I have nothing against commercial gyms but I much prefer to be in an outdoor environment. Training at homes, local parks and workplaces away from a gym set-up is what I love most about my job.

About you:

Hi I’m Russell the head trainer at MaxNRG Personal Training. I have always had an active life, with involvement in numerous sports and activities starting at a very young age. I graduated with a Bachelor of Exercise Science and Human Movement at Victoria University in 2008 and am extremely passionate about being the best personal trainer I can be. I place a strong emphasis on proper technique and education to not only prevent injury but to also maximise results for each and every client. I constantly aim at improving my education covering all aspects of human performance and have a genuine thirst for knowledge. I believe every session should be challenging and enjoyable whilst also still focusing on ultimately reaching the clients long term goals. I apply these principles to my sessions, designing programs and creating unique challenges to push clients to achieve their personal best.

I have been training with Russell Laurie of MaxNRG for the past six years. My daughter originally introduced me to him and indeed she also still trains with Russell and I have not looked back.

Russell is always very encouraging and has a vast knowledge of his profession.

I would recommend MaxNRG and Russell in a heartbeat.

Simply, with their help I achieved my goal of putting on weight, one which I have struggled with for years. With their help I have gained 13kg+ and my strength has more than doubled. They really helped me by giving me the tools to grow, such as diet and training regimes

MaxNRG Personal Training is really great. I was skinny but too unmotivated and shy to go to the gym. I had Russell Laurie as my personal trainer and now I noticed a positive change in my appearance. I am happy and now more confident with myself. I definitely recommend Russell and MaxNRG to anyone looking for great quality personal training.

I’ve lost over 19kg now and am so close to cracking 20kg!!! I am so happy to go out shopping now and have loved buying a whole new wardrobe. Russ is such a great personal trainer, who knows how to get the best out of me. I honestly couldn’t be happier with my achievements so far.
