Listen To Your Body
Ready to shed kilo's, tone up, and feel better about yourself again?
Restrictions have eased as of Saturday 18th Sept 2021, meaning our experienced PT team are back in action, ready to personally guide you on the way back to feeling healthy again.
Yes, we are back in business!
And so excited to be be running 2 on 1 outdoor PT sessions.
How do the 2 on 1 PT sessions work?
- Each session will run for 40 minutes
- Undercover. We have hired commercial grade marquees.......so you can train rail, hail or splendid spring sunshine
- Over 50 pieces of equipment. We have moved our ENTIRE range of studio equipment outdoors, so you will have the FULL spectrum of equipment to work with.
Air bikes, rowers, ski erg, exercise bikes, barbells, dumbbells, bench press, squat rack, swiss balls, bosu, battle ropes. You name it….we are using it every day.
So don’t stress that you will get bored from 40 minutes of bodyweight exercises. Variety is the spice of life, and we have set everything up as a fully equipped gym.
- Sessions will have either a cardio/core focus OR strength/resistance/core focus. You let us know what you are keen to target!
- WHERE? All sessions will run in the secure LTYB outdoor carpark at 5 Lloyd Street Strathmore. We will have 4 separate “pods” able to train 2 people at a time, meaning up to 8 spots available to book in the peak time slots
- COST? $55 gets you up to 4 PT sessions per week. Or you can purchase 1 off sessions for $30.
To enquire about 2 on 1 PT, email firstname.lastname@example.org right now
Or you can dive right in and download the "Listen To Your Body Strathmore" app.
Create you account, select the 2 on 1 membership and start booking!
For those new to Listen To Your Body Strathmore, read on for some info on our training philosophy. We achieve results by doing things a little differently…..and even though we are not indoors for now…..the same individualised & personal touch will apply to each and every 2 on 1 outdoor PT session.
What's our secret to success?
The only way to get you the health & fitness results you are after – is to sit down & take the time to find out exactly what YOU want to achieve. For many coming out of lockdown, weight loss is going to be the primary goal. For others it may be toning up or improving muscle strength. For many, there will be a goal to switch on core muscles again.
For older clients, perhaps it's lowering your cholesterol or improving bone density.
And for nearly all of us, we just want to feel connected again. So whilst lockdown likely remains until late October in Melbourne, the 2 on 1 sessions will create a positive mental release from the current daily grind.
How can you get started with LTYB?
Before we start training you, we will sit down & take the time to find out exactly what you are looking to achieve, and then put a plan in place to achieve those goals. We can have this conversation either on the phone, via zoom, or meet you outdoors at the PT training space to show you around. Whichever is most comfortable for you.
Once the training starts, we need to make the sessions fun & enjoyable, so you look forward to every session, which ensures exercise becomes part of your weekly routine. This has been the key ingredient to our members long term success……they love coming to a fun and non-intimidating environment. Regardless of your age and fitness level, we are always progressing you relative to your ability.
Lastly, we need to make sure we can fit into your busy schedule. In “normal” operations we offer over 70 sessions per week, 7 days a week, and by sparing no expense with our 4 x commercial grade marquee hire.......which will allow us to train undercover in ANY conditions.......we are going to be able offer the same number of 2-on-1 PT sessions, 7 days a week. Yes even Sundays we will be working for you!
How do you book in?
All sessions are booked via an app, and to give you maximum flexibility, you are free to book in up to 5 minutes before start time.
What if I have a heap of injury limitations, or haven’t stepped foot in a gym for years?
We know each member has their our own specific body niggles and limitations, so as your trainer – we take the time to find out exactly where your body is at - so that the exercises we prescribe
1) Do not injure you
2) Are matched to your unique goals
We love a challenge, and also enjoy liasing with your medical professional (physio, osteo etc) to work on a rehab program where required. If you are returning to exercise post-surgery, we can liase with your surgeon and rehab specialist.
We specialise in
*Reducing Body Fat
*Improving cardiovascular endurance
*Increasing Bone Density (especially important for our members over 50)
How does an LTYB session work?
Firstly, our sessions are NOT circuit style where the entire class rotates through the same set of exercises.
The Personal Trainer controls all 40 minutes of the session, and will select exercises SPECIFIC for your needs and goals. Each exercise prescribed is purely for you, so you can train as fast or slow as you like.
