Rachael & Jake have made me welcome from Day One. I've never done weight training before, so I was starting from a very low base. It has been an amazing journey over the past eighteen months as I'm gaining not just strength but also the confidence to achieve more. I honestly never thought I'd be doing this type of training as I'm in my late 60's, but I'm proving that it's never too late to start improving your level of fitness.

I highly recommend Ivy Training. The combination of their expertise and personalised approach has enhanced my fitness journey, making it both enjoyable and effective. The welcoming and supportive environment they create is exceptional.

Jake is an absolute gem! I limped into Ivy Training about 1.5 years ago, wanting to keep doing adventure sports, but with a mishmash of injuries that left me feeling vulnerable. Jake has been amazing at helping me build strength and physical resilience. He is super patient and has tailored my workouts around my different limitations. His expertise in both training and anatomy is evident, making each session productive and educational. He also beams a thousand rays of positivity. Thanks to him, I feel much stronger and more robust.

Hands down the best personal trainers in Sydney! I have never enjoyed training in the past but being guided by the awesome PTs at Ivy Training has made the training experience so much fun and extremely rewarding. The results have been fantastic! My body and mind is in a much better place and I am so thankful to Rachael for it.

I've been training at Ivy for a few months now (with Jake). Jake is through and through a professional and all around great coach which makes the training sessions more enjoyable. The facility is also generally well equipped.

I’ve been training with Jake for about 5 years now and the entire experience has been amazing. The quality of service he provides exceeded all expectations I had of any personal trainer. I’ve grown to love strength training and taken an interest in powerlifting because of him. He also was able to help my through an injury and program alternatives exercise to ensure I was still able to train the way I liked. I’ve gained a dedicated and loyal friend and would 100% recommend Jake to anyone!

Charlotte Langi

I’ve a history of avoiding gyms because of the “vibe” and always preferred the outdoors. I was also concerned that doing weights would cause me further lower back issues, what with age etc! Far from it, Rachael has been an amazing coach, gently building up confidence and adding weight slowly. My core feels better than it has in years and I really look forward to the sessions. Rachael is an absolute delight to work with and has an engaging persona to add to a safe structured approach to work in the gym. I feel in safe hands at all times.

My husband and I are in our early 50's and were wanting to get back in shape. We have not been one for gyms, so we went looking for a personal trainer and found the most wonderful Rachael Fisher. She gets to know you personally and caters a program to your ability and injuries. We both love the fact that it is weight training as we can do the cardio ourselves. We love our two sessions a week as it's our time to look after us and not the kids. Rachael pushes you when you need a push but also makes it fun. We highly recommend Rachael.
