      Sessions at Innervate are often highlights of my week. Lisa is a fantastic trainer with a fire in her belly for every client. She is passionate about form and technique and she moderates every movement to ensure everyone safely gets the … More maximum benefit. The gym is a fun welcoming environment and I always feel good afterwards. Thank you Lisa for everything you do for us.

      Easiest 5 star review I've given. Now been attending Coogee Gym Innervate for over a year so it seems a good time to leave a bit of feedback.
      Turned up with a slouched posture, hip and lower back pain and imbalances of strength throughout
      … More my body. All those issues have almost been obliterated. I've still got work to do but that's just down to my consistency on attending and working through Lisa's awesome programs. Apart from being a top Northerner (UK), she really knows her stuff, i'm much stronger and effective with work (cameraman) and feeling fitter in general.
      Lisa and her team of legends are setting the standards for strength/fitness training throughout the Coogee area, I've already referred multiple people. Many thanks for all your help.

      I have known Lisa for over ten years. She has trained myself and my wife. She is knowledgeable, approachable, caring and a brilliant trainer. I have personally seen amazing results. But, most impressively is seeing her help people with … More serious back issues and change their lives. Highly recommend
    • Avatar Wayne Townson ★★★★★ 5 months ago
      Having played rugby for years, had multiple surgeries, and having a number of health issues I needed a trainer who was sensible, experienced and knowledgeable. Luckily for me I found that in Lisa at Coogee Innervate.
      She challenges me
      … More and pushes me out of my comfort zone, but always in a way that is safe and puts my needs first, not her ego.
      Lisa has the capability and competence to modify, adjust or completely change each session based on the needs of my body on that particular day.
      I cannot thank her enough for helping me to be able to function and move as the best possible me.
      In case you haven't worked it out yet, she is good.

      I felt compelled to write this review as Lisa’s program has had such a positive impact on my strength, endurance and mobility. I love this gym as Lisa takes the time each class to review my technique ensuring I’m maximising every workout … More & I don’t get injured. Lisa’s enthusiasm for life is contagious and this is evident in the program she has designed - her workouts are thoughtful and challenging but they are also welcoming and fun (even the hill sprints!). Lisa has created a fantastic fitness community & I couldn’t recommend Innervate more highly.
    • Avatar alia jones ★★★★★ 6 months ago
      I am so glad I have found Lisa at Coogee Gym Innervate. I explained to Lisa that I have a lifetime condition that impacts my strength and movement, Lisa took the time to understand my specific needs and requirements before starting a tailor … More made exercise regime.
      Thanks to Lisa’s ongoing management of my training and making adjustments I have become significantly stronger and more active. I am so incredibly thankful to Lisa for her dedication to my fitness journey and look forward to future fitness gains!
    • Avatar Bastien Lefevre ★★★★★ 5 months ago
      I have started at Lisa’s gym about 3 months. I had never done strength training before. The start was challenging as my body was not used to that intensity, and Lisa really took the time to teach me how to pace myself so I get the maximum … More benefit without going overboard. She has been very attentive in making sure I learn the right techniques for specific exercises such as deadlift, squat, etc so I felt very safe in her hands. She also gave me homework for my specific issue (tight shoulders). My group is super friendly and welcoming and we encourage each other a lot. Lisa is such a powerhouse of contagious enthusiasm that pushes you to give your best every time.
      It can feel challenging to go to the gym after a tough day at work but I never regretted it once. It is a wonderful stress reliever that washes out the frustrations of the day. My chronic neck pains are gone and my back feels much stronger. My arm muscles are more toned. And it’s just the beginning!!!
    • Avatar Hollie Wright ★★★★★ 6 months ago
      Simply put, Lisa has changed my life. I joined Coogee Gym through a friend’s recommendation and it’s one of the best decisions I made. I have a lifelong medical condition that affects my left leg and back, and also have a severe limp. … More Because of Lisa’s knowledge, passion for helping people and her careful guidance in every session, she’s given me hope and confidence that I never thought was possible. I’m the most strong and stable (when walking) I have ever been in my life. Lisa’s gym is my new happy place and the community she has built is supportive, kind and full of amazing people from all different walks of life. I’ll never be able to thank you enough, Lisa!
