Meet the Bulimba Team
TRAINS Strength & Conditioning, Technique correction, Sport Performance, Power Development and Programming.
LOVES Human movement, efficiency & performance.
Outside of the gym: How things work, 4WD-ing and exploring.
Leaving a “safe & secure job” in the building industry in 2014, I went off on a relentless pursuit of happiness. I wanted to find a field I am good at, and create a fulfilling career out of helping people. By no means do I see myself as the best of coaches, but I am committed to my continual studies and research to learn all there is to know about human movement and the improvement of quality of life. We were built to move!
TRAINS Rebuilding the broken and Golf Biomechanics
LOVES Tai chi qi gong yoga kettle bells and Indian clubs
In 2005 while studying psychology at the university in Galway, Ireland I chose to investigate the effectiveness of exercise as a treatment for Major Depressive Disorder. The bottom line clinically is it works…really well.
Inspired by the simplicity of the solution I qualified as a personal trainer to gain exposure in helping people move better to feel better. Fast forward over 12+ years and 14,000+hrs later and I’m still on the gym floor training clients because movement really is medicine.
I am dedicated to continuing my education and research in order to refine the best practice for consistency and accountability. I don’t claim to have all the answers but I do believe I have a competent grasp of the fundamentals required to assist those in need of help to get moving and gain confidence in their abilities.
TRAINS Strength and Conditioning, MetCon, Muay Thai style cardio.
LOVES Muay Thai, Squat/Deadlift/Bench Press. “Out of gym” fitness – hiking, stand up paddle boarding, rock climbing etc.
Five years ago I made the jump from a “safe job” to a passion by completing my Cert 3 and 4 in Fitness. Gym training and Muay Thai has been a major chapter in my life for the last 5 years and my life would look vastly different without it.
Over the last 5 years my training has stayed constant and I’ve not only seen the results I wanted for myself but have seen those results passed on to my clients.
Using Muay Thai for cardio, HIIT, functional strength and power lifting based movements in my programming – I believe it incorporates the best balance of hard work and fun to make training something you WANT to do not “have to do”.
The best feeling in the world is knowing you have put someone on a path that will lead them to a better life for themselves. Thats what gets me pumped in the morning.
TRAINS Body building, Figure and Sports Model, Powerlifting, Strongman Training, Rehabilitation, Group Training, 12 Week Challenge Transformation

Every athlete I work with has their own goals as well as their own unique limitations. If you have a BIG goal and would genuinely like to get there, I can make it happen. It may not be today, or tomorrow, but with the right advice, planning and preparation you will be well on your way in just a short time. My business BluePrint Muscle is about forming the foundation of your dream physique from the ground up. Just like any marvellous construction, you need a blueprint, a plan to make sure that everything is done properly and lasts a lifetime.

LOVES Extreme sports, traveling, food, training
The health and fitness industry is one of the hardest yet rewarding industries you could ever work in. I have been in the industry for 8 years now and have witnessed the high’s and low’s, and the exercise fads to go with it. But I remain as dedicated and passionate about the industry as i did 8 years ago.
There aren’t many more things more rewarding and satisfying then helping people achieve their health and fitness goals.

Having completed a 4 year degree at university, an exercise scientist has a thorough knowledge of the anatomy, biology, chemistry and physiology of exercise on the human body. Furthermore, a depth of understanding around how to train for elite sport and athletic development.

TRAINS Consistency, intensity, specific programming, measuring results and performance, nutrition, mobility, recovery and fun
LOVES Focusing on overall health and wellbeing
I have been lucky enough to be in the fitness industry for over 16 years now. During this time I have seen many fads come and go but the core fitness essentials remain the same for results to occur. Consistency, intensity, specific programming, measuring results and performance, nutrition, mobility, recovery and fun all need to be adhered to to achieve overall health and wellbeing.
As a young man the dream of becoming an elite athlete and a professional footballer looked likely. Unfortunately when I was in the final year of high school I had a major knee injury which required a reconstruction and a major clean up. After extensive rehab I could not get it strong or stable enough for the riggers of Rugby League so I had to give it away, I was devastated, although this has turned out to be a blessing as it gave me an opportunity to do work experience with the Broncos which kick started my fitness career.
