My name is John Volonakis, or most people know me as Jay Vee, and I’m the director and founder of the Fitcorp Factory. As a coach, father and personal trainer, I’m extremely passionate about health and fitness, and I love helping to empower and change people’s lives in a positive way.
Located at Unit 2 / 35 King Road in Hornsby, The Fitcorp Factory is a training studio aimed at transforming people, both inside and out.
In my mid 20’s, I was forced into the gym due to football injuries, and like many other people I read magazines, books, and listened to all the media hype of how I should train and what I should eat. It wasn’t until I started training with my natural body building coach Tony Tsompanellis, that I learned how to achieve the best training results. After only a year of training with Tony, I won the NSW Novice competition. Tony then moved to Townsville and started Empower and I continued my journey doing many courses within health and Fitness including getting accreditation with ISSA (International Sports Science Association). I continued my body building journey on my own and enjoyed great success at the elite level, winning the NSW ANB U70kg Australian title and East Coast overall title, and in the process I not only learned how to successfully transform my physical state but I also learned a lot about myself as an individual.
