"I met Jade in Sept 2018 as I was really wanting to do my first ever bikini comp after losing 60kg over 2 years. It had always been a massive goal of mine. The day I drove down to meet her I was so nervous and had no idea what to expect. When I sat down with Jade she made me feel so comfortable and made any doubts I had in my head about competing or having a coach go out the window. I could tell it was not about the money, she never once tried to sell herself, she just generally had my best interest at heart. From that day onwards I never had any problems contacting Jade, she always got back to me when I emailed her or needed to ask a question. Doing my fist comp prep was scary but knowing I had someone I could trust and someone that cared about me and my health was amazing. Even after comp I was finding reverse dieting really hard and for the week after comp she was just a text message away. I ended up placing 2nd and 4th in my first comp and reached a total weight loss of 70kg from my heaviest weight. If you are looking for a coach that always has your back no matter what, look no further. Jade is caring, compassionate and generally cares for her clients."

"I have been working with Jade for the last 8 months and will never go to anyone else! Her wealth of knowledge and background in the fitness industry is huge! Jade is AMAZING she is understanding and compassionate when it comes to dieting and takes your lifestyle into account when creating the perfect diet and training to suit your needs! Jade got me in the best shape I've ever been in and we did everything slowly so my body was never under any stress. She was able to get me down to 8% body fat with minimal cardio (only did 4 weeks out of 21) and I was eating 1800-1900 calories the peak week of my competition. I placed 1st in my division (fitness novice) and won my PRO card through ANB at the Ms Fitness show on June 3rd 2017. Jade has also taken the time to do my reverse diet which has also gone really well and I have not rebounded in any means which I was really scared about, I am still working with jade and we are on our way to compete in the Figure Novice division in the IFBB show in March 2018 (hopefully aiming for Arnold Classic Australia as well).
Jade has gone above and beyond for me and I wouldn't go to anyone else, her prices are very reasonable too! Jade does all my diet and my posing routine as well, she somehow managed to bring the sass out in me which I didn't think I had!
I'm so happy I found Jade, she has always been such an inspiration for me, I can't wait to compete again"
Jade has been my online coach since January...and if only I'd found her sooner, I would have saved a lot of wasted time and money! I have tried many online programs and participated in many online challenges with none giving me the results I particularly wanted. Until I came across Jade :) within 8 weeks my body was responding in ways that it hadn't before. The results are amazing and I am finally happy and confident with myself.
Jade listened to my body concerns, weaknesses and strengths and designed a program around that. With weekly check-ins, I never struggled with motivation. She also gave me alternatives to some exercises if they didn't suit me or I struggled with for any particular reason. The food program is easy to follow and inexpensive with no fancy frills or exotic food substitutes and I was never hungry.
With the nutrition guide and exercise programs being very affordable, I am looking forward to continuing my training with Jade and watching my body change and become stronger.
I am also looking forward to summer for the first time in a very long time!!!
"Jade has been my trainer for roughly 4 months now, and already I'm noticing some huge changes both physically and mentally. She is extremely supportive and always pushing me to work my absolute hardest. She has helped improve not only my fitness but by diet, providing me with a flexible and delicious meal plan that has had a great impact on me reaching my goal. I would not be where I am today with out her guidance. Training with jade has been the best thing for me and my self esteem as she is not only a great trainer but a great friend. I can't imagine myself going to any other trainer than Jade."
"As a parent it is really hard seeing your child unhappy. Ebony's self esteem was getting lower her school work was falling behind, she was spending most of her time alone in her room. I knew she wanted to start going to the gym so I joined her up. She was going every now and again but wasn't really getting results.
Jade was recommend by a staff member of Surge. Ebony and I went and met Jade. From that first meeting Jade had such a great impact, she was kind and understanding and positive. Ebony loves her time with Jade, I have seen for the first time in a long time that she is proud of herself. I am so grateful to Jade for the influence she has had on my daughter.
I would highly recommend her to anyone who wanted to improve and build confidence.
Thankyou Jade x"

"I have been coaching and personal training with Jade since the beginning of 2017 and more than two years on, I am still happily a Client. That is a referece in itself! Jade is a fantastic person, coach and trainer and her happy disposition and positive personality really resonates with me.
