A Bit About Me

I begun my fitness journey back in 1984, joining South Hedland Fitness. Lifting weights. reading magazines, the appetite for health and fitness had begun.

In 1988 I enlisted in the Australian Army, Physically demanding role with ruthless military training. During time in the services I began doing boxing and martial arts, Muay Thai / kickboxing ect

In 1992 I left the Australian Regular Army, to spend time with my family. 1993 completed courses through Fitlink and registered with Australian Accreditation council ( later Fitness Australia)

People often associate fitness with pain not enjoyable. I believe it’s important to make training fun / stimulating, so my clients incorporate it into their lives . Through personalized training sessions , I deliver programs that are individualized and tailored to the needs of my clients.

I have been trained by Brendon for over 12 months. Brendon has demonstrated a passion and enthusiasm for personal training unparalleled by other trainers I have been to in the past. He has the ability to tailor exercises with increasing difficulty and complexity. His best characteristic is his ability to motivate you to work within your limits . His training sessions are enjoyable and dynamic. I strongly recommend Brendon as a personal trainer.

I have been training with Brendon for over six months and have received significant benefit through both his specific training and mental support. As a Business Executive in my mid-fifties, the challenge of balancing the need for stamina, tone and strength has been complicated by age and fitness. Brendon has achieved that balance through his supportive approach recognising my capacity to accomplish tasks, my areas of interest, adapting programs to suit and ongoing motivation.

Brendon has been a guest at Chisholm Catholic College for the past seven weeks. During that time he has taught the unit of Self Defence to our Yr 11 and 12 Classes. Brendon has delivered a fantastic program which the students have not only found challenging, but have also thoroughly enjoyed. He has managed to demonstrate these effectively for the students and in turn the students have learnt and replicated these techniques in real-life scenarios.
