What inspired you to enter the health & fitness industry?
A love of life, people, fun and positive energy, music….. and all the amazing benefits that health and fitness provides….I have yet to find any other industry/tool that can provide what optimal health and fitness can for one life.
It has always been of primary importance (and by primary I mean the only thing I can exist within) that what I spend my life doing (career) have significant impact on the community in a 100% positive manner. The health and fitness industry for me provides all that and more…… I like to refer to it as the “supporting/coaching fellow people to become better versions of themselves and becoming a better version of myself in the process” industry….but that does not quite roll of the tongue 🙂
Describe your training style?
Functional, for performance and treating the person as a complete being. Whilst I definitely appreciate the human body in an aesthetic form….I appreciate it a whole lot more seeing it in action…..whether it’s dancing, playing sport, playing music, gardening, hiking or other pursuits….I love being able to move my body and perform well in my chosen areas and love helping others do the same.
Every single person has a unique body, mind and spirit and whilst certain parameters are the same…..how we develop those individually and at what time is completely different. My goal is to provide a high level foundation/base level of overall health and fitness for all and then from there “push” things further on an individual preference/level.
I approach workouts as a training ground for life. As such I believe we need ongoing and regular work on all the foundational basics continually building more and more strength in all the key movements (to provide a stronger and stronger flooring and support)…we also need regular challenges ranging from mild to extremely challenging to allow for complete and ongoing growth as individuals.
Full body movements with a penchant for high intensity, short burst and highly efficient workouts. My goal in workout design centres around achieving optimal results in as short a time as possible, minimising injury risk whilst making it fun and progressively challenging at the same time.
What impact do you wish to make in the health and fitness industry?
To inspire and coach individuals to feel awesome and bring people together.
To provide and inspire a genuine and authentic approach with individual satisfaction as the number one goal.
Motto for Life?
People are amazing.
Everything is relative.
Your attitude and beliefs are everything….choose them wisely.
