About Me

I am a strength and conditioning coach based in Bunbury, South Western Australia

I have been training with and coaching kettlebell use since 2005.
Having received instruction from Steve Cotter, Vasily Ginko, Phil Kourbatski, Ben Minos. Rick Ravensdale and Don Stevenson, I am one of Australias most experienced kettlebell instructors.

I am a regular presenter of Australian Kettlebells workshops, Australias leaders in kettlebell education, to members of the general public and fitness professionals looking to get expert instruction to pass on to their clients.

In addition to current full time work with the West Australian Football Commission where I manage youth AFL talent and development program's and coach education I also run my own strength & conditioning business

Specialising in strength & conditioning for senior and youth athletes

I work with a wide range of clients, from professional and amateur athletes to members of the general public. I practice what i preach in training and nutrition

My training philosophy is based around
  • Long term athlete development
  • Hard work using programs that work
  • No fancy gimmicks
  • No gimmicky exercise equipment
  • There are no short cuts or magic bullets or potions to achieve the results you want
  • Sound nutritional practices
If you want to realise your athletic ability or you're truly genuine about making real changes to your lifestyle then i can help guide you towards the results you want.

Kettlebell training has a strong presence within most of our programs and with good reason, they work! We are however not so ignorant to believe that kettlebells are the only tool to use, we also utilise other "alternative" equipment.

  • Free weight training
  • Sandbags
  • Bands
  • Boxing
  • Olympic lifting
  • Kegs
  • Plyometric drills
  • Sleds
  • Extreme bodyweight exercises
  • Ropes
  • Tyres

All programming is tested before it is unleashed on clients. I do what i preach
