    I have been Personal Training for 7 years with Millennium Health Club. I am inspired professionally by helping my clients achieve goals they never thought were possible. The majority of the time a client comes to see me they want to lose weight or gain strength. When working towards this goal, we set other goals based around their major goal, and as a result the client might perform something incredible like their first chin up or complete a 10km marathon and realise how much more they are capable of achieving. As a trainer I enable my clients to be able to learn and understand the process of obtaining their goals. Knowing the right technique for an exercise, how to perform different types of programs based on their goals and other such aspects of exercising is a huge advantage in the long run. This allows my clients to enjoy their training with myself and in their own workouts as they have the knowledge and correct technique.

    Little about Jay

    My life has revolved around playing sport and training at the highest level. Sport and fitness have always been my greatest passions. I was top state level athlete in my younger years and have a long standing netball career. I have played netball in the NSW Waratah Cup for eight years and captained many teams along the way. I have also represented NSW on a number of occasions. Most recently I was a member of the 2015 NSW Waratahs team in the Australian Netball League. My professional career started in business but something was missing. I made the bold decision over two years ago to follow my passion and switch to a career in the fitness industry and have never looked back. If you’re an athlete I’d love to work with you particularly if you’ve never tried strength training before. You will never be capable of performing at your full athletic potential until you maximise your full body strength in the gym. You will jump higher, run faster and be more efficient in your movements. Recently I was privileged to train a current member of the NSW Swifts team. She was unable to do one push up when we started and after three months of training could do 3x10 chest to floor push ups! I am also extremely passionate about educating women on the benefits and importance of strength training. No – you will not get bulky! Yes - you will look more “toned” and feel “tighter” but most importantly improved self confidence, a sense of empowerment and the impact it will have on your overall mental health is priceless. But overall whether you’re an elite athlete or first-timer I am passionate about educating my clients on exercise and the positive impact it can have on their life. For me fitness is a lifestyle and the sense of empowerment it can provide is priceless.

    Little about Tonu

    I’ve been passionate about fitness from a young age, and have played competitive sport for as long as I can remember. I was playing tennis competitively from around 6 years old until my mid teens, travelling around Australia for National Youth Tennis competitions. During this time I was also progressing with my Football career, and after being accepted into a semi-professional team at 15 years old I made this my main focus. My football career has taken me around the world, playing professionally in Estonia for a year before making my debut in the Australian professional league with the Central Coast Mariners. In my time with the Mariners I was lucky enough to win the Lucas Neill Scholarship, and receive mentoring from Lucas who at the time was playing with the Australian football squad. During this time I decided to start focusing on a career path in the fitness industry, as well as continuing to play football semi-professionally.  I’ve now been working at Millennium Health Club for 2 years, and I have found it very rewarding being able to see the transformation in my clients both mentally and physically. Through my years of professional football I have learned to never underestimate the power of working in a team. Having a personal trainer creates a team, in which you get the best possible support, knowledge and advice you could hope for whilst exercising in a fun environment.

    Little about Kaye

    Sport, fitness and embracing a healthy lifestyle has been an integral part of my lifestyle since I was a teenager. I grew up being an "all rounder" with heavy involvement in netball, dancing, running and water polo. During my early 20's I was introduced to the sport of boxing. With 6 years of actively competing in the sport my achievements have included: -NSW state champion -National champion -3x Australian representative at the Women's World boxing championships -Captain and member of the 2014 Commonwealth Games boxing team -2016 Silver medalist at the World Championships (#2 in the world) I have been an employee of Millennium Health Club since back in 2003, giving me 13 years experience within the fitness industry. I am an advocate of maintaining a balanced and healthy lifestyle. I believe both, regular exercise, and a nutritionally balanced diet is essential for everyone. The benefits crossover from health to aesthetics to self confidence and happiness. I definitely "practice what I preach" and genuinely enjoy teaching and inspiring others to achieve their personal fitness/health goals. The top 4 factors that I believe will affect successful results are: 1. mindset (clarity on what you want to achieve) 2. Understanding the basic nutrition fundamentals (you can NEVER outrain a poor diet) 3. Enjoyment (fun during exercise) 4. Consistency (results don't come without this)

    I am the Personal Training Manager at our Waitara club and am extremely dedicated and enthusiastic as a personal trainers. I have extensive experience as personal trainer and fitness instructor in the health and fitness industry ranging from a part time involvement beginning in 1999 to full time from 2001. My love of fitness and commitment to a healthy lifestyle has always been a way of life for me.  As a child, I grew up with many opportunities to be involved in various individual and team sporting activities.  I found a love for competing in swimming and progressed through to being part of the national swim team. Netball has been another great passion that I have pursued and I continue to play at a high competition level while also now coaching and mentoring my daughters’ team. My enjoyment of sport and being healthy meant that it was natural to pursue a career where I could continue being fit and promoting health and wellness to others. I take great enjoyment of working with my clients and love that I have the opportunity and privilege to help other achieve their goals. My flexible and understanding approach helps me to build a genuine rapport and friendship with my clients – some that have lasted for years! We design comprehensive programs together that focus on individual need and targets to help them stay motivated and dedicated in developing new habits. We lead such busy lives and since becoming a mother myself, I have a greater perspective on what is really important for everyone I work with. It is my aim to encourage my clients to make exercise and healthy living fun and easy to do. Whether it is a 20 minute run, early 6am personal training session or developing a healthy diet log, it all comes down to focusing on those positive choices we can make each day that will improve and enhance our individual healthy lifestyles.

    I believe that the foundation for a fit, strong & healthy body that you can be proud to show off lies in a holistic, healthy lifestyle approach which encompasses the three pillars of Training, Nutrition and Sleep. I like to educate my clients in regards to how different types of foods effect the human body and why we should/shouldn't eat certain types of foods to achieve different outcomes. In training, I like to take a functional strength training approach. I particularly enjoy using circuit training and supersets to give a "cardio" effect whilst doing resistance training, maximising the efficiency and effectiveness of every session. I always try to encourage psychological changes in my clients as well as physical changes, as - in my experience - this is a real must for people to achieve their goals. Through confidence in one's self and a positive attitude towards diet & exercise, I believe anybody can achieve any goal they want to, no matter how challenging that goal may be!

    My passion for health and fitness lead me to a Bachelor Degree in Human Kinetics where I graduated with Honours and became a personal trainer. I believe in a multi-disciplinary approach to health and personal fitness. Sustainable results are achievable through a healthy balance of movement, nutrition, and lifestyle modifications. Exercise, nutrition and lifestyle programs are customised to each individual’s goals. Depending on your desired outcome, your commitment level, and your current challenges, I will work with you to create a realistic action plan. The best program is the one that you will consistently follow. I follow the flexibility, stability, strength and power paradigm with regards to exercise program design. This progression allows for improved posture and performance without pain or injury and ultimately builds a stronger more functional body.

    I enjoy functional training, in the sense that training should focus on ensuring people feel good and their body functions as it should throughout their life. Often we fail to recognise changes in mobility until we reach a point where there is an inability to do something or constant pain. To maintain mobility as we age we must work on it! Looking good is a side effect of training for wellness. Aim to be healthy and able, combine this with healthy eating and aesthetic goals will come. I like to vary clients sessions each week, while we may focus on the same goals, I like to throw in new and different movements and exercises to keep things varied and interesting.
