“I started personal training with Lucia after hearing great feedback from other clients. I went to Lucia with goals including; Weight Loss, Toning, and general fitness. Lucia provided me with helpful advice on nutrition also, without this i would not have achieved the outcomes I have in such a short period of time.  I have lost 2 dress sizes and I am now much healthier, stronger and can now even run for 30minutes. Thanks Lucia for the outstanding results.”

“Before I have started training I felt unfit, lethargic, sluggish, lack of energy and constantly tired. In the last 8 weeks I have lost some weight, feel more energetic, fit and my clothes fit better. I am more conscious of healthy eating habits and benefits of regular exercise routine. “

“Thank you for training me and for improving my knee so far to the point I can walk in sand without pain, I can slightly jump in my step down the stairs, I can run short (really short) distances. And when I do get pain, it doesn’t last as long, my knee doesn’t swell up like it used to, I can still walk around without a limp. So thank you for that.”

“Lucia is one of the best investments I have ever made, what better way to invest your money then on your Health and Lifestyle. I first went to see Lucia over 8 years ago, I just turned 40yrs old, I weighted 92kgs, I smoked a packet a day, drunk about 2 liters of coke a day, no regular exercise and basically ate what I liked. Not any more thanks to Lucia. Lucia was the Ultimate Professional Personal Trainer, one that really cares about her clients and their wellbeing, one that is on time for every appointment, one that made every training session interesting and enjoyable and one that will do whatever it takes to achieve your goals. I have employed many staff over the years and my staff knew that if they wanted a reference from me they had to prove to me that they were ‘the best of the best’. Lucia filled this criteria with flying colors. I am someone who needs to be pushed, motivated and challenged and Lucia did that for me and made me want to train more and keep achieving more goals and greater accomplishments. Not long after I started training with Lucia we entered a 5km race together, I had to stop 6 times before I finished, Lucia beat me easily, three years later Lucia and I ran the Gold Coast Half Marathon together and I beat her. Thanks to her training. I have since won sprinting medals at the 2010 Pan Pacific Games, I no longer smoke, drink coke, I eat a caveman diet, I got to as low as 74kgs and I feel fit and healthy every day. Anyone who goes to see Lucia will only improve their LIFE. I give her the highest recommendation as a Personal Trainer and as a Human Being! “

“I started exercising with Fitness World because of the improvement I saw in our neighbors Melpa and Milton. I like the structured program targeting my wishes. I have started a few months ago and I can concentrate on physical tasks much better.”

“I have started training to get fitter, live longer and have a better quality of life. I felt unhealthy and not happy with my appearance. I can continue to live my life but in a more healthy way. Friends have commented on my appearance and enquired as to what I have done and I have recommended my personal trainer to them. From strength training I got the ability to perform functions in my life without worrying about injuries. I lost weight, I lost centimetres of my waistline and I have increased muscles mass on chest, arms and shoulders. I am feeling fitter, healthier and I am enjoying my life more because of my increased fitness level. I would not hesitate to recommend Lucia to my friends and associates because of the obvious results which I have achieved because of her personal training.”

Louise Firth, Brisbane :

“After a lot of injuries, I wanted to start slowly building strength and fitness. Trainers modify my session to work around injuries and are really friendly. Despite being out with injuries I definitely feel stronger and fitter day to day. It will be slow for me, but at least I know I’m on the right track.  The important thing is just to get started and not be scared that you won’t be able to do things. The fitness will start to build quickly.”

Tania Moore, 48, Main Beach :

“I had not exercised for 5 years due to a long-term injury resulting in surgery. I started training after rehab was complete & I moved to Main Beach. Trainers have a good mix of serious focus particularly around technique with a bit of fun. Consistent positive feedback along the way. Whilst I have not seen any real change on the scales it has been very evident on the tape measure. My fitness levels have improved significantly from the cardio sessions. Also with a focus on my training it has resulted in me being more aware of what I eat and when. I would recommend Fitness World, because of their excellent trainers that are focused on getting results & pushing you along without being hardcore. A nice range of people that train making it feel very welcoming. It doesn’t matter what your fitness level they will cater the program to suit and before you know it you will be doing an un-aided full sit-up & a 1 min plank :)”

Lucy Delandre, 31, Southport :

“ I liked the location and times, that’s why I started training with Fitness World. I really enjoy the training, it is lots of fun and the trainers really pay close attention to my form and progress. I have noticed a big increase in my fitness level. I have been encouraged to eat better and I am starting to notice my body changing and looking better.  YES! it is great to have the gym to yourself with the trainer and you will definitely see results!”

