Adele – Personal Trainer

Adele believes that Smile Fitness has enormous positive energy that can help Canberra and Australia to be a happier place. The news on the television has been relentlessly negative for years and years now! It is time for change! I believe that Smile Fitness can help anyone and everyone be fitter, healthier, teach them to enjoy and look forward to exercise. Retrain their palate to eat nutritiously. Be better groomed, stylishly dressed, mentally at peace, confident and enthusiastic about the day and life ahead. Smile Fitness represents, health, fun, hope, happiness, support, beauty, style, courage to try something new and be whatever you want to be…..and I lead by example!!!……proving that age is no barrier!!!

Let’s create a SMILE epidemic!!!

Adele’s Approach

Smile Fitness founder Adele Haussmann draws on a wealth of international experience across fields as diverse as Ballet, Musical Theatre, and Body building, along with qualifications in Personal Training, Pilates Matwork Instructor, Beauty Therapy and Professional Styling. Adele is also a qualified Jazz, Tap and Ballet teacher and ran her own Dance school overseas for 23 years. Adele will provide customised solutions for you that help you channel your energy into improving your overall well-being. She believes her ‘whole person’ wellness approach is more effective in transforming and enriching the lives of her clients. It tends to the needs of their Hearts, Minds and Bodies rather than focusing on just one health or fitness aspect. Having lived in Canberra for more than 14 years where she managed the Simply Gorgeous Health and Beauty Salon and Fitplus Training, Adele is admired in the community for her professionalism, presence, warmth, empathy, quality of service, and philanthropy. She has become a respected educator and trusted advisor and now through Smile Fitness aims to help people of all ages who are looking to not only improve their physical and emotional health, but also their functional movement thus preventing injuries—not just for the short-term, but for a lifetime. Having long seen the positive effect that grooming , spa and styling services have on physical, mental and emotional states—and the benefits that physical fitness and nutrition can have on skin and hair—Adele recognised the potential for an innovative fusion of all the services.
