Pronunciation /ˈsi ː suː /
Strength of will, courage, and resilience in the face of adversity.
1920s. From Finnish sisu.
Sisu is a unique Finnish concept. It stands for the philosophy that what must be done will be done, regardless of what it takes. Sisu is a special strength and persistent determination and resolve to continue and overcome in the moment of adversity… an almost magical quality. It is a combination of stamina, perseverance, courage and determination held in reserve for hard times.
Together, we are SiSU.
Our story starts with a friendship that began in a local gym, years ago. Very quickly, we identified a common interest – helping people prioritise their health. We believe good health is the foundation to a better life.
A dream was soon born to combine Alex’s background as both a physiotherapist and pharmacist, with Agatha’s background in personal training, health coaching and human resources. We wanted to create a holistic wellbeing space that could help every member achieve their individual health goals.
Fast forward a number of years of relentless searching, in late 2020 our dream became a reality. We are incredibly proud to offer a community focused facility, where a holistic approach encompasses all that we offer. We hope that with our collective experience and combined desire, we will achieve our mission to coach, motivate and inspire each member of our SiSU community.
We’re committed to running our business in alignment with all of our personal values and that includes doing our bit for planet earth. With this in mind, anything we do at SiSU undergoes an environmental impact assessment, to ensure, where possible, our products, processes and systems are as kind to our earth (land, people and animals) as possible.
We can’t wait to welcome you into our SiSU community.
Agatha & Alex

Our mission is to coach, motivate and help you improve.
“My aim is to help and inspire others to work towards being the best versions of themselves, and in turn, make the world a better place because of it”.
“When you’ve achieved your goals to live a happy, healthy and pain free life, I’ve achieved mine. That’s why I’ll be right there next to you, every step of the way.
“As long as you are safe, you get a sweat on and you leave the gym smiling, I’ve done my job right!”
“I like to see smiles on clients’ faces; it gives me great joy and inspires me to keep improving so I can help them even more.”
