Give us 12 months and we guarantee to get you in the best shape of your life, for the rest of your life as long as you stick with us for 12 months, face-to-face or online.

We’ll provide you with daily support, guidance and accountability, every step of the way, no matter what life throws at you.

Unlike a diet Our program is designed to systematically develop the knowledge, skills and strategies that ensure you stay consistent on your worst days and not just the best days.

Ronnie and Mel have built something very special at Imani. They have created a space which generates a genuine sense of community amongst members. It makes rolling out of bed bright and early to go to the gym much more appealing when you know you’ll be walking into a room full of smiling face and shared agendas. Their metabolic programmes are grounded in scientific method and research, something which of itself is incredibly valuable and unusual in a world full of health and fitness gimmicks. They encourage building consistency over the long term, while celebrating the small achievements along the way. However, the true gold is found with Ronnie and Mel themselves. Not only are they lovely people, their combined experience and knowledge is outstanding. They are measured and methodical in their approach to technique, and my husband and I have improved in both our body shape and our general levels of fitness in a relatively short period of time. They show a great duty of care to their clients, always going above and beyond our expectations. Their workouts are fun and challenging, utilising playful strategies which not only distract you into exercising, but push you beyond your perceived limits. This is not your average gym. You will be pleasantly surprised.

The fitness industry has led you astray

There are many personal trainers out there who’ll tell you that boring diets, fasting, starving yourself and long workouts is the way to lose weight and improve your body shape. Sometimes this is because they want you to sign up to their ‘quick-fix’ or fad diet. But sometimes they’re simply repeating the same messages that everyone else is, because they don’t really know themselves.

But what if we told you that this is all wrong. What if we told you, that the secret to losing your weight permanently is to stop counting calories, stop starving yourself, stop the long workouts, and instead, eat lots of food and exercise only a handful of hours a week? And what if we told you that this approach was backed by science?

We’ll show you how to lose body fat and build your confidence for sustainable, long-term results

All our programs are designed to help you lose body fat while simultaneously improving your mindset and habits. Without a change in habits, any results you gain will not last.

Our programs can be delivered face-to-face and online, so you can work with us no matter where you are in the world.

We know that signing up to a 6-week or even 12-week challenge isn’t the answer to your problem — so we don’t offer that.

Instead, we offer a holistic Body and Lifestyle Transformation Program that truly changes lives because we understand the pain of always hiding in shame because of being embarrassed and uncomfortable with your body.

Feeling embarrassed & uncomfortable in Your Own Body Sucks!

You avoid having your photo taken, or doing anything that may cause you to be ‘seen’.

You want to be active with your kids, but you’re parenting from the sidelines because you hate how you look.

You desperately want to lose the extra kilos and feel happy in your skin, but you don’t even know that it’s possible.

All up, you’re mortified that you’ve ‘let yourself go’.

You’re shocked to realise that while you’ve been busy working hard to provide for your family, time has marched on, and you’re now feeling older and more tired than you should.

You don’t even recognise the person looking back at you in the mirror these days.

Your confidence is low, and it’s beginning to impact the rest of your life, including your work.

If you could have just one wish, it would be to have a body you could be proud of, and to feel happy, worthy and confident.

Well you can. You’re just one click away from having the body you want and the confidence you crave!

Our Confidence Avalanche Academy (Body & Lifestyle Transformation Program) is almost full with only a few more spots left.

Will our confidence Avalanche program work for you?

Yes, and here’s why.


Unlike diet plans we customise our program to fit into your life instead of fitting the program into your already busy and hectic life and taking over your life.

Unlike diet plans that Don’t address the habits that led you to become overweight in the first place, we help you change your habits so that you can get into the best shape of your life.

Unlike the diet plans that only focus on one thing — what you LOOK like — and the quickest way to get you looking better, even if that means your overall health suffers in the process.

We focus on all the 3 fundamentals of a successful body and lifestyle transformation

• How you LOOK (body composition and shape)

• How you FUNCTION (energy levels)

• How you FEEL (general health)

Because we know that without LOOKING good, FUNCTIONING better, and FEELING fantastic, you can’t be consistent and without being consistent you can’t achieve permanent results.

Think about it!

How many times have you gone on a diet, only to feel tired, grumpy and run-down?

