I was born in the Philippines and spent a few years living in the UK before making Australia our permanent home.
As a child, I was fascinated with basketball. I trained for the National League while in the UK and, when we moved to Australia, I joined the Youth Basketball League for the Melbourne Tigers. Unfortunately, I tore my ACL and saw my basketball aspirations end. However, I didn’t let it keep me down. I switched gears and became a personal trainer, with the goal of helping others recover from injuries and enhance their function and mobility at all ages.
I’m now a qualified personal trainer and AIPT facilitator in Melbourne. I work as a trainer at Goodlife Health Clubs Taylors Lakes. I do my best to bring enthusiasm and passion to each session. Outside of my professional life, I strive to be a loving husband and devoted father of two.
I was inspired by my own experience through fitness rehabilitation after my own injury. My ‘why’ became about helping others recover and grow. Now I strive to help others find their own ‘why’. It will serve as motivation to put in the time, early starts and long hours.
Being able to bring the best out in someone is highly rewarding. Witnessing a client’s journey, growth and seeing the challenge themselves beyond what they believed possible, makes what I do worthwhile.
I was enticed by the idea of helping future personal trainers. I’ve been in the industry since 2009 and have helped clients of all age demographics, this experience goes beyond what a textbook can tell. I believe I can help instil the confidence students need to launch their own successful personal training careers.
“Seeing my clients become stronger and more resilient – mentally as well as physically – and able to perform/move more efficiently day-to-day as well is seeing them prioritise health in all seasons of life is so rewarding.”
