Good News: Williamstown Personal Training Covid-19 Update.

Due to the Covid-19 regulations and these challenging and unprecedented times, all gyms and fitness centres are closed. Closures will remain until restrictions are lifted from the federal and state government.

Fortify Fitness used to provide strength training mostly within a gym environment.

However, If you’re still looking for personal training in the Williamstown, Port Melbourne and surrounding areas, then we still have you covered!

Matt from Fortify Fitness is now providing 1-on-1 Outdoor and Online Personal Training and Coaching. The same high quality exercises with personal attention, well-mannered, mature and non-intimidating workouts are still available to you. The difference is you now have a choice between 1-on-1 outdoor or in-home online training.

And as soon as these restrictions are lifted, you’ll have the added choice of working with me within a gym environment also.

You may have a chat or make a booking by pressing any of the buttons below.

Tara's google review regarding Matt's gym training sessions.
“Matt has been great to work with. He focuses on getting to know you so he can build a holistic approach to your training. He's very good at being able to judge your headspace upon arrival, and adapt the workout accordingly! I've learnt lots of new techniques, machines and skills whilst working with Matt. Highly recommended”
Sara's google review in response to Matt's fitness training.
“I came across Matt on FB about 5 months ago and have been going to the gym consistently since. Matt’s great because he really catered to my fitness level (which was terrible when I started) and he makes sure I keep on track even when I’m not in the mood to work out. Matts also great at working with all the creaky bits you get when you’re a bit older. I’d definitely recommend Matt if you’re looking for a PT who’ll get you going to the gym on the regular and (dare I say it) enjoying it.”
Kirsten's google review talking about how Matt makes his gym sessions really fun and how excited she is about reaching her training goals.
“Ive been training with Matt now for many months & find him to be extremely motivating & encouraging. He pushes me to limits I would otherwise not go which has lead to my goals being met. He makes the sessions super fun & I look forward to training with him each week. He even organised a group to do Tough Mudder which was awesome.”
Alex's review talking about how Matt learns how your mind works to achieve great training results.
“Need a PT that focuses on more than just changing your body? Matt is your man! He learns how your mind works in conjunction with your body to achieve the best results.”
