We are pretty lucky to live in sunny Queensland where we can exercise outdoors without enduring frost bite and according to our readers there are plenty of personal trainers out there willing to put us through our paces on the Kangaroo Point stairs, up Mount Coot-tha or the along the banks of the beautiful Brissy river. So we put the question out there and boy did you guys deliver!

When it comes to dishing out burpees, push ups and other necessary torture enjoyable workouts, Brisbanites, you revealed 100’s of your favourite personal trainers.

So without further ado, here are your top 10 picks for Brisbane’s best personal trainers.

James Stewart | JS-PT


A standard session with James Stewart will consist of anything but running on a treadmill. Think battle ropes, dumbbells, tyres, Swiss balls and TRX. Grab your bestie and hold each other accountable with some of James’ awesome group fitness sessions at JS-PT!

Tammy T | Rockit Fit

Brisbane City & Northside

Any PT that prescribes ‘Rockit Fit Doughnuts’ as part of their nutrition plan, is a winner in our eyes! Did we mention Tammy T runs epic Rockit Raves as workouts? With a motto of ‘sweat, squats and rock ‘n’ roll we are definitely sold on Rockit PT.

Mel Quinn | The Gap Health & Racquet Club

The Gap

It’s all happening at The Gap Health & Racquet Club and Mel Quinn is leading the change. With every type of class imaginable from one on one sessions to group body pump and boot camp style training, there is something for everyone to get their heart racing. Plus if you’re up for a challenge, Mel and the team get behind everything from Bridge to Brisbane to Spartan Race. Exercise with a feel good factor #winning.

Chris Parson | Body By Design


If you hail from Springfield, then there’s no doubt you’d be familiar with Chris from Body By Design. Running awesome group sessions including Boxing, Mums & Bubs and the intense Military workout, Chris will definitely have you working up a sweat. Tempted? Test out Chris’s sessions on a Monday with free boot camp.

Ezra Taylor | Concrete Training and Movement


Ezra Taylor of Concrete Training and Movement has you covered no matter your level of fitness. Focusing on the principles of Calisthenics Training, Ezra also looks at strength & conditioning, mobility and injury rehabilitation as well as athlete development. So if the last workout you can remember was walking around the Indro shopping centre, Ezra will ease you back into it.

Dan Cooper | Coops Fitness


With a guarantee of increasing energy levels and decreasing stress levels within 5 weeks or less, as well as group fitness classes for the ‘late riser’, I can understand why Dan Cooper is a popular PT. Where do I sign up?

Chantal Coleman | Ritual HQ

The Gap

Chantal Coleman has done an awesome job of building a community at Ritual HQ. From outdoor boot camps to weekly challenges and group events, it’s easy to see why Chantal has made the list. One week of her boxing class and you’ll be back for more!

Robert McMaster | 1RM Training

Brisbane City

Making bets on State of Origin in terms of burpees, we sure like Rob’s training style! Rob and the1RM team make the most of living in beautiful Brissy by training outdoors and using the natural environment to help them mix up every session. Exercise and Vitamin D is a solid a win-win.

Ben Murphy | Witness the Fitness


Ben Murphy of Witness the Fitness has been changing the lives of hundreds of western suburbs residents for many years. With an 8 Week Challenge that focuses on your whole lifestyle as well as a unique Transformation and Performance Centre, Ben is definitely worth hitting up if you lifestyle and eating habits are in need of an overhaul.
