About Bodyshock Fitness Penrith


My name is Alissa Dodd I am a Personal trainer and have been working in the fitness industry for a number of years, and I love it!


I had struggled with my weight my whole life. I was a “chubby” kid, going through my teenage years I reached over 110kg. Being only 164cm in height, I was big (a size 24!), and obviously very unhappy.


I decided to do something about it!


It is not easy to get started but once you do, your life seems to fall into place and everything gets easier. You start to notice changes, not only on the outside but on the inside as well. Your confidence grows, you become more motivated, feel happier and look forward to new challenges that life brings you.


I decided to become a Personal Trainer because I know what its like to be overweight and unhealthy, I know the tricks and tips to loose that weight, keep it off, and stay healthy. With that knowledge and experience I wanted to help people who are in the similar situation to which I was. I love seeing people turn there lives around through exercise and start loving life!
