GET TO KNOW KATIE TURNER
KATIE IN FITNESS
With a background in fitness and a strong passion for improving the physical and mental health of others, Katie opened her own Personal Training studio in Sydney’s CBD.
A steep learning curve in a competitive industry saw Katie hone her skills in, marketing and negotiation, communication and client satisfaction, as she navigated her way through commercial leases and corporate relationships, staff and customer management. Envisage became one of Sydney’s premiere fitness studios where Personal Trainers wanted to work and clients wanted to train.
Katie also built a successful outdoor group exercise and wellness business to service the Northern Suburbs of Sydney, creating flexible job opportunities for many other fitness professionals and a much needed community health program. When many floundered, her ability to pivot this business from face to face to online – several times, ensured it survived to be a vital lifeline of support for many during the Covid era. This is business in the real world and is where solution-focused Katie comes into her own.
Katie is a natural born leader with a strong belief in empowering others through education. These qualities are the secret of her success as a Lecturer and Presenter. A long list of high level sporting institutions have sought her skills in education and training, including, the NSW Institute of Sport, Australian College of Physical Education, FIAFitnation, as well as the Penrith Panthers, Manly Warringah Sea Eagles, Canterbury Bulldogs, Sydney Swans and GWS Giants.
KATIE IN RADIO
Confident to present through any medium, Katie also co-hosted The Fitness Show on Bondi Radio, using the airwaves to reduce noise, cut through the crap and present facts on the business of fitness. The show broadcasted live with guest fitness professionals talking job passion, business journeys and future trends.
Whilst she has a wealth of knowledge to share, Katie always seeks to give others an opportunity to “find their voice”. Co-founding a podcast and video recording studio known as The PodHub located in the heart of Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs, took Katie down a whole new path.
Lessons on the rabbit hole of digital technology, when to learn new skills and when to outsource and the importance of finding the right people for each task. The result was a production service that could cater to the seasoned podcaster or those new to the game, create unique content or rework existing social media content, for clients anywhere in the world.
The culmination of these two decades of business knowledge, real world experience and mentoring passion gave rise to Katie’s latest business venture, Katie Turner Media.
