Hear From Our Clients

I have been training with Coastal Bodies since July 2012. My whole life has changed. I have lost 18 kilos and 20 cm off my waist. I can grab a size 12 off the rack and I’m not done yet. My trainer knows just how hard to push me and has helped me become a new person. I’ve never been a fan of exercise and would use any excuse to get out of it. When you know someone is waiting for you it’s a great motivator and once the weight starts coming off, you want to keep going. I loved…

Having just celebrated my 45th birthday, and feeling very overweight and unfit it was time to tackle the dreaded “middle age spread”. Having tried and failed miserably over the past few years I decided to embark on a different approach this time round. I contacted Dan at Coastal Bodies, who encouraged me to come in for a free consultation. What first struck me was the lack of pretentious clients and trainers, instead what greeted me was a friendly, non-judgemental environment. Yes the first Session with Brian was hard, and yes I was sore afterwards the difference being this time I…

I started training at Coastal Bodies in March 2012 to ‘get fit’. Not only am I now in the best shape of my life – I have gained control over my emotions, my health and my life. Being able to run 20km non stop is amazing – however for me, learning that I can control how I feel by training has literally changed my life. I have gained a lifelong friend in my trainer and eternally grateful for the support and dedication he has shown to support me in smashing each goal we set. I am strong, healthy and feel…

I had tried all the diets under the sun, you name it i’d done it, shake, juice, cabbage, Atkins, cereal to mention a few. When returning home from work I noted a sign outside the Coastal Bodies studio mentioning an 8 week weight loss challenge. I checked out the website and within minutes had signed up for the face to face “Coogee 8 Week Challenge”. On arrival I was greeted by friendly staff members and introduced to all the participating members. The trainers were professional and in control at all times giving me the confidence that I was in a…

Dan and his Coastal Bodies team have helped me completely transform not only my body shape but also my attitude to exercise, eating and a healthy lifestyle. A great training environment along with the knowledge and professionalism of the trainers ensure I get the best results and constant motivation. The energy I have now keeps me feeling younger, fitter and healthier than ever

Kevin Frazier

I always wanted to lose weight but was not really finding the right way to go about it and when I realized that it is more than a diet it really is a change in habits and lifestyle only then was I able to start setting up a good support network for myself as I wanted to be in an environment where I didn’t feel I was being judged. I found that with Coastal bodies. I needed to lose a lot of weight and change my bad eating habits and I knew it wasn’t just exercising that was going to…

Debbie Dworkin

I am a 25 year old professional who has been training with Coastal Bodies for 12 months. Before I started training I led a relatively inactive lifestyle, thought getting fit was all too hard and was generally unhealthy. I started training with Coastal Bodies because training one-on-one meant I could automatically conquer my two biggest hurdles to getting fit; commitment and embarrassment. Having a trainer waiting for you means you can’t skip a session and they develop programs which are achievable so you don’t look like a fool doing things which are so difficult that you just give up. I…

Cain Beckett

I was hesitant to start a personal training program because I was always one of those people who falsely believed that personal trainers were only for the rich and somewhat a waste of time – boy was I wrong! My first session was truly horrible – in the best way possible. You worked my body so hard that I’m sure it went into overload. The exercises you had me perform awoke so many muscles and nerves in my body that have been asleep for years. I hadn’t sweated or breathed so heavily in years. After walking away from that session…

Tania Miriam

When I made the transition from uni to full-time work in an office job, I gained 9kg that I just couldn’t lose. I had no time to exercise and my weight was getting out of control. Every week I noticed my clothes getting tighter and tighter and I had to buy a new suit every six months, progressively going up a size each time. The thought of getting a personal trainer never appealed to me because I thought they were reserved for gym junkies and I didn’t even like exercising at the gym! My previous fitness commitment took the form…
