- “The Chodat Fitness team are energetic, enthusiastic, encouraging dedicated and 100% professional! My friends trained with Chodat Fitness for years prior to me I felt worried I wasn’t fit enough, however there was no need we are all the same! Even though we are all at different fitness levels, Chodat Fitness looks after each and every one of us on a personal level. I love that at training you never know what you’re going to get, it’s always a different program and the location changes within the session. Mixing it up is the key! Chodat Fitness provides flexible times and you can choose the type of training best for you. My children have also had the opportunity to train with Chodat’ Kids Fun Fitness, and love it! I recently have trained for City 2 Surf and did my first triathlon last February Chodat Fitness helped achieve these goals. Training with Chodat Fitness helps me enjoy this wonderful beach front fitness lifestyle at South Beach Wollongong. Go Chodat Fitness! You cannot put a price on your health! Team Chodat Fitness for Life!”
– Cheryl Glenn
- “Chodat Fitness; just my thoughts about what a valuable asset you are! Our family has been involved with Chodat Fitness for over 7 years, I could not recommend Lukas and the group of trainers any more highly. My son has been competing at an international level in his sport during this time and whether it be developing and implementing training programs, mentoring and sports psychology or complex injury management Lukas has always gone above and beyond. I personally have been actively involved with Chodat fitness for the last 3 years not only have they helped me achieve and exceed my weight and fitness goals, but they also have given me a renewed focus on life. Every one of his trainers has the same ‘can do’ attitude. Would I recommend Chodat fitness? I already do to everyone!”
