Jimmy Jensen

Hi everyone, let me begin by saying I am excited and proud to be a member of the team at Studio A and to be a part of the Sport and Exercise industry. I am currently finishing my Bachelor of Sport and Exercise Science at JCU in Cairns and prior to undertaking this I had a strong passion for achieving my personal goals for wellbeing, aesthetic purposes and physical performance to suit my active lifestyle.

In my time outside of Studio A and Uni, I enjoy motocross and enduro dirt bike riding, boxing, spending time in the gym and I’m also a rifleman in the Army Reserve. I believe in a functional approach to fitness myself, involving strength as well as cardiovascular and endurance fitness to form a solid foundation to then taper toward my specific task.

I am always learning further and researching the area of health and fitness and if you ever have a certain question or query that I don’t have an answer for, I am always happy to research and find a solution to help meet whatever goals you want to achieve. I look forward to working with you and using my experience to help you enjoy and progress in your fitness journey.

Sharon Day

I completed my formal fitness qualifications with Human Performance Centre on the Gold Coast in January 2018, and it is very exciting to be able to now train and continue to motivate Studio A clients in an area that I am so very passionate about.

I have always led an active healthy lifestyle with a focus on general overall fitness.  With my recent move to beautiful Cairns, this now gives me the opportunity to spend more time to also explore my hobbies.  I enjoy scuba diving, distant and trail running, cycling and also the need to feed my competitive side competing in triathlons and 1/2 Marathons. I have always found running to be a way of relaxing and getting in touch with yourself.

I also am involved with BJP Physical Culture, which I have been an instructor and competed personally at National level where I achieved National Champion, with last year winning state level, in the Over 50’s section.

I believe age is irrelevant to living a healthy and active lifestyle and feel fitness training should be fun but challenging, I very much look forward to working with you to help you achieve and maintain your fitness goals with the idea of always continuing to challenge yourself.

Briony Twittey

I’m Briony and I’m here to help move and motivate you towards your goals. Whether it be mastering one full push up or running 500m without stopping, I’ll be your cheerleader all the way. I’m often described as a torpedo of energy and hopefully that adds a little dynamite to your workouts.

I love being active, whether that’s a family walk or bike ride, my weekly game of netball or running the bootcamp equipment to and from the car. Throw it at me and I’ll give it a go. I hope to pass that love and enthusiasm onto you, our Studio A clients.

As a busy mother of 3 young children I understand the daily struggle to fit everything in. That’s why I will encourage you all the way to keep moving, keep active and aim to provide you with the best possible workout in whatever time has been allocated.

I have completed my Certificate III and IV in Fitness, have completed my Level 1 and Advanced Thump Boxing certification, and am a certified Level 1 TRX Suspension Instructor.

Ella Hargreaves

I am both excited and passionate about being a member of the team at Studio A and to be involved in the health and fitness industry as one of my many interests. I am currently finishing my Personal Training qualifications through Studio A, while studying a Nursing degree externally at CQUniversity. 

Helping people is my main focus and is something that has driven me to work as a personal trainer to assist others in reaching their full potential while leading a healthy and positive lifestyle. I believe that being healthy is a combination of your physical, social and mental wellbeing, all of which are equally as important. When I am not at Studio A, I find myself indulging in the outdoors; hiking, swimming and trail running. I also enjoy both kickboxing and Mixed Martial Arts as a result of my love for fitness and high intensity exercise. I am proud that the Studio A team offers a unique support network and encourages each person to work towards their goals and challenge themselves in every session.
