Jody Robson
With a highly successful health and fitness career spanning over 25 years, Jody Robson is the innovative owner of BODYCENTRAL Lifestyle Centre.

The inspiration to create the unique business that is BC, came to Jody out of a desire to deliver an amazing collection of services that would positively affect the lives of her staff and clientele.

BC’s culture and approach to business is a direct reflection of Jody’s approach to her life and work;

• Motivated by a love of helping others
• A commitment to always going the extra mile
• Paying close attention to the little things

It is Jody’s intention that everyone who enters BC has the time of their life and leaves feeling empowered, happy and rejuvenated.

Jody is the proud and loving mum to Isabella and hopes one day to entice her into the family business!

Tony Robson
Tony is one of Perth’s health and fitness industry pioneers and brings over 25 years’ experience.

Tony is an astute businessman which, combined with his insightful approach to working with people, and his infectious sense of humor, has enabled him to successfully navigate this path.

Ali Gee Woolhouse
Yoga / Meditation Instructor
Keeping fit and maintaining her well being, both physically and mentally, has been a necessity for Ali throughout her life. She developed her foundation of focus and self-discipline through the 15 years of ballet training she did from the age of 3 years old.

In the late 90’s Ali’s relationship with yoga began (she has been a long term practitioner of Ashtanga Yoga) realizing that through this practice she is able to “come back to center”.

Through a willingness to learn as much as she could about this ancient practice Ali developed meditation skills. Over the years she has worked with a variety of meditation practices at local schools including The Perth Meditation Centre, Siddah Yoga and other smaller privately run groups.

Since October 2015, Ali has returned to a devoted yoga practice and in February 2016, began studies toward her 200 hours Teacher Training. “This learning has deepened my entire perspective about yoga and has supported my life in so many ways” says Ali.

Ali is so excited about sharing these benefits with BC’s clients. Ali says that “Meditation is a state that everyone can reach. I see my role as one of a guide to help others reach that state through a variety of simple and gentle methods.”

Paul Butterfield
Fitness Coach
Let us introduce Paul, one of BC’s highly skilled Fitness Professionals who brings considerable fitness industry experience along with an impressive array of credentials which include Level 2 certification in Kettlebells and Levels 1 & 2 Boxing for Fitness through the Ricky Hadden Academy.

With 8 years competitive fighting experience (Freestyle Kickboxing with WAKO, as part of the Northern Ireland Team), Paul is a 6-time National Kickboxing Champion of Ireland who has also competed at European and World Championship levels.
These achievements are built on a foundation of over 35 years committed martial arts training and expertise. …not that he is the type of bloke to brag about his accomplishments, rather he is the type of person who likes to go about his business with consistency and humility.

Paul’s lifelong passion for fitness and living a truly healthy life are qualities he loves to share with his clients and which bring an authenticity to the coaching he delivers. His philosophy towards training is “Train hard, train smart and have fun”.

With his passion also being his profession, Paul is stoked to be a part of BC’s Fitness Team, saying that “opportunities to be a part of such a committed and polished team working with like-minded people, don’t come along every day”.

Describing himself as a devoted husband and family man, Paul and his wife are excited about the thought of becoming parents in the not too distant future!

Calum O'Connel
Fitness Coach
Calum has always been destined for a long-term career in sports and fitness. From a very early age not only was he always active and industrious, he was and still is an avid soccer fan. So much so, that he applied a seriously focused attitude to make a go of becoming a professional soccer player travelling across Australia to Brisbane, as well as to Singapore, to forge his career.
At the age of 18, he secured a position with Brisbane Roars to get the exposure necessary to secure a professional contract. Calum has been willing to do whatever is necessary to make his dream a reality. Such determination and commitment are rare qualities, which is why we are so delighted that Calum has chosen to be a part of our dedicated Fitness Coaching team.
With a solid 9 years’ fitness industry experience, working with a variety of reputable, boutique fitness firms in both Perth and Sydney, it is not surprising that Calum is able to contribute significant coaching prowess to BC’s clients that not only cover several fitness modalities (i.e. small group fitness instructing, boxing and yoga) but also include facilitating sporting groups from a mentoring perspective.
Calum’s top three tips towards fitness are, firstly to remember that fitness is something to enjoy; it’s not a punishment. Secondly the importance of setting goals; recognize the sense of well being that is evoked when goals are achieved which are so important for creating mental well being. And third is balance; mix things up as regards to your exercise and include both high intensity and gentler fitness modalities.
Not one to sit on his laurels, Calum’s latest venture has been to develop his own brand of fitness wear called Fearless. Involved in all aspects of this venture from design to understanding the business of retail, Calum is enjoying the new challenges that this venture is presenting to him. Suffice it to say, we love his fearless attitude.
