Liam Carrick-Ryan

Body Transformation Specialistliam-carrick-ryan

Personal Trainer
Director/Founder of Transform Fitness

 

Liam is the founder of Transform Fitness and is a highly regarded Health and Fitness Expert in the industry.

Liam’s own personal health and fitness journey began at the age of 20 where his Father (aged 47) was diagnosed with Bowel cancer and a few months later terminal Liver cancer.

At the time he was like many 20 year olds, health and fitness was just not on top of his priority list however that was all about to change. Where his dad was told to embrace what little time he had left to live, he knew personally that he still had an opportunity to turn his life around for the better.

From this experience Liam developed a passion to help educate others on how to improve the quality of their lives through optimum nutrition and scientific training methods, while still living a balanced lifestyle.

10 Years on Liam has helped changed thousands of people lives through the philosophy that health and fitness is not always about just having a slim waistline and a toned body. It is a way of life that promotes a healthy heart, strong emotional fitness, a balanced diet and muscle strength and endurance to deal with the pressure of everyday activities.

Scott Blackwood

Body Transformation Specialist
Personal Trainer
scott-blackwood

 

Scott has always had a strong relationship with health and fitness, as he has been involved in the sports industry throughout his whole life however his passion for health and fitness lies much deeper then just the training component alone.

Scott’s true passion is to help inspire and coach others to become the best possible versions of themselves through providing a supportive and motivating relationship with each and every client as well as implementing simplistic yet proven training systems that are specific to each client.

“Throughout my Coaching roles I have always believed that training should be made as simplistic as possible while still being specific to the individual goals. Goals, support, performance, recovery are key words that I believe are very important in any sort of training program. My philosophy towards every client is to see them continually grow and improve with a focus on solutions instead of problems”

After just one training session with Scott you will see the tremendous excitement and passion he has about helping people transform their lives however just like everyone else Scott too has had to overcome many obstacles throughout his life, which included battling with a lack of confidence and low self esteem caused by the criticism of others.

Growing up I dealt with a lot of criticism for being small and skinny. These criticisms stopped me from ever wanting to lift weights as I felt like I would be criticized further if my body didn’t show change. It took a lot of courage to start lifting weights but once I eventually started I probably had a ‘I’ll show you’ mentally which looking back I don’t believe was very healthy.

As I grew more physically I also began to grow more emotionally which resulted in my whole mindset changing. I came to the realization that I train because I love the way I feel when I do it as well as the feeling I get after it not because I am concerned with the opinions of others. Having this attitude changed my training routine from being a chore into a lifestyle choice and I now do it for me, and not anyone else!”

Qualifications:

  • Cert 3 & 4 in Health and Fitness

Chris Nolan

Functional Movement Specialist

Personal Trainer

After a seven year hiatus from Personal Training Chris has joined the team at Transform Fitness.

“I’ve always been involved with Fitness in some form or another. After a bad motorbike injury ended a promising basketball career in my early 20’s I spend 12 months on crutches undertaking an intensive rehabilitation program after multiple surgery’s. While my knee got stronger the rest of my body was struggling with all the postural issues caused by limping around for months”. It started a lifelong interest in rehab and postural training. “I see weights as tools – training should be like a good massage that pulls you back into alignment”.

In his early 30’s Chris opened his own Fitness Centre in rural Victoria and quickly gained a reputation for personalized training programs.  “People are all different – training will never work with a ‘one size fits all’ mentality, you need to tailor programs to suit people’s fitness but just as importantly their postural deviations otherwise you’re just making their strong muscles stronger and the weak muscles weaker.  It’s what attracted me to Transform Fitness – it’s very personalized and I believe that’s essential.”

Ten years after opening the Gym Chris had to make a choice – keep running the gym or develop his new extreme 4×4 tour business. “I’d done all I wanted with the Gym so I choose the 4x4s but it’s something I’ve always missed. The 4x4s are going strong as a weekend business so it’s time to get back to Personal Training.”

Qualifications:

  • Cert 3 & 4 in Health and Fitness (1998 & 2015)

  • Registered Member of Fitness Australia
