Why did you become a personal trainer?
I have always been active and enjoyed sport, being active and the great outdoors. I saw personal training as a logical way to combine my enjoyment of these into a career that I could help people to feel great about themselves and be active.
What do you love about working with Revolution?
Helping people work towards their goals, getting to enjoy the great outdoors & being part of a great team of trainers.
What is your earliest memory of being active?
Running the 200m little athletics when I was 7, I thought I was going to win the race right up until everyone passed me at about the 100m mark.
What is your favourite exercise?
What is your favourite piece of equipment?
My medicine ball, it is so versatile and can be used for just about anything.
Where is your favourite place to workout?
Maribyrnong, the running track is a great place to go for a run and there are a few playgrounds around to have a great resistance workout.
What is your training philosophy?
With a little hard work and dedication, anything is possible!
How do you unwind after a long days work?
Go to the gym, surfing, watch a movie, catch up with friends.
If you weren’t a personal trainer, what would you be?
