Tamara Neho-Popata


Co-Owner, Head Trainer

Tamara has always been active in sports and fitness throughout her life.  After high school Tamara joined the Navy where she represented the NZ Defence force  in Netball, Volleyball, Rugby and Touch Rugby. After doing her ACL playing rugby, she reverted  to training at the 'globo gyms' and competed in bodybuilding. She started Crossfit in 2013 and fell in love with the methodology.

With over 15 years experience in strength training and over 10 years experience as a Personal Trainer, Tamara prides herself on providing world class training and coaching services. She is constantly pursuing new knowledge so she can provide her athletes with the highest quality training that evolves and moves with the times.

"I love the approach of using constantly varied, functional movements, performed at high intensity. It takes the boredom out of training and achieves brilliant results."
