Kerri Griffiths


Kerri became a part of the Invigr8 family in early 2014. Soon after she competed in one of Inivgr8’s, 8 week summer body challenges, assisted by PT John Ward resulting in a 1st Place. This gave her a passion for what it was like to train hard and get results and then developed into a passion for health and fitness.

She then became somewhat of a gym junkie, and felt the desire to have a new challenge and see if she could push her mind and body to compete in a Fitness Competition. With the help of a professional body building coach she maintained a strict diet and trained 6 days a week solely at Invigr8 Gym. She competed in her first fitness competition in Townsville in April 2015. In her first effort she came away with three 3rd placings and 1st in Open Women’s Fitness. 2 weeks after the Townsville comp she then competed in Brisbane and came away with a 2nd place, 4th place and a 5th place.

Invigorate now has become Kerri’s second home, it is a place that she loves to train and push herself to grow and become a better athlete each week.

When Kerri isn't in the gym you will find her spending time with her hubby and beautiful family of 5. She enjoys anything to do with the outdoors - beach, wake boarding and travelling.

Kerri has been a big part of the Invigr8 strong community and is looking forward to meeting everyone and growing the community. She has some big exciting plans for the gym that we cannot wait to share with you all. We are so excited to watch it grow and progress into something bigger and better than it has ever been before. We sincerely hope that all of our amazing members are as excited as we are to come along for the ride….

Kirsty Mitchell

Personal Trainer

For over 8 years I have been involved in the health and fitness industry, which soon lead to embodying a healthy lifestyle. With years of self applied knowledge and experience of Bodybuilding competitions and prepping clients it lead me to a more holistic approach to training, nutrition and a conscious mindset. I truly believe that we must look after ourselves from the inside first, and the rest will follow along. I love the feeling of being apart of something larger than ourselves and watching everyone come together to support themselves and one another. From Personal sessions to group sessions, there is a place for everyone!
