What makes me happy:
My lovely and supportive partner Belinda, family and friends, and my two gorgeous fur babies.
A typical mid-week and weekend day in the life of me is:
Working on new and fun ways to help people further their fitness goals, and taking time to relax and enjoy what I’ve accomplished thus far.
The best advice I have ever been given is:
You have to be selfish sometimes. Doing things for everyone else to make them happy can be draining.
Work on what makes you happy and you will be a better person for it and be able to help people out more as you have a more positive attitude towards things when you make more time for YOU.
My top 3 health and wellness tips are:
1. Get some sleep
Trying to function on no sleep is hard enough but one of the other effects of having bad sleeping patterns is you don’t have adequate time to heal and rest your body. This will inhibit your muscle recovery and increase stress hormones, not a good mix!
2. Eat real food
Where possible, make sure you are getting all your nutrients from a diet of wholefoods – avoid processed and packaged foods. Support your local community and buy local you can trust, or enjoy the rewarding satisfaction of growing your own vegetables. If you are time poor like most people, a vegan, plant-based supplement like Tao Nutrition is a great alternative when you are on the go.
3. Fat Loss, not Weight loss
Too many people out there are all about weight loss and are unaware that the term ‘weight’ includes total body weight, which is made up of body organs, bone, muscle, water and fat.
when we are aiming to tone up we are trying to reduce the amount of excess fat on our bodies and increase the lean muscle.
My favourite way to be active is, and I do this how many times a week:
I love playing beach volleyball! It is such a fast and energetic sport and you utilise all of your main muscle groups. I play 1-2 times per week and love every minute of it!
My most memorable achievement to date is:
Meeting a woman that was totally defeated by her struggle with her weight.
When we met she barely made eye contact and was very soft spoken. After 7 months of intense work she had lost 40kg and seemed to be a whole new person! Walking with confident strides with her chest up and eyes forward, talking to everyone who met her gaze. Every time I think back to that I feel a huge swell of pride.
Why I started to use Tao Nutrition:
I was using other brands that were making me feel sick and bloated, then my partner suggested Tao and I’ll never go back. I trust the brand, and trust it enough to recommend it to my clients as a way of promoting a more plant-based and cleaner diet.
Why I recommend Tao Nutrition to others:
Tao works for me aside from it tasting great, It enables me to practice what I preach.
I’m all about full food diets however when I don’t have the time to cook a nice healthy shake with all natural ingredients is my go-to.
How I use Tao Nutrition in daily life:
If I’m time poor in the morning it is good for a nutritious breakfast on the run. Other than that it makes up my in-between meal snack to keep me firing for longer.
My go-to meals and snacks when I am super busy are:
I’ll grab a handful of nuts, have a piece of fruit or have a delightful shake. Couldn’t ever say no to a simple strawberry shake with Tao Nutrition powder, almond milk and a handful of strawberries.
