How long have you been training? 7 Years

How did you get started in the fitness industry?
I played rugby my whole life, injured myself at 19 and the gym was my rehab, since then I built a passion for lifting. 


Why do you train?
My ultimate fitness goal would be to get on the cover of a fitness magazine, and to win a Muscle Model competition. I train because I like pushing my body to its limitations to achieve something I thought was impossible.

Who are your fitness idols/inspirations?
My fitness idol is Buck Shelford. Captain of the 1989 All Blacks. He would always leave the field bleeding and bruised, rushed to the doctor mid-game and came back to finish. To me this is a huge sign of mental toughness and is an attribute I have always admired. Whenever I’ve had a tough day/ training session I think of his strength and it helps me to believe I can get through whatever’s challenging me.

What does a typical training week look like for you?
Monday: HIIT Cardio, and legs.
Tuesday: Back, thirty minutes cardio.
Wednesday: HIIT Cardio, Chest.
Thursday: Shoulders, arms & thirty minutes cardio.
Friday: HIIT Cardio, Legs
Saturday: Back, thirty minutes Cardio.
Sunday: Hour fasted cardio (post cheat meal), Chest.

What is your favourite body part to train?
Chest is definitely my favourite body part to train, I enjoy bench as its my strongest exercise.


What is your motivation every day to train?
Im motivated to get on a magazine and place at WBFF.

Have you had any obstacles or setbacks towards achieving your goal physique?
Back injury when I was 19, and I had a hernia operation when I was 22. #Makeithappen #noexcuses
