Personal Training

Due to the attention and care provided to each of my clients I can only personally train up to 10 people at a time. I empower you to be the best you can be.  By sharing my knowledge, I educate, motivate, challenge and guide you to achieve your goals.  I make the most of your time, avoid injury, promote recovery whilst challenging you to achieve better results, faster.

When I plan your one on one sessions I consider your goals and circumstances such as health history, capabilities, schedule, likes and apply a combination of the following training principles:

  • Progressive Overload – continual positive adaption to progress and improve
  • Frequency – how often you train
  • Intensity – how hard you train
  • Duration – how long you train
  • Variation – variation is key to avoid overuse or plateauing
  • Specificity – tailored to your goals and capabilities
  • Recovery – promotes optimal results
  • Maintenance – intensity and frequency adjustments to accommodate for lifestyles
  • Interference – minimize factors that may hinder your results
  • Individualism – goals in a tailored programmes to achieve the results you want!

What they say about me

I had an ACL, MCL, medial and lateral meniscus repair surgery in may this year. Started my rehab with Steve in July. He is highly knowledgeable and a hands on trainer. Quite often he actually does the work out with me. We have been training together for almost 5 months now. Rehab 3 times a week and strength and conditioning twice a week. I’m already feeling stronger then before my injury and my knee has been improving consistently since day one. I couldn’t be happier with my progress and would recommend him to anyone who’s after serious training.

Steve really listened to what I wanted to achieve (1/2 marathon trail running events), pushed me to do a wider range of training and corrected my technique. I really appreciate his depth of knowledge and the way he explains why each exercise is helps me stayed motivated.

I have been with Coach Stephen for a few months now and without a doubt I can say my overall fitness has skyrocketed. I needed his help to prepare for a selection course where I would be tested to my physical limits. His specific training programs helped me nail the course without injury. I can always rely on him to reply and tweak my program to fit with my schedule and how I am feeling. Can’t wait to see what else we can achieve.

I always have great work with FXV. Steve is knowledgeable and friendly. The workouts are well balanced with a range of exercises. He pushes me but still leaves me with energy to perform at my Jiu Jitsu training. Highly recommend it for injury prevention and improved performance!

Steve helped me prepare for and travelled with me to several international events over 3 years. We got my jumps and throws firing at the same time and I hit several PBs at Gotzis in 2011. I also qualified for the London Olympics and came first in the Australian Championships 2012 in Melbourne under his guidance. Steve pushed me to my limits and intuitively understood what I needed. I highly recommend him to anyone wanting to improve their performance.
