Results Room Personal Trainer


From humble beginnings at The New Zealand Institute of Sport I used this entry into the industry to build on my passion, dedication and knowledge of the human body and self-improvement. I embrace the philosophy of Keeping it simple because it always works and I promised myself never to patronise a client in favour of “fitness fashion” because I believe it is the result that counts most not the entertainment.

Constant up-skilling keeps my “tools sharp” with many additional courses and continued education within my field over the years.

The majority of my time has been spent in management over the years, which has been very rewarding in terms of helping support up and coming trainers, but I have always gravitated back to that 1 on 1 interaction of personal training.




Arthur Jones and Mike Mentzer have been truly inspirational in their no nonsense approach to physical enhancement and I follow their teachings in my own journey.

My career in this industry has been one of cherished memories over the last 8 or so years, I have had the privilege of helping many find strength, confidence and pride within themselves, I draw inspiration from those around me and love the “banter” between trainer and client.



A long and fruitful competitive career in Taekwondo kept me active for over 15 years and taught me the importance of “sweaty sessions” to keep the balance of health. I followed other forms over the years to expand my martial art portfolio and also keep my interest.

I’m currently interested in Bodybuilding as I find the ability to change the human form fascinating and hope to maximise possibilities with this new passion.

Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.
Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.
And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present;
the result being that he does not live in the present or the future;
he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.

I firmly believe in practising what I preach and would never show a person an exercise that didn’t maximise productivity.
