Success Stories and Testimonials
Carissa is a 28 year old student (and future Marketing and Human Resources management professional) who has struggled with anxiety, and weight issues for some time. She spoke to us recently about her fitness journey – this is her story……
So, I have been in and out of gyms probably since I was about 20 years old but struggled to feel comfortable in them. Last year, my friend Shauni said “stop wasting your money give my gym a try. You’ll have a training buddy and I’ll make sure you drag your ass into the gym”. She pretty much said you’re doing this . That was about a year ago and I haven’t looked back.
I’ve finished two challenges with Power Fitness Maddington. The first one (a 5 week challenge) was relaxed and I found it hard because I wasn’t mentally in the right place and I struggled to commit to it. But I just recently completed another 6 week challenge and even though I got sick half way through, I continued to train hard and kept on track with my nutrition. I loved the meal plan, it was easy to follow and there was lots of accountability behind it. This made me step up my game and I think I aced it. I lost 5.4 kilos over 6 weeks and heaps of centimetres which means fat loss, not muscle loss. Over the years, I’ve only ever seen the scales go up, not down so, I considering I didn’t think I was going to lose anything at all, I was really pleased.
Overall I have lost 8 kilos in total and am feeling pretty good. When you think about transformations mine definitely hasn’t necessarily been external, a lot of it has been in my mind and all of it is good. My anxiety is less, I’m sleeping better, studying has become more productive, and I have more confidence. My relationship with food has always been my biggest issue. I can get out there and exercise and work hard, but to be able to fuel myself properly is one of the biggest things that I’ve taken away from the challenges and the gym. So for me, it’s been an overall lifestyle change – both mental and physical.
To anyone thinking of joining Power fitness Maddington I would say do it. Other gyms I have tried felt intimidating and I was uncomfortable. Here, we are family. I have had so much help and have made so many friends that I can rock up on any given day and there’s always someone here that I can train with. I love the community – it’s supportive, open, and definitely non-threatening. To me, that’s pretty amazing – when you walk into a gym and you’re comfortable.
I’ve never done weights before, I’ve just always done classes, but coming into the gym has given me the support and the confidence to try free weights and strength training. So now, I’ve completed challenges and competed in a Power Lifting comp. I’m also on the PB (Personal Best) Records Board for deadlifting 135Kg at the recent Power Lifting competition.
All that’s been pretty impressive considering that I’d never picked up a weights bar before….and now, I can squat over 70 kilos, deadlift 135kg, and am improving all the time.

As a stay at home Mum with three small boys, I had put on lots of weight and wasn’t really living a very healthy life. I I felt like I had lost myself and I needed to change my lifestyle. I started working out with a PT at home (Reuben May) and he suggested that I join the gym to keep hitting my goals and meet some new like-minded people. So I joined Power Fitness in June and it was seriously the best decision I’ve ever made.
I have never been a member of a gym before and the first thing I noticed was the people! The people are fantastic! Coming in here is just amazing! I feel really comfortable, no one judges you and you feel very welcome. I thoroughly enjoy the atmosphere. I’ve made so many new friends and have now started my own PT course which I hope to finish later this year.
I‘ve lost nearly 30 kilos since I started my weight loss journey and several dress sizes. It’s been great!
Exercising here at 24/7 Power Fitness Maddington makes me feel fantastic and so healthy. I haven’t been this fit in a very long time, physically or mentally, and it feels awesome.
I first started at Power Fitness about 18 months ago with a friend. I was already playing netball regularly, but that was it for fitness for me. After years of putting myself last, I was feeling unfit, and unhealthy and needed a shake up.. I guess I was looking to find myself again, and also find people on the same journey who would push and motivate me.
It took me a while to hit the weight loss goals, but being around great support and people was what it was about for me at first.
My weight had fluctuated (mostly up) over the previous six years, but losing 5kg in 5 weeks during a Power Fitness Mini Challenge was a real motivator! Plus I found a great “tribe” of awesome ladies and made some great new friendships that I still have today.
Signing up for the last Power Fitness Transformation Challenge in January was definitely a turning point for me. I became really strong in mind, and body and am really happy with my results and how I look now. I feel and look the healthiest I have ever been, and plan to keep going to see where I end up.
And even though I have now hit my own personal weight loss goal, I realise that the scales was not really what it was about. Feeling good in my own skin is priceless – the “Wow you look great!” comments are a bonus.
Thank you Power Fitness, it’s been the best journey I have put myself on. If you are looking to change your health, these are the guys that have the best team to support you – no matter what stage you are at – to become a fitter, healthier you.
“Before I joined the gym, I wasn’t happy with myself. I had been talking to my doctor about feeling down, and he put me on antidepressants. I hated the way I felt on the medication so I started researching more natural approaches to mental health and that’s when I found Power Fitness in Maddington”.
I needed something to motivate me into losing weight and feeling great about myself. So I decided to jump onboard with a Challenge that they had at 24/7 Power Fitness Maddington, and it was the best decision I ever made.
Not only did I lose 5kg, but the support and encouragement I kept receiving from the staff and members has helped me lose more and keep it off!
I’ve now lost a total of 14kg and I feel amazing! Best decision was becoming a member at 24/7 Power Fitness in Maddington.
