"After putting in so much dedicated effort to training and diet, you need to make sure you show off on stage what you’ve created, to the best of your ability, that’s where Rose comes in! My sessions with Rose were invaluable and gave me the confidence to step on stage and knowing that I was giving it my all. Rose’s guidance and tips helped me secure 2 x 1st place wins in my first ever competition! Apart from that, Rose is one of the friendliest, most lovely women in the industry and you’ll have fun along the way.

Emma Petchell


2015 INBA Australian Championships 3rd place Short Class Figure

."After a rough first year of competing I knew if I was going to get back up on stage I needed to find the perfect fit. After spending most of my first year competing staring at Rosa-Maria Romero's abs on the wall at Riley's Gym, a friend got me in touch with her. And from the first conversation she made me relaxed and confident that being back on the stage is where I wanted to be. Rosa had me loving training again and enjoying the process. Although we hit some hurdles along the way, Rosa- Maria always had confidence that I would succeed. This first season competing with her as
both my prep and posing coach saw me take 3rd at the Australian Champs, but most importantly for me, bringing my best package by far!
Rosa is professional, approachable, genuine, kind, passionate and determined and has driven me to only want more!!!! This is only the beginning and I cannot wait to see what the future holds with her by my side as a coach and as a friend!"

"After spending months searching for a trainer, Rose came highly recommended by Kathryn Magnus. This was the best decision I made in my 1st season of competing. I started training with Rose in November 2014. She set all my training and nutrition programs. Her knowledge, dedication and encouragement throughout this journey has been overwhelming. I hit the stage for the first time in March and My achievements in season 1 have been so exciting and having Rosa by my side the whole way gives me all the strength I need to set the goals even higher. Thankyou xx"

"I instantly took a liking to Rose on first meeting her. She is so sweet natured and amazing at what she does. Having been thrown a hige curveball in my training, Rose provided me with the boost that I needed not only through her thorough posing sessions but also using her wonderful life coaching skills and empathetic shoulder. All thanks to Rose I went from strength to strength and I got up on stage and claimed 1st place in my bikini category. Her posing coaching is the most graceful I have seen and I'm so grateful to have been taught by her. Her sessions are always so thorough and she won't let you walk out the door without having gone over and over each pose until perfected. I can't recommend Rose enough."

"Rosa, I cannot thank you enough for your coaching! I felt so at ease knowing exactly what I had to do on stage even down to when to flick my hair, and how long to hold my poses for. I have already been asked to help other girls with their posing and have referred them to you. You will be seeing me again soon! Thank you so much for everything xx"

"As a first time Sports/ Fitness Model competitor, I knew I needed Rosa-Maria Romero as my posing coach. From the first time I saw her on a web video competing, Rosa had such a great confidence level and stage presence, greater than I've ever seen! From my first posing lesson to my last, Rosa was completely professional and was such a great coach! She had the ability to correct my poses in a manner that not only made me look better, but made me feel confident up on stage. With the help of Rosa's posing guidance I was able to place 4th at the ANB Asia Pacific
for my first competition against 35 girls. I now have a solid foundation and am more confident than ever with my posing and stage presence! Thank you Rosa!"

"Competing is my passion. I needed someone who shared that passion to help me get ready for my next comp & that was Rosa. I had read about her in many articles & was really impressed with her competition history. The training program Rosa gave me really showed me the meaning of the word 'challenge yourself' something I thought I was already doing. Rosa's program has changed my outlook on training & helped change my shape. My condition was great on the day, something I am truly grateful for. I also had Rosa help me with my posing. The time we had, Rosa showed me some really subtle yet important changes which made a big difference to my stage presence this time. These changes have brought me confidence & determination to strive higher than before.... Thank you Rosa."

All your posing lessons, continual feedback, encouragement and friendship, resulting in my success today. Your input as my Posing Coach has been invaluable to me. Very, very grateful! Thank you.

