TURN on television and you are likely to be confronted with a fitness show, such is the interest and emphasis on this important part of our daily lives.

With more than half of Queenslanders reported to be overweight or obese, Ipswich has more than its fair share of people in this category.

The trend to losing weight and getting fit is good news and locals are embracing it.

Two personal trainers have joined forces to give private, personal training to local residents. Kelleigh Wallace has established Envy This Body Personal Training and partner Andrew Saunderson is operating Body of Evidence Personal Training.

"I completed my course in January this year and started up about two months ago," Ms Wallace said.

"On Monday evenings we have started a group session that caters to all people and you can come along when you can, so it makes it easy for people. Friday mornings I have a special session for mums and bubs. I call it booty camp.

"It is gentle exercise for new mums to get to tone up and have some social time."

Both Kelleigh and Andrew recognised that each person is an individual, and as such has special needs.

While the television programs go very hard on the individual, Ms Wallace is not supportive of this approach, but prefers to be less aggressive and to build up self-confidence.

The duo work off each other and clients are welcome to have time with either and are encouraged to see who they feel most comfortable with.

"We offer that freedom and level of trust," she said.

One big plus with a personal trainer, besides the one-on-one support, is the fact that there is no locked-in membership.

The two trainers are keen to see the obesity issue decreased, especially in Ipswich, and are concerned for the long-term health issues associated with being overweight.

"We want to help people get back on track, get rid of diseases and enjoy life as they should," she said.

Both businesses are growing and welcome the opportunity to answer any questions.

Contact Kelleigh on 0429 872 531 or Andrew on 0427 080 499 for information on sessions, groups or to make a session booking.

Taking some time for yourself and caring for your body is important. It is not about being anything but what you are happy with.

"We are both Ipswich-born and bred and it is great to be in practice in the city," Kelleigh said.

The Tower Central Cafe is managed by Katherine Thompson, who cooks all food on the premises. At present she is undertaking further studies in her area of interest.

Her mother has been a great influence, caring for her husband and children; she spent a great deal of time in the kitchen.

The homemade influence is notable at the Tower Central Cafe, which is at 114 Brisbane St, Ipswich.

Call them for more information or details on offsite catering on 3281 5576.
