I started with Trish 6 months ago. I came from another gym which helped me reach my goal weight. These days I train to stay fit and target a few problem areas.
Training with Trish has seen me lose even more, which being in the 50 age bracket, I didn’t think I had it in me - I’ve lost inches!! You have a fitness question, she has the answer, and goes out of her way to explain it to you. She’s energetic and always keeps classes interesting. The group that trains there are are a great bunch, and are very friendly, doesn’t take long to fit it at all. Location is central for me, which is a bonus. And the premises are always kept spotless.
I’ve been training with Trish for three years, she is a dedicated caring person how has everyones best interests at heart. Its a great environment very social group the classes caters to all levels of fitness.
I have been training with Patricia off and on over last 5+ years. Patricia is very passionate and motivating and always makes classes interesting, never boring. Patricia is dedicated to help all clients be the best they can be and takes into account individual needs and abilities. I would recommend Patricia anytime, and always do if I see anyone asking for fitness class or personal trainer.
Patrica Christakos is the best personal trainer ever! She is the only one that has ever motivated me to stay at gym, thanks to her I have lost 12kg and am still counting. Thank you for helping me be the best version of me I could be!
AthleteStar is a safe space to work out with the support of other members to achieve your goals. No meat heads here! It’s a family! Patricia’s passion for her job and genuine care for each of us shines through in each class and has kept me coming back for close to a decade.
Patricia is experienced and dedicated to helping people of all levels improve their health and fitness, and achieve their goals. She is able to differentiate for varying needs, motivate people to push their boundaries, and make her classes enjoyable and extremely worthwhile. Her approach to health and fitness is realistic and sustainable which is evident in the small dedicated community she has created in her classes and training.
I’ve been training with Patricia for 3 years now & enjoy every minute of it. I went from 1-2 sessions a week to 5 sessions! We work hard, but only as hard as you want. As Patricia says “it’s your workout people, you get out what you put it!” And she’s right. Patricia is a great trainer very knowledgeable with all aspects of training & exercising as well as dietary requirements & she always eager to help in any way she can. We have fun & have a get a great workout at the same time. It’s a relaxed & welcoming atmosphere where I have developed many great friendships.

Patricia and the group members welcomed me with open arms and truck loads of encouragement.
The atmosphere at Athlete Star is far from ‘gym like’ and whilst we are pushed to get the best out of ourselves, we have a lot of laughs along the way. Patricia is a very passionate and honest person and I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for her.
Patricia is one amazing and inspiring trainer. She pushes you to limits that your not aware you can achieve, and when you do she pushes more. Great motivator and full of knowledge. Athletes star and the staff and group training are amazing.
I love training at Athletes Star. Lots of room, heaps of equipment, friendly likeminded people. No showponies at this gym. I have been training with Patricia for 7 years. She is really encouraging, motivating and most of all always happy and smiling. I look forward to my workouts every week.
I have known Patricia for over 6 years now, and her passion and knowledge for health, fitness and well being is second to none. Her passion shines through in every class, she pushes you to your limits, and always has your best interests at heart. The group at Athlete Star are amazing and also supportive, pushing each other through classes and even having a laugh or two. Patricia, you never disappoint! Keep up the great work, inspiring everyone that crosses your path!
Patricia is a fantastic trainer with great sense of humor so every session is filled with laugh and positive attitude which empower you to work out even harder. Very professional coaching and definitely will help you to achieve your fitness goals! I really enjoyed my few weeks training with Patrica and already seen some positive results.

What an awesome place to keep fit at Athlete Star. I’ve made such great friendships & thoroughly enjoy my workouts. Trish truly believes in getting results for you. I’ve toned & become a healthier version of myself thanks to her inspiration. I’m so glad to call her my trainer.
I have been with Patricia for 4 year and I have been doing group classes as well as PTs
She is a beautiful person inside and out and all she does is help people in their journey for weight loss and fitness or recovering from an injury while having a good time and a laugh
She motivates and pushes you to your best abilities
I recommend joining AthletesStar where Patricia and the rest of the friendly team will welcome you to the group with open arms.
I have been training with Patricia for about 6 months now & thoroughly enjoy it. Not only is she professional she truly cares about each & everyone of her clients. Patricia is the best there is, she really knows her stuff!!!
My hubby and I have been training with Patricia for almost 10 years now, and believe she is one of the most experienced & committed trainers around. We started training once a week, as part of a group session and have enjoyed the variety & challenges, that we now train close to 3 days a week!!
Trust me you will not find a more dedicated trainer than Trish.

AthleteStar is awesome! Everyone is super friendly, the Work outs are always different and I constantly notice the improvements in my strength and fitness.
The trainers are excellent and always help to push and motivate me while at the same time putting in the extra time and attention to perfect my technique. Definitely highly recommend Athlete Star!
Before I started training with Patricia my life was all over the place,I was suffering from bad depression and had no confidence in myself, her words of inspiration and dedication changed my life for good, she taught me to be mentally strong and to have faith in myself, she is truly one remarkable trainer and person, from the bottom of my heart thank you Patricia for all the amazing work you do.
I have known Patricia on a personal level for 5 years. I was feeling unhealthy and the thought of going to a gym really freaked me out so I kept making excuses. I’ll start Monday. Tuesday would come so I’d promise myself to start next Monday and so on.
The opportunity arose for me to join Patricia for a weekly PT session so I took the plunge and I wasn’t even a month in before I was going to Athlete Star 3 times a week for a combination of PT and group sessions.

COVID UPDATE: from AthleteStar 💪💪 Hey AthleteStar team, great to hear about all of you who are keeping up the fitness online. It's encouraging to see things going in the right direction, let's hope it keeps improving and we will update you if/when we can about classes resuming.
Keep positive and keep as active as you can to avoid putting on those COVID CALORIES.
Here are some healthy tips to help ❤️
✅ Swap the cakes, muffins and cookies for fruit, try some different fruits you have never tried before & make platters to mix it up and look like fun to eat
✅ If you're baking a treat, boost the fibre by adding oats to a cookie or muffin recipe and use natural yoghurt instead of cream. Add some veg like grated pumpkin or carrot to cakes or muffins. Remember baking cakes is a treat so don't indulge too much! 😜
✅ Take it easy on takeaways 🍕 We know it's tempting (and very easy) to cosy up on the couch and order some takeaway from UberEATS or Menulog. An average takeaway meal provides around 700-1000 calories, which is almost half of an adult’s average daily energy intake. Plan ahead, the day before, and have healthy options prepared & ready, so you’re not making an unhealthy decision last minute when you’re hungry. And try to limit takeaway to a maximum of once per week, choose healthier options that contain vegetables or salad and say no to up-sizing!
✅ Don’t eat out of the bag 🍿 Snack and comfort food sales are soaring as people stay at home. Eating snacks straight out of the packet is a recipe for overeating. Instead, try portioning out your snacks into a small bowl or container. Aim to swap processed, packaged snacks such as chips and biscuits for healthier options like yoghurt, nuts, fruit or popcorn.
✅ Think twice about what you’re drinking 🥤 Juice, soft drinks, flavoured milks and alcohol all contribute excess calories and if consumed regularly can contribute to those extra kilos creeping on. Make sure you’re aware of any liquid calories slipping into your diet and instead swap to water, soda water, tea or black coffee.
✅ Keep active 💪 Aim to prioritise movement – schedule it in as a necessary part of your day and find activities that you enjoy. Exercise is essential for good mental health, as well as keeping those extra kilos off!
