Hi I'm Carolyn and I've been a health fanatic for over 30 years and now I am a personal trainer Bayside Melbourne for 22 years!

Don't get me wrong, I love my share of bad foods, but I've trained my body over the years to burn it off.  I can teach you too.  I love a good 'healthy eating Shred' every now and then, but all in moderation means I don't have to 'diet'.  Let's face it, no one likes that word, and we shouldn't have to use it.


I've done my fair share of fitness events over the years - fun runs, half marathons, full marathon, Oxfam, long and short trail runs, Obstacle courses such as Tough Mudder and Stampede plus others.  I can help you train for those.  But even more, I can train you to live life to your fullest through functional exercise. 

I love trying new things and make sure I cross train each day.  You can too with the group personal training schedule I created.


It's never too late to start on the health and fitness path to be leaner, stronger, fitter and healthier.  My mum didn't start 'til she was 66 and is now in the best shape of her life at 73, and my dad at 80 - no meds, just exercise and good nutrition! (See my wholefood nutrition page for more information)

I'm passionate about helping people achieve their fitness & weight loss goals.

My wish is for everyone to value their own life and prioritize themselves instead of others all the time.

It's a shame people create more stress in their lives rather than decrease it, which is a major culprit of weight gain and ill health.  Once the stress, anxiety, depression or hormonal imbalances are relieved, I believe the world is your oyster and you can achieve great things!  I can help with that.

So, if you're sick and tired of being 'sick' and 'tired' and if you're looking for a personal trainer in the Bayside suburb of Hampton, then my Group Outdoor Personal Training is for you! 

If you can't come to me then you can get my ebooks - Fit in 15 Vol 1 is FREE and Vol 2 only $10.  Together there are 9 workouts that can be done anywhere in 15mins, or more if you add them together.

Why do 1 on 1 Personal training?

You may feel intimidated in a group if you're just starting out.  If you're new to weights it's good to get your technique perfected before joining the group.  Or you may have a specific goal that you feel will be better achieved on your own.  Sometimes it's good to just have all eyes on You and 100% attention to your needs.  You might just want pushing to your maximum, whatever your priority is, you get.


Why do group training classes?

Working out in a group is the best.  It keeps the cost of your fitness classes down, but you are still getting the individual attention you need.

Group outdoor training gets you outside in fresh air, is very social if you want to be, and still getting you a great fitness or weight loss workout.

You get to meet new people who may share the same goals, so you can train to  achieve them together.  



Did you know increased oxygen consumption burns more fat? A 30min high intensity bodyweight workout will get your heart pumping and your lungs working hard.  If fat burning or weight loss is one of your goals – this is the class for you. If you know HiiT then this is my version.


Tight muscles can cause poor posture, neck, back, knee pain and difficulty performing daily tasks.

Yoga complements everything our other sessions offer by stretching & strengthening your muscles.  Give your body a tune up so it’s more efficient and recovers better - ready to go again.


Circuit training increases your metabolism while strengthening your muscles and bones.  You’ll feel stronger and enhance your body’s ability to burn fat.  Resistance training is form of strength training using weights or bodyweight and is recommended at least twice a week.  


Our core consists of abdominal and back muscles. By strengthening the postural muscles, we will stand and sit more erect, appearing taller, slimmer and more confident, also reducing the risk of injury later on.  

Suitable for pregnant women wanting to stay strong and recover more quickly post birth.


Can you walk up the stairs at work, run for the train, or keep up with your kids etc? If you’d like to learn how to go from a walker to a jogger, or jogger to runner I can show you how.

Doing my interval style sessions you will definitely improve your speed and fitness, along with all the other classes, 


If you can't get to our sessions in person then join us online for all the regular variety of classes.  Perfect for the mums at home, busy executives, or anyone time poor.  Get real time personal training in your own home or at the park. Do recordings in your own time if you like & add to a walk/ jog/ ride.

Small group personal training .. with a difference

Don't know how to get started on your fitness and weight-loss journey?

Do you lack motivation or just need someone to work with?  I can help make nutrition and exercise easy.

When you train at IFS it's not just an outdoor fitness group. We think we're different!  

We support and encourage each other with our group workouts as any 'effective' team does and we all work on our fitness training together.  You get Personal Training within a group

But it's more than just gaining fitness or losing weight. The focus is on healthy behaviours, rather than a focus on reducing body size.  You find many long lasting friendships are formed.  You're not just another anonymous face at the gym, but rather, you're a liked and valued member of our personal training team.

And just like any 'team' ... if you don't turn up to class without notifying me, you can expect a text to find out if you're Ok, and your fellow members will be asking where you are.  

If you have any niggles or an injury, don't let it fester.  I have well recommended Allied Health practitioners that I use to get you back on track, so nip it in the bud immediately.  We don't want you missing out on class - you'll get FOMO!

Very inspiring and encouraging at all levels of fitness.  I've been training with Carolyn more than 4 years now, and previously another 4 years, which speaks volumes. I'm sure I could not have kept up a gym membership for that long.




I can not recommend Carolyn Smith of Inspired Fitness Solutions highly enough. 
I commenced my group training with her not long before COVID and the lockdowns struck.   

The outdoor group sessions offer variety and different ability options which if fantastic for someone like me who loves to exercise but the body doesn’t always want to oblige anymore!  

Once COVID stuck Carolyn offered a daily zoom timetable with live classes plus recordings. Seeing my outdoor group on the screen really helped to keep us in touch and accountable, as did our what’s app communication and her “where are you?” messages.  

Keeping my exercise routine is critical to my mental health and I can’t thank or recommend Carolyn enough, particularly in these difficult times.

I have been training with IFS for 7 years now & would like to thank Carolyn for her continued support towards my health & fitness.
I would describe how I feel at present after a session as energized, refreshed, satisfied & above all - happy! Carolyn takes the effort to make each session different, she keeps in touch with members, makes sessions adventurous, fun & inspiring & she cares.
I have no qualms in recommending IFS.

Fuel for Change


By fuelling yourself with the essential micronutrients of our Juice Plus+® Trio blend (30 varieties of fruits, veggies & berries) along with our Vegan Juice Plus Complete® power shake to give you the micronutrients you need, coupled with physical activity, you will start to experience exciting changes in your body and have the willpower to make better choices for yourself. You will start to feel more energized, your salt and sugar cravings will decrease, and you will feel much better about your body. 


We even have Vegan Omegas now!  Straight from the source, we've cut out the middle man - or fish - & developed the best product for you, including omegas 3,5,6,7 & 9.  Wow!  No other product has all these. 

*Fun Fact:  Only 5% of the population eat the basic 2 fruits & 5 veg a day for minimum health requirements.  For optimal health we need to almost double that (9-13) according to the WHO.  If you can't do that, then JP bridges the gap between what we need & what we eat.  It's your health insurance in a capsule.

I'm also affiliated with the below charity which supports the health of indigenous & disadvantaged communities.  Click the logo to find out more.
