History & Background

Jeff competed at an elite level for nearly 20 years, representing Queensland and Australia, both nationally and internationally. His first state cap coming in 1987 and final representation for Queensland in 2006. The years in between saw Jeff dedicate much time to training and enabled him to travel the world representing Australia. He has been part of several gold medal winning relay teams, from the Commonwealth Games in Kuala Lumpur to the Pan Pacific Championships in Sydney.

Jeff as a Trainer / Better Life Coach

As a trainer Jeff knows what it takes to achieve sporting and fitness goals. Because of his history as an athlete Jeff has the skills to motivate and lead people to success. Clients say that his relaxed approach to training makes them feel comfortable during their sessions, whilst his competitive side pushes them to achieve their fitness goals. Seeing people change not only their body shape, but also their overall lifestyle is what Jeff enjoys most about training his clients. He gains immense satisfaction in knowing that he can guide people and drive them to realise their health and fitness ambitions.

I believe that looking good is only a small part of what a training program should deliver. I want my clients to not only look good but to feel good and function better. I take this holistic approach to training to help clients grow in strength and confidence, ultimately building a better life!
