She is very serious about perfecting form and technique to get the most out of the exercise and avoid injuries making for some very tough and rewarding workouts. Patrycja is always willing to share her knowledge to help you achieve your goals and creates a safe, reliable and supportive environment.

I started training with Patrycja at Fitin2it Personal Training to help reduce stress levels, release tension and lose some jubble around the middle, but what I got out of our training sessions was much, much more. Patrycja tailored a Kettlebell workout integrated with mobility that not only reduced stress and firmed up my midriff, but has helped me connect more with my body, increase coordination, helped me feel stronger and more in control than ever before, helping my confidence in and out of the gym.

Being fit and strong is important to me and as I get older, the more important it gets. Patrycja is an absolute stickler for form and technique. She will poke and prod you, obsesses about generating tension in your body and even gets the broom handle out (don’t ask).

I have trained in some form or another for most of my adult life. Being fit and strong is important to me and as I get older, the more important it gets.
Over the years I have had a number of great trainers, and all of them have had different approaches.
I have been training with Patrycja for 6 months. When she started, I had no idea what StrongFirst was, and had never done much with kettlebells. Turkish Get Ups were one of my most hated things, and I couldn’t even do them without a weight!

I’m 42 and don’t think I have ever been stronger, and getting better every week. I’m working on pull ups and towards a StrongFirst accreditation of my own. I still hate Get Ups, but now I can do one with a 20kg kettlebell. I love the challenge: this is mentally and physically tough, but also a lot of fun. If you want results, to achieve goals you wouldn’t think possible, and to work with a motivated and experienced professional, I couldn’t recommend Patrycja more highly.

Patrycja is one of only a handful of StrongFirst certified trainers in Australia and is highly experienced in the art of Kettlebell training and coaching.

She was able to take complex exercises and break these down and teach us the step-by-step process to build up to being able to perform common Kettlebell exercises such as the Swing, Snatch, Clean and Turkish Get-up safely. For those who are looking to develop their Kettlebell skills or looking to add it to their current strength and conditioning program, I would highly recommend seeking out Patrycja as a Coach.

What the trainers do at Fitin2it is a lot more than just getting “fit”.

It was the first time in two years that I had a break from work. I was on my exchange semester in Australia, and I had absolutely nothing to do. I had been eyeing the StrongFirst Girya level 1 certification (SFG1) for a while; my fellow trainers back in Montreal were crazy about it, and truth to be said, they looked amazing (if you didn’t know, StrongFirst Girya is about strength training with kettlebells. Read more about it on Strongfirst.com). I thought of myself as a retired athlete at 21 years old, but those people, who were in their thirties or forties, were heaps better than me in pretty much every aspect of fitness, and still competing! Adding all that together, I decided to start training with Patrycja at Fitin2it Personal Training in order to prepare for the cert (she is the only accessible trainer from StrongFirst in North Melbourne).

What the trainers do at Fitin2it is a lot more than just getting “fit”.

I usually think that everything is easy, especially when compared to the training I had done when I was a competitive swimmer at the provincial level (FYI, that means training around 15h-20h per week, and a bit more than that during training camps). I consider myself a fast learner too, which does not help my attitude when it comes to trying new sports. I’m cocky and I get bored easily from doing most kinds of repetitive training, which is often required to be good at a sport.

I started training at Fitin2it in the beginning of March 2017. I’m not a fan of lifting weights, for those of you who are curious, so that was the first time I did proper strength training. Although, we DID do weight training as swimmers, but from what I recall, it was more for muscle hypertrophy and muscle endurance than strength, and I hated it. This just goes to show that I was not very enthusiastic about it at the start, and was ready to bail at any time. In the end, I didn’t bail, and I got my SFG1. This cert might actually be the only thing I have really worked for since I stopped swimming. What kept me on track and even made my training FUN was my coach and friend Patrycja, who was ready to tell me the truth: that I needed more practice, that I needed to get my butt off the ground and that I had to start working earnestly. She gave me an appropriate challenge, safe methods to get to my goal, and made training very enjoyable.

 

To give you an idea of what happened: a bit less than a month before the cert (it was in mid-June 2017), I thought I was ready. Yes, it was a mistake from my part to think this way. Patrycja actually scolded me and scared the hell out of me!! It was the first time in ages that someone told me off like that. I was very disappointed with myself for being so cocky, so I worked my ass off afterwards. In the end, my left press, which I had trouble with, got good enough that I can do sets of 8x (5-5 press) with the 16kg with little to no trouble. I went from 0 pull ups to 3 from dead hang. My core strength and stability improved. My TGU could be done on some days with the 24kg. And most importantly, the results of my training transferred to the other sports that I had been doing: my climbing improved, and my swimming did not deteriorate as much as I thought (even though I had not trained in the pool for ages).

What I have learned during my training with Patrycja is not just physical strength, but strength of character. I re-learned what I have lost since I stopped swimming. I take training at Fitin2it to be a privilege; it’s not the kind of gym where you can walk into and say “oh yeah maybe I’d like to get stronger”, waste both yours and the trainers’ time, and walk out after giving up. Trainers at Fitin2it have expectations, and to be able to train with them, you have to meet them halfway. Having a trainer who is willing to be angry at you for not caring after yourself enough is so very rare in the fitness industry… I believe that I couldn’t have found a better place to train other than at Fitin2it anywhere else in Melbourne. I hear my coach say this quite often: “just COMMIT to lifting that weight”. I think it applies just as well to committing to your own well-being and showing up to training and make your body happy.
