you feeling alive and ready to take on the day. Tarryn and her team are true professionals in every aspect of the business - great communication, very tuned in to each and every one in the group so you know what you can do but feel like pushing yourself just that little bit more. I've watched Tarryn take time with people who have had injuries or niggling problems - she knows her stuff and we know we are all in good hands. You are never too old to do this - and you will not regret it. Well worth every cent - and every little drop of sweat!
