Hi there! I’m Coach Chris!

Personal Trainer & Coach based in Brisbane, Australia. I have a passion for helping people discover their inner strength and for showing people that being "strong" isn't reserved just for athletes and people who live in the gym 24/7.

I've discovered over the years that with proper programming and quality exercise selection, anyone can become strong and enhance their lives without becoming a gym junkie. Or if you're so inclined, be a gym junkie and be even stronger!!

I started my professional career out in IT rather than the fitness industry back in 2006. In 2015 I started to get the itch for something different and began to envision a life in Health and Fitness.

I first started training seriously with Kettlebells in 2012 and became engrossed with the teachings of Pavel Tsatsouline and StrongFirst.

In 2016 my business partner Trent Dolman and I hatched our plan to open a gym and holistic health centre. In 2018 we moved from training people in the local park to opening our own facility & business called Balance to You.

Since then we have helped change the lives of hundreds of people through our small group Personal Training programs and 1-1 PT.

Co-owner and Head Coach of Balance to You Health Studio & ChrisDickPT, I have been helping people from all walks of life achieve their health and fitness goals since 2017.

Fast forward to 2021 I now also offer online training programs and bespoke training + online nutrition coaching services. Which include highly tailored and customised training programs and coaching clients to better health with the Precision Nutrition habit & nutrition coaching methodology.

I look forward to working with you and coaching you to a better you!
