I was a Personal Trainer and Personal Training Company Manager for fifteen years before starting my own Southbank, Docklands, Melbourne and now Barwon Heads based ‘mobile’ Personal Training business on October 1, 2012. We aspired to be the best-known premium level mobile Personal Training company in Victoria and I feel that we have now achieved that mantle from a service perspective.
In 1997 I completed a four year full-time degree, achieving a Bachelor of Applied Science in Human Movement and a Bachelor of Teaching from Deakin University. My tertiary qualifications combined with now twenty years hands-on experience put me in a select group of elite personal trainers with such high levels of industry expertise, qualifications and experience. Likewise my team have and always will have completed a similar University/Tertiary degree. We are the only Personal Training business that stands by this claim in Victoria – something that I am immensely proud of.
My specialty is in strength and conditioning, sport specific training, speed development, cardio, technique and general fitness. I have a University degree in Exercise Science and Human Movement and away from work I play soccer at semi professional level and have also pursued a professional career overseas.
I have been involved in several coaching roles most notably with VFL club Werribee as a strength and conditioning coach.
My passion is guiding, motivating and ultimately seeing all individuals achieve their own health and fitness goals which may include weight loss, lifestyle balance, strength, aerobic fitness, flexibility, improved posture and muscle tone through education, teaching and training. Having been with Just In Time for over two years now, I am excited about my promotion to Assistant Manager and helping our team continue to grow and develop.
I’m Luke and my aspiration for all of my clients, as well as myself, is personal development. Having completed a degree in Psychology at Monash University, with units covering sports and exercise psychology, personality and behavioural studies, I am always keen to apply the best techniques to create effective behavioural change.
Since graduating, through several years of full-time personal training, my passion developed towards anatomy and physiology. Due to this, I am currently in my third year back at study, completing a double degree in Osteopathy and Health Science at RMIT. Incorporating rehabilitative work, postural improvements and an ever improving knowledge of the musculoskeletal system as a whole into my training approach, I now feel fully equipped to make long-lasting, positive changes in people’s health, wellbeing and lives.
Around study and work, I thoroughly enjoy my own physical challenges and compete in squash at a state level. As development is always a balance, I enjoy a variety of sports, catching up with mates and several other interests (some unhealthy I’m sure!) in my spare time.
Whilst I thoroughly enjoy all training sessions with clients, what makes me happiest is to hear their results. I love seeing real, positive changes to their lives and their overall well-being.
Hi, I’m Tessa and I have a degree in Exercise Science and Human Performance. I am originally from the US but have now called Australia home for the last three years. My main focus in the health field has always been strength and conditioning and the psychological aspects of sport; however, throughout my degree I also studied injury prevention as well as rehabilitation and functional movement.
Outside of my studies I have always worked in an environment with all types of people. While running summer camps I would work with children ranging in age from four years old to seventeen years old developing hand-eye coordination, teamwork and self-confidence through sport and outdoor activities.
Through my own adventures I have played softball at University in the US as well as professionally in the European league. I have also had the opportunity to work with the German national softball team as an assistant. Once moving to Australia I have now shifted my personal focus to rugby union.
With Just In Time I am looking to develop my skills within health and fitness even further and ultimately to help others achieve their goals through a holistic approach to health.
I’m Tom and I have always been passionate about facilitating behaviour change and helping people improve their well-being. Nothing makes me happier than seeing people set out with short or long-term goals and then achieving them (no matter how small or big the goal).
I have completed an Exercise and Sports Science degree at Deakin University and am an accredited Exercise Scientist with ESSA. I have a very strong interest and experience in the Strength and Conditioning field, due to undertaking an Internship with Rowville Sports Academy from 2016 until mid-2017. My strengths are in improving general health and fitness, mobility, balance, linear and lateral speed, agility, jump and land mechanics, muscular tone, muscular strength and muscular power.
Apart from being a Personal Trainer, I am also a basketball coach at Rossbourne School. I practice what I preach and I am always completing my own Strength and Conditioning sessions in my down time. This helps me personally develop my skills as a Personal Trainer and improve my own football performance as I play in the VAFA for St Bedes Mentone Tigers (A Grade Division).
I would love to help you achieve your goals!
My passion lies in improving an individuals overall well-being, with an emphasis on strength and conditioning, rehabilitation, general fitness and also progressive behavioural change.
I have completed a Bachelor in Exercise Science (Sports Practice) at Victoria University, while also both playing football and being a High Performance Assistant at the Williamstown Football Club in the VFL.
I pride myself in educating, motivating and caring about each and every client. With a smart, fun and realistic approach these factors will play a role in guiding each individual, so that together we can reach their desired goals.
Hi, I’m Sam and I have completed an Exercise and Sports Science degree at Deakin University in Geelong and have previously worked as a strength and conditioning coach with multiple sporting teams and schools as well as a Personal Trainer. This has lead my fitness related strengths to be in the strength and conditioning field, as well as the ability to alter body composition.
I have also worked for Deakin University as a Student Ambassador, educating high school students and running workshops based around sports science. This has led me to a passion for educating, I enjoy training clients but I love educating them around healthy practices to improve their general well-being.
I have an extensive sporting past playing Australian football and basketball but now my efforts are focused on helping others achieve their health related goals.
Hi, I am Rowan and I have completed a degree in Exercise and Sport Science at Australian Catholic University (ACU). Throughout my experience at University and most recently personal training; I have found a passion in human movement, strength and conditioning, the psychology of people and general health.
As a personal trainer, I try to encourage general wellbeing, the correct technique, client’s improving and learning new activities as well as promoting a positive lifestyle.
Outside of Just in Time, I play Cricket and Basketball locally in Ringwood and Doncaster. I also coach junior football at the Templestowe Junior Football Club and coach Cricket at the Ainslie Park Cricket Club. I have been involved in sport for most of my life and have seen the importance of teamwork and effective communication in order to get the best out of any situation.
With Just in Time I will work with you to achieve your goals and hope to get the best out of each and every person that I train, whether it be physically, mentally or emotionally.
