Yvonne’s story

In 2014, Yvonne had a hunch that there must be more women out there who wanted to try new things in the great outdoors and not be the “newbie”. Women who wanted to hike great trails but needed support with fitness or hiking skills so they could  feel confident to book and successfully complete a walking holiday.

When she couldn’t find what she was looking for, in terms of hiking skills and fitness for women over 50, like me, she started her own company.  Fast forward almost 8 years and her business, Women’s Fitness Adventures, and it’s programs, are changing women’s lives through walking and specifically, preparing women for hiking holidays.

She’s been featured several times on Channel 7’s Weekender program profiling the company’s hike training programs for women. Australia’s largest women’s monthly magazine, The Australian Women’s Weekly recognised Yvonne for her impact on influencing and encouraging women to walk and hike.

And in 2019 she was showcased as one of 20 Women of Influence in Queensland – for the impact her fitness training and hiking programs have on shaping the future direction of the health of women over 50.

Now her training programs which give women the skills, knowledge, and confidence to book and successfully complete multi day hiking adventures, are sought the world over.
