I'll PERSONALLY Give You All the Nutrition, Training, Lifestyle, and Mindset Secrets to Finally Obtain and Maintain Your Health and Fitness Goals
That was me in March 2014… (wasn't feeling too happy)...

The personal trainer that looked like she needed a personal trainer herself.

I suffered from low energy levels…

Felt irritable and uncomfortable in my own skin…

Experienced “imposter syndrome…”

And was even known as the “fat coach.”

It made me feel hopeless and defeated…

And it made me doubt myself wherever I went.
I had hit total rock bottom.

Worse yet, at that time, my family and I heard that my dad had motor neuron disease.

Aside from the fact that I was frightened to lose him… 

He had never seen me compete.

I knew if I didn’t get in shape rapidly, he wouldn’t be able to make it to Melbourne to see me on stage.

I wanted him to see that part of my life…

I knew I had to stop “white-knuckling” and get my shit together FAST. 

The problem?

While I knew how to eat and train for fantastic results…

(Mind you, I had been helping people transform their physique for 26 years at that point…)

I couldn’t implement it myself.

I didn’t have an issue staying on track with my diet most of the time…

But when negative emotions reared their ugly head, I would undo all my dieting efforts by going for an all-out binge.

That’s right, I suffered from…

There is no doubt in my mind that the single most important reason many people are overweight is because of overeating…

And a large chunk of that is due to emotional eating…

Meaning they use food to cope with emotions like stress, overwhelm, sadness, loneliness, frustration, and boredom.

This is especially common among females, although it also affects men.

I KNEW this was my problem…

But how would I overcome it?

I did it in the way I always approach things when I have a burning desire to accomplish something.

I became OBSESSED with it.

I absorbed all the information I could find on emotional eating...

Spoke to leading experts in the field…

Read dozens upon dozens of scientific studies on the topic…

And did countless self-experiments to figure out what works and what doesn’t.

The result?

I developed a simple but powerful system that helped me FINALLY conquer emotional eating.

This led me to go from 84 kilos and 42% body fat to 78 kilos and 14% body fat... 

Propelling me to win both state and national physique titles.

⚠️ But be warned! These immersive one-on-one Reinvent Yourself Staycation Days will revolutionise you from the inside out. You will NOT return home the same person!
Best of all?

My dad was able to see me on stage and CRUSH IT!

(You should’ve seen the proudness on his face.)

Here’s a photo of us on stage after winning the NABBA Victorian State Titles:
Looking at this photo still brings tears to my eyes…

And a couple are rolling over my cheeks right now while I’m writing this to you.

(Gosh, I’m a softie.)

Now, while most people think such results are not achievable for them…

The truth is, I'm NOT blessed with fantastic genes.

I had to work hard, differently, and smart to reach my fitness goals.

I know what it’s like to be stuck in a rut...

To have NO clue if you're training and dieting correctly…

To take many “before” photos without ever reaching the desired “after” ones…

To almost resign yourself to being fat and overweight…

And to have about every other problem most people grapple with.

Fortunately, there is hope.

In fact, when I started to use my “cure emotional eating” blueprint with clients…

The results were PHENOMENAL!

A case in point, Yvonne Mayzilis lost 31 kilos and 23% body fat at age 60.

Mary Ciuffetelli from Geelong lost 17 kilos in four months and felt comfortable enough in her own body to wear shorts for the first time in 28 years!
Peter Kichakov from Geelong lost 60 kilos in 36 weeks and 13 inches from his waistline:
Matt Fizley from Drysdale lost 18 kilos in 16 weeks while gaining pounds of muscle:
Simone lost 25 kilos and 22% body fat in 12 months while reversing all her medical problems and beating a brain tumour:
Here’s what she said about the experience:
“Ingrid saved my life. She saved me from myself. Now she is as integral to my life as brushing my teeth. Words cannot possibly articulate how instrumental she has been. Since working with her I have: 

  • gone from morbidly obese to normal, healthy weight 
  • gotten off bp, cholesterol and heart medication 
  • stopped justifying all of my excuses 
  • kept a gratitude diary 
  • stopped completely all emotional eating 
  • survived and left an abusive relationship 
  • competed in four powerlifting comps winning a National Record 

“And I am far from done. Everyone should have Ingrid in their corner. She isn’t just a “strength coach”. She is a life coach, and truly outstanding. 

“Don’t even deliberate if you are considering her as your coach. Call me if you want and I will tell you more (0448899173). Or just sign up. You will not regret it.”

Pretty impressive, huh?

The only question is…
Will You Be Next?

Today, I’d like to use the experiences and countless hours of studying I’ve undergone to help you achieve your goals…

Whether that is losing fat…

Building muscle…

Getting stronger…

Feeling more comfortable in your own skin…

Preparing for a bodybuilding or powerlifting contest…

Increasing your confidence and resilience…

Becoming an impactful, bankable and more successful PT…

Or improving your general health and well-being and feeling more energised.

No matter your goal, I can help you achieve it.


You should be!

Coaches and trainers are a dime a dozen…

And while most of them have their heart in the right place…

The truth is that most trainers suck.

Fortunately, the proof is in the pudding.

While you’ve already seen some of the amazing transformations my clients have undergone…

Here are a couple more to show you’re in good hands:

Rachel Dorans from Geelong lost 20 kilos in 12 weeks and a whopping 20% body fat:

Miss Universe Super body Winner Renata Stojanovski weighed 12 kilos heavier in 2016 (right photo) and was 5% leaner than in 2009 (left photo):
Kerry Holmes, a deaf mother of seven kids with bursitis, a frozen shoulder, and recovering from cancer wanted to compete… and so she did!
Four coaches rejected Kerry.

They didn’t want to work with her due to the complicated situation.

But together we made her dream come true!

“Ingrid Is a Powerful Asset to Anyone at Any Level and She Is Full of Heart and Passion”

“I used to wonder how some women on social media could lift so heavy, I wanted that combo of lean and strong so Ingrid showed me the way.

“Ingrid and Recomposer took my strength to another level.

“I ate all the foods I loved, including lots of white potatoes. I never felt hungry. I consistently got stronger and it improved my body composition. It was absolutely brilliant.

“My knowledge has grown from Ingrid’s leadership. She makes lifting fun, achievable, and ever-challenging, and it’s great to explore varied program styles and combinations.

“She can make you strong inside and out, and she gets you so excited about what you can achieve.

“I always devoted myself fully to her ideas and learned so much about myself in the process.

“Ingrid is a powerful asset to anyone at any level and she is full of heart and passion.

“Ingrid’s guidance and support have enriched my life in so many ways and I’m forever grateful for everything she has done for me.”

– Leanne Glowery, Swan Hill

“You Are a Fantastic Coach, Mentor, and Friend”

“I want you to know how grateful I am to have found you, Ingrid.

“This year has been simply amazing for me, learning so much about nutrition, my body, and making the comp prep process truly an enjoyable and exciting one.

“I have gradually worked towards competing again with so much motivation, drive, and happiness.

“The support, guidance, and expertise you have shown me have blown me away. Not once have I doubted my decision to be part of Team BC or to compete.

“Even though I've only had a few months to prepare, I have reached my goal- to be fitter, stronger, and all-round healthier than last year.

“I KNOW I will be able to see a huge improvement in these comps to last year, and that is what I aimed for.

“I have had a few moments where I've needed to keep my head straight, mainly training around an injury and mainly being patient with myself and reminding myself I'm doing my best.

“You are a fantastic coach, mentor, and friend. I am thrilled to represent team BC in the next few weeks and I hope I make you proud!”

“Thank you for everything Ingrid.”

– Jen Carrington, Cairns

“I Have Learned a Lot From Ingrid.
Her Knowledge Is Amazing and She Inspires Me”

“I signed up to Ingrid Barclay to get healthier as I was just put on cholesterol tablets and I wanted to lose weight.

“For the first time in my life I had skin folds taken. I was really nervous about getting my skin folds at the end of week 1 but I was so excited to have a really good loss of 17 mls.

“I changed my diet. I eat protein at each meal and I increased my vegetable intake. I started doing a beginners program. It was three weight sessions a week.

“I didn't do any cardio. I continued to lose skin folds every week. I have lost a total of 100.1 mls of body fat in 16 weeks. I'm SO excited about that.

“My cholesterol has come down. I have arthritis and a tear in the meniscus in my right knee. I was given the option of having surgery. I chose not to have it. I'm happy that my knee has been a lot better since training under Ingrid.

“I have got new goals to continue my weight loss and do a push/pull powerlifting comp. I have learned a lot from Ingrid. Her knowledge is amazing and she inspires me.”

