Kylie Ismale's passion for fitness has taken her on a journey from avid class participant to taking on the role of instructor at the Wangaratta Indoor Sports & Aquatic Centre.  In July Kylie took out the title of staff winner for the Tour de Wang event, which ended on July 29, mirroring the Tour de France.

Kylie has a long history of fitness, with 16 years as a member with the Wangaratta YMCA and two previous first-place wins in the Tour de Wang.

She cycled over 700km last year, but this year covered 386.2km over the three weeks, and won the staff member first place which is awarded with a myotherapy massage voucher and some flowers.

"I won the last two years, but this year I thought I'd let Michelle win," Kylie said of her friendly competition with Michelle Lloyd, this year's Tour de Wang winner.

"i do regular cycling classes at the Barr and I teach Les Mills Bodystep and Aqua there.

After being a member for 16 years, Kylie's passion motivated her to do something more, and with encouragement from her own instructor, she took up a role as class instructor within the WISAC.

"i've always done a lot of fitness and just really enjoy it so I kept at it, until it took me to bigger things."
