Making life a ball


Queenstown’s Karl Dennis (right) has a well-rounded outlook on life.

He’s not just a personal trainer – he’s a “holistic lifestyle coach” with experience in nutrition, stress levels, sleep patterns and breathing.

The 34-year-old’s starting up his new business Platinum Training in the resort, to help people “achieve goals, feel rejuvenated and control your lifestyle”.

Originally from northern Southland, Dennis previously spent seven years in London where he managed two boutique health clubs, including a luxury place at Chelsea Football Club.

He focuses on “postural assessment and rehabilitation, functional strength and conditioning”, plus weight loss, muscle toning and nutrition, and says he guarantees results.
