Karen Finlayson

Over 20 Years Experience as a Certified Coach: Personal Trainer, MovNat, Pilates, Barre; Certified Nutrition & Health

My interest in wellbeing began over 20 years. Then due to going through some significant personal challenges in my early 40’s, that saw serious weight gain and subsequent health & mobility issues, I was driven to educate myself more.  Developing a nutrition and exercise approach that transformed my own health and wellness.  I now passionately support other women around the world to achieve their health & wellness goals, so that they too feel like themselves again!

Over 30 Years Professional Experience: Corporate Management, Consultant, Executive and Wellness Coach

Starting with my Business Degree in Marketing, I entered the corporate arena in NZ, UK, and Australia, pivoting into my own Marketing Consultancy, and Executive Coaching business in the early ‘naughties’ while living in Sydney for 18 years and working with talented people around the globe. Upon returning to NZ to act as primary caregiver for my late father and then my mother, I suspended my career and my life to care for them.

Having experienced first hand the double whammy of aging as a professional woman, along with emotional exhaustion from my care duties, my health, fitness, and overall sense of self got lost.

Becoming a client of Karen’s literally changed my world, getting me back to feeling like myself again. I became a raving fan of her work with women over 40, joining forces and combining our skills to ensure that we support women of our life stages to age vibrantly!
