Adherence and Consistency. The outcome goal is important (for example, losing 10 kilos of body fat), but the key lies in having realistic behavioural goals that you will stick to and lead you to achieve your outcome goals. Once you commence your fitness journey, it’s so important to be patient and “trust the process”.

PT Client Reviews
“Olly is one of the most experienced and knowledgeable Personal Trainers I’ve met so far. I have 1-on-1 personal training sessions with him three times a week, and in spite of moving to another suburb, I still travel to Marrickville to train with him at Fitness Playground, which is just testimony to how good of a trainer he is. Within just a year, Olly has helped me achieve my goal of putting on healthy weight, as per my tailored mass gain program. This is something I’ve struggled with all my life, but with Olly’s help, not only have I gained weight in the right places, I have also gained so much strength in a short period of time. I now feel more confident with a positive outlook about my appearance and overall health. I look forward to each session with Olly. He is such a great coach who has a wealth of experience, and at the same time, he is genuinely caring and attentive.”
“I have been doing personal training with Orlando for about six years now and I look forward to both my sessions each week with him. During the time I have worked with Olly I have seen many results within my physique and so much more. Olly has taught me more life lessons than I can count. He has been there through my good and bad days and never waivered on my needs as his client. Olly is patient and kind. He really cares about his clients and it shows in the work he does daily. Training with Olly for so many years has played a large part in my becoming a coach myself. He helped my passion for health and fitness grow by making each session fun and informative. He makes being a coach look easy (which it isn’t), by his love for his job! It’s clear Olly doesn’t just apply a cookie-cutter approach to his clients’ programs. He has developed a personalised program for me, focused on supporting and working around my injuries and limitations. I feel like Olly really listens to me and is super focused on how I can achieve my goals. He pushes me when I need to be pushed, but knows my limits (better than I do, sometimes).”
“Patient. Dedicated. Adaptable. Olly is more than your traditional Personal Trainer – he is a coach, counsellor, nutritionist and teacher rolled into one. He genuinely cares, not only about you achieving your fitness goals, but also your overall wellbeing. If you want to be guided by someone who understands the pressures of daily life and can appreciate that everyone’s journey is unique, then Olly is your man. I have been training with Olly for almost 6 years and through that time I have watched him train clients of all skill levels, ages and genders. He even regularly trains other Personal Trainers and is seen as a leader among the Fitness Playground community. Whether you’ve never set foot in a gym or you are looking to take your training to the next level, Olly will get you on your way.”
