Our Fantastic Team

Russell Phillips

Managing Director

True Body is owned and operated by Accredited Practicing Dietitian and Fitness Professional, Russell Phillips. Russell completed a Bachelors Degree in Nutrition and Postgraduate Diploma in Dietetics at Curtin University and Certificate IV in Fitness and Certificate IV in Massage, both at the Australian Institute of Fitness.

Russell is passionate about encouraging healthy behaviours within a happy well-rounded life. He believes that for any lifestyle change to be permanent, it needs to be a pleasurable one.

No-one just eats normal food. Everyone’s intake is so varied. What we eat is influenced by numerous things on a daily basis and we have to consider those influences, both the assets and the hindrances, when making behaviour changes.
