Trainer / Backpacking Coach



Hi, I'm Coach Josh Wood.

I am a Personal Trainer and Backpacking Coach who lives in Hobart, Tasmania. My goal is to help people find their passion for activity. I work in the realm where training meets real world adventure. My training philosophy that the ability to be physically active is a gift, and exercise can be the highpoint of your day! My goal is to help you build yourself up in pursuit of your goals, and help you achieve your best self.

I joined the fitness industry beginning in 2009 when I started coaching Mixed Martial Arts. Since then I’ve coached at a women only strength facility (Melbourne), a boxing gym (Melbourne), a boutique personal training and kickboxing studio (British Columbia), and now at Amplify Fitness in Hobart. I have a broad training background, having competed in Boxing, Powerlifting, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Plus, with qualifications in health science, complementary medicine, coaching, and education I can provide a unique and tailored experience to every client. My focus is on getting people strong, fit, and capable in any arena.
