Tasting Fitness was founded by Personal Trainer Kate Coleman. With a background in Nutrition and Health Promotion, Kate is passionate about the links between what we eat and how we feel.
A mother of 3, Kate believes that balance is the most important thing in life for children in this ready-made food world of today. She understands that kids like their sweet treats but knows that by engaging them with where their food comes from and how it’s prepared is half the battle in converting them to "real food" fanatics.
With over 10 years experience in the fitness industry, Kate has a similar principle to exercise. "Fitness should be fun and challenging, balancing discipline and rest is the key to a long term fitness journey”
At Tasting Fitness, we understand the strong links between what we eat, our physical health and emotional state of mind.
Our purpose is to educate, empower and help children and adults find a real balance in eating the most nutritious foods available, moving our body for maximum health whilst still enjoying the odd treat.
Through cooking classes and recipe creation, wellbeing workshops and seminars as well as personal and group fitness, Tasting Fitness inspires real change for better living.
"Kate Coleman is a woman on a health-food mission. She’s adamant that it only takes 10 minutes to cook a healthy meal. Kate’s got a slew of ambassadors on board (and even shot a video with Tim Robards to promote the cause), and is proof that persistence – and passion – pays off.” - Lucy Cheek, Business Chicks
"This program is engaging and educational and more relevant than ever; students are so keen to learn healthy cooking, and even more thrilled when they discover how easy, and tasty, it is to do themselves. Integrating exercises into the lessons made them fun."
- Sam B, School Teacher (on the Healthy Living Workshops)
"Students academic results are better as the result of an active lifestyle." - Alistair, Principal
"No Packet November is also reaching remote Indigenous communities, with money
raised being donated to the Mai Wiru Sugar Challenge Foundation." - Jo Hartley, SBS Life
I'm inspired by people who care enough to make their community a bit better.
I'm inspired by people with passion.

No Packet November Movement
No Packet November was founded by Kate in 2016 after noticing how many people relied on packaged, processed foods each day. The aim is to encourage individuals & families to reduce their consumption for one month and eat more real foods, leading to improved health & less plastic in landfill. The NPN team provides daily recipes and shopping tips during November, with 20% of funds going to the Mai Wiru Sugar Challenge Foundation to support indigenous health. The campaign gained incredible momentum in its first year, and featured in the following media;
Events & Motivational Speaking
