As an ex-PT I had high expectations of Jimmy and I must say, my expectations have been met and I have been very impressed. Jimmy cares deeply about my success and has a wealth of knowledge that keeps the training sessions fun, effective and interesting. No two sessions are ever the same and dealing with my injuries is done with ease. Jimmy and Kylie live and breath health and fitness and are both role models of excellence. Their dedication and passion is inspirational.

As a middle-aged man who had consciously steered clear of any form of physical activity or fitness for the better part of the past 25 years, meeting Jimmy marked a significant turning point in my journey toward a healthier lifestyle. Jimmy met me at precisely the point I was in my fitness odyssey, addressing my anxieties concerning my heart health, which had long been neglected. His approach was marked by compassion, expertise, competence, and an unwavering passion to guide me towards becoming the finest version of myself. I extend my heartfelt gratitude to Jimmy for his invaluable assistance and support on this transformative path.

My teen daughters and I are training each week with Kylie, we love our sessions together. Kylie makes it so easy for us taking all the guess work out of our fitness training. It's challenging and we feel each week we are getting stronger. I trained with Jimmy too prior to covid and highly recommend them both. It's a lovely family owned business. 😊

My partner and I have been training with Jimmy for a few months now and although I originally came for the mental health benefits, I feel stronger, fitter and am finding work much easier physically. Jimmy's also been great working with my partner and his knee issues. Nice private studio, would recommend 👍

Having never had a PT before, I’m loving my sessions with Kylie. Not only is she inspiring with her own achievements, Kylie is extremely experienced and has a very caring nature. She knows the exact amount of training required. The Transitional Health and Fitness studio is a great place to go and workout. One of their amazing smoothies afterwards is awesome too. Highly recommend Kylie’s services. Jimmy has also been bringing the tunes, fun and fitness, whipping 7 of our staff into shape. It’s perfect for team building and everyone looks forward to it each week.

If you are wanting a PT that takes the time to listen to your needs, goals, fitness levels and any prior injuries/problem areas and works with you constantly, not just while you are doing your workout then look no further than Jimmy and Kylie at THF!

I have been working with Jimmy for about 6 weeks now and I find he is a great motivator, makes training fun and is always happy. Jimmy makes training enjoyable and gives you hope that you can ultimately reach your goals. I would recommend to anyone who would like to improve their health. Great Studio, very private.

I cannot recommend Kylie & Jimmy enough. The studio is such an amazing space to train and they both are the best in the business. I have never been this happy to workout I love my sessions. I have seen results in just a month, I am so happy. They are so motivating and have really lit back up my self confidence. THF is the best!!!

Jimmy is an inspirational expert personal trainer and I have seen a rapid improvement in my fitness and strength over the past 2 months since beginning workout sessions at Transitional Health and Fitness. Jimmy has been careful with a chronic back injury I have had for many years and is sensitive in giving workout routines based on what my body can cope with - and the great news is my back has been getting better and better with each week of training - which is a huge relief! I highly recommend Transitional Health and Fitness to anyone looking for professional and high quality personal trainers on the Central Coast.
