Improve your relationship with food

The way you fuel your body is as important as how you train it. Feeding your body with the appropriate nutrition that is specifically designed for you will guarantee your hard work brings results. We will help you develop a healthy relationship with food so that you can create a balanced lifestyle for you to enjoy.


Base nutrition

Learn the fundamentals of basic nutrition requirements by gaining an understanding of your individual macronutrient and calorie requirements to achieve your fitness goal.

Having this knowledge and applying it will guarantee your results when combined with our training programs.

Digestive health

Have your mind opened to a holistic health approach and gain insight into hormones, your digestive system, food sensitivities and the effects this can play on your physical and mental state.

You may appear to be doing all the right things with your nutrition and training but you’re not making any progress.

By optimizing hormone levels and your digestive system you will see your body rapidly improve the way it should be.



Minimize toxic exposure by making gradual changes to your lifestyle.

Understand the real science behind the body’s detoxification processes by implementing the three necessary phases to liver detox so that you don’t come across any fat loss plateaus.


Take your body to the next level with calorie manipulation and nutrient timing strategies.

Use advanced fat loss protocols to target stubborn body fat and your problem areas.




GRIPT is a passion that runs far deeper than physical results that focuses on understanding our people as individuals, being aware of what their motivations are, and what has stood in the way of having them achieved their goals already, ensuring we can educate and support them, through their new training program that will permit the greatest likelihood for success.

In a saturated industry GRIPT was founded out of my personal frustrations within a commercial gym environment where I was restricted in my ability to help a larger amount of people achieve their fitness goals. I was and still am sickened by the transactional exchange of time for money model that occupies so much of the personal training industry.

Our promise is to never compromise the quality of our service and endeavour to build your confidence in and outside of the gym by helping you achieve things you never thought possible.

This isn’t just a gym, GRIPT is your Body’s Sanctum.

Founder & Physique Coach, GRIPT

Jack Boon
Founder & Physique Coach

With years of experience in the fitness industry I have a passion for the people I work with. There is more than one way to skin a cat, and depending on the individual, I aim to provide you with the best possible pathway to improve your body composition and happiness within your own skin.
I specialize in hypertrophy training but am driven by seeing improvement. This applies to all areas of my life – physical aesthetics, athletic performance, business, relationships, and continuous education.
With countless hours of training under my belt, never ending research, seeking mentorship from leaders in their respective crafts I recognize the power of experience and strongly believe applied knowledge trumps theory.
My coaching has a big emphasis on assessing your individual biomechanics and using your mind to become your body. With improved coordination between your brain and the muscles you want to work we can create an optimal environment results.   
With an understanding beyond just training, I combine good old fashion hard work with a holistic approach into detoxification, gut health (digestion), and scientifically supported nutrition that forms my advice and opinions.

Drew Westfield
Strength & Conditioning Coach

After a late night conversation with Jack over the phone in May 2014 about how he felt restricted in the commercial gym industry and that they only cared about dollars and not making a difference to their clients. He told me what he was striving to achieve, a space where he could deliver the highest quality training, to educate people about their body and to support people to make the necessary changes to achieve lifestyle that they wanted to achieve - 3 months later the doors for GRIPT South Yarra were open.

Over the past 2 years the studio has grown with us. We have a strong culture within the studio of developing our clients, our trainers, our services and the studio itself. We continue to invest back into the studio with new equipment, facilities and growing the space so that we can continue to improve the quality of our services that we deliver. We want to provide a space where people can leave the distractions of everyday life behind to focus on themselves for 1 hour each day.

From a training perspective building people's capabilities is what drives me. Coaching people to understand the principles 0f each exercise, how to improve their execution and building belief that they are capable of achieving something that previously thought they were not capable of achieving.

My goal is for GRIPT to be a space where people can come and leave the distractions of everyday life behind to focus on improving themselves for 1 hour each day.

Dean Francis
Strength & Conditioning Coach

With six years experience in the fitness industry, I have been able to gain a comprehensive understanding of strength, rehabilitation and training for performance.

I have a passion for educating each of my clients in a one-on-one environment on how their body works and what it is capable of achieving through physical training. I use a combination of training styles including Strength, Conditioning and Plyometrics to increase performance as well as Mobility and Hypertrophy to improve physique and strength. I create a high energy and challenging environment for my clients where you are able to go beyond your personal boundaries.

Nathan Kennedy
Strength & Conditioning Coach

What gets me out of bed every morning is the desire to work with people who are committed to improving themselves. I coach and support each of my clients to develop the habits which are going to allow them see real change to their body and to their lives.

I like to get a deep understanding of each of my clients, their ambitions, what makes them tick and what makes them want to drive to achieve success. With a big emphasis on strength training in my sessions, I work with each of my clients to improve their understanding of each exercise and their ability to execute it.

Coming from a elite sporting background playing College Basketball in the USA, I understand the importance of structure, strategy and giving yourself the best opportunity to perform by being supported by good habits. All of these things I like to work with my clients on to allow them to perform in and outside of the studio.

As a young father I understand this importance of young mother's remaining active pre natal and in their post natal recovery. I have worked closely with a lot of young mothers towards finding that balance of caring for their child and just as importantly caring for themselves by looking after their health, body and well being through their training. We are extremely accommodating in the studio to make sure young mums can take the time out of their day to focus on themselves.

Hear what some of our clients are saying...


Prior to GRIPT I never enjoyed exercising and I was much more focused on weight loss, but with their guidance I have transformed my views on my health to be much more positive and a way of life rather than something I HAVE to do… My focus is now on becoming a stronger and fitter version of myself.

Bianca Vagner-Cromber
Marketing Co-Ordinator
KOOKAI Australia

I had always found it extremely difficult committing to an exercise routine, mainly due to a lack of understanding of what I should be doing and how I should be doing it.. Now since joining GRIPT I find myself extremely motivated and I genuinely enjoy my training which I have been able to make a part of my lifestyle.

Eileen Cassidy

Training at GRIPT has allowed me to develop my physique which I have previously found difficult doing - originally being stocky, I’ve been able to drop body fat whilst forming a leaner, more symmetrical and athletic figure.

 All the sessions are planned and have never been the same.. All I need to do is turn up and smash it as hard as I possibly can, which is perfect for when I’m not as motivated or I don’t have a trainer partner, I know I can turn up and I’ll be surrounded by a group of people who are also looking to challenge themselves.