Sure, by going on a diet — aka restricting your calorie intake and increasing your exercise — may get you short term results, but at what cost?

Focusing on losing a certain amount of weight, or wearing a particular dress or pant size might help you look great for that special occasion, but what happens next?

You know what happens next.

Whatever weight you’ve lost comes back with interest. So you start the process again.

There’s nothing quick about quick fixes.

You cut your calories, perhaps even cutting out entire food groups. You ramp up the exercise and you push yourself to exhaustion, trying to lose the extra kilos that you’ve gained, along with the original kilos you lost in the first place.

It’s a punishing routine that just isn’t sustainable. So you give up, telling yourself that you’re ‘not that bad’ compared to everyone else, but underneath you’re desperate for a solution.

Sound familiar?

Unlike a diet, our Confidence Avalanche program is a complete process that constructs the correct environment for permanent change & removes the limiting factor that prevents success by giving you knowledge, systems, tools & skills - solutions for any situation, every single day.

We know and understand life can get crazy.

Business, work, children, ageing parents, running a household, and all the surprises life can throw at us. It just never stops being complicated or busy.

That’s why we do something very different.

We show you how to make health and fitness a part of your life, no matter what else is going on.

Our program is designed for your absolute worst days — not just your best days.

You know the days I’m talking about… you’re low in energy, nothing goes your way, your partner (or children) aren’t pleased when you get home, and you have a million other things to do than spend 2 hours working out and cooking organic meals.

Normal diet and fitness plans tell you to just tough it out.

No excuse! You’ve gotta want it badly enough.

If you’re aren’t willing to put in the work, you don’t deserve the results.

That’s just silly, and it’s not reality. Which is why we work closely with our clients to help them eat well and exercise no matter what’s going on in their lives.

We’ll bring the accountability it takes for you to stay consistent. We’ll review your progress, answer questions, and make recommendations to help you improve.

We’ll tap you on the shoulder if you start to regress. And we’ll help you get past each hurdle along the way.

The result? You’ll get into the best shape of your life within 12 months.

And you’ll have the habits, skills, and tools to stay that way for life.

We use this approach to get people just like you maximum results with less time and effort.

Need help eating better, improving your health and fitness, and finally getting the body you want without the pain of dieting and exercise taking over your life? 

Get in the best shape of your life, for the rest of your life!

It’s time to improve your health, get the body you’ve always wanted, and say goodbye to dieting forever.

    Get in the best shape of your life, for the rest of your life!

    It’s time to take control of your health and fitness and achieve the transformation you’ve always wanted.

    I started with Imani Fitness at the beginning of this year, and already I'm down a few clothing sizes and feel stronger and healthier than ever before. However the biggest change is my outlook and my headspace. The trainers at Imani are incredible at helping you crash through barriers - physical and mental. They are wonderful mentors and have built an amazing community where blasting through bullshit and achieving each success, no matter how small or how large, is celebrated by the whole tribe. I was not an 'exercise' person before Imani, and now I cannot wait to get to my training sessions. If I'm not quite 'in the mood', I know either my trainers will get me through it, my amazing training partner, or the tribe will. Cannot recommend Imani highly enough.

    Ruth Collins

    When I first met Ronnie and Mel last December, I had one goal in mind - “look a million bucks on my wedding day” - while that was a fine goal to start with, these guys made me look way deeper, set bigger goals, helped me define my WHY, opened my eyes to see my habits and most of all created an amazing supportive team of individuals all on a journey. Without this team I think I would have dealt with this year much differently! The support they gave me when I went through some very tough times was incredible. Life has a way of throwing hurdles at you but it’s how you climb over them and move forward is what makes you stronger. What an awesome group.

    Before joining Imani I had lost all my confidence. I just kept using the excuse of being a busy working mum and couldn’t find time to exercise. Imani has changed all of that. I can’t wait to get to training in the mornings, I love working hard and feeling strong again and I have started to regain my confidence and self belief. Mel and Ronnie are incredibly knowledgeable and in tune with every member’s needs. They create such a welcoming and supportive environment, are always there to answer any questions, support and celebrate every member. Don’t wait any longer, check them out, you won’t regret it!

