I have always been a fan of sport and played basketball throughout high school, took up kick boxing afterwards, and weight lifting/body building in my early 20’s. Even though I was very fit and thought I was healthy, it wasn’t till I was diagnosed with an IBD that I realised there’s an emotional aspect to health which triggers us all if we don’t learn to take ownership of it and channel it for the better. I then decided I want to be a mentor and lead by example, so I studied personal training and youth work.

As a former player for the Australian Fijian Rugby League, my instincts and love of the game eventually saw me turn to the training of current players.
Being involved with AFRL (Australian Fijian Rugby League) as a pathway for our players leading to NRL teams. Being able to watch them grow and succeed in the sport has been a major highlight of my career.
This can also been said about weight loss challenges, where my guidance assisted in a positive transformation of clients' bodies and their overall lifestyle.

Your mind, body and soul are an entire unit that work together every day to get you through any task that you undertake. Health is a combination of all three of these components, so it makes sense that none of them can be left behind. To be healthy - Yes, it is about eating healthy and exercising regularly, but it is also about your thoughts and emotions. I love taking the holistic approach to health and bringing all avenues together

BEST EXPERIENCE WITH A CLIENT OR GYM MEMBER
I was working with spinal cord injury patients. These patients need to learn how to walk, brush their teeth and even clothe themselves all over again, as if they were learning it for the first time. I was working with a young woman who had not been able to walk in 2 years following an accident to her spinal cord. After 6 months of muscle activation for her muscles to be used again, of strengthening her mind-to-body connection and counselling her through the tough stages … she took her first step! Amazing is an understatement, a truly profound moment.
