An official end date with a fantastic transformation is a great incentive to get you focused and committed toward your goal but what if you don’t learn the skills along the way to be able to maintain the results you’ve worked hard to achieve?
Learn from the experts in Lifestyle Transformation
Assist PT have been running 12 week challenges since 2009 and have worked with thousands of clients, so we’ve come across all the issues that make getting and maintaining results difficult. We’ve offered the short 28 day challenges but 28 days is not long enough to teach you and help you implement better nutrition, training and mindset behaviours. Results from those types of challenges eventually disappear after the training routine of the challenge ends. Then we’ve offered the longer challenges that focus on training and how to eat better but the truth is, 75% of the people who join a challenge consisting of classes and group training sessions lose motivation before the challenge even ends. If you don’t have any habits to overcome relating to behaviours, thoughts and actions then a short challenge or a longer one that focuses on basic nutrition with group training as an option would be perfect for you but if you do need help to overcome sabotaging behaviours and thought processes, then a lifestyle change with a one on one coaching component will be more valuable to you.
Get support for where support is needed!
We became certified as Body Transformation Specialists in 2009 and eventually worked our way up to Level 4 MP (Metabolic Precision) Trainers in 2014 before branching out to learn more from other health and fitness world leaders. 12 week transformations were our speciality but over the years we became more passionate about teaching people how to not only get fantastic results but also teach them what it takes to maintain those results too. After all, the most rewarding transformation is the one you turn into a lifestyle. We like to help get our clients off to the most powerful start they can. With loads of experience and a genuine care in your health and transformation, when you work with us, you have our support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We changed up our 12 week challenges in 2016 to become more of a 12 week lifestyle transformation program called Overhaul. It’s a collaboration of tools and information that is necessary for someone wanting to drop weight and keep it off. Overhaul addresses all the different stumbling blocks that can derail progress and the information in it continues to grow as we educate ourselves more too. The table of contents from the Overhaul manual flow over 3 pages, addressing all topics to do with mindset, nutrition and lifestyle, while training is personalised by an experienced body transformation specialist in the client’s actual training sessions. We genuinely care about your personal progress. We will teach you what you need to learn right now, support you, keep you accountable and give you feedback on how to implement the systems for success to suit your needs perfectly in every way! Unlike a 12 week challenge which is all about exercising lots and following a strict diet (or worse, consuming more shakes than meals), Overhaul Lifestyle Transformation program will give you the knowledge, skills & tools to become the leader of your own transformation journey by teaching you solutions to the situations you face each day! While you work with us doing Overhaul, you won’t have to work it out for yourself, you have a team of highly respected Lifestyle Transformation Specialists to guide you through the complete process!
Invest in long term changes
Time will always escape us, money will always be needed for other things and motivation is only short lived when you come from a place of wanting! But you know change is needed and a challenge of some sort would be perfect to help you start making your health and happiness a priority. Lifestyle often holds us back from committing to change, perhaps we haven’t yet been willing to sacrifice our favourite snack foods or take away. Maybe the “healthy” snacks, take away or junk foods you have been consuming are zapping your energy and burning a hole in your pocket instead of those stubborn kilos. Most people love a challenge to help them see fantastic results in a short amount of time and help motivate them toward a healthier lifestyle by simply doing more exercise and eating healthier but is that all you really need? There’s a whole lot more to getting results and keeping them than exercising and eating better. There are two more areas that need to be addressed to ensure the effort you put in results in lasting changes.
Align the person you are now with the person you want to be!
YOU ARE UNIQUE so you want a program that can be tailored and relevant to what you need to see best results now. The coaches at Assist PT are always out learning from world leaders in their respected fields. They make sure the plan set before you is applied just as it needs to be for you, taking into consideration your goals, your starting point, your environment, the data we get from your body composition assessments and current health status. For example, if your stress levels are high, copious amounts of high intensity interval training as your choice of exercise may set you up for a weight loss rebound sooner or later. It’s important to find a program that’s been designed to assist you through each phase of your transformation journey, so that your mind keeps up with the new person you are becoming. By doing so, you help put an end to self sabotage and falling back into old habits.
Overhaul – The Holistic Lifestyle Transformation Program
A lifestyle transformation program for people who want to TURN THEIR LIFE AROUND!
Many of our clients have been recognised as finalists in the Metabolic Precision program and two have taken out the winning grand prize, named as the National Lifestyle Champions. Since 2009 we’ve also invested well over $100k in education to ensure we offer the best services at Assist PT. In 2016 we decided to change up our 12 week challenges, turning them into more of a holistic lifestyle transformation program. This program has been refined each time to include only the best and most helpful information that gets to the core of why you stand in your own way and why your best intentions are often short lived and then helps you work through those. If your nutrition and training choices haven’t yet got you to where you want to be then it’s time to join us for Overhaul! Overhaul was created by Annette Shepherd after carefully looking at what types of behaviours and thought patterns sabotaged clients results, either while they were doing a 12 week challenge or after they achieved their results. She then began using various personal development tools to help coach clients through those hurdles and began teaching more things about how to eat to shed those unwanted kilos and improve health. There is no one size fits all approach when it comes to Overhaul, your Overhaul experience is as unique as you, most likely working on things completely different to everyone else in the program so that you make the progress you need to make. Annette and her team at Assist PT are genuinely committed to your success, making themselves available to support you 24/7 on your journey while providing you with helpful feedback and tasks you can do along the way to help you learn how to bring about change.
Can Overhaul Help You Too?
Create healthy habits you can implement immediately without feeling like you are on a diet or missing out on social events
We don’t give out diets or meal plans, we teach you how to make your own choices using a holistic lifestyle approach for long term health. We address Mindset, Health, Environment, Nutrition and Training – it takes all five areas working congruently with one another that allows you to have your freedom with foods. The Overhaul manual comes complete with all the templates you need to help you succeed. Checklists, shopping lists and worksheets to successfully transform your life. By working one on one with your coach you address the areas of greatest importance for you first.
Learn what nutritious foods will help you transform your body and mind
Our approach to nutrition is not narrowed down to any one nutrition plan. We consult with you to establish where you’re at so that we can get you implementing a nutrition plan that works for you, then we focus on teaching you about foods that fuel and nourish your body. We can then help you recreate your favourite recipes into delicious compliant meals that will help melt away body fat and increase energy to have you not only looking amazing but also feeling better about yourself.
Cultivate the mindset for success
Understanding yourself and identifying why you make the choices you do is vital if you’re looking for a 12 week challenge that works. Your successful lifestyle change begins from the inside out so when it comes to mindset, we work on core values to help you become the person you need to be to reach your goals so that you can overcome emotional eating and deeply ingrained habits that have been holding you back. Our bonus seminars and one on one coaching sessions will help you not only create new habits but will also teach you how to have the willpower to stay on track, make better choices and create new habits that will help you look and feel great.
Why Overhaul’s Holistic Approach Makes this “the Best 12 Week Challenge Around”
Life is too short to be on the roller coaster ride of yoyo dieting, stuck in plateaus or keeping up with endless hours of training that you just don’t have time for! As we work together, we will teach you every aspect of a successful lifestyle transformation to finally reach your goals.

