About Us

Meet the team and learn more about what we do

The Fit Stop, in St Kilda East, is an independently owned & operated personal training & group training facility. We have been here at 240 Inkeman St around 10 years now, with hundreds (or thousands) of local residents having come through our doors. We offer 1-1 personal training and small group training, only from high level, experienced, educated coaches who are in the top tier of the industry.

What alot of people don’t know, is that in the current fitness industry there can be a big difference from one personal trainer to the other, in terms of education and experience. Your choice could literally be the difference between wasting your time & money, being shown completely incorrect training methodologies with incorrect & even dangerous form…OR doing things correctly (& safely) which will lead to long term results and a healthy understanding of what it takes to reach your fitness goals. Its not hard to find someone to bark out random exercises and motivating quotes just to get you tired and sweaty, that’s not hard for any personal trainer to do, and its not the right approach for long term results.

You shouldn’t be paying for a cheerleader… you need a professional personal trainer or a coach who knows what they are doing with your body (especially if you spend all day sitting at a desk and have to deal with poor posture, flexibility & mobility issues & niggling aches and pains). Effective training is about matching the right exercises & movements for your body & goals, fixing up any weaknesses, imbalances or movement dysfunctions which are limiting your progress, avoiding exercises which are inappropriate for you (& likely to lead to injury), and learning how to train with correct technique for long term progress & results.

The Fit Stop, located at 240 Inkerman St, St Kilda East, is a personal training and group training facility where people come to get real fitness results and advice, in an honest, down to earth environment. No fads, gimmicks or false promises. Our personal trainers here specialise in helping regular everyday people get fit, strong & functional. Whether you have a specific body composition or performance based goal you’d like to reach, or just want to train to make sure you’re maintaining a good quality of life, we’re here to help.

Our aim is to provide an honest approach to health & fitness, and a non intimidating, friendly environment for people to train, whilst pushing our clients to get results and be the best they can be using only the most effective, proven training methods. We can work with you on both your training and nutrition, depending on your goals, and we’ll provide support and accountability to keep you on the right track. We recognise the need in the personal training industry for a high quality group personal training facility that has a focus on good form, correct training technique, movement quality & posture, and a sensible approach to long term health, fitness & weight loss.
