Rachel Unthank

First Impression

Location: Mudgeeraba

Hi, I’m Rachel and I am a passionate Exercise Physiology student and Pilates instructor, as well as part of the First Impression team. I completed my Bachelor of Business at Bond University and after working across a variety of industries, decided to pursue a more active and fulfilling career. I began my Pilates instructor training in 2014 and have taught across a variety of areas since. I am currently completing my degree in Clinical Exercise Physiology and have been fortunate enough to have worked with and been mentored by some of the best minds in the industry. Being able to combine my business background and love of all things movement and health is incredibly rewarding, and I love seeing clients surprise themselves with their progress, challenging what they believe they are physically capable of and achieving overall freedom in their movement.

I am one of a few people on the planet that hates Nutella

Karen Main

Practice Manager & First Impression

Location: Mudgeeraba

Hi, I’m Karen, and I’m ready to welcome you to StudioXphys! 🙋

The first thing I do, even before my feet hit the ground, each morning is turn the corners of my mouth up.

I then aim to wear that beaming smile all day long. 😁

During my career, I’ve enjoyed a diverse range of roles, across several industries and always with a focus on people and service.

From hospitality to retail, to administration, recruitment, and concierge, my passion for helping people enjoy each day and lead lives they love includes more than 15 years as a Life and Leadership coach.

Fun Fact:
I like to have 1 new challenge I do for fun each year and in recent years I’ve learned Calligraphy, basket weaving & mala bead necklace making and this year I’ve started Oz Tag for the first time.