– Jacinta Spadon, Corio

Introducing: My Reinvent Yourself Staycation

When you have over 8,000 client transformations under your belt... 

You'll get a LOT of data on what works and what doesn't.

But that data isn't the big discovery. 

The big discovery is how I ultimately cracked the code on turning out-of-shape people into fit and eye-catching figures... over and over again.

Now, here's what's really amazing: 

Even though the process is fairly simple... 

And even though I've used it to train two Miss Universe winners and dozens of bodybuilding and powerlifting champions... 

The fact remains that you and I have an incredible advantage because…
These Jam-Packed Staycations Last Two, 
Three, Four, or Five Days Depending on the Package 
You Choose and Will Be All About YOU

Some things you’ll do are:

  • be educated on everything relevant to achieving your desired outcome. (And when I say everything, I mean EVERYTHING… ranging from nutrition to exercise to sleep to lifestyle to supplementation to mindset and everything in between).

  • break bad habits and routines. (While the step-by-step formula I use for this might be somewhat controversial, it’s incredibly effective).

  • have fun. (You won't be bored for a single minute... and if we have the time for it, I’ll even show you the most beautiful scenery you can find in Geelong).

  • propel your confidence through the roof. (You’ll feel better in your own skin and more confident that you can achieve your health and fitness goals… and, just as important, maintain them).

  • and much more!

This Experience Will be 100% Customised to YOU and YOUR Situation, Goals, Needs, and Preferences
I'll tailor everything to what is ideal for YOU.
To do so, we’ll first jump on a call to go through your situation…

And cover things like where you’re currently at, what you’ve already done, and what you want to accomplish (but I'm also going to teach you 3 things)

Then, once we have these “raw materials” in place…

We’ll come up with the best schedule for your exclusive staycation.

For this, you can choose from fourteen options…

And you can select as many of them as you like.

During the free consulting session, I can help you decide which options are best for you…

Based on your situation, needs, budget, time schedule, and preferences…

But before we do that, let me give you an overview of the available options.
And no matter how lost you might feel after trying and abandoning many workout and diet routines, personal trainers, coaches, and other strategies…


You CAN have that lean, strong, and sexy figure of your dreams…

And that's why I'm excited to talk to you about the following:

Hardly Anyone is Using it!

And the reason for that is simple: 

I've never shared it all publicly… 

…until today!

Now, I'm willing to hand you the exact "blueprint" for your health and fitness success... 

And I'm willing to do that together with you one-on-one here in Geelong, Australia. 

That’s right…

I’ve set aside some time to provide you with an exclusive staycation where I “spill the beans.”
No Matter How Genetically "Cursed"
You Might Think You Are...

Time Required: 2 Hours

This is mandatory because to help you I’d first need to understand your situation.

That’s why we’ll cover things like:

  • filling out a Health and Medical Pro Forma Questionnaire.

  • measuring your body fat percentage and lean body mass with a nine-site skinfold caliper test. (This will show us how much time you’ll need to achieve the physique you want).

  • examining your body shape, which includes feedback on flaws in symmetry and how to train to improve it (if desired).

  • taking “before” photos, which we’ll do in front of a white screen with a quality camera. You’ll receive them via email as a reference for your journey.

  • discussing your goals. For this, we’ll use my unconventional but powerful and science-based goal-setting formula.

  • breaking down your goals into timelines so you know what to expect and how to track your progress. 

  • dialoguing on how to stay accountable and not “fall off the wagon.”

Plus, you’ll get a 100% customised workout program.

This program is tailored to what is optimal for YOU…

Based on YOUR situation, goals, needs, and preferences…

So that you can progress in the fastest, healthiest, and most efficient way.
Option 2: Program Technique Session

(Highly Recommended, even if you’re an experienced trainee). 

Time required: 1.5 hours

This is our opportunity to go through every prescribed exercise.

You’ll learn everything you need to know to maximise the benefits of every exercise while avoiding injuries.

If you think you already do every exercise with proper form, you’ll be in for a surprise.

I rarely, if ever, see anyone do a single exercise I cannot improve…

Even if it’s just a “simple” standing barbell curl…

Let alone a lat pulldown where 99% of people rely on their arms instead of their lats.

This will be an enlightening 90 minutes…

And you’ll be most thankful you opted to do this…

Because the tips, tricks, and cues you’ll learn will help you get the most out of your workouts for years or even decades to come.

Option 3: Nutrition Education & Creating an Individualised Nutrition Plan

Time required: 2 Hours

First, we’ll do a metabolic classification quiz to assess the current state of your metabolism.

We’ll discuss what you’ve tried thus far… 

Whether you have food sensitivities and proclivities…

The foods you have access to…

What you enjoy eating…

And what foods will ensure you reach your goals.

It won’t matter if you’re a vegan, vegetarian, octovarian, or otherwise…

Because there are many ways to get lean, and we’ll find the one that suits you.

Nor will it matter if you are:

  • The Thinker (you tend to overthink, which leads to stress and mood swings and can derail your eating patterns).

  • The Craver (your heightened experiences of cravings can lead to overeating in a variety of ‘tricky’ situations).

  • The Foodie (food is on your mind 24/7, and you love making, eating, and experiencing it).

  • The Socialiser (flexibility is essential for you, and you won’t let firm food restrictions stifle your social life).

  • The Freewheeler (you’re spontaneous and impulsive and tend to make choices in the here-and-now).

I’m not a one-trick pony and won’t treat you as such. 

You are a very rare snowflake 😊😊

And it won’t matter what food issues and health problems you may have.

Furthermore, we’ll devise a backup plan because I believe there is always a plan B!

I’ll teach you some of my “secrets” only clients get access to…

We’ll create an approach you feel is doable and right for you…

We’ll work out what, when, and how much you need to eat daily to achieve your goals…

And we’ll perform a quiz before you leave to ensure you understand the information…

Meaning you’ll be able to use it for the rest of your life.

For this quiz, we’ll first go through each chapter of the Reinvent Yourself program…

And then run through key questions and answers to ensure you understand it all.

While the quiz is informal, we’ll JAM-PACK this staycation with valuable information…

So that you return home feeling nutritionally savvy. 

No longer will you experience guesswork or suffer from mental gymnastics.
Option 4: Pinnacle Exercise Technique Session

Time required: 1 hour

The squat, bench press, and deadlift are staple exercises in most effective workout programs…

And that’s for good reasons.

But there’s one problem:

Most people don’t perform the exercises well at all (thinking they do)!

That increases their risk of injury while blunting the results they get from the movements.

It’s time to change this.

In this hour, you can choose from the bench press, squat, or deadlift…

And I’ll help you become a superstar in that lift.

Whether it's your first time doing the exercise or you've been performing it for years…

We’ll take it to the next level.

You'll walk away from this technique session feeling far more confident with the bar…

So that you can set yourself up for amazing personal bests in the gym (and the platform if you wish!).
Option 5: Pinnacle Exercise Technique Session 2

Time required: 1 hour

If you’d like to do another technique session to work on another exercise…

You’re more than welcome to do so…

Whether that’s for the squat, bench press, or deadlift.

I can almost guarantee that over this weekend, you’ll set new personal bests in each of the three key lifts.
Option 6: Two Body Part Training Session

Time required: 1 Hour

Now let's see how you handle an actual workout…

By going through one of the sessions included in your exercise routine.

I have never met someone who is not undertraining, as in, they are not training as hard as they can and should.

Let me show you what you are capable of…

And let's lift the bar in a way you'll feel confident doing so long after you’ve left the staycation.

I guarantee we’ll take your training to a level you never thought possible.
Option 7: Different Two Body Part Training Session:

Time required: 1 hour

The same as Option 6 but for two different body parts.

Option 8: ICE (Intense Cardio Exercise) practical session:

Option 9: End Emotional Eating Course

Time required: 25 minutes max

Let me let you in on a little “secret” (if you can even call it that):

If you're a sports model, figure girl, or someone who just wishes to get lean…

You do NOT want nor need to spend hours toiling away on the treadmill to "burn fat." 

It’s pointless, and there is a much better way.

That better way is called ICE (intense cardio exercise).

I'll teach you what ICE is all about and how you can use it most effectively.

Plus, we'll do an ICE session you’ve NEVER done before. 

Even though such a workout is powerful for fat loss, I must warn you… this is NOT for the faint of heart.

The session will only take about 18 to 20 minutes…

But you'll be gasping for air, your muscles will be shaking, and it'll be one of the most brutal workouts you've ever done.

