Fitness programs that work for everyone

I remember walking into a gym for the first time at the age of 15 without any clue of how to gain muscle mass. This for me was where it all began. It was the start of my obsession to achieve my personal goal of putting on mass and becoming a stronger, faster athlete.

After much studying and by applying the same techniques that I had learnt on myself, I formulated my own unique methods and began applying it to others. I am now the performance coach to Daniel Ricciardo, driver for the Renault Formula One team.


I’ve spent years working with people of all abilities ranging from corporates, weekend warriors and professional athletes. Using my coaching and performance training knowledge I’ve devised these programs specifically for you to incorporate into your lifestyle and improve your health and fitness.

Each program is designed to run across a 5 week period and based on working out 4 days of the week (F1 is 5 days a week), this way you can fit the workouts around your own schedule.

I trained with Michael for over a year, what started off as a weight loss goal before my wedding turned into a life style through his ability to make training enjoyable and motivate me to reach my goals.

Not only is he a great trainer and technically sound. He takes great focus on lifestyle not just at the gym but at home also by putting in a lot of time into meal plans and home exercises and strengthening. Michael is always motivated and positive in all aspects in life and a great bloke!

I’m feeling fitter, stronger and full of life! Not bad for a male in his late 20’s who 12 weeks ago was seriously out of shape and condition! Then I approached Michael Italiano – what a difference this guy has made! First class trainer, he listens, he motivates, he inspires! Everything you want in a Performance Coach.

Thanks for all the support and guidance over these weeks Mike! I am loving the new me, fitter and stronger and now able to play and enjoy life with my young family as never before! I’m looking forward to continuing my progress under Michael’s guidance and I recommend him to anybody looking for a First-Class Performance Coach!