There may be others in the same session as you, but they will be giving a completely different set of exercises, based on their goals and fitness level
The other key distinction with all our sessions, whether outdoors or when we return to "normal" indoors, is that all exercises are delivered verbally by the PT, not off a TV screen, to give you maximum personalisation.
What if I haven’t done much exercise for a while and are looking to ease back into training?
Firstly….you won’t be alone! There’s about 5 million other Victorians right now who’ve done little else the last few months aside from walk/run the footpath and binge in Netflix.
If this is you, our PT team will program at a low intensity from your very first session, then slowly rebuild your confidence and fitness base.
What if I am feeling good and looking to take my results to the next level?
Some have remained super motivated through lockdown, and been tearing up the running track and push ups & squat jumps in the back yard. But what you really crave now is some proper gym equipment.....
You’ve come to the right place as well. If this is you, we will dial up the intensity right away and turn you into a fitness machine.
What if I have never been to a gym, or it's been that long I can't even remember when?
For beginners – LTYB is a great place to start. Many of our members are “first time in a gym” – and the fear of joining a gym can be “I have no idea what to do” or “am I doing this exercise right” or "I am so unfit and everyone will be looking at me".
Firstly....most will be just as unfit as you right now, and infinitely more worried about themselves than you. Second, once you have done a few sessions, you'll quickly realise everyone else is in a similar boat as you, just trying to improve themselves to be healthier for daily life.
As for the "am I doing this exercise right concern"......We love to teach…...and take great enjoyment in showing newbies how to use gym equipment and get the technique just right.
We also take pride in ensuring a comfortable, non-intimidating environment. Part of this philosophy includes no mirrors. This isn’t hard to achieve outdoors haha!….but when you do join us indoors later in 2021…we can assure you....there are no mirrors!
And our sessions certainly aren't a fashion contest. It's almost a weekly occurrence for our 5.30am members (who often get dressed in the dark to avoid disturbing the rest of the house) to turn up in an odd sock or inside out shirt. It's all part of the fun, and you'll feel amongst friends very quickly.
We are big on guiding your nutrition & healthy eating, but are not into “fad diets”, rapid weight loss, or unsustainable short term results. We very much have a 52 week a year philosophy, so once we help you lose the weight, we want to make sure the weight stays off.....FOR GOOD! Some of our members have been with us for over 10 years. At first we focus on the shifting the weight, then it's a matter of pivoting the programming and nutrition....to keep that weight off.
Other Key Benefits of LTYB Sessions
We've always known the benefits of our sessions have been not just physical, but mental as well.
The rolling lockdowns in 2020-2021 have re-enforced just how crucial organised exercise in a supportive environment is on everyone's mental wellbeing. We all need an escape from the daily grind of work, study, home schooling, uncertainty, social media.......so by coming along to our sessions to charge your batteries and have a laugh with our trainers for 40 minutes while you exercise will produced many smiles again.
We know exercise isn't everyone's favourite thing to do BUT by building a fun atmosphere, our sessions become an enjoyable part of our members day.
Here is what Louise said…“𝑻𝒉𝒆 𝒃𝒆𝒔𝒕 𝒑𝒍𝒂𝒄𝒆 𝒕𝒐 𝒈𝒐 𝒊𝒇 𝒚𝒐𝒖 𝒂𝒓𝒆 𝒊𝒏𝒕𝒆𝒓𝒆𝒔𝒕𝒆𝒅 𝒊𝒏 𝒃𝒆𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒔𝒖𝒑𝒑𝒐𝒓𝒕𝒆𝒅 𝒕𝒐 𝒂𝒄𝒉𝒊𝒆𝒗𝒆 𝒚𝒐𝒖𝒓 𝒉𝒆𝒂𝒍𝒕𝒉 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒇𝒊𝒕𝒏𝒆𝒔𝒔 𝒈𝒐𝒂𝒍𝒔, 𝒏𝒐 𝒎𝒂𝒕𝒕𝒆𝒓 𝒘𝒉𝒂𝒕 𝒍𝒆𝒗𝒆𝒍 𝒚𝒐𝒖 𝒂𝒓𝒆 𝒔𝒕𝒂𝒓𝒕𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒇𝒓𝒐𝒎, 𝒄𝒐𝒖𝒄𝒉 𝒑𝒐𝒕𝒂𝒕𝒐 𝒕𝒐 𝒂𝒕𝒉𝒍𝒆𝒕𝒆."
