Personal Training Success Stories
- Inger Coate
Six years ago I started to put on a lot of weight. I tried everything and spent thousands of dollars trying to get my body back but nothing worked until I met Tim and Vernon at Fit for Living!! Through training with Vernon I have gone from being unmotivated to do any kind of exercise to literally running around Geelong and loving it. I simply can’t believe some of the things I can do now in training. I’ve got my confidence and my life back! I can’t wait to see what the next six months of training brings. Thanks so much to Fit for Living for helping me get out of the hole.
Before joining Fit for Living I had a hand and forearm injury for 8 years that took a big toll on me physically and mentally. I could not participate in sports or activities, I lost my confidence and motivation, and have been in and out of work because of it. Then my best friend brought me a Fit for Living program and gave me the motivation and encouragement I was lacking for 8 years. Now I play sport 3 times a week and do PT sessions 2-3 days a week, because of her and the Fit for Living crew.
I have trained with Nathan, Tim and Genna and between all 3 of them I have achieved more than what I thought I was capable of, which is exactly what I wanted out of joining Fit for Living. I have dropped massive cm’s over my total body (ie. hips 96cm – 83cm) and gained muscle and fitness that allow me to do everything I’m doing right now. I started at 64.8 kg and I weigh in now at 57kg. To anyone who is sitting on the fence and considering joining, I say just do it, no excuses. It is hard work but the result will make you feel unstoppable!
Fit for living has been the perfect support I needed to helping me achieve my health and fitness goals. A busy lifestyle of working Mum provided many excuses to not put health and fitness high on my priority list. It is easy to put the needs of the children, my work, my husband and family and friends before myself. Finally I have a holistic approach to nutrition and exercise and can fit healthy eating and exercise into my busy lifestyle. Sam, my Personal Trainer, has provided excellent support, education and encouragement. The flexible training hours and locations were perfect for my needs. Tim’s nutrition education enabled me to have an educated approach to eating rather than dieting. Finally I feel like I have got all the elements correct, they work and I am super happy with my new level of fitness.
Maddi has been one of Fit for Living’s star members. She’s so committed to working out hard, sticking to eating the right foods and to having a positive mindset. Maddi was equal winner of one of our 66-day challenges and Fit for Living’s ‘Member of the Year’. She’s reached her goal weight and lost nearly 20 kilos in the process over 6 months! Her fitness and strength is through the roof and she’s loving her new body and lifestyle.
At 16 years of age Daniel developed Crohn’s disease and really struggled to exercise as a result. Daniel participated in a local transformation challenge, guided by Tim as his trainer, and competed against over 400 people to see who could achieve the best body and lifestyle transformation. In that time, Daniel lost an amazing 24 kilos in 12 weeks and through the nutrition and exercise advice he received, he managed to sustain his training regime for the first time since developing a chronic illness. His transformation also helped keep his symptoms at bay. To top it all off, he came 2nd overall in the challenge!
Steve tackled one of Fit for Living’s short intense challenges to help shed body fat and increase his lean muscle.
The result? He managed to lose 8 kilos and increased his strength in all areas by lifting weights, which he’d never done on his own before. Not only that, but Steve went cold turkey on alcohol and realised how foggy his brain had been when drinking. Now he has a lot more energy and 4 months later he’s enjoying his ongoing training at Fit for Living and his NEW, energetic lifestyle.
Before he joined Fit for Living, Tye was heading towards playing Rugby for Australia. However, he went into party mode and developed some habits which took him off track, and he got dropped from the team. After losing fitness and his motivation and putting on weight, he decided to take on a 12 month Personal Training program with Fit for Living. In his first 16 weeks with us he lost 16 kilos and gained his fitness and strength back! Now he’s on track to taking the life path he really wants.
Peter used to love staying up late at night playing video games and eating take-away. He was unhappy with his life and decided to try a Personal Training program with Fit for Living. Peter changed his lifestyle to include doing meal prep for the first time in his life, and he followed the structured training and nutrition program laid out by his trainer. Since he started Fit For Living’s PT program Peter has lost 45kg, has turned his life around to eating healthy and is feeling fantastic!
Kelly looks and feels incredible since doing a 12 week program with Fit For Living. Kel lost 11kg in just 12 weeks.
Kelly had never been successful with sticking to an exercise program before taking on a Personal Training and Nutrition program with Fit For Living. She was hesitant at first start something new because of her experiences of failing in the past.
However, within just 12 weeks she lost 11 kilos, improved her fitness levels, her mood and confidence; and years later she continues a healthy routine.
Rhys used to feel sluggish and had no energy! He lost 10kg in 12 weeks, and now he feels awesome! Since doing training with us he has been employed in a top notch position where he can take on lots more as well as feeling fantastic about his new improved body!

I just wanted to say thank you for your encouragement during all my training sessions with you. My fitness level has increased dramatically since the start of training 2 years ago. I am now able to do fun runs, which I never thought I could do in a million years, and have now set myself the challenge to compete in a mini triathlon next year. Without your determination to push me through I would never have achieved the results I have achieved so far. Thanks for the inspiration!

Tim and his capable, highly motivated instructors, Ryan and Sam have made a welcome difference in my training program. I’m a Myotherapist with a very busy practice, with people working for me and loaded with teaching responsibilities, I need to be fit, injury free and able to handle my daily stress loads. Even though I am a trained PT I still need the motivation and encouragement from others who really enjoy what they do and are dedicated to delivering a quality service. Fit For Living trainers tick all the boxes for me. The training sessions are fun (I won’t do them if they’re not), welcoming, challenging and directed for each person to achieve their goals. I have had a lot of trainers in the past. I have found Tim’s team to be highly professional, which means they’re on time and ready for the session, they have planned what they’re going to do and they are on the lookout for any extra assistance or encouragement where needed. Ryan, Sam and Tim are all positive people and they expect you to keep your end of the training agreement.”
Thanks again I enjoyed and benefitted from every minute!