"Meeting the the famous Rosa-Maria has been one of the most exciting moments in my life, not only to meet an IFBB PRO but to also have her critique my physique has been a dream. Since seeing Rosa my posing has gone from armature and sloppy to feminine, clean, fluent, strong and has no doubt helped me take out the WFF Australian title and overall Figure Champion for 2014. I would travel two days just to see Rosa. I will continue seeing Rosa till the end of my career and I hope to some what match or come close to her successes. Could not recommend anyone else in the industry"

"Rose is truly one of the most genuine, inspirational, motivating, nurturing and lovely people I’ve ever known. She is quite simply, a star. She really cares and invests her whole heart into what she does. I feel honored and blessed to be able to call her my coach and mentor. She has been such a remarkable support to me, and also such an inspiring part of this crazy goal of mine. I’m so excited to keep her with me on my journey as I move back to the United States. “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars.” I should be so lucky."

"Absolutley amazing!! I didn't realise how important posing and stage presence was until I competed in my first fitness. I was recommended to Rosa after being self taught to pose. After 2 sessions with her I come home from the Australian Titles with a Trophy! Her passion, knowledge & professionalism is Absolutley mind blowing and I can not recommend her enough!"



Ling Ling Yuen


2014 INBA Figure Class 1 1st place

"I have never imagined I will ever meet Rosa-Maria in person and yet learn my figure posing from this expert. The first time I met Rosa, I was star struck; however, she was so friendly that made me feel comfortable to learn my figure posing from her. Rosa paid attention to details to every single poses that I needed to present on stage and she ensured I practised with her until it is perfect. Rosa made posing easy to learn, she also made me understand how to be muscly but yet sexy! Despite Rosa have three children to look after and many clients to see, she went out of her way to ensure I had the best presentation on my competition day.  She contacted all the people she knows to ensure that I have the best make up and tan on the day. Rosa is inspirational and a true champion to learn from and I highly recommend Rosa!"

"Having my first posing class with Rosa was definitely nerve raking, posing with such an amazing competitor was such an honour! She not only helped me hit my best poses ever, but the way she helped me pose made me see my body like I never had before! She gave me confidence and constructive cristicism. With the help of Rosa and her one on one posing classes I was able to take out 3rd place in my first ever INBA Bikini Competition! I was absolutely stoked! Rosa isn't just an amazing posing coach, but an amazing human being, and I'm now so blessed to be able to call her a friend."

"I entered sports model for the very first time at Nationals in 2010. I was clueless as to what i was meant to do on stage and ended up placing 13th. I did two more shows after this and improved in each one, winning the Sports model title at the Sydney Championships in May 2011. I set myself the challenge of entering into the figure division for the National Championships. I sought out Rosa to help teach me how to compose myself on stage, and to bring out the best in my posing. Rosa was extremely helpful and took me through step by step of what i needed to do in order to show off my physique in the best way possible. After placing 13th in 2010 National Sports Model, i managed to place 3rd in the National Novice Figure category for 2011. Rosa's guidance in posing increased my stage confidence and i recommend her to anyone! Thank you Rosa "


Jessica Thomas


"Working with Rose is fantastic! Her programs are so comprehensive and detailed it's hard not to understand! Within the first two weeks of her program I started feeling and looking better instantly. It all comes with hard work, but if you ever need anything, Rose is on hand to answer any questions or give you any support. Thank you so much Rose."

"When I met Rosa for the first time I immediately felt a warmth and very uplifting positive energy from her! No body is perfect and I know my weak areas very well. Rosa spotted them straight away and knew exactly how to emphasize the good areas, disguising the ones I needed work on! It took me only two private sessions with Rosa to feel confident about myself and to learn the moves that I would be required to model on stage. I competed against 30 girls who were 10 years younger than me and to my surprise, I placed 3rd!!! I can't thank Rosa enough for the work she has done with me. I appear quite often in front of TV and camera. The knowledge I gained from Rosa is absolutely crucial in my industry. I would recommend anyone to see Rosa not only before a competition but also before any photo shoot or acting. Good posing will always make you stand out at any event."

