Personal Training and Fitness Coach

The ultimate training experience where you receive one-on-one training through a variety of difference plans on offer (see plans page).

All training plans include a pre-exercise questionnaire, personal profile, ongoing fitness assessments, healthy eating and general nutrition advice and the first session is free!

The fitness assessment sets the benchmark for improvement throughout your training. We take some basic body measurements, assess resting heart rate, take blood pressure and conduct relevant cardio, strength & flexibility tests. This data confirms your readiness to commence a program.

More detailed plans also include written programming cards for use at home in between personal training sessions to maximise your results. All programmes and fitness assessments are evaluated regularly.

Injury and Rehabilitation

Recovering from injury can be frustrating, painful and seem to take such a long time. Whether it be work-related, as a result of a fall or car accident or a sporting injury, the natural progression to full range of motion and developing strength and function is through rehabilitation.

Once you have been ably cared for by health professionals, the natural and suggested progression is through to rehab training.

Julie Andrews is a qualified injury and sports rehabilitation trainer with the skills & knowledge necessary to help you regain strength, function, range of movement and confidence. Dedicated to working with your health care specialist to promote wellness in a safe and compassionate manner.

Once rehabilitation has been achieved, and you have been ’cleared’ by your health care specialist, we can then structure a regular, balanced program to maintain fitness. Just contact us to see how we can get started.

Advanced Conditioning

Taking personal training to a new level, advanced conditioning is selecting exercises and designing programs for the competitive athlete or weekend warrior as well as those who have reached a high level of performance and are looking to be challenged even further.

We spend considerable time understanding the many attributes of a given sport so that appropriate conditioning programs can be designed. Of course the client also needs to be fully assessed to ensure adequate levels of fitness for high intensity training.

Programming usually involves advanced cardiovascular training along with plyometric, speed, agility and quickness training. We are happy to work in conjunction with existing team or individual coaches.
