Health & Fitness can seem very confusing, and going about it 'wrong' can have detrimental effects over time
Hiring one of our coaches will not only speed up your progress, and minimize long-term discomfort you also have a friend on your side.
During the sessions we will continuously asses your progress and change the programming accordingly.
The training modalities will be similar to the group fitness classes but better suited to your current capacity
A professional relationship
Getting to know you as a person is fundamental to a fruitful future, we have to figure out what makes you tick.
As we do more talking we get to know more about each-other and a level of trust will be built over time.
As a coach you can easily see how much the client can handle and we can change the weight, repetition and exercises so that you can push just a little harder.
Also, we can change the environment in such a way that you get challenged to your max capacity if needed
Adapted to you
Everybody is different and certainly, everybody has different areas they should focus on.
Maybe you didn't sleep well or you need a release because of a fight with your partner, our session will change accordingly.
Chosen time & day
Do a session with us on a day and time of your choosing.
Maybe you want to be energized before work or let loose on a saturday morning, our schedules are very flexible.
No need to be afraid of looking like a fool when you fail, it's just you and us. We try and create a safe environment for you to challenge yourself.
Also, if you want to share personal information this will stay between you and us/
Because we are constantly watching the chance of something going wrong is slim.
Of course the risk of injury should always be low but it can never be completely avoided.
When doing personal training we will be lifting heavy but with a watchful eye

Sensei Kiley Baker has been training in Martial Arts since 1995 and teaching since 1998. She was the only full time instructor in the City Dojo under Shihan George Kolovos for several years. She obtained her San Dan (Third Dan) under Shihan Kolovos in 2013 and also her black singlet in Titans Kickboxing.
Sensei Kiley Baker has been teaching and competing in Martial Arts such as Kyokushin Full Contact Karate, Titans Kickboxing and teaching Kids Karate for many years. She is a three time Victorian Kyokushin Full Contact Champion winning the lightweight division in 2001, 2002 and 2004 and a two time World Ring Karate Australia (WRKA) Champion. During her fighting career Sensei Kiley Baker has competed and won in many tournaments in Australia, New Zealand and Japan.
Her other qualifications are having completed certificates I - III in Sport and Recreation and level 2 First Aid. She is also a Registered Judge and KickBoxing trainer with the Professional Boxing and Martial Arts Board of Victoria.
During her karate Martial Arts training, she has had the opportunity to train with many great instructors (not in rank order) such as Shihan George Kolovos, Shihan Eddie Emin, Sensei Maria Rich (formerly Sensei Maria Gibilisco), Sensei Judd Reid, Shihan Hasegawa, Sensei Gonghan (Shanghai China), Shihan Cameron Quinn, Shihan Kazumi Hajime, Shihan Oishi, Shihan Shichinohe, Shihan Tabata, Shihan Jim Phillips and Shihan John Taylor. They have all provided their unique view of the martial arts and as always it is not only a privilage to have trained with them, but an experience to simply be in their presence.
Sensei Kiley has also travelled to Thailand on several occasions to attend training camps in Muay Thai Kickboxing. The kickboxing in Thailand is far removed from what we know it as in Australia. Students in Thailand train as much as you and I work. At the age of 5 these young boys are already title holders in their division. To see these young boys fight full contact Thai rules as perfectly as they do at this age can only be described as inspirational. By the time they are 21 they have an enormous number of fights under their belt and to have met some of these fighters is truly a humbling experience.
