Puffing Billy 2011Jamie Smith

Owner & Manager

Having over 15 years experience in the fitness industry, with the majority of those being in Personal Training, I have developed a great rapport with my clients which has enabled me in helping them to become fitter, happier and healthier.

My mission is to be able to help anyone that walks through our front door to the best of my ability. Personal “Specific” Training offers the benefits of working directly with each individuals current capabilities always keeping the goal of the client as the main focus.

My motivation as a trainer is to help my clients realise and achieve more than they ever thought possible. Too often I meet people who are not reaching their full potential due to a lack of self believe in themselves and what they are capable of… working with Next Phase will help you to unlock this potential.

Over the past 3 years I have been competing in Ultra Marathon Running, it started with the goal of completing the Melbourne Marathon for the 2nd time and escalated from there… Having participating in Ultra Marathons in the last few years – including the highlight of my personal goals to date – 75 – 100km trail runs through areas such as the Blue Mountains, The Great Ocean Road  and the Victorian Alpine region.

I set myself these goals to challenge myself and to test and strengthen my capabilities. I have proven to myself that with hard work, self believe and determination I too can do more than I previously thought possible. Who would have thought that this was achievable since when I first started running I would be spent after jogging 2kms!!!
