If you struggle to exercise with proper technique and need guidance with food… then my private 1 on 1 weight loss coaching might be right for you. I can help you get more energy throughout the day. Boost your metabolism so you shed more fat. Sculpt your body so you look good in clothes. Help you flatten your belly so you don’t look pregnant when wearing a shirt. And get a banging body so you feel confident out in public. I PT clients from 5 am all the way up to 9 pm every day. So regardless of your schedule, you let me know your availability and I will let you know if I can fit you in.
If you want to feel more confident wearing slim fit shirts, strengthen your knee and back… build upper body muscles and lose weight… then see how Rob was able to do so using us as his senior fitness coach.
If you want fitness programs tailored to you… get shredded abs like Daniel and… slim down like Nikki then our 12 week challenge might be right for you. This is not a cookie-cutter program where you do the same exercise as everyone else and eat 1000-1200 calorie diet plans.
I’m your motivator and specialist. I’ll help you get back your self-confidence, transform your body and improve your blood results without eating low calories.
My style of coaching is slightly unconventional but it’s helping clients get into the best shape for their age.
If you’re like some of my clients who like to eat McDonald’s and fast food then I will teach you how to incorporate it into your lifestyle.
This helps you stay consistent and get the results as you get older.
Also, the funny thing is, my client’s doctor can’t understand why they have perfect blood work at every check-up… considering what they eat.
On the other hand, I’ve also helped clients improve their liver health.
then my private coaching might be right for you.
I will tailor your fitness training programs so it fits within your lifestyle. This way you can maintain your results.
But, if you want to drop a little bit of weight, cut your calories and increase your activity level – this will do the job.
On the other hand. If you have A LOT of weight to lose and you want to keep it off plus…
then cutting calories alone won’t do the job. You will need to build and retain muscle during your fat loss journey. And this is where I’ll help you.
If it was easy every obese or overweight person would be lean and mean without weight regain issues. It’s more complex than you think.
Also, your metabolism is adaptive. This is why some people lose weight faster than others. Your personal trainer should know this and make adjustments to your programs.
Some people can eat pizzas or cheeseburgers and not gain weight… whereas you may sniff a cheeseburger and gain 5kg.
I have data from overweight clients where reducing calories DIDN’T do the job – in fact, they gained fat and lost LBM.
Whereas, other bigger clients – dropping calories did the job.
And, to prove my point about your metabolism being adaptive.
I have skinnier clients who are 40-50% body fat – aka skinny fat.
Now, reducing calories increased their binging eating episodes. Which resulted in fat gain due to low levels of muscle.
This resulted in more jiggly body parts and they were less toned.
So, you see, we are not all equal. A one size fit’s all calorie or meal plan is a cookie-cutter approach.
This is what I do first if I was your gym coach.
So, if you want to get back into shape without feeling deprived of food – I can show you how.
My flexible training programs will help you build and maintain strength in your legs and core.
Also, your lower back and legs can continue hours of endurance from walking, hiking or playing with the kids.
Recently, a client turned up to training wearing and fitting into old clothes they haven’t worn in 4 years… and you can too.
Take a look at my male testimonials and female before and afters for more proof.
**Side note** If you’re looking for over 50’s personal training then check out how I was able to help Rob get back in wearing clothes in their 20’s… in their 60’s.
He is in the best shape of his life.
I want you to picture this!
Imagine the look on your work colleagues face when you’re eating McDonald’s whilst… wearing your slim-fit clothes – 15kg lighter.
You then get a text message from your friends asking if you want to head to the beaches this weekend.
You say yes!
Because you’re proud to take your top off at the pool or beach.
You’ve tightened up your butt and your back looks sexy.
Your stomach is toner and defined.
Plus, your arms don’t jiggle anymore.
Everyone keeps saying you look strong and fit.
And, no matter what, every outfit you choose fits you perfectly.
Your killer curves mould to your clothes – all because you’ve been sculpting your body with my programs.
This is what self-confidence looks like.
And this is what Chester, amongst every other client of mine, is experiencing right now.
You can too if you use my coaching programs today.
If you need good dieticians or nutritionists due to food intolerance – then I know of some.
Having a personal trainer and nutritionists by your side can catapult your transformation and make life easier.
If this is what you’re looking for, then apply to work with us.
Whether you live in Brisbane city, southside or northside… here’s when I think you should ONLY hire a Brisbane PT.
If you struggle with motivation, ask a friend to train with you.
It will save you money.
But, if you’ve tried everything under the sun, and nothing is working for you, then hire a certified physical trainer in Brisbane.
Like most of my clients, you’ve tried either:
or, any other diet that’s restrictive or unsustainable.
And neither gave you the strong and sexy body transformation you wanted.
When you’ve done most or all the above and you’re struggling with getting results.
If you choose me as your new physical fitness trainer, I’ll show you how to get results eating the foods you love.
I’ll help you build strength and boost your metabolism.
And, I’ll make those tiny tweaks with your training which will give you big results.
