“Hi, my name is Vic! 

My humble Eastern European roots predisposed me to gymnastics, which I started at the age of 5. I fell in love with this sport. The balance, the strength, the somersaults; it had me enthralled. My form was strict but never perfect, and for this I was reprimanded. It was this that eventually lead me to seek alternatives. I wanted to move fast and to learn quickly, I wanted the adrenaline that I had become so addicted to. They say you need to learn the rules to break them; and having learned them I left behind all the ostentatious baggage, keeping only the most essential principles.

In the years that followed I had diversified my interests and had discovered other disciplines that I took up parallel to gymnastics. These included street workout/calisthenics, tricking, breakdance and yoga. In these new found interests I was no longer restricted by the strict code of gymnastics, and could explore movement with new-found liberty.

These new commitments helped me develop a strong intuition for movement, where through experimentation, I began to invent my own movement patterns and skills. To me, this became the most rewarding part of streetworkout/ calisthenics, where through creativity, I could come up with patterns of movement that perhaps, no one else in the world had yet discovered!”

I have had a great experience with PT Vic so far. He's a friendly, knowledgeable guy and a supportive trainer. The sessions are challenging but fun.

A tailored workout for what you need. Vic is very encouraging and knowledgeable, and can provide a great program of exercises and stretches for you. The use of bodyweight exercises activates a lot of different muscles, and I'm finding it a refreshing change from doing weights in the gym.

Really enjoyed my workout experience with Street Workout St Kilda! Vic tailored the workout to suit my fitness goals. I was completely new to Calisthenics and a bit nervous at first but was amazed at how much I achieved in just 3 sessions! I went from not being able to do any form of handstands to being able to hold a handstand by myself! Sessions were challenging but were a great full body workout and Vic makes sure that your technique is correct which is really important. Also enjoyed training outdoors at M.O Moran Reserve right on the beach. Would recommend Vic & Street Workout St Kilda to anyone looking for a focused, but fun trainer.

I had an awesome experience with Street workout St Kilda! I learnt lots of new skills for example how to hold a handstand for 5 seconds rather than walking around. I really enjoyed learning these skills outdoors, it really made my day! Vic is an awesome guy to learn from as he is extremely supportive and really focuses on giving the best service. I highly recommend to anyone who wants to try something different from lifting heavy weights but still wanting to build core strength and learn awesome skills.

This guy used to train at the same gym with me, so I decided to give him a shot. He used to be so passionate about fitness and now all I can say is that he became an expert.

Our Philosophy

Build your castle on the ruins of your obstacles.

Through our experience, empathy and knowledge; we will guide you to success. We do what we preach. We know that what we teach works because we do it ourselves, and have achieved enormous success. Our Melbourne-based personal trainers exert an aura of authority that stems from many years of experience in various disciplines of movement. In addition to this intuitive mastery of movement, each personal trainer possesses a relevant degree in science and nationally recognised fitness qualifications. 

In training there are many factors that constitute success. Everyone is different. Therefore it’s essential to treat every case individually. In saying this, it is important to realise that there is a common lowest denominator. That is to say, it is essential that a strong foundation be laid out, especially when it comes to Street Workout.

Our philosophy surrounding success is four-fold: training, diet, sleep and state-of-mind. It is important to realise that these things are interconnected. It is not only the effort put into each individual determinant, but also the balance of them that holds significance for achieving results.

Discover Calisthenics Training

An artform and an expression of self through movement – not your typical bodyweight training. 

Calisthenics, also known as Street Workout, is bodyweight training discipline that combines gymnastics, yoga, breakdance with its own unique flavour.

Calisthenics is mostly concerned with floor, high bar and parallel bar exercises and can roughly be divided into fundamentals, statics and freestyle.

FAQs

Why Are We The Best Personal Trainers in Melbourne?

If you search ‘personal trainer near me’ or ‘personal trainer in melbourne’ in Google, you’ll be hit with hundreds of results – most of which are from large commercialised gyms trying to snap you up. Most of the personal trainers these gyms list are novices, some of them not even qualified yet. They may seem cheap, but that’s for a reason. Add the gym membership to the mix and you’re paying top dollar for poor quality training, where you could be receiving exceptional support for the same amount.

Street Workout St Kilda hires only the best of the best. Our personal trainers are all university qualified, with knowledge and experience to get you the results you need. We have no membership fee, and have the capacity to travel to you with our own equipment. We win on price, quality of trainers, convenience, and most importantly, results. 

Want To Try Calisthenics Training But Not Quite Ready?

Does calisthenics seem intangible to you? Do you see all the crazy stuff calisthenics practitioners do, and you look out in awe thinking, “That could never be me?” The reality is, calisthenics, like any discipline, takes time to perfect. Despite what you may think, it’s super practical precisely because it is so adaptable – everything can be scaled down to suit your needs.

During the first session we can help determine whether you’re ready or not. In the case that you’re not we will provide training that will help develop the necessary components to get you there – whether that means weight loss or fundamental strength training.

As a way to get into shape as quickly as possible we highly recommend our Cardiovascular Training. Cardiovascular training (cardio) is a great way to smash out some exercise and is particularly accommodating to beginners. You will definitely break a sweat, but you’ll love yourself for it.

High intensity interval training (HIIT), also known as Tabata, is the current standard for cardiovascular training and is both the most efficient, and most effective cardiovascular regiment out there. Forget running for an entire hour to lose the caloric equivalent of a candy bar. It’s boring, ineffective and can damage yours knees in the long run.

The idea behind HIIT is that you do exercise for short bursts of high intensity (ideally anaerobically i.e. 85-100% of your heart rate max). There are many different exercises that can go into HIIT, but they are generally selected for their capacity to keep heart rate up. This means that HIIT style exercises can be different for different people based on individual fitness levels.

Why Hire Our Melbourne-based Personal Trainers?

Technical knowledge is king

Many among us are simply biomechanically illiterate. Even simple movements can be surprisingly technical – it’s important to have a second pair of eyes and a trainer’s expert opinion.

Motivation can run dry

A trainer is there to motivate you on your best days and your worst. They are there to back you and help you achieve your goals. Having a second person in your fitness journey can be incredibly rewarding – and can really push you over the line.

Injuries are virtually nullified by good trainers

Trainers are always watching, vigilant to prevent injury. Advanced exercises can be dangerous under certain circumstances and spotting can help prevent serious injury.

Enjoyment is what ultimately decides your lifestyle

Training can be fun. In fact, training should be fun. If it’s not fun, then you’re doing something very wrong. It’s unsurprising that many people that train alone are dissatisfied with their training. Often the grind is simply to push that extra plate or to run that extra mile – for many people these goals are not exactly exciting. Trainers can help make training fun and give diversity to your routine.

Can I Train Online?

Online coaching offers many of the perks of face to face personal training, but you don’t have to be in Melbourne to take advantage of our amazing personal trainers. You have access to our knowledge at your fingertips. This is a fantastic opportunity to grow your skills from anywhere around the world. Build your foundation and and get into the best shape of your life with our expert advise on technique, strength and conditioning, nutrition and more! 

Let’s train through video call! You’ll receive all of the guidance you would receive in person via a 1 hour video call from the comfort of your home, gym or calisthenics park. We will guide your workout in real time. Get personalised tips for technique, as we guide you on the best and safest ways to exercise.

Feel free to enquire below, no matter where you are in the world! We speak fluent English and Russian!
