Meet The BodySmart Team

Simon Black

Simon Black has had one of the most distinguished careers in AFL history. In addition to winning both the Brownlow and the Norm Smith medals, Simon’s Brisbane Lions took home the AFL Premiership three times during his time at the club.

Having played professionally from 1997 to 2013, he’s testament to the fact that you can’t survive that long in footy without being smart about your body. These days, as a high-performance coach and as an educator and Director of Coaching at the Simon Black Australian Rules Academy, he uses his knowledge and his experience to help others be smarter with their bodies. And that makes him the perfect addition to the Nature’s Own BodySmart Team.

Sally Pearson OAM

Olympic Gold Medallist and two-time World Champion hurdler, Sally Pearson has spent a career pushing her body to its limits.

To make it as one of the world’s greatest hurdlers, Sally’s needed to be BodySmart. Supported by a manager, an agent and a team of physios, nutritionists and sports psychologists, she’s learned to understand every part of her body and how it performs. She hasn’t just used this knowledge to win medals, but also to overcome injuries, like a smashed wrist, torn hamstrings and ruptured Achilles tendons.

Now, as part of the Nature’s Own BodySmart Team, Sally’s bringing her wealth of body knowledge to help Australians become smarter about their bodies

Silvia Colloca

As a food lover and cook, Italian-born Silvia is incredibly passionate about food. That’s why she’s made it her mission to educate Australians on the joys of Italian cooking.

Having written four books on food, Silvia obviously knows how to get the best flavours out of a meal. But it’s her deeper understanding of food that really make her a health expert.

Bringing with her years of experience in the kitchen, not to mention her credentials as a certified yoga instructor, Silvia joins the Nature’s Own BodySmart team.
