About Our Studio

The Fitcorp Factory

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.

Since then, I have turned my focus to training other people, including natural body building and figure competitors, some who have gone on to win a number of state and national titles. My unique training style has evolved over the years and I have a key emphasis on achieving complete wellness, helping people achieve their health goals on both the inside and out.

My philosophy is simple – I believe in creating lifetime changes. In order to do that, you must first develop a strong mindset, which will help create a strong body. Drawing strength from my own life experiences, I use EFT (tapping therapy) to complement my physical training techniques, and I have achieved powerful results.
I help dispel the myths of fad and low carb diets, and teacs people how to increase their metabolism and become a fat burning machine. Combining healthy eating with weights and high metabolic training techniques, I will show you how to transform yourself into a lean, strong, and happy individual.

I have over three decades of experience and have helped hundreds of people in this time, to successfully transform their lives.

Most importantly, what makes The Fitcorp Factory unique is the ‘family’ of clients who train there. We provide a safe and supportive environment where people can be themselves. We welcome people of any age, with any body type. No matter what your goals are, our family at The Fitcorp Factory will help you achieve them.
