We love what we do 💚
My name is Jack (that’s me on the left) and I’m a Melbourne born and raised Personal Trainer with a large amount of passion, knowledge and experience in the fitness industry.
I thoroughly enjoy working out of The Woodshed where each day I assist my amazing clients to easily and efficiently move their bodies in ways that makes them healthier, more balanced and optimises their performance.
The Woodshed is a great space that caters for regular Mums and Dads, athletes, young kids, elderly clients and everyone in between.
Clients of mine who have children love to make use of the FREE child minding we offer Monday to Friday between 8:30am – 10:30am.
In my sessions you will learn how to move well, with good posture, alignment and technique. You will be guided towards an effective way of staying in shape over a long period of time.
I have extensive experience in pre, peri and post natal clients as well as rehabilitation from injuries, such as ACL, lower back and shoulder. I work closely with your doctor or therapist to manage any specific concerns or imbalances that you may be experiencing.
Outside of the gym, I enjoy spending time with family, playing basketball, being in the ocean and travelling.

My name is Ash Bedford and I’m a Fitness Professional with over 10 years experience. I created Zazen Fitness to provide exceptional services to those who feel overwhelmed by exercise and confused about how to manage their wellbeing. I’m now based in Ballarat where I am taking on new Personal Training clients. I lived and worked in Melbourne for 10 years before moving back home to Ballarat in April 2019. My current role is to help manage and support our trainers to be the best they can be though mentorship and guidance. I am available for consultation regarding fitness, nutrition and well-being, so please send me an email if you’d like to have a chat.
My philosophy is to make exercise enjoyable, teach people how to master the basics, learn to breathe correctly and efficiently and teach people what good posture is and what that feels like.
The outcomes I have seen from my clients in the last decade are an enormous increase in vitality, wellbeing, strength and balance with a decrease in physical aches and pain as well as improved mental health capacity and mental clarity.
I find my work extremely rewarding and am extremely passionate about all things fitness, health and wellbeing.
When I am not at work I enjoy getting outside in nature and spending time with my family, I have 2 young kids and a beautiful wife. We live on a small permaculture farm just outside of Ballarat, where I grow a large amount of organic produce, which feeds my family. I love getting down the surf coast when I can to get a few waves, and simply spending time caring for my garden. In between all of this, when time permits, I love being social and catching up for coffee with like minded people, partaking in regular volunteer work in the community, lots of reading and setting some time aside for yoga and meditation.

This offer is just what you need to regain control over your fitness, health and well-being. When we meet you’ll be given an opportunity to be heard. It’s your chance to let us know exactly how you feel and what you’d like to change.
This is a powerful place to start. From here we will introduce you to our studio, The Woodshed, and take you through a brief introductory workout so we can further assess your needs. The remaining 2 sessions (30 minutes or book them back to back for a 1 hour session) are your chance to get to know us and start building the foundations. There will be plenty of time to answer any questions that you may have and we will provide our recommendations about training going forward, keeping in mind your schedule, budget and current fitness levels to determine whether it’s the right fit for you.
We encourage you to use these sessions within 2 weeks of starting to get the most out of this offer.
