Personal Training & Online Coaching

Personal Training & Online Coaching


Does this sound like you?

  • Despite your training efforts, you are struggling to notice any recent improvements in the activities you love. Not feeling stronger on the bike. No improvements in energy and stamina when hiking. Still sore and achy after a day of skiing or snowboarding.
  • You are struggling to see measurable progress in strength, fitness, or fat loss and feel about the same as you did few months ago.
  • You are not able to train effectively with that nagging injury.

Well hello there. Please to meet you. We should probably talk and get you back into doing all kinds of dope things (but not dope), while feeling awesome about yourself.

My typical in-person clients are active outdoor enthusiasts recovering from an injury. After the initial rehab with a clinician they come to see me to build functional movement and strength for their sport without re-aggravating the injury.

Your training in the gym should complement and support your outdoor activities

You can’t follow a random program praying to Zeus that planets will line up (or collide, for Crowbar fans) and sort life out eventually. You need a plan tailored to your body and goals. A plan that gives you the confidence to be your best self without worrying about aches, pains or the constant risk of re-injury.

Role playing Full Metal Jacket bootcamp scenes isn’t what my clients are into

If you are after a trainer who subs as a Satan’s right hand man, my coaching is not for you. This is training to get you stronger and better than your previous self. Not about some pseudo-military-bootcamp-I-am-Troy bullshit.

Getting sustainable results requires patience to ignore quick fixes

In my coaching we focus on efficient, reasonable and joint-friendly approach to strength and fitness, and learning sustainable and simple ways to improve your eating habits whenever necessary.

The good news? This leaves you with more time for the activities you love. And for a meaningful life in general. Which is always nicer than eating and training like a robot. But don’t get me wrong, this won’t be easy by any means. Results require you to show up and do the work. Both in and outside of the sessions.

When needed, I work together with physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors, other trainers and doctors to get you the best possible results.

“I was battling with an injury that prevented me from doing any running at all. I was able to get back to competing and completed a 100 kilometre race shortly after. The training was essential part for me being successful in my races.”
– Mat

“Thanks Joonas, you need to take a lot of the credit for keeping my body on the bike to get through the training… the work we did made a massive difference and my body has pulled up really well this week.”
– Kristeen, after 1400km Tour de Cure

Anywhere with an internet connection and (ideally) a gym access

The Reps and The Rest Online Coaching is for the active people who need to get stronger to feel more energetic and confident in the activities they love

And let’s be honest, everybody wants to look good Riverdancing semi-naked while staring into the blazing evening fire. That just so happens to be next to a crystal clear lake. In Switzerland.

This is a reasonable, principle-based, no-bullshit approach to health and fitness that fits into your busy life to deliver sustainable results

RATR Online Coaching is not a hardcore rules-based 12-week miracle approach to coconut oil lubricated six pack abs and juicy Kardashian butts. You are not expected to suck broccoli florets through a straw.

Principle-based coaching is exactly what makes this more challenging (and rewarding) than your average rules-based dictatorship coaching.

This is coaching for the thinking person. Sure, I’ll teach you the methods and the tools to be successful. But principle-based coaching requires painstakingly deep introspection on your part. And at times it’ll be uncomfortable.

Why online coaching might not be right for you

  • If you’re fresh out of clinical rehab and need in-person coaching (see above for personal training)
  • If you’ve never exercised before. (see above for personal training)
  • If you struggle communicating in writing.
  • If you are really into superheroes. Because they’re superlame. And Batman is not. Because he’s just a really fucked up non-super individual who does good. And wears black. Can we all agree that Batman is awesome?

Why online coaching could be your jam

  • You are busy and don’t want to be tied to a specific training time.
  • You don’t live in Sydney, or you travel heaps and need the convenience to train remotely.
  • You like to train on your own, but need a program and the accountability to keep you on track.

“I have started smaller hikes again and snowboarding without any pain in my knees. My overall fitness has improved, I lasted 6-8 days boarding on a recent 10 day snow trip to the US.”
– Rachel
