I was born in South Africa and I have lived in NZ for 17 years. I grew up playing multiple sports in primary and secondary school. In high school with my spare time I participated in Kickboxing and during this time in the ring I represented South Africa on many occasions.

Then that’s when I started enjoying the gym, 10 years later I decided to take the training to the next level and for the last 6 years I have 

competed in bodybuilding .

Since then I have won 5 Nz regional, 1 national, 1 overall title and have two shows as second places. I have also competed in 1 professional competition.


In that time I’ve completed Advanced Personal training course leaving behind a successful career in NZ power systems to become a Personal Trainer.


Having spent years in the bodybuilding industry I have a lot of knowledge and experience to help people to be fit, healthy motivated, achieve their goals, and make genuine positive changes.
