My philosophy is that nutrition and exercise is medicine for a long, happy, pain-free life. Our bodies are built to move, we’ve been doing it since the dawn of man! But in recent years, people are spending more time in front of a screen and our supermarkets are filled with heavily processed foods. It’s no wonder obesity is on the rise in Australia. It’s more important now than ever to exercise and eat well. In saying this, people are much more likely to stick to an exercise and eating routine that they enjoy, so it is my goal to make fitness and nutrition fun and easily adaptable to your lifestyle.

PT Client Reviews
“Initially I picked up the PT sessions to support the gym and their staff during lockdown. I really enjoyed the workouts and felt so much stronger both physically and mentally through these sessions. My goal was to lose 5kg, which we achieved together within 3 months of our sessions together, which was really pleasing. Shane’s sound advice on nutrition and calorie management really helped me achieve my goals. Every workout is given with clear, concise instruction, which is very reassuring, ensuring I remain injury-free. I was considering stopping the personal training sessions when the gym reopened, but I enjoy them so much that, months later, I’m still continuing. I can honestly say that I’m feeling the strongest I have felt in the last 20 years, and owe a big part of that to my personal training sessions and Fitness Playground in general.”
“Shane is that kind of personal trainer who gets the balance right between being professional and having a good laugh. What I most appreciate about Shane is that he is very thorough. He always makes sure that I perform an exercise safely and correctly. I appreciate that he does stop me when my technique is wrong. He always takes the time to explain things again if needed. Moreover, he quickly responds when I’m not comfortable with an exercise. He has changed my program many times to meet my needs and at the same time help me reach my goals.”
“I have found Shane to be extremely knowledgeable, approachable and understanding of all my fitness and health needs. I have worked out with Shane since September 2021 during COVID lockdown in the park, before transitioning to the gym post-lockdown. He’s always kept my programs interesting and fun while teaching me the key principles on each exercise, emphasising good form, timing and technique above anything else, which was very important to me.”
“Shane is focused on helping me achieve my fitness and nutritional goals and makes every session informative, challenging and fun. He ensures that my technique is always correct to avoid injury and I’ve already seen improvements in my ability. I would have no hesitation recommending Shane to anyone looking to improve their fitness.”
