I hear you! That's why I created The Progress Project.

Who Am I

Who Am I

My name is Justine Guest. I run a very, very small and personalised fitness business in Perth - The SMART Body Project. You've probably never heard of it and that's the way I kind of like it.

I'm not an Insta famous fitness model. Or a celebrity. I am a normal person just like you. I don't set up my fitness business to be about me - it's about you. I have spent my life around health and fitness having had my own training business for the past 10 years (I'm a young 45 years old now). Before that I lived and breathed gyms. Being a Personal Trainer means the world to me - especially now.

SMART Body Project helps me to help clients make sense of the weight loss and fitness industry.  Can I get a little personal for a minute?

I have a chronically ill son - he's 10.  And he's been sick his whole life but we only just have the answer (literally a few months ago). The only way I have been able to navigate this situation has been with the ongoing love and support of a few amazing people who helped me to understand so we could find our way.  I couldn't make headway with his health until some amazing people helped me.

Diagnosis (of Mast Cell Activation Syndrome) has changed our trajectory - we are back in control with a diagnosis and support. I know first-hand how much having someone on your team who believes you and believes in you means. It's the little things.

So here's the thing. And it's a really big thing. It is a lie that you need to kill yourself training at a high intensity, starving yourself or going on a fad diet to get results. You don't. I promise you.

I support clients with moderate intensity weights training programs and sensible eating that is sustainable.  And guess what? They're getting shit hot results (oh, by the way, I swear from time to time).

If you're ready to step away from the hype and hysteria of the diet and weight loss industry, welcome to my quiet corner of the internet. I'd love to help in any way I can. I mean that.

I wouldn't have my son or my life back if it wasn't for the generosity of others and their expertise. I was educated and guided through a maze of possibilities until I found the answers I needed to help my son and myself (no, doctors didn't find out what was wrong with us - I did. And the doctors diagnosed us. Long story).

I want you to know that if you find weight loss confusing and confounding, you're not alone. I will work with you to get results. If you want a simple, down-to-earth approach with someone who's willing to go the extra mile for you, look no further. I will help you.

Choose to work with a person, not a brand,  and I'd love for you to choose The Progress Project.  

I look forward to meeting you soon x
