Waikato | PT for Snap Fitness Te Rapa, Hamilton

Full time Emergency worker on the frontline and a part time personal trainer at Snap Fitness Te Rapa.

I've been in the fitness industry as an athlete, judge, and personal trainer for 20 years. I love bodybuilding and am currently on the main judging panel for ICN this year during my off-season as well as a ICN Posing coach.

I have a huge background from being an ex-long-distance runner for the NZ Army competing nationally and internationally, CrossFit level 1 coach and competed at a National Level from 2012 to 2014, I competed in powerlifting between 2015 - 2018 at 75kgs under category where I achieved my best lifts to date being.

  • Squat - 190kg
  • Deadlift - 220kg
  • Bench - 130kg

I have always had a huge passion for fitness and to always help others in their fitness journey. I believe the best step in the journey is to have a strong mindset cause once that is achieved anything can happen.
