When still at school, Tiffiny Hall won the John Marsden Award for creative writing. She is the author of the Roxy Ran children’s fiction series with HarperCollins Publishers, including White Ninja, Red Samurai and Black Warrior. Her middle-school novel Maxi and the Magical Money Tree will be published mid-2015.
Tiffiny has a Bachelor of Arts/Media and Communications and Diploma of Modern Languages (French) from the University of Melbourne, Certificate III & IV in Fitness and a Diploma of Sport (coaching) with a specialisation in martial arts. She is currently studying a Diploma in Business. Tiffiny is a 5th Dan black belt in Taekwondo with over 25 years of training and more than 15 National titles.
Tiffiny worked as a journalist before writing her first health book, How to create the Ultimate Body. This was followed by Weightloss Warrior, Fatloss for Good – the secret weapon, her Lighten Up cookbook, and You Beauty! – a manual for creating a better you every single day (Hardie Grant). Tiffiny is currently a trainer on Network Ten’s The Biggest Loser Families and continues to be a positive media role-model for building confidence and health.
I’ve always been a writer, starting out as a journalist before writing books. I also have a passion for health and fitness and building confidence. I’m a Taekwondo instructor in my family’s Taekwondo school, Hall’s Taekwondo, and I’m a trainer on Network Ten’s The Biggest Loser. I’ve also been a children’s party entertainer, personal trainer, ‘school speaker, corporate motivator and all round Health Concierge to many different clients and students in all sorts of creative ways.
I learned the value of confidence and resilience through martial arts and working in the media. The sport of Taekwondo taught me how to focus, commit, strive, clarify my goals and how to deal with defeat and challenges. These values have made me successful in all areas of my life, and it is this black belt mindset I try to instill in others. Martial arts and health are passions that shine through all areas of my work, including my Roxy Ran kids series, which is about transformation and finding the gift of confidence. I hope to educate and entertain young audiences with strong messages of self-confidence, anti-bullying, positive choices, self-protection, resilience winning habits, positive self-talk, leadership, team work and health. Working in the media I also like to tackle body image and social media with behind-the-scenes filming stories that break down stereotypes.

I have two clear passions writing and health. I am so lucky I can combine both. I can help kids to be more motivated and healthy as a trainer and also encourage creativity and self-expression as an author.
I am currently working on Network Ten’s The Biggest Loser Families as trainer of the White Team. I’ve also appeared on The Project, Love to Share, Nickelodeon, ABC3, Foxtel, Celebrity Come Dine With Me, Gladiators as superhero ‘Angel’, Mornings, The Circle, Slideshow and Kids WB.
I would like to congratulate Tiffiny on her excellent presentation I recently attended at Cheltenham Library. She was informative, engaging and a pleasure to listen to. As an Accredited Practicing Dietitian it was wonderful to hear that Tiffiny is as passionate and committed to the benefits of good nutrition as she is to the benefits of exercise when educating the public on how to improve their health. You must have commitment to both for success. I have great respect and admiration for Tiffiny following her presentation and am happy to recommend her books to my clients for quality information and inspiration.