My programme involves a once weekly personal training session plus competition preparation coaching including nutrition, goal focused training programmes along with weekly weight, measurements and skin fold check-ins.
Whether I am in my off-season or preparing for a show I always feel a priority. Jade gives me her undivided attention and is available 24/7 to answer any questions, or just purely for advice and encouragement. She will always do what she can to help.
I adore our 1 on 1 sessions and really look forward to seeing Jade each time, she is a ray of sunshine, so positive, happy and encouraging and pushes me in our sessions to reach my goals and progress.
Regardless of being 46 and in surgically enforced menopause Jade managed to adjust my nutrition and training and tirelessly worked to find a combination that would work to get me stage ready for my fitness competitions. In the two years I have been with Jade I have built a lot of muscle, nice glutes and rounded shoulder caps which I am proud of and in my pre-show phase together we lost 12 kilos, whilst retaining muscle.
I would highly recommend Jade to anyone who is seeking a capable and knowledgeable personal trainer or coach. Whether you have a lifestyle approach to training or are a fitness competitor, Jade will really care about you, make you feel important and will always be available to you.
"I have now been training with Jade Mead for 18 months and could honestly say she is the best thing that has happened to me! She is such a positive influence on my life and has such a loving and caring nature.
Together we have gone from me not placing in previous bikini comps to 5th place in 6 months and then to 1st Place in my latest comp. Through this she has always made sure she takes my personal wellbeing seriously and never pushes me too far. My comp prep is always stress free and Jade always reiterates the importance of reverse dieting after comp.
I am in the best shape of my life and I am so proud of the booty we have grown! Jade has not only helped me totally transform my body but she has helped build me up to be a much more self confident person! The best thing about Jade is her realness, her personality and her bubbliness and I can't wait to see what we can achieve together next.”
"I've been training with Jade for a month and a half now and I have NEVER gotten results as quick as I have with her. I've had other personal trainers that never push me as hard and get the results I want in such a short amount of time. I've lost 5kg in 1.5 months and I couldn't be happier with how I am progressing!"
"My experience with Jade was so much more than a physical transformation, it was a mental transformation as well. Her guidance, knowledge and patience made the whole journey fulfilling and excellent! Flexibility of structured meal plans or macros to suit your lifestyle, and she makes sure to include exercises you enjoy! In addition, she was always available if you had any extra questions or needed the extra support. Can not recommend Jade enough. A coach suited to all levels of experience. Thank you so much!!"
"After years of going to the gym, I was noticing I was feeling more and more unmotivated to even go sometimes. I decided to try a personal trainer to see if that would give me the motivation I was looking for. I’ve been seeing Jade once a week for the last 3 months. I could notice a difference by the end of the first month both mentally and physically. The personal training Jade provides has given me the enthusiasm to go to the gym again and has given me results I did not dream of. This is because she trains based on her own experience and background and knows what works. Although her sessions are tough, Jade is very personable and her focus is 100% on me in this time. I now look forward to going and feel invigorated afterwards."
"I have been training with Jade for about 5 months now and it is always the highlight of my week. Going to a gym can be quite daunting with not really knowing what to do. But since I've been training with Jade she has motivated me, pushed me and has shared so much knowledge with me that I absolutely love the gym now. With Jade I have become healthier, happier, stronger and more confident = #TeamMead"
"Jade is a friendly coach that genuinely cares about her clients and their goals. She is very knowledgeable in a variety of training and having competed herself she is a great mentor and inspiration to anyone hoping to compete. She is a gorgeous person inside and out and a great motivator in helping to achieve your goals."
"I’ve followed and admired Jade for some time on social media and bit the bullet and messaged her to organise a personal training session early 2018 with the goal of getting a “Jade Mead booty”.
I reactivates my gym membership at Surge and haven’t looked back.
Jade is a fantastic personal trainer and very knowledgeable with working with my goals as well as introducing me to exercises and equipment I’ve previously shied away from. Jade is very motivating and encouraging through out our training sessions all with a smile on her face. I am almost at 7 months during my third pregnancy and have really enjoyed the gym, especially this second trimester.
My next goal is to represent Team Mead next year onstage and compete in my first body building competition with Jade’s guidance. I can’t wait for what the future brings under Jade’s wing.
Thank you Jade for being an awesome, inspirational, healthy role model."
