It's the best thing we've ever done. Top Coach has definitely helped me, I've lost weight but better than that I am fitter, stronger and I feel great. When you have had spinal injuries like I have, you are constantly told to be careful and don't do things. It gets inside your head and you stop extending yourself. The converse is true, it is really important for your long term health, balance and mobility to become strong to support those weak points. I get that and Chris and Leisa get that too. I feel so much stronger now and I don't feel my neck and back pain. It's just so good to have somebody watching me do the exercises properly. The best thing has been regaining confidence in my ability to do things. I didn't ever see myself getting back on the water or hiking. Now I am starting to believe in my abilities again. I really feel that this is just the beginning. I am really pleased with my decision to join your team, that's what it is. We do things as a team and encourage one another. I love the fact that I am getting to know the trainers and feel a part of the group. It's great that my partner and I can come along even though we have vastly differing ability and we have both made progress! Thank you so much for the acknowledgement guys, I better get moving or I'll be late for class!

I love the sessions and am committed to training, it has become part of my daily routine.
I always hated running but as my fitness has improved and I have started to enjoy it. With Top Coach's help, I reached my 50th Parkrun and recently achieved a hat trick of PB's at Park Run. Over the last few months I've managed to lose some of those unwanted kg and a lot of cms. I have a lot more energy and everyone is commenting on how good I look. Top Coach motivates me and pushes me to achieve my fitness goals.
Leisa and Chris are always there to listen and motivate, always make the sessions fun and give us a variety of different activities and venues to keep things interesting. It's great to see that you take pride in making sure that the exercises are done correctly, that you minimise injuries and help us work on our weak points, while being encouraging at the same time. Personalised service and fun, challenging workouts.

I don’t get back ache anymore, I have more strength and I’m definitely more toned than I ever have been in my life, even having reached 40 and bearing 3 kids!
I have never been into exercise (hated it in fact) and I’ve always been very unfit, so if it wasn’t for Top Coach I would probably be lucky to fit in a few walks each week with the dog!
Sometimes I struggle with some of the exercises but they always make each session different and fun.
I love that each session is in a different location and its always great to catch up with the lovely bunch of girls and guys that I train with.
If it wasn’t for the expertise and the fun we have at Top Coach I know I wouldn’t have the fitness I have today. Top Coach has truly changed my life. Thank you Chris and Leisa!! xx

Since starting Top Coach, I have more energy !!! My clothes are all loose on me as well, as I can now wear some clothes that I have not been able to fit into!!! I have also been receiving compliments from other people about how I am looking !!! I am definitely feeling better. My aches and pains in my knees, hip and back, have decreased quite dramatically. I am loving all the classes I do with you guys; they are brilliant. I have not worked out like this for years, and I am loving the challenge and the feeling. Thank you.
Leesha BellLove it!
Hi Chris and Leisa,
I just want to say thank you to you both and also Kane and Brooke.
I am really enjoying the classes I am attending. It is such an eye opener to me, because I have always shied away from gym's and fitness groups. I am so happy just to be back to regular running, and for it to be sustainable without injury. The bullet proof knees program has been unbelievable!
Thanks for the help, support and encouragement each of you are giving to me. I now know why Sonia really enjoys Top Coach so much.
Ken FletcherI am really enjoying the classes
I'd like to sincerely thank Chris, Leisa, Brooke and Kane, for getting me into shape over the last 15 months.
I have valued your enthusiasm, encouragement and advice, which has kept me motivated.
I feel fitter, stronger, healthier and trimmer now than I can remember being for a very long time.
So, well done team!
Judy FoskettI feel fitter, stronger, healthier and trimmer now
Started Top Coach as Beth is very focussed on health and life balance and my only exercise was surfing occasionally. No real time to do anything else. We are all time poor. A couple of my friends had also been going and enjoyed it. I needed to get fitter than I was and had made various attempts to do it by myself without much continuity. TC was convenient. It is always a bit daunting to start a new activity (especially when there are others around) so took a bit of pushing to get me there. Primary goal was overall fitness and strength to reduce risk of injury, knees and back.
I am fitter now than I’ve been since I was a med student playing water polo (30 years ago!) Always believed it possible but seemed very distant possibility. TC is great fun. Coaches are professional and keep the motivation going to help push that little bit harder. The sessions are well planned and balanced. I tend to go to the sessions at 6:30 pm so have a mixture of whatever is done at the time. Overall I think this is a good thing as I am not just choosing a specific type of session. I am not a morning person. (Don’t belong to the insomniac club) TC is user friendly - takes 90 minutes of your day and you get huge benefits. There is a good mix of sessions and there is definitely a sense of comradery in the groups.