I’ll help you lose those last 5 kilos.
And if you struggle with sleep, I’ll show you tips on how to get more blissful ZZZz.
I will give you access to my nutrition guidelines.
My guidelines have helped clients structure their diet.
And, it will show you how to eat out and stay slim.
Especially around your preferred lifestyle.
A male or female personal coach close to your home can help you lose weight.
On the condition, they provide you with the right diet and exercise advice – tailored to you.
Most PT trainers nearby are convenient. But, if they lack experience & knowledge with the results you want – then is it worth it?
Look, gym coaches who live near you might say you’re doing great with that push-up.
But, if all you feel are your arms and not your chest – is the service worth it? What if they don’t know how to correct your form?
no matter how many push-ups or bench presses they do?
Plus, they put themselves at risk of getting injured.
Anyone can do a push-up of some sort. The question is, can you do it right where you see significant changes?
Just remember, you pay for what you get.
Don’t expect 5-star service if you pay peanuts.
You can bust your ass off with a personal home fitness trainer for 1-3 hours a week.
Yet, if they can’t give you a step-by-step plan to do for the remaining 166 hours or so per week…
Then, don’t expect to burn fat, crush cravings or master your mindset.
And metabolism aside – as mentioned on this page.
Regardless of how hard you train with your fitness coach.
If your training technique is horrible and you eat over your calories… you will not tone up and lose weight.
It doesn’t matter if you “eat healthily” or “clean”.
If you don’t know already, calories are what determines weight loss or weight gain.
And balanced macronutrients ensure your body gets what it needs to maintain daily function.
Micronutrients help with blood clotting, immune function, energy production and others.
Now, if your goal is to sculpt your abs, arms and butt or… build lean muscle and blast evil cellulite, then eating fewer calories won’t cut it.
You will need to do proper strength and conditioning training – consistently.
Look, losing weight is one thing. But losing weight where you retain muscle (aka body recomposition) or… build some muscle is another story.
I also helped him lower his blood pressure naturally – whilst making his body strong.
He built a mighty chest, strong shoulders and arms.
The pain in his knee was gone and he got stronger, slimmer and tougher.
Check out his results here if you want.
If you’re looking for a personal trainer who specialises in obesity in Brisbane, then I can help.
Always do your due diligence when hiring a gym coach.
Whether you choose a female or male trainer, always look for video (you can’t fake that).
Look for written testimonials and before and after photos.
Success leaves clues.
Make sure they have proven results that you want.
All that matters is, you understand ‘you pay for what you get.’
They all started somewhere, and now they’re on top of the world!
It depends. What’s your budget? How much help do you need?
If you’re new to lifting weights, then you should find a personal trainer who can help you with the proper use of gym types of equipment.
I recommend 2-3 times per week if you’re a beginner.
1-2 times per week if you’re an intermediate to an advanced athlete.
And fortnightly – monthly if you’re an elite or professional athlete.
If you’re not new to strength training and you know how to use the right muscles when lifting – then once a week is fine.
As you can see, it all depends.
And some have lost a total of 20-30kg.
Training more is not always better.
Some clients see me fortnightly or monthly to check on their fitness training.
Plus, I have clients who do their flexible exercise training programmes at home and see me once a week at the personal training studio.
A physical trainer should never make a client feel they can never progress on their own.
Whether you do one-on-one in person or online, our goal is to:
If you lack motivation and need someone to hold you accountable then… you should see a 1-on-1 personal trainer more often.
But, if this is the only reason, then I would recommend training with a friend first. That way you can hold each other accountable and save money.
However, if you have a specific goal you’ve been struggling to achieve…
Then I recommend seeing a trainer more than once a week for about 6-12 weeks.
This will help you establish a new holistic routine and make sure it suits your preferred lifestyle.
You’ll learn how to lift weights properly.
And if you’re new to lifting or exercising then 3 times per week is the max.
You don’t want to become dependent on your exercise trainer.
It takes about 6-12 weeks to solidify your new habit.
This works well with couples training, over 50s, at home, postpartum, outdoor mobile PT or… small group training.
From there, I would suggest switching to a mobile exercise trainer near your area once you have mastered your at-home PT workouts.
That way, you can progress further without buying gym equipment – just like Marc.
Below is Marc – my ex-client.
Part of the physical skills training for the police service requires you to do 10 full push-ups.
The Doctors said to Marc “you’ll never regain full strength and use of your arm.”
Marc was shattered.
I taught him the fundamentals with regards to weight lifting and nutrition.
He lost 10kg with us and then some.
Fast forward, he is now a police officer and can do 5 unassisted chin-ups.
Because of the skills and knowledge learnt from me, Marc can now use a mobile trainer to push him without worrying if his technique is wrong.
He was told by specialists that he would never have complete strength or be able to do push-ups again…
There’s no set rule on how long you should stay with a personal fitness coach.
Some say you should plan to work with your fitness coach for 3-6 months.
