“All I knew for the first 30 years of my life was being trapped in an obese body, hating everything about myself and medicating myself with food and alcohol.
I was diagnosed with Type-2 Diabetes before something snapped.
I stopped waiting for someone else to do it for me, stopped buying into my own excuses, got the help I wanted and turned my life around.
I've lost 80kg, 6 clothes sizes and have reversed Type-2 Diabetes. My mission is to help people like you change your life the way I've changed mine”

“I've been fat for most of my life. Growing up I'd always been the "big girl" in my group and was treated that way.
Deep down inside I wanted to feel beautiful...attractive. I always dreamed of looking good in a bikini, but I thought it was never for me. I'd always be "the big girl".
Something changed, and I decided not to accept this and see just what I could do for myself if I put my mind to it...and really put in the effort.
I'd been a member at a local gym for years walking on the treadmill a few times each week going nowhere. I was really unhappy wasting my time and my money.
I got the help I needed and wanted. It's been a frustrating, challenging, painful and tearful journey but it's been worth every second. I sat around for years wishing it would happen but nothing did until I got off my butt and did something about it.
I've lost 25kg, dropped 4 dress sizes and want to help others change their life the way I've changed mine”
Megan Thomas - Assistant Coach
“I was convinced that my PCOS was going to ruin my life and I was destined to battle against the torments of my body. I thought I’d tried everything and nothing worked.
I stopped wasting time on diets, exhausting myself at the gym and buying into the Doctors telling me I’d never get past the endless hormonal disaster that I was.
I’ve repaired my insulin resistance, my cycle is regulated (and I’m ovulating). I no longer have a fear of eating and my body feels and looks better in my 30’s than it did in my 20’s.
I’m addicted to helping women who are experiencing the same hell I once lived and give them the health and body they’re capable of achieving too”
Andrea Schilf - Assistant Coach
“I’ve struggled with my self-confidence and body image for as long as I can remember – all I ever wanted was to feel comfortable in my own skin”.
I used to hide behind big baggy t-shirts and shorts when going swimming, and never felt comfortable in front of my partner. I used to think “just eat less and exercise more”, and I would get to where I wanted to be - But it sadly it didn't turn out that way, and instead I just felt exhausted and frustrated with a body shape I hated.
That was until I learned how to get the body I wanted – but most of all keep it.
Now being a mother and on the other side of 40, I have been able to to lose all my baby weight, sustain and improve my body image on only a handful of hours a week and I want to help other busy women achieve this too!!"
We've been featured in and on...
"I started working with Matt and Courtney around 18 months ago. Since then I've lost around 100kg and have got back to doing something I love, which is working with and riding horses.
I would totally recommend them to anyone starting in my situation. I started at 180kg and had a lot to lose.
They helped me learn how to do it slowly and safely. I'd totally recommend them for anyone else who wants to get to a point where they're healthy, happy and being the person they really want to be!"
"I live in the United States just outside of Chicago, Illinois and I started working with Matt and Courtney about 9 months ago.
Since that time I have lost a significant amount of weight, a few clothes sizes and I've gained an enormous amount of confidence inside and outside the gym.
I never used to go into the free-weight area or do anything outside of walking on the treadmill. Now I'm confident to do anything there! I feel younger, I'm complimented all the time on how great I look and on what I'm doing.
People will ask me what I'm doing and I tell them "I have a Trainer in Australia!" They ask me "Why do you have a Trainer in Australia?" and I tell them that it works for me!
He's been there, he's done this, he knows the struggles and he knows how to get you through them. IT WORKS! I would recommend this to anyone"
"Over time working with both Matt and Courtney, I've learned that with focus and a great support network around you, you can achieve anything you want!
I gradually increased my food intake through the course of my transformation and not only was I gaining more energy each day...my body was changing!
As I kept changing my confidence was growing and best of all my anxiety struggles were becoming less and less frequent! It's a rare thing for me to have an anxiety attack now.
The injuries I had before I started? I wouldn't even know I ever had them now. Getting stronger has helped in so many areas.
This whole journey has been so rewarding"
"After years of on and off again gym memberships, I was frustrated with my lack of commitment and being accountable to no one.
I start off with a bang, but then my enthusiasm and motivation drop off as do my regular visits to the gym. 2 steps forward, 3 steps back!
Coming into the later decade of my middle ages and the big 5-0 around the corner, I needed to change my approach and perception.
I had started to let myself go physically and it wasn’t until I looked at photos from our recent holiday that I realised things need to change and my previous decades of attempted fitness routines need to change along with my attitude.