I must say, the girls and I have genuinely been enjoying the classes. Always a natural high thereafter. I think for the first time in 50 years it feels as if I might be learning how to do thinks correctly and certainly I know the benefits will follow.
Thanks for great work outs!
Dr Laetitia PienaarThanks for great work outs!
Chris and Leisa do such a great job and Top Coach is awesome. Best exercise group/gym I've ever been to.
Sonia FletcherTop Coach is awesome
I just wanted to thank Top Coach for the encouragement support and fun in helping me to get under the 35 minutes for the Park Run. It was a good feeling when it was 34.51. It has taken me 14 months to reach that goal. I probably would not have done it without your help. My legs are a bit stronger and I am running (okay slow jogging!!) a little bit longer than I have been. So thank you again.
Moira CromartyThanks Top Coach for the encouragement support and fun
This mornings session was tough! Amazing what you can do with an exercise ball and a Matt, Great workout!
Redmond O'MahonyThis mornings session was tough!
I actually found Top Coach because my previous trainer had " liked" them here on Facebook. She is a great gal and has a great group of young women working out with her and she definitely got me into working out! But I am 60 now and ran into some health problems recently. So when I decided I could get back to it, I thought I'd go in a little different direction. What a great place to workout! I had been unwell for 3 months and lost any fitness I had, due to medication and pain. I was afraid to start working out again because I thought I'd injure myself! The beginners classes have been awesome! I go at my own pace, and am not intimidated by more experienced members. It is not a competition, it is about getting stronger and fitter, without injury if possible! There are mixed classes where beginners are given a second option to help achieve this! The coaches are always walking around being sure I am doing the exercises correctly for the best benefits and I never feel embarrassed or feel I'm not good enough! I am also a shift worker and there are so many class options that I can manage to get a few in even while on night shift!
Jen WrenI never feel embarrassed or feel I'm not good enough!
Loving the sessions and finding them very effective. My muscles are telling me so...
My goal was to get somewhat stronger and happy to say I feel that I’m getting there especially the upper body.
Love the friendly and professional approach. Definitely have recommended it to patients and friends.
Wished I had started earlier 🙂 Thanks for the great job you guys are doing.
Dr Christine Henry-WattLoving the sessions and finding them very effective
You are all a breath of fresh air. You always make me feel welcome and continually encourage and nudge me towards my goals, showing me I can step on up out of my comfort zone and feel good while doing it. The care factor is a standout. Thankyou!!
Michele AblesonYou are all a breath of fresh air
After having many injuries myself I’ve found your style of training is awesome it’s only been almost 3 weeks since Vicky and my self joined Top Coach and feeling better each day. You have the right name for your gym, as both yourself and Leisa are Top Coach’s as well as the rest of your team. Very professional at what you do.
Thank you Chris for your support & encouragement. To be officially back at Top Coach today has rejuvenated me. It felt great to be back. I feel like my head space is on the right track, I can start to loose weight again and more importantly get my fitness levels back to how they were. My shoulder I know will take time but at least I feel now there is an end. Thank you also for taking the time to give me one on one lessons. They were a great help.

Jo EastThank you Chris for your support & encouragement
I have stuck with beginners sessions which I have found to be extremely beneficial to building my strength. I think I now need to push myself to start building on cardio as well.
Top Coach has definitely helped with my goal which has been to build up my core strength and to just make me stronger overall and I am definitely starting to see improvement. I like the personal approach that you have to each member. I like that each trainer knows who you are and what you are trying to achieve. 😊
Kirstie JollyTop Coach has definitely helped with my goal
Smashing it this week.
Feeling super fit and strong.
Definitely ready for the snow ❄️ next week.
Carl BoardmanFeeling super fit and strong.
I am enjoying the sessions and definitely feel I have made progress in fitness and strength. My running has improved, and am just about there with 5 chin-ups; think I will target 8 or 10 next! And maybe some more PBS on Parkrun; interval training really helps so will try to get to the sessions when they are scheduled.
Top Coach has helped me so much, really appreciate what you guys have done for me
Ken FletcherTop Coach has helped me so much
The personal session was really good - weird being on my own & being assessed but really valuable info. Brooke was great as she really understood where I was coming from in terms of regaining fitness, strength and health post babies.
Thanks for providing these personal sessions over and above the amazing training we already do, helps to tweak my exercising and correct when I’m off track.
Stacey SimmsThe personal session was really good!
I have enjoyed my year at Top Coach immensely. I have played a lot of sport over my life and have done a fair bit of fitness through the RAAF but your approach is far more practical, personal and satisfying. I feel my all round fitness is the best as it has been since I was a teenager.
Thanks again for all your help, you have a great brand and a wonderful team!
Mich RouhanI have enjoyed my year at Top Coach immensely
I recommend Top Coach for anyone and everyone interested in making positive changes in their lives. Chris, Leisa and the team have supported me and helped me reach my weight loss goals, 22 kilos in one year, which in turn has given me confidence and a positive attitude in all aspects of my life. There are no egos in the classes and the atmosphere is always friendly. Even in the largest of classes, you are looked after to be sure you are doing the exercises properly and safely. My journey with Top Coach has been amazing, and my confidence and determination has opened new doors for me, though sadly, those doors are too far away to continue my classes at this time, but I will continue on with the skills that they have taught me. Thanks for everything guys! 💪🏼👍🏼👏🏼😁 Jen Banks

Before I started training with Leisa and Chris I was recovering from a bulging disc injury in my lower back due to overtraining and competing in track and field events (100m, 200m) and surf life saving events. When I was able to start my sprint training again I continued to experienced lower back pain that stopped me from running at my best, a few times I had to stop my sessions completely. Feeling hopeless and frustrated I thought the pain would never go away until I started training with Leisa and Chris. Their knowledge, expertise and encouragement has allowed me to experience a significant decrease in the level of lower back pain that has been prevalent for so long. Now I am smashing out each sprint and seeing great improvements in my training. Leisa and Chris understand how important injury prevention is, not only to athletes but to all individuals. And I am so grateful they have been able to reduce my imbalances that have caused the back pain. Thank you so much Leisa and Chris.
