About Trizone Fitness

Michael Kessissoglou – the owner of Trizone Fitness has dedicated the past 24 years to the fitness industry and seen many changes since he started out as a gym instructor at a city fitness centre back in 1992. Since then he has gone on to work in what was the largest fitness chain in WA at the time working his way up from a gym floor instructor to a personal trainer (PT), membership consultant and then going out on his own in 1996 to running his own PT business from a fitness club in Claremont. Then is 1999, Michael and his partner Claire (now wife – and 2 amazing kids later) took the plunge and opened the largest club in the Western suburbs which is still operation today….and thriving. Since then he has started another 4 clubs each building from his experience and knowledge from the past…….but he wasn’t satisfied.

Trizone Fitness came about based on what he discovered along the way: the need to overhaul the ‘traditional’ (and possibly outdated?) fitness models and focus on an engaging, results-driven approach.

Trizone Fitness is specifically designed to meet the current fitness demands and trends and thus become more relevant in the public’s mind. It plans to respond to the changing lifestyles and individual needs, to take group training to the next level: building a sense of community and overall wellbeing. This is the model for today and the future.

Michael became increasingly frustrated that the traditional ‘big box’ gyms were not modelled on customer needs, where the lack of support and service added to the ever-increasing churn of members who expected results but were left empty-handed and dissatisfied.

Having been guilty of being a part of and owning these types of clubs, it came to a point where he grew tired of the ‘one model fits all’ approach and he was no longer satisfied with offering this anymore; where the big gym wants your long-term membership without providing the value you deserve. There had to be a better way! If Michael was going to improve the lifestyle and wellbeing of the community he had to get out of this outdated fitness model that he was using at his current club….and that’s exactly what he did…..and Trizone Fitness was born!

April Hawser – Fitness Manager & Admin Team Leader

Describe yourself in three words:   Competitive, personable, & dedicated

How did you get started in the fitness industry?

Growing up in the country I was a very active kid around the farm, I never needed to think about exercise as something to schedule, it just happened throughout the day. However, as I grew up and shifted away, began studying more, and working in offices rather than outside, I needed to find a new way to stay active, so I joined a gym.  From that moment on I was completely hooked, so for me it was a natural transition into training others after spending so many hours training myself. I’m competitive by nature and I always try to find ways to keep myself challenged. I could not see myself sitting behind a desk or surrounded by four walls, so the best way to continue with the energy and lifestyle I loved was to follow a career in the fitness industry.

What is your training philosophy?

I believe that through consistent, strategic effort the only limitation of your potential is time.  Every aspect of your training; no matter how small, should be carefully planned, and executed with purpose.

Why is this effective?

When we develop training programs based upon the current science, we can maximise your training capacity, avoid injury, and achieve continual personal or competitive success.

Describe yourself in three words:  Competitive, Hardworking and Passionate

How did you get started in the fitness industry?
From a very young age my parents got me into Karate and Athletics. When I was in primary school I went on to represent my country in the Junior Karate Olympics in Nepal. I also continued to excel in Athletics and in high school I was made athletics team captain.

After having done competitive sports 10 years of my life it was natural transition for me to turn my passion into a career. I could not see myself trying to sit behind a desk or doing anything else apart from what I loved the most. So i continued to channel my energy by completing my Bachelor of Science (Majoring in Exercise and Sports) at ECU and becoming a Personal Trainer.

What is your training philosophy?
Train Hard and Persistently!

Why is this effective?
This is effective because nothing in life comes easy. Hard work and sacrifice always pays off if you are persistent!

Sarah Pereira – Personal Trainer

3 words to describe me: Outgoing, passionate & persistent.

How I got started in the industry:
From a very young age I participated & excelled in a range of different sports, excelling particularly in soccer and was selected to represent WA. After school I went on to complete my Bachelor in Exercise & Sport Science which further developed my passion for health and fitness. I then decided to become a Personal Trainer so I could pass on my extensive knowledge & inspire others to lead a healthy lifestyle. 

Training Philosophy:
My training philosophy is “there isn’t just one way to train”. Each individual has different goals and abilities and I will train each individual accordingly. However, I find that combining weight training, functional training & cardio-respiratory training together yields great results. I specialize in helping people lose weight, build muscle, tone up and increasing one’s overall fitness. I also advise on Bikini Competition preparation as I compete & have placed in both IFBB & INBA Bikini competitions.
