Personal Trainers

Head trainers Tash and Lukas have been perosnal trainers for most of their adult lives, and as much as they love their training - they're equally passionate about the culture and positive energy that a good fitness community can create.

Prime Athletica is a place where training and classes are defined by the knowledge and passion of our personal trainers, executed using the best equipment and conducted in a welcoming, friendly environment where no one takes anything but their training too seriously.

Training! Meeting new people, animals, massages, food – cooking and eating it, long walks (doesn’t have to be on the beach) but I also love the beach and the sun.

Lukas Pashalidis
Co-founder, Personal Trainer & Class Coach

Favourite Training Methods
I grew up using bodybuilding principles but nowadays I try to be open to all methods of training and essentially believe in a style with no style. Implement what works and disregard what doesn’t, regardless of what discipline it stems from.

Likes
Table tennis, the beach, chilling out and training.

Dislikes
Obnoxiousness, absolute belief systems (of any description) and unwashed protein shakers.

Favourite Food
Since going vego, definitely pizza.

Mango Lassi.

Nick Milwright
Personal Trainer

Favourite Training Methods
I look at training as a way to enhance our lives outside of the gym which means being strong through full ranges of movement. Using a mix of biomechanical resistance training, functional movement patterns and high intensity conditioning and plyometrics would be my favs.

Likes
Making music, listening to music, writing, reading, dancing, learning about the human body, watching films.

Dislikes
Politics, rubix cubes, gym music

Favourite Food
Oofff how can I stick to just one? Croissants, Little Hop Tacos, cheese, roast rack of lamb, Box Brownies.... that’s pretty much a perfect day’s diet.

Favourite Drink
Same as above, one is not enough…dirty martinis, sangiovese, riesling, coffee and of course the understated champion....water.
