Our Story

Our focus is you.

We focus on Safe, High-Quality Fitness Training delivered by University Qualified Coaches, in a Holistic Way to Maximise your Results.

Best Practice Personal Training has been operating since 2005. This fact alone stands out as the average personal trainer lasts about 9 months in the industry after becoming ‘qualified’. Also, most personal training studios, in fact over 90%, do not make it to 10 years. Not trying to be cocky, but I guess we are doing something right!

Our Approach

It's all about safe training & feeling better.

This is a lifestyle change and there are definitely no quick fixes. It is going to take considerable effort but no success is ever a straight line. Life can be messy.

The most important thing is that you are determined to make your life better knowing that some effort put in now, will reap rewards for the long term. We are more than ready to help you on your journey.
