My Training style
My personal program design is based around the foundations of mindset coaching, real food nutrition, functional movement, as well as strength and conditioning.
My clients are all shapes, sizes, ages and fitness levels. I specialise in fat loss, physique transformation, balanced lifestyle fitness, rehab specific training, strength and tone, combined with the healing principles of pilates, yoga and meditation.
My fitness philosophy
For my clients to learn the skill-sets to live a sustainable lifestyle in optimum health and fitness, as well as how to apply the systems for success to reach their personal and professional goals. As a trainer, my goal is to educate and motivate as many people as I can to live a healthier and more fulfilling lives physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
"The entire Metabolic Precision experience has been a life-changer. I have more energy, zest and can see my new lifestyle as a viable and easy program to stick-by for the rest of my life. Sofija's guidance and expertise have allowed me to finally feel like me. "
Riannon B - Graphic Designer & Musician
"Sofija is inspirational and highly educated on nutrition and well-being. Originally I found her classes challenging but they are far preferable to a light work-out that some instructors offer. Over time I've experienced massive improvements in my flexibility and mental capability to push through and get the results that I seek. I always leave her class calm and positive. Sofija has been my yogilates teacher for the past three years and I would not have gone elsewhere!"
Rosemary W - Principal Analyst
"Sofija has an extensive skill set in supporting those who, like me, have avoided sports for most of their life and have medical needs that require additional guidance… she introduced me to the wonderful world of nutrition… and goes the extra mile to really personalise each session to ensure that we are training my areas of weaknesses rather than just following a generic routine. "
Fiona B - Primary School Teacher
"Sofija is an awesome coach with a very broad knowledge in personal training, strength training, yoga, pilates and nutrition. She combines all of this to individually tailor her sessions to the personalities, bodies and needs of her clients. Sofija puts an extraordinary effort into helping me achieving my goals. I have learned a great deal about exercising in a sustainable way and about my own body in the almost 2 years that I have been training with her."
Barbara D - HR Data Specialist
"I had been seeing a chiropractor who had been treating me for my sciatica pains that I developed after giving birth to my daughter. My back pains were so bad I had to see her every fortnight. Sofija created for me a program where I’d have to strengthen my core and back. My goal at that time was just to be strong, just to be able to keep up with an active 2 year old, and to slowly prepare my body for another pregnancy if we can. Two months into my Personal Training program and more than a month of not seeing my chiropractor, she commented on how fit I’ve become from the last time she saw me. Our fortnightly consultations have now changed to once every 5 weeks because my back is better. Even family members are seeing the difference, not just physically but emotionally as well. I know I am still a work in progress but with constant guidance and support from Sofija, I know I’ll be able to reach my (initial) goals and more. I am now stronger, fitter, healthier and happier because of the changes I have embraced for myself and body."
