about Scroopy's HiiT
Making A Positive Impact
Getting in shape shouldn’t be a punishment. It’s an amazing and empowering lifestyle decision that anyone can make. I believe in finding the pleasurable side of fitness; and while there may be a sore muscle or two along the way, the benefit of fitness is worth the discomfort. I have developed my training regime by working with a variety of people, and always love adapting my program for the beach.
We are a registered COVID Safe business.

Really Shiit gear
“Michael gets the best from people. With the right balance of discipline and encouragement he works with all types of people to improve their performance. In my experience, Michael is the doyen of high intensity interval training and a genuinely nice guy!”
“I have been training with Scroopy since winter 2014. 5 years! His SHiiT sessions have become the foundation of my training routine for improving fitness and maintaining weight. What keeps me coming back is the variety (HiiT, sand running, hill running, swimming, biathlons and more) plus a great atmosphere. It's a very diverse group but Michael has a talent for challenging each of us while keeping the sessions tough but lighthearted. There's not much better feeling than getting off the beach and watching the sunrise after a great workout! Highly recommended.”
“I love Scroopy’s’ SHiiT sessions. They’re challenging, addictive, energetic, varying and fun, but most of all my fitness over the past 5+ years of attending his sessions has improved exponentially. Scroopy will challenge you, motivate you and whip you into shape. I can highly recommend his sessions. SHiiT really works”
Scroopy epitomises “trainfullness”. If you want to achieve a goal in fitness he will motivate, guide and drive you to get there. There is also the advantage of the Pacific Ocean which brings its own embedded energy. Will always love training with you Scroopy!
“Scroopy’s, as we affectionately call it, is an institution - a motley crew whipped into shape by our leader who happens to be the fittest 50 something I know is just inspiring and awesome - we start early - we train damn hard - and we have a lot of fun on the way - there is no better way to train than at the beach at sunrise - and you know that Michael is always bringing the best in training science to the group so all you have to do is follow the lead - I’m in the best shape of my life - it’s the best.”
“SHiiT, what a game changer! Scroopy’s skill set, knowledge and steely determination exact challenges for each individual in the ShiiT group. Shiit becomes “See How I Improved Today!” as we track and see our own progress. Coupled with the inspiration of Scroopy is the mental health benefit of that warm embrace that the camaraderie of your training group delivers. Go SHiiT!”
“The SHiiT training group expertly led by Scroopy is an exciting and engaging way to keep fit and work out with a fun group. The mental health benefits of regular structured exercise and a strong social network are very clear - especially for older men - “the masters”. See you on the beach!!”
“Honestly, the best beach sessions and training with Scroopy... Why? Because SHiiT is excellently planned and put together and it has made a huge difference to my fitness levels. Love the banter and the humour within the group too!”
“What started out five years ago with a small group of people wanting to continue to keep fit over the winter months training on Coogee Beach, has evolved as a group of amazing friends and being the fittest I have ever been. I may be consistently at the back of the pack but continue to turn up in the freezing months due to the people and the laughs we all have as well as Scroopy (laughing at Scroopy too) putting us through our paces.”
