From 107kg to Spartan Race Success
What I've learnt
I first started training in 2010. I weighed 107kg and I had a goal of reaching 60kg. It took 3 years for me to hit that goal. In that time, I learned how to persist, to take the good with the bad and just keep at it. I then decided to become a personal trainer myself and while I was the healthiest, fittest and strongest version of myself that I had ever been and more than happy with my new career, I found myself without a goal to work towards. I was training for the sake of training and I was getting bored. I signed up for my first Spartan Race at ANZ stadium in 2015. The moment I crossed the finish line, I knew exactly what my next goal would be... To race my way to the podium.As a personal trainer, I write programs for all my clients but when it comes to myself. yeah right! I was very new to Obstacle Course Racing and knew I needed a Coach with experience in OCR as well as a Coach who would work with me to build a program that was right for me, not just hand over of something generic. After chatting with Michael for nearly an hour, I knew I had found that Coach. I didn't hesitate to sign up for his online program and now he's stuck with me.
