Our Trainers

Larissa Fisher

Hi, I’m Larissa founder and personal trainer at Shine Fitness.
A little about me… I love my job! I am so passionate about seeing women get active, achieve results and enjoy the process. I have been in the health and fitness industry for the past 9 years as a personal trainer and in management roles. I love being able to make a positive impact on women’s lives. Throughout my time in the industry I have seen some incredible transformations not only physically but mentally as well. I am a huge advocate for the power of exercise and healthy living. Health and fitness has always been a big part of my life and a strong part of who I am. My personal favourite fitness achievements have been triathlons, half marathons & trekking to Everest Base Camp. I have experienced a lot in my fitness journey including starting as a beginner, safe effective exercise through my pregnancy, and postpartum fitness. My knowledge, experience in the industry and personal experience has all lead to my training style evolving to be able to help women throughout all the different stages of their life.
I am so passionate about what we have created at Shine Fitness & I’d love you to be a part of it too!

Stephanie O’Brien

Hi! My name is Steph & welcome to Shine Fitness!
A little about me… I seriously LOVE being a part of Shine Fitness. What we have created at Shine is something special. We train in beautiful locations with awesome women, we have a lot of fun and we see results! You will often see me jumping in on Larissa’s sessions with the other girls! My personal health and fitness journey began with founder Larissa in 2009 and we have been the best of friends ever since. I am a fully qualified personal trainer and enjoy all aspects of health and fitness. I also have a full time job away from Shine Fitness so I understand the everyday pressures put on working woman. I have always been involved in sport and gym life and recently competed at the INBA in the figure division, something that I am incredibly proud of – it was super tough! My philosophy as a trainer is simple – HAVE A GO and GET IT DONE! You don’t have to be great to start but you do have to start to be great!


Larissa and Steph are the dream team!! After donating my money to a local gym for years and barely committing I am more than happy to support a local business that actually supports me! Training everyday is something I look forward to instead of it being a chore. The training is suited to anyone at any level yet they have a sneaky way of making you want to be better than yesterday. The Shine trainers have pushed me beyond what I though I was capable resulting in a triathlon and half marathon! I absolutely love being a part of this community and I can’t recommend Shine Fitness enough.

Larissa and Steph are absolutely fantastic personal trainers, who genuinely care about encouraging and assisting you to achieve your fitness and/or life goals. I love having a laugh with the Shine Girls, whose positive attitude always leave me ready to take on a new day. Exercise has never been this fun 🙂

Chantelle de Lastic

Larissa is a fantastic personal trainer. Listens to your goals, challenges you to the next level and encourages you along the way. She knows a lot about the fitness industry and is motivated to see people shine in fitness and overall wellbeing. I have been training with her for two years now and have seen awesome results. I love it how every training session is different.  It’s never to late to give it go!

Melanie Menzel

I’ve been training consistently with Larissa for the last 2years and to date I have lost 13kgs. I can honestly say I am the happiest, healthiest& fittest I’ve ever been in my life. Before training with Larissa I never would have believed I was able to lose this weight. I went so long having that extra 10kgs, it just became a part of me and I gave up on what I thought I could ever look like. I didn’t think that my fat could ever leave my body. I just thought, this is me but thanks to the help of Larissa the old me is gone, and a new healthier, happier, stronger me is here to stay. I would highly recommend Larissa to every woman at any fitness level. Larissa’s sessions are always aimed so you get the most out of it, no matter what your fitness level. Do yourself a favour and train with Shine Fitness.

Larissa has made the biggest difference to my life! She has helped me achieve things like completing my first triathlon which I never would have done without her! Anyone looking to change or enhance their health and fitness, call Shine Fitness Sunshine Coast!!

Teaicia Adams

Over the past 10years or so my focus has largely revolved around my career and more recently my children which has come at a cost to my health and fitness. After having children I searched for a solution that would cater for my needs which led me to gyms, twice. This was a failure as my children were not happy to attend crèche which meant I was stressed out while training and eventually gave up. Since I found Shine, I haven’t looked back. Shine is perfect for me and I am so glad I found such a fun, supportive, accommodating training solution which is even kid friendly. The variety of times and sessions make it easy to attend classes, even with a busy schedule. The sessions are well designed and the trainers Larissa and Steph are excellent at modifying all sessions to meet the needs of each participant, meaning you are always sure to be pushed to your limits. I am not yet where I want to be fitness wise but I know I have the right team behind me to get me there.

I’m not someone who loves exercise and I really dislike gyms. I’m so glad I found Shine, I love the variety and fast pace and the environment is so friendly and not judgemental at all. I actually find myself looking forward to going. Thanks guys!

Lauren Brown

I am loving Shine fitness! I am not a very motivated person when it comes to exercise and after having a baby my enthusiasm was definitely lacking. The Shine girls were so lovely and so willing to modify sessions to suit my return after a c section. I love the fun vibe and the fact that every session is different! I am pushed to the limits but seeing great changes already. My little man loves the mums and bubs classes too! Can’t wait to continue my fitness journey with the Shine team!

Rachel Vanneste

If you want to get fit on the Sunshine Coast, with female only (sorry boys) outdoor training, join Shine! I love training with Shine Fitness, the trainers are amazing girls who provide personal training within a group environment. And, the other girls in the group are all so friendly and encouraging to train with.
