About

Welcome to Candice Fit!

If you have a big dream, want to work with a trainer who’s always one step ahead, and you don’t shy away from someone nicknamed ‘The Smiling Assassin!’ Then this may just be the perfect holistic personal lifestyle training program for you.

 
When training with my guidance, you will be supported to meet your resistance head on, moving you past self-sabotage and in to the best version of yourself you can possibly be. With over a decade of experience working with people and their big goals, it is a pleasure to guide my clients through the path to self empowerment.

 
Accountability is the biggest issue people commonly face when initiating change, which is why my programs are designed to offer one on one personalized, and buddy training programs to work with your specific needs so you can finally reach your health and wellness goals.

 
When clients begin to transform and let go of habits that no longer serve them, not only does their physical fitness improve, they very soon find all other areas of their life start humming. Their mood improves and energy levels lift, creating a healthier, happier life.

 
If you’re serious about feeling your absolute best, you enjoy going for the big goals in life, and you’re not afraid to work hard, I will support you to be one-step-ahead of yourself, transforming self sabotage into self motivated, and frustrated into feeling great.

 
My biggest personal transformations both emotionally and physically have always come out the other side of my very earnest commitment to understanding myself and others in times of change, challenge and adversity.

 

It’s when I walk through the depths of my darkest moments that I find the most happiness and peace within myself on the other side. Through this I have healed my health, learned to understand my boundaries both personally and professionally. It has taught me compassion for both myself and others, and has drastically improved my relationship to my body and helped me gain a strong sense of myself in this world.

 
It is with this sensitivity that I serve others to finding the courage and strength to become attuned to their own inner world, as well as their physical and emotional needs and desires.

My clients dig deep and take responsibility for their health journey, happiness, and most of all, for showing up and finding ways to prosper in to their highest most expanded version of who they can be… with a soft heart and a strong, supple body!

 “It was your 30 day challenge that really kicked it off, I started it on April 5, then it took about another month to reach my “true weight”, which I had been trying to do (unsuccessfully) for a few years before I began personal training with you. Now I’m the fittest (and lightest) I’ve been in 8 years. And I still enjoy a glass of wine, the odd burger, and dessert from time to time.
You run a tight ship Candice, thanks so much. I am thrilled with my results!”

About Candice

Written by Trudy Johnson, Vim & Zest Director & long term client to Candice Fit.

As vibrant as Candice is on the outside, it’s the inside of this expert Personal and Lifestyle Trainer that really shines through.

Candice Briggs could well be the poster girl for Byron Bay, the sun-kissed locale where she lives and works… it is her mission in life to help others be the best possible version of themselves that really illuminates this petite, humble woman and makes her an outstanding trainer.

Straight-talking, committed and hard-working, most of her clients have been with her for years and it’s no surprise why. Driven by passion and purpose in her own life, Candice’s big-picture thinking is what attracts her clients and inspires them to give their very best.

For three years, her Bootcamp clients at Byron Bay Bootcamp affectionately called her ‘the smiling assassin’ – because she expertly chisels away at people’s resistance to bust them out of self-sabotage, all with that sweet smile we know so well.

The results-driven Personal Trainer is insightful, knows what makes clients tick and is always one step ahead of them. Candice proudly takes people well beyond the “I can’t do it point”.

She knows that when a client moves through the physical barriers, the mental and emotional resilience and strength builds as well. Her clients’ moods improve, they feel happy, purposeful and their lives transform.

Candice’s passion for physical fitness is matched by deep empathy and care for others. She understands firsthand what it means to not feel well and bouncy.

As a child, Candice suffered severe asthma, difficulty with breathing and numerous allergies. To help her get better, her Mum moved her to Byron Bay where she began swimming upon her doctor’s advice, then went on to become a competitive swimmer, an athlete and a dancer.

Becoming a Personal Trainer was a conscious choice – since she was very young Candice has always known what she wants to do – empower others and help them to feel good and be well.
