A Bit About Me

My belief is that fitness should always be balanced with a person’s lifestyle to remain sustainable.

It should be accessible and enjoyable whilst being tailored to measurable and realistic goals.

I met Gareth 5 years ago professionally when I was preparing to summit the Kilimanjaro & reach the Everest Base Camp. After a few months of meticulous planning and training under Gareth, these goals were achieved and celebrated. Perhaps you have heard about the infamous Kokoda Track in PNG for its wartime history, Aussie heroes and its perilous trail, I am so proud to have accomplished the pilgrimage last week, once again after months of dedicated guidance and training provided by Gareth. Being a medical practitioner myself, I am so impressed by Gareth's knowledge in human anatomy, physiology, biology and his professionalism. I strongly recommend Gareth to any organization. With best wishes

Gareth has been my personal trainer for 5 years. We started working together after a significant injury I had. He has helped me tremendously and from the beginning was able to adjust the exercises to my needs and wishes. I have been exercising with Gareth weekly for a while now. He is professional, reliable, punctual, and flexible. He pushes me forward but not in a way that is not enjoyable. I quit before when my threshold is often not realised by trainers. On personal level, he is a delightful and intelligent person to work with and our conversations are always a source of relief from the busy work/life I lead. I recommend Gareth without hesitation.