Merryn Hughes, 56, Main Beach :

“I started training with Fitness World to lose weight and get stronger. The trainers are lovely and not obsessive, they work around Your individual needs and encourage me to continue at my own pace. I am starting to get bit stronger now. Don’t change a thing, You are doing great. Just Do It!

Dr Lindell Day, 57 Main Beach:

“I started training in Fitness World because I had an injured knee from skiing and I wanted to be fitter next time I ski. I like the supervision. I need a specific appointment or I would not bother to do the exercises.”

Dr Mo Alam, 33 Main Beach:

“I have started 2.5 months ago, the trainers are very approachable, the training is challenging and I am never bored. I have lost a few inches from my waist and I am feeling really good. I highly recommend it.”

Dr Mary Ghazawy, 29, Main Beach:

“I have started training at Fitness World due to lack of motivation to exercise regularly. I like that the trainers keep pushing me when ordinarily I would have stopped therefore I’m achieving more than I realized I can. I am more toned and I have a better muscle definition. Friendly trainers I especially like the regular letters and tips.”

Jane Waugh, 50 Main Beach:

“A friend of mine Leanne has suggested I try Fitness World, I like training with my trainer, they push me more than I ever would myself. The half an hour is very intense and he cares about getting results. I have lost several inches and 1 Kilo! I am very happy with that as I have been working out for so long and have never seemed to have achieved anything. I would strongly suggest for anyone to try Fitness World. I give them 10 out of 10! J “

Gail 62 and Craig Lee 57, Paradise Waters:

“We have started training with Fitness World because it’s close to home, we got great feedback from our neighbor who trains there and we liked what we read from brochures dropped in our letter box. Unlike other gyms we have trained at, the genuine interest of the trainers to us has been top standard, also trainers are interested in clients achieving results. Again our results have impressed us in just a short amount of time we have been in Fitness World. Both Craig and I are slowly dropping excess kilos and changing shape. Myself the contact with Lucia is enormous for me as I class myself as a “Foodaholic” Attention to details is 110%, I would highly recommend Fitness World!”

Lauren Schneider 31 and Nick Harris, 31 Broadbeach:

“We found out about Fitness World on the internet and after we called Lucia about flexibility and our fitness goals, we thought that it sounded better for us that the other gyms. All the trainers are friendly, knowledgeable and patient with us. They always motivate us and we always look forward to each session. We both feel healthier are enjoying our active lifestyle. We have lost a few kilos but more importantly we are more toned and our body shape is much better. It was the best decision we ever made, it doesn’t feel like hard work, it is fun. Don’t worry about how far you feel you have to go, Lucia and the crew will help you get there.”

Anne Soineva, 43 Main Beach:

“Early morning training is great for me, helping me to break bad habits and focus not only on health but all areas of my life. The training of all areas of the body is helping me feel strong. I am very happy with the service; I am feeling more energized as results of re-establishing an early morning wake up routine and commitment to my work outs.”

Bianca Gordon, 27 Mermaid Beach:

“I have started training with the trainers in Fitness World to get nice and fit and good tones muscles. The trainers are very attentive and focused on executing the program with precision. Also, they always consult and check if we are ok with each exercise and the weight allowance. I have improved strength and muscle definition. I highly recommend Fitness World, great team and service, very good targeted training.”

