FITNESS LEADERS

Naomi Webb

Ko Tihirau te Maunga

Ko Whangaparaoa te Awa

Ko Te Whanau-a-Kauaetangohia te Hapū

Ko Te Whanau-a-Apanui, Ngati Porou, Ngapuhi me Ngati Hamoa oku iwi.

 

Kia ora, I am Naomi Webb.

I am 32 years old and currently living in Opotiki Te Whakatohea.

I have three beautiful children - two boys and a girl and one amazing husband.

I am an office manager at a primary school here in Opotiki, but I am looking at studying to become a professional trainer in Health and Fitness in the near future.

This is a passion that entered my life two years ago and I am loving every bit of becoming a better and fitter me.

I am currently a member of the Fit Wahine Aotearoa NZ and I will be running my 4th 6-week challenge alongside my cousin Kara Waititi-Kurei.

Health and fitness is something that I love doing and also sharing it with my whanau, friends and those who enjoy it just as much as I do makes this journey for me that much more important.
