“I started personal training with Tyla in October last year when I was at my heaviest weight and had low self-esteem. Before joining SmartFit, I had been contemplating working out. My biggest problem is not being able to motivate myself. Tyla is just amazing in many ways! She works alongside you to make sure you are achieving your goals and having a good time at the same time! I started at 73kgs, now I trimmed down to 68kgs and more to go!” –Hazel Alviola

Cardio, Resistance Training
“I have found SmartFit provide meaningful and customised fitness solutions for all manner of shapes and sizes, fitness levels and ages. I find each session to be tied into a predetermined goal – that has been discussed, planned and measured along the way. Each session is definitely challenging but ultimately rewarding, with all trainers having a deep understanding of each discipline utilised to attain your goals. It’s refreshing to find that all trainers are professional, yet fun and approachable.” –Rob Dunn

“My wife and I have been having personal training sessions with Shane on and off over several years and can thoroughly recommend his business and approach. Shane has a great set-up at his gym facility but is equally helpful around setting up a programme we could use in our own time at our own home or when travelling. It is great value and we get fantastic, positive support.” –Brian Finn
