HERE ARE 3 GREAT REASONS
TO TRAIN WITH US

1

Affordability

The cost to train with a Fitness Playground trainer doesn’t have to be justified, because it’s not as expensive as you think. Sessions start from $69 (40mins) and get cheaper the more you choose to do per week.

2

Hand-picked Coaches

Clients come in from all walks of life and feel that the role of a trainer may not be needed, or that they're only focused on weight loss. But they do much more, they are Coaches. Our trainers are your programmer, your goal setter, your wake up call, your mental support, your accountability, and your biggest advocate, all in human form.

3

Trust

Our trainers go through a five-stage interview process, receive 200 hours of free in-house education each year, and are exposed to weekly mentoring from our long-standing Head Coaches. We train them, so you trust them.

“51% of Personal Trainers fail in their first two years.”

TYPES OF COACHING

Some Types of
Coaching

Weight
Loss

Weight
Loss

We reminisced on a historical moment back in 2019 that left our coach, Tom, hanging by our Bossman. So we re-created this moment as a very important, safety message: Be a boss. Don't handshake. Just smile.

A journey to weight loss can seem long, overwhelming & unattainable. But it doesn’t need to be. The most important thing to tackle first is your mindset, if you’re looking to lose weight, it’s about consistency and being realistic with your approach.

Strength &
Toning

Strength Training is not just lifting heavy, squatting low or curling a dumbbell. Our Coaches will guide you through different methods (like Mobility, Calisthenics, Isometrics & Cardio), as well as emphasise the importance of correct technique.

Injury
Prevention

Coming back to training after an injury or setback is both mentally & physically hard. But it is possible to recover and become determined again. Regardless of when you last trained, or how significant the setback was, there is no rush for an outcome.

Improving
Performance

What happens when you get some of our coaches dancing in an alleyway in lycra? You get noticed on national television. Shortly after this video, we were featured on the TODAY Show for our Lift Your Mood event during Covid-19.

No matter your fitness level, whether you’re only starting, you’ve returned after a hiatus, or you’re deemed an elite athlete, everyone is still working towards a common goal of improving their own physical performance.

ORLANDO VIEIRA

I started at Fitness Playground five years ago with no experience in the Fitness Industry. From day one, I received structured support and education in order to build my confidence in delivering a premium service. Fast forward to now, Fitness Playground still offers weekly workshops ranging from topics such as Nutrition, Programming and Sports Performance. The learning never stops.

Whenever I have a question, whether it’s about improving my knowledge as a PT or growing my business, I know there is someone I can easily ask who will happily make time to help me. Whether it’s a fellow PT, a manager or even the owners - there are no barriers when it comes to asking for help. From being brand new in the industry two years ago, to now being confident enough to step into the role of Education Coordinator at FP Marrickville just shows how supportive the team is. They’ve changed my life and it’s such a wonderful feeling to know that I work in a culture where my growth (not just as a PT but as a person too) is truly a priority.

Fitness Playground’s unique structure guarantees progression for trainers week after week, year after year. Weekly development sessions are provided, giving access to new ideas and presenters, whilst in-house business development sessions help you get on your feet in a notoriously difficult industry. In your first six weeks, you have daily interactions with either your mentor, club manager or PT manager. From there, any individual assistance you need is provided, before you’re moved into business development to set short and long term goals.

NICOLE KENNEDY

Fitness Playground educated me on how to be courageous about the vision of my PT brand which was exactly the support I needed. Sitting with various mentors and listening to them tell their story along with providing a window into other opportunities that are available, encouraged and inspired me to do more. To come to a workplace each day where you are challenged by colleagues who can see your potential (sometimes before you can) is great leadership.