    We focus on achieving results, not making false promises

    Our program contains diet advice and tips helping you build a sustainable meal plan for yourself over the long term to help you lose body fat. It includes:

    • Access to incrementally challenging, cutting edge training programs.
    • Specific advice for you based on each phase of your journey via our online portal and accountability from our secret Facebook support group.
    • Access to exclusive videos showing you how to perform each exercise in a safe and effective way. (You’d be surprised how many experienced fitness people waste time and effort not working out properly).

    Online nutrition coaching

    If you need trusted and accountable advisors to cut through all the confusion, to help you lose body fat and get you results fast, while teaching you the skills to keep that weight off for good — online training with the Imani Tribe could be for you.

    We ask every new client to keep a food diary of exactly what is consumed during the preceding week. This way we can accurately conduct a full-scale audit of dietary habits and make positive changes that are particular to how you eat.

    We are also very careful to integrate your nutritional plan within your existing lifestyle. Our view is that the word ‘diet’ is a misleading term. Our main concern is putting you on the right track to create healthy eating habits for life.

    Depending upon the client and the goals, we may also map out a full-scale supplementation program that includes every possible permutation of what food supplements a client could take to enhance their progress.

    Bespoke exercise program

    This includes a full 12 months of workouts, from resistance training to cardio and active rest sessions. By completing our detailed assessment and appraisal forms we not only learn the hard facts of your previous exercise experience and medical history, but are able to understand exactly what motivates you in the pursuit of your own unique physical excellence.

    We write up a fully personalised periodised training program for you that encompasses every aspect of exercise science that will allow you to achieve your goals in the quickest possible time.

    Every workout for the whole 12 months is planned out – right down to load (weight), repetitions (that in some cases we will deliberately vary from workout to workout), and rest intervals. This way we can accurately predict your progress, and eliminate the need for any guesswork on your part.

    Unlimited access to 2 transformation experts

    This unique offering is the same as having us coaching you in person with two distinct differences:

    1) You MUST be accountable to get the most out of this. Without our one-to-one in person coaching you will need to be dedicated, disciplined, and focused. Anything less and you will be wasting your money and our time.

    2) You get the benefit of our online coaching expertise. Do not underestimate the power and usefulness of having a transformation expert at your disposal.

    No matter where you are, we deliver maximum results in minimum time

    We don't believe in leaving anything to chance.

    Are you ready?

    Are you ready to stop hiding in fear so you can live life to its full potential?

    Are you ready to learn how to lose body fat without fad diets and long workouts?

    It’s time to take control of your health and fitness and achieve the transformation you’ve always wanted.

    I joined Imani Fitness looking for a change and a challenge. When I took this on I was very much ‘see how it goes non-committal’. I met with the two owners/trainers Ronnie and Mel - two beautiful committed people, more committed than me at the time. I was non compliment and they were committed. They are passionate and caring. So I quit. They wouldn't let go until I was honest with them. Now 3 months in to full commitment they are and me too, life changers. Their holistic approach, accountability, caring approach is becoming a life changed for me and others. We are what I call a fitness family. We all encourage and support each other whatever our journey or goals. Imani isn't just about physical fitness. It's about changing your whole life approach. Right down to nutrition. Self-awareness and self-love. If you believe you could benefit from this please contact them. Even if you are interstate their network is expansive.

    Mel and Ronnie have created an amazing space, a place to workout, a place to learn and grow, a safe place. At IMANI I have made friends for life! Together we support each other, we celebrate our wins and we help each other reach our goals. Over the last two and a bit years I have had many wins and many learning opportunities. I have learnt that transformation isn’t about physical body change, it’s not just about exercise or nutrition. There is no such thing as a quick fix! I have broken many habits and created many new ones, I have had physical changes, mental changes and emotional changes. I have also gone out of my comfort zone several times and completed things I thought I never would.

    Samantha de Paula

    Trainers Ronnie and Mel are passionate about changing lives and genuinely care about their clients. I’ve learnt so much from them in the few months that I have been a part of the ‘tribe’ and I can’t wait to learn more! They’re professional and at the same time super friendly and approachable. In joining Imani, you’ll be made to feel like you’re part of a big family who are all there for the same reason – to get fit, healthy, and strong. I intend to train with Imani for years to come!
