My passion for fitness started when I was very young growing up in Cronulla, getting involved in many sports and becoming a lifeguard. From early on I knew I wanted to pursue a career in the fitness industry. I get great satisfaction in helping others to achieve their fitness goals and develop a love for fitness, as much as I do. I am motivated to work with my clients in developing tailored programs to fit in with their everyday demands, making sure they are enjoying their program and feeling good about themselves whilst achieving their goals.

Evan Apolony

Personal Trainer/Group Training Instructor

Similar to many Aussie kids, my childhood was sport, sport, sport. Encouraged at a young age to pursue my dreams, I learnt fast that getting there would require a lot of hard work.

Around the same time, my father, who was severely overweight, decided a lifestyle change was much needed and thus his health and fitness journey begun.

Seeing him turn his life around and losing well over 40kgs, along with pushing myself in order to achieve my sport and fitness goals, I grew a strong passion for health and fitness and realised the impact I could have on other people and their lifestyle.

From that point on, it became my desire to learn, grow, and improve my knowledge, both to improve my own self, but also to share with as many people as I can reach in order to help better themselves.

Dean Simpson










Contact Dean:

Personal Trainer/Group Training Instructor

I grew up around Sport and Fitness, competing in many sports in particular Surf Life Saving events. I not only loved the sport itself, but I loved the training and fitness aspect and the benefits it provided me, and I knew on completion of high school that I wanted to turn this passion into a career. As such I completed my qualifications in fitness and Personal Training, and I now enjoy the challenge of helping others reach their health and fitness goals whatever those goals may be. During my sporting life I learnt the importance of individualisation of a training plan, and I bring this experience to my work as a personal training knowing that there is no single approach that is perfect for everybody. I look forward to working with clients with different needs and helping them to their ultimate goal.

Personal Trainer // Group Training Instructor

I have been involved in sports from a young age including athletics, rugby league, rugby union, and oztag, but once I found the Surf club and Ironman, this is where I found my passion for fitness and training. Winning several state and national medals, I developed a solid interest in fitness and the benefits of training for performance and for general life. I want to share my passion for fitness and help others reach their fitness goals, and help my clients lead a healthier lifestyle no matter what age or starting fitness level. I believe health and fitness has the ability to increase quality of life for anybody, it just needs to be individualised to fit with one’s life commitments.

After many years as an executive accountant in the corporate world, I have transferred my long-standing passion for fitness into my new career.

I am determined to use my life-skills, mindset, and experiences to help my clients invest in themselves, and to enhance their physical and mental well- being.

Having never really been a natural athlete, my personal achievements have been driven off enthusiasm, discipline, and dedication, which I feel positions me well to support you in achieving your goals.
