"Good start to a Friday morning. Craig is great at what he does. Guiding us through the Bikram poses and helping us use the right parts of the body to get the full stretch! Also love Lou’s Pilates classes. This time around my butt was on fire, great class! Great people! Nothing gets better then that!"

Love the vibe. Positive and supportive culture with nice and clean facilities... I love all the classes, tried Yasmins Yin Yoga Nidra for the first time today and loved it!"
The studio has a great vibe, Lou’s a fantastic trainer with loads of energy! I've never done Inferno Hot Pilates before and went into the session with no expectations. It's a fantastic workout and will definitely go again!

I have never been a morning person, but the encouraging, welcoming and friendly staff at Well Trained environment has me up every morning for my 6.30 class. I learnt a lot of new things related to my practice, and I have advanced a lot since I started. Excellent instructors always correct poses. Very clean environment I would highly recommend Well Trained NZ to everyone , Value for Money FUN FOR EVERYONE!!!

I love going to Well Trained. Lou the owner is an awesome chick, she has an amazing aura, nothing is ever a problem, she makes you feel welcome and genuinely follows up on your progress. Customer service is everything to me. I plan to sign up as a member. The instructors deliver clear instructions and are super supportive. They don’t push you, they motivate you.
Note: do not be scared of the heat, you will get used to it. It helps you bend and stretch better. The studio is clean and smells great before and after class. Participants are of all ages, shapes and sizes with different levels of fitness, everyone is welcome. Give it ago with a friend or two. The studio offers a range of classes if you just want to Zen or need a burning workout. Try the intro offer. I did!

Yoga + Pilates Fusion Class:
"Loving the fusion classes!! Best of both worlds. Lou gives us an amazing work out where I can really challenge myself, then Yasmin swaps over to save us with some Vinyasa to stretch everything out. Loved the Sunday morning workout. Feeling amazing afterwards. Thanks ladies xx"

Thank you for opening this Well Trained Studio in Manukau. It is such a warm and welcoming environment, very clean and absolutely beautiful decorations always filled with a calming aroma and freshness. I am absolutely enjoying all the variety of classes offered. It has really helped me not only physically but also mentally. Anyone practicing here will never want to go back to a Gym... Lou and her instructors are full of passionate and energy every time they teach, very positive and encouraging to help me reach my goals. Thank you Lou for looking after us.

Mate that Hot Yoga class was awesome! Been wanting to try for 10 years. My back felt amazing, you guys will see me again. Was just awesome!
Norman - Testimonial
I haven't done any form of exercises nearing two years. I was feeling unfit and nervous to attend the pilates class. I talked myself out of it a few times prior to my first class. But I am so glad I built the courage and showed up on the mat. Now 3 weeks on I am loving it and I look forward to each of my class. I have done similar style pilates before but I used to dread going to those classes. There is a sense of calm in the way Lou runs the class. Lou is the anchor to my busy chaotic days ☺

Awesome classes with Craig always - he is very attentive to all his students. And such a great space to practice hot yoga, still feels fresh and spacious despite the sweat!

Great Vinyasa Yoga class thanks Yasmin. I really enjoy your sequencing, modifications and sense of humour!
Great 90 minute hot yoga class. Craig provides clear guidance on postures, what part of body, muscle being used and provides advice for little changes that I can make to improve the posture. Demonstrations have helped me improve my postures. Highly recommend Well Trained, facilities are great and instructors are supportive and great at what they do.

Great class thanks Lou - your classes make me come back which is pretty amazing given I was adamant I didn’t even like pilates! Definitely getting stronger...
Kiri S - Testimonial
Positive and encouraging, you make everyone feel welcome. It feels great to be a part of that. I love Lou’s classes, online and in person. She’s a positive and expert teacher and I can see the benefits. I’m stronger and the classes are helping my recovery from from a shoulder injury. And because the classes are low impact I’m confident. Lou also has great music and manages every individuals needs very well. Thankyou!

Lou is a superb fitness instructor! Love the clear instruction, directions, knowledge on muscle groups. Also love your playlists in group classes, and what gets me through is your laughter and humour. Thankyou!
Sarah Spencer - Testimonial
Classes are always well planned and seeing a noticable difference fast. Lou also trained me during lockdown. I'm usually a couch potato and did at least one class a day with Lou online and loved every one. I am feeling so much better. My plank holds, technique and cardio improved fast. It was lots of fun, and now have an regular fitness routine, when in Auckland I'm in her classes, otherwise we do online Zoom!