That said, it'll be worth it.
Time required: 3 hours

Let me ask you a question:

Do you catch yourself using any of these “battle” tactics in your fight with food & weight?

  • The Crap Attack: Secretly treating yourself to foods you pretend don’t veer you off the rails

  • The Strategic Retreat: Eating to avoid confronting and uncomfortable feelings

  • The Trojan Horse: Eating food that makes you happy, but ending up feeling guilt and stress

  • The Stinking Thinking: It’s all or nothing – one mistake starts a downward spiral. Magically hoping for the one ‘right’ diet, fast, cleanse, challenge, or pill to fix everything

And are any of the following “emotional enemies” waging a daily war with your food and eating choices? 

  • iShould & Shouldn’t: Mental tyrants making every food choice and meal a mental battle 

  • Blame & Shame: A thought-prison of feeling weak, lazy, or broken 

  • Hunger & Craving: A nutrient famine driving hormones to overpower your sound intentions 

  • Crazy Chemical Soup: A negative gang of emotions such as anger, sadness, frustration that only food seems to soothe 

  • Rules & Rebels Rigid rules rob you of freedom, so you eat to defy them and say f&^k you!

If you answered yes to one or more of them, you likely suffer from emotional eating…

Which is problematic because your emotional relationship with food will likely be the difference between success or failure on your fitness journey.

We each have a complex set of beliefs and emotional connections to food as unique as our fingerprints.

And to develop a relationship with food that keeps you healthy and fit…

You must understand those beliefs and connections and how you use food outside of your physical needs…

Because the truth is, in today's society, we use food for many reasons outside of energy needs and building material. 

We use food as the centrepiece of social gatherings…

We use it for comfort, to get good feelings, and to cope with bad ones…

And for some people, food is the central focus of their lives.

There's no denying food can be one of life's great pleasures…

And to deny ourselves of the experience’s food can provide is counterproductive in the long term.

That's why it's essential to avoid "all or none thinking" like "I'm either completely on or completely off my diet."

We need to allow ourselves enough lenience for our favourite foods so that we won’t feel deprived…

But also demand enough compliance to constructive eating to ensure we reach our health and fitness goals.

That's what you'll learn to do in the "End Emotional Eating" course.

We'll cover things like how to:
  • find the hidden factors that sabotage your nutrition plan… and what you can do about them. 

  • use belief power instead of willpower to transform your body and create a healthy relationship with food.

  • use the AWARE principles, which are five powerful steps to overcome emotional eating.

  • identify limiting beliefs and replace them with new, more constructive ones. 

  • optimise your social inventory (you are who you surround yourself with). 

  • distinguish between physical hunger and emotional hunger (most people get this wrong) ... and what you should do with it. 

  • combat negativity and avoid succumbing to peer-group pressures.

  • And much more!

As a result, you’ll learn to:
  • identify your self-concept and know what it is

  • understand how your self-concept affects your behaviour

  • identify triggers both in and out of your control

  • combat the triggers that lead you to binge

  • replace old habits with new ones

  • identify core beliefs about food… and replace them if necessary

  • recognise your roadblocks

  • undergo a social inventory

  • have a plan of attack and positive statements you can use in stressful situations

  • create a new 'self-belief' system

  • use tools and strategies that can end emotional eating forever

  • develop and complete your "Picture Card" – the most important piece of this process!

The result?

You’ll start to be in control of your food intake instead of the other way around…

Which means you'll be less prone to emotional eating…

Leading to superior health and fitness results.

Option 1: Getting to Know You (Mandatory)

Option 10: Core Session

Time required: 1 Hour

Strength athletes and trainees who want to get strong and aesthetic don’t do sit-ups and crunches. True story. None. They wouldn't.


Because your core is best trained with movements where it works as a stabiliser instead of a mover.

So, instead of spending time on dynamic ab exercises such as crunches, sit-ups, and leg raises…

It’s far superior to use options like farmer walks, suitcase carries, and the pallof press…

Which are excellent movements because they teach proper core stiffness.

After going through this masterclass, you’ll know EVERYTHING you need to know about core training…

And how you can use it for your workout programs moving forward.

Learning this information will not only help your midsection look more aesthetic…

But it’ll also benefit your strength and reduce the risk of lower back pain and injuries.
Option 11: PT Business Mentoring

If you're a personal trainer and want to take your business to the next level... 

Or if you're thinking about starting as a PT... (and worrying about...everything)!

This masterclass is for you!

I’ll teach you EVERYTHING I wish I knew when I started my PT career 37years ago…

Including my #1 key to success in this industry. (This allows me to enjoy an excellent quality of life).

You'll also get an in-depth but easy-to-digest manual that covers all the six major success tools…

And we will work through them together, one-on-one.

This manual includes three bonus sections that can lift your business to the next level…

No matter if you’re starting from scratch or are a PT veteran with hundreds of clients under your belt.

This is your chance to learn from my many mistakes so that you don’t have to make them yourself…

Which will save you a lot of time, money, and, at times, embarrassment.

(I’ll tell you about my most embarrassing PT experience if you promise not to laugh too hard at me 😅.) 
Option 12: Creating a Cover Letter and CV and Practising the Interview

Okay, okay…

I’ll tell you about my little covert "side hustle" 

Over the last decade, I’ve not only helped people achieve their health and fitness goals…

But I also helped clients land their dream job by writing their CVs and improving their interview skills.

It started as a result of helping a PT client that was looking for a new career.

Given the fast and excellent results we achieved, I went on to help more people with this.

I’ve since created many CVs for clients…

And while I haven’t tracked my “hit rate…”

Virtually all of them almost immediately secured interviews, and nine out of ten landed the job they were seeking.

So, if you’re looking for a new job, I’d love to help you out.

I’ll significantly improve your current CV or write it from scratch…

And I can do this regardless of the industry you’re in…

Although my main expertise is in the health and fitness world.

Here’s what others have said about this service:
“I Am Delighted to Tell You, I Got the Job!”

"Thank you, Ingrid. This couldn't have come at a better time.

“I am delighted to tell you, I got the job!

“You did a great job.

“Thank you so much.”

– Julie Meikle, Geelong

“You Drew Out My Skills and Attributes Expertly”

"Ingrid, thank you for your amazing CV and cover letter.

“You drew out my skills and attributes expertly.

“I became quite emotional when I read the cover letter.

“I had almost forgotten all the skills I have, after being out of the workforce since having my son.

“It actually gave me a real boost of confidence."

– Belle Connor, Geelong
“Ingrid Improved My CV and Cover Letter by 100%”

“Ingrid improved my CV and Cover letter by 100%.

“Both professional and highly skilled, she re-wrote them exactly how I wanted them to read.”

– Tracy Goddard, Melbourne

"I wanted a change of career and employed Ingrid to re-write my CV and cover letter.

“I applied for a job as a dental technician, my first application post Ingrid.

“I landed an apprenticeship with a local family-run business.

“I highly recommend Ingrid for doing incredible cover letters."

– Brett Woodcock, Lara

“I Landed an Apprenticeship With A Local Family-Run Business”

Option 14: Hiking in the You Yang’s 
Time required: 1 Hour

If you feel like exploring the most beautiful scenery in Geelong…
We can do an hour hike up the You Yang’s to see the spectacular view from the top. 
This hike is only for the reasonably fit…

And you’ll need to bring a small bag with a camera, water, sunscreen, and a cap. 
The trek is steep and hilly and will get your heart pounding.
But reaching the top is well worth the climb.
Besides, You Have the Opportunity to Get the 
Best Massage Experience You’ve Ever Had

A bold claim?


But let me explain.

The Reinvent Yourself staycation is NOT a cakewalk.

The days are going to be fast-moving…

And you’ll receive A LOT of value and new information.

That’s why, at the end of the day, I’ll have a special treat for you…

The most rejuvenating massage experience you’ve ever had.

This will not only help you get rid of tension and worries…

Which will make you sleep like a baby at night…

But it’ll also help you recover faster from your workouts and reduce soreness…

So that you can tackle the next day with utmost vigour and enthusiasm.

Now, you might be wondering…

“Ingrid, I didn’t know you gave massages. Aren’t you a coach?”

Well, here’s the deal:

I’ve always LOVED massages my entire life…

And since massages boost athletic performance and recovery from workouts…

I completed a Diploma of Remedial Massage at Victoria University.

I learned from Hailey Kelson, who is one of the – if not the – best masseur in the country…

And now, I’d like to use that knowledge and experience to pamper you with one of two types of massages…

A relaxation massage that is soothing and tranquil…

Or a more rigorous massage that’ll benefit your performance and flexibility, improve blood flow, and boost recovery.

