The majority of personal trainers are in their 20’s, myself included. Sometimes this can blur the lines of how to most effectively strength train.

What works for people in their 20’s isn’t optimal for those in their 40’s. 

I’ve seen it too many times, a young trainer has...

After years in the industry, I’ve noticed many of us learned how to train by reading magazines or watching videos online. Maybe you just joined your friend in the gym and started following their program.

And it worked for a while…

Until it didn’t.

That’s how I got started...

There’s something I need to get off my chest. 

I hate exercising.

Only some of the time. Like yesterday, I had a lower body workout planned and there were a million other things I’d rather be doing. Watching paint dry was one of them.

I really didn’t want to train.

But I d...

A wise man once said,

“Summer bodies are made in winter.”

It might have been Gandalf. Or Donald Trump. Or maybe it was Jay-Z.

I don’t know 🤷‍♂️

But I do know whoever said it is right on the money. Progress is made over months, not weeks. The best time to start working tow...

Hiring the wrong personal trainer can be a huge waste of time and money.

I'm not the best for everyone. I can comfortably admit that.

We might be a good fit. We might not.

The truth is, there are thousands of personal trainers in Sydney. Each one is unique with a differen...

It’s NOT about a number on the scale.

It’s NOT about what your friends think.

It’s NOT about chasing an Instagram-worthy physique.

And it’s CERTAINLY NOT about how that girl in yoga pants (who you've never even talked to) looks at you.




Everything else is out...

There are two types of people in the world:

A. The ones who relentlessly stick to the basics.

B. The ones who major in the minors.

One achieves greatness, the other dwells in frustration.

The longer I continue down the career path of 'health and fitness' the more it become...

It's damn cold outside...

Winter is here. With rain pattering against your bedroom window, darkness lulling you back to sleep and the snooze button tempting you with loving 'click me' eyes, you'd rather stay snug under the sheets than face the day.

But, you've got to go...

Like a lion at feeding time, you're hungry for results. 

So, the body isn't what it used to be. A little stiffer in some places and a little rounder in others. You want to lose the gut, feel dominant in life and look like Hugh Jackman in a suit. Time to do something abo...
