A Bit About Me

I have been involved in the fitness industry for over 20 years. In the times that I wasn't working in the industry, I was upskilling myself through study and continued education.

I believe it is possible to achieve your fitness goals, no matter what your limitations are. It won't necessarily be easy, but it will be worth it.

I know how hard it can be, I have lived that struggle myself. What I want for my clients is to provide a supportive training environment, where they can enjoy putting time into themselves and achieving their goals, while challenging their own beliefs about themselves and their abilities.

I am most passionate about providing a social network, through exercise, for people isolated in our rural remote area.

Gini certified as a Group Fitness Instructor for the Fitness Corporation in 1999. As a requirement to teach Group Fitness classes in our facilities, instructors had to be certified through our qualification. The course was run over 13 weeks and involved 2 hours theory and 2 hours practical work per week. At the end of this course was a theory and practical exam - which Gini passed with flying colours. In a class of 12 students, she was one of the 2 I employed to instruct in our clubs. An outstanding instructor full of energy and enthusiasm. She taught for me right up until she left Nelson.

It is my pleasure to provide a reference for Gini Tangira. Gini has been teaching classes at the Blackwater PCYC since 25th March 2019. She teaches 5 classes a week, with professionalism and an energetic attitude. Gini is extremely reliable and displays a high rate of safety for herself and participants. She is always seeking ongoing education to fulfill the needs of the community and to add to her qualification skill set. She has gone to great lengths to build her own program and design her own unique class, which attracts a large number of members. She has put in considerable effort towards marketing classes, which has been of benefit to the PCYC.

Gini is an amazing trainer 🙌🏻. I always walked (or crawled 😅) away from each session feeling like I had accomplished something great!! She would always accommodate for our ability level or if we had any old injuries that would prevent us doing certain exercises. The sessions were always fun and upbeat. Highly recommend her awesome classes!!
