About Me:
I am a Mum of three boys who has been lucky enough to spend the last 10 years seeing to their every need.

During that time I found my sanity at the gym. This soon progressed into a passion. As my youngest started school and I had more time on my hands I realised I could help others whilst using the passion and energy I have.

My focus is in showing people just what they can achieve with a positive mind and a bit of determination.

Movement is the key and functional movement combined with exercise is what will keep our bodies capable of moving through life freely and painlessly.

I like to combine this functional movement with metabolic conditioning to maximise results.

Cert III and IV Fitness

About Me:

Despite having always had a passion for playing sport and keeping fit, I have only recently looked to the fitness industry as a career.

I was caught in the corporate, work rut and without even realising it had become pretty unfit and had put on some weight. Through friends and family, I was introduced to some new styles of training, particularly high-intensity interval style training. It was amazing how much of an impact this had on my life, not just for my fitness and weight, but my happiness. I really had no idea of the day to day rut I was in. All of a sudden, I was happier at work, I had more energy, I felt better and had more of a drive to do things as opposed to just come home from work and watch TV.

I’ve experienced first hand what I think the majority of Australians go through in life. The Rut. Now I want to help other people experience how exercise and the right training can make a difference. I am a strong believe that exercise will not only help us move better and be fitter, but help us become happier, sleep better and have more energy.

Be it a specific goal you might have or to just train for general fitness so you can run around with the kids and enjoy everyday life more, I’d love to hear your story and help you hit your goals.

Qualifications
– Cert III & IV in Fitness
– Kettlebells Level 2 ‘Advanced Concepts in Kettlebell Training’
– Essentials & Advanced Suspension Training
– Bachelor Primary Education
– Community Coaching certificate

About Me:

I’m passionate about supporting people on their path to their best, reaching their goals and living an active lifestyle. Holistically improving your quality of life not just your physical appearance.

I began in the fitness industry in 2012 having a broad range of experience from training group fitness dance classes to working alongside physiotherapists rehabbing injuries.

I’m also a qualified teacher and have a passion for passing on the knowledge of a healthy active lifestyle to our next generation doing so when working in Education Queensland in 2016 and 2017 and coaching sporting teams. During this time I started my own personal training business in Gladstone working mainly in group fitness focusing on functional training, improving the lives of my clients through movement and mindset.

My favourite achievement of my business thus far was our active adventure, a 10 day trip to New Zealand incorporating exhilarating activities and fitness into a balanced holiday.

My love for the holistic approach to health has fuelled my move to the Sunshine Coast studying Nutrition and Dietetics at USC.

I’m always striving to improve and challenge myself in all aspects of life and I’d love to help you to do the same.

CSF Coach

Asha Lumsden


My greatest achievement in life is to mother my three amazing children who inspire me to try daily to make even the smallest of positive changes to this world in which we live.

Previously, I have worked in Aged and Disability Care, and next became a Senior Property Manager on the Gold Coast, both creating, and building a role in rentals. I am currently studying Sports and Exercise Science at USC, and I have had the privilege of being involved in developing the Cert III & IV at CSF.

As well as assisting and working alongside some of the directors of the company, I share their passion for creating a place where young people may come to learn and grow into incredible, self-aware, confident adults. These outcomes are attained through education, but also via the influences of mentors and contemporaries who share a common path, and offer lessons learned from their past experiences.

When I heard about the Teens Take Control Program, I knew this was the vehicle I had been searching for to fulfil my many life goals. I am excited to be involved in a program that helps young people to achieve their fitness and other physical goals, but also coaches them through real life scenarios that will help them to obtain, understand, and apply the core principles that lead to a fulfilling life.

These students will be equipped to enjoy a positive journey, reliant upon their decisions to choose quality environments, maintain their physical and mental health, and cultivate strong relationships. It is an honour to be a part of such multi-disciplinary, far-reaching, vital work in our community.
