A Bit About Me

I’m a committed, passionate and well-rounded strength and conditioning coach, rehabilitation coach and educator with experience measured in decades rather than years. Over the years I’ve worked with four elite AFL teams, an NBL team, extensive triathlon coaching at elite and age group level, a world tour level road cyclist and internationally with elite individual and team athletes in a major sports institute.
I‘m strongly committed to coaching excellence and have worked tirelessly to continually learn and improve my knowledge, my coaching, my teaching and my communication.
I have a strong focus on functional training, understanding movement patterns/limitations and movement correctives and hold a firm belief in the value of whole-person development.

I am 48 years old and Mark Cera was my personal trainer for 18 months. With his guidance and support, I became fitter and stronger than I had ever been, and was able to move with more confidence. When I was attending his sessions, my back problems were non-existent, as he prepared a bespoke plan to strengthen my core. Mark's experience is extensive and supported by strong academic qualifications in sports science. I always felt that I was pushed at exactly the right amount to keep improving myself. I would highly recommend Mark to anyone considering a personal trainer - his expertise in this field is second to none and he is always encouraging and supportive.

I decided to approach Mark Cera two years ago to be my personal trainer. I was in my late 40’s and as a result of numerous injuries and operations on those injuries I was struggling with strength in my legs and day to day movement. As I began to work with Mark I very quickly realised that his knowledge in his field and his ability to tailor a training regime for someone that had similar needs to mine was second to none and knew exactly what exercises to give me to avoid discomfort and further injury while putting me on a pathway to recovery. Mark is a true professional. I have and would continue to refer anyone I know to Mark if they required any form of personal training.
