I just wanted to start your day with a heartfelt message of appreciation. What you did yesterday was nothing short of incredible. I was feeling so unwell and just in all-sorts and wondered if I should cancel and just curl up under the doona. Instead you showed me compassion, kindness and changed everything in the space of 2 hours! I went in stressed, overwhelmed, massive headache, couldn’t turn my neck, totally jammed and agitated. I floated back home with no headache, freed up, relaxed, grounded and reconnected to myself. And carrying oils, lemon and treats! My energy within and around me was entirely renewed and when I walked in Ella greeted me on the stairs with a smile saying she was so glad I’d made time for myself and done something I enjoyed and I looked happy and she had done the same, chillaxing in bed.
Mind blown 🤯
Eternal gratitude to you. You have truly found your gift!
"Thanks for your help over the last year.
I have very much enjoyed our sessions and have noticed a big improvement in my health and general wellbeing.
Your program for me has steadily improved my flexibility, balance and strength and I feel fitter now than I have for many years.
Your keenness and enthusiasm continue to motivate me"
"I want to let you know how much I have enjoyed your Friday morning fitness class. You have re-ignited my flailing enthusiasm for workout classes and I realize how important it is to have a trainer to keep a watchful eye on how we exercise.
Although I am not a ‘gym person’, you have motivated me to continue use of the gym equipment 3 or 4 days a week. I do, still, have to force myself to go, but I am always so pleased that I have made the effort and I start the day with a whole new outlook.
I look forward to another year of your continued support in helping me with my fitness and weight loss goals."
"It is nearly a year now, since Curves closed and left a lot of us floundering about where to go to try and create 'a curves style concept'.
Many of us had not really been interested in joining a gym, but because you were our last trainer at Curves and you inspired us, and had such faith in us, we followed you to this gym.
It is different, but because we are able to do extra classes with you, either as an individual, or a group, and you continually motivate us to push ourselves, try new things, set goals etc., we have gradually accepted that because of all that is available to us, we are quite happy.
On a personal note Ant, I thank you very much for keeping me motivated, and always taking an interest in how I am going, and continually suggesting new things."
"Ant introduced me to yoga as part of my exercise routine. Since attending her yoga sessions for the last ten weeks my flexibility has increased greatly. I also attend a weekly group session run by Ant – the exercises are always varied and loads of fun that motivates us all to turn up every week. Ant is always bright and cheery at 6am. I highly recommend Ant as a personal trainer and group trainer."
"I have been at the gym for 12 months and must credit Antonietta for preparing a special programme for my needs. I have achieved far greater strength and endurance, but the best part of my week is our Friday Morning group with Antonietta. To great music she provides us with different, challenging and fun exercises."
"Antonietta has been assisting me with my fitness training for over 12 months now and she has proved to be a wonderful inspiration to keep me motivated but also have fun during her training sessions. She is always cheerful, bright and innovative and presents with such a positive attitude that you really look forward to each of her training sessions."
"Thank you for the your support and the exercise plan you worked out for me early in the year. I have managed to increase the reps and weight with quite considerable increases on some.
It has certainty helped my lower back pain and all round fitness.
Thank you for your enthusiasm and your friendship."
"I got in touch with Ant three months before a fitness test I needed to complete for work. Ant took the time to understand the requirements for the test, and made a plan to not only achieve the level of fitness required, but to help me pass the test with confidence (which I did!). Ant was always positive, genuine in wanting to see me succeed and easy to get in touch with to book sessions. I would recommend Ant as a personal trainer to anyone, whether you have specific aims or to improve your overall health and fitness."
"I was finally able to reach my goal of running 10kms in under one hour! Thank you so much for helping me to achieve a goal which I thought I could never reach. I had tried several times prior to meeting you, however I have never been able to achieve a 10km run in under one hour. You are so inspiring and motivating. I would not have been able to do it without you. Your continuous support and encouragement was outstanding. Your training program enabled me to be the fittest I have ever been. You ran beside me the entire 10km Susan Run to ensure that my running time was on track. Even when I was just about to give up, you motivated me to keep going. Your training program has also helped me to lose weight and fit into my lovely clothes again. Thank you so much!"
"Just a short note to say thank you very much for your help in working out a successful program for me, which due to my limitations was not easy.
Overall I feel fitter and also have lost a few kilos in the process."
"Having Ant as my Personal Trainer has been the best thing I could have asked for. Since starting training with Ant, I have lost just over 15kg and have dropped 3 dress sizes. And this is all because of this wonderful lady who knew exactly how to help me. Ant listened to what I wanted to do and helped me achieve each goal at had. From my first goal of getting a routine that was for my entire body, to now adapting routines to target specific regions and muscle groups, Ant has come up with amazing programs that have tested me, made me stronger and also made me believe that I am capable to do anything and everything. Although Ant's PT sessions are challenging, I look forward to every session that I have as I know I will be achieving more goals and becoming a healthier and happier person."
"Ant is all you want in a personal trainer & optimises every workout session.
Fun, hard working (Well...you work hard!) & above all keeps every session upbeat, challenging & interesting.
Always a watchful eye on your technique & demonstrates how to do the exercise rather than tell you.
Personally, Ant has pushed me out of comfort zone while recognising my limits. I am achieving results & reaching goals!
Thank you Ant!"
"Thank you for being my personal trainer for the last two years.
When I started to work out with you I was far from being fit at all also because I was still struggling with the unpleasant effects of my polymyalgia rheumatica. You helped me a lot to achieve my fitness goals and I loved to workout with you.
You are a super-motivating person and with your cheerful way you managed to make even the hardest training sessions feel easy."
"I’ve been with Ant for over 18 months and the benefits physically I have received is the build up in strength.
Ant has the most infectious smile when she greets you and you instantly know you are in for a great workout.
She is truly the most encouraging trainers I have met. Her positiveness always shines through no matter how negative I feel. Her enthusiasm just oozes and you can’t help but do better in each session.
One of the things that has impressed me is the variety. You think you have an idea on what’s in store but she manages to tweak it differently each time.
One important lesson I have learnt through being with Ant is that I am confident going to the gym and doing the exercises that we have done in previous weeks.
She is so respectful of everyone which in my mind is the true character of her."
"I started seeing Ant two years ago when I became fed up with feeling unfit, unmotivated and a bit bored with my routine. Since then, Ant has helped me identify and work towards fitness and health goals in the lead up to my engagement and wedding. She’s been a wonderful support, incredibly motivating, knowledgeable and I genuinely look forward to our sessions every week. I feel stronger and more confident than ever and have Ant to thank for that!"
"Antonietta has been working with my son Luke, now aged 28 for some years. Luke is on the Autism spectrum. Ant has provided personal training and ongoing personal support for Luke. Luke has benefited greatly from his association with Ant and I am pleased to recommend her, Ant displays great patience and perseverance and personal warmth towards her clients."
