Claire Murphy – Coogee

I have been training with Yves and Team One Fitness since about 2014 and it is one of the best decisions I have ever made. I was never a fit person or a sporty person or particularly confident but Yves has changed all that! He discovered a sporty and competitive person I never even knew existed!

Yves is one of the most genuine, passionate, committed, enthusiastic, experienced and energetic trainers around and he makes the classes interesting, fun and most of all challenging! His knowledge is extensive and he knows how to motivate people and get the best results no matter what your fitness level. My fitness levels have improved dramatically. Without Yves I definitely would not be as fit or as strong as I am or feel as happy and confident in my own skin as I do now. He has changed my life.

Yves tailors the sessions to meet the needs of the class and knows how far you can be pushed and what your limits are but he always makes sure that technique and form are good and any injuries are accommodated in the classes.

Training on the beach is amazing whether it is in the morning or the evening and I love training outdoors. The classes run whether it is raining or the sun is shining. The people that train with Team One Fitness are a great group of people which helps makes the classes more entertaining!

Yves always has a smile on his face and is supporting, kind and personable.

I would highly recommend Yves and Team One Fitness if you want to get fit and meet new people no matter what your age or fitness levels. Yves genuinely cares about his clients and his easy going, friendly personality creates a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. If you are serious about changing your life for the better, Yves will lead you every step of the way.

Having tried numerous gyms and fitness groups over the years, Team One has been the only one that has consistently kept me fit, strong and motivated. I have been training now with Yves for over 9 years and always look forward to his lunch time sessions (perfect escape from the office). Yves energy, knowledge and enthusiasm rubs off on the entire class, making training enjoyable yet challenging. No class is ever the same and he is particularly good at recognising the variety of fitness levels and goals, encouraging those that want to be pushed that little bit harder. My technique has improved considerably, and with his guidance managed to train throughout my pregnancy right up to 38 weeks. I would highly recommend!

Yves is an amazing trainer 🙂 Anyone who joins Yves will get amazing results. He’s a motivating and inspiring trainer 🙂 He’s helped me so much in my weight loss journey and I’m forever grateful.







Zak Harcombe – Coogee

I’ve been training with Yves for nearly 8 years now. His attention to your form whilst you exercise is what makes him stand out from the rest. A recent trip to the Physio confirmed this when I was showing her the exercises we do. It’s also an enjoyable atmosphere to train in as well as open to all. Can’t recommend him enough.





Jemima Woo – Coogee

I’ve been training with Yves for 5 years now and have had lots of experience with group training and different trainers.
Even though sessions are group and circuit style, Yves pays extra attention to tailor exercises to individual fitness level, goals and any unfortunate injuries.=
I also enjoy my morning sessions because of the other group members – all with different levels of fitness, but all super friendly and motivating.
After a few sessions you’ll feel fitter, stronger and happier!




Charlie Blight – Bondi

After a 10 year hiatus from any form of exercise that didn’t involve nightclubs or festivals I found myself 10 kilos overweight and struggling to run half a length of the promenade in Bondi.

My upcoming wedding meant it was time to bite the bullet! I was nervous about seeing a personal trainer and quite frankly embarrassed about how unfit I’d let myself get.

Yves put me at ease on my assessment and put together a training regime that suited my level (or lack of) fitness. We set long and short-term goals with respect to my weight and lifestyle. He built up the intensity of our sessions over time, focusing on core muscle strength, cardio and running.

Within 10 weeks I surprised myself and most people who knew me and ran the Mosman10K in 52 minutes. By the time of my wedding I was at my target weight and exercising 3-4 times a week. I completed city2surf last year in 73 minutes and the Sydney half marathon more recently.

I never thought I would say this, but I now enjoy exercise rather than seeing it as a chore.

Yves is always touching base and motivating with a smile rather than a grimace. He has devised exercise and diet plans for me to keep on top of my goals and fitness. He even rang from his trip in Europe to check how the training for the half marathon was going.

I would highly recommend Yves to anyone who wants to get fit or take their training up a notch. Although some words of warning, he does have a rather unhealthy obsession with kettlebells, but if you ask him nicely he might
show you his tyres!




Matt Paradise – Bondi

I have been training with Yves for about six months and would highly recommend him as a personal trainer. The sessions are very individualised and tailored to my specific needs and goals. He is motivating and encouraging in a very positive manner without having to be “shouty”. Yves uses a variety of functional techniques and equipment including boxing, rope work, kettle-bells and body-weight exercises. These keep the sessions interesting and challenging and I am steadily achieving my goals of increased strength and definition.




Cameron Marchant – Bondi

Team One Fitness is a great place to improve your health and fitness while having an awesome time. I’ve been training with Yves for about 6 months and I can say that all the sessions are well thought out and never the same. He connects with everyone training and makes sure you’re engaged in the right way at the right level. I feel fitter and generally better (physically and mentally) since starting his training sessions and it’s a great feeling to be on the beach while watching the sunrise. I strongly recommend Team One Fitness!



Prue Shaw – Coogee

I just wanted to say thank you sincerely for all your support, encouragement and awesome training sessions throughout the year.
I have really enjoyed boot camp and it has totally transformed my life and I just love doing exercise now and a huge part of that is due to your ongoing motivation.

One of the many great things that I enjoy about your training sessions is the variety. Every morning we turn up to train there is a great variety of training options from core strength, weight exercises to improving and developing running and cardio stamina and it is amazing how that 45minutes flies by!

You as a trainer take the time to get to know everyone in the group and you motivate and encourage everyone to reach their goals.




Kristina Gram – Coogee

I trained with other training groups for short bursts but I’ve found Team One Fitness to be the best- great training which is outdoors. It’s always on in any weather… It’s an amazing start to the day and Yves ensures he understands your goals. It feels like a fun team and I’ve always enjoyed it. Thanks Team One Fitness!!






Killian Donelly – Coogee

Despite Yves early foray into male modeling he realised he was likely to be more of a success in fitness!!
What struck me first about Yves was how he knew everybody by name, often at classes of over 25 people.
It gave you an immediate sense of someone who had a vested interest in you, and ultimately your fitness and goals.
Couple this with workouts which were always varied and challenging and you had a perfect recipe for success.
His passion for fitness is infectious and I have no doubt anyone who trains with him and puts the work in will be delighted with the results.




Sophie Often – Coogee

Having just relocated to Melbourne I dearly miss my sessions with Yves and crew on Coogee beach! Perfect location to make your morning exercise something to look forward to and great sessions (HIT/boxing) which are guaranteed to get you into shape. Couldn’t recommend enough!!






Fiona Weir – Coogee

Had a great time doing these classes found yves very motivating and friendly can’t wait to return next year to join classes again. Thank you.







Andre Fernandes – CBD Domain

After previously trying to train on my own or with friends, i’ve found joining Yves’ Team One session ensures i am motivated, consistent and keeping fit, active and building strength. Due to my work schedule and commute distance i found it difficult to find time or motivation before and after work to train from home or at a local gym. I attend Yve’s bootcamps on my lunch break in the CBD and it allows me to get off the computer and out of the office. It’s a great way to break up the day and i feel more motivated/active in the afternoon. Yves is friendly and a pleasure to train with while also pushing and corrects my form when needed and i’m less likely to be slack or lazy during a session than when i train on my own or with friends. The smaller team size means Yves can focus on each person and help develop our strengths and weakness. The session duration is perfect and its bang for buck. Highly recommended.




I want to personally thank you! Thank you for getting me started at Coogee! I have already lost 17 kg, and if it wasn’t for your encouragement, I likely would of dropped out! Thanks again for giving life back to me! Hope all is well with you and your precious family.
