Welcome to Natura Fitness It's Nice to Meet You!

My philosophy: 'Live to Inspire'

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.

Background

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

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.
