A FEW WORDS ABOUT ME

Kiwi born I grew up in Tauranga. I moved to Auckland in my 7th form year to train for decathalon. I spent eight years competing in the decathalon nationally and internationally. I now spend most of my training hours training and competing in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I’m a blue belt at Tukaha HQ and love the technical element and the training environment. I have a Sports Science Degree but after buying my first home I wanted to learn more about property investment so I obtained a real estate licence and now I spend my time outside the gym doing commercial leasing. Due to my experience, I have applied my specialist knowledge and work largely for those in the health and fitness industry who are looking to set up, move or expand. ‘Boss’ (the Golden Retriever picture with me) is my best mate and we make regular trips to Tauranga and Matata to mow the lawns and visit my young niece and nephew.
I worked with High Performance Sport New Zealand for eight years as a Strength and Conditioning Specialist delivering world-class support to an array of athletes and sport professionals in swimming, cycling, yachting, as well as in netball, basketball, volleyball and hockey. I was the Head Strength and Conditioning Specialist for the NZ Breakers spanning the period in which they won their first NBL Championship in 2011, successfully defended it in 2012 and 2013 and reclaimed it in 2015.
I train a limited number of highly dedicated clients in Herne Bay and Auckland CBD and through my online platform train a range of clients around New Zealand with goals ranging from post pregnancy weight loss and qualifying fitness tests to injury recovery and long-term wellness.
My view is holistic and I recognise and understand first-hand the physical and mental barriers high performance sportspeople face. I consider the principles of frequency, intensity, duration, variation, specificity, recovery, maintenance, interference, individualism, progressive overload and autonomy in my training programmes and focus on educating, motivating, challenging and empowering my clients to get results they want. I’ve since developed Force X Velocity (FXV) to create unique and innovative opportunities empowering you to be the best you can be.

What they say about me
I had an ACL, MCL, medial and lateral meniscus repair surgery in may this year. Started my rehab with Steve in July. He is highly knowledgeable and a hands on trainer. Quite often he actually does the work out with me. We have been training together for almost 5 months now. Rehab 3 times a week and strength and conditioning twice a week. I’m already feeling stronger then before my injury and my knee has been improving consistently since day one. I couldn’t be happier with my progress and would recommend him to anyone who’s after serious training.
Steve really listened to what I wanted to achieve (1/2 marathon trail running events), pushed me to do a wider range of training and corrected my technique. I really appreciate his depth of knowledge and the way he explains why each exercise is important...it helps me stayed motivated.
I have been with Coach Stephen for a few months now and without a doubt I can say my overall fitness has skyrocketed. I needed his help to prepare for a selection course where I would be tested to my physical limits. His specific training programs helped me nail the course without injury. I can always rely on him to reply and tweak my program to fit with my schedule and how I am feeling. Can’t wait to see what else we can achieve.
I always have great work with FXV. Steve is knowledgeable and friendly. The workouts are well balanced with a range of exercises. He pushes me but still leaves me with energy to perform at my Jiu Jitsu training. Highly recommend it for injury prevention and improved performance!
Steve helped me prepare for and travelled with me to several international events over 3 years. We got my jumps and throws firing at the same time and I hit several PBs at Gotzis in 2011. I also qualified for the London Olympics and came first in the Australian Championships 2012 in Melbourne under his guidance. Steve pushed me to my limits and intuitively understood what I needed. I highly recommend him to anyone wanting to improve their performance.
Now that you know me, my team and our work, what are you waiting for? let’s start work.
