Kate Reid- Payne

Head Trainer

Don’t be intimidated if Kate hoists a KettleBell over her head with the effortless grace of a ballerina lifting a tiara. A trained dancer with more than two decades’ experience on stage and in-studio, Kate is a master of movement. But don’t think the taps, turns and twists have made her soft; she could drag a bear through the woods with one arm in a splint – such is the power of functional fitness.

Kate has been dancing, singing and writing music since she was a pipsqueak (some would call her a closet show-off), which means two things: she has an intimate working knowledge of movement, muscle and the human body; and her playlists get people pumped like the tyres in a peloton.

What gets Kate pumped more than anything is seeing her clients reach their fitness goals. She knows when to push people, when to hold back and when to offer a shoulder to lean on. A fitness trainer for over a decade, Kate’s got has an abundance of fitness credentials and is fulfilling her dream of running a boutique studio. A studio that’s based on the principles of care and community, strength and stamina, fun and fitness. When Kate’s not helping clients smash a PB, you’ll find her scoping out Melbourne’s live music and theatre scenes, or travelling to exotic places (where its warm!)

Helen Mollineax

Marketing /  Trainer

If you’ve got weight to shed, blame Helen! For years she worked in marketing and sales management roles, peddling consumer naughties like cakes, biscuits and carb-laden bread. Thankfully, she’s seen the light and is now on the other side of the health and wellness spectrum – helping members trim down, tone up and boost their strength and fitness.

Helen was a mad-keen long-distance runner from age 16 (hence she could get away with the odd culinary nasty), but all that changed when Kate introduced her to functional fitness four years ago. It sparked a light bulb moment and Helen has been addicted to Kate’s kind of training ever since. It was such an unshakeable addiction that it inspired Helen to change her life’s course, going back to school to become a fitness trainer.
Helen believes age is no barrier to exercise and that our bodies can move in amazing ways – no matter their vintage! 

When Helen’s not training members, she’s working behind the scenes brainstorming a new campaign for the Studio Technic community or giving her two teenage daughters a run for their money in the studio. She often outperforms them on the floor, but the girls would never tell Aunty Kate that.