Tracy Keeley, 49 Main Beach:

“What I like best about training in Fitness World is the personal, collaborative and non-threatening approach that manifests in a custom-made service, designed around achieving tangible results. I am not able to suggest any improvements as I am completely satisfied and happy. The improvements have been realized in every aspect of my being. Physical wellbeing impacts holistically. If you are serious about making changes in your life and are prepared to be committed, leave behind old paradigms and if you are truly willing to have a go then the benefits will not be withheld from you. 10+”

Martin Peirone, 47 Main Beach:

“I have started training because I have received a Gift Certificate in mail to give Fitness World a go. After having a couple of sessions I wanted to see my body become more toned and just generally get out and do more “stuff”. What I like about the personal trainers in Fitness World is that they do all the thinking for me and they are very friendly! I am feeling fitter and stronger and recommend to anyone to do it, I am not regretting it.”

Karen Mclennan, 58 Main Beach:

“The main reason I have started training in Fitness World was that I had no muscle tone and fitness and that they are walking distance from my home in Main Beach. I am being pushed to do what I can and that motivates me and the trainers are very pleasant to train with. I feel so much better, I am really enjoying the training. I recommend them to anyone, sign up, they know what they are doing.”

Adrianne Mooney,:

“I needed to incorporate more exercise in my daily routine. I felt lazy and sluggish and I knew I needed to get active. Lucia is very helpful and challenges me in our sessions. She is supportive and extremely friendly, since I am not from here, its been nice having another person to chat with. I feel strong, I love feeling sore and pushing myself. I have more energy throughout the day and I am more comfortable with the way my body looks. The best part it, that the trainers are there to help you which you don’t get in a normal gym. 10 out of 10!) .”

Sharon D’Helon, 40 Paradise Point:

“I have been watching my friend’s Leanne Lund’s results and talking to her about her experience at Fitness World. Also hearing from Craig and Gail Lee being so excited and impressed with these new Personal trainers. The trainers are very welcoming, positive and professional. I want long term results not a quick fix. I would recommended for anyone to go, you’ll be happy.”

Jonathan Schmarr, 15 Main Beach:

“I started training To become more fit, and learn how to fight. They push me to my limit and make me perform well. I have become much more fit, and have improved on my agility and speed with boxing. Join Fitness world, you will get the best results and achieve your limits.”

Bailey Lund, 15 Main Beach:

“I wanted to get extra fitness and strength for rowing. I like to be pushed to my absolute maximum which both trainers do extremely well. Also I like the support I am getting from both. I have become more cardio fit and also a lot stronger. I have also learned to eat healthier and have the right diet for maximum result. I would recommend to anyone to join right away, its amazing.”

James Trotter, 15 Main Beach:

“My family and friends we training with Fitness World, so I joined them too. The best thing training with Fitness World trainers, is that they make You work hard. I am already getting stronger and aerobically fitter. I give them 10 out of 10! Get ready, because You are going to be sore after.”

Keelan Hood, 17 Main Beach:

“The reason why I decided to start training with Fitness World is because I wanted to become more physically fit and to look and feel great!! The knowledge of the trainers and overall encouragement from them was the best, it really helped me accomplish my goals. I have lost 10kg, I’m becoming much stronger and can endure all physical actives. There is no possible way you can improve your services, your services are great. I would advise anyone to join Fitness World if they want to be fit, happy and enjoy life to the fullest.”

Kerry Wood, 69 Main Beach:

“I was looking for a small gym and wanted a female trainer. Lucia pushes me but she knows my limits. I have only started a few weeks ago, but I am already feeling better.”

Channey Fell, 26 Main Beach:

“I have started training in Fitness World to increase my fitness and for wellbeing. All the trainers are very friendly and informative. In a short period of time I feel a lot fitter and I can see more tone to my body. I definitely recommend it, once you’ve tried it, you’ll stay.”

Finlay Walker, 47 Main Beach:

“I came to Fitness World to get fit for surfing, I love the specific surf training program, I have noticed improvement in my core and legs strength, so I am very happy with the services.”

Rachel Dargie, 40 Main Beach:

“I felt reasonably fit and healthy but with very little strength. Now I am feeling great after the session, feeling stronger. My least favorite thing is getting up early! In saying that, I prefer to train first thing in the morning. I am getting the support I was expecting.”