Best of all?

Regardless of the type of massage you prefer…

I use Young Living Essential Oils, which is the gold standard for massage oils. 

Many masseurs use cheap and synthetic oils to save a couple of bucks.

Not me!

While the oils I use cost me an arm and a leg…

I see top-quality oil as imperative to the relaxation of a therapeutic massage.

That’s why I’ll let the essential oils take you on a sensory journey that creates a calming and balancing atmosphere within seconds.

Whether it’s a single, potent oil that elevates your spirit…

Or a blended formula with a specific use case, such as enhancing mental clarity…

I will cater it to your unique needs.

Also, I’ll let you try a bottle of my favourite mix, NingXia Red…
A blend of superfruit juices and pure Orange, Yuzu, Lemon, and Tangerine essential oils.

This powerful juice concentrate also includes wolfberry, blueberry, aronia, cherry, pomegranate, and plum….

And it energises, fortifies, and revitalises the body from head to toe.
But Wait, There’s More! You’ll Also Get the Following Bonuses

FREE BONUS #1: Four Fully Customised Workout Programs 

I’ll provide you with not one, not two, not three… but FOUR fully optimised training programs…

Which will help you progress towards your health and fitness goals in the most efficient manner.

Each workout program will build upon the previous one and is 100% custom-tailored towards what’s best for YOU…

Because I’ll know how your body moves and where your weak links are…

And because copying programs from the Internet will lead to vastly inferior results and often even issues like injuries.

That’s right…

You’ll get your next four fully optimised training blocks upon leaving our staycation… for FREE!

This means no second guessing “what now...?” 

Instead, I’ll keep ramping up your training to continue your progress…

Based on YOUR movement patterns, physiology, gym restraints, goals, preferences, and time schedule.

I’ll use the exact 4-step training principles I used in my comeback to stage in 2015 but base them on YOUR needs analysis.

These programs will include one 12-week block, two eight-week blocks, and a three-week block…

Each targeting slightly different goals and aerobic/anaerobic systems.

Every training block will have detailed program notes so you’ll know everything you need to know…

Ranging from what we are trying to achieve to how long to rest between sets and everything in between.
FREE BONUS #2: Aftercare

“Good sex isn’t finished without hugging and aftercare. Women instinctively know this. Even though you are now fit, fabulous and fierce, fitness is no different. The ending matters!”
– Ingrid Barclay

That’s why you’ll get:

  • 6 weeks’ worth of email check-ins post staycation. This involves sending my "Stress and Wellness Recovery Chart" every Sunday for feedback... plus answering any follow-up questions (value $180)

  • “Head Mess – Ingrid, Please Help.” One zoom meeting whenever you feel you've “falling off the wagon” or need some cheerleading and sorting out your headspace. Valid for 12 months. (Value $200)

  • 12 video critique feedbacks. Send up to 12 videos of your lifts and I’ll provide feedback to help you keep becoming a better lifter. These will be invaluable to you. (Value $100)
After you spend quality one-on-one time with me…
You’ll Know How to Get and Keep Your Dream Physique While Supercharging Your “Success Mindset” and Gym Confidence
And you’ll do it without “dieting…”

Without having to wonder “what will work?”

Without having to figure it out for yourself…

Without having to shop for another coach or PT…

Without having to do more “research…”

And without suffering from fat loss plateaus!

As a result, you’ll no longer need a differing sized wardrobe with clothes ranging across a zillion dress sizes (yup, done this one too)..

You’ll no longer be a victim of fitness fraud and diet deception...

And you’ll no longer have to rely on hoping and praying!

Instead, you’ll have friends, family and colleagues asking you “what have you been doing…”

Because you are looking, feeling, thinking and performing way better.
Great question!

And the answer is simple.

It’s because I won't just give you “a diet and workout program.”

I’ll dispense science-driven advice built around the framework of your lifestyle.

We’ll approach everything in a way that is doable for you…

So that you won’t have difficulties implementing and sticking to the principles and methods you’ll discover.

What we’ll do is also so much more than recipes, cleaning out your fridge, Tupperware, challenges, and short-term solutions fraught with disastrous endings.

It’s a holistic journey incorporating the triad of awareness…

The mental, the physical, and the emotional…

Including a sprinkle of self-compassion, introspection, and breakthroughs.

Ow, and in case you’re thinking…
Now, You Might Be Wondering, “Why Would This Work When Nothing Else Had?”

Why Am I Offering Staycations That Offer Such Mind-Blowing Value?

There are two reasons.

But first, I’ll share how the staycation idea was born.

I always had online clients say, “I wish I could train with you in person.” 

So, I would invite them to come and stay for a few days… and they would.

They’d come from Mackay to Karratha to Kalgoorlie and everywhere in between…

And often, after their first gym session, their faces would drop.

They often looked a little disappointed…



Even cross or angry.

I would ask,” what’s going on?”

And would always get a similar response….

“I can see how I haven’t been training properly” or “I have been “butchering” your programs.”

“I haven’t been training anywhere near heavy enough.”

“I thought I WAS training hard.”

And I’d say….

“Everybody does, until they come here.”

And this is why you’ll be here! 

To up the ante, improve knowledge, and refine your technique.

If I got $100 for everyone who said at the end “MIND BLOWN,” I might have retired by now.

So, I thought, “why not create a stayover with practicums and tutorials, let clients live with me, and go down some rabbit burrows together…”

And voila – the idea was born 😊 😊

So, coming back to the two reasons, I’d like to:

1) Send the elevator back down.

Look, success doesn't come easy.

And nobody makes their dreams a reality without others opening and holding the door for them from time to time.

This is my way of “sending the elevator back down…”

Because if I had this knowledge when I started, I would have done things differently.

So, I’d like to use that info to expedite your results.

2) Put my best foot forward and show I can help you by actually helping you.

Instead of trying to “convince” you I can provide solutions to you that work…

I’d rather show you.

Because I know that after I help you devise your own tasty, fast, delicious nutrition plan and basic “no fluff” exercise program that will add muscle, burn fat and feel “do-able” for you…

You’ll wanna stick with me for a very long time.

Cause come closer and listen carefully when I say this…

Because we’re building a permanent, radical collaboration between heroine/hero and coach.

Tattoo that on your eyelids.

Just to be crystal clear…

There's no obligation now or at any time to buy any of my other products.

With all that said, please note that this offer is limited and won't last long!

I have a 2 year vision of commanding $25,000 for 7 days. Uh huh, true story.

So, to ensure you don't miss out....

Here’s How the Process Works:

At the bottom of this page, you’ll find a big button with the text “schedule my free consultation.”

Click on that button and fill out the short questionnaire that appears.

If you meet the strict (but reasonable) criteria, we’ll hop on a call together. 

We’ll get to know each other…

I’ll figure out what you want to accomplish…

Answer some of your most burning health and fitness questions... 

Provide you with valuable insights you can instantly use to improve your results... 

And we’ll see if you’re a good fit for my staycation. 

It's that simple.

Now, if you’re worried I’m going to “hard sell” you into joining the staycation…

Let me be transparent, as I like to be....
You’ll NEVER Receive a Sales Pitch in Disguise!
None of them. 

I checked 😊.

But I'm willing to put things on the line like this…

Because I know this may be the most valuable experience you've ever had for your health and fitness results.
If You Believe This Free Consulting Session Isn’t One of the Most Valuable Health and Fitness Experience You’ve Ever Had, I’ll Send You $50 for “Wasting Your Time”
Think about it.

You’ll probably never see such a fantastic offer from another quality trainer
ever again.

I’ll personally help you with your health and fitness goals… for FREE...

And if you feel like I’ve wasted your time, I’ll pay you $50.

Just tell me and it’s yours

No questions asked.

Besides, You’re Covered by My Outrageous “The Lights are On but Nobody's Home” Guarantee
Which Other Trainer Would Do That?

By now, you might be saying to yourself…

“But my circumstances are different. How do I know you can make your nutrition, training, and mindset knowledge work for me?”

Or a little voice in your head might be muttering…

“This all sounds great but my body plays differently and this won't work for my unique lifestyle.”

I understand.

Fair points.

But I GUARANTEE you that this works.

Therefore, if you book your staycation, visit, and aren’t ecstatic with what you learn….

Let me know within three days of leaving and I’ll refund everything you paid…

Plus, you can keep ALL the intellectual property I gave to you.

Listen, I either got more front than Myer.…

Or I am 1 can short of a 6-pack….

