Dr Linda Williams – Business Owner

“I’ve really loved coming here over the years. 12 years in fact! It has helped keep me on track in a way that I wouldn’t have been able to do by myself. It has been a a really good combination of keeping mefocussed on all the things I need to be really healthy including strength, flexibility and cardio fitness. And it has always been very welcoming too.”

Dr Graeme Macdonald – Associate Professor

I’ve been training at Best Practice Personal Training for over 10 years now. The training we do focuses on my goals, with an emphasis on exercising safely. Boot camp training mentality isn’t for me as I’m over 60 now and  certainly don’t want to get injured. The Best Practice Personal trainers have all spent time getting to know me and what I am capable of doing. Its a great feeling to set and achieve a goal and I find that the physical exertion gives me a self-confidence that spills over into other aspects of my life.

Fiona Greene – Owner of Luv & Co. Real Estate

“I highly recommend this business, I found them to knowledgeable, supportive, organised and with great systems in place like My Zone and their own App. Other words I would used to describe them are fun, passionate and nurturing
It was such an enjoyable experience and I got great results in a short period of time after some education around nutrition too.”

Kay Herse – Professional Educator

“Best Practice has been able to transition me to online training so smoothly. What follows is my feelings about Best Practice whether we are working face to face, like we did pre Covid 19 and also now! The Best Practice approach is professional and motivating and incorporates very high levels of expertise in the fitness area. All the team are very knowledgeable about the mechanics of the body and they have devised a program for me that eliminated a significant neck problem that many visits to a physiotherapist had not achieved”

Dom Harper – IT Professional

“My goal when I joined BP was to “not die young” and I figured the path to achieving that was to regain an enjoyment for participating in physical activities. Any previous gym I had been to I felt like just another number, a “sheep in the crowd” but with Best Practices intimate and personal gym and class sizes I feel part of a community….”

Terri Macchion – HR Specialist

“Anthony and the team at Best Practice made it so easy for me to start doing exercise activity after many years of doing nothing at all. I now have much more energy, feeling healthier, more flexible and I can see my body changing over time. They get my highest recommendation. And they are still helping as normal but now all online. They haven’t missed a beat!”

Another unknown year begins…….

This picture was done as a bit of a laugh back last year when everyone was saying that Covid, at least in Qld was over. To be clear, I never really believed that but at the same time didn’t dream that we would be told to wear masks in our own private car either. Anyway, as they say in the classics “it is what it is”. That saying I think glosses over what most people are actually feeling and that is undoubtedly a sense of uneasiness if not straight up anxiety. It is true that uncertainty is one of the big stressors for a lot of people. 2021 is kicking off with as much of that as we have probably ever seen in our life times, at least as a society anyway.  Personal experiences are another matter. One of the tenets of good mental health is the ability to focus on those things you can control. There is absolute futility in worrying about those things you can’t, but that doesn’t stop us from doing it at times. When I start to feel like this I go back to the most basic of functions we perform and that is breathing. It is the one sure way to get back to the here and now. Try it right now. Think only of your breath, inhaling slowly, feeling your diaphragm expand, hold it and then slowly but surely expel that air. Continue this for at least one minute. I would be surprised if you don’t instantly feel better, more grounded and more in […]

The Why Of Best Practice Revisited……

There is no doubt that Covid 19 has impacted us all in some way or another. No one is unscathed. Some of the changes have been actually good, as we learn to think differently using our ability to adapt. But some of the fallout has clearly not been good, as I consider those who have had businesses devastated and literally livelihoods taken away. We should also not forget to mention of course, all those who have lost their lives. I figured it was time to share some thoughts of mine as I reassess my life, my business and my future in this world we find ourselves. Best Practice started pretty much off the cuff back in 2005. When I say ‘off the cuff’ it is because there wasn’t a lot of business planning per se. It was more like, “I want to be fit, healthy and robust for the rest of my life and I reckon others do too. If I help others I am more likely to stay on that path myself” That was it, that was the inspiration. I guess it was kind of selfish when you get down to it, but putting self interest aside I have always been a natural coach and helping others something that I was drawn to. Besides the aforementioned motivation, I had studied all aspects of human performance including, exercise science, coaching, nutrition, physiology, anatomy, motor learning, biomechanics and psychology across 3 university degrees. But despite all that, I was still wanting to know more. You see, this whole field was super […]
