  • Benny MawsonPersonal Trainer

    t’s Benny here! 👋 You may know me as the guy helping to steer the ship at Freedom Float Centre over the last 7 years or so. 🌊

It’s been a wild ride filled with trials and tribulations. After the last couple of years we are still here and looking to evolve our services that we bring to our amazing community! ☺️

    I have spent the last couple of years locked into some incredible certifications through Strong First : The School of Strength & TACFIT : The worlds smartest workout. 💪🏽

What an incredible journey it has been. These certifications are certainly ‘Earned’ not ‘Given’ and over countless hours & repetitions I have become certified in Strong First : Kettlebell Level 1 & 2, Bodyweight with Barbell next on the list and TACFIT’s Steel Mace Certification Lvl 1 and Clubbell Certification Lvl 1. 🏋🏽‍♂️

I am excited to now bring this to our community by creating a boutique training studio at the heart of the centre.

    My ambition is to offer Functional Conditioning small group classes, multi-week movement mastery courses, Mobility sessions incorporating Clubs, KB’s, Steel maces and bodyweight movements and may add in some boxing fitness classes for small groups also. 🙌🏽 These sessions are for everyone and geared toward training ‘smarter’ not necessarily ‘harder’ every session, my passion is long term health, wellness, mobility and performance!! (Don’t worry, you’ll still get a good workout) 🥵

    I will be available for limited 1:1 sessions and would really enjoy smaller group sessions 2,3 or 4 people so it could be a more affordable way to get the benefits of a private session where we can really work on overall improvement and track results. 📚

    If your on Instagram, please head over to @h2k_performance , say hi and DM me for any specific questions.

  • Sarah RotheramNaturopath (BHSc) and Kinesiologist

    Sarah is a qualified Naturopath (BHSc) and Kinesiologist, having a passion for maintaining health and complete wellbeing. Sarah has been working within the health industry since 2008 and is extremely passionate about nurturing and educating her clients through their healing journey.

    Naturopathic Medicine is based on the philosophy that disease can be prevented by supporting the body and promoting its ability to heal itself. Through the use of nutraceuticals, herbal medicines derived from nature and the implementation of a healthy diet and lifestyle practises, we are able to support our whole wellbeing. Naturopathy can help provide treatment for many health conditions including stress, fatigue, allergies, hormone imbalance, digestion, weight management, detoxification, anxiety, female reproductive health, fertility and preconception care, insomnia and other sleep disorders.

    Kinesiology involves accessing information from the subconscious to determine what your body needs to heal. Each muscle in our body is connected to our brain through the physical and nervous systems and by using gentle, non-invasive muscle testing techniques we can begin to identify the blockages and create steps to stop them from re-occurring. These blockages are often caused by emotional trauma, unresolved stress, physical injury or insufficient nutrition in our diet. Using Kinesiology, Sarah can assist you through these challenges, and identify and manage triggers to stop unhealthy habits. If you need assistance with stress, anxiety, negative thinking, belief systems, learning difficulties, sports performance and goal setting, contact Sarah to create healthy balance in the mind and physical body.

    Sarah’s thorough and efficient treatment plans, combined with her warm and caring nature, ensures that her clients have incredible outcomes, giving them the capability to reach their optimal health and wellbeing. Using a holistic model of care with her treatments, she finds and treats the cause of imbalance within the body, rather than treating the symptoms alone.

    Sarah brings a wealth of knowledge & expertise by combining a variety of modalities such as Naturopathic Medicine, Kinesiology, Neuro-Link (NIS), Reiki, Nutrition and Fitness Coaching. All of which effectively promote physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. She looks forward to sharing, educating and assisting you on your journey to wellness.

  • Claudia Perez-RuizRemedial Massage Therapist

    Upon completing her Psychology degree Claudia specialised in Infant Psychology and complimented that through studying Baby Massage Therapy. This gave her a vast knowledge and understanding childhood physical and mental health and the positive effects for both children and parents that massage creates. Promoting babies social, emotional, cognitive and physical development through nurturing touch, massage and love is Claudia’s speciality.

    Claudia loves helping others to heal and to reach their goals through the connection of mind, body and soul. She knows that all levels are connected to each other and when treating the body it is also important to treat the emotional body and the mind listening very carefully.

    Claudia believes in a holistic approach and treatment that not only focuses on muscle tension as a physical result of stress but also takes into account a client’s emotional and spiritual wellbeing.

    For Claudia, illness and stress affects not only one’s physical but also emotional, spiritual and mental wellbeing. Massage allows the body’s natural healing abilities to come forth and balance the entire body as a whole, being aware of any emotion, thoughts or experience we may feel during the treatment.

    ‘The greatest, most rewarding relationship you’ll experience is the one between your heart and your mind’

    Lauren has a passion for inspiring people to connect with their intuition so the messages between the heart and the mind are crystal clear. She believes wellness is a personal journey and enjoys discovering the path that best resonates with each individual. Lauren offers her wisdom through her Hawaiian style of massage using different modalities so that each session is tailored to individual desires.

    Training in the Noosa Hinterlands at Mette’s Institute was a highlight of Laurens personal journey, where she had some profound experiences that influenced her career change into the wellness industry. Lauren continued to study Kahuna Massage, Reiki, Yin Yoga and Law of Attraction and owned a Massage Sanctuary in Sydney.

    Each of her beautiful Hawaiian massages are designed with the intention for you to experience inner bliss by aligning the body, mind and spirit. Lauren’s heavenly touch nourishes the cells and softens any resistance so the divine energy within you can flow effortlessly.
    Lauren uses elements of:

    Kahuna Hawaiian Massage
    A therapeutic massage technique based on the teaching & practices of ancient Hawaiian Kahunas to elevate wellbeing. Perfect for eliminating energetic blocks so the divine energy can flow through you with ease. The flowing strokes from forearms, palms, and fingers are like being gently massaged by the ocean & the treatment is like a dance between two souls.

    Reiki and Energy Work
    This modality allows the divine intelligence of the cells to repair and optimise wellbeing through universal energy. Harmony and balance can be restored by working with the energetic field surrounding the body.A gentle yet highly effective approach to nourish cells and dissolve stress and ailments.

    Fascia Stretches
    Certain movements and stretches will open the fascia. Fascia is the body’s connective tissue that provides a framework that helps support and protects the whole body including individual muscle groups and organs. Keeping fascia healthy has such a beneficial impact on your overall health.

    Meditation & Visualisation
    Meditation techniques help quieten the mind and allow the opportunity to connect to your inner being. Visualisation is an incredible tool for projecting images to direct energy towards your desires. This allows the body to build beneficial neural pathways that have the ability to eliminate limiting beliefs. The beauty is your brain doesn’t know the difference between images that are real or made up. So the bigger your imagination and belief can be, the more limitless you become!

    Lauren invites you to come and experience the session for yourself as the magic lies in the process.

    Experience teaches not words.
    Lauren is known for her kindness and genuine love for people. Her intention of every treatment is to inspire and bring clarity to your own intuition. Each session she carries the ‘aloha spirit’ which means her focus is on bringing love and compassion to your soul. Lauren welcomes you into the magical space.
