3 Point Training
After completing a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at Brock University in 2015, Haley decided to travel and have a think about what career paths she wanted to pursue. After falling into the fitness industry in 2018, she has since completed her Cert 3/4 in Fitness and has been a coach for the last 4 years. During the pandemic she recognised the need for coaches who understand the complexities of mental health issues, so as to improve the services and coaching experiences people with mental health disorders might receive in the fitness industry. Since deciding to try and address this gap between fitness and psychology, she has ventured back to school in order to complete a Masters in Clinical Psychology at the University of Melbourne by 2023. It is Haley’s dream that she may be a practicing clinical psychologist to serve disadvantaged populations struggling with mental health disorders, as well as continuing to bridge the gap between psychological well-being and the fitness industry by providing her coaching services to the general population.
Favourite part of being a coach
Tell us about who you are and what you do as a coach?
Haley is a physique and lifestyle coach, bodybuilder, provisional psychologist, and mother to a beautiful little dachshund named Eddie!
As a coach, she specialises in physique, mindset and lifestyle development by bringing a person-centred and evidence based approach to her client/coach relationships. Inspired by a biopsychosocial framework for addressing client needs, Haley helps individuals pursue physique development in a way that enhances their overall well-being and adds value to their lives. In an age where portrayal of ‘fitness’ and ‘beauty’ standards are having an increasingly negative impact on individual mental health and well-being, it is Haley’s mission to educate and guide clients towards physique and lifestyle goals in an adaptive way that aligns clients with their personal values and reflects their own internal desires for change.
Haley will be prepping soon for a bodybuilding competition, so it won’t be long until her favourite food will be EVERYTHING. But for now she has an obsession with burgers from Grill’d, and can’t say no to a nice Italian style thin crust pizza from time to time (bodybuilders eat more than just chicken and rice!!).
When Kin inquired with me he was hoping to primarily increase strength and size of his chest after tearing his right pec. Receiving the green light from his physio, we began a structured program 2x per week together.
He did no other training outside of our sessions but was very active with surfing most weekends and also loves to push his limits. An optimal amount of volume with exercises that didn’t absolutely destroy him with loads was super important in negating risk to his right pec whilst giving him enough overall stimulus in order to grow in the limited time we had together each week. Since he likes to push himself it became clear that pedantic tracking of his volume increases for chest each week was necessary for making confident but slow increases whilst maintaining buy into the small, slow progressions.
Kin never missed a session and has always committed to tracking his nutrition. For him it was some days eating more, some days eating less but always aiming towards the calorie amount and protein intake assigned. He fell short of his protein target by 20-30g each day which just goes to show it’s not the 1%’s for perfection that make the difference but the overall consistency you put in long term.
