Kangatraining Founder Nicole Pascher is from Vienna, Austria. She is a former dancer, has been active in the fitness industry for over 15 years and is the mother of three beautiful children.
At the age of 12 she was the winner of the Austrian Show Dance Championship, and at the age of 17 she won the European Modern Dance Championship together with her dance partner Melanie Maar.
She continued her dance education in New York where she was a member of the Solstice Dance Company.
It was in New York where she broadened her professional skill set by successfully completing the ACE Fitness Instructor Certification, providing a solid foundation for her new career direction in fitness.
She was hired as Chief Trainer and Manager at Exude, New York, at that time the largest personal training company in North America.
Returning to Vienna she began teaching at various dance and fitness studios, and in 1998 founded her own fitness training company.
In 2008 she specialiced into pre,- and postnatal fitness and began developing her own unique workout program, now known as Kangatraining.
Sarah Tarrant is Country Leader for Australia and first learnt of Europe’s most popular postnatal workout whilst on holidays in Austria. She attended a class and was amazed at what she saw.
On her return home, she realised there was a gap in the market for such a program where mothers and babies could work out safely in a relaxed and fun environment.
Sarah then decided to return to Europe to complete her instructor qualifications at the Kangatraining School in Vienna that same year! Since then, she has launched Kangatraining in Australia through establishing her own classes in Melbourne and qualifying new Kangatraining instructors nationally. Sarah is also a qualified Babywearing Consultant through the “Die Trageschule” (babywearing school) in Dresden, Germany and has a fitness qualification in Pre & Postnatal exercise. In addition, Sarah’s husband Jamie, an Accredited Exercise Physiologist also assists in the delivery of the instructor programs.
Sarah comes from a Business and Finance background and after working for eight years in a corporate environment felt she was ready for a change! She has always enjoyed keeping active and leading a healthy lifestyle and knew that Kangatraining was an ideal fitness program for mums and bubs here in Australia.
