Another Amazing Transformation

It brings me great pleasure in sharing the graduation photographs and success of Bashier.

Bashier joined FitStrong in 2019 to add strength and conditioning to boost his mountain biking fitness. An untimely bike crash in Winter 2020 and a broken collar bone brought bike riding to a halt but that didn’t stop Bashiers gym time. Within a week of surgery Bashier was back in the gym, arm in sling and he followed a special program I put together for him to maintain his power and strength.

A year later, a new challenge arose when I introduced the Amazing 12 Express to FitStrong. Bashier jumped at the opportunity to lose some weight and gain some new endurance and skills. By the time of graduation Bashier had lost 7kg and added some new muscles too. His Squat 5 rep max became a 30 rep sub max, but 5kg heavier! His Pull-ups increased from a messy 1 to a strong 4 and his Bench Press 5 rep max increased by 64%. Remember that shoulder injury? Wow! All this with just three 45 minute sessions a week and having never touched a barbell before! So impressed is Bashier with the Amazing 12 that he has signed up to follow the program as soon as the gym reopens after New Year. I can’t wait to see what Bashier does next time. Great results to come. My next wave of the Amazing 12 will start early January. To learn more, head over to The Amazing 12 Brisbane.

A Dad Bod Transformation

Hello there, Well it’s me Jamie, a trainer of 25 years and I love to exercise, stay strong and I Love food too. So, yes, I’m human!

However, it was easy to settle into a life of getting older and accepting an expanding waistline and hiding it under my baggy gym shirts.


Starting winter this year I thought it was time to take action and maybe set an example to others as we start to exit our pandemic lives. I studied hard and became a certified Amazing 12 coach, one of only a few in Australia and then I jumped into following the formulated 12-week program of very reasonable exercise and a simple, calculated nutrition plan that still allowed for a chill out eating day ‘every week’.


The Amazing 12 is regarded as the World #1 Total Body Transformation program that has transformed the lives and physiques of 10000+ people over the past 15 years.
The program requires commitment to just three 45 minute training sessions per week, a commitment to making some nutrition changes and a commitment to changing oneself for the better. It’s only 12 weeks!


I currently have a crew of 7 people undertaking the program, due to finish by Christmas.
Early 2022 I will be starting another wave of the Amazing 12.

An Incredible Physique and Athletic Performance in 12 Weeks!

Amazing 12 will show you how to release your UNLIMITED potential without drugs, gimmicks, and most importantly, without PAIN. Through careful manipulation of the mathematics of training progressions, your training will propel you forward in ways that will amaze you.

We help people struggling to get lasting results …

Most people feel inadequate in their ability to get results in the gym. They believe it’s impossible for anyone to achieve significant natural gains in strength, muscle gain, fat loss, and cardiovascular conditioning simultaneously in ANY period of time– let alone in 12 weeks. And they think that anyone promising to deliver that must be selling snake oil…Wrong.

… Get the superhero’s body you’ve always wanted

The Amazing 12 program has delivered hugely substantial gains in physical strength and cardiovascular performance that are accompanied by aesthetic changes of an incredible magnitude in just 12 weeks. We can do that because we know you already have the strength potential that can take you there, right now without building anything new. There’s a specific way to unleash this, and almost all other programs fight your efforts and shut you down. However, once we show you how, the sky’s the limit.

Amazing 12 programs safely and comfortably perpetuate gains in strength, hypertrophy, fat loss, and cardiovascular conditioning simultaneously, and at levels never before thought possible drug free. We’ve created almost 10,000 jaw-dropping physical transformations with men and women, of all ages, shapes, sizes and genetics, and are regarded as the world’s number 1 body transformation program.

If you want to be successful you’ll need to:

  • Be willing to invest in yourself
  • Bring a positive attitude
  • Be fully committed
  • Be motivated to achieve your best possible result in 12 weeks
  • Be willing to learn technical excellence in the exercises involved.
  • Have the courage to meet ‘the real you’, for potentially the first time, at the end of 12 weeks. 

