Testimonials

Sharai Lomman

For me, my health is my number one priority. I will forever be battling the effects of chronic disease and the constant changes it makes on my body, but without the training management and guidance from GCP Fitness, I know my body would be one to add to the list of high risk, sedentary individuals.

My goals have always been focused around maintaining everyday functional movement patterns but over the years training with Gavin, I have found my abilities have become so much more that what I could have imagined. I can Olympic lift (much to the fascination of the male species who sometime occupy the gym!), gymnastics (I can actually complete a handstand without fear my shoulders will give out) and through a customised program, I've been able manage my fatigue through the benefits of weight training.

My occupation also requires a high level of strength and fitness and I find great pleasure in knowing my capabilities match that of my strongest male co-workers :) To find a sympathetic, supportive and inspirational trainer like Gav is truly amazing and I don't doubt that I will be training with him for as long he wants to keep training me!

I have been training with GCP Fitness for just over 16 weeks. During that time my body fat percentage has dropped from over 29% down to 19.8%.

The training is challenging, fun and varied. Gavin is professional and focused on the getting results you want. I couldn't recommend him highly enough!

Debbie Davison

I have had the opportunity to train with Gavin Pratt for several years now and quite frankly wouldn’t train with anyone else as my coach.

Gavin is an amazing coach, very professional but with a very approachable manner about him, you can ask him anything, he listens and cares about exactly what you are saying and does his very best to accommodate you, whether it is an easy explanation or a different approach to a program, such as issues with injuries. He tailors his Strength Bootcamps so he can get the best out of you, and believe me he does!

My husband Jason also trains with GCP Fitness, and our son is now also back for 3 months from a USA basketball college and Gavin has taken him onboard to keep his fitness up to scratch for when he goes back....nothing is to much trouble. I would not hesitate to recommend Gavin to anyone, whether you like training with others or on your own, he is the coach for you. I always told Gavin if he moved I would follow him and that is exactly what I and my family has done with no regrets!

Please check out this website and come down to a training session and you will not regret it.

Margaret Little-Western Australia Dragon Boating

Gavin has an innate knowledge of muscles used in various sports and enormous experience in the fitness industry in general. He has a calm demeanor which masks a fierce determination to make his client do the impossible – again and again. I have enjoyed training with Gavin immensely over a 6 year period. He has taught me so much and now that I have taken on a coaching role he’s also been a great motivator and mentor to me. He has taught me many coaching techniques in such a simple way that I have been able to easily pass them on to the club. Gavin is a dedicated, motivating personal trainer. He never gives up and therefore his results are guaranteed.

Mel Brigulio-Boston- Mother of 2

During these 9 years I've been involved with GCP Fitness, Gavin has motivated me to bring out my best during our sessions, whether that be to push heavier weights, run faster in our cardio sessions or punch harder during boxing...you KNOW you will always be pushed to 110%. I can say that in 5 years I have never used the same program twice. Gavin’s ability to change the way you work your different muscle groups is very creative, you never get bored repeating the same exercises, there’s always something new and inventive coming along. Gavin also trained me during my pregnancy which he was nothing short of fabulous through, I trained right up until 8 months, which I believe helped during my birth. I was extremely confident in his training ability and what exercises I was doing during this time. I would recommend Gavin if you are ready to achieve your fitness goals."

Elsie Evans

I am 68 years of age and have had three shoulder operations. With Gavin’s assistance I have managed to strengthen my shoulders so I am pain free. His programs are varied and because of this I enjoy our sessions. Overall fitness is a priority and every exercise is explained to show which muscles are being strengthened. I would like to thank Gavin for the care and encouragement he has given me while I have been training with him.

Ryan Huxley-Musician

From the first session, Gavin was personable, well learned and sensitive to my goals and experiences. He provided my brother, Neal, and I, with tailored programs and addressed cardiovascular importance, weight training and food consumption and the relevance these all play in maintaining ideal health and well-being. Gavin never expressed judgement in regards to my ability or shortcomings - this was one of the main reasons i trained with him for so long. He also always had a 'back-up' plan should any exercise prove too difficult on any particular day. I enjoyed my training with Gavin immensely and would recommend GCP Fitness to anyone who desires to lose weight or improve their body shape.

Trine Beatty

Gav is a trainer who is not only passionate about what he does, but is knowledgeable and extremely professional. Every time you have a session with Gav, you get something different. So what could easily become a mundane and repetitious experience, is instead interesting, hard and motivating! Yet it's always a program that suits your specific needs. Gav pushes you to your limit, without burning you out. He gives great guidance in all aspects of a healthy lifestyle, but knows there is also a balance in life with having a good time... ...it just means you have to work that bit harder the next time you see him!! I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending GCP Fitness, as I have done in the past with friends.

Jason Millham- Amateur Marathon Racer

I went to GCP Fitness for results and that’s exactly what I got! It helps that Gav's a top bloke as well!

Angela Stuart

I came to Gavin in late 2013 with chronic back issues. I was in a lot of pain and could barely move let alone perform exercises. I had exhausted all other avenues of treatment and was almost about to give up and succumb to my world of pain, but with Gavin's guidance my world started to turned around and I began to make improvements. Today, I am happy to say that I am virtually pain free and stronger than I have ever been! Training with Gavin is so much fun (hard, but fun!). He motivates and inspires me to be the best I can be and has helped make what I thought was impossible possible - He has literally given me my life back. Words can't express how thankful I am for everything this guy has done for me. I can now dream big, train hard and look forward to the future. Thanks Gav - #1 Coach!

Symone Briguligio

Gavin’s toughness, compassion and sense of humour are fantastic traits to have in your personal trainer. Our sessions have always been dynamic in context and I am always looking forward to them!

Ann Lefroy-Triathlete

Gav gave me the motivation, knowledge and skill set necessary to enable me to reach my goal of becoming a competitive Tri athlete. Not only is he incredibly encouraging and friendly, he is also a wealth of practical knowledge with a genuine desire to help his clients meet their individual goals. I particularly appreciated his focus on creating functional and sport specific exercises that truly enhanced my performance. I would leave each personal training session feeling empowered to continue pushing past my comfort zone and achieving goals I had never thought possible.
