Who will you be working with?

The coaches launching our online programming and coaching program are none other than Jaimie-Lee Brown and Nathan McCulloch.

Jaimie-Lee Brown: “Strength and happiness comes from finding balance.”

Before personal training, Jamie-Lee was a teacher for children with special needs.

While the classroom may seem worlds away from RevoPT, to Jamie-Lee they’re not so different.

In both roles, she helps people realise their best selves – something that takes patience, understanding, communication and trust.

She moved into training after using exercise as a personal stress-relief that offered mental and physical results. When people started asking her for advice, she knew she’d found a new career. With clients that range from their 20’s to their 70’s, Jamie-Lee doesn’t have a set training style. Her focus is on using your individual strengths and goals to create a tailored program that suits you.

Nathan McCulloch: “Change is the best thing you can do.”

Like most people who’ve completed the Overland Track, Nathan has a natural sense of adventure and it comes through in the way he trains.

He loves clients who don’t just enjoy a challenge, but provide them too.

Whether it’s requesting a new type of exercise or working around a physical limitation, Nathan believes that every session should be something you shape together. He’s flexible, relaxed and always open to new ways of working.

Nathan believes that change is the single best thing a person can do. It’s what saw him move from Tassie to Melbourne, complete a degree in Exercise and Sports Science, change his lifestyle and ultimately start a career in Personal Training.

Revolution Personal Trainer: Chris Price

Chris Price

Revolution Personal Trainer: Chris Price (Pricey)

Specialty: Functional Movement

I’m a convert. I started my career as a Graphic Designer working enjoyable but long hours behind a desk before I made the decision to pursue my other passion and begin a career in Health & Fitness. And I couldn’t be happier.

For me, fitness is more than exercise. Fitness is about moving better, recovering from injury, changing behaviours, improving nutrition, having fun and ultimately feeling better. 

Regardless of your fitness background, whether pro or participant, getting basic movement and nutrition fundamentals right will lead to greater performance in everything that you do.

So if you are looking to move better for everyday life or looking for specific gains in your chosen sport seek me out for a chat as I might just have a few tricks up my sleeve to share.

Training Style & Influences

Most people start exercising thinking that they move correctly but are just unfit, however the fundamental aspect of exercise is how we move.

What we do throughout the day has a great effect on our body’s ability to move effectively. Anytime you exercise with incorrect movement, all you are doing is reinforcing that incorrect movement, leading to poor posture, pain and even injury.

Focusing on improving the body’s compensations while having fun will lead to better results in the long term.

Revolution Trainer: Timothy Riley

Personal Trainer Tim RileySPECIALITY: Crossfit

Fitness for Timothy is a serious subject. After 8 years in the Australian Army he sees fitness as not only a great way of staying healthy but an integral part of preparing one’s self for the challenges and trials that life can throw at you. This former Infantry soldier saw service in the Solomon Island, East Timor and Afghanistan knows all about how fitness shapes you mentally as well as physically. He qualified as a Combat Fitness Leader, slogged it out on a Reconnaissance Course, and successfully passed the SAS Selection Course. He loves doing obstacle courses and how they have found their way into the civilian fun run world. After completing his Certificate 3 and 4 in fitness his intent is to combine his knowledge learnt during his career and bring that same know how and ethos to those willing to challenge themselves. So see you in the gym. Who dares wins.

Training Style & Influences

I love my fitness to be functional and applicable to everyday settings. I believe that your fitness needs to be across multiple disciplines from running to boxing, from weights to gymnastics. Crossfit is definitely what I spend most of my time doing, however I believe there are a lot of other forms and styles of fitness that can be applied to ready oneself for the combat of daily life. Obviously my time in the military has shaped this view and I fervently believe that inside every person there is a warrior spirit waiting to burst out, a warrior spirit which can be applied to everyday living.

Qualifications

  • Level 1 Master Trainer

  • Level 1 Crossfit Trainer

  • Punchfit Trainer Qualified

  • Certificate IV in Fitness

  • Certificate III in Fitness                   

Personal Profile

•    Favourite Food:     A good gourmet pizza.

