What can I expect during my first personal training session?
Consultation and screening
Before your first personal training session we will meet to undertake a comprehensive screening of your:
- medical conditions and medication
- lifestyle and nutritional habits
- health and fitness goals.
Personal training sessions
Ranging from 30-60 minutes, no two personal training sessions are the same.
To extend your range of motion and help you get the most benefit from the session, I may start with dynamic stretching or trigger point therapy.
A typical session includes a combination of exercises designed to improve cardio fitness, muscular endurance and flexibility. I will challenge you; encouraging you to move beyond your comfort zone. I will modify the workout as we go depending on your ability and energy levels. Don’t be surprised if I give you homework, such as a food diary to complete, or stretches to do independently.
I don’t take myself too seriously and neither should you; laughter is a vital part of all sessions.

How much does it cost to train with you?
Personal training is an investment in your future. I understand that people have different budgets and offer a range of personal training packages. If you don’t find what you are looking for, I can create a bespoke training package which meets your goals and budget.

Do you offer private health fund rebates?
Many health funds recognise the health benefits of personal training and, depending on your level of cover, you may be eligible for a rebate.
As each private health fund has its own claim process, inclusions and potential rebate amounts, please contact your provider to determine whether you are eligible for a rebate, and what you need to do to make a claim.
If you require a tax invoice, please let me know.
What type of clients do you work with?
I work with a wide range of people.
My youngest client is 16 and my oldest is 74 but age is irrelevant if you are 100% committed. Most clients train with me once or twice per week. Others book fortnightly or monthly sessions.
Can I still train with you if I have injuries or health issues?
We will discuss any medical conditions and injuries at the initial consultation. It is important that I am aware of these conditions so I can train you safely. If you have serious health condition you will need to obtain medical clearance before we commence.
Can you help me with nutrition?
Whether you want to lose weight or gain muscle, exercise and nutrition go hand in hand. I am not a qualified dietician or nutritionist but I have studied nutrition for weight management and muscle gain.
All personal training packages include a comprehensive nutritional analysis to help me:
- understand your eating habits
- assess whether you are eating the sufficient vitamins and minerals to achieve your goals and ensure your body is working at optimum capacity
- calculate your ideal calorie intake
- recommend changes to portion sizes and/or healthy substitutions.
How soon can I expect to see results?
Fast fixes rarely work. I am committed to helping you achieve realistic, sustainable results. Depending on your goal and how often you train, you will start to feel different (eg. increased energy and confidence; improved concentration) after two weeks, and see visible changes in as little as four weeks. To maximise results, I recommend training at least three times per week (either with me or independently).
Can my friend and I train together?
I often train small groups of 2-3 people. As a little more pre-planning is required, I charge an additional $5 per session.
Do I have to join a gym?
I can come to your home or office, saving you time and money. I offer personal training in the Brisbane CBD and northern suburbs.
What equipment do I need?
Comfortable clothing, a supportive pair of sports shoes, towel and a drink bottle. I provide, set up and pack away all the equipment we will need for each session. If you have equipment that you would like to use, that’s ok too.
If you are looking to purchase equipment for use at home, I am able to provide recommendations to meet your needs and budget.
