Our Team

If you are aged between 35 and 70 years old and have been searching for answers to health and/or injury related problems, and tired of being in pain and desperately need the advice and support from experts who understand your needs in order to live life to the fullest. No Regrets Personal Training have trained over 1500 Melbourne men and women exactly like this, for over 10 years now, and have been voted by their clients as the Most “Complete” Health Training Program they have ever tried before! We are currently featured in National publications such as Women’s Health & Fitness Magazine and have contributed to many other publications such as “The Age” newspaper and popular Online subscriptions such as Inshape News. We are known mostly for providing specific to you assessments and programs that address the underlying cause of your health problems. Almost 50% of our client base is made up mostly of small business owners and people in busy occupations who are very time poor, have a family and are under high level of stress. As a result their health has suffered recently and they recognize they need to look after themselves with a method that will fit their busy lifestyle and achieve results. Unlike 24 hour gyms, most traditional personal training or group training services, that give you a template program using a "Cookie Cutter" approach that use body building principles or "go hard go home" style of training that firstly do not relate to your goals or needs, and secondly will inevitably ruin the person with too much stress already. We at No Regrets Personal Training understand our clients needs and factors as we focus on assessing your weaknesses across all areas of health, physical, nutritional, stress, sleep and lifestyle goals. From this we can find the fastest and most effective method for improving health so you can achieve your true potential.

Hi! My name is Nick Jack and this is my wife Melissa Jack. We are the founders and owners of No Regrets Personal Training. 

 

This is our team

 

Our mission at No Regrets is to help clients excel and achieve the impossible. We are endless in our pursuit for a result with our clients by continually searching for new training methods and knowledge to enhance our service and be known  as the “best place to train in Melbourne”. We believe there are no limits, there is always another level to get to and in getting there, there should be no regrets. We encourage this philosophy with our clients as much as ourselves. At No Regrets we have experience from working with children right through to the elderly, and everybody in between. As a team we set high standards in our ability to communicate and motivate exceptionally well, and have the skills and the knowledge to help anyone achieve their personal goals.

We pride ourselves by helping others take control of their lives both mentally and physically, and have helped many people get up and running on the road to personal fitness. Who knows what you'll be able to achieve with a kick-start in the right direction!

We have won several National awards as a Fitness Business, see pictures below.

2011 we were awarded Fitness Business Rookie of the year with Fit For Profit Fitness Business Marketing.

2012 & 2013 we were Runner up Fitness Business of the Year with NPE Fitness Business Marketing.

We have also regularly been acknowledged in the local newspaper for contributions to the community. February 2014 we raised over $6000 for Wheelchairs For Kids Charity by creating a Push Up Challenge (see http://pushupchallenge.com.au/). We were able to raise enough money to purchase 40 wheelchairs for kids in Third World countries!

And in 2012-2013 we raised over $5000 for Peter Mac Cancer Centre http://www.petermac.org/

 

 

Nick is also a monthly contributor to Women’s Health & Fitness Magazine. We are also proud to be an official provider of the Lift for Life® program. Lift for Life® is a unique strength training program, developed by researchers at Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute. The program was designed specifically for people with type 2 diabetes or those at risk of developing it. The program is also ideal for people with, or at risk of a range of chronic diseases such as heart disease and osteoporosis as well as those who have previously been sedentary or who are new to resistance training.

Designed to complement our existing Stronger for Longer older adults group class, this government funded initiative allows us to make exercise more accessible to the wider community, including those experiencing disadvantage, helping to improve quality of life.

To keep up with the demand we have recruited a team of passionate, highly experienced and educated guys and girls that share our vision for first class, fun fitness that guarantees results. No Regrets has grown recently to 5 personal trainers catering to over 150 individuals every week! We would love to talk to you about becoming one of our satisfied clients.

    Ben Higgs

    Watch the interview with Ben by clicking the image below. This is Ben like you have never seen him before sharing quite an inspirational story of how he got himself into the Health & Fitness game. We also see Ben completing his favourite exercise in the gym at the end of the video.

    Ben as well as being a Personal Trainer is also Owner and Head Chef at Wild Oak Restaurant in Olinda. Melissa first met Ben many years ago completing several of his very popular cooking courses. We were both regular diners at his restaurant too and over time forged a good friendship. Our business relationship with Ben has been strong for several years and in our monthly print newsletter we provide to all of our clients we award a Client Of The Month who for their efforts wins a $50 voucher to go to Wild Oak! In 2013 Ben decided to get his qualifications for Personal Training and completed his log book hours at our gym.
    Ben was a hit straight away, a great sense of humour and knows how to make exercise fun. But most importantly he really understands the importance of looking after yourself and what can happen when things get out of hand. Make sure you watch his interview for you to understand what I mean.
    Ben had worked hard to become a successful chef and Business person, having owned and run many restaurants, as well as his renowned cooking school and a consultancy Business across several continents. Ben decided there was more to life than just financial gain.
    Tipping the scales at just over 130kg Ben decided in 2012 to invest in his well being and change his lifestyle with dramatic results. This led to Ben wanting to share some of this passion and thus becoming a trainer. To date Ben is now around 90kg!
    We are very excited to have Ben on board and are planning to incorporate some exciting new classes and programs using his skills and experience as a Chef. Our cooking workshop earlier this year was a massive hit, and if you thought that was good wait until you see what we have coming.........
