Personal Trainer

Sam is certainly not the skinny 16 year old kid who started off here as a member back in 2012. From completing his work experience right here at Urban Fitness, to now working as the Assistant Club manager and running his own personal training business, what started off as a hobby has developed into so much more.

Sam is passionate about improvement and thrives off seeing others succeed. He’s worked with many clients over the years between Urban and a corporate health club which he managed in Box Hill Hospital. Working with clients of all ages, disabilities, substance abuse and everywhere in between, Sam has a wealth of knowledge that he’d love to share with everyone here at Urban. Get in contact with him to book in a free initial assessment today!



Taylah comes to Urban from working for herself as a Mobile Personal trainer. She is best known for working with clients looking to lose weight, gain muscle and advice on general nutrition. 

Taylah is very goal-driven and thrives when she has a good challenge! One thing she is well known for is her high standards when it comes to training and besides getting great results – she has a huge belief in “Knowledge is best used when you are able to pass onto others”.

Feel free to reach out to Taylah if you are looking for a Personal trainer who lives and breathes health, fitness and nutrition.

Tim Wright

Gym Floor Assistant

Timmy started at Urban as a member in 2016 and 4 years later finds himself in an Urban Fitness uniform! Timmy helps out with general cleaning around the gym along with friendly chats on the gym floor with all of our members and guests.

Timmy has had limited opportunities in the workplace, so we gave him a chance to join the team in January 2018 and he has impressed our staff and members with his bright and bubbly personality ever since.

Timmy is also a huge supporter of ‘The Pies!’
