About

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! I won’t lie, Covid knocked us around for sure but we are still here and with renewed vigor too!

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.

Anthony, Sally and Joao have made amazing changes to my fitness and overall health with their positive approach to training and their diet and lifestyle advice. This is far beyond the basic expectation of a gym and personal trainer. Thanks all.

The team at Best Practice PT are incredibly supportive no matter what your age, size or level of fitness. No crazy gym bunnies here - real people with real results. Great also with rehab after injury. Get my vote 💯 %

THese guys are great. I hated sport as a kid (and still do) but Anthony and Sally at BPPT gave me a habit of regular excersise that has made a huge difference to my life. I've visited other gyms to see if I could fit in and although they all swear black and blue that everyone is welcome and they... cater to all, none have come close to offering the style of service that BPPT do.read more

I’ve trained with Best Practice for a number of years and couldn’t recommend the team more highly. Their approach is professional and always focused on my individual needs and capabilities. I’ve met a number of goals that I set myself including a 280k walk thanks to the fitness that I have... achieved with Best Practice. I am very grateful to Anthony, Sally and Jaoa for their expertise and support.read more

Anthony and his team were patient in baselining my physical capabilities, talking me through the process, tying diet and exercise together, and keeping me from overreaching (something I tend to do). They kept each session intense and, as a result, I developed a new long-term approach to my health... and fitness. I relocated about 7 months after working with this team and their coaching has guided me for the three years since. I highly recommend engaging with this group if you want to drive changes in your life.read more

Anthony and his team are true professionals. I really appreciate their approach to fitness which is a holistic view. Fitness is so much more than just the body, it is also the mind. If you are looking for a point of difference, this is your business. Well Done Best Practice - a legit fitness centre.
