How long have you guys been in business?
Eric Ali and Andrew Corbisiero are the owners of Strength Lab and they have been in the health and fitness industry coaching people for over 10 years.
We brought our combined 20+ years experience together to open Strength Lab in March 2017.
We impart all our knowledge onto our experienced trainers and demand very high standards from them as we are aware of the over saturation of low quality coaches in the industry due to the lack of education and experience.
What makes Strength Lab different from other Personal Trainers and Online Coaches?
The fitness industry in Australia and in fact most countries is fairly loosely regulated. This means the barrier of entry is low, which means there’s a lot more PT’s and coaches out there who maybe haven’t yet cultivated the level of knowledge and experience needed to help someone change their physique in the most effective and healthy way. Adding to this problem, the business model of commercial and semi-commercial gyms in Australia is one which attracts new trainers and tends to spit out the ones who’ve accumulated knowledge and experience.
In short – it’s really hard to find a good personal trainer / online coach, and really easy to find a bad one. All our coaches have years of experience and have trained and coached countless clients while also constantly educating and developing through ongoing education. We never stop learning so we can be up to date with the latest research and training methods to give our clients the best results possible.
We promise this won’t be like any experience you’ve had so far with a PT or Coach. We can’t wait to show you what sets us apart!
Don’t take our word for it though! Have a look through our Facebook and Instagram accounts to get a feel for the approach we take and the knowledge we have (which we like to share around as much as possible).
Do i need to come see you guys in person to get the most out of my coaching?
Not necessarily, but we think it helps.
Since opening we have had a huge influx of people wanting to train with us but it was just not practical as they didn’t live close enough. Thats why we developed our online coaching options!
We understand that you may not live close enough to make it in to our studio to train with us in person but that doesn’t mean you cant work with us. We’ve spent a lot of time and resources developing our online training service and platform so we could reach out and help people beyond our local area.
Our online coaching has become one of our most popular options and we get amazing results. You also have the option of dropping in for ‘in person’ check ins if thats possible otherwise via Skype or phone.
We make online training easy and bring everything you need into one place with our Strength Lab App. In the app you will find;
- Your personalised programs with exercise demonstration videos
- Track your training progress
- Nutrition Plan and Supplement Protocol
- Progress including – Measurements, Pictures and Body Fat
- Chat function with your trainer
This allows you to keep track of everything you need in one place and keep close contact with your trainer every step of the way.
While we like to train our clients in a one on one setting we understand this isn’t always possible or necessary due to proximity and budget.
OK I think this all sounds pretty rad, how much does it cost to work with you guys?
We don’t fit our packages to our clients we find out what each individual client needs and then create a plan and package around that.
If you’re wanting to know what package would be best for you and how much it will be just get in contact with us and we’ll give you a call and go over your goals, current situation and budget and create the best package for you.
