Rusty

Some say Rusty taught Chuck Norris all he knows. Others say he’s worshipped as a demi-god in some islands in the Pacific. Either way, he’s a legend with an infectious devotion to fitness. His emphasis on form and technique is perfect for anyone - whether it’s your 1st or 500th time in the studio!

Rachel

She is a certified personal trainer and has a qualification in advanced sports nutrition... so she knows a thing or two about how to look and feel awesome!

He believes in keeping it consistent, enjoyable and fun - however don’t be fooled... this welshman wants results (Viking style).

Dan
WEHO / STUD CITY

We're not sure how Dan majored in Exercise and Sports Science given he cannot sit or stand still for a second! Those same traits however saved him from being squashed in the sporting arena having competed at state level in Australian Football and also being accepted into the Australian training squad for the break neck Winter Olympic sport of Skeleton Sliding. These days you may just catch him celebrating at the end of an awesome Training Mate class doing his slow motion cowboy happy dance.....YIIII HAAAAAAAA!

Eddy
WEHO / STUD CITY / SAMO

Growing up on Sydney's north shore, Eddy was a cheeky little rascal who couldn't sit still and never took anything seriously except for sport. Not much has changed since then. Eddy played soccer and raced in endurance multi sport events all over the world until his early 20s, returning to Santa Monica every Summer where he works as an ocean lifeguard. Half fitness fanatic, half social butterfly, Eddy loves an ice cold beer with his mates as much as he enjoys his crazy athletic adventures. Eddy takes his infectious positivity and good vibes everywhere he goes... just don't expect him to go easy on you when you come to one of his classes!

Tommy boy is one tall glass of water that certainly won't leave you thirsty! Hailing from Perth, fitness has always been a part of his life. Whether it's playing Aussie Rules football or practicing yoga and pilates, he's always up for a good sweat and loves motivating people through his awesome dance moves and techno jazz. Fun fact: if he didn't trim his eyebrows he'd definitely be rocking a unibrow.
