Shape Health and Fitness was created by Amy Holmes, experienced personal trainer and healthy lifestyle coach. Amy has been an active fitness participant for the best part of 25 years as an athlete competing at state level in athletics and various other sports including ice-hockey, netball and basketball. She pursued her love of fitness by completing her personal training qualifications in 2008 and opened her first fitness business Shape, Rattle ‘n’ Stroll (pregnancy and post-natal fitness) that year. With the growing success of Shape, Rattle ‘n’ Stroll, Amy expanded the business to include Shape Health and Fitness, and cater to the broader community.

Shape Health and Fitness believes in a holistic approach to exercise that assists people of all ages to reach their fitness goals. As part of this holistic approach, we provide healthy lifestyle coaching with nutrition assistance and stress management, so that our clients achieve a healthy and balanced body, mind and lifestyle. So whether you are looking to improve your fitness, manage your weight, decrease stress or achieve an overall healthy lifestyle, we can guide you towards your goals. We believe that every person is different and therefore we personalise packages according to your individual requirements. We pride ourselves on providing a unique training environment that offers variety (no session is exactly the same) and keeps you motivated towards your goals.

With many years of experience in working with women, men, adolescents and children, Amy Holmes has created new and innovative programs to assist the Bendigo community in achieving optimal health and fitness. We have designed and facilitated health retreats since 2010 with great success. Our health retreats offer participants a weekend away from the stresses of life, by treating their body to massage, guided relaxation, yoga, personal training and healthy lifestyle information sessions. Our 12 week challenge has also seen great success since its inception in 2012, with 3 years in collaboration with the Men's Health clinic at Bendigo Community Health Services.

Shape Fitness Studio has a qualified knowledgable team of exercise professionals apart from Amy which includes Tegan, Ben and Zebb.
