At Zest Personal Training, we believe in real people training and educating real people.

Combined with qualifications and experience, the attitude of Team Zest is paramount.

We’re positive, practical, persistent and cheeky enough to challenge you to always go one better. - Lee


Lee Nieto

As founder and principal trainer at Zest Personal Training, Lee is the energy that drives the day-to-running of the studio and the big picture thinking that puts together specialist challenges, like Cradle Mountain and the Sydney City to Surf.

Lee is a fully-qualified personal trainer, registered with Fitness Australia and continually developing her professional skills through ongoing training.

She figures you can never know too much – specialist courses include Matt O’Neill’s Nutrition for Fat Loss, Donna Aston’s training and Chisholm Institute’s Outdoor Leader Specialisation.

You’ll find Lee in the Zest studio most days (and many evenings) working with clients on their customised programs, perfecting form and technique, consulting and motivating, inspiring and propelling people to achieve the best they can.

It’s serious work, but Lee is never without her beaming smile and a ready laugh to smooth over the “tough love” she’s famous for!

As a busy mum of three, Lee loves living a full life. Zest is her brainchild and where she loves to see her clients reaping rewards.

Gavin Seidel

When Gavin trains you at Zest, you benefit from his lifetime interest in sport, fitness, coaching and training.

His diverse background with local sporting clubs, including junior coaching, means Gavin has the people skills, techniques and persistence to help you reach your fitness goals – all delivered with an easy-going, unflappable approach.

Gavin’s favourite fitness disciplines are boxing and weight training.

He has completed numerous specialist courses aside from his personal training qualification, including Boxing for Fitness and Advanced Weight Lifting, and is registered with Kinect Australia (incorporating Vicfit).

Expect to see Gavin leading Zest Group Training sessions and working one-on-one, mixing it up to make sure you and your program are anything but boring.

Don’t be fooled by his nice guy style … Gavin will push you hard to get everything you can out of every session, and out of yourself.

While he loves to make training sessions fun, the buzz for him is seeing people surprise themselves with what they can achieve.

Gavin splits his time between being a Zest personal trainer, an agricultural machinery and equipment salesman, husband to Carmel and father-of-four.

It’s a cup-runneth over lifestyle that he wouldn’t have any other way.
