HUDZ

Queen Arena

Kai atu taku mata ki runga o Haokitaha he maunga mātirotiro
Ka titiro whakararo ko Ohinemataroa te wai whakaora i te wairua
Kia tu tangata whenua ahau ki tōku marae ko te Papakainga tēra
Ko Ngati Koura kiri kawa ki te rakau, kiri kawa ki te riri e
Ko Tuhoe taku Mana Motuhake
Tau atu ana ki taku waka o Mataatua
piki mai, kake mai, whakatau mai ra
Ko Haromi Williams toku ingoa

I am The Gatekeeper,  the holder and keeper of keys, always opening up new doors and pathways, creating new programs, always going off on tangents and making people part of our family.

Wairua, mauri, flow: those are some of the things I love. Apart from my family and my friends, energy and empowerment is my jam.

I am our Squad Sisters Kemetic Yoga instructor. My belief is "if you can breathe, you can yoga". Kemetic Yoga has so many similarities to Maori spiritual practices and I bring these indigenous practices into our sessions wherever possible, while respecting the Kemetic principles I've learned through my training.

Courtz and Hudz are my homies from way back. Togther we help our members rise into themselves.

He uri ahau no Te Whakatohea

I've been slaying it with Aunty Courtz since her

and Aunty Hudz started Squad Sisters. 

They call me Kill because

I love to train, I love to see what my body can do.

I'm staying strong and fit for July

when I get to join the Police Academy

and fulfil my dream in becoming a police officer.

I have a background as a Les Mills instructor at our local gym

here in Opotiki and have been in touch

and netball rep teams most of my life.

My speciality is endurance training. I launched my first solo program

with Squad Sisters called 30 Days to 5K's in April 2021.

My workouts are called Kill-Sanity.

My focus is to help people build a better relationship

with running and learn how to do it safely and effectively.

Ko Damian Papuni taku ingoa

Courtz is my wife and Hudz my sis-in law. I love them and I love them even better when they are being efficient.

I look after the background systemisations. I've been in the IT industry for over 15 years. And if there is one thing I believe in, it would be that you can accomplish anything you want, but it would be easier if you had an amazing system backing you.

They've got your back and I've got theirs. They have some crazy, bodacious ideas and I'm here to make sure they achieve them.

One rep and one step at a time.
