      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!

      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!!!

      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!

      Joining Innervate is one of the best decisions I have made in recent times. Lisa and the team are so caring and motivating, and the community is full of real people working towards their own goals at their own pace. Lisa is very supportive … More and so knowledgeable, and perhaps most importantly, makes me laugh every session! I'm so excited to continue my journey with her. Innervate doesn't feel like a gym, it feels like a safe space for me to grow and challenge myself.

      I cannot thank Lisa enough for her training and guidance for the past 3 months. I feel the strongest and most agile I have ever been. Coming from a fitness background, I appreciate the care, expertise and effort put into every training … More programme Lisa develops, as well as her emphasis on technique and her prompts during session. Each program is uniquely designed, challenging, fun and has delivered excellent results for my body composition and overall strength. I don’t get back pain anymore, my posture has improved and I feel confident when travelling and adventuring outdoors. Her encouragement, motivation and immense knowledge in the field of health and wellness has brought together a beautiful community in Coogee. Being apart of this community is the absolute highlight of my week! Couldn’t recommend highly enough for those wanting to improve their life for the better!

      Lisa has created a very special gym. She fills each session with her years of experience, passion for training, authenticity and thoughtfulness for everyone in class. She is pure sunshine and has helped me feel stronger!
