My Story

I've had my fair share of a beaten up muscles and ego.

Played rugby for 22 years, skied since I was 12 all over the world from NZ, U.S and Canada to the Alps, competed in High school Basketball and Volleyball, Skateboarded (actually still do), Mountain Biked, Road cycle raced, Bouldered and Learnt Kite surfing in Brazil, to name a few.

Two torn Meniscus, Ankle and Knee surgery, Thoracic Disc injury, maybe a torn shoulder (still not sure) and to many sprained and strained joints and muscles to remember.

Why did I want to be an Athletic Development Coach?

For me, it is always about helping that young rugby player I once was with the areas of being an athlete that I didn’t get any coaching in, the areas that would have made a huge difference to me as a player.


Working the way I do now with players in youth, colts, senior rugby and across other sports, I wonder how much better I could have been, Instead of training to be a contact athlete, I was training more like a bodybuilder, so much was left on the table physically and performance-wise. 


It wasn’t until later when I became a coach, did I realise just how much of this puzzle I had missed … and this is where I want to make a difference in your training.


I see too many young, amateur, and aspiring players influenced by people with the gift of the gab but no substance often giving poor advice, exercises based on looking good and not actually improving their performance or worse trying to follow professional-level programs that have taken the top 1% of elite athlete’s years of training to get to.


I built this to help you progress under the watchful eye of a coach who cares, and wants the best for you, not to churn out cookie-cutter programmes.
