    I have been enjoying training at Coogee Gym Innervate for the last few months. Lisa's attention to correct form and technique makes me feel safe to workout and try new movements with less risk of injuring myself. Lisa's set up … More of having set classes means that there's a great community feel as you see the same people all the time. And her passion, enthusiasm and jokes makes it all good fun. Highly recommend 😀

    Lisa is the best! Awesome vibe for training, she really explains everything so you not only know how to do everything but also why you’re doing it. So much better than anywhere else I’ve been!

    I’ve been attending Innervate for only 11 weeks now but I love it so much. When I started I had horrendous hip and back pain, which I’ve been dealing with on and off for about 5+ years now, it was at its peek when I started and now … More it’s all but gone. I feel so much stronger and when I’m training I feel safe because Lisa is there making sure I have correct form. She also explains everything so you have a great understanding of what muscles you should be feeling and how they should feel when you do it. I can not recommend Lisa and Innervate enough, it’s seriously been life changing and I can’t believe I’ve been living with this damn hip pain when I didn’t have to.

    Lisa is an excellent, supportive, professional and dedicated trainer. She really goes above and beyond. I started with Lisa’s program after the birth of my baby and her approach to my fitness has been incredibly considered, motivating … More and committed. I now feel more fit and strong in my body than I ever have before! I would highly recommend working with Lisa at Coogee Innervate.
  • Avatar Louise Hutley ★★★★★ 5 months ago
    Could not recommend Lisa's programme enough. Lisa is passionate about getting results and cares deeply about safety and form on a personal level making the classes less intimidating and more about personal achievement and growth. She … More creates fun, social groups where everyone is pushed within their own capability, feels accountable & enjoys turning up - even at 7am!
  • Avatar Karen ★★★★★ 5 months ago
    Having trained in different gyms in Sydney over the past 8 years, I can honestly say Lisa is the best trainer I’ve dealt with and genuinely cares about her clients! She is all about proper form and spine health, and getting results in … More the smartest way possible. There is a great community feel from the gym and it’s overall just a really enjoyable experience! Highly recommend!

    Lisa Brown is an incredible trainer who transformed my life to other level of health. I feel strong, i don’t have neck and back pain as before (I am seen my physio much less) i can sleep all night now and have so much more energy. Also, … More it is a great feeling to be part of a friendly environment at the gym. Thank you so much Lisa for your dedication and passion for what you do, the 3 months training results is unbelievably positive on my overall health, it is just amazing. You are a star.
