“Thank you very much for all your help as my PT! I really appreciate your enthusiasm in everything I do. It’s so encouraging having you so interested in my fitness, how often I exercise, making sure I exercise properly for the best results and what I am eating. You push me every sessions to do more than I think I can and it’s difficult but so satisfying afterwards! Thanks again!”

“Forget about the usual chit chat half pie training session with your previous/current PT … step into Kate’s office!!! As soon as your time starts to the very last second of your session you are working HARD. If you want to sweat, hurt but feel rewarded at the same time then Kate is the PT for you!!”

“Im very grateful for Kate’s help in whipping me back into shape. I gained 8kg and became very flabby and unhealthy in university because of sedentary lifestyle. Losing weight and getting fit on my own seemed impossible and I became discouraged. However the inability to wear pretty clothes drove me to look for help. I decided to engage a personal trainer despite initial skepticism and I have never regretted it. Kate is absolutely professional in work ethics. She arrives early for trainings and supervises me very closely during training sessions, making full use of every second in the hour long training sessions. She is well-qualified and knowledgeable, making weights training completely safe as well as interesting for an amateur like me. She is a trainer who walks the talk, therefore her advice carries much weight and she was an inspiration to me. Even now, we remain friends and in contact, and she avails herself to answering my questions still even though she had moved to New Zealand. Thanks to her, I no longer have the misconception that weights training makes me big & bulky. I lost 6kg in 30 sessions, my fat % decreased markedly, and my endurance and stamina improved tremendously. A million thanks, Kate!”
“Kate is a fantastic Personal Trainer!
She is very positive and keeps me motivated.
She suggest exercise programs that are personalised and challenging by using a combination of different methods, like Muay Thai Boxing, weights and cardio training.
I really enjoy my training sessions with Kate and would recommend her as a trainer for anyone wanting a positive result.”

“Kate has so much energy. You will always have fun at her sessions! Her dedication and motivation to her own sport, radiates from herself to you. Who doesn’t like taking a little bit of frustration out on a punching bag and pads!!! She picks up how far you can challenge yourself and has a way to push you just that little bit further, without you even realising!!! Kate always has a smile on her face, she is always bubbly, which encourages me to want to push through any session she is taking me through. With Kate’s fitness and Muay Thai experience, she is definitely one trainer I would recommend. I relate to her because she has a young family that she manages well, so organisation and being time productive are just a couple of her strong points. She puts lots of variety into your sessions, you will never get bored.”Nerissa Calkin
Kate is a great trainer. She motivates you to do more and keep going. However, she knows when you have reached your limit and she needs to back off. That is what is great about her! She also looks great! I want to look like her! She will make sure I do.

Kate has turned me from a gym-hater/exercise-avoider into someone who now enjoys the challenge of a hard-core workout in a gym environment. She is always professional and encouraging. She organizes me in such a way as I only have to think about turning up and keeping up with her varied and always fun work-out regimes. I really feel she has taken the time to get to know me, my fears and my physical glitches to design workouts that engage.
I would highly recommend her to anyone at any stage in their personal training just to be refreshed and inspired, plus to all those people like me who never thought formal exercise was for them!

I signed up with Kate for a 6 weeks program with a friend of mine Hayley. I had just finished a 12 weeks LBN course with Minda and was keen to increase my level of fitness by another notch! It was definitely the way to go…. Kate showed a level of dedication I have not seen before. Not only did she provide the 1 hour session I was expecting but lots of ‘extras’ such as well organised written programs for us to follow and amp; keep, expertise in Muay Thai boxing and our very own set of wraps! Phone calls and amp; facebook messages to keep us motivated etcs. The sessions were always fun… but I would really like to BAN burpees from the program. (Hee Hee) Working out with a partner made it an affordable way to go and amp; kept the level of dedication up there until the end! Would love to repeat the experience- maybe with Kate’s planned team training with the FIGHTER GIRLS? I’d sign up in an instant! Thanks Kate! You are great!

I highly recommend Kate Bridgeman to anyone thinking about getting in shape. A friend of mine and myself decided to take on 6 weeks of training with her. During this time, I found Kate to be motivating, open, knowledgable and FUN to work with. We had Kate’s full attention on every session, she pushed us and made us work HARD! If you are contemplating signing up with a Personal Trainer, consider training with Kate.

Before I signed up with Kate I had been going to the gym fairly regularly but I was losing no weight and had been kidding myself I was getting fit. I needed to take some drastic action and Kate was recommended by a friend so I decided to take the plunge and sign up. I am so glad I did. Every workout, Kate’s enthusiasm and energy is contagious. I actually look forward to my early starts before work now (a far cry from 6 weeks ago when I struggled to get to work in time never mind work out beforehand!). Kate is very organised and driven which I love and she takes a personal interest in your goals. She is very interested in your diet as well as your exercise regime and understands the challenges of juggling having a career and young children and works with you to get the right balance that is achievable for you. Kate works you hard every session but you feel great when you are finished and a lot more alert at work during the day. After training twice a week for 6 weeks with Kate I am definitely seeing the benefits of having Kate as my Personal Trainer and would happily recommend her to others.

Kate has been really great to work with, I’ve learnt so much more about exercise and the types of things that I should be doing to improve my strength and help me to tone up, not just the cross training and using the treadmill which I used to just do! I feel really comfortable working with Kate and even though she works me really hard, I feel like I always have a good time working out with her as well! Huge thumbs up!
- Georgia Whelan
“I have had many trainers before but have to say that Kate has been by far the BEST! She has given me the best workouts to do every day and trains me so hard every week. Kate motivates me and makes me want to come and train at least once a day. Kate has taught me correctly how to use the machines and do the exercises. Her positive and outgoing attitude really makes the training a lot of fun. I’m soooo happy she’s my trainer, my training would not be the same without her! I would recommend Kate to anyone that is interested in some hardcore training, trust me you definitely won’t get bored!.”

“I completed two rounds of Fighter Girls with Kate in 2011 which I toughly enjoyed. I was looking to build on the fitness I had built during my Fighter Girls sessions and want to be in great shape for my up coming Christmas holidays in Brazil. I started a 12 week Personal Training course with Kate in late September 2011. I had never used a PT before and was unsure of what to expect but Kate was great. She pushed me physically, gave me advice on diet and went the extra mile to help me achieve my goals but above all, she was fun to work with. Kate is a bubbly PT who is good to have a laugh with but her main focus is definitely your goals and ensuring you achieving them. I would recommend her as your PT.”
- Helen Williams
“Kate Bridgeman is one awesome trainer. She brings such variations to training which is refreshing. She encourages and works without relent on your limitations, sticks with you when you feel you have nothing left in you. She does not give up on you and will not let you give up on yourself! I always come away feeling worked out, and worked up! One kick butt trainer if you are serious about your health and fitness. She is also such a cool person and easy to workout with. She is fun and yes … even though training can seem hard, Kate brings a good rapport with her, she is intriguing and I always look forward to my sessions with her. She inspires me with her own achievements and what more could you ask of a personal trainer than one who walks the walk and can literally talk the talk and deliver the results, whatever your goal is. Kate, you are indeed the BEST TRAINER! You are just so fun to workout with!
