After spending 9 years in the corporate world in 2009 I made a career move into the fitness industry. During my 9 years behind a desk I noticed how the long hours being sedentary, easy access to convenience food and the stress of high workloads contributed to weight gain, not only for myself but for those around me. I found out the hard way that following twice a day training regimes, restricting calorie intake, cutting carbs and everything else out of my diet and leaving no room for error was both unsustainable and short-lived.
Since 2010 I have been a personal trainer in Port Melbourne starting in a commercial gym and then moving to my current location at Fluid Health in Bay St, Port Melbourne. In this time I have undertaken numerous qualifications in both strength training, functional training, nutrition and hormonal and blood analysis.
My focus is to provide a straight forward and time efficient approach to improving body composition.
Specifically, I have completed BioPrint, now called Metabolic Analytics which looks at how body fat distribution relates to hormonal and metabolic imbalances. Once these hormonal and metabolic disruptions are corrected we notice more efficient changes in body composition either through fat loss or muscle gain.
BioPrint specifically looks at the influence that insulin, stress, cortisol, estrogen, testosterone and toxicity has on body composition.
Blood chemistry analysis relates to how specific blood markers affect health and body composition. When you understand how certain hormones are effected by training, stress, sleep and food intake you are then able to improve the functionality of those hormones which will then improve body composition, training intensity, sleep, and energy levels.

Here is what past and current clients are saying about Nick Hall.
“Turning a couch-potato into a gym junkie is no small feat. Nick has been incredible. His cutting-edge exercise routines are individualised and challenging, but not more than you can handle. It’s no understatement to say that Nick has literally changed my health and my life”.
“I trained with Nick for about 1 year (before leaving the country otherwise I would still be with him). Not only does he take you for training but he actually takes an interest in what your goals are and whether you are on track to achieve them. His training is a complete package including nutrition and any advise you could think to ask for. He is fully knowledge in all aspects of fitness, weight training, nutrition, etc and under his guidance I lost over 5 kgs (and have kept it off), toned my body, and now live a much healthier life style. I highly recommend Nick and when I return to the country will definitely be hiring him as my trainer again”.
“I’ve been training with Nick for over a year now and it’s been an absolute pleasure to work with someone so dedicated, professional and good-natured. My health, fitness and general well-being has improved dramatically since I started working with Nick and I can’t imagine going back. I couldn’t recommend Nick and his body-transformation program highly enough”.
“As a long time exercise junkie, I’ve always been self-motivated and reasonably fit. Nick has helped re-invigorate my training regime and modify my eating habits to support the demands I make on mind and body. I have halved the time I spend training yet my strength and fitness have increased. Combined with his nutritional information and tips, I now have the tools to sustain a healthy weight without resorting to calorie-counting or “diets. At long last!”.
“I’ll be the first to admit I hate the gym. If I can spend as little time as I can in there but still get a beneficial workout, then I’m all for it! And that’s what I’ve learn’t training with Nick. I’ve gained knowledge about the right types of foods to eat and that healthy foods doesn’t always have to be bland but also that I can be in and out of the gym in 30-45mins doing the right types of exercises and not 2-3 hours like i used to.. that’s a plus in my books!”
“Nick has totally transformed my attitude towards training. I would studiously turn up at pump or body attack classes, thinking I was working hard and feeling shattered afterwards but not really seeing any results. After signing up with Nick and firstly training with weights, I could not believe that I was lifting my own body weight and more after a short amount of time. Because Nick said I could do it, I believed I could do and sure enough I did! I toned up in all the areas I wanted. We also began some cardio training. Now this really excited me as I never realised that in just 30 minutes (10 mins on the treadmill, 10 mins bike and 10 minutes rowing machine) I could increase my aerobic capacity and reduce body fat very quickly. I won’t tell you the secret of these training sessions – you’ll have to ask Nick for that! If you need nutrition advice – Nick is a whiz. I put all the training and eating advice into practice and loved the results. I can highly recommend Nick. He is very personable, encouraging and supportive. He backs up his sessions with informative e-mails too which is a huge bonus.”

I trained with Nick to get wedding ready (which was a success) and then throughout my first pregnancy. Best PT I’ve ever worked with and would highly recommend.
We went to Nick Hall to get in shape for a wedding. Nick was great to work with, had a very open and friendly approach and knew when and how to push us to achieve our desired outcomes. Nick helped us not only achieve our goals but to surpass them. We stayed on a training program with Nick well beyond the wedding date and continued our personal training with a good mix of weight lifting and cardio works. It was great to be pushed, challenged and (working with Nick) achieve new goals. I'd highly recommend him for beginners through to advanced trainers. Thank you Nick.
Nick is absolutely brilliant. I've been training with him for close to three years and my physical and emotional wellbeing has improved drastically. I highly recommend Nick to anyone looking for a trainer that will transform their life.
Nick is a very knowledgeable man. He has been doing my bioprints for many months now and has help me fix hormonal imbalances, gut issues and drop a substantial amount of body fat.
This all assisted me to win the INBA Sports Model Victorian Titles.
I highly recommend going to chat with Nick.
I'm in the best shape I have ever been in, thanks to Nick. I'm an actor, and went to Nick to get in shape for a channel 10 TV series, so I needed noticeable results quick. I got a lot more than I bargained for: not only did I pack on some serious lean mass and shed considerable body fat in a matter of weeks, Nick got me to do a Bioprint profile that gave me the most comprehensive breakdown of where my body was at nutritionally , and where it needed to be to support the weight training. I'm no pro, but I'm not new to the gym, I've read all the books, I've tried all the supplements with some success - but training with Nick has simply taken my training to a whole new level. Whether you've never been in a gym, or a pro, he takes all the guesswork out of your diet and your training. Simply put, I've just never felt and looked this good! Super friendly and approachable, training with him was an absolute pleasure. This guy knows his stuff, can't recommend him highly enough.
