Hi there, I’m David Bowman, the head trainer and owner at RefreshYOU Lindfield and RefreshYOU Turramurra.

10 years ago, I decided to escape the corporate world and for me the burning question was, what could I do that was going to provide meaningful, rewarding work.

Personally, I’d had some success with weight loss and fitness improvement, having started walking and then jogging in my mid 40’s. What I quickly realised was that, even as an older person, it was possible to train safely and get fit from a very low fitness base. I also became aware of how awesome it was to feel and look healthy again.

So, I made the decision to become a qualified personal trainer and set up my own business. My goal was and remains to help people of all ages and fitness levels achieve their health and fitness goals.

Having conducted around 7000 classes, what continues to inspire me is the number of fantastic people who’ve joined our wonderful fitness community, the varied backgrounds they come from, the different challenges they’ve faced and overcome, and the many ways I’ve been able to help them improve their physical and mental health outcomes through tailoring fitness programs to help them achieve their fitness and health goals.

We’d love you to try us free for 7 days. Call David on 0408 647 690 to book or find out more.

    After a long break from exercising after having 3 kids I started exercising again in the Spring of 2019. I found all the classes interesting and varied, the instructors helpful and encouraging and the other people in the groups fun and interesting to exercise with. Plus I loved exercising outdoors. I would 100% recommend Refresh you if you want to improved your fitness and be healthy.

    David Bowman, the owner of the Lindfield and Turramurra Refresh You, is terrific. He is smart, thoughtful, and willing to adapt any lesson to suit one’s level of fitness. (BTW: You know how some people ask if you would consider a review, and you may think, ‘ew no’. Well, this request was met with an enthusiastic, ‘yes, I would love to do that’). I’ve been attending David’s outdoor classes for quite a few years, and David would have reason to be mean about my spotty attendance (work is busy) but instead he always suggests ways to keep going despite that or how to modify exercises. I’ve also enjoyed my Monday morning exercise group friends. We probably talk too much at times, but it is lovely being outdoors under the sharp eyes of the kookaburras.

    I’ve been training with David and the team for a number of years now. It started with one class and then another to the point where I organise my work schedule around attending training.
    The mantra of train at your own pace is true, and my kids have been welcomed to sessions either to play in the background or as they’ve grown up to join in.
    More recently the transformation to virtual training has been life changing – David’s skill as a PT has shone through adapting to great sessions you can do from home that are just as tough as the face to face ones. I’m training more now than ever.
    I’d recommend Refresh You to anyone – for David and his team, but also for the great bunch of people who I train with each week, it’s why outdoor training is 100 x better than a gym any day.

    I have found RefreshYou to be a great fitness program and everyone I’ve met (trainers and clientele) are lovely. The programs offer a lot of variety (which keeps things interesting and fun) and being able to scale the level of the workout to suit my fitness needs.
    David suggests exercise routines that are individualized and challenging, but not more than you can handle. He is extremely reliable and punctual – always set up and ready to start training ahead of time.
    I thoroughly enjoy working out in the outdoor environment, and would recommend David and his team to anyone looking to improve their fitness.

    I broke up with the gym and joined David’s outdoor fitness classes over five years ago now and I haven’t looked back. David is always supportive and takes a practical approach to fitting fitness into the juggle of life. He creates a great atmosphere and we all look forward to his classes. It’s part of the fabric of our lives now and hard to imagine not having it. And we love being outdoors!

    I’ve been part of the RefreshYOU gang for a year now and thoroughly enjoy the training sessions with wonderful trainers and other friendly clients.
    The trainers cater for all needs and levels in sessions, and are mindful of any injuries/good form to mitigate injury.

    I have been training with David for more than 5 years now. Not only is he a great trainer, he cares about all of us and has built a great community. I’ve made a great group of friends thanks to David and I’m keeping fit and mentally and physically strong at the same time. Win win!

    David is a fantastic trainer who really takes the time to get to know your strengths and weaknesses. His classes are always positive, challenging, and quite social too. The community within Refresh You is so supportive, it’s always lovely attending classes and seeing people who are now your friends. I’ve been training under David’s guidance since 2016 and highly recommend giving RefreshYOU a go.
