William D'Ornay - Owner - Head Personal Trainer
After overcoming a serious shoulder injury from a motorbike accident, I turned to a more fitness-focused lifestyle to help me gain my strength back. As I continued to work out more, I noticed the results I earned, and loved that healthier feeling both physically and mentally. I decided I wanted to help people who had those similar goals. Through personal training, I have found ways to connect with people who face various challenges, and I enjoy working with them and pushing them to overcome their personal challenges. LTYB Point Cook is where I started my journey to achieve a healthier lifestyle, and I’m grateful I get to own and work in a new LTYB studio in Geelong, so I can continue to reach other people who are seeking to accomplish fitness-related goals.
Amanda Mcfarland - Personal Trainer
As an avid ultra trail runner, kettlebell lover, cyclist, triathlete and nutritionist, I believe in living life to the fullest and I am addicted to the endorphins that exercise gives me. A lover of nature and simple holistic living, I am dedicated to helping my clients achieve their goals. Whether you want to lose weight, get stronger, get fit or train for your first fun run or whatever your goal may be, I promise to help you every step of the way. I believe that nutrition, consistency, routine, commitment and pushing ourselves outside of our comfort zone are keys to being successful. Come along and lets have fun in our health journey together.
Brenton Rees - Personal Trainer

With 5 years of Exercise Science and Industry experience, Brenton is excited to join the LTYB Geelong team.
Amanda Bancalari - Member Experience and Service
I’ve always been a huge advocate of fitness. Between school and work, I turned to spin and boxing to relieve stress. I’m originally from New York, so I’m used to stress overload, and I really enjoy getting my body moving in order to shake off any negative emotions. Listen to Your Body is a great environment to work out in because we are a strong community, and we all motivate each other. While I’m behind the desk helping out members, I’ll be kicking butt in many sessions too! I plan to get my Cert III, so we can offer boxing classes for LTYB clients!
Annaleise Szocs - Yoga Instructor
I discovered Yoga and Meditation as a stressed-out teenager and have been enjoying the physical and mental benefits for over 20 years. Yoga has been a major factor in recovering from several knee and shoulder injuries and surgeries, helped me prepare for pregnancy and childbirth, and navigate grief and loss. I completed my Level 1 Yoga Teacher Training with Byron Yoga Centre in 2014 and have taught over 1000 hours of Yoga classes. I'm also a qualified Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga Teacher, Children's Yoga Teacher and Personal Trainer. You don't need to be flexible, have a perfect body or be young and fit to benefit from Yoga. I specialise in teaching absolute beginners and people with injuries. Everyone is welcome in my classes - I look forward to seeing you on the mat!
