Testimonials

  • I have had a personal trainer for over 15 years and trained with Chris for the last 5 years. During this time Chris has trained me though shoulder bursitis, a knee operation, a chronic bad back and hand surgery. He has been incredibly innovative with his training techniques and is always willing to find a solution to training challenges my body presents. 

    He is motivating in a quiet and knowledgable way and is able to offer excellent advice on nutrition. I trust Chris implicitly with training and his rehab knowledge is second to none. Having said that he is also excellent at training hard, pushing me to perform at my best and getting results.

    I have also attended group training sessions run by Chris which are a lot of fun as well as hard work.

  • I started training with Chris Hynds after having two children just ten months apart and having ballooned to 107kg.
    When I first started training it appeared to be the most mammoth challenge I had set myself and impossible in my mind.
    Physically I am 100 times fitter than I ever was, continuing to improve and am down to 65 kg – last time I weighed that was when I got married 16 years ago.
    Over the last couple of years I have had a few injuries and a couple of operations to my left hand. Chris’s background has allowed us to still train and incorporate rehabilitation.
    Chris has endured countless whinging and whining over the last three years we have trained together but it has been one of the best decisions I have ever made.

The meaning of the Tick

Lifestyle Trainers

Something we are all used to seeing on packaging in our local supermarkets is the Heart Foundation Tick. It is easy to forget exactly what it stands for. From the Heart Foundation website:

The Heart Foundation Tick is a self-funded public health program which aims to improve the nutrition of the foods Australians eat most often and deliver better nutritional health outcomes for all Australians.  The Tick nutrition standards focus on improvements that impact positively on your health such as limiting saturated fat, salt and kilojoules and making sure there is more of the healthier nutrients like calcium and fibre.

To earn the Tick, products must be independently tested to meet standards for their food type.  Whether you're in the supermarket or out for a meal you'll find plenty of healthy Tick alternatives with around 1100 products that have been independently audited to meet strict nutrition critieria and labelling standards.

Is the tick something you actively look for? How important is it to your food choices? We would love to hear your thoughts below.

About me

There are very few things that make me happier than being able to assist people in achieving goals they never thought possible and helping steer them in a better direction in life.

Making the right choices with nutrition and the right choices when exercising can all have a positive knock on effect in helping you make the right choices in life. Creating a more positive you!

One of my favourite quotes is a simple one but very effective and its something I personally strive for everyday, inside and outside of the gym.

"Become the strongest version of yourself"

I have been involved in health and fitness since I left school almost 10 years ago. I studied Sport Performance & Excellence, then went onto work in gyms as a Fitness Instructor and eventually Personal trainer, which I have been doing now for around 6/7 years.

My style of training ranges from Weight Loss, General Fitness, Corrective Exercise/ Rehab, Powerlifting, Bodybuilding, BoxFit, Functional Movement & Core Conditioning and more. I try not to specialise in one aspect but to have a broad but specific knowledge of various styles training.

Personally I train as a Powerlifter / Bodybuilder, I love both the mental and physical challenge of stepping under a heavy Barbell and putting myself to the test every time I step in the gym.

My passion is in Health & Fitness, and I will do everything I possibly can to help assist you in becoming the strongest version of yourself!
