We will design a personalised program with your current physical condition and personal goals in mind, and teach you the best way for you to exercise and integrate a healthy lifestyle, especially through tailored nutrition and exercise programs, and addressing the mindset barriers along the way. We will be right by your side helping you to get the most out of your program. Soon, your view of yourself will change as your body changes too.

“I have had many personal trainers in the past, but what Todd does is beyond anything I have ever experienced and I got more results in a short time with him than I have in years with other trainers!  Not only has my body shape massively improved, but my attitude about health has really changed.  His accountability and levels of personal contact on a daily basis really kept me on track!  It is obvious that Todd is passionate about his work and he is a true inspiration, and I am very grateful I found him!”  Louise

We also offer personalised lifestyle and dietary advice for weight management and optimal health utilising Metabolic Typing and on-going dietary education, monitoring and guidance.  A Metabolic Typing assessment is used to help you determine the optimal macronutrient ratio (fats: proteins: carbohydrates) to begin the process of fine-tuning your body’s feedback mechanisms and learn how this relates to your current weight and your health.

Our Trolley Overhaul is another popular service we offer which provides practical guidance to help you make lasting changes to your diet. Here our Health & Fitness Coach will accompany you grocery shopping to get a realistic picture of what your current diet consists of, and will offer you healthier alternatives to consider.  He will inform you how to interpret those tricky labels on food and avoid the clever marketing traps.  You will also be given some useful tools to take away from the session.

Our Personal Trainer Gold Coast can help you to:

  • Lose or gain weight
  • Improve your health and fitness regardless of your age and current fitness level
  • Recover from a medical condition or an injury
  • Increase strength and conditioning
  • Tone and shape your body

Where many personal trainers provide the same old fitness advice, pushing the same old boring exercise routines, “running, squats, get on the bike” for every client, we ensure that your training sessions are specifically tailored to you!  We tailor all of our weight loss and fitness programs to each individual based upon your goals and your initial health and fitness assessment.  No ‘one program fits all’ approach here!  You will absolutely get variety in your sessions; we pride ourselves in making our sessions both challenging and fun by offering you a diverse range of fitness training exercises.

At Integrated Health Specialists we understand that people are unique and complex individuals, and not simply isolated muscle groups or collections of health issues. We take a step outside the box of simple exercise prescriptions and diet modification. We believe in developing nurturing relationships and open communication, to facilitate positive lifestyle changes and effective problem solving for unparalleled results.

The emphasis for any personal training should come from the coach or personal trainer’s understanding of what works best for their client, what has not worked in the past, and a complete understanding of human movement, diet and human behavioural patterns. It is not just about pushing someone hard, but more about working out at an effective level to achieve their goals and encouraging a balanced lifestyle. A good coach is able to pinpoint what motivates you and what demotivates you. This is where our health and fitness coaching is unique; as part of your program, we will uncover what are the physical and mental obstacles and barriers to your success.

“I called Todd as I heard that he was a great health and fitness coach. I was only 56kg, very underweight for my height and had a bad diet, which was all contributing to my frequent bouts of illness and tiredness. Todd’s approach was friendly and personalised and far from intimidating like I have found other Personal Trainers to be. He worked with me to design a program that included changes to my lifestyle, my diet and my fitness. I went from a skinny 56kg guy to a 64kg guy within 6 months and he gave me the knowledge and confidence to maintain it. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Todd to anyone who requires assistance.”  Jason
