Im one of the co-owners at Buildabody Lower Hutt. I'm easy to spot in the gym as ill be the one chasing around his toddler son who spends most days at the gym with dad. After 15+ years as a PT, the last couple of years as my young family has grown my focus and role in the gym has changed dramatically. You will still find me stepping in to cover group classes from time to time, I largely leave the coaching up to our awesome team. 

I work more on the support & accountability side of things for our members. My background has been in strength & rehabilitation training. Over the years I've worked a lot in junior development as well. Notably for Petone Rugby & St Pats Silverstream sports academy & 1st XV. 

Even at the tender age of 40 and moving closer to my second decade coaching I still have a passion for getting in the gym and helping my clients achieve a greater lifestyle balance by simplifying training & nutrition.
