PowerCamp is a fun & addictive functional training facility that will take you to your limits! Located at Charlestown and Gosford Planet Fitness Clubs.
What’s not to love about High Intensity Interval Training? Our sessions combine intervals of high-intensity strength exercise with rest intervals. HIIT is considered to be more effective due to its high intensity, which increases your endurance while burning fat.
Our classes combine strength training and HIIT exercises to create the ultimate fast-paced workout. These small group training classes will progressively increase your fitness levels over time – expect changes in your body and to be challenged!
Our PowerCamp training facility is conveniently located inside our Charlestown & Gosford Planet Fitness clubs. Leave your comfort zone behind, step into our nurturing environment and let us push your perception of what your body is capable of.
Meet our awesome PowerCamp crew!
I became a Planet Fitness member and saw a PowerCamp class in progress, and I thought to myself “I want to be a part of that”. I have been a gym goer for a long time but I have never really felt overly “fit”. Since joining PowerCamp and doing functional training I have become faster, stronger, more flexible and my cardiovascular endurance has increased dramatically; thanks to the mixture of weightlifting, cardiovascular and gymnastic training. Not only has it made me a better athlete but the support and motivation everyone displays makes for an amazing community, and I want to share that with everyone.
My passion for functional training is evident in how I talk about it all the time, I love the results I’ve achieved and how I feel. I have learnt so much since starting PowerCamp and achieved things I never thought possible. PowerCamp not only inspired me but was the final push to get my Functional Training Coaching qualification, an industry I’ve always inspired to be part of.
I believe that functional training is one of the best ways of training your body. After doing my strength and conditioning course I gained further knowledge and understanding of technique, training variables and programming skills also to help cater the exercises for everyone. I want to provide a safe environment and get real results for each individual!

I was introduced to the concept of functional fitness during the 10 years that I spent in the Australian Special Forces. Since leaving the Australian Military, I have further developed these skills becoming a Certified Functional Trainer. My passion for fitness, and in particular, Olympic lifting, is evident in my classes with a specific focus on correct form and technique.
Being a 39 year old PowerCamper myself, I understand the need to train within the limits of an aging body and busy family life. My training takes individual needs in to account, helping everyone to get the most out of their bodies, regardless of ability or fitness level. My class participants enjoy achieving their own person best and realising their own fitness goals through PowerCamp.

Inspiration: Our bodies were designed to adapt and survive, it has been used to hunt, plant fields, taught to fight and defend. What I believe is that the body and mind is powerful beyond measure, and we should not go through life not knowing what you’re capable of.