Emily Canning, 33 Main Beach:

“I wanted to set a goal for weight loss, Fitness world was located right next to my home. After the free trial session I knew it was very different than how I used to train before so I signed up to give it a go. Plus I felt Lucia understood the challenges of weight gain- fluctuation. I like having someone holding me accountable for my actions (eating right, working out). I find Lucia motivating and always finds a workout time to fit my schedule so no excuses. “

Petronela Ciganikova, 26 Main Beach:

“I liked the fact that is close to where I live, keeping me motivated with letters was very encouraging, the workout was never boring, I have learned that working out is not only about losing weight, but about feeling good, fit, fresh, healthy, happy and satisfied. After 7 years of doing bits and pieces on my own, now I can finally see a change in my shape all over my body. Thank you Fitness World.”

Terryl 47 and Tim 47 Costello, Main Beach:

“For too long, we could feel our fitness levels drop and the kilos increase. We were sick of feeling “old” and creaky and finding it too hard to get out of bed without our joints hurting and having trouble keeping up with our children when playing. We felt lethargic, no energy and generally unhealthy and overweight. The best part is the constant attention during a session and keeping us on track when we would otherwise have given up.
Lucia is great at knowing our strengths and weaknesses. At times we injured ourselves (outside of training) and she was supportive and knowledgeable about what to do to help our injuries and how we could still train in other ways. She was very good with diet advice and interested in helping us to maintain a healthy lifestyle and diet to fit in with our everyday work and social commitments. Lucia helped us gain fitness and weight loss without making us feel like we were in a boot camp. She is also one of the very few personal trainers willing to take us on as a husband and wife team managing our program while we were constantly at different fitness levels. We feel improved upper body strength and being able to walk up and down stairs and in and out of bed without hurting is the best result yet. We maintained consistent weight loss. We are overall really happy with our weight loss and developed strength and fitness improvement. We have a renewed interest in exercise and better eating habits. We feel so much fitter and better for having seen Lucia for 12 weeks. A good result from having a good balanced workout and varied enough to keep us interested throughout the program.
Lucia helped work around our busy schedules so we did not miss a session and was versatile enough to even help us with program when we were away using hotel gyms. She was always supportive and encouraging and never missed a session with us.”

Lila Eicher, 63 Main Beach:

“I have started training with Lucia to get my waistline down and legs and arms toned. I felt stressed about not being fit because I was out of shape physically. I know it makes me feel better in all areas of life. My trainer is very good at making sure I do each exercise properly. I gained overall fitness and got more toned. My current results make me so much healthier, I feel better in my clothes fit me better. What I like the most is that the program is divided into upper, legs and arms for different days. I enjoy the professional and the personal side of the training. We can laugh as well as hurt. Both Jose and Lucia are very personable and really care about their clients. I would recommend them to anyone who wants to get healthier and feel better.”

Lisa De Michele, 57 Main Beach:

“I have received a gift voucher from my fiancé for Christmas for Personal training. I don’t have to think about what part of my body I should train on a Monday & Thursday. The appointment time makes me more accountable. My muscles feel stronger after only a few weeks. Great service, caring people and great way to stay motivated.”

Jessica Carolyne, 20 Main Beach:

“Thank you for training me and for improving my knee so far to the point I can walk in sand without pain, I can slightly jump in my step down the stairs, I can run short (really short) distances. And when I do get pain, it doesn’t last as long, my knee doesn’t swell up like it used to, I can still walk around without a limp. So thank you for that.”

Bronwyn Johnson, 55, Main Beach:

“I met Lucia in her capacity as a personal trainer with another company and received excellent results from her knowledge of fitness, weight loss, personal goals, life skills and positive reinforcement and confidence to achieve and fulfil anything which may be missing or lacking in one’s life! When I first visited Lucia I was overweight, lacked confidence and had physical problems from foot drop, and two back operations. She was able to help me in all of these areas. I have been training with Lucia for 18 months and have never felt better. She is a very dedicated trainer who loves her work and what it stands for, as it is not just a job but a way of life which she teaches her clients joy in their achievements and confidence to continue and improve every day! Thank you Lucia, you have changed my life!”

