We need your help!

We love a good makeover, it gets you feeling all fresh and organised. But makeovers aren’t just for people; businesses need them too! That’s why over the last year we’ve been busily working away at some beautiful new branding to freshen up our look. And what branding would be complete without a shiny new website!

Some of you may have noticed already that the Bounce site is looking pretty amazing! But if you haven’t checked it out yet, you should! It’s fresh, clean and has heaps more information about what we do and how we can help you or your business.

The website has been remodelled to be more helpful to you, specifically. We want to get you the info you want and need with less clicks and more clarity – so we would love your feedback!

If you can’t find something or want to give us some suggestions on how we can make the website even better, we would love to hear it! Head over to our website and send us an email through info@bounceaustralia.com letting us know what you think!

No mountain too high!

Maria has been out and about a lot this year, between facilitating corporate sessions, attending conferences, and going from meeting to meeting, Maria has definitely gained some frequent flyer points. But September’s trip was something extra special. For six days, Maria, along with 21 other adventurers, such as Karla Gilbert, Sam Riley and Pat Rafter, trekked up and down Lord Howe Island (and when we say up, we mean UP!). This amazing experience raised funds for the LifeChanger Foundation and pushed everyone to their physical limits.

The group took in the best sites and experiences of this world heritage, natural wonder. With seven stunning peaks to climb and seven incredible bays, swimming holes and natural aquatic wonders to explore, there was definitely no time to be bored.

Scaling the sides of mountains with nothing but a thin piece of rope for her safety, Maria pushed herself more than ever before, and we couldn’t be more proud! … Just don’t ask about her elbow.

Trainer of the Month

It’s time for our last trainer of the month for the year! Everybody, please put your hands together for the incredible Tessa Jetson! This spectacular Bounce Trainer radiates energy and light everywhere she goes, putting smiles on participant’s faces and drawing people in with her infectious personality.

To say Tessa is passionate about empowering people to live life to their full potential, would be a huge understatement. As well as being a Bounce Trainer, Tessa has her own foundation called Tessa Jetson Foundation , which supports women and children that come from abusive homes. The foundation is currently raising funds to hold their second Restart Your Life Retreat .

Tessa’s passion for helping women and children comes from her own appreciation of the people that supported her when her life went down the same path. This is Tessa’s way of saying thank you.
