Favourite quote: I will push you beyond the limits your never thought possible, paying attention to what is achievable. Together we will discover the balance between hard work and an enjoyable journey

What inspired you to be a PT? I would've loved to have had a mentor when I went through my own health issues and now I've become a coach to other people, to help them improve their fitness levels, to achieve their health and wellbeing goals.

Experience: I am an enthusiastic and creative personal trainer and group fitness instructor with more than 4 years experience working with individuals, as well as small and large groups of participants with different fitness levels and ages.

Why train with you? I have a holistic approach to health through movement, strength, control, cardio and healthy eating. I go beyond a good technique to make sure you get the right balance between a fun activity you can look forward to and challenges that make you progress and be proud of yourself.

Something we don't know about you: I have studied 6 languages besides my native tongue - Spanish.

I can't help but  recommend Juan if you are looking for a  great trainer and motivator who is  intuitive, truly believes in you, and who is passionate about his work and helping you achieve your individual goals!"

LIMAN LEE

Clients say... "I really enjoy the training with Liman because I’ve seen improvements in my core, I’m progressively lifting heavier weights and most importantly, learning the correct technique for every exercise. I recommend Liman to anyone who is looking to improve their fitness."

Favourite quote: Character is the ability to carry through on a resolution, long after the emotion with which the resolution was made has passed.

What inspired you to be a PT? My passion for mentoring others to achieve their goals in life.

Experience: My commitment to the fitness industry started in 2010 with just six young boys in Melbourne's Princes Park and a crazy idea to found an American Football team! With an enormous amount of work, and a bit of luck, we made this dream happen. The team we founded back then is now known as The Melbourne University Royals Gridiron Club. In 2012 we achieved our first Victorian Championship, which we used as a stepping stone to branch out and grow our Women's team, The Melbourne University Chargers. Due to my knowledge of the game and my ability to educate players in athletic development, I was nominated as the Offensive Coordinator, and Strength and Conditioning Coach of the Melbourne Royals Women's team in 2013. My position on the team helped to facilitate my growth as a well rounded trainer, as I learned many valuable lessons, such as how to be patient, understanding and encouraging, realising that everybody learns in different ways and at different speeds. In 2015 I decided to become officially registered as a PT, and that led me to opening my own training studio at home. Shortly after this I was fortunate to have been offered a position with the Aqualink Gym Team.

Why train with you? My clients must be prepared to feel challenged and work hard. They can expect to be educated, humbled by their weaknesses, and to develop new levels of discipline. My clients must also be prepared to feel stronger than they’ve ever felt, and more confident and empowered in their life. I’ll provide you with the tools to succeed, and you’ll learn how to apply these to set yourself up for life while, hopefully, inspiring others along the way.

Something we don't know about you: I am  an IVF baby.

MARCIA BARRY

Clients say... "Thank you for all your encouragement and support. You  made us realise the importance of  moving and keeping busy to get fit."

Favourite quote:  If you can't fly, then run. If you can't run, then walk. If you can't walk, then crawl. But whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward. – Martin Luther King Jr.

What inspired you to be a PT? I believe in the power of health and fitness, and I love seeing the positive impact it has on my clients.

Experience: I have more than five years’ experience in the gym and group fitness environment. This has taught me about  people and their capacity to grow and overcome obstacles.

Why train with you? If you want a PT who  provides a positive experience, and will help you be the best you can be, that’s me!

 

JOSH WU

 

Favourite quote: Move well to live well. 

What inspired you to be a PT? I love being part of other people’s fitness journey, and seeing them grow and become a better version of themselves.

Experience: I became a PT two years ago, after graduating from university; and to-date, I continue learning from various coaches about different ways to train.

Why train with you? We'll focus on building you from the ground up, forming a strong foundation, and turning training from a routine into a lifestyle. 

Something we don't know about you: I love travelling and experiencing different cultures, as it helps me better understand people from all walks of life.
