Simone Collins - Vegan Figure Competitor, Crossfit Athlete, Personal Trainer

Simone’s health and fitness journey began in 2010.  In an attempt to regain health and fitness, and recover from anxiety, stress, depression and being underweight, she started training at Doherty’s Gym City.  As Doherty’s is one of Australia’s most well-known ‘hardcore’ bodybuilding gyms and host to the biggest IFBB competitions in the country, it wasn’t long before she started attending and volunteering at the shows. Inspired by the dedication and hard work from all the athletes she watched, Simone made the commitment to train for and compete in her first show: 2013 FitX IFBB Australian Amateur Grand Prix. From there she was hooked, and has competed in 4 shows since.

Brayden Green - Vegan Crossfit Athlete

Brayden’s health and fitness journey began in 2009. He trialed for his school’s 1st XV Rugby team but did not make the cut. He was told he had potential but lacked size and would be bowled over up against the bigger teams. Hearing this, he joined the 2nd XV Rugby team and also joined up at a gym. Brayden’s size as well as his overall fitness really kicked off and half way through the season he was called in to the 1st XV. In 2010, he made starting line up for the team. Ever since this event he maintained his gym sessions and absolutely loved the environment.
