Life before Vale Tudo
Before joining VTT I’d never set foot inside a conventional gym or tried proper weight training. I was quite fit & healthy through calisthenics training. I happened taking a break from my usual training regime, when I ran into an old friend at a party who convinced me to come along for a class. Roughly 3 years on and I’ve never looked back.
Since joining VTT I’ve progressed in my training a lot: I thought when I joined I was fit, but I had no idea. I’ve learned to listen to my body, focus on my technique and learned that I always have more to give each session, even when I’m ready to tap out. Staying consistent and putting in 100% is not something that naturally occurs. I’ve had to teach myself to maintain that.
Looking back at how far I’ve come, my fitness has dramatically improved. I’ve met so many awesome people and in turn made some life-long friends. As well, the attitude I had about myself, and about life in general, has shifted into a really positive space. But most importantly, my kids are witnessing their mum grow into a more healthy, focused, dedicated, and less stressed person, and it’s inspiring them to push themselves to grow too.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT VTT
VTT is not only a gym but an amazing community!!! I was new to the area and joined the gym knowing nobody and one year later, I feel as though I have made so many friendships!! The trainers are amazing people who actually care about you. I appreciate how they aren’t afraid to challenge me and get me out of my comfort zone, yet in such a supportive and healthy way! Being an ex-college athlete, I feel when I’m training at VTT, I’m training like how I did in college!!! A team environment where everyone is so supportive! I wasn’t always an early bird, but now I love waking up and look forward to my 7am classes!!! I’m always greeted with smiles and hugs and always end the classes with a coffee date with some of my gym gal pals! This isn’t just a gym, but a safe, supportive, loving and FUN environment with exceptional human beings! 💖
I first heard about VT through my cousin Josh. I figured I'd give it a go and I have been here ever since. The best part about it is that the gym is suitable for all. Whatever ability you have, you come in and get it done. Trainers will adjust exercises according to your ability and the community is great. Everyone is there to train but most importantly have a good laugh.
Vale Tudo Zetland isn’t just a place where I exercise; it’s a sanctuary that has brought me joy, strength, and an incredible support system. This gem of a gym has become my second home, where everyone is not just a gym buddy but also each other’s biggest cheerleaders. Trust me, it’s like having a personal fan club every time you hit the ECHO bike. As soon as you step foot through those doors, you’re greeted with high-fives, encouraging smiles, and a whole lot of positive energy. I can confidently say that I’ve never felt fitter or stronger. The trainers here are exceptional, guiding me with their expertise and ensuring I’m always on the right track. Thanks to their guidance and the supportive environment, I’ve surpassed my own expectations and achieved fitness goals I never thought possible.
I have been training at VTT for about 2 years ago. I love the variety and structure of the training. Even through peaks and troughs of fitness after returning from surgery, the classes are always challenging but achievable and safe with a strong focus on technique. All the trainers are really knowledgeable, approachable and encouraging. VTT has a carefully planned training cycle with an emphasis on setting, tracking, and achieving personal goals and in the time that I have been there I have seen so much improvement and progress in my strength, fitness and confidence. I love the vibe and community. Everyone is so friendly and loves a good laugh, until the timer starts, and everyone gives 100%. Having a community of trainers and members that encourage you and celebrate your progress is what makes you show up and push that little bit harder when you feel like you have no gas left in the tank. Why VTT? I think the question should be, why not? 😉 haha
I’ve been training at VTT for roughly 2 years now. I love the intensity of the classes and how they’re catered to all levels of fitness and the community that trains there is the best. I was looking for a gym that could get me back training in a group environment and also have a trainer to push me when I don’t push myself - and found VTT Zetland. The thing I love about VTT by far is the people I train with, I’ve made so many friends through this gym and it’s taught me to love going to the gym again. VTT has changed my life by getting me back into routine again, getting me to love the gym again, to love the process and to push my body more than I’ve known I could.
A friend of mine dragged me into VT 18 months ago and I've never looked back. I love that the training gives me structure and I have so much trust in the coaches. They know how to motivate each person individually and I always work harder at VT than I would alone. VT has given me that sense of truly belonging to a community. No matter what energy I walk in the door with, I always walk out feeling proud and recharged. Before joining VT I had isolated myself. I was training alone and I had social anxiety. I've now formed friendships with like-minded people and I feel stronger and more athletic than I've ever been.
When I joined VTT, I had the intention to join for 6 months, then quit. That was 12 months ago. I wanted to see if I push myself further especially with strength as historically I had done more cardio. The issue being however I didn’t have the know-how. VTT provided safe training methods and structure which has ultimately lead to results - that’s why I stayed on. There is a huge sense of community (which is lead by the staff), an environment of positivity and encouragement to test, push and better yourself. In terms of activity, I enjoy the variety and structure. I highly recommend VTT to anyone of any stage of their fitness journey.

