I started out in the fitness industry by doing a Fitness Leader’s course in Sydney, Australia in 1992. That lead to a job in the mining town of South Hedland, in the Pilbara region in Western Australia. From there I’ve travel the world delivering education to fitness professionals. One thing I have learned over the years is what we do every day has consequences to what happens the next day – good or bad. Being certified as an ACE Personal Trainer helps me relate to the ACE pros we connect with around the world."
