FitLife AU is a private studio gym located in Woy Woy, equipped with top-of-the-line weights, cardiovascular machines, and functional fitness equipment. Owned and operated by Laura Witchard, certified personal trainer and group fitness instructor, specialising in strength training, and offering personal training, group fitness classes, and open floor.
Everyone is different. Age, gender, body type, metabolism, health status, injury, etc. all play a huge part in achieving our health and fitness goals. At FitLife AU, we recognise that there is no "one-size-fits-all", there is no "perfect body type", there is only perfect for YOU! We want to help you understand exactly what that "perfect" is and how to achieve it without the unrealistic expectations, unhealthy behaviour, severe dieting and overtraining.
Whether your goal is weight-loss, muscle gain, general health and fitness improvements, strength, mobility/flexibility, performance/sports-specific, or a combination of many goals, our expert trainer will design a program to get you the results you desire.
Laura Witchard - Owner/Head Trainer
Born and bred on the Central Coast, NSW, I spent most of my time in the small town of Patonga. As a child, I was always outdoors; riding bikes, bush walking, swimming, fishing, etc., never inside watching television or playing video games.
I started dancing at age 5 and continued until I was 18. When I was 15, I began riding dirt bikes and would spend every afternoon and every weekend on the track trying to improve my skills. From the age of 18, I began running Umina Beach daily and soon after joined a gym where I fell in love with weight training.
After spending many long years working in an unfulfilling and stress-filled job, I decided it was finally time to make a change and move into an industry I truly cared about where I could help people make positive changes in their lives. I completed my Certificate III and IV in fitness with the Australian Institute of Personal Trainers in November 2016 and began training out of a gym in Erina.
In July 2017, I decided it was time to create my own studio so that I could offer my clients the best service possible to help them on their health and fitness journey. I found a space and began working tirelessly to turn it into a state-of-the-art strength and fitness studio.
