Who is Breathe Fire?


Breathe Fire is a dynamic fitness duo comprised of Craig Douglass and Heidi Mitchell.


Craig is a highly specialised, functional trainer. His predominant passion lies in improving the performance and athletic ability of individuals specifically pertaining to their sport and leisure pursuits. Craig has degrees in Sports and Exercise Management, Human Movement and Secondary Education from the University of Technology Sydney.  


Heidi, formerly the gym supervisor and personal trainer at London’s exclusive flagship Holmes Place Club in Kensington is highly skilled in core stability, balance control and body awareness. She is an AUSTSWIM coach and instructs adults in technical precision, lung capacity training and the relationship between body awareness and the water. She specifically coaches swimming for surfers, fitness and rehabilitation from injury. She is also a qualified NeuroSpinologist which is a profession dealing with the relationship between the vertebral joints and the functions of the nervous system and worked with the Academy of Applied Functional Sciences for many years developing their student programme.  Heidi has written for Australian Fitness Network and is the Marketing and Communications Officer for the Centre for Healthy Brain Ageing.  



Craig is one of those trainers you don’t expect. He comes across all light-hearted and playful and surfer-boy and then all of a sudden you’re knocked off your feet at the level of importance he places on saftey and longevity and how progressive he is in the style of sport-specific programming he develops. The enthusiasm and passion that exudes from Craig is highly contagious.


Heidi is a gorgeous and intelligent individual who has a superhero type of connection with her body. She is the goddess of balance and has an uncanny ability to bring the best out of people. She is passionate about cardiovascular health, impeccable technique and injury prevention.