Our youngest member is 16, and our oldest is 85 – so we’re confident you’ll fit right in. If you are 86…...don't stress. We'll take your call too :)

Andrew Frazer - Owner & Personal Trainer
It has been a unique journey to the PT world for our owner Andrew. Starting life out of university as a financial adviser in the early 2000s, Andrew then moved overseas and travelled the globe for many years running tours for Contiki. In 2012 he returned to Australia, and planned to work as a Personal Trainer for only one year at Listen To Your Body before getting back to the “real world” of finance and an office job.
Discovering the daily joy of helping people get their health, fitness, positive mindset and self-esteem in order - Andrew stayed a further 5 years, before eventually buying the Strathmore studio in 2017 from the founder LTYB Ben Fletcher. The Strathmore PT team has expanded significantly in the last 3 years, and the studio was recently renovated & refurbished.
Andrew is now happily married to wife Elle, and have a young toddler Angus.
Chris Muratore - Head Personal Trainer
Chris Muratore is LTYB Strathmore's Personal Training Manager who has been with us for 9 years.
Chris lives and breathes a healthy lifestyle and when not on the PT floor full time, is training himself….or watching his other passions…wrestling & the bombers!
Chris has an inate ability to connect with every member from the second they walk in the door - making them feel welcome and at ease. He is a natural leader - who captained his local football side Parkside, before taking over as coach. He is also director of coaching at Strathmore Cricket Club.
Chris is married to his lovely wife Dani who trains frequently at the studio - and they have two beautiful daughters Leila & Ruby
Elle Frazer - Owner & Personal Trainer
Elle is co-owner of LTYB Strathmore with her husband Andrew. Her primary role is teaching secondary school science, but in her spare times runs much of the social media at LTYB and drops in to take the occasional PT class. And in June 2019 welcomed their son Angus into the world.
Elle has an amazing passion for fitness, and completed her Personal Training qualifications back in 2012. She loves her netball almost as much as her beloved Kangaroos!
Cris Abate - Studio Manager & Personal Trainer
Cris is possibly the best LTYB success story in our 19 year history.
Joining as a client in 2007, Cris had been heavily overweight her entire life – and after trying every diet and training program under the sun – finally found success with LTYB – losing over 40kg……and keeping it off ever since.
Yes losing weight is difficult, but the eternal battle to keep it off once lost is the hardest part – and Cris is devoted to mentoring LTYB members in winning the battle she has now won for over a decade.
With the new positive mindset, and thirst for life that came from gradually losing the 40kg over 2 years – Cris was inspired to help others who had been in her position to improve their health & mental wellbeing – so went back to school to earn her PT qualification, and started work for LTYB as a trainer.
In 2013 she set off on a lifelong dream to travel around Australia for 2 years in a caravan with her wonderful husband Kev, before finding her way back to LTYB Strathmore.
Cris is an avid bombers fan, and the “mother hen” of the studio – always making sure the staff and members are taken care of – and a constant source of bright & fun loving energy for the studio.
Rochelle Te Hiko - Personal Trainer
Rochelle is a motivated personal trainer wanting to motivate LTYB members to increase their fitness levels and maintain their active lifestyle through exercise and nutrition. She enjoys sharing her passion of having a positive mindset towards exercise as her journey into the world of fitness has been rewarding. Weighing in at 110kg in her late teens, she decided to apply exercise and healthy eating to her day which resulted in losing 45kg over a course of time.
Rochelle implemented important lifestyle changes to help find a balance at home and work, through movement and food. Her understanding of what the body needs to stay active and healthy is her drive which results in motivating others to do the same. During her time outside of the studio, she enjoys spending time with family, the sauna, swimming, outdoor activities, rest and recovery.
Tom Markey - Personal Trainer
Tom started his fitness journey at LTYB Strathmore over 5 years ago, and quickly developed an appreciation for training at an elite level. His passion for health and fitness was evident, and wanting to help others reach their goals and become the best person they can be physically and mentally, he gained his PT qualification and joined the Strathmore PT team in September 2020.
Outside of LTYB, he loves to keep active, and plays football alongside head trainer Chris at Parkside FC. He has been playing since age 6, and is a passionate Western Bulldogs fan. Tom brings great energy to his classes, and is constantly researching new exercises & techniques to keep his sessions fun & engaging for all members.
