What our clients think of our fitness sessions

“I have really enjoyed the circuit sessions, I actually want to get out of bed ! I work in front of a computer all week so it’s a nice change doing push ups in the dirt. My fitness level has increased, & I can actually feel stomach muscles. The trainers make it fun, & adapt the workout to each individual person. I’ve really enjoyed the all-female group atmosphere of circuits & would highly recommend it to any woman with any fitness goal.” – Emily, Melbourne
“I can’t speak highly enough of Carpe Diem Wellbeing – the trainers are amazing. Knowledgeable, approachable & enthusiastic I look forward to every session.  They always bring a smile & a real sense of fun – but don’t be fooled! They will still push you to your limits always encouraging you to go that bit further – but you walk away feeling like you really “worked out” & the time flew by. Best of all you see actual results. I’d always wanted to learn how to run – I could never understand why I could work out at the gym for an hour ok but run 500m & want to pass out. They took it back to basics, teaching me running technique from head to toe.  Thank you!” – Katie, East Melbourne
