WHO WE ARE

"We as a team of Online Trainers have the common goal of helping children and adults increase their confidence and have a better quality of life”. - Head Trainer, Jonathan

Welcome to Do It Yourself Personal Training (DIYPT) brought to you by Eyes on the Prize PT Pty Ltd.
Before we make this all about you and your journey to good health and body confidence, let us tell you a bit about who we are.

 

The background story

We created DIYPT in November 2014 to help families establish healthy habits so they can be fit and healthy long term. 

We provided face to face one on one PT sessions and group boxing sessions. We then developed an online program with training videos that our clients can follow to exercise in their own time.

Then in March 2020, the world changed.
It got us thinking…
“How are we going to nurture our community and give them the continued support they need when we can’t always see them in person?”

The answer was right in front of us - we were already running the sessions on Zoom for those who wanted to stay at home!
So online was the answer.

And that’s when we realised that the future of DIYPT was the Online Gym.
With 19 virtual workouts to choose from throughout the week, we make it:

  • easy to be a part of and setup;
  • convenient with no need to pack, get ready, drive, find parking, find a babysitter, just to go to the gym for an hour and;  
  • we make it fun and engaging with our LIVE workouts all in the comfort of your own home.

CORPORATE TEAM BONDING

 

There are more and more people either working from home or working remotely. Companies have a challenge, not only helping their team with their health and wellbeing but also to keep team morale up in a working from home environment.

We, at DIYPT, run online fitness classes as a team bonding initiative to help your staff members feel less stress, more energised and happy so they can improve their mental and physical health. 

As a result, your team are less likely to to suffer from health problems which will result in less sick days and more productivity.  

The type of classes vary depending on the Company requirements. We can run:

  • a fitness dance class;
  • an all body resistance class;
  • a cardio class;
  • fitness games

The sessions go for 45 minutes and usually once a week as consistency is key to reap the health and fitness benefits. 

Furthermore, we offer an additional healthy cooking workshop once a month which we run as a team building exercise to share healthy and tasty recipes easily made quickly and conveniently by your very busy team members.

 

Packages (Cost to be shared on request):

  •  The Well-Being Package: 45 min Fitness session once a week and an additional exercise program for the other days that your staff can do on their own via our app, MyClub Fitness. 
  • The Starter Package: 45 min Fitness session once a week without the additional exercise program. 
  • Additional Cooking Challenge: 1 hour online cooking workshop (additional to the above packages). 

To learn more about our packages or for more information please contact us.

CORPORATE HEALTH SEMINARS

When I worked in a Corporate role, this was a typical day…

I have a soft spot for our Corporate Health Seminars because I used to work in a Corporate role for 10 years so I understand with a high performing business comes high pressure work and a busy schedule, plus the busyness of your personal life. So the focus on health and fitness can take a backseat.

In addition, stress is ever so present so I run corporate health seminars to empower people with tips and techniques around stress, rest, nutrition and exercise.

Companies we’ve ran seminars for are:

  • ANZ Bank
  • Citi Bank
  • Commonwealth Bank of Australia
  • CBP Lawyers
  • Fitness First
  • KPMG
  • IQ Group
  • Maxwell and Co
  • MCW Lawyers
  • Mr Vitamins
  • PM Partners
  • Study Group

Here’s a video showing our seminars in action to give you an insight. If you believe your company would benefit, contact us.

ACTIVE KIDS PROGRAM

In 2017-18, one quarter (24.9%) of children aged 2 to 17 years were overweight or obese. 16.7% were overweight and 8.2% were obese. (Australian Bureau of Statistics)

Furthermore, the rate of overweight children in this same age group has increased from 10.2% (1985) to 20.6% (2014). That's more than double in just under 30 years! 

Trinh and I have 2 young boys and the moment my eldest son Brian was born, I dedicated myself to creating fitness programs for kids of various ages from 8 years old to 16 years old and of different activity levels, due to these alarming statistics.

Program outcomes:

Our program use a combination of interactive games, fun challenges and a variety of sports with the following desired outcomes:

  • Increase all aspects of fitness eg. coordination, balance, speed
  • Increase confidence and self-esteem
  • Improve discipline
  • Burn excess energy
  • Improve posture
  • Improve mental health eg. focus, motivation in school and cognition
  • Increase social skills

Testimonies:

“Holsworthy Defence Family Group and I had the pleasure of working alongside Jonathan from DIYPT to bring the Boxing Academy for Teenagers Program to the kids in our local community. It was a great success all round.

The kids rocked up each week on time and happily eager to start. 

Jonathan was able to build a rapport with each person attending which I believe helped in the success of the program.

In my own children alone, I saw improved social interactions as well as better self confidence and physical improvement. 

We would happily run this program again with DIYPT and I would highly recommend it to anyone interested. 

You have nothing to lose and so much to gain”.

Kylie Booski, President - Holsworthy Defence Family Group

 

“Jonathan’s Fitness for Kids program is a perfect fit for our school sports day because it is very different to the other sports that we offer. It fills in the gap of having a sport that explores other aspects of fitness like balance and strength that our other sports don’t cover.

He encourages all students of all physical fitness levels and capabilities to give all the different fitness games and drills a go, even if they don’t do it for the entire length of time, at least they tried it.

Jonathan has been running his program with us since January 2021. Before that he was with our Senior College in Casula for 3 years.

He is the ultimate professional. He knows how to work with teenagers of all ages and get the best out of them”.

Jovan Miladinovic, All Saints Catholic College

 

“The DIYPT Fitness for Kids program has been a success going by what I’ve personally experienced as well as the positive feedback I’ve received from the supervising Teachers and students. 

The Trainers make it as fun as possible and keep it highly engaging. They encourage all students of all physical fitness levels and capabilities to give all the different fitness games and drills a go.

The Trainers are the ultimate professionals. They know how to work with kids of all ages and get the best out of them.

I highly recommend Jonathan and his team. His program should be mandatory in all schools”.

Ivy Leabres, Mt Pritchard Public School

 

“ Jonathan is a fair, firm and fun boxing instructor who developed a great rapport with the students during the program. 

Each session had consistency in his expectations for their boxing technique, which gave the students something to continue developing as the program went on. As well as developing their technique, Jonathan would introduce a new element to the workout each session either in the form of fun warm up game or a sparring activity to keep the students engaged and moving.

He leads by example and has no hesitation to get amongst the students and spar with them to spur them on.

Jonathan's sessions gave students of all physical fitness levels and capabilities an opportunity to get involved.

He used his time with the students at All Saints Catholic Senior College to not only get them motivated and moving but he observed the way they work with each other and challenge themselves. In the final session he celebrated the student’s achievements by awarding single students for their teamwork and technique. A small gesture that was greatly appreciated by the students.

I have no hesitation in recommending Jonathan for any future school boxing/fitness bootcamps”.

Raelene, All Saints Catholic Senior College
