You don't have to be fit (or have even ever stepped into a gym before!) to get started with personal training.
"Kaz" is a perfect example of that.
A busy single mum in her 40's with a daughter under 3, Kaz developed a deep passion and goal of joining the police force.
With almost no history of gym-based training, Kaz knew she needed to do something in order to pass the challenging fitness test required to enter the police.
Nervous, but excited to get started, Kaz trusted that we were going to slowly progress her, and not try to push her too hard from day 1.
And that's exactly what we did.
Kaz started with one session per week. Soon enough, she was doing two sessions per week. Then three...
Over the course of her 15 month journey with us, Kaz lost over 10kg, but the most important thing is... she nailed her police fitness test!! Her strength, fitness and confidence went through the roof, which dramatically impacted all aspects of her life.
"What I loved the most about training at Evexia is that once I'd set the goal, the team planned exactly how I was going to achieve that goal. While I wasn't a 'gym person', the community was so friendly, everybody was in the same boat, and I never felt intimidated or pressured while working out."
Many people think that to start personal training, they have to be 'fit', or they'll feel embarrassed that they can't keep up.
This is completely the opposite of what we do.
Our job is to introduce you to exercise, work with your body's current abilities, and gently progress you to more advance exercises as you get stronger and fitter.
Exactly as we did with Kaz, this is a process that works you towards your goals, safely, and leaves you feeling stronger and more motivated to keep exercising.
