Like Boot It Taranaki!



Meet Gary

My story with fitness begun at the age of 10 when my parents took me to the local swimming club. Getting up five times a week at 4:30 AM to pack my bag and jog to the swimming pool put my mindset into “no-good-thing-comes-easy” mode really quick. Fun fact: my mum took me swimming because I was considered obese.

After a few years competitive swimming (and losing weight) I turned to Martial Arts and found my inner peace in Jiu Jitsu. It’s been more than 20 years I’m practicing Martial Arts, I can’t imagine my life without it. Fun Fact: in 2000 I hurt my back really badly during a fight, my doctor said I‘m not going to be able to lift or exercise anymore. I remembered that in 2002 standing on top of the podium.

I am a qualified REPs registered Personal Trainer (Level 4)

My philosophy

I am passionate about fitness and well-being and for me sport is not just elite athletic training, but part of maintaining a balanced, healthy lifestyle. Fitness has it’s pillars on systematic sets of exercises, balanced diet and a positive mindset.

The diet has to be in relationship with the person’s age, gender, BMI and unique body type. One cannot count only Calories or GI numbers, there’s no “magic food”; the diet has to based on reliable scientific evidence and has to be holistic, comprehensive.

The exercise has to be enjoyable, effective and safe for everybody regardless the fitness level of a person.

The most important factors are mental- the positive mindset, openness and willpower. Openness to accept new advice and instructions; positiveness to trust and to try new things out; and willpower for sustainability to maintain the fitness level.

I look forward to meeting you!
