Waistline I Needed to Shrink

I tried to do it by myself, without success. For the last 18 months of training with BPPT, I've dropped 12cm on the waist. The difference was committing to someone else that I would achieve the result.

Julie


Highly Recommend

I never thought I would be able to. I decided I need to be fitter, but it's the trainers supporting me that have made me a regular and consistent exerciser, and I'm now able to run.

Katarina


Really Pleased With The Results

I wanted to feel more athletic, and after a year of training, my body shape has changed. Overall I am very happy with the changes. The difference is having someone drive you in personal training, and stretch you beyond what you think you can do.

Craig


I didn’t want to be your typical guy with a beer gut in his 40’s.

I started because 12 months ago I was conscious of my belly fat, high cholesterol at 6.2, high blood pressure and my doctor said to start exercise. Amazing results with BPPT lost 10cm on my waist by training 5 times a week and giving up the booze.

Anil


I did 100kms on a bike!

I have a lot more energy, feel stronger, lost weight. I didn't think I'd be able to do it, but I'm glad I gave it a go. BPPT have approachable coaches- I can ask them anything.

Pete


I want to die the fittest man in the graveyard

It’s good to feel strong enough to do things. After 10 years of training at BPPT, I like being able to lift things. I want to die the fittest man in the graveyard. Training gives you a great sense of accomplishment and you forget your worries.

Ross


Anthony knows what he's talking about

This training studio has- no egos, no muscle men, no tattoos, love coming here, relaxed atmosphere and Anthony really knows what he's talking about.

Jenene


If you don’t look after this body, where are you going to live?

As a Type 1 Diabetic, I have to keep myself well to combat the loss of muscle and fitness with the ageing process. If you don’t look after this body, where are you going to live?

Dom


I lost 10kg

Different to other gyms, lost 10kg and have gone from running 2km to triathlon distances. The recent triathlon I finished thinking I still had some petrol left. Now taking up cycling. Myzone delivers feedback with points and keeps the group motivated and competitive.

Cyrus Dickie


A really fun journey

I have bulked up with muscle, yet lost weight, and I enjoy the HIIT. I do love the tracking of diet, weight, heart rate and fat percentage. BPPT keeps me accountable, as recovery is as important as the workout itself. Sally kept pushing me to do the triathlon... which was really great. It's been a really fun journey.

Terri


No-one yells at me!

BPPT makes it really easy, working with my ability level, yet stretching me at the same time, PLUS no-one yells at me!

Kay


Have to include movement

It's alarming how sedentary we've become. It's a dangerous trend we all need to confront and include movement in our lifestyles.

Linda


Keeps you on track...

Best Practice PT's always been really welcoming over the last 12 years, fits my lifestyle, with a focus on wellbeing and a balanced approach. They keep you on track.

Andrew


Has Built My Core Strength

As a keen tennis player, I had cardio fitness covered. It had been too long since I was weight training, I welcome the training here to build my core and shoulders and overall strength.

Graham


Keeps Stress Levels Down

Exercise routine breeds resilience to stress. After 10 years with BPPT, I have developed a routine of working hard a few times a week, which keeps my stress levels down. Everyone's positive here.

Sandra


Myzone is a great motivator

Myzone is a great motivator and I really enjoy the community of group training. Best Practice PT keeps us all accountable.

Leisa


I like Safe Exercise

I was hurt by an inexperienced trainer before and because I have a bad back, and not much exercise in recent years, I like Best Practice as it is always safe training and closely supervised.

Diago


Fun Team Building Exercise

Getting my team to work out together gets them away from work pressures, and was a really fun corporate training day.

Nadeen


Accountability works...

Because where I fall over is motivation. Myzone gives me a sense of positive accomplishment.

Katarina Owczarek


Although I was quite fit when I started with Best Practice Personal Training, I was amazed with the change in my body after committing to a few sessions a week. I just needed that extra push to go a little harder. The sessions provide a good mix of aerobic fitness and weights training – I could literally feel myself getting fitter, stronger and more energised after each session!!! The gym is always clean and the equipment first class. By working with the Best Practice Personal Training crew I know the time I spend training is maximised to help me achieve my goals.

I would like to pass on my thanks to you in helping my general state of health since I have been coming to your sessions.  As you know, 2007 was to be my year of health and I am certainly feeling a lot healthier this year than last year. Although juggling work and a toddler has at times made it difficult for me to train as regularly as I would like, I have certainly noticed a difference in the 6 months I have been training with you.  Most importantly, I have found I am having a restful night’s sleep and as a side benefit I seem to be fitting in to a smaller size.  Not sure if they are making pants bigger these days or whether I have trimmed up but I’m happy either way!  I also enjoy coming to your sessions as you act as my conscience to help me be true to my goals – a true personal trainer.  Years ago I used a personal trainer at a bigger gym and although she was a friendly person and very knowledgeable it was more impersonal and therefore didn’t seem to motivate me as much. Thanks to you and Jeames and keep up the innovation! Kind regards