Because show me a coach who offers what I do AND stands behind their products and services like me. 


How’s that for fair?

(Well, let’s be honest, it’s not fair cause I’m getting the short end of the stick. But I wear big girl panties and can live with that.)


If we’re a good fit and you want to join the exclusive staycation, I’d be happy to.

But if you don't, that’s also fine.

It’s that simple.

I won’t pressure, cajole, or hassle you into anything…

And even if you don’t want to join, we can still be friends 😊.

This will just be a friendly chat between us…

Where I show you I can help you by actually helping you.

In fact, I’m so sure this will be a game-changer for you that…

“Whilst prepping for my first competition, I decided to visit Ingrid in Geelong. I stayed at her place for three nights.

“Whyalla doesn't have a bodybuilding gym so it was really good to have equipment I usually don’t have access to.

“Ingrid was extremely hospitable. Her technique sessions were incredible. My lifting technique improved ten-fold in three days. In particular my whole bench set up but also lifts like bent-over rows and military press.

“When I got back to Whyalla I had a few regulars at my training time pass comment on my new (and improved) lifting style.

“Also, while over there Ingrid took me to Coles and we spent an hour there reading labels, especially in the "healthy" aisle. Well, that was an eye-opener!

“We also dined out on the waterfront at a nice restaurant and Ingrid talked about how many of the dishes I could order and still be eating metabolically precise meals.

“From bubble baths each night to Ingrid's mum's quiche to journalling of an evening with respect to food demons and strategies to her dogs Mac and Milly - it was the best three days.

“Ingrid taught me so much from morning until night. The one main thing I recall is Ingrid's patience. She never once made me feel silly, inferior or like a beginner. She puts things in ways that make you feel empowered and that you ‘get it.’

“If you are thinking of visiting Ingrid in Geelong, think of it like "turbo-charging" your progress in light-years. I am glad I organised time off work to ‘just do it.’”

– Simone, Whyalla

“If You Are Thinking of Visiting Ingrid in Geelong, Think of It Like ‘Turbo-Charging’ Your Progress in Light-Years”
"I decided I wanted to do a photoshoot to help keep me on track. I was uncomfortable with my weight and I lacked confidence with my weight training, even though I was studying to be a PT.

“The best thing I did was travel to Geelong and train with Ingrid Barclay for 3 days. That was my turning point.

“After spending quality time with my idol I learned so much and I felt a lot more in control of my career as a personal trainer as I doubted myself so much all the time.
“What Ingrid taught me was priceless. It's hard to put into words. The training confidence I left with was invigorating. I had a new kind of attitude.

“She has this saying that I tell myself now: ‘Don't let the bar own you - you own the damned bar!’ I love this. Ingrid is remarkable in the way she can make you feel.

“I had a ball on my photoshoot, wearing some quirky outfits and being girlie. I feel comfy within myself and I learned so many little tips and tricks from Ingrid personal training wise.

“I highly recommend anyone to spend time with her, her knowledge is insane.”

– Christina Stebbing, Newcastle. Lost 9 kilos in 10 weeks

“The Best Thing I Did Was Travel to Geelong And Train with Ingrid Barclay for 3 Days”
“Ingrid has the magic sprinkle of firm, educative, caring and good timing.

“She coaxed my body lean, not forced it.

“I've competed before but nowhere in this condition.

“Anyone who wants to achieve leanness needs Ing in their corner".

– Ji Cottrill, Geelong. Lost 15 kilos and 13% body fat in 16 weeks

“Ingrid Has the Magic Sprinkle Of
Firm, Educative, Caring and Good Timing”

"I chose Ingrid to coach me after following FIO for a couple of years. I liked her forthright approach.

“She was always speedy with her email responses and I liked the way my diet was tweaked weekly according to the week's results. That made sense to me.

“I ended up doing two seasons under her and got into better shape the second time as she knew how I responded to certain foods better. Her training programs were really solid and enjoyable."

– Rebecca Tobler, Canberra. Lost 8 kilos in 12 weeks
“Her Training Programs Were
Really Solid and Enjoyable”
"Thank you, Ingrid.

“I am so proud of what I have achieved.

“It wouldn't have been possible without all of your support and knowledge.

“I have fallen in love with training and can't tell you how happy I am."

– Anna Kichakov, Geelong. Lost over 30 kilos in 40 weeks

“I Have Fallen in Love With Training And Can’t Tell You How Happy I Am”

“While Ingrid provides a very personable online training service, it pales into insignificance compared to being in the gym with her in person.

“I have been in gyms for a few years but I was like a dry sponge thrown into a full bucket of water. I soaked up so much not only information but observations about a variety of things.

“Little things like she had always campaigned for me to drink around three litres of water. I noticed Ingrid drank it all day long. And that she would eat when she needed to regardless of what she was doing.

“I Would Fly From Anywhere in the World To Stay With Her for a Few Days”

“Even looking at the supplements that she had on top of the microwave. It’s all very interesting when you get to see exactly what your coach does and how they live.

“I like her instruction style. I would imagine she changes according to the client but I always found she could find a cue or an analogy to have something make sense to me. So, lightbulbs were flashing all day long.

“Ingrid has this uncanny ability to push you hard whilst being encouraging and patient. Each of the three nights we had some terrific conversations. She even showed me the backend of Recomposer and how it all works.

“I also went through her emotional eating course because that had become a recent problem.

“The AWARE principle is fantastic and I love that she was able to show and tell me EXACTLY what to do when I want to go to the cupboard and eat pastries (my nemesis). I don’t binge often anymore and now know what I need to do to curb it.

“Ingrid is a wonderful host, lovely home, gorgeous gym fur babies, and metabolically precise meals always on hand. I would fly from anywhere in the world to stay with her for a few days.

“Your visit will not compare to the internet, books, the average “personal trainer”, not even the average coach. She is your fitness and physique sherpa.

“She guides you through your personal complicated fitness problems, identifies your blind spots, and shows you new opportunities for growth. Spend. Time. With. Her.”

– Connie Pretula, Vancouver, Canada

Now, Before You Apply, Let Me Be Brutally Honest

If you want to join the staycation, that won't be cheap.

Not crazily expensive either, but also not cheap.

A service of such calibre just can't be offered at a low price.

Now, I'm positive it'll be more than worth the investment.

In fact, I've had people say the staycation would be worth at least $16,000.

But the good news is that it's not that expensive.

Depending on the package you select...

It might not even be half of that amount.

That's because in total we're talking about $3,200 to $8,000 for the two to five days.

*All coaching clients including international visitors are welcome to discuss longer stays

So, it's not cheap…

But it's also not crazily expensive.

I mean, consider the following:

How much is it worth to you to not have “fat days” anymore… so that you can go to your wardrobe and choose anything knowing it’ll fit comfortably and look good?

How much is it worth to you to never have to worry about not knowing what to eat or how to train?

And how much would it be worth it to you to FINALLY reach your health and fitness goals…

Knowing that you'll be in complete control of your results and physique?

I can't judge for you, but for many people, that is PRICELESS.

Also, please note that it's worth it to invest in yourself.

Many mothers and women in general feel "guilty" when spending money and time on themselves.

They always put others first…

And as a result, often sacrifice their own health, well-being, and personal development.

If that represents you, let me make one thing crystal clear: 
You DO Deserve This!
Investing in yourself will not only benefit you and your life…

But it’ll also positively impact everyone around you.

When you're healthy and in shape, you set a positive example to the people you love the most…

And as a result, you might encourage them to also partake in a similar journey.

Besides, if you know the principles and methods of proper nutrition…

That’ll not only benefit you but also the people you eat with, including your children (if you have any).

Children deserve to have access to healthy foods that are good for them…

And while almost all mothers have good intentions, they often feed their children unhealthy meals…

Simply because they don't know any better.

Today, all of this can change…

Because I’m going to teach you EVERYTHING you need to know about nutrition for your health and fitness success.

What's more, this investment might even save you money in the long run.

That's because when you reclaim your health and well-being, you're less likely to get sick, which means a reduced healthcare bill…

And you'll experience higher energy levels, which will benefit every area of your life, including your career (if that's your thing).

So, yes…


That being said…

This Offer is NOT for Everybody!

I am open to all nationalities, genders, religions, cultures, and people from all walks of life.

There is no judgement in those respects at all.

But there are a few strict (but reasonable) criteria you'll need to meet to qualify.

Here they are:

You MUST be coachable and follow instructions.

(Don't worry, I won't ask you to do anything weird… at least not THAT weird)

After all, if you don't follow my advice, we'd be wasting each other's time.