•    Favourite Drink:   Water always does the job.

•    Favourite Sport:    Boxing and obstacle courses.

•    Favourite Music:   Probably the only person who loves the bag pipes, but for day to day listening I’m always tuned to Triple J.

•    Favourite Movie: Warrior, Thin Red Line, The Odd Man Out (don’t know it, look it up, classic!).

•    Likes:     A good sunny day, the potential feels endless.

•    Dislikes:     The word can’t.

•   Hobbies:     Hiking, fun runs and the occasional computer game.

•    Who Inspires You:     My family and anyone who pushes themselves to the limit.

•    Life Philosophy:     Nothing ventured nothing gained. Who dares wins.

Why I Became a Personal Trainer

I’ve always enjoyed instructing and training people. One of the best courses I did in the army was the Combat Fitness Leaders Course. A course designed to qualify soldiers in taking their comrades through fitness testing and group fitness circuits. I loved that course and once I had the chance to put it into practice I went at it whole heartedly. Upon leaving the army I wanted to bring all that knowledge and experience to the rest of the world, so becoming a personal trainer seemed the right fit for me.

Invest in Yourself with Personal Training Melbourne Instructors

Good health is the one thing nobody can afford to do without. No one likes to feel terrible constantly, and anyone who has been so ill to the point of being incapacitated knows the value of a healthy body. It should not take a major personal crisis in order to persuade anyone to take a more active part in maintaining good health, and with obesity becoming more and more of a common issue across the country, it has never been more important to look after yourself. Some may find that getting started down the road to fitness is an intimidating and sometimes overwhelming endeavor, with so many resources available it can be difficult to determine what advice is sound and what is well-intentioned but misleading. So, where do you one begin? Personal training Melbourne makes an excellent starting point, and here are several reasons why.

1) Get started. For many, simply getting motivated to begin is too large a hurdle, whether that is at the very beginning or further down the road. A good personal training Melbourne instructor can offer you encouragement and help bolster your self-confidence from start to finish.

2) Set goals and monitor and maintain personal progress. At the beginning, the personal training Melbourne instructor will sit down with you and determine what your fitness goals are, whether that is to improve overall health, lose weight, tone up, eat better, or some combination of all of these, and they will also keep track of how you are progressing.

3) Develop a personalized regimen. There are only so many hours in a day and every one of them is precious. To this effect, your personal training Melbourne instructor will help you develop a workout routine tailored to your specific needs and personal schedule that will allow you to train for maximum benefit in minimum time, whether the venue of choice is at a fitness centre or in the privacy of your own home. Your trainer will also ensure that your personalized training addresses any specific medical needs (e.g. diabetes, arthritis, spinal concerns, injury rehabilitation, pre- or post-pregnancy conditions, limited mobility) and take care to work with you on them.

4) Plan healthy eating alternatives. As if finding enough time in the day isn’t hard enough, making healthy food choices is even more so, especially with so many cheap fast-food products readily available. Eating with an eye for good nutrition does not have to mean starving yourself or sticking to plain, uninspiring dishes you will get bored of quickly. Your personal training Melbourne instructor can help you with a food plan that allows you to eat well while staying within your budget.

5) Prevent injuries. There is a lot of exercise equipment available both in fitness centers and for personal home use; using incorrect form can cause injury or aggravate existing ones. Your trainer will teach you the correct form and techniques for using the equipment necessary for your homework program, whether those are using machines, free weights or even just yourself.

6) Gain and enhance skills. Perhaps you would like to start a new sport, or enhance your performance in one you currently play. A good personal trainer specializing in your chosen sport can help teach you the skills you need and maximize your potential to give you the edge over your competitors.

Personal training Melbourne instructors are no longer the sole province of the well-to-do social elite. It is a worthwhile investment, as the person reaping the ultimate reward will be you, and the long, healthy years you gain as a result will be worth it.
