What Have Previous Attendees Had To Say?

I was worried about feeling judged about not knowing what to do. I didn't end up feeling this way at all, it was a very supportive and friendly environment. Coach Foulds has fantastic knowledge and delivers it in a way which everyone can understand and relate to.

Jes Larsen, Coach, Footscray City Gymnastics Club January 31, 2017

I found it exactly what I needed, some reassurance that I was on the right track and to gain more confidence. I was worried my technique was going to be way off, but it wasn't, and the way things were explained, really made sense to me. I would tell my friends to go and do it so that they themselves can gain more knowledge or so they have a stepping stone into their own training so they aren't completely blindsided!

One of the few people that would make you feel at ease, he is highly respected in my view, and would gain yours really quickly, he doesn't beat around the bush, he is one of the best in the industry

Symone Jayde, Personal Training Student January 31, 2017

It was an incredibly informative session about proper ways to get the maximum out of the most important exercises. My biggest fear would have been coming out of it with no new knowledge. It didn't come true, learnt some very handy stuff. I found out I had been doing simple things wrong for a while and I'm sure many people are doing the same.  I gave the workshop 10/10 because it actually helped.

It was a great session with thorough information and opportunities for practice. I particularly enjoyed the personal feedback relating to my background & limitations. I was expecting that the session would be catered towards my lack of experience and I learnt a lot more than what I expected. The travel distance was my only initial hesitation to attend, but definitely worth it! Coach Foulds has a wealth of knowledge and explains movements clearly & thoroughly. He gives feedback based on your individual abilities & background. An excellent coach!

Jeannie Davidson January 31, 2017

It was great! Go do it! Even if you know nothing, they make you feel welcome and that it's okay to be starting your journey whilst others are upskilling theirs. Coach was very easy to approach with questions, even if they were simply clarifying names of movements/equipment. He makes you feel confident and comfortable to go and try out the gym in a safe way with his evident knowledge in the industry and his passion for helping people.

I was a newbie to the gym and it was daunting walking in. The equipment looked like a deconstructed work site waiting to be assembled. After about 10 mins, I began to feel okay and had learnt how to warm up. I was clearly a newb to the gym, and as I looked around, could see that others were far ahead in their fitness journeys. I was at ease when I heard that one person's warm up is often another person's entire session and that it was okay and no two people are at the same place in their journey. Being told the basics of how to squat (yes I had heard of this move but never knew how to do it properly) 'butt back' was yelled and that made sense. The course is catered to everyone's level.

My biggest fear was that I would be only one with no experience inside a gym and that I would struggle to understand the speech of what being taught and further injure my lower back injuries. Yes they did come true with the first two but I thankfully didn't hurt my lower back as technique was thoroughly shown and corrected with feedback. Also the use of broomsticks for practice was great before adding the actual barbell which was weighted. In terms of overcoming the noise factor and speech, I tried to position myself so I could lipread, I read the booklet pages relating to that section and watched intently the visual demonstrations and then let other participants go first with practice so I could ensure I had a good idea before trying it myself.

I specifically liked that a booklet was handed out at the beginning. I am Deaf and the gym was noisy, so it was evident I'd need to rely on lip reading. But Steve performed detail demonstrations which helped with the detailed descriptions in the book. Also the feedback and advice when trying out the movements was great! Really helped me to judge if what I felt (new muscles I'd forgotten I had) was doing it correctly.

Yvette Thompson January 31, 2017

When I wanted to learn Brazilian Jiu Jitsu I approached my now long time coach John Will, and have now been an affiliate Will Machado BJJ instructor for over 15 years. When I wanted to enhance my cold blade skills and defence a few years ago I approached Ray Floro, which now I'm an Floro Fighting Systems instructor.
There's an old saying that "if you want to be the best you need to train with the best!"

Today, I was fortunate to learn weight lifting essential fundamentals and keys to longevity in such a physical life from my long time friends Steve Foulds. The respect I have for Steve stems back to when we used to meet John Will for private lessons, before both of us had serious back issues (not BJJ caused but work related for both of us around the same time). Both of us have taken directions that used what we learned from recovery to become better coaches and focus on longevity for ourselves and those we pass skills on to. Steve trains Personal trainers, a coach's coach. His knowledge has seen him train around the world and bring it back to Melbourne.
Today I experienced 3 and a bit hours of learning how to prepare and activate the correct muscles in the right firing order. From beginners to weight lifting and gym equipment to professional personal trainers in attendance, today was jam packed with little gold nuggets of wisdom. I'll be looking to bring him to Integrity MAA for a seminar soon.
Cheers for an awesome seminar Steve
