My First Time
I remember being on my first practical internship in a community hospital in Sydney, Australia.
I was in front of a patient (let’s call her Mary) who had returned from surgery a few days prior. Mary was in need of some dietary advice to help her recover faster as she had broken her neck of femur (hip bone joint) and needed to get back on her feet as soon as possible.
After going through Mary’s medical notes, we spoke about her dietary needs and current medical condition. We discussed, revised and negotiated a personal plan for her. Finally, after our consultation I was successful in helping Mary to improve her diet in a nutritionally sound way. I felt good about how I’d helped her and she did too. Before we parted ways, I gave Mary a plan to follow so that she could grow healthy again when she left the hospital and returned home.
My mentor who was there observing was also delighted that I finally made a difference in someone’s life and from that day forward I made the leap from being just an “intern” into being a health professional. It was the first time I was successfully able to make a difference in someone’s life in a real world setting.
Fast forward to today and I’m happy to say that I’ve helped hundreds of people improve their lives much like I did with Mary. Although I’ve spent more time in the health and fitness industry and with sporting teams – the feeling I get is still the same as I did in that hospital room with Mary. I’ve helped people lose weight, get stronger and fitter; I’ve even helped national athletes become international athletes and more recently, international teams become championship winning teams! It’s been an amazing journey and I want to continue to help more people transform their lives.
My priority has been to help people transform their lives.
To keep my personal touch – in the busy life I live – I’m only able to take on a handful of clients at a time. I want to focus on giving a select group of individuals my utmost attention with a personalised coaching experience.
I wish I could accept all inquiries, but I want to make sure those I’m working with are taken care of to the best of my ability.
After you complete my “hire a coach” application process below, I’ll be in touch within 24-48 hours. We’ll have a brief discussion together and then we will start our journey together via online coaching or, I will point you in the right direction to start your health and fitness path with a few options to choose from.