Remi Quinlivan, 22 Main Beach:

“I’ve found out about Lucia in the Gold Coast Bulletin. She had a feature about organic food. I have decided to start to lose weight. I felt overweight before I came. I’ve started to train and I got defined muscles. What I like to most is the mix of exercises.”

Billy Cross, 49 Main Beach:

“I have been training for a few years now because I wanted to keep fit. I want to feel young, healthy and look good despite my age. What I’ve experienced from doing personal training is having the motivation to continue my training routine. It’s hard to get motivated as you get older and after so many years of training. My Trainer is tough but also fun and funny so there is something to look forward to every session.”

Shirley Yonge, 61 Main Beach:

“I like Being certain that I am doing the exercises correctly. I think the sessions are all very well run! 10 out of 10!”

Deline Stamoudis, 25 Paradise Waters:

“Before training at Fitness World I was feeling sloppy & didn’t have much energy as I had spent a few months overseas. The trainers at Fitness World were friendly & professional & really pushed me to see results only after a few weeks! For me, affordability was an issue with personal training; however Lucia was able to think outside the box so I had shorter training times but more frequently throughout the week. It really helped that the trainers were also in shape as that helped motivate me. It showed that their training worked! I have never received so many compliments since training with Fitness World.”

Kerry Tapper, 58 Paradise Waters:

“I came to Fitness World to lose weight and get fitter. I like how you push us even though we struggle, I like the no-nonsense approach but doing it nicely as well. I am feeling stronger already. I really think you are great at support by staying in contact- the best I have ever had. You provide the best personalized service!”

Nathan Kelley, 27 Broadbeach:

“I got a personal trainer to lose weight and to tone my stomach. I like the relaxed environment and personal attention that you don’t get in large gyms full of people. I have improved fitness overall, I have a flatter stomach, and I am starting to gain some muscle. I give Fitness World 10 out of 10. J “

John Duensing, 63 Emerald Lakes:

“I have started training to get fitter, live longer and have a better quality of life. I felt unhealthy and not happy with my appearance. I can continue to live my life but in a more healthy way. Friends have commented on my appearance and enquired as to what I have done and I have recommended my personal trainer to them. From strength training I got the ability to perform functions in my life without worrying about injuries. I lost weight, I lost centimetres of my waistline and I have increased muscles mass on chest, arms and shoulders. I am feeling fitter, healthier and I am enjoying my life more because of my increased fitness level. I would not hesitate to recommend Lucia to my friends and associates because of the obvious results which I have achieved because of her personal training.”

Michael Williams, 31 Southport:

“After a holiday overseas and the influence of a good friend I have decided it was time to exercise again after 10 years and before it was too late. I have enjoyed the encouragement and their attention to my pre-existing injuries. My results have been great, gaining strength and also have lost 5 cm from my waist in just 4 short weeks! No more “pot belly”! I would certainly recommend any friends.”

Leanne Glanz, 51 Ashmore:

“I found out about Lucia with a brochure that was delivered to my workplace. I started training with her because I was feeling unhealthy. I’ve known her for 7 years now and I hadn’t felt this good about myself since pre-children. Thanks for helping me getting fit and healthy Lucia”

Kerri Whitford, 59 Benowa:

“I started training with Lucia 7 years ago and I have never regretted it. My arthritis pain is minimal now and my general fitness is great. Lucia is the most amazing and caring trainer, who researches any medical conditions I might have to find the best fitness program for me. I cannot say enough about this remarkable young woman who really cares about her clients. Thank you Lucia”

Felicia Digiannantonio: 24, Labrador:

“I started personal training with Lucia after hearing great feedback from other clients. I went to Lucia with goals including; Weight Loss, Toning, and general fitness. Lucia provided me with helpful advice on nutrition also, without this i would not have achieved the outcomes I have in such a short period of time. I have lost 2 dress sizes and I am now much healthier, stronger and can now even run for 30minutes. Thanks Lucia for the outstanding results.”

