Here at FreeRun we Do Fitness Different!
Just like many of you reading this, I’ve wafted in and out of being fit and playing sports. From playing Netball in school, to Action Soccer, to being a cardio bunny, and to my most recent addiction, squash. So where does obstacle course running come into this? Enter the Tough Mudder.
After working with a personal trainer for a couple of years, I wanted to try something different that would test my athleticism. Like many mothers of 2 young children who have stepped away from their corporate jobs for varying reasons, I’m guilty of assuming that since I don’t have the typical athletic body we see paraded in the media, the Tough Mudder became an item on my bucket list.
My mission with this was simple: prove to myself that I could do anything (well, almost anything) in this altering realm of functional fitness. Age, physique, background, personal circumstances, and all those other considerations didn’t have to be an excuse to stay ‘stuck’ in the typical humdrum cycle of box standard workouts. And so out of this, Free Run was born.
Now, whilst it may be nice to say that I have X amount of years in the fitness industry, with this-and-that experience, achieving this-and-that certification, I’m not THAT person. What I am, however, is a ‘consumer’ of all things fitness and health. And as such, my personal goals at Free Run are simple: to continue to breakdown the pre-conceived notion that only the young and fit can do this kind of activity, to emphasize that it’s never too late to start being healthier (no matter which avenue you choose), and you CAN play and you CAN have fun whilst doing fitness different!
To be honest, I started strength training purely for aesthetics. I was always naturally skinny, and like most teenage boys I wanted to pack on muscle mostly to fill out my shirts. My first routines were comprised exercises I read up on in fitness magazines, and whatever would best help me on my quest to make my shirts appear sizes too small. Eventually, training plateaus and personal injuries forced me to re-evaluate my approach. While initially frustrating, they ultimately served as opportunities to try and learn from different approaches, I sought after ways to find better balance in my own training regimes.
Exercise taught me disciple, challenged my determination and helped me build confidence in the strength and capability of my own human body. My goals, initially aesthetic based, had evolved to become more performance based as I sought to challenge myself and what I thought I knew about strength and conditioning. As a trainer and coach, this is at the core of what I believe and provide. I utilize a balanced training approach, taking what is necessary from bodybuilding, powerlifting, functional fitness, strongman and athletic training to build the right routines for the right people.
With 7+ years of experience, I take pride in finding creative solutions to work towards goals and around obstacles. I work with a variety of people in both group and private settings, including those with injury or specific considerations. I gravitate towards people who take their goals as seriously as I do, I believe effort and determination are the most valuable tools at your disposable. My specialty is in building general strength, conditioning and fitness; a wide base is a solid foundation to build on.
