My name’s Melanie Quinn but I’m better known as Evil Barbee! I’m a fully qualified Personal Trainer and have worked at The Gap Health and Racquet for over 7 years.

I believe I put the ‘personal’ into Personal Training! I love to laugh and I believe if I can make your training fun and engaging, you’ll keep doing it! Even when working in a small group, your program can be individualised. I make modifications quickly and easily to suit my clients and my sessions are always different so you won’t get bored. You will always feel challenged, satisfied and energised. That’s what gets you results!

A sense of community and belonging is something very close to my heart, so I’m always inspired by my clients and their stories. For me, there’s no better feeling than knowing I have motivated someone to get off that couch, start moving to make a change and take control of their lives. It’s an honour to watch someone’s confidence and self-esteem grow as they improve and get closer to their goals.

I love that I’ve now reached a point in my life where I don’t want to be anybody else! I think it comes with age and the realisation that I actually like the person I’ve become and absolutely love what I get to do everyday!

Come and join me to become the person you want to be!

After becoming a Personal Trainer at GHRC over 15 years ago, I discovered that fitness is the fountain of youth. Since then I’ve had two children and I appreciate the challenges that life can throw at you.

I enjoy guiding my clients to achieve a higher quality of living through exercise. I’ll help you create a happier, healthier, more energetic version of you. You’ll improve your mind set and emotional space, all whilst having fun! I look forward to the opportunity to open people’s mind to their capabilities, challenging them in a safe and supportive environment.

“I’ll help you create a happier, healthier, more energetic version of you.”

Cedric Edlin #YOUTHfit Coach

Qualifications

  • Cert III in Health and Fitness
  • Currently Studying for Certificate IV in Health and Fitness

Specialisations

  • Athleticism – for a healthier mind and body

  • Program Writing – for specific needs and wants

  • Maintenance and muscle growth

Why come and train with me?
It was love at first sight. For the past 4 years of training and conditioning at this gym, I myself have truly learnt what it means to be determined. For me, this means coming to the gym 6 days a week and struggling to cope with the thought of upcoming rest days. The very meaning of this word is having a passion, and for me as your #YOUTHfit Coach I would love to spark that passion in you to see the best thing, Progress. 

I’ll help prepare you to have fun at the gym, make long lasting memories at the gym, and of course, train smarter at the gym. I’m a dedicated person that loves to see progress in individuals; hence if you’re looking for a healthier mind and body I believe I can support you with the correct training program specific for what you want. 

Join me on this journey to strive for success. Are you with me? 

“Just like bodybuilding, failure is also a necessary experience for growth in our own lives, for if we’re never tested to our limits, how will we know how strong we really are? How will we ever grow?”
