Meet Our Coaches
I have been in and around the health and fitness industry since 1996, working in commercial gyms, council run gyms, delivering corporate health and wellness programs and the owner and founder of GOPT Group Personal Training since January 2013.
My journey through adulthood has given me a wonderful opportunity to learn about human behaviour. Through my own personal challenges with alcohol and drugs, I have learned what it is like to rely on substances to manage my emotions and how I feel. By choosing a life of sobriety, currently 6 years clean and sober, I have established a life that is filled with joy, peace, laughter and serenity, and I have a toolbox of ways to manage myself effectively in most situations without alcohol or drugs. Today, I love my life. I am fitter, stronger, healthier and happier than I have ever been. I am 44 now. I am working on being even fitter, stronger, healthier and happier by the time I reach 54. One day at a time, I will enjoy the challenge of constant and never- ending improvement.
I am married with 2 young daughters 8 and 5 and I cherish the challenges that comes with these gifts. I have created a system around living, that has become known as “THE GOPT WAY”. It involves managing well what is within our control. Our sleep, nutrition, mindset, physical training and connection with good quality people. The GOPT way stems from 2 decades of coaching people and getting clear on how we need to impact multiple areas of our lives to achieve long term positive change, these are also the areas of my life I continue working on in my recovery from alcohol and drug abuse. 2 decades of coaching and my own personal challenges helped me become clear that work on each of these areas can help anyone who wants a better life. If we want our lives to be better, we need to become better.
Being able to deliver our Coaching program “The GOPT Way” gives me a real purpose, brings me immense joy and is an opportunity to celebrate, on a daily basis, a life I am extremely grateful for. I love what I do and I love our GOPT Fitness Family.