Meet Our Overhaul Champion!
Amy trusted us and continued when we began running Overhaul. As a result, she lost 69kgs, felt like a million bucks on her 40th birthday and got healthy enough to fall pregnant!
Amy has done every type of transformation program we have offered. We created Overhaul for people like Amy (and Brooke pictured below) because the truth is, the old 12 week challenges were great, you can see lots of evidence of that below from some of our past clients but the approach was too broad and while it worked great for some clients, it didn’t for others, we were diverting and implementing other methods and tools to help our clients get better results. Change was needed. In January 2016 we ran our last metabolic precision 12 week challenge Amy did everything to the letter, she lost a total of 4.5cm and her body composition changed by a lousy 2kgs. With a further 40 plus kilos to go to reach her goal, we kicked off May in 2017 with a whole new program to help not only Amy but many more clients to see their most impressive results yet. The clients who followed our program and trained with us saw the best results so now it’s a prerequisite that when you join us for Overhaul, you train with us too. We busted Amy’s plateau in her first round of Overhaul, she lost a staggering 64cm and 13kg of body fat in 12 weeks! During this challenge Amy set a fitness goal. She wanted to run 10kms. She did this with an army of supporters who joined her on 31st July 2016. Amy continued with the program and in May 2017 she ran a marathon and lost an incredible 69kgs since joining us. The majority of results came in the 12 months we switched her from semi private training to one on one so we could help her work on being the person she always wanted to be. Amy shares:

Results in 12 Weeks!
The following clients have worked with us prior to Overhaul being created. We have all of these clients to thank. Because of them we created something even greater!
Brooke was so impressed by her MP 12 week result that she returned for many more 12 week challenges. She knew the material we were teaching in the Metabolic Precision lessons so well that we felt compelled to go out and learn more and focus on the other important areas of transformation, resulting in our more holistic and personalised transformation program Overhaul!

What Our Clients Are Saying About Overhaul
Caroline after attending her first seminar for the challenge said “Well today was really something Annette! I feel empowered and strong. I had a few light bulb moments actually! Thank you for encouraging us to be honest!”
After finishing the 12 weeks, she also went on to say “the training was fantastic, thank you to Matt for adapting it around my hip and back pains and thank you Annette for your coaching calls throughout the program, they were great and I appreciate you always had some positive action for me to do to counter my ‘blah’ moments”.
Caroline did a total of 12 hours training over 12 weeks, one hour a week with us to see these results.
Dan “Mentally I feel heaps better, clearer and focused. I hope you know just how much strength you have given back to me. Thank you for helping me find my balls!”
Mel “I would not have grown into the person I am today. My mindset is the best now than it has been in a long time, moving forward and not going back. I can now walk down the chips and lolly aisle, my self talk now tells me I don’t need those things and I continue walking straight past. I don’t even worry about what people think of my new lifestyle eating and exercise. I’m even loving the way I feel within myself.