"I first came across Rosa in her column in M&F Magazine and Oxygen. I had been dreaming of being a figure competitor for a few years, having been training at the gym since high school. If I was going to do it, I wanted to give it my best shot. So I took quite a long time to decide who my trainer/coach would be. I read as many articles as I could find about Rosa and how she trained herself and what type of food she would eat for comp prep. Everything I read made sense to me and it was then I knew that Rosa would get me there! Even when I suffered a minor setback about 10 weeks out from my comp, I was shattered and I thought my comp prep was over, Rosa adapted my plan and assured me that we could still do it. That meant the world to me, just knowing Rosa was there to support me all the way. Rosa is the best Australia has to offer when it comes to figure preparation and body transformations. A true professional and a genuinely caring person. Thank You Rosa xx"

Vanessa Regetas


2011 ANB Central Coast Sports Model

"Well words simply can't explain just how AMAZING Rosa is! But I am going to give it my best shot anyway.I decided to train for Sports Model division 11 weeks ago and wasn't sure if I would be lean enough in time. But I never had Rosa train Me for a competition before and when she assures you she can get you lean in time she damn well means it! It was the best figure I have ever been given and I have competed in a few competitions in previous years entering the figure category. Her knowledge is out of this world and the support I received from Rosa throughout the process was priceless. She is an Inspiration and breath of fresh air to say the least and If you are deciding to enter into the world of bodybuilding or just simply want to sculpt a new you then Rosa is the way to go! You will not be disappointed and I assure you it is money well spent! "

"From 63kgs down to 58kgs and this is only the start! I'm absolutely thrilled to be part of Team FITCHIX and can't wait to replace this pic with my first comp shot in the very VERY near future! Thanks so much Rose, you are easily the best trainer in Sydney! Professional in every way, you've not only gotten me amazing results but you've always done what you said you'd do when you say you would do it everytime without fail! You have a client for life! Thank you for your guidance and support, it's priceless. I can't wait to see what I can achieve with your help in the fitness world! xo"

"Although I have only been training online with Rose for a short while the results have been fantastic. Looking back at the day one bikini shot I took for Rose I can hardly believe it myself. Rose has been responsive and caring to my individual situation even though I am not interested in
becoming a competitor. I am so thankful to her for her ongoing support and her help with supplements and nutrition as this has enable me to achieve my goals sooner than later. Rose is very approachable, and answers all of my questions thoughtfully and promptly. It is awesome to have a professional opinion at your fingertips with no question being seen as a "stupid question". I love your work Rose!"

"Thanks Rose for your inspiration in getting me started into this sport, encouragingme to get on stage for the first time and introducing me to people and a world i am enjoying so much being apart of. Heres to improving and future competitions."


Stella Lascaris


"It's without doubt that Rose possesses a wealth of both knowledge and experience necessary to make your goals attainable. But above and beyond the training and nutrition Rose provides something that very few can...and that's the encouragement and positivity required to make you believe that your goal as distant and as "far fetched" as is may seem can be achieved! Given you posses a degree of both determination and motivation something in which no one else can provide, you can have confidence that Rose will provide you with everything else necessary to make
your goals a reality! I will be forever grateful for her ongoing support thus far and her confidence in my underlying potential!"

"I have been training with Rose since April this year and in just that short amount of time I have had some amazing results, my body has changed so much in only 5 short months. I am competing in my first figure comp in September this year and I was starting to think I would never get there but I am now certain of getting up on that stage and being in the best shape of my life, thanks to Rosa's expert knowledge and support. Not only have I had fantastic results under Rosa but I have met some awesome girls as well to share all the highs and lows of my experience, it has been a great support network and the best decision I could have made."

Emma Winning


"Rose is someone who I greatly admire for her achievements, dedicated approach & professionalism. Knowing that my contest preparation was overseen by a highly successful international competitor gave me a great deal of confidence and enthusiasm whilst working towards my goals. Thank you Rose."

"The first time I met Rosa-Maria I was overwhelmed by her encouragement. I was feeling the pressure of competing and she believed in me and showed me my potential. That year I placed 2nd in the NPFC/IFBB Australian Titles and won the NSW division. Her attention to detail with posing, presentation is next to none. She is a professional in every way."

Jules Constantinidis


"Rose is a very encouraging and enthusiastic trainer. Every time I had a question related to my training or diet, Rose would email me back within a few hours - which encouraged me to train even more. Rose's training programs and diet program are really assessible to do and I think if you really want to achieve the results, then you can achieve these - with a wonderful and supportive trainer, who will be there to guide you along the way. Thanks Rose - your a Star!"

