Personal Training - running and general fitness

"Today is a momentous day. In May 1996 I ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament inDarren my left knee, ending my involvement in impact sports for the rest of my life - that's what I thought and that's what the operating surgeon said at the time. It's weighed on my mind ever since. On January 24th 2015 I met an Aussie PT who said "I will have you running inside two months". Well, today is March 21st and today I RAN!!! Ten 30 second bursts, with 60 second rest periods between each, covering 1.25miles. I cannot tell you what it means to me to finally banish that demon, but let's just say "AMAZING" and it's a start... Massive thanks and respect to Ernie Jewson of Wombat Fitness, who has such belief in my ability".


Sports Massage
“As an Ultra Marathon runner having regular sportsKate photo massage is an excellent treatment for muscle injuries, but more importantly is absolutely outstanding in terms of injury prevention and general physical wellbeing. Therefore I have used a number of talented Masseurs and Physiotherapists over the past few years, but I consider Ernie to be top of the league in terms of technique, ability to home in on problematic areas, work them effectively without causing too much pain, his general professionalism and ability to put you at ease. I would have no hesitation in recommending Ernie to anybody, male or female, sportsperson or those not so active.”

Sports Massage (overall body massage)
"I wanted to give you some feedback on my massage
and I would not mind at all if you want to use this as a reference.  I loved my 90Glynis minutes on Friday and time flew by, nothing at all was painful but strong enough to enjoy.  I could not wait to book another session, I was 100% happier than I can remember feeling for a long while. I had not realised I was not feeling happy and relaxed until I actually had that feeling again. I am in a very stressful job and I think although I do lots of exercise, I do nothing to relax myself. I do think you are extremely talented and in addition you really love what you do which is very refreshing.  I cannot recommend you enough."   - Glynis

Personal Training - running and general fitness
"I have been training with Ernie for 6 monthsEmily now and couldn't ever look back. I started training with a long term goal of completing a 100km trek across the Sahara, not only did Ernie give me the fitness to achieve my goal, he also gave me nutritional advice, safety information and wilderness training! Having completed my goal with moderate ease and in impeccable health we are now working towards the London marathon 2014! As a girl who was fanatical about all things lazy, Ernie has completely changed my way of thinking and living.  He has a treasure trove of health and fitness knowledge and is an expert in running, training, wilderness and trekking along side being a warm, spontaneous personality that makes workouts fun. He is the real deal in an industry full of wannabes and is the standard by which any trainer should be measured. In short he is an outstanding master of his craft." - Emily Moreton

Personal Training and weight loss
"I have been working with Debbie Jewson 
since September 2015 to improve my general Claire Townleylevels of fitness and to lose weight.  I have now lost 3 stone!  I cannot rate Wombat Fitness highly enough.  Debbie is SO supportive and encouraging.  I feel so much better in myself, have loads more energy and for the first time ever in May 2016 I took part in my first ever "Race for Life" where I achieved a personal best time.  I will continue to go to Wombat Fitness as my journey is not yet complete."


Trekking - health and fitness
"I am 66
years old and I was between the ages of 40-50 when Ernie introduced me to
Allan Lloyd wilderness trekking. Having no knowledge of the bush and what it holds it was a new experience that has stayed with me ever since. Camping overnight in the snow on the summit of Mt Bogong 6000ft on my first trek was an experience I have never forgotten. With Ernie’s knowledge of bushcraft and  survival techniques he is the complete professional in every detail. Having completed these treks made me look at life in a completely new way, giving me confidence in what I had completed, the confidence that you are able to do whatever you want.  In 1993 Ernie planned a 12 day trek/fishing (Ernie is an excellent trout fisherman) through central Tasmania which involved gruelling 8 hours a day trekking because of snow. Without Ernie’s expertise we would not have completed such a wonderful and unforgettable experience. Now having a partner in Deb they have both found their love for ultra running.  With their inspiration in keeping healthy in mind and body they started Wombat Fitness. I have no hesitation in recommending anyone to their world of fitness and health." - Allan Lloyd
