Teaching you discipline and perseverance

Sam Personal Trainer Sydney Inner West

My training philosophy? Only he who can see the invisible can do the impossible. This quote from Frank Gaines sums it up.

Sam Kim, Personal Trainer, Fitness First North Strathfield - Sydney Inner West 

If you’re after a comprehensive strength, conditioning, cardio and all-round life-changing program, personal trainer Sam’s your man. He’ll help you assemble the building blocks of a healthy, meaningful life by teaching you about mental resilience, perseverance and purpose.

Sam is a big fan of heart-pumping HIIT workouts that involve explosive power, flexibility, balance and mental strength. This battle rope workout is a great example of where he’ll take you.
