Fitter. Faster. Better.

Swing higher! Climb harder!

Stretch your body to its limits with a boot camp run entirely by children. Each adult participant is paired with a ‘personal trainer’ between six and ten years old for a workout designed to challenge the contemporary commodification of fitness.

This work has been performed as part of Dance Massive at Malthouse Theatre; at City Park Playground, Launceston as part of Junction Arts Festival; in Surfers Paradise for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games; and other events throughout the country!

“…even more amazing was your vision in giving adults personal trainers between six and ten years old. I can’t decide if that’s madness or genius. I think probably both.”