So, if you already think you know it all, this is NOT for you.

Alcoholics and addicts (to any crutch) are welcome but ONLY when willing to try to lessen their addiction to said crutch... 

This is not for you if you're unwilling to attempt to change your unconstructive fitness habits.

You MUST be willing to set realistic timelines.

What I tell people is NOT sexy…

And it is often not what they want to hear…

But it is truthful.

While I know we can achieve impressive results together…

This WON'T work if you're looking for a magic bullet to go from chubby to fitness supermodel in two to five days.

Transforming your physique (and your life) takes time.

You MUST be willing to open up.

Honest dialogue is imperative.

Without it, we have nothing to work with.

That's why this is NOT for those who are not ready to call themselves out on their own bullshit.

You MUST be ready to see things for what they are…

And you MUST be willing to share your situation, past, and emotions with me.

This is NOT for those with conflicting goals.

"I want to run the Boston marathon, become a powerlifting champion, and win a bodybuilding competition… all while eating everything I want."

Uhmm… NO.

That won't fly.

That's it!

Those are all the requirements.

If you meet them, we'll make a good fit.

Now, there is one more thing I have to make obvious:

This Opportunity Won't Last Forever!
And that's not false scarcity.

This offer is extremely limited because remaining at this price is not in my business plan. Plus...... I can only work with a handful of clients at a time.

Don't blame me, I don't make the rules around here!!!

Wait, maybe I do make the rules around here.

Eh, fine, you got me there 🤷‍♂️.

Point is, this isn't a gimmick. (In fact, if you know me, you will know I am anti-gimmick)

Such staycations take up an ENORMOUS amount of my weekly bandwidth.

And while I LOVE to work with my clients…

I have to be realistic. (as they are full-on)

There are only a certain number of clients I can bring in without becoming overwhelmed…

And I will NEVER sacrifice the high standards I've set for this service at ANY cost.

So, if you think this might be the right choice for you...

Clickety click (nah, PUNCH) the button, like crazy, below and let’s talk.


P.S. Aaaaaah, you made it to the warm and cosy place in the PS section.
Okay, look…

This is a very limited offer because not only have I had to employ three new staff members recently…(wohoo, and welcome Steph, Ravi and Stefan)

But the staycations are starting to take off and I haven’t even begun to hit the straps with my marketing campaign yet.

I mean I haven't started my google, Instagram and Facebook ads yet.

I am anticipating not a whole lot of time leftover to be offering these bonus perks in the future….

Don't go n settle for beige when seriously, you can choose magic.

So, act now and excitedly hit that “book appointment” button. 😊

There’s no "catch" to this offer.

You will not be signing up for any "trial" to some monthly program or anything like that.

No shenanigans of any kind (pinkie promise).

P.P.S. Consider what you have spent in gym memberships, personal trainers, on-line coaching, books, shakes, supplements, challenges, medications, stomach aids, surgery and/or prescriptions?

How are those “investments” working for you?

And how much will you spend again this year?

What if you could book a staycation with me, learn everything all at once in an immersive fitness experience, and completely change the course of the rest of your life?

Wouldn’t that be worth it?

I can’t draw that conclusion for you.

You’re the only person who can do that.

But let’s be honest, how much longer do you want to stay at war with your health and fitness goals?

WHEN will you choose freedom over self-punishment?

I mean, historically everything you have tried has not worked…not LONG-TERM.

So, what are you going to do next if not visit, learn n be inspired by a true Australian industry legend and icon (Markos M introducing me at Pro Raw 2023) once and for all?

Count macros and calories again?

Try a new diet? Hire a new trainer? Harness more motivation?

Or how about losing and regaining 10 kilos this year?

There’s a way easier and more effective option.

So, if you finally want to reach your health and fitness goals…

Frequently Asked Questions
How can I travel to Geelong?

It’s simple.

If you travel from Melbourne, it’s only one hour by car, train or bus…

And I’ll have a parking spot for you on my property where your car will be safe.

If you travel from another place/state, Geelong has an airport, and I’ll pick you up there.

Can I bring my dog with me?

Yes! Absolutely.

Your dog is more than welcome.

I’m a vegetarian or vegan. Is this staycation still okay for me?

While I prefer to work with meat-eaters (meat has benefits for body composition and performance), vegetarians, vegans ect are welcome (just not oxygenerians)...

I have a friend who wants to do the weekend with me. Is this possible?


No problem.

You’ll each have a room with a double bed and share a bathroom.

We can coordinate the staycation and conduct everything two-on-one.

This will reduce the cost by $500 per person.

Can males do the Reinvent Yourself Intensive?

Of course.

This suits both males and females.

I have a lot of food sensitivities. Is this an issue?

Absolutely not.

Your food requests will be catered for…

And I’ll ask you to fill out a lifestyle snapshot to make sure I’m very familiar with your food tolerances.

What will I need to pack for my stay?

You’ll need to bring training clothes.

If you have a weight belt, straps, or wraps, knee sleeves, bring those too.

Anything you usually train with.

You’ll need PJs, toiletries, and hiking boots if you have opted for the You Yang’s hike, although runners will be fine.

A cap possibly.

A camera, if you don’t have one on your phone.

And if you’re doing some form of emotional eating, bring a journal.

I’ll provide everything else you’ll need.

In which gym will we train?

We’ll have access to an on-site and fully equipped private boutique gymnasium with a wide range of powerlifting and bodybuilding equipment…

And the entire facility will be for us two alone.

Here’s a photo of the gyms on my property:

  • Barbells/dumbbells…
  • Specialty bars…
  • Cable stations…
  • Monolift…

You name it…

I have everything we need.

Will I have any downtime?

The idea of your stay is to fit in as much learning as possible.

That’s why we’ll take our time for the staycation…

So, you can soak up the information.

That said, there are small gaps for rest…

And we may, depending on the options you choose, have time to sneak in a movie on Netflix one evening.

Of course, you’ll also have enough time to soak in your deep, luxurious bath for as long as you wish!

In fact, for your early morning rises, I’ll gift you some Easy Breeze Awakening Shower Steamers.

The crisp and effervescent scent of the peppermint and eucalyptus essential oils will drift through warm steam…

Filling your shower with a rejuvenating aroma.

They will infuse your morning with a refreshing, luxurious, and spa-like experience…

So that your day will be off to a wonderful start.

Then, at the end of the day, I’ll have another treat for you…

This time in the form of a Lavender Calming Bath Bomb…

Which is perfect for unwinding after a long day.

Whether you are mentally pooped from so much learning stimulation…

Or physically bombed from training…

These are the perfect bath additions.

These natural bath bombs have no colourants, synthetic preservatives, parabens, or animal-derived components…

And only contains mineral-rich and skin-loving ingredients…

So that you’ll have a true “ooh la la” experience.

Who else will be in your home during my stay?
I live on my own with two gorgeous Staffordshire terriers, Mac and Rollo, and a cat named Kruze.

They’re all chilled, friendly, and well-behaved…

But be warned… they are “pat whores.”

Can I see more success stories of the clients you’ve trained?

Of course.

“The Gratitude and Appreciation I Have For Her Are Hard to Put Into Words”

“I started with Ingrid Barclay in July 2012

“Walking in, I was a very unhappy and unhealthy 19-year-old girl. My confidence was at an all-time low and although I didn’t think I was really overweight, I knew I had to do something.

“Turns out, I was unaware of how unhealthy I actually was. I remember my first consultation with Ing and immediately knew this wasn’t going to be a 12-week course.
“We decided to take a little bit of a different approach to my training and fat loss. We focused mainly on improving my netball and having a goal of playing B grade in the 2013 season.

“Having a sporting focus, I was able to see my improvements on the netball week after week. This made me stay on track a lot easier than focussing purely on my fat loss.

“Most of my training is with Ing and once I had a bit of strength, we started power training. The power training we did over the off-season has made the biggest change to my netball game this year!

“The feeling of being strong, quick, and light on my feet is more of a reward to me than any fat loss.

“A year later and my whole lifestyle has changed. I am happier, I am more confident, I never thought I would say I love box jumps or pushing weighted sleds.

“I am playing B grade for my netball club (YAYYY! – Goal achieved!), I have seen a MASSIVE change in body shape and probably most importantly my attitude towards everything has completely changed!

“I cannot thank Ingrid enough for the knowledge and support she has given me over the last year. The gratitude and appreciation I have for her are hard to put into words.

“All I can say is that I look forward to continuing training into the future and hopefully competing for the first time in 2014!!”

– Kate Dosen, Geelong
“I began training with Ingrid 6 months before my first competition.

