Facilitator Profile

Play Fit Stay Fit was brought to life in 2019 when Sam, a mum of 2, saw that children needed more than just a sport – We needed something that was not like everything else… We needed something high-energy and very different that would keep children moving, keep them engaged and allow them to MAKE NOISE and express themselves, without being judged.

Play Fit Stay Fit focuses on a program created not just as a workout geared towards children, but a MOVEMENT that aims to change the concept of health and fitness for today’s youth.

5.0 rating
Sam has been an integral part of the West Pymble Public School sport program in 2020. She has a great rapport with the students and they absolutely love her Generation Pound workouts each week. It's fantastic to see the students working on their physical fitness in a fun environment. You can tell Sam enjoys motivating the students to work hard and the staff have seen the positive well-being benefits of her program.
