Frequent questions

What does a session with Define Fitness involve?

A session with our experienced Define Fitness personal trainers will include running, jogging and plyometrics. Also known as “jump training”, plyometrics are exercises based around having muscles exert maximum force in as short a time as possible, with the goal of increasing both speed and power.

We also include body weight exercises, resistance tubing exercises, battle ropes, light dumbbell and kettle bell work. Depending on the package you choose, you might see some heavier equipment (for example in our Tough Enough sessions).

And the best part, you exercise in the great outdoors, breathing in fresh air surrounded by Canberra’s beautiful landscapes.

We are all about you. We tailor a program specifically to suit your needs and you goals. We are with you every step of the way. We are there to plan your sessions, guide you through the process, motivate you and advise you on nutrition, well-being and rest days.

Clients who attend our sessions do not want to waste their time on quick fixes. They are ready to invest in achievable goals that will take them to a healthier, fitter person. From pure beginners wanting to make a start on their fitness and weight management to regular athletes who continue to develop their fitness, we have you covered.
