About Us. Experience, Expertise and Passion

We love helping people achieve their dream police jobs.

Prime Motion Training was started by Russell Kempster while he was an instructor at the Victoria Police Academy as a part-time venture but it wasn’t long before word got out and he was in high demand. He made a tough decision to leave the job he loved doing as an instructor so he could help others to gain access to a career which served him so well for more than 12 years.


Russell has been involved in the fitness industry since 1988 when he first started teaching karate classes to children. In 1994 he won the Australian Open Karate Championships, placed second at the Oceania Karate Championships and won a gold and silver medal at the World (WSKU) Karate Championships in Japan.


Russell is a registered personal trainer with Fitness Australia and is an accredited group fitness instructor, personal trainer and self-defense instructor. He is also a qualified workplace assessor and trainer.

Since 2006 Russell has helped literally hundreds of applicants with their preparation to join Victoria Police.


Russ spent 12 years as a police officer with Victoria Police. The last four years of that time was spent at the Victoria Police Academy as a physical skills instructor, where he taught everything from fitness to firearms.

He has trained police applicants, as well as recruits undergoing their initial training, experienced serving police officers and was even called on by Victoria Police to help train other would-be police academy instructors.


Russell is passionate about helping his clients achieve their dream of becoming police officers. Just speak to anybody that has trained with him and you will see just how much additional advice, guidance and help he gives and his passion is pretty clear for all to see.

Although Prime Motion Training specialises in helping police applicants, Russell’s advice and mentoring don’t stop once you get into the academy as many past members continue to call on him during their academy training for extra help. This is a testament to his experience, expertise, and passion for what he does.
