Sydney's finest and friendliest personal trainers.


We recruit our trainers on the basis of their expertise and their friendliness, not the size of their muscles.

Our trainers are typically experts in a chosen sport (including triathlon, dancing, decathlon, golf, martial arts, swimming, cross fit), are highly trained and experienced and know how to get results.

They are also people you enjoy spending time with rather than feel intimidated by. 

They’re not that bad looking either!     


Craig Baker

Craig is a super talented athlete in one of the most demanding events of all: the decathlon.  

Unfortunately he is also English so it doesn’t help Australia win medals…but we are very lucky to have him bring all his experience and expertise into the club to share with his clients.

Craig’s interest in sport started at a young age. First as a gymnast, but at 12 he decided that the high jump was 'cooler' so started doing little bit just for fun.

By 17 he had become one of the best youth high jumpers in the UK and was awarded a scholarship to study Sports Science at Brunel University (London).

Whilst at uni he made the switch to decathlon, and during his final 2 years he was training almost full time under the mentorship of the national coach. Thanks largely to the right training, Craig became the British Universities’ silver medallist at decathlon in 2006. A year later he had graduated and was representing Great Britain in what is one of the most demanding of sports.

Whilst competing, he completed his qualification as a personal trainer. 

Craig has now spent the last 5 years training a wide range of people including the young, old, unfit, elite athletes, injured and disabled. His guiding philosophy is enjoyment = consistency = progression. Craig gets a buzz out of seeing people improve and achieve their goals.
