Personal Trainer Sofi - "Consistency and Persistency pays off" Melbourne Personal Trainer

Meet Sofi

Sofi is a Prahran personal trainer. Sofi’s interest in health and fitness came about from her background as an adult and kinder gym instructor. Her occupation as an instructor has been incredibly rewarding on both a personal and professional level, educating both adults and young children on how to get fit and adopt a healthy lifestyle. Sofi has a great passion for health and fitness and her enthusiasm is a great inspiration to all that meet her. She believes in living each day to the fullest, having quality in life and inspiring each and every person that she meets that they too can achieve their goals by acting on their positive thoughts.

Sofi has always been interested in healthy eating and exercise as has her immediate family. Husband, Pierre and son Liam are both cycling enthusiasts. Sofi has also designed an eating plan for her family that involves only unprocessed natural food, ensuring her family remains healthy, full of energy and able to pursue their busy work and sporting commitments. Sofi and her family have a simple philosophy - many illnesses can be prevented through eating wholesome natural unprocessed foods coupled with exercise.

When Liam was born, Sofi took the opportunity to be a stay at home mother for a period of 3 years. Always searching for new challenges, Sofi was inspired to pursue the sport of body sculpting having seen the documentary “The Godfather of Bodies” featuring George Tabban. Sofi commenced training with George and son Michael and within her first year of training, had achieved first place in her Novice category.

As testament to her grit and determination, Sofi has been training since 2003, competed since 2003 and has achieved many accolades placing in the top 3 over her competing career.

You can see her training clients at her home at MBS Prahan.

Personal Training Client - Helen J.

Sofi has been my personal trainer for the last 12 weeks.  Not only has she been my trainer, but my mentor, my strength, believer and now friend.  Her approach to training is relaxed and not stressful and at time okay I admit, fun which is associated with some degree of pain....

Sofi has guided me during the past 12 weeks as I entered myself into a 12 week challenge, working closely with her weight training at MBS Prahran, I have achieved outstanding results.  She has changed my life, my outlook on things and given me the confidence to believe in myself and control myself with food and alcohol, not to mention, making exercise my priority.

Most importantly, Sofi is unlike any trainer, she herself is a figure competitor - therefore she practices what she preaches, from being dedicated to weight training, cardio and following a clean good diet and juggling family life with a child the same age as mine and work commitments she knew how challenging it was !

To achieve the results I did required utmost perseverance and patience, and at times was so hard, I was lucky to have Sofi to talk to when it got hard, as she knew exactly what I was going through - noone else truly understood like she did !
