Testimonials

Please see a selection of testimonials, along with some of our members’ personal journeys with Personal Transformations below.

Renee’s Journey

Renee is without a doubt a true inspiration and leader. She will always happily take people under her wing and is always willing to lend a helping hand. Because of her struggles over the years, she displays genuine empathy for others. Renee has been a loyal member of Personal Transformations since the beginning, way beck in in 2012 and the privilege of watching her transform and grow has been amazing. Renee has tried and failed more than once, but that has only served to make her stronger. Since the start of 2017, Renee has managed to lose 18kg and counting. This time, she is determined to keep the weight off and we truly believe she will. As a trainer, i always remember the first time i met with Renee and she said “It’s ok, i don’t expect miracles. I know i will never be slim.” Fast forward to now and i can’t help but wonder if she realises that she has performed a miracle herself.

Tania’s Fitness Journey

Tania is the woman who seemingly can do it all! She’s a busy mum of two adorable boys, works full time and still finds the time to recruit her health and well-being. She wants to instill into her family the values of exercise and finding health through movement. Tania has now gotten her husband on-board and even the kids come along! She is a fantastic addition to our little community and is reluctant leader amongst the team. Everyone admires how hard she works and she is a true inspiration to all.

Alicia’s Changing Perceptions

Alicia has struggled with the “perception” people have of her when trying to enter into a healthy lifestyle. All too often, she has felt intimidated by people assuming she is really fit due to her naturally lean body shape or telling her she doesn’t need to worry about what she eats. This is a common misconception with people who are naturally slim built, but can often be a damaging assumption. Slim people need to eat healthy and exercise, just like everyone else. Alicia wants to debunk this with her testimony.

Chris on Female Trainers

Ask Chris about how he balances his family/work and training and he will honestly tell. you that is isn’t easy. Working as a tradie out in the cold or heat, it can be really easy to just give in to temptation and order a quick, easy meal. One thing that has always bugged him though, is the topic of whether men can train as effectively with a female trainer. He comes down on the side of a firm yes. As a whole, men are told that weight training is the only way to get “strong” and “big” but Chris has learnt over the years that strength without function is actually kind of pointless. He now incorporates a balanced mix into his training.

“Keely is a super talented trainer and a beautiful person inside and out. I have been training and having massages with Keely for about a year now, and LOVE it!!! She always challenges me to my max, and is always pushing me more than I could ever do on my own! Her training sessions are always fun and varied and you never quite know what she has planned next!  At first I was training to prepare for my wedding, but continued with it after as I learned to love the pain but more the results! (lost 3 inches). She makes me laugh during every session and I always leave with a smile on my face! Her advice and knowledge is invaluable and she helps me feel healthy both in body and in mind. I cannot recommend her highly enough.”

Olivia Luff

“Great range of classes to choose from. Always a great workout with each class being different and can be a bit of laugh at times. Also good to see some other guys coming along and having a crack. Oh and the trainer does an OK job as well.”

Aaron Messenger

“I trained with Keely and survived… Just.  Started the session with all smiles and friendly banter. By the end I was vomiting lactic acid.. and at one point I could barely walk in a straight line – Keely knows just how much you can take and pushes you to that limit whilst keeping your form perfect at all times to prevent injures. She is tough, but a very safe and fantastic trainer. That first session will be one you’ll always remember for those wanting to train different and be challenged. Thanks Keely!”

Abs Din

“I joined Keely and the team in May to begin my transformation. All the staff are lovely and willing to help all the time. They’ve helped me correct my technique and given me the confidence and knowledge to be able to do workouts at home when I can’t attend the gym. All the people that attend the classes with are full encouragement which makes getting along to classes easy and fun.”

Karina Campbell

“Keely’s professionalism and beautiful caring nature shines right throughout the studio. Her team know each client very well so each class no matter who the trainer is feels personalised. The care also goes beyond the class or PT session with nutritional and outside networking contacts making sure her clients get the complete mental and physical care needed.”

Kirsty O'Connor

“Last year, I tried a few of Keely’s barre and yoga classes…I loved it but kept making excuses about finding the time and that I couldn’t make a commitment due to my workload as a teacher and a business owner. I am so happy to have finally made the commitment for my health and wellbeing. Keely and Dan run some amazing classes and are really supportive. In just a month I’ve seen some changes in my body. I even get super excited when I can complete an exercise with precise form which I couldn’t complete the week before. Thanks Keely and Dan!!!”