“The training was incredibly brutal and the dieting wasn’t much better.

“Ingrid compiled my routine and sorted out my posing for me.

“By contest day I was both physically and mentally prepared.

“I’m Happy to Say I Won My First Competition in the Novice Section” 
“Ingrid Always Believed in Me and Stuck 
By Me to the End and Watched Me Fulfil My 
End Goal of Getting up on Stage Again”

“I have trained with Ingrid at Body Conquest since July 2012. I came to BC at my heaviest weight in my life, depressed and with no desire in life for anything much but to get my body back to fit, trim and healthy and to get back on stage again and compete.

“I am a Personal Trainer and feeling that way about myself, was often afraid to tell people I was a PT. I certainly didn’t appear to be how people perceive PT’s. So, I knew that I had to get someone to help me get back to a “Happy Ange” again and be comfortable in promoting my business.

“Ingrid Is a Fantastic Trainer. She Knows Her Stuff and Genuinely Cares About Her Clients and Their Progress”

“Being a part of Ingrid’s gym has been life-changing. 

“I first started with having undergone shoulder reconstruction surgery plus being overweight. My shoulder was weak and constantly jeopardised when in the wrong position. 

“I have always struggled with being overweight. 
“I Am Now the Leanest, Strongest, and Most KNOWLEDGEABLE I Have Ever Been! The Best ‘Self-Investment’ I Have Ever Made”
“Before I started training with Ingrid Barclay, 
I had never set foot in a proper gym, I had never had a personal trainer, and I never knew what I was doing with my health and fitness. 

“To say I was intimidated and nervous would be an understatement! 

“Within mere moments, Ingrid put me right at ease, not only with her obvious wealth of experience and knowledge, but also with her warmth.

“You’ve Given Me Some Great Tools  That Have Been Nothing but Brilliant In 
And Around My Training and Nutrition”

“Hi Ingrid, I want to thank you for putting in the time and effort over the last few months, coaching me through my re-entry into lifting. 

“By far the hardest thing I’ve done was walking into a gym in the state I was in.

“I’ve learnt so much from you that I know I will continue to use, learn from and expand upon. 
“Thank You for Helping Me Become 
A Better Version of Me, Ingrid”
"I have just finished doing 16 weeks with Ingrid. 

“There was always useful information provided that I gradually introduced and kept, which secured some fitness habits for me.

“The information always made sense and was often science-based, which suits my needs as I didn't feel that I was following something "fluffy." 

Do I need to be fit, strong, and lean to do this weekend?

Absolutely not. 

The whole idea is to improve yourself as a trainee…

And if you’re at a beginner level, that’s so more than fine. 

Everything we’ll do will be around your capabilities and current situation.

In fact, some of the people that join my staycations are quite overweight and unfit. 

No problem!

There is zero judgement here because I’ve been weak and extremely overweight myself. Don't forget, I have been you....

I have an injury. Can I still join the staycation?

Unless the injury is a broken leg, in which case I would opt for another time, the answer is yes! 

Of course, there may be things we need to work around, but that’ll have minimal impact on the weekend’s information.

In fact, it won’t impact the materials on mindset, (emotional) eating, and career coaching (if you’re a PT or want a CV) whatsoever. Bek did a 4 day one with 1 knee reco....

That said, it would be good to discuss any injuries you have during our call.

Where will I sleep?

You’ll be staying and living with me in my lovely and modern home…

And you’ll have your own private room with a private toilet and bathroom, including a deluxe bath.

(You’re going to LOVE the bath, and if you want, we can even turn it into an ice bath).

Here’s the room in which you’ll be sleeping:

How do I get started?

“I Travelled Three Times a Week From  Warrnambool to Geelong Over a Period Of 4 Years to Train with Ingrid Barclay”
"The best way I can provide a testimonial is by saying that I travelled three times a week from Warrnambool to Geelong over a period of 4 years to train with Ingrid Barclay. That's a two-hour trip each way. 

“Midway through, my husband said, "you will end up wrapped around a tree," because I would finish work at 5.30 pm, hit the road, train, and then drive home. 

“To her credit, Ingrid tried twice to find me a personal trainer in Warrnambool but they simply weren't comparable. I had to go back to Ingrid both times. 

“Ingrid is a wonderful coach, friend, and confidant. I don't want to compete again but I am glad I ticked it off my bucket list. That is Ingrid - she will get you where you want to go."

– Maria Beaton, Warrnambool

“She Is Hard but Fair, Works You Hard, 
And Educates You in the Process” 
"I chose to drive 50 minutes each way to train under Ingrid because I knew she was the trainer for me. 

“Tough love but I'm used to that being in the Army. She is hard but fair, works you hard, and educates you in the process. 

“Tough love but I'm used to that being in the Army. She is hard but fair, works you hard, and educates you in the process. 

“The fat loss course taught me a lot about food. I was really happy by the time my wedding came around, and I lost over 13 kg's in the 12 weeks. 

“I am proud of how disciplined I was and combined with fun training sessions it almost seemed ‘easy.’

“I will continue to train under Ingrid and highly recommend anyone to train with her."

– Cindy Hinds, Point Lonsdale 
“I’m happy to say I won my first competition in the Novice section, so I was stoked.

“Thank you, Ingrid, for all the help getting me ready for the show. I couldn’t have done it without you.”

– Rami Nihet, Altona
“Over the last 18 months, I have worked hard, had my ups and downs, but never gave up regardless of a slow weight loss.

“I managed to lose 10 kgs, which is not a lot on the scales, but certainly changed my body composition. Now feel that I fit the image of a PT! I also got to the stage and competed in Oct 2013.

“All of this would not have been possible without the help of Ingrid. Ingrid constantly changed my food and exercise plans to help me with so many plateaus I encountered.

“Ingrid always believed in me and stuck by me to the end and watched me fulfil my end goal of getting up on stage again.

“Thank you Ing, I would not be where I am today without your help.”

– Ange Simpson, Ballarat

When I started, I was at the heaviest I have ever been in my life and still climbing the scales. My work involves a lot of manual labour and lifting heavy weights from 5 to 30 kilos. I was at my wit's end.

“I had been following Ingrid for some time before I finally made that choice to see her. Was an emotional rollercoaster to start off with, learning to eat, learning to exercise, plus learning to use my shoulder all over again and strengthening. 

“It’s a process, but if you are willing to make the necessary changes, it gets easier and becomes second nature.

“It’s been seven months and I have lost 16 kilos and am still going. My strength overall is fantastic. My performance at work has increased significantly. I feel more energetic. My physique has changed so much.

“Honestly, without the help from Ing, I would not be where I am today. Ingrid is a fantastic trainer. She knows her stuff and genuinely cares about her clients and their progress. 

“She adapts to her client’s needs and tailors your exercises if you’re injured. We have been through some lows but so many more highs with happy tears! 

“I am thankful every day to have met Ingrid and the changes she has helped me make for a lifestyle change to better myself and my future.

“You get no BS from training with Ingrid, direct to the point and that’s what I love about it.”

– Helen Georgiou

“By the end of the initial consultation, I was excited!

“12 months later under the guidance and expertise of Ingrid, coupled with her genuine interest and personal investment in my progress, I am now the leanest, strongest, and most KNOWLEDGEABLE I have ever been! 

“Not to mention, I am even about to enter into my first novice powerlifting comp, something I would have never imagined saying a year ago!

“My training and education through Ingrid has been the best 'self-investment' I have ever made! Thank you, Ingrid!”

– Ben Johnstone, Geelong

“You’ve given me some great tools that have been nothing but brilliant in and around my training and nutrition. 

“I have to say it was bloody hard but the longer I did it the easier it became. Something clicked in the weeks after my last skins. Not just mentally I might add.

“From a hormonal point of view, I think my body has begun to reset in a more balanced way because of the eating lifestyle. 
“My stress levels are down. I’m so much more relaxed and focused about things. I don’t worry as much. I trust the process. I’ve formed good habits again. 

“I’m thankful every day and excited about something I love for the first time in a long time.

“Bodybuilding powerlifting here I come. 

“I cannot thank you enough. You are an amazingly talented, intelligent and strong woman who inspires me immensely.

“Looking forward to the powerlifting comp.”

– Annette Kennedy, Melbourne

“There were life events that impacted my total commitment but I didn't beat myself up over these (e.g., if I missed a workout or ate above my quota) and got back on track asap. 

“I feel that mentally I have grown as previously, if I had had a bad day or two, that would be the end of it for me and I would quit. I feel better in control with the gained knowledge. 

