ALL ABOUT US
Director, Health & Fitness Expert
Hi, my name is Crystal Wilkinson and I'm an active, energetic, mum, wife, daughter, sister, friend and accomplished business women. I love fitness and exercise, playing sport, being adventurous, organising, travelling and helping people achieve physical wellness, and spending time with my 2 beautiful daughters.
I live in Cashmere, Christchurch, with my husband Peter and daughters, Grace and Isla. I am a Personal Trainer and fitness professional, work at the YouCan gym in Cashmere, Christchurch and I'm the director of YouCan Ltd.
People say I’m highly competitive, give a hundred percent effort in everything I do and I’m always working toward being number-one. My clients, companies, and netball teams will testify to this!
After graduating from the Auckland University of Technology with a Bachelor of Sport and Recreation Degree, I worked as a Corporate Personal Trainer in the five star, Hyatt Hotel’s Spa and Fitness Centre in Auckland, successfully training many high profile clients. Additionally, I completed a Certificate in Sports Massage, while establishing my own company, YouCan Ltd.
At other times, you’ll find me running in the Port Hills, playing premier netball on Tuesday nights, training for 30-60km trial running races, surfing the waves in Sumner, mountain biking at the adventure park, or snowboarding the slopes in the Southern Alps. I was privileged to play in the Wellington NPC Netball Team in 2014 and 2015, with the Wellington team winning nationals in 2015.
I’m extremely passionate about helping others achieve their goals. It’s my desire to help people live healthier, more productive, enjoyable and active lives through physical health and well-being.
My mission is simple: ‘I want to help you become the heathiest version of yourself!’
And always remember... YouCan! (Please read our testimonials below)
