Crystal comes from a long background in competitive sports & remains undefeated in Karate and Muay Thai Kickboxing. Her passion for martial arts & sports in general, lead her to give up her corporate career to follow a very successful personal training & kickboxing journey. Crystal spends her days running Brisbane Fitness Empire & Empire Fight Club.

When did you decide that it was time to step away from the normal 9-5 working day, to take on running your own business?

  • In 2007 I was competing in Karate for fun & enjoyed the fighting side of things. I couldn’t wait to get to training every afternoon. After winning multiple fights, I decided to move on from karate to kickboxing, where I knew I had found my home. I was telling a lady at work about my training and she said to me the only time she sees me truly happy, was when I spoke about my training and told me I was doing the wrong job. That was the day I decided I was going to do what I wanted to do! I have never looked back.

Why did you decide to become a Personal Trainer & take on the task of running your own gym?

There is nothing more rewarding then having your clients reach their goals and being super excited. I cannot count the amount of times I’ve had a client burst into tears. They finally reached a goal or have lost an amazing amount of centimeters. When a fighter wins their fight, the feeling is indescribable. You feel so proud for them and for yourself. All that blood, sweat & tears has paid off. You know that win is going to change that person’s life.

There is never a dull moment training clients. The days are filled with so much fun and amazing achievements.

I love meeting new clients and hearing their stories and helping them set new health and fitness goals. I can’t wait to introduce them to the “family” which Brisbane Fitness Empire has become for every member. We all had to start somewhere and we are all still on our journeys. I’m very proud of my clients as they are very welcoming to new comers and are happy to share their journeys to encourage each other. New clients are exciting as I know with my training and their dedication, we can smash their goals!
