I spent just over two years training at Personal Best and it was one of the best investments I could have made. The only reason for leaving was my relocation overseas, and my twice weekly personal training sessions are now sorely missed.
My reason for signing up initially was to tone up and lose a couple of kilos following a period of illness, however, it quickly became a whole lifestyle change. Not only did I receive individual attention during my gym sessions, I continually worked with my trainer to develop a program that I could follow outside the gym – as a result, I now enjoy running!
The main difference between Personal Best and simply joining a gym is the routine – there were certainly occasions when I didn’t necessarily feel like being at the gym, but the fact that I had a time locked in meant that I had to go – and I always felt so much better afterwards. Similarly, when I took a month off for an overseas holiday and then again for my wedding, I had a gym session scheduled for the day after I returned. I didn’t want my hard work to go to waste, and didn’t want to let myself or my trainer down. As such, the routine combined with the fact that my trainer pushed me to work harder than I’d ever thought possible, meant that I saw great results – they were gradual, but relatively easy to maintain.
The Personal Best environment is relaxed and friendly (certainly not intimidating), and the trainers are very professional. I have and would recommend Personal Best to friends, and if I ever return to Sydney or Brisbane, I will be back.
