I’ve been involved in
Fitness since i was 3!
Hello I’m Stephen. Yes, I know, I’m punching well above my weight with Karen, ha-ha!
I started off playing football/ soccer until I was around 24. I played professionally for a year, then got released at the age of 18. After soccer, I got an apprenticeship as an electrician. I worked as an electrician for four years before getting a promotion to electrical estimator. During this time, I enquired about being a personal trainer in my local gym, but was talked out of it because it’s not a sustainable income, so I decided against that idea.
I worked as an estimator for 2 years and I then moved to Australia on a working holiday, travelling through South East Asia on route. I travelled through Australia and New Zealand for the next two years before settling in Brisbane.
At this point, I was really starting to resent being an electrician and I eventually thought “f*** this” and quit my job and started my Cert 3 & 4 in Fitness.
WHAT A GREAT DECISION!
Although I’ve been involved in construction for a while, I’m not new to the fitness industry. I’ve been training in the gym for over 15 years. My goals when I started were to get stronger and faster for football. After that, my training developed into managing weight after stopping full time football, which proved to be a challenge. I then tried some crazy ways to get into shape, including the usual suspects, cutting carbs, juice diets and high fat before learning that the simple things work best.

It’s through all these experiences that have developed me as a coach today. I can understand and see the problems that arise, and feel like I have a duty to help others on their journey.
My training now consists mainly of functional movement. I’ve been doing Crossfit for around two years now and I absolutely love it, although I know it’s not for everyone. I have recently started Ju-Jitsu as well which has been fun to learn, although I get choked out every week at the moment, that’s not so fun. My main goals are lifestyle related. I want to live until I’m 110 years old. I don’t just want to live, I want to be thriving at 110 years old, and I want to help you do that as well. There is so much life to live!
The way I program and coach my clients is all about finding things that work for them.
For example, I could write you the best 5-day program ever, but you can only go to the gym for 4 days, it’s not the best program for you! At the start there’s a lot of communication involved. I want you to ask me questions. Question everything. There will ALWAYS be a reason why something is in your program, so just ask me. I also understand that I won’t be with you forever, so I want to teach you what I know so you can take it and use it in future. I’m all about educating you as much as possible. Everyone is different, let’s find something that works for you!
