Natura Fitness is a culmination of my life experiences. As an athlete, researcher and someone that has always thought a little outside of the box, I have always questioned and sought out new alternative ways of achieving my goals.
Not bound by current trends, Natura Fitness is an expression of something that I have innately sought out. That is, to NOT specialize in any one specific movement pattern. In fact, Natura fitness emphasizes varied and dynamic movement patterns.
I found that throughout my life I could never really specialize in any one sport. Often criticized , I was told by my peers to focus on one sport and career, as this specialization would bring me success. However, I found that this specialization in fact limited me and handicapped me at a spiritual, emotional, and physical level. A specialization at the physical level became very mechanical and like mechanical objects I would soon experience mechanical problems. As soon as I varied my movement and added dynamic patterns I would no longer experience the same physical problems. Much like my body, I found that by following these principles at the emotional, spiritual, and Nutritional levels I have been able to help many people achieve a balance and harmony in their bodies.
A lover of all things physical , I always felt best when expressing myself through physical movement. I started my competitive sporting life at the age of 5, playing junior soccer and Futsal. I played right up to the age of 17-18 competing at State League level and against many future national soccer stars at that time. I , however always enjoyed playing a variety of sports excelling at Rugby, cricket, swimming, athletics and Cycling
My passion for Cycling began at the age of 12 , after witnessing the Australian Pursuit team take out Gold at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic... I soon began cycling, and soon started track racing in the summer months while playing soccer in the winter months. That was until I turned 18 and gave up soccer and completely immersed myself into competitive cycling. Throughout the early 1990’s I raced extensively with various Sydney Clubs at State level, got a top 10 overall finish at the Australian University Games along side legendary Tour De France Green Jersey winner Robbie Mcewen, which subsequently led me to a season racing in Italy with a local team in the Abruzzo region. Never content with the one sport, I soon took up Triathlon racing, racing my first in 1988. For over 25 years I have raced extensively on the Road, track bicycle races, Triathlons, ocean swims and running races.
Natura Fitness ultimately aims at assisting you achieve a holistic balance at the emotional, spiritual, nutritional and physical levels.
Emotional: Here we address the laws of flexibility and the laws of choices, and how emotions attach to beliefs.
Spiritual: Here we address creative and expressive choices, allowing you to align with your passion compass and again the impact it has at the other 3 levels.
Here we address seasonally adapting to the bodies needs. Vegetarianism and Paleo all have their place. We also address the bodies PH and its impact on the body.
Only by addressing all 4 segments in a holistic manner can a sustainable balance be achievable.
