Welcome to Barb Millar Training

Over a span of 20 years I have been lucky to have had a great time training, learning and taking part in many fantastic events in Christchurch, Canterbury and around the South Island. Now as a qualified trainer and coach of many years I am passionate about sharing my experience and knowledge to encourage women of any age or ability to experience life in the active lane that brings together achievment and fun.  

Everybody is capable of being active and experiencing the thrill of achievment.  The secret is blending everything that your life is now with a level of training that builds your fitness and strength in a fun way making fab friends, creating great memories and expriences along the way.

2020 with Covid was a year that has challenged everyone and I for one am grateful we live in New Zealand.  thankfully as we continue in our Covid Level 1 2021 has seen the return of many of the events.  

I have collated a spreadsheet calendar of events for January to June of 2021 (check link on the heading above or bellow this) with links to the various websites.  Primarily the events are local Christchurch and Canterbury with some events further away that I know are well worthwhile for you to consider taking a road trip to take part.  The decision to add them is based on my experience and of being involved in the events in the past and as an event organiser for many years. I am familiar with these event, the organisers, the event terrain and complexity.  This does exclude some of the new events so if you know of an event that should be on here send me an email with the event website and information.

There are some that are still to be confirmed by event organisers.  They are listed at the bottom of the calendar and will be updated when confirmed

If you would like my opinion on an event that you are interested in email me on
