Ash Bedford (Head Trainer)

My name is Ash Bedford and I’m a Melbourne born and raised Personal Trainer with over 10 years experience. Currently operating at The Woodshed in Brighton East, I enjoy helping people in the local area move their bodies in ways that are safe, easy and effective for optimal health, fitness and wellbeing. Exercise is a powerful healer and when performed in a balanced way has the power to change your life for the better. My philosophy is to help clients master the basics and build the foundations for a lifetime of good health. Longevity, core strength, posture, flexibility and long-term sustainable weight loss are just some of the outcomes you can expect to see and feel from trusting me and my team with your personal training needs. We also specialise in pre, peri and post natal exercise, we have the ability to work with any injuries, communicating closely with your doctors, physio’s, chiro’s etc. and we offer FREE child minding Monday to Friday between 8:30am – 10:30am.

When I am not at work I enjoy getting outside and spending time with my family, I have a 3 year old boy Noah and a beautiful wife, Ellie. We enjoy having delicious and healthy, home cooked meals, seeking out Melbourne’s best cafe’s and exploring new parks and places. I also enjoy my surfing down the coast, practicing yoga and meditation, reading and anything that involves nature.

Jack Hancock (Senior Trainer)

Jack has been in the fitness industry for over 6 years. In that time he has accrued a wealth of knowledge, working with a variety of clients. 

Jack approaches training holistically, meaning there is a method behind each and every exercise. Each person is an individual, and not everyones needs can be met with 1 program. Attention to detail and the ability to adapt are two of Jack’s main focuses in creating programs, delivering programs & helping clients achieve their goals.

Completing his university degree has allowed Jack to develop valuable knowledge of the human body and extrinsic factors in training. Having an in-depth understanding of human anatomy and physiology gives him the tools to practically apply knowledge to help you function better.

Outside of the gym, Jack enjoys spending time with family, playing basketball, being in the ocean and travelling.

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.

"I' trained with Ash 2-3 times per week for approximately 4 years, before he moved to another studio. Our sessions were always positive and extremely well organised. Ash is very much a body and mind trainer, always injecting some positive psychology into the sessions. There was a blurring of personal trainer and life coach in Ash’s approach to training, which I have really enjoyed over the years. As my body has aged with time Ash has adapted my training to be lower impact and more sensible to my needs. As a result I have never sustained injury under his direction. Thanks Ash for being a great trainer and great mate along this journey."
Paul Sitzler
"Since training with Ash twice a week, my overall strength has significantly improved! Our sessions are always varied so I never know what to expect and I don’t get bored. Ash is always mindful of my abilities, however each session brings something challenging! He is also mindful of my wellbeing and tailors each session accordingly. I would highly recommend Ash’s services, especially if you’re looking for a kick start and motivation….he’s sincere but has a cheeky sense of humour which I like! I leave each session feeling upbeat and positive! I now supplement my training with aquatic exercise and pilates, and compared to a few months ago, have more energy and self-awareness."
Helen Johansen
"I sought Ash’s guidance to help me build a base of strength and flexibility that would allow me to enjoy time with my son and ease the discomfort of lower back pain.

What amazes me about my training with Ash is, that at some point, normally around 10 – 12 min in, I feel totally uplifted and joyful.

Ash’s knowledge and passion for physiology are second to none. As a result I feel very supported by his direction.

Ash has helped me to gain more focus with my training and this has spilled over into other areas of my life. Totally enjoyable."
Marcus Lethlean
"I have been training with Ash for a number of years now and I really enjoy it. I love the flexibility that Ash provides in our training sessions. His ability to go with the flow and to spin on a dime. I love it when I need a session that is a bit more restorative, instead of intensive, he is able to adjust the way he sees the session running. He pays close attention to form and technique. As a chiropractor, someone who is interested in form and wellbeing assurance, I love Ash’s approach when paying attention to the finer details of the person in the training session, not just the session with a client."
