I have been training with Dereck for over a year since I moved to Port Melbourne and have been very impressed with his professionalism and help in maintains my fitness goals of fitness for life. As a mature client with a medical history it was important for me to find a trainer who could constantly adapt his PT skills to meet my requirements - from increasing flexibility - core strength and overall health and well being! He has also incorporated some strengthening exercises to assist my golf fitness.

Dereck has been training me for 3 years now gradually expanding my perception of what I am capable of and then working with me to achieve levels I would have not thought possible. He has done so in such a way that, while challenged, I have felt totally safe and have never had any injury. It has been fun and I look forward to every session we have even if it is sometimes an effort to get out of bed on cold winter mornings. I feel stronger and healthier than ever.
