Bowie Stover

They/Them

Fitness & Strength Coach

I am inspired by the strength and courage that Gender Diverse people show on a daily basis. Simply by being who you are and living the lives that are fulfilling to each of you.

It takes determination to face the questions that will be asked, the looks that come from others who may not know or understand your story or ask you to fit into society’s “norms”.

My passion to help others through developing an active and healthy lifestyle, along with my desire to contribute as much as I can back to our queer community, has led me to co-found Non Gendered Fitness.

To be a small part of your day that makes a HUGE impact on your life would be one of the most gratifying and rewarding experiences that I could hope to have.

They/Them

Nutrition and Mindset Coach

I believe it’s super important to discover who we are, who we want to be and how we want to express ourselves in this lifetime.

I’ve been on my own journey from overcoming addictions to alcohol and food, struggling to stick to training programs, and experiencing gender dysphoria throughout my life.

As a result of receiving coaching in 2014, I successfully quit drinking alcohol, achieved control over my eating habits and find joy in cooking and eating a plant-based diet, and sticking to a training plan comes easily.

Now, I am passionate about helping other people do the same. I became a certified Precision Nutrition, Nutrition Coach in 2017 and a certified Life Coach in 2018. And since then, I’ve learnt a lot about myself, my gender identity and have grown to love me just as I am.

If you’re struggling with addiction and find it hard to create new positive habits that help you to feel good, then please feel free to reach out to me.

Hello! My name’s Jodie Nagyivan and I’m an aboriginal trans-woman of the Tatungalung people in the Gunai Kurnai nations in Southeast Gippsland and I’m here to get people moving! After a bit of a whirlwind adventure starting 3 careers, living around Australia and even overseas, I’ve finally found myself in a great place with Non Gendered Fitness.

Before all this, I was going hard at it in the office! Working in public health and other state government departments, I eventually learnt that something was missing! I tried to change things up by traveling and even became a musterer in the Far North Queensland cattle stations for a while!

Eventually I returned to Melbourne and thought to myself; ‘screw it! I’m going to do what I’ve always wanted to do and start dancing!’. At first it was swing and ballroom dancing but then I found ballet and that sparked a chain reaction leading to my passion for health and movement in general! I love finding ways I can do more with my body, especially after a broken ankle, minor back injuries, constant sore knees, and repetitive strain injuries in my shoulders.

Lately I’ve been studying health and fitness in the form of a training certificate as well as Health Science at Monash University. After all this, I’m so keen to see people explore and expand their physical abilities! I can’t wait meet you all and see you move the way you want to!
