He didn’t find the sport of weightlifting until his teenage years which led him down the road of Power Lifting, Olympic Weightlifting and Kettlebell Sport, but he soon found his passion for helping people achieve their goals soon outweighed his own desire to win and has since devoted the last 10 years of his career to inspiring others while working out of various commercial and private gyms.
Progressing his career skills by attending various courses in business, marketing, teaching, advanced nutrition and more, he found that he not only had an insatiable lust to learn, but also to teach and pass on what he himself had learnt. This lead him down the route of in-house teaching and mentoring. He has never looked back.
I have been privileged enough to teach in-house Kettlebell Courses and Mentor several young trainers new to the world of commercial gyms, helping their business mature and grow and become self sustaining.

It was Charles Darwin who once said “It’s not the strongest species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one most adaptable to change.” I have always found this quote to be very inspiring. It made me realise that in order to keep progressing not only in my career, but also as a person, I needed to adapt and change the things I could, accept those I couldn’t and have the wisdom to know the difference between the two.
While my passion will always be in fitness, competing and becoming the best I can be I also have a flare for poetry, and since discovering this have become a published poet. This came about by entering a random online comp, and the rest as they say, is history.
