At Outlook for Life we teach women over the age of 40 how to banish "middle-age spread" and build a strong and lean body.
We use wholefood plant based nutrition, strength training and mindset to achieve amazing transformations.
Our absolute mission is to help you to lead your healthiest, happiest and longest life!
This is me on the left in my early fifties.
I was a marathon running nutritionist but as you can see middle-age spread was setting in fast.
This is also me on the right at 60. I am leaner, happier and healthier than I have ever been.
I have banished middle-aged spread without giving up wine and chocolate!
I eat lots of food, I choose to eat a wholefood plant based diet.
I train to be strong and powerful. I no longer thrash myself in the gym or do hours of cardio.
I have helped literally thousands of women over the age of 40 to regain their figures and self confidence.
Let me help you.
Ginny is originally from England.
She started out as an Equestrian Coach and moved to New Zealand in 1992.
“From my late teens onwards I suffered from a terrible lack of self esteem and had real body image problems that led me to bulimia and binge eating disorder."
When I was riding horses for a living I was reasonably fit but still really unhappy in my body.
I was always on a diet, I knew the calories of every food but I was still totally out of control and bingeing. At one point my disordered eating was so bad that I became clinically depressed and struggled to leave the house.
I was over 90kg that's 198 lbs or 14 stone. I have a small frame, it was not pretty!
Riding horses is tough on your body and two back surgeries put paid to my aspirations as a horse rider. During my post surgery rehabilitation I worked with a fantastic personal trainer and a nutrition coach and between them, they turned my life around, forever.
I really believed that I was beyond help.
When I came out the otherside I wanted to help other people turn their lives around too. I felt that if I could get better then anyone could.
And so Outlook for Life was born.
I became a Personal Trainer in 2001 and soon realised that I needed a Nutrition qualification too. I also became a Certified Health Coach.
I have been working in the industry ever since, my passion has been to put the exercise and food together to help people to live their best lives. At Outlook we have helped thousands of women to rediscover their health.
I have written for national magazines and been featured on the radio, I also have worked with big corporations on their wellness programs.
But, over time I realised that I wanted to focus on women over 40 who are struggling to get back in shape after kids, and through peri menopause, pre menopause and post menopause. And that is now the sole direction of our online programs.
At Outlook for Life our absolute mission is to help women over 40 to live their happiest, healthiest and longest lives, in a body that is lean, powerful and strong.
You will develop a deeper understanding of food and lifestyle choices that work best for you, improving your energy, health, and happiness.
Our goal is to leave you feeling inspired and motivated.
We will carefully guide you to make simple, small changes that over time will transform your life.

We promise that you have the power to get your health and fitness back on track!
At Outlook for Life we teach you how to take your power back. We teach a no nonsense, realistic approach to taking control of your food, exercise and mindset. We are passionate about helping you to live your best life.
You see, we get it. We have been frumpy and overweight. We know how it feels when none of your clothes fit. When you dress to cover up not to look good. When you are lethargic and unhappy and you no longer seem able to lose weight how ever hard you try. We know that what used to work just doesn't anymore and you jump from one failed diet to another. One failed exercise regime to another.
We know how it feels to be overwhelmed, frustrated and tired of failing. Tired of the ever growing spare tire around your waist. We know because we have been there and we are out the other side fitter, leaner and healthier in our 40's, 50's, 60's and 70's than we were in our 20's. And now it is our absolute mission to give you your power back too!Click Here To Discover How You Can Take Your First Steps To Getting Back On Track
