AFA training is great for anyone who wants to train in a controlled environment, through personal training, small group training or our fitness classes. Our goal is for you to enjoy your training and look forward to working out, plus achieve great results through our structured workouts. If there’s something thing we understand well, it’s how to get you started and to keep you training! We cater for different levels of fitness, experience and confidence and we love clients who view training with us as an investment in their health, wellness and longevity.
AFA is led by the inspiring Ali Flynn, one of Armidale’s most respected Personal Trainers, and backed by a team of knowledgeable and dedicated staff. Our class sizes are capped, guaranteeing personal attention and technique guidance for every person. It’s not a ‘one size fits all’ approach- we take the time to get to know you personally and to understand your fitness goals so that we can help you achieve them. We understand the role that psychology plays in your success and we help you to transform your thinking from training because you have to, to training because you want to. Our incredible staff want to see you fly and take the time to teach you correct technique so that you can confidently walk into any gym. We love nothing more than a client telling us they don’t need us anymore.

Don’t worry! Lots of our clients have had a break from fitness or have never trained before and this is one of the benefits of booking in with us. We pride ourselves on catering for all levels through each exercise and creating a supportive and friendly environment for people to feel accepted and not judged. We also offer beginner classes that can help to guide you through technique and individual exercises in order to help you progress to other classes when you feel ready and confident.
Dress in something comfortable. Most people wear shorts, 3/4 pants or long trackies and a comfortable top that covers the back of your pants. You will also need a pair of sand shoes and can talk to anyone on the team about where to go if you don’t currently have a pair. A water bottle, towel and jumper will also help you to get the most out of your sessions.
