BIANCA SIMPSON
Director of Personalized Fitness 4 You
Nationally Certified Personal Trainer
2000 Olympian (Road Race)
Professional Athlete
(3 Sports cycling, triathlon, and duathlon)
World Ranking of 5th in Duathlon
Numerous Professional Wins and Top 3 finishes
Commonwealth Games Representative 1998

Bianca is an Olympic cyclist who competed in the 2000 Sydney Olympics. Bianca has dual citizenship in Western Samoa and New Zealand. In 1998 while based in the Netherlands with her Dutch professional cycling team, she decided to switch her affiliation to Western Samoa the birth country of both her grandmother and grandfather and qualify for the 2000 Olympics. Bianca had only two chances to qualify the country for the Olympics in cycling the World Championships in South America and the Oceanic games in Australia. Bianca finished second in the World Championships earning herself a silver medal and a top ten performance at the Oceanic games qualified the country. Bianca would be the first female to represent Western Samoa in the Olympics. During the Olympic year Bianca made several visits to Western Samoa to meet and inspire women of all ages. She walked the sands of her grandmother’s small village “Papa”. Her grandmother played a big part in her cycling career from representing New Zealand as a junior and elite rider to eventually representing Samoa. A few days before the opening ceremony Bianca’s grandmother passed away, but her dream was fulfilled when her granddaughter walked into the Olympic Stadium as the first female Olympian for Samoa.

In 2001 Bianca turned down a sports scholarship funded by the Australian Institute of Sport and retired from elite cycling. Six months later she picked up a pair of running shoes and hit the pool to become a professional triathlete and duathlete. A world ranking of 5th in duathlon, various wins and top 3 finishes in World Cups and Half Ironman Championships Bianca knows how to train and offers all her experience and insight to you. Her mentor as a young New Zealand cyclist was the late Don Oliver who introduced her to gym training in 1994.

Don was a 3 time New Zealand Olympian and Commonwealth games athlete. He took Bianca under his wing and trained her along side a few New Zealand All Black Rugby players, golfers, and swimmers.

“Don gave me my foundation of strength in the gym he told me it would stay with me the rest of my life. It was natural for me to fall into this job, an opportunity to help people of all levels the way Don taught me.”

Matt coached a competitive climbing team since 2013 and in 2016 brought his team to USA Climbing Nationals in Kennesaw GA. Long before he was a professional coach Matt was a competitive climber as well.

“I found myself in the climbing gym continually being asked by my peers... How do I do this route?... How did you do that?...Can you teach me how you train? I wanted to find a way to share my knowledge and help my fellow fitness enthusiasts achieve their goals too."