And others say when you have reached your goals.
Here’s what I’ve been doing with all my personal training clients since 2009.
From there, I will show you when and how to swap exercises around.
I’ll then show you when and how to assign the right reps and sets to your exercise programs, so you continue to build beach muscles.
And lastly, my preferred method to adjust your training programs when you plateau. This will help you build a V-taper back of your dreams.
If you do everything that I teach you above consistently – your results will compound over time.
And you won’t ever need to hire a PT anymore – unless you want to.
It depends on what you consider as worth it.
Is it worth it if your goal is to lose weight without saggy skin and…you hire a personal home trainer that has no experience or knowledge on nutrition.
And 6 weeks later, your clothes are still tight. You still have your winter weight. Your love handles haven’t changed.
Do you think it worth it?
Some people only want a trainer to push them.
And that’s fine – nothing wrong with that.
then you’ll need more than ‘train hard.’
Like Chester below.
There was a lot of tracking, manipulating food and training to get the results he wanted.
Your certified trainer will need to build a personalised workout and nutrition plan tailored to suit your goal and lifestyle.
If it doesn’t fit within your lifestyle – you will eventually give up.
And “You can’t out-train a bad diet”
The reason why my clients can transform their body, see amazing progress and maintain it – is because I tailor it to their lifestyle.
On top of that, I track their progress, diet and make adjustments when they plateau – weekly.
Motivation doesn’t come from me, it comes from the results you see.
Think about it.
a friend comments on how good you look – are you more motivated?
At home personal trainers can provide you with extra motivation but not all trainers are equal.
Some are very knowledgeable with years of experience – and they are more expensive.
And the cheapest personal trainers are less experienced.
So you pay for what you get.
Also, mobile trainers are limited to gym equipment.
So what I’m saying is, don’t expect to build quality muscles with a medicine ball or with 5-kilo dumbbells.
If that was the case, I’d ditch the gym and be at home watching Netflix and curling 5kg.
Some people consider a mobile personal trainer worth it… others don’t.
You need to be the judge.
Ask yourself, what results do I want?
From there, you’ll know which trainer to pay for.
Gym or local trainers near you should NOT provide detailed meal plans. Unless they’re also a Registered Dietitian (RD) or a licensed physician.
Workout trainers can provide guidance and some structure around meals.
Look, I’m not an RD and even if I was, I still wouldn’t write meals plans.
Since 2009, I have coached clients who had eating disorders.
They saw meal plans as “I’m on the meal plan, I followed the diet, and I was good” or… “I’m off the meal plan and the diet was bad.”
In fact, I see this very often with new clients.
For lunch, her meal plan said to have a pear, yet she had an apple. She viewed her meal plans as a gospel that must be followed… if she wanted results.
She felt like a failure when she stuffed up. And because of that, she chowed down a tub of ice cream.
Keep in mind, the apple might have the same macronutrients as a pear. Yet because she lacked basic nutritional knowledge, she went on a binge. All because she felt like she stuffed up.
I get it, meal plans are straightforward and easy to follow.
And you don’t have to plan your meals on your own. Someone has done all the heavy lifting for you.
If you answered no, then why use meal plans if it’s going to set you up to fail?
Meal plans can be great for short term solutions but they won’t help you get to your long-term goals.
They don’t teach you basic nutrition.
You don’t know how to incorporate nutritional knowledge into your preferred lifestyle.
If I catch personal trainers near me prescribing meal plans, I question their authenticity… even if they are an RD. And so should you.
The education requirements to become a gym coach include:
They can only instruct small group personal training classes and act as a gym instructor.
I’m certificate 3 and 4 certified and covered with Exercise Professionals Liabilities Insurance.
If your coach doesn’t have insurance, I would think twice about working with them.
If anything was to ever happen to you, and they don’t have insurance – well you know rest.
Even though I always train clients with proper technique and precautions, clients who travel from Brisbane northside, western suburbs, Brisbane CBD or… east or south Brisbane feel confident knowing that I’m insured and certified.
I am also registered with Fitness Australia.
“If you think it’s expensive to hire an experienced private trainer… wait until you hire an amateur personal trainer”
The best Brisbane personal trainers do more than you think.
To get you the best results, my job is to understand your body.
I need to know/understand your
So next time you hire a PT in Brisbane, check if they do all the above.
You’ll soon find out why they’re one of the cheapest trainers in Brisbane.
Certified fitness trainers set their own prices.
Personal physical trainers who coach out of commercial gyms charge more.
The reason being is the hefty rent they need to pay.
Also, PT’s near Brisbane CBD charge more for their services – and here’s why:
I was able to ask a few gym trainers, instructors, virtual trainers and… sports specific training coaches from different gyms.
Keep in mind, prices for a workout trainer can vary from studios, gyms or clubs.
These figures are for 1-on-1 personal training and the cost for a mobile or in-home personal trainer may vary.
So, keep in mind these are not set figures. Experienced coaches are more expensive but you pay for what you get.
