My journey into health and fitness began when I saw a year 12 graduation photo of myself and I felt like I’d let myself down. I was about 100kg and had put on weight throughout high school but finally enough was enough. I joined a gym with a close friend of mine and for once in my life, I felt like I was achieving something I began dropping weight and training more and more, eventually, my friend stopped training but my passion only grew more. Another friend saw my results and asked for help, we began training together and he started achieving great results and I really enjoyed helping him. My passion for training was obvious so I got qualified and got into the personal training scene. I love helping anyone who is serious about getting into shape and wants to transform themselves physically and mentally to become the best they can be. That’s my passion.
Hi guys! I am an exercise physiologist with 3+ years of experience working as a personal trainer and also multi-level sports conditioning coach with a love and passion for soccer. My life has always been very active and fitness related as I have played soccer my whole life and also basketball (until I realised I was too short) and I also spent a few years doing athletics. My sporting history is what has lead me to a career in fitness and rehabilitation as I have always been looking at ways to improve my on-field performance and after gaining knowledge on how the body works I also worked out that this is the career I love and want to be in.
I have experiences in clinical rehabilitation including seniors, workers compensation and sporting injuries, these include; arthritis, osteoporosis, diabetes, muscle strains/tears, ACL and shoulder rehabilitation.
My time as a personal trainer helped me to hone my skills and gain a wider understanding of how the body works as I dealt with a lot of different shapes and sizes. I have really found that there is no one size fits all solution to any goal whether it is fat loss, muscle building or athletic development. For this reason, I take a measured approach to training and programming to each person’s needs to ensure they get the best results possible.
The most important thing I have learned through my studies and experiences is that you need to think of the body as one big chain, if a link is loose, weak or overworked then it’s going to impact on the rest of the chain and in our bodies case, cause injuries. Due to my belief about it being one big chain, I will always look to train the body as a whole looking to hit the big visible muscles as well as the tiny little stabiliser muscles that keep everything working properly.

Personal Fitness Trainers – Are They Worth It
If you’re thinking of engaging a trainer and perhaps you’re still on the fence as to whether you should or shouldn’t then let us help you with some answers to the following questions which I hope will help you make a decision either way.
Should I Get A Personal Trainer?
The answer to this question is Yes…chances are if your reading this right now, its highly likely that you need help in some way to get you from your current state or situation to a point where you can start to feel happy about yourself again or achieve a goal that you want to achieve. In fact no matter what the goal whether it be fitness, financial, business related, we believe every person needs a trainer, mentor or coach in some capacity to help them achieve any type of goal in life. A personal trainer can help put the missing puzzle pieces together so that you get the complete picture, they can help guide, motivate and support you through the highs and lows of your journey. Before engaging a trainer though its good to ask yourself some truthful questions to gauge your level of desire & motivation. Are you sick and tired of feeling or looking the way you are? Are you ready to make that change no matter what? Are you willing to put in the work to achieve your goals? Do you think you will need help along the way to keep you on track? Are you prepared to follow the plan that is created for you by the trainer? If you answered yes to two or more of these questions then I think you are ready to take that step and engage a personal trainer to help you.
How Much Difference Does A Personal Trainer Make?
In most instances the difference between having a trainer is massive. It sometimes is the missing link between you achieving your goals or you not achieving your true potential. If you look at any professional athlete whether they are part of a larger team or not. There is a common denominator amongst all of them. Behind all of their success, its the team of coaches, trainers & support personnel that help those athletes perform at their best and get the most out of themselves. This goes to show that no matter what the goal and no matter if your a beginner, intermediate or professional, we all need coaches and support to help us achieve what it is we want to achieve otherwise it is a long and lonely journey.
How To Find A Good Personal Trainer…Are They Worth It?
Absolutely…they are worth their weight in gold. In fact, having a good personal trainer on your side has the ability to fast track your results. They can do this because as you go along a good fitness trainer is able to customise and adapt your training as you progress and set the right intensities & frequencies to get the most out of your training hence maximising your results. A good trainer, however, is only as good as the client, a lot of people simply think seeing a trainer 1 or 2 times per week will guarantee them results but their actions outside of the gym will ultimately play a bigger role in whether they achieve or not. If a client is willing to put in the work and diligently adhere to the program set down by the trainer then success if pretty much a guarantee. If however, a client expects they can eat whatever they want, train whenever they want and not follow the plan set down by the trainer outside of their session times then the likely hood of them achieving their goals is very slim no matter how good the trainer is.
