“What is happiness? The feeling that power increases, that resistance is overcome.”
– Friedrich Nietzsche
Andrea’s life-long love for all things sport and fitness transformed into a passion for delivering innovative and engaging workouts that get his clients results.
Andrea Vidotto is a Coach at Fitness Playground Newtown. He’s always loved his sport – throughout his childhood and teenage years he took part in football, volleyball and even figure skating. In later years, he moved into boxing and kickboxing, and then into strength-based disciplines such as calisthenics, bodybuilding and powerlifting.
His ever-growing passion and curiosity for all sports and fitness translates into innovative and engaging workouts, where fun, enjoyment but also form and technique are never neglected.
- Strength Training, Bodybuilding, Calisthenics
- Weight Loss & Body Transformations
My philosophy is that each and every one of us should be able to train, move, have access to some sort of physical activity. Nothing compares to the joy of being able to experience what our body is capable. For me, training has been enormously beneficial in terms of mental health and development; it’s my desire to show others how this could be the same for them too! Fun, effort and intensity, technique and form are a must in any workout.

PT Client Reviews
“I have been training with Andrea for three months and in that time I have seen great improvements in my strength, back pain issues and all round sense of wellbeing. Andrea brings a friendly and communicative approach to his training, and helped me establish clear goals, designing a program that was specific to achieving them and had enough variety to keep me engaged and sticking to my training schedule. I particularly value Andrea’s focus on ensuring each exercise is performed with the correct form so that I am getting the most out of my training. I began my training carrying a shoulder injury and Andrea was also extremely helpful in building a program that would complement my physiotherapy and ensure I didn’t exacerbate the injury. I have tried personal training several times but have never been able to stick with it, but Andrea’s approach has kept me focussed and enjoying my training, and I am extremely grateful for that.”
“It wouldn’t be fair for me to just say ‘you get me out of bed in the morning’, because you do so much more than motivate me and hold me accountable to turning up at 7am on Mondays. I have truly enjoyed training with you this year. You do everything I would expect of a coach and more – you listened to my goals, our sessions are fun and personalised with lots of variety and flexibility. But what I really appreciate is that you have this special sense to know when to push me to the next level, before I believe in myself. You always seem to find ways to level up our workouts or adapt them to help me improve. It’s pretty cool to have someone in your corner who believes in you more than you believe in yourself. This is what makes you different – you are in tune with your clients. You’ve shifted my mindset to focus on why I’m training and being smart about the way I train. I can already see how this helps me build towards my goals more quickly. Train hard and train smart! One tip – maybe brush up on the dad jokes!”
“Since starting training with Andrea I feel like I am getting stronger. Andrea provides a safe and supported environment which means I try and push myself more. He has a calming presence, even when I am struggling with weights, which helps me have fun and relax when I train. Andrea’s attitude and sense of humour is very therapeutic. He is extremely knowledgeable, and flexible with my crazy schedules, he understands when my sessions need to change.”
“I have spent years joining gyms with full intentions to start lifting weights to get healthier, stronger and fitter. I would end up cancelling not long after though, because I never felt confident to be on the gym floor. Andrea has been invaluable to my training; pushing me to turn up and challenge myself. I’ve tried other Personal Trainers in the past and often found them to just make me do things that I didn’t enjoy to the point where I didn’t want to go again. Andrea took the time to listen to what I wanted to achieve and set a plan from there. He checks in on what’s working and what isn’t and makes changes to suit me and where I am at in my journey. Having him push me has seen me get so much stronger and more confident in the gym, I actually look forward to the next session – even if I’m struggling to walk down the stairs!”
