What People have to say about Amplify Fitness


You will surprise yourself

After over two years training with Dan I can honestly say that getting over my nerves and making that first appointment has been the best thing I've ever done for myself. I'm so lucky to have found a trainer who genuinely want to see his clients succeeding, and the faith he has in me makes me want to prove him right. Despite initial fears that I was signing up for a scary trainer with a bunch of boring, one-size-fits-all workouts, Dan has managed to keep me engaged in a constant stream of challenging PT, group sessions and home workouts that have kept me interested for far longer than I ever expected, and I have a good feeling that this will continue well into the future. I recently took a three month break to travel, and although my confidence in my level of fitness led me to some amazing experiences I was incredibly nervous on my return that I would feel like I had lost too much ground and become discouraged. Dan was so understanding of my fears and honest with what I should expect that the backwards steps I had made didn't seem like such a big deal after all, and though I still grumble to myself about letting my progress slip I'm back on my way. Dan seems to attract the kind of client base who encourage, support and occasionally compete with each other to do better, and through his group sessions I've met a fantastic community of like-minded people. I used to be so sure that I wasn't doing well enough that I was too self conscious to be seen trying, but under his guidance I have taken part in fitness events I would never have thought myself capable of, and I'm pretty sure now that nobody was ever staring at me! As someone who had never enjoyed getting active, nobody is more surprised than I am that two and a bit years down the track I run, ride, skip, hula hoop, push, pull and lift things, and that I like it so much I get cross when I'm forced to miss a session! The first step is the hardest one to take, and I'm so glad to have taken it, and all the following ones, with Dan.


Fun and challenging

I really enjoy going to PT. They are both fun and challenging. Dan is great at motivating us to do our best then just a bit more.


The perfect blend...

In my opinion, what Dan has going is the perfect blend of fun and Exercise. Such a wide range of sets, exercises and challenges. No two are the same. Dan shows his experience and knowledge of body movement and keen eye for technique improvement without falter. Whether it be a group session or a one-on-one, he never misses a beat, stroke or jump. For example, when I started I could barely lift myself for a pushup, I could hardly run 50 paces and I had flabby edges. Now I'm up over 20 pushups in a row and climbing, my cardio has improved tenfold and to tone up the softer edges, I found muscles I never knew I had! Dan is good. Really good. I wouldn't go anywhere else. The group sessions I attend are great fun, I almost always leave with a grin on my face and Dan is flexible so if I have another commitment it’s possible to swap and change so I don't miss anything.


Found my place

For most of my adult life I’ve struggled with weight, exercise, motivation and healthy living. I’ve attempted most fad diets to lose as much weight as possible in the shortest possible time frame. When I say I’ve attempted exercising in the past, I mean I’ve donated a large sum of money to several gyms to maybe go once or twice and put in what I convinced myself to be a decent effort. All through this, shock horror, I was unable to get any sustainable results. When I started training with Dan, I finally felt like I had found my place. A place where I was not self-conscious or judged for my non-existent fitness level, where I felt fully supported in what I was doing and encouraged beyond what I have experienced before. With Dan’s support, I have been able to commit to achieving my goals and doing so in the healthiest way. Dan has been able to encourage and motivate me when I’ve become a little lost and has been able to create a safe, welcoming, comfortable and enjoyable place to exercise, achieve our goals, and create new friendships! If you’re ready to make a change, to commit to something, to let go of the things that are holding you back from achieving your goals, see Dan. Dan Toohey Personal Training has helped me achieve so many of my goals, and push myself harder than I ever have before!


Hard work, good fun...great results

I started a 12 week group program with Dan Toohey not very confident that I would be able to do it. After the first week I was ready to quit, but I went back. I have just completed my 12 weeks and I am converted. Dan has a soft nature but gets you working without realising. Dan made the experience gratifying; he knows what you are capable of even if you don't. I joined with a group of friends; we work hard but also have a lot of fun. I have seen great results in just 12 weeks; I have lost weight, gained muscle and feel fantastic, bring on the next 12 weeks. I would and have highly recommended joining Dan in a training program, being it in a group or on your own.


It's the little things

I didn't notice the little things adding up. Parking closer to town, buying ready made meals instead of cooking. I had met the love of my life and went travelling. I began making excuses and before I knew it, exercise became a scary word. After getting frustrated with my own attempts at exercise, I decided it was time to get some help to achieve my goals. Dan made it clear that simply by deciding to take that step, I was on a healthier road. Dan provided me with a flexible regime to fit around family and my shift-work and set achievable challenges each week. Three things that impressed me were Dan's knowledge base, his support and his honesty. Dan was able to instruct and correct my technique so I was working on my strength without causing injury. Dan was supportive when I faced challenges both in and out of class. He provided me with the morivation to push through and the wisdom of when to take a step back. I was suprised at how comfortable I felt, never feeling judged or embarrassed as I had experienced when stepping into a gym. Dan was also very honest and reminded me of the role I play in achieving my goals. If you need to make a change and want results. If you expect professionalism in a supportive environment. If you want great value for your health AND your money, call Dan, just like I did.


Getting it done, but still having fun

I've really enjoyed Dan's style of training. Not only does he get the best out of you (even when you think you've got nothing left) but he also makes training enjoyable with his quick wit and sense of humour. He's a great guy who gets the job done!


Looking forward to training each week

You should know that before I started training with [Dan] that I could not stick to any fitness schedule for longer than 2 months. You have made training something to look forward to, just by the way you know each and everyone of your clients, the way you know when to push and/or be supportive, every session is actually fun and last but not least your sense of humour always helps us get through when we feel like giving up!!
