Brisbane’s Best Personal Trainers

Brisbane’s Best Personal Trainers

Health and fitness: this time, it’s personal.

By Eveline Fielding and Lou Parker | 15th October 2015

We get it. It’s tough out there. Maybe your trust was broken. Maybe they crushed your self-esteem. Maybe they expected too much of you. But how will you know how great things can be again if you don’t at least try? What we’re saying is, the time has come for you to let go of the pain, get back on that horse, and find a new personal trainer.

Of course, there will always be doubts. The expense can be hard to justify, the workouts are intense, and that much enthusiasm towards burpees and squat jumps is nothing short of freakish.

No.

But you can’t quit as soon as the going gets tough, especially when there are so many benefits to reap.

We’re talking about programs tailored to you and your lifestyle, nutritious meal plans, tips and techniques to maximise your workout and prevent or overcome injuries, awesome motivation, and of course, that dang accountability of having to show up and commit to this supportive, svelte son of a B.

That’s why we’re helping you get started on the road back to love health and fitness, with our top picks for the best personal trainers in Brisbane.

David Kitchin, Core Health Coaching

Dave is all about overcoming any pains, injuries and infirmities you’ve been struggling with so you can rediscover fun, pain-free health and fitness. For him, age is just a number when it comes to fitness. “There is always a solution for our physical and health challenges if we’re willing to listen to our body and follow tried and true methods for great health and physical stature,” he says.
Plus, not bragging or anything, he’s a bit of a netball champ so he’ll understand those nasty shinsplints.