“I'm really happy (and surprised) with the results. They show what consistency and progression (pushing in the gym) can do. 

“I feel more confident when going to the gym and love that at 52 years old I can feel fit and fabulous. 

“Thank you for helping me become a better version of me, Ingrid." 

– Kristen Whisson, Queensland
And here is what some of my clients wrote about working with me:

“I’ve Blown All My PB’s Out of the Water!”

"I want to say a great big thank you 🙏. I have not only improved my body composition and feel very proud of my achievements but also managed to put the scales away and not be a slave to them and let them dictate my mood.

“I rely on my clothes and measurements now to guide me. Most importantly, I’ve got much greater control of my emotional eating.

“Finally, and most exciting for me, I’ve blown all my PB’s out of the water! I’m now squatting 85kgs when I started at 50 kg. My deadlift started at 40 kg and is now 87.5 kg, bench press from 30 kg to 50 kg, and leg press from 100 kg to 220 kg.

“I’ve appreciated your honesty and straightforward approach as it has really resonated with me and your personal experience you are so willing to share inspires me.”

– Donna Bridges, Melbourne

“I Achieved What I Wanted and Feel
Much Fitter and Much Stronger”

"Upon meeting Ingrid, I was quite intimidated at first.

“She is a strong, smart, and intelligent girl who doesn't muck around. I knew this was what I needed.

“Going at it alone hadn't been working and I needed regular training times where I was expected to turn up.

“I did her "10 Week Fat Loss Course" which meant mostly high energy carbohydrates mostly around training times and was weight training based.

“I achieved what I wanted and feel much fitter and much stronger. I have my motivation and "spark" back. I am already into my next training block."

– Sue Nikolovski, Highton

“You Are Not Just a Coach to Me – You Are My Sister, My Life-Saver, and My Angel”

"Ingrid, you were my guarding (sic) Angel who saved my whole life by enlightening me to the right way and waking my mind up, opening my eyes to my real self-worth and my potential.

"You are not just a coach to me - you are my sister, my life-saver, and my Angel. I wish I can be there for you and give you back some of the amazing things you gave me so far.

“And last thing, from the bottom of my heart, I love you and I am grateful I have you in my life ❤️."

– Nada Gaza, Canberra

“From the Minute I Met Ingrid I Felt Confident That This Woman Knew Her Stuff and That I Couldn’t Be in Better Hands to Help Me Achieve My Goal”

“It was Ingrid's encouragement, direction, and knowledge that kept me on track to succeed.

“She checked in with me weekly to track my progress. She gave me weekly meal plans that were specifically tailored to me and my needs. And her one-hour one-on-one personal training sessions over the 10 weeks taught me more than I've learnt in 10 years. Such a wealth of knowledge!

“Given it was my first comp, I won’t lie, I felt nervous about the process and what to expect as the unknown daunted me.

“Thankfully Ingrid gave me some excellent reference material that I was able to read in my own time that took me through the process step by step.

“The books Figure it Out & All Figured Out have been beautifully written by Ingrid herself and really assisted me with the 1,000 questions I had.

“If you're thinking about competing or merely wanting to increase your health and fitness, I can't recommend Ingrid enough!

“I certainly exceeded my own expectations of what I thought I could achieve by placing in both the Sport Model and Fitness Model category thanks to Ingrid. Stop procrastinating and take the leap. It will pay off tenfold.”

– Sophie Montgomery, Geelong. Lost 6 kilos and 7% body fat in 9 weeks

“Ingrid is Diligent in Her
Pursuit of Getting Results”

“I have been fortunate to have trained with Ingrid during different phases of my life for more than 12 years. Ingrid was first recommended to me after watching a body-building competition and deciding that I could do that.

“We had a very successful partnership over this time where I went from around 30% body fat to on stage at around 5%.

“The care, management, and dedication to me as an athlete were amazing and I went from having a dream to fulfilling that thanks to Ingrid because without her there is no way it would have become a reality.

“Fast forward a few years and we find ourselves back together again, this time with my dreams being Triathlon and an Ironman.

“When I first started this pursuit, I suffered a setback called a torn Achilles. As a 50-year-old athlete, this was not great. However, after two years of rehabilitation, I am back. But when all this first happened my first thought was who can help me. It was a no-brainer. A call to Ingrid took place and the rest is history.

“It wasn’t just about fitness it was about weaknesses in the rest of my body created by the injury and also some compensation injury also. Ingrid’s knowledge in this area is amazing. We worked hard on strength and flexibility in the areas that required it and what was required for the disciplines of triathlon and the training involved.

“Ingrid is diligent in her pursuit of getting results, and although Triathlon was not a sport she had lots of knowledge about, her knowledge of strength and relating it back is to any sport and I also know that if she doesn’t know she will have the resources to learn.

“My Ironman is in Cairns in 2022 so this is a work in progress for us but the improvements that are being made are significant and I know that while I’m working with Ingrid as my strength coach I will be on that start line in June.”

– Wendy Chirgwin, Melton

“I Feel More Knowledgeable”

“I was feeling really unfit and tubby and wasn't comfortable wearing any of my clothes.

“I signed on, learned to lift and to eat only unprocessed, unrefined food sources.

“Good fats, first-class sources of protein, plenty of water, and some fruit. I learned what to consume before and after training, which I was doing all wrong before.

“Ingrid is a hard taskmaster but in a patient manner when you are learning good technique.

“I looked forward to my weekly skinfolds because it was confirmation of my good choices all week.

“I liked that she taught me things when we rested, so I understood how things work.

“I feel more knowledgeable and she sent me scientific articles in my weekly emails so I could read for myself.”

– Scott Quarrell, Geelong. Lost 14.5 kilos and 10% body fat in 10 weeks

“You Are So Much More Than ‘Just a Coach’ To Me. You Are a True Friend, a Woman I Love And Respect, and a World-Class Coach, Judge, Trainer, and Wealth of Knowledge”

“Good Afternoon Ingrid. I just wanted to take the time to write my thoughts on our comp prep.

“This is the second season we have worked together and we made a decision early on to aim for the World!! Literally!

“Our plan was to compete at my state comp, on to the nationals, and finally culminate in a trip to the WFF World Championships on the Gold Coast. And guess what - we did it!!!!

“18 months between competitions meant I had all-over growth and glowing condition that only sound training and nutrition coaching can achieve.

“There were no short-cuts, no uncalculated risks, and no bro-science!! Just honest and sound coaching that included a huge dollop and love and care when things got tough.

“What I love most about working with you, Ingrid, is that you listen to me when I report back to you. I'm not just another name to fob off and I always get a personal response when I ask for one.

“We changed some of our approaches drastically during this prep and you weren't afraid to get a little radical in the end to get me to the final goal.

“When I say 'radical,' I don't mean stupid or idiotic (think hours of cardio and/or no food!). In fact, it was quite the opposite - more food, less cardio, and way better results.

“I have to be honest and say that the most valuable tool you gave me was the push to listen to my own body and make some of my own decisions about my food intake in the last weeks.

“To clarify, this is my third competition season (over three years) and I am also an avid self-analyser. I have always hungered to learn more and am enthusiastic to implement strategies that may produce even better results.

“You recognised this and nudged me to do it. Not many coaches would be secure enough to allow a trainee to input into their own program. But you did, and I am over the moon that you did!!

“I learned so much and felt such a sense of responsibility to achieve our goals. My motivation was at an all-time high!

“So the outcome? Fifth in the WFF World Championships! FIFTH!! In a line-up that truly was World Class. I couldn't be happier with my outcome and I could not be happier sharing the spotlight with you.

“You are so much more than 'just a coach' to me. You are a true friend, a woman I love and respect, and a world-class coach, judge, trainer, and wealth of knowledge. I am honoured to be part of your team.

“All of my love.”

– Kirsten Engels, Katherine. 5th Place WFF World Champs, 2014

“I Achieved My Bodybuilding Goals and Then Some and Even Got Invited to Compete at the IFBB World Championships!”

"I can’t thank Ingrid and her team for her coaching help over the past two years. Ingrid is a wonderful coach, and caring individual. 

"She kept me accountable and helped me prep for three bodybuilding shows. I also travelled from Kalgoorlie to Geelong to stay with Ingrid and get some training assistance.

She is an awesome coach and improved my technique out of sight. I even competed in my first ever powerlifting competition whilst I was over there at PTC – Frankston.

"I achieved my bodybuilding goals and then some and even got invited to compete at the IFBB World Championships! I will be forever grateful for Ingrid’s coaching and friendship."

– Athena Millar, Kalgoorlie
