Real people, real results.
Research shows that of all the people who exercise, only 25% get the results they are looking for. Out of those people who do get results, 90% used a Personal Trainer (IHRSA)”. So what are you waiting for?
You will get results FAST with one of our Personal Training Systems, developed by Amanda Coombe, five times Tasmanian Fitness Professional of the Year.
Hiring a trainer is the best investment you can make in your health and well being, especially in terms of creating and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
A personal trainer will help you achieve real results, especially if:
- You need extra motivation
- You want to improve your exercise technique
- You want to know what exercises are best for you and your posture
- You want to break out of your current “fitness plateau”
- You want to see results quickly
- You are new to exercise and / or the gym, and need professional guidance
- Or one of many outcomes that are PERSONAL to you.
What should you look for when choosing a personal trainer?
A good Personal Trainer should be able to train people in most areas, whether they want to lose weight, gain muscle, train for a ‘fun run’ or recover from an injury.
Look for a Personal Trainer with a track record of success who has been referred to you by someone who has achieved results. At Personal Best Fitness all our personal trainers are Certified Level 4 and registered with Fitness Australia, some also have the Diploma of Fitness.

What the Personal trainers say;
“Some clients are quite competitive, and working out with like-minded members really pushes them that bit further,” says Kate.
For others, it works the opposite way “A few ladies have become convinced that they have the worst coordination in the world. When they exercise with friends, they realize that everyone has different strengths and weaknesses, and they are not as bad as they first thought!” says Shiela
“There is no way that these guys would be still exercising twice a week after 10 plus years, these guys have families and businesses and enjoy the stress release and camaraderie that the group brings”. Colin
“Exercise is much easier when you are part of a group.”Sheena Reeves

Personal Best Fitness has undertaken corporate health and wellbeing programs for the following companies:
“There was an excellent balance of education and practical aspects. The length of the program was appropriate as it ensured ongoing focus and awareness allowing for successful habits to be formed” -Arnold Willems
“Good mixture of education and physical activity, fostered great interaction between all participants. This program finally got me motivated” – Mike Burdon
“The program has given me a reason to start exercising” – Rod Bender
“The best features of the program were the delivery style and appropriateness of exercise and the before and after fitness checks” – Greg Ludford
“The regular commitment and examples of being shown correct ways to exercise and stretch” – Jeff
“I now find it easy to make time for exercise and what types of food to avoid” – Peter Kearney
“I didn’t realise how simple it was to exercise without expensive equipment” – Peter Sylvester
“The best feature of the program was the simple exercises programs that can be done at home, this program has given me the opportunity to re-evaluate my lifestyle” – Vaughan Coleman
The program was well thought out and the variety of weekly sessions played a big part in maintaining everyone’s enthusiasm and high level of motivation. The gym component was invaluable as many of our workforce had previously felt overwhelmed at the prospect of exercising at a gym. We know have a number of employees who have the confidence to attend the gym on a regular basis. The food education sessions have also played a major role in changing the lifestyles of a number of employees with many surprised that a healthy diet does not mean they have to live on lettuce and water! It is difficult to determine whether the obvious benefit of having a healthier workforce outweighs the significant boost to morale amongst the group. We could not have asked for a more successful outcome.