Marylou Lester, 38 Ashmore:

“I started training to lose weight and tone. I felt unfit and was unhappy with my body. I have experienced a change in my general thinking about my health. I have become more focused and prioritize my health and wellbeing more often. I have targets and goals and it feels good when I achieve them. Lucia keeps me on track with my targets and goals. I feel more confident and definitely have become more toned. I like having someone keep me on track.”

Lynne Walsh, 43, Isle of Capri:

“Before I began any training I had some irritation in my legs, I think it was ‘restless leg syndrome’. I figured if I exhausted my legs by training them then this problem would go away and I was right, it did. I previously suffered from a cracking and stiff neck. The chiropractor failed to fix it. Lucia has concentrated on strengthening my shoulders and back with a primary focus on not using my neck during this process. Initially it was hard to isolate my neck away from the exercises but with time I have learnt how to. I have had a personal trainer for 8 years and never learnt this before Lucia. I now feel in control of these particular exercises and can relate to anyone who has the same past experience with their neck. I wasn’t expecting this result so it’s been a nice surprise. My neck problem has been a part of my life and I intend to continue with the appropriate exercises as recommended by Lucia so as to minimise the problem. Exercise is a feel good thing, and we should all go the extra mile. I will always budget for it as having a trainer gets more out of a workout and gets me there in the first place, for me anyway. I will keep working hard so I can afford to work out hard! I started to train with Lucia because I went through a change in life whereby I wanted to change from the consistent routine my old trainer had me on. I was bored. I gave Lucia a go and was pleased with the variety of training. It’s nice to know that each time I train I don’t really know what I’m going to be doing Fitness wise I was good but mentally I was not in a good place. Lucia helped with both. I feel stronger and it motivates me to continue. I am excited with the thought of being fit through life.”

Anonymous, 42, Main Beach:

“I have started training to improve general fitness/ strength, particularly as I get older and I am less active with other sports. I have always have maintained a reasonable degree of fitness, however, I was finding that it was difficult to make progress without have assistance. What I’ve experienced from doing personal training – noticing results is definitely motivating and it certainly improves discipline and clears the head before the start of the working day. What I like Most – I enjoy making progress and staying healthy, being pushed beyond what I would be able to do training alone, as well as being able to train in fresh air after working in an office all day. It’s also very convenient being able to walk to each session.”

Anne Slater, 40 Isle of Capri:

“Lucia is an excellent trainer as her exercises are well varied. Lucia makes you do exercises that you would not do on your own which is great for overall results.”

Shawn Aucoin, Gold Coast:

“I heard about Fitness World from gumtree.. I had tried to change my eating and exercise habits before and went to Fitness First but without success and it was very impersonal to train there. I would just like to let the Fitness World team know that you are phenomenal at what you do. When I trained with you it was not only professional but the atmosphere you created was great and comfortable. I have no doubt that you will grow and become very successful.”

Alysa Sutton, 29, Main Beach:

“I started exercising with Fitness World because I was feeling weak and unable to work to maximum capacity. I like the short training sessions, easy to get along with all types of personalities. I feel stronger, fitter, I can work longer and harder, I am very satisfied in general and happy and inspired across the board. It’s the best investment to your life as a whole. Do it!”

Karen Kahn, 55, Surfers Paradise:

“I started training with you guys because my friend has referred me to you, I like how the trainers take their time to teach you, hence you train better, I am feeling much better, stronger, I definitely recommend Fitness World, as I had other trainers before and I think they are the best!”

Janine Macaulay, 30, Main Beach :

“The trainer works on techniques that really pushes me, Noticeable toning and increased strength, Any queries I have had, they have addressed them straight away, definitely recommend.”

Essie Laugharne, 19, Main Beach :

“I started training to get fitter and to lose some weight/ tone up for summer. The trainers are very personable and hold me accountable to my goals and help me get the most out of my training. I have noticed muscle tone in my arms. Its definitely worth it for accountability in reaching your goals which makes me feel like I don’t have to do it by myself.”