I no longer suffer from Heart Burn, have more energy, eating more, no longer crave junk food, have drastically reduced my alcohol consumption, I'm eating way more good food and I'm loving my choices.
As we normally associate the word 'journey' with a destination/achievement in sight, for me this will be a journey with no end. Why stop learning, why stop progressing? If I keep pushing for both I'll continue to enjoy the benefits of this process!"
"I had a hip reconstruction and after completing my rehab with a Physiotherapist I wanted to get back to the 2 times a week cardio gym classes I'd been doing before my hip pain became too much.
My physio explained that I really needed to build up some muscles around my joints to support them and help prevent further issues.
I was referred to Matt by my Physio as someone trustworthy to work around all my long term injuries (limited ankle mobility due to breaking it previously, hip reco, 2 shoulder dislocations, 2 bulging discs in my lower back, and others!).
Initially I just wanted to get stronger to support my joints, but Matt inspired me from our very first chat and hit me with some big questions about what I wanted out of life.
He made me start to think about what was really holding me back, which was my self esteem and confidence about my body.
I was in my mid 40’s and not only thought my best body days were years gone, but also that life was just going to get slower from here on due to my injuries holding me back. I'm an ageing mum and that's just the way it's supposed to be!
But the big question for me was “What would it feel like to be in the best shape of your life?”
1 year on and I was posing in front of a photographer wearing a bikini and officially in the best shape of my life!"
"I'm a Trainer myself but spent years really struggling to transform my body. I struggled with accountability and I didn't know what I was doing what I was doing.
It was really difficult and I was starting to go backwards.
I sought the help of Matt and Courtney, we had a chat and worked out my reasons why I wanted to transform my body. They have given me the accountability that I need.
I also have a long-term back problem that was causing me issues in the gym and in every-day life.
Now I'm kicking goals, I'm really focused on what I'm doing and in my first program I've got great results and I'm ecstatic!
Can't wait to see what comes next..."
"I can safely say this has been one of the best things I've ever done for my health and fitness!
I've learned so much about myself and my body, and my confidence has grown so much.
I've been taught habits that will help me forever, while overcoming a lot of injuries such as a bulging disc where I was unable to sleep on my stomach.
Now I can perform any exercise I want in the gym safely and effectively!
Without this program I would not be in the condition that I am today"
"My goal was to be in the best possible shape by the time I turned 30 (I was 28), so I had a 2-year timeline.
I'm a Trainer myself and I want to be a leader within my industry and set an example for my clients.
I'm really proud of what I've achieved. I've learned the tools that will enable me to keep getting better in the future! "
"I needed someone to help me learn how to walk the walk.
I had an OK dad bod, but I needed a fit dad bod to be able to inspire my own clients (I'm a Trainer) and lead by example.
Most people now think I'm 10 years younger than I really am.
Would I recommend this? Hell yeah!"

“Having gone through this journey ourselves, we understand exactly what our clients will go through on the path to their own transformation.
We've been in the health and fitness industry a combined 16 years helping others achieve their goals. Our approach is holistic, realistic, flexible and sustainable. No need for diets, counting calories or marathon workouts.
Transforming your body and your life should be a fulfilling, rewarding and enjoyable journey not an endless slog where you feel like you have to live in the gym and be 100% strict on yourself to get a result. You don't - we've done it, you can too”
Who we are looking to work with...
The Transformation Project isn't for everyone and anyone.
We're here to transform the lives of people who are truly ready to embrace positive change while saying no to the bullshit excuses that have held you back for too long. If the following description sounds like you, we want to hear from you!
We are not afraid to say no. If we don't feel that you are a good fit for us, or vice versa, we will not waste your time or ours. We know exactly who we can and can't help.
The sad truth is that 99% of people wanting to lose weight are merely "interested" - they want all of the success while avoiding the hard work. We've done it ourselves so we know it just doesn't work like that.
We only work with the 1% who are ready. Are you ready to be a 1%er?
Host of The PCOS Podcast, Megan went through the hell so many women go through with years of money wasted on medical appointments, medications, supplements, diets and programs in various unsuccessful attempts to deal with her PCOS while improving her health and looking/feeling her very best.
At her lowest point, she was showing 40-46 polycystic cysts and was spending tens of thousands of dollars only to feel and look worse. These days as a coach to women who suffer with PCOS and other chronic conditions, she now has 9 cysts showing no signs of polycystic trends and is in the best shape of her life.
"I've dedicated many many years to learning about PCOS to help myself, and now to help other women out there who struggle with this condition. No, you don't have to turn this around by working out hour after hour after hour a day, or starving yourself through boring diets that are simply not enjoyable or sustainable.
There's a better way to do things"
