Mieke is a thoughtful and proactive trainer who is always looking to tailor her approach to the client in front of her rather than using a 'one size fits all' approach. She has shown expertise within her scope of practice as well as developed networks within the health industry when she needs to refer. As an osteopath I value working with people like Mieke as she is always interested in furthering her understanding of the human body and involving herself in the rehabilitation and betterment of her clients who have injury or dysfunction. I would absolutely recommend Mieke in both a PT and managerial capacity. Dr Luke Bryan (Osteopath) BSc (Clin Sci) MHlthSc (Osteo)

Mieke has worked for me as a group personal trainer for a year and a half and I have known her in a professional capacity for three years total. Mieke has extensive fitness industry knowledge and proactively continues to learn and develop. She has the skills to train people of all ages, fitness levels and any injuries. Mieke is exceptionally loyal and reliable. In the three years I have worked with her she has not once called in sick or cancelled. Furthermore, she arrives at every session with a positive, bubbly attitude and a huge amount of energy! She has the ability to motivate and engage all members whilst ensuring they have fun. She has been an asset to my business.

No one brings more passion to their sessions than Mieke. I’ve had the pleasure of training with Mieke over several years doing everything from Cardio, Boxing, Weights .... in fact you name it! Thanks Mieke for intuitively knowing when to push me out of my comfort zone and when to be there as a support cheering me on for just making it to the session. You wear your heart on your sleeve and your passion for fitness and drive to always bring your best as you support people to overcome their challenges is a rare gift. Highly recommend Mieke to anyone looking for an amazing person on their fitness journey.

Plateauing? Not being pushed? I’ve been struggling to break the 2 hour half marathon for years... Then I met Mieke. I regularly did double and triple sessions back to back. But not with Mieke. I know I am going to be sore the next day after training with her. There was no way I could do double sessions with Mieke leading. She pushes me hard. She wears her heart on her sleeve and doesn’t hold back her expectations for me. I know I’m in safe hands because too. She’s deeply knowledgeable and dedicated to in fitness. Many times when I researched something on fitness and then ask her about it, she already learned it. It’s nice to have an expert looking after you.

When it comes to fitness I’ve never met anyone as knowledgeable & dedicated as Mieke! She has been by my side from day 1 of my fitness journey, up until I reached my goal weight. I’ve had the pleasure to be trained by her daily, from cardio to boxing & everything in between! Each session brings new challenges, but Mieke always knows when to push you & how to motivate you so you can achieve your goals! Thank you Mieke for getting me out of my comfort zone, for motivating me & for bringing so much energy & heart to your sessions! It has honestly been a privilege to have such an amazing trainer. I would highly recommend Mieke to anyone looking for an incredible trainer on their fitness journey!

Mieke was the push I needed to really stick to my goals and start seeing the progress I wanted. She’s the queen of all ball busters, but such a joy to report back to and have a kickass boxing sesh with. I’ve had recurring lower back issues forever, which she’s been able to adapt my work outs to, so I’d still be pushed to my limits without the pain and excuses. I’d definitely recommend Miekes to anyone looking for a push in the right direction and ongoing support to reach/exceed your goals. She really cares and is no longer just a PT, she’s also a top notch mate.

My wife, Dr Di Clifton, and I have known Ms Costa from the time which she arrived in Australia from New Zealand several years ago. First contact was when she was doing an internship with Matt Brindle, a highly regarded personal trainer and fitness expert. We have had a close personal relationship with Miecke and can attest to her intelligence, active and charming personality, scrupulous honesty and with a high level of personal integrity. We have been impressed by her knowledge of musculo-skeletal functioning and her capacity to impart information in a respectful and impressive manner. She displays initiative and empathy as I am aware from various reports .

Meike trained me for about four months and it was with the aid of meike that I understood how much my physical ability is. Moreover even today what she trained stays in me and I remebr them everytime I hit the gym. I had to move out of Australia due to change of workplace or I else I would still be getting myself turned by meike. I was finding hard to lift 8 kg kettlebell and after having had personal training session for 7 weeks I needed up pushing my limit to 100 kg squats that's how she helped me build myself and my inner strength.

Mieke is an experienced coach who clearly loves her job. Working alongside her at an outdoor fitness franchise, she was always energetic and ensured her members worked hard and had fun. She will definitely push you to be your best but understands when and how to change exercises to suit and challenge you, no matter your level of fitness. She puts in the hours to keep upskilling her training knowledge to ensure her clients get the best workouts possible. She also practices what she preaches outside of her work hours and is great fun to workout with. You’ll definitely enjoy your sessions with Mieke!

Mieke is such an inspiring coach. She knows just how to push me hard enough to make it hurt (in a good way) while also being very mindful of my ongoing injuries and limitations. All done with a huge smile on her face. One-on-one boxing with Mieke was the best. She is a true weapon and will whip anyone into shape.

Mieke has been helping me for more than one year, she is the best supporter i have ever had, she saw me cry and be really depressed and she encouraged me during my fitness and mental recover every day. When I stopped training she was every day trying to convince me to look forward and start again. I reccommend everyone to have a personal trainer, a supporter someone like mieke because she is first of all an awesome person and secondly she put positivity, energy,determination in everything she does. So, if someone would like to train hard, get result, stay positive she is the right person!

Mieke is one of the best person I have ever met. She taught me how much my body can do If I just give a positive attitude and a bit more love to myself. With her I learned a lot from the simple exercise to how have balance with yoga and I can’t thank her enough for the hard work she has done for me. She’s not just a personal trainer but a friend who take care of you pushing your limits to the maximum levels and making you achieve your goals!!

Have loved working with Mieke over the last years. She is an all round trainer - great at moving you into gear when required but also very knowledgeable in all things muscles and stretching. Have boot camped with Mieke to strength and strengthening with Mieke. Not to mention she is a super funny and sometimes what’s needed to take your mind off training pain.
