MEET EUAN. His mission is simple, to open your eyes to the benefits of functional training to long term health and lifestyle. If you’ve got a goal to achieve, Euan is the man to help you smash those goals and have you saying “what’s next?”. Here’s a look into how Euan works with his clients to unleash their inner athletic potential.

WHY DID YOU GET INTO PERSONAL TRAINING?
I want everyone to be able to experience a stronger, healthier and happier life. That’s what makes us human and I truly believe that we all have an inner athlete that desires to feel this way.  So as a coach, I have a passion for finding out what that inner athletic potential is and then working with clients to unleash it.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE THING ABOUT PERSONAL TRAINING?
The high fives when the guys achieve their goals is really something special. It’s the simple things that make each day amazing. I work with a lot of rehab clients and there is nothing more rewarding than watching them overcome hurdles, become stronger and ultimately achieve feats that they would have never thought possible.

WHAT IS YOUR FITNESS GOAL?
Three of the goals I’m excited to be working on with my team right now are:

  1. MARIA who is aiming to complete a Pacific open water swimming race next year in Hawaii after tearing both her rotator cuffs. This super human is in at 5:30am every morning and I’m pretty blown away by her commitment even with a few setbacks.
  2. YARA who is training to compete in the Powerlifting IPF Juniors. She’s only 21 and is aiming for a combined total of 320kg across her bench deadlift and squat in her first meet.
  3. My “Mardi Gras” physique transformation squad. Brian, Damo, Kyle, Chris, Trent, Rodrigo, Juan and Julien who are going to look even more insane this year than they did last year. Stay tuned.

INTERESTING FACT ABOUT YOU…
True story – I  went to Hogwarts (George Heriot’s School) back in Scotland. JK Rowling wrote the Harry Potter books in the cafe across the street. You can google it and have a look. Sadly my guys can’t rely on magic when it comes to training or results, they put in the hard work.