I love that VTT is all about the community. The workouts are designed for all types of fitness levels and are constantly being progressed by the trainers. The staff are very friendly and all the members are very chatty. Made me feel very comfortable. I was quickly able to be myself. I particularly love the morning sessions. Every session is different and I can honestly say I’ve never left feeling unsatisfied. VTT has given me back my identity and love for training. Not only am I getting fitter and stronger but generally mentally feel a lot better.
I chose VTT because I was local to the area and I like the style of training and flexibility with class times when working shift work. I started with the Unleash program and by the end of the challenge I found myself stronger, fitter and more motivated to workout to keep increasing my fitness level. I am never disappointed by a workout, particularly the VTT hybrid classes which always guarantee a good sweat-fest and release of good endorphins. VTT has changed my life in the way that I look forward to working out. I now make exercising a priority in my day as I know I will feel great after each session.

The community and culture at VTT is a big plus and keeps me going - quality interactions and having a laugh together every now and then!"

VTT has changed my life. I have found a gym where I feel totally comfortable in my own skin. I have made beautiful friendships and I actually love and look forward to going every day and I am mentally and physically stronger for being a part of VTT!
I've dabbled in many fitness styles over the years and was ready for a new challenge. VTT intrigued me and I was excited to try something new. It's my happy place. I love our gym community, the push from our trainers, how much we laugh through a hard sweat sesh; its not a need, its a want! VTT has massively helped my purpose, my drive and my journey. It has pushed the boundaries of what I thought I could never do and has redefined that.
I chose VTT for the variety of workouts they have and the excellent coaches they have. The things I love about VTT is the community of like-minded people, the friendly environment and everyone is there having a crack trying to better themselves. I found a gym that I look forward to going to every day where I can improve my fitness and learn to lift weights correctly through the knowledge of the coaches and make new friends.
I chose VTTP due to their diversity with their programs and family like atmosphere. I love that Coaches are unbelievably knowledgeable, super friendly, will push you to your limit and help you reach your goals! VTTP has brought a whole new level of enjoyment to exercise in my life. Seeing results in myself each session is an unreal feeling and keeps me coming back from more!
"First time ever walking into a gym... experienced the most amazing welcome from everybody. O.M.G... amazing strength and conditioning classes. Trainers are amazing. Super clean and friendly. Love it!"
"I love training at Vale Tudo so much! Troy and the team are so welcoming and really know how to get results. The workouts are tough but there are always easier options if you feel like you can’t go as hard as everyone else. It’s so hard to find a friendly, inviting and non-intimidating gym in Sydney, so happy I found Vale Tudo. Even the people that train at Vale Tudo are so nice and always encourage each other to try their best! Definitely recommend."
"Great class today. I have not trained in years and felt that I was made to feel very comfortable and motivated by the rest of class. Great vibe and great exercises, can't wait to get back into the next class."
"I've been training at Vale Tudo for the past 4 years and I absolutely love it. The trainers are fantastic, we're one big family, the members are amazing, it's just a great atmosphere and great vibe."

"I love training at Vale Tudo. The trainers are dedicated to helping you achieve your goals, the classes are always different and you'll make friends here for life. If motivation is what you need, turn up and they'll take care of the rest. I've never been overly into fitness but since joining Vale Tudo, I'm the fittest and strongest I've ever been. So thanks Troy and team. Keep up the great work."
