Beyond Best

A multi-pronged approach to a healthy lifestyle.

Established 12 years ago, Beyond Best takes pride in its complete approach to health and fitness.

At the beginning of the Beyond Best journey, Founder Beni Cook recognised that, while the majority of people understood the importance of training, they weren’t necessarily looking upon it as one part of a multi-pronged approach to a healthy lifestyle.

Beni’s vision was to establish a supportive and educational environment in which other health factors such as diet, sleep and stress would be a focus. The goal of this fresh approach to personal training was to enable the development and maintenance of a sustainable and robust body through a healthy relationship with fitness.

And it’s a vision which has been delivered on, time and time again. Just ask our thousands of happy clients!

Beni Cook

Beni has always been interested in taking a positive approach to helping people. An expert in health and fitness, Beni has spent the last 16 years motivating and guiding clients towards achieving their goals. Whether through weight loss programs, strength training or Muay Thai boxing (his speciality!) Beni is passionate about working with people who are looking to make positive changes to their wellbeing.

“One of my greatest joys is to see people get healthier, to help them exceed their expectations and actualize their goals. All while realizing that exercise is fun”.

Beni opened the doors to Beyond Best Personal Training in 2002, choosing Fitzroy’s Goodlife Health Club as its base due to the area’s vibrancy. Beni has worked with everyone from people living with obesity right through to professional athletes. No matter what challenges his clients are faced with, Beni prides himself on treating everyone as an individual and creating bespoke wellbeing programs that achieve success.

Sasha Dulics

Originally from the Gold Coast, Sasha graduated from Australia’s most prestigious fitness school and has continued his education by being mentored by the likes of bodybuilding legend 
3 x Mr Olympia Frank Zane and studying the principals of the world’s most successful strength coach, the late Charles Poliquin.

With over eight years experience as a personal trainer, Sasha has helped a diverse range of clients from teenagers, to the elderly, to Ms Novice Figure Australia all achieve life-changing results.

His goal at Beyond Best is to help cut through the sea of misinformation that is out there to finally help you reach your goals through tried and true training methodologies and sound nutrition strategies.

Outside of the gym Sasha enjoys acting and writing music.  He loves seeing different parts of the world and learning languages too.

Beni from Beyond Best is a rare bread of Personal Trainer. As an Allied Health Practitioner (Osteopath) I have been extremely impressed with his high level of professionalism and willingness to refer his clients for help with injuries. This clearly demonstrates he cares and has his client’s best interests in mind. His person-centred and high-touch approach to Personal Training is second to none. This is why Beni is the first person I think to refer my patients to for training… I know they’ll be in good hands.

Very knowledgeable with a client tailored approach. Loved my introductory session which incorporated assessments to evaluate my mobility and range of motion; all the way up to kick boxing.

Josh and Beni are the best! I always enjoy my sessions with Josh. He does push me hard but at least we have a laugh too.

I've been working different PT's for about 10 years and Ben from Beyond Best Personal Training has been the only one who has helped me get the long-term results that I wanted. He knows his stuff, but more importantly, he keeps me motivated week after week. I always look forward to the sessions which I think is one of the reasons that I have achieved what I have. At 41, I have never been fitter and stronger, and I have less aches and pains now than when I was 20 years younger. Thanks Benny.

I trained with Beyond Best for three months and they were awesome. Josh and Ben were professional, respectful and I got really great results working with them (to tone up and build muscle). The training program they designed for me was flexible and achievable, and we always had a good laugh. I definitely recommend them. Caring guys who know what they are doing. I felt like they genuinely love what they do.

About a year ago I did a Muay Thai trial session with Beni. 12 months later, I am attending twice a week. Beni's experience, positivity and the variation he brings to each session has keep me motivated and looking forward to the next one. My technique and overall fitness have steadily improved- a credit to his guidance and encouragement. Thanks Beni!

Like many people out there, I hated doing cardio and running on a treadmill just wasn't doing it for me. So I needed a new, fun, challenging way to staying fit, and this is where Beni came in. By starting Muay Thai training I have dramatically improved my fitness that I wouldn't have gotten from any other training. Beni has also helped me decreased my body fat, increased my muscle tone and unleashed an inner strength I never knew I had! The small group setting is interactive and competitive that keeps you motivated during every session. I highly recommend trying out Muay Thai group sessions with Beni, you will not regret one minute of it! I have the immense respect for him and Beyond Best and encourage anyone looking to get started with him. Gratefully to Beni for all he has done, Shannan McDowall

Beni has been a revelation, not just in the training itself but also making me aware of bad lifestyle habits and being more conscious of overall health. He cares about the results... sometimes it seems more than me!

I trained with Ben for about a year and it was awesome, for me I loved the mix of weights and kickboxing training that we did. Unfortunately I moved out of the area otherwise I'd still be training with him. Highly recommended.
