“We are much more than Personal Trainers”
OWNER / PERSONAL TRAINER
I help men and women of all ages find their strong. I help mother’s re connect with their bodies after pregnancy; encourage and educate my clients that being strong is empowering for mind and body; challenge attitudes of strong vs skinny; and I give the aging population the strength to move and live with confidence and a sense of independence. I have also successfully competed at National Body Building Championships, coached award winning bikini athletes, changed the lives of many clients who thought that pain was just a fact of life, and given countless people the tools they need to live a happier, healthier lifestyle. Find your strength, find your why and I promise you’ll never look back.
EXERCISE SCIENTIST / SPORTS NUTRITIONIST
If you are here reading this, you likely want to know a little about me, but more importantly you probably want to know what I can do to help you or if we might get along. A little about me: I like coffee, food, training and high performance.
I am an exercise scientist and accredited sports nutritionist with a passion for helping others to optimal performance. My passion as a trainer is coaching CrossFit athletes to be fitter, stronger and more powerful, sprinkling some gymnastics and mobility on top. So if I can help you find that performance mindset all whilst learning how to eat delicious food and achieving your goals, come in and chat – I’m sure we’ll get along.
Hi everyone, my name is Joe, I am the boxing coach here at EOS and I also work with several members of the EOS community on a ‘one on one’ basis.
My own journey into the realm of health and fitness started out many years ago, playing team sports from my mid-teens until I was in my mid-twenties.
I lived and worked in South Korea where I discovered Hapkido (Korean martial arts), and I had to take training a bit more seriously if I were to acquire the skills that I needed to pass my gradings. Enduring training sessions in subzero conditions or doing the arduous stretching routines or the kicking drills that took skins off the balls of our feet and killed the nerves in our shins. I persevered because we found the ‘fun’ in our training.
Eventually though I came to realise that all forms of training are simply about improvements, to become the best versions of ourselves. Training in boxing, like martial arts, requires us to engage in multiple modalities as it involves all aspects of fitness. It requires strength, agility, flexibility, aerobic and anaerobic endurance, explosive power and most importantly it requires mental agility, to be able to make the best decision to react to any given situation. Personally, this type of training is the most satisfying because it teaches us to move with grace, balance and poise, to be conscious of where our body is in relation to space and time to be able to coordinate our body to transition between movements seamlessly.
My passion is making fitness training enjoyable, but with an added emphasis, that training is essential for longevity and vitality as well as quality of life. There is a strong relationship between exercise and positive mental health and wellbeing.
I believe training is also about discipline and commitment to show up and get the job done and along the way we get rewarded with friendship, a sense belonging to a community where we learn new skills and acquire knowledge and a place where we discover what we are about.
In one of the Aliens movie Prometheus, David the Android said ‘Big things have small beginnings’, let us be inspired to continuously get better.