A12 Express at FitStrong Strength & Wellness

The A12 Express is another part of the proud A12 lineage, designed by A12 creator Paul McIlroy, specifically for people on the go!  At just 45 minutes per session, including the warm up, 3 times per week, the A12 Express is designed to produce the biggest ‘pound-for-pound’ (or minute-for minute) result imaginable in the most efficient way possible! 

The A12 Express, with only 105 minutes of training time per WEEK, and 36 total sessions in 12 weeks, the results are astounding.

What’s involved in The A12?

#1 Optimisation of Exercise Technique – We’ll show you step-by-step the optimal (and required) techniques and their subtleties to master each exercise and minimise risk of injury even as you progress through higher and higher strength levels.

#2 Optimisation of Nutrition – The food you eat is very personal and if you battle through hunger or if your body craves something that’s missing, you will suffer needlessly. And then you’ll stop and eat what you want. The stakes are higher when it comes to fitness programs because the diet versus exercise debate has traditionally accepted the view that “It’s 90% diet.” We’ll teach you how the reality is that it’s actually 90% training when it comes to a body TRANSFORMATION (sounds bogus we know, but look at our results…we’ve proved it and we’ll prove it again and again). 

#3 Optimisation of Exercise Programming – Great technique and great nutrition are not enough. For optimal results, you need optimal programming. And since the vast majority of programs out there do not get results (and most fitness coaches fail to deliver results for their clients), something is clearly broken with fitness programming.  The main problem is the accepted view of “no pain, no gain.” It’s inspiring talk, but it’s no way to get long term results and is physiologically counter-productive. The reality is “Any pain, no gain.”! To perpetuate progress we shouldn’t leave our comfort zone…we should EXPAND it until it envelopes our previous limits.

When and Where can you join?

The Amazing 12 Brisbane is run in Albany Creek throughout the year in the privacy of the FitStrong Strength & Wellness gym. 

The next wave is due to start in early 2022.  Due to growing interest, I am building a list. If you would like to express your interest in taking part in the Amazing 12, the first step is to meet up, talk through the details and get added to the 2022 list. 

Due to the detailed coaching and support offered, only a small number of people can be taken through each wave. 

If you want to see people just like you, how they started and how they transformed, check out the gallery of transformations. You can even compare age groups, over and under 40s ladies and gents.

FitStrong Definition of Strength Practice 

At FitStrong we practice the skills of strength and mobility aka moving strong and well. 

Oftentimes however, outsiders have a mixed thought about what ‘practicing strength’ means. 

Is it bodybuilding, is lifting to the extreme to boast our achievements at the end of the week, is it like the stuff you see cross fit doing – or is it something else? 

Let me briefly define how I would categorise the key three areas of strength training that we practice and who these forms are generally for. 

Restorative strength

This is what I recommend to people who feel weaker through lack of activity, busy lives and work etc. This could be described as rebuilding the strength we know we should have. The ability to do gardening all morning without feeling worn out. The ability to play with our kids, or grand children if we’re at that stage. The ability to be able to get down to the floor and back up without difficulty. 

  • Restorative strength forms the basis of my over 55s classes that run two mornings a week and hopefully a new class midweek (early evening).
  • This service is also available on a one-to-one basis and is covered in some of my current shared small group sessions.
  • Restoring our natural strength and abilities is well in truly covered in customised MovNat programs.

Progressive strength

For sports, special endeavours and explorations. When we have established a good level of strength and want to take it further. 

  • This a service I provide on a one-to-one basis owing to the specialised nature of the programming. 
  • This often occurs in small group training when it’s a common goal.

Transformation strength

Strength is a wonderful tool, an attribute every human was born to possess. Strength can be used to transform someone physically, to lose unwanted body fat, increase fitness and flexibility, increase self esteem and learn valuable lifestyle habits. 

  • Our Amazing 12 program is the service I run throughout the year in waves to help people meet the person they know they are. I know that sounds cheesy and full of hype – but it truely is an ‘awesome’ program with fantastic outcomes.