Noela Basile


"Rose is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to training and nutrition. She has been coaching me online to my first ever body sculpting competition. Rose is always available if I want to ask questions, she monitors my progress regularly, and is a source of motivation and encouragement during those times when I feel a little flat. I have been coached by Rose for a couple of months and I cannot believe the changes in my body - and look forward to more to come over the next few
weeks. I encourage anyone who needs professional and accurate advice with regards to fitness, training and nutrition to get some online coaching from Rose - it is an investment in your health and your life."

"I just want to say thank you for all your help and advice while I trained and competed this year. When I was bigger, I always dreamed of getting up on stage and competing but I thought I would never be able to loose the weight and follow though. I managed to loose 6 kilos on my own and with your help, i was able to get rid of another 5 kilos for a total of 11 kilos. Even after having two kids, I got up on stage, stretch marks included and strutted my stuff for all to see. Now the competing bug has bit and I can't wait to complete next year and blitz it. Once again, thank you so much for guiding and being apart of my dream."

" Rose taught me the step-by-step professional, elegant and advanced stages of posing, how to compose myself on stage, entry, exit and stage etiquette. My physique changed remarkably through the personalised diet and specialised training she guided me through. Rose contacted me every few days to monitor my progress constantly adjusting both to reach the best possible physical result in the time she had to work with. The service she provided was second to none and I have absolutely no doubt it was thanks to Rose that I placed 1st in Tall Figure Miss North Coast & 2nd Ms Figure Australia as well as being awarded the encouragement trophy."

Rosa and I am so proud to be part of your team!"


Samantha Williams


I have been training with Rosa-Maria Romero via on line training since November 2009. I only wish I lived closer to be able to train with her. Rose is always very prompt and professional in her feedback. I am always checking up on her latest competition progress and photos on the Fitrose
website (this is a great motivation for me). Although I have knee complications which prohibit me from doing any lower body workouts in the gym she has managed to keep me motivated and focused on my goals. More importantly I am still very happy with the results so far. I have always
wanted to have a go at this sport and Rose has given me the support and the knowledge to do this. Her programs are very specific and tailored to suit my needs. I love having the diet support, which can sometimes be the most challenging part. I am so excited about working with Rose to meet my
competition goals at the end of 2010.

"I have trained with Rose now for over a year and there isn't much more to say than she is the best! Rose helped through the entire competition plan from putting on muscle to leaning up for the Nationals. She is reliable, professional and boy she knows her training. She is my mentor and my inspiration. I will continue to train with her by distance from Aukland."

Sofia Larkin


"Rosa is an inspiration to female bodybuilding. I have been following her progress and competitions for some time now. I am hoping she will get me to where I want to go whether it is in competing again or just being in the best shape that I possibly can. I hope to meet Rosa at one of her shows.
Keep up the great work - I think you are awesome!"

I went on to win the WNSO/ANB Sydney Sports Model contest out of 21 girls! Rosa is the bomb and along with many other competitors, I am inspired by her in every way. Without a doubt she is Australia's number one Figure Pro and a great ambassador for the sport. Thanks Rose, I am honored to be one of your FITCHIX."

"Dear Rose...I will always remember the fire in your eyes when getting me prepped for my next show. It takes a very special person to leave her important work on short notice and come to the aid of a competitor and client, when it comes to the crunch. Your example as our highest ever ranked Australian Competitor is a wonderful lesson to us all. As I have now reached my next level of achievements, and with you by my side, I have just taken 1st place the NPFC/IFBB Figure (Tall) Sate Championships & NPFC/IFBB Australian Championships for 2009. Please accept my sincere thanks.......Jodie Parker"

All our sessions were fun and laid back without compromising on intensity and value. She is passionate about her sport and her enthusiasm is contagious. After all our time together I would definitely consider her as a friend as well as a trainer. Rose is a skilled business woman and an inspiring athlete and the best is yet to come."

Rosa has set the benchmark for female figure competitors in Australia and has lifted the dynamics of posing & presentation to an art form. Across multiple federations her competitors are easily recognised by their poise, presentation and grace. I would not consider my training plan to be complete without the careful and considered advice & guidance of Rosa. It is an honour to be coached by such an inspiring athlete and woman."