I couldn’t have done all this without the help of Best Practice. I think the biggest reason for the success is because I was made accountable and responsible for my health and you gave me all the tools required to do this. The goal setting was the first pivotal step in starting this journey and the practical way in which this was explained to me really helped, I also loved making a creative poster I looked at every morning and still look at every day. I didn’t reach my goal weight but am happier with my body than I have ever been and I think that is the biggest battle I have won. Giving me the tools to stop smoking is something I will forever be grateful for as this in turn helped two dear loved ones stop the habit too. The enthusiasm of everyone at Best Practice has ignited a passion in health and fitness for me and 4 months after my last session with BP I am still going strong. I still go to the gym and actually make it a priority in my life because making excuses would lead me back to where I started. Best Practice is the only business in which I can honestly say that they do not want my ‘repeat’ business. I say this because I can’t imagine Anthony would be happy with me if I came back to him and said that I need to loose 12 kilo’s and stop smoking again, because this would mean that we both failed. I truly felt that my success was deemed as their success and the same went for my failures too. The investment I made when I signed up with Best Practice is genuinely one that will give me a lifetime of returns as they gave me the tools to continue on my health and fitness journey for the rest of my life. For the first time in my life I feel in control of my body and am actually happy with it. Now, when I work out it isn’t to lose fat or weight, but it is to retain what I have worked so hard for. That is the most liberating experience of all. I wish you and your business every success and look forward to seeing how it will evolve. Best regards

Best Practice has provided me with the support to start my weight loss journey, achieve my set weight goal, and now support my fitness journey. They gave me support and welcome encouragement to come to their group training sessions and also expand the sessions I went to, including my PT sessions, challenge my body and mind to do things i wouldn’t normally have done and have so much fun and a bit of a laugh. During that time they slowly educated me and changed my eating and drinking habits with their relentless efforts and endless information on “facts and furphy” on good food nutrition, meal plans and calorie counts. There is also the array of “mini challenges” within the “end goal challenge” they have, and hold you accountable for in a way you find yourself wanting to make those mini goals. Because of their support and personal interaction with me I understand why they have a client base of normal good friendly everyday people who have been there for longer than I have and just make their own fitness part of their weekly routine with best practice.

James QH


Before beginning a personal training programme with Best Practice Personal Training I was sluggish and unhappy with how I looked. Anthony and Jeames have since guided me, encouraged and pushed me toward my goals. Their incredible knowledge about physical fitness coupled with their genuine care for and interest in their clients means that I go back twice a week secure in knowing that I will be well looked after. Today I have more energy, I look considerably slimmer (I still have some more work to do, but I know I will get there), and I have muscle definition that is really starting to look great.

I have been training with Anthony and the team from Best Practice for sometime now and am absolutely delighted with the level of fitness that I have acquired – to the point of participating in a 4 km fun run with great enjoyment! 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. They have been able to think through the mechanics of what was causing the problem and then work on strengthening the appropriate muscles to remove the source of the pain rather than providing a temporary ‘quick fix’. They combine expertise, professionalism and talent with a great sense of humour, endless encouragement and a wide variety of activities that are good fun. I have exercised with other training studios in the past and there is simply no comparison. Best Practice Personal Training lives up to its name – it truly does offer best practice in the area of personal training and you enjoy yourself at the same time. Well worth the investment of time and money for the benefits and increased enjoyment it brings to all areas of your life.

I just want to say thanks to Jeames , Anthony and Matt for their part in preparing me for the Inca Trail Hike to Machu Picchu in South Amercia that I recently undertook. The hike is a 45 km section of the original trail built by the Incas in the 15th century . It is at high altitude , remote , in rugged terrain , steep in parts and with literally thousands of steps along the way. About 5 months before , Jeames designed for me a strength programme with these conditions in mind and this along with 2/3 cardio sessions each week ensured I was prepared as possible for the challenge . The toughest part of the hike for me was a continual ascent for 1200 metres to a height of 4200 metres – the decrease of oxygen in the air impacted greatly – and I became pretty breathless. On the last day we had 13km of steep descent – mostly steep stairs – I never thought I would see the day when I would actually thank Jeames for making me do all those step ups, but I did on that day! Training for those months with a specific goal in mind kept me very focused and the sense of achievement after completing the walk is undescribable. Setting a physical challenge and training for it is an awesome way to keep motivated to exercise.

As a couple whose lives are greatly impacted by mental illness, we often find ourselves neglecting our physical health, and struggling with issues such as low energy and poor motivation. We’ve both benefited greatly by participating in group cardio and personal training with Anthony. His interest and training in psychology, along with his enthusiasm and skills as a physical trainer, have pushed us to challenge ourselves and achieve goals such as weight loss, increased energy and better nutrition. We’ve both found that exercise has a positive effect on mood, relieving symptoms of depression and anxiety, and his flexibility and willingness to work with other health professionals has allowed us to train safely and effectively with him despite the risks posed by various physical side effects of psychiatric medications. Although we were not particularly active before we started to train with Anthony, we now both find ourselves missing the exercise when we are unable to go to classes or exercise at home. This is a huge step for us and a very positive one!
