What you often see with the fitness industry, group classes and standard personal trainers is a very convergent way of looking at the body and thus the individual. When talking about nutrition it is recommended to count your calories, with strength-training its all about the reps and increasing your weight and with sleep the focus is on hours of sleep.
All of this sounds great but there's one major problem; we are humans and we live complex lives, everything affects us one way or another. The above mentioned approach just isn't working for us.
Whenever I see an individual I see connections, I see a husband/father/employee/man, I see a human. What this means is that all these roles you play heavily effect you.
When I work with you we will get to know one another, I will assess how you respond to stressors and make you more capable of dealing with the problems in your own life.
Being active has always played a large role in my life, as a kid I was always outside and doing stuff. My sport was judo and later on that turned into kickboxing and Jiu jitsu.
I myself have gone through the stages of depression ridden puberty and anxiety prone adolescence but exercise was always a way to keep it under control.
After having been in the army for three years I decided to get into exercise physiology and movement science which is where my passion for exercise really took a hold.
Now that I have moved to Australia with lots of time to study and experiment I have come to some profound conclusions in terms of the control I have over myself.
Nothing makes me happier than reading a good book on health, coaching individuals, being outdoors and connecting with friends and family.
I'm relentlessly passionate about what I do and that is living.
Everybody serves a purpose in life; to support one another.
My purpose is to be a foundation to others, to stand with and lift others up
I act from a source of plenty.
I breathe, get to experience and have grown up protected and loved.
Life is not easy, it is not supposed to be.
Adversity is the great mentor.
