he is 26 years old and is an avid kick boxer and martial arts lover and has been for over 11 years. His keen interest in this sport along with his own health and fitness journey led him to become a personal trainer so that he can teach others to live a healthy balanced lifestyle like he has.
Liam was an active child growing up and competed in field events such as shot put and discus and frequently played soccer. When he reached the age of 10, like many of us do, sports became less frequent and hobbies such as video games and trips to fast food places with friends became more enjoyable.
This feeling of enjoyment however didn't last long. It led Liam to put on weight, have very low energy levels and lead a fairly sedentary lifestyle. He knew something had to change.
At age 15 he was introduced to kickboxing and started taking classes at a local club. 9 years on his love for kick boxing had grown strong, he had completed in 13 amateur fights and had joint a local gym to work on his strength and hypertrophy to improve his kick boxing technique and skills. In doing all of this Liam went from 115kg down to 84kg and feeling a lot happier in himself, with increased energy and confidence.
Unfortunately when Liam turned 20 he sustained an injury to his spine, he had to take 8 months off all training. Although this was tough for Liam and he did regain some of the weight he had lost, his body was strong enough to bounce back although his mindset had now changed.
Liam's main focus now is not competitive fighting but improving his strength to prevent further injury from happening in the future.
To this day Liam trains for 5 days a week for 90 minutes a session. His main goal is to be the strongest, healthiest version of himself that he can be. He slowly gained 11kg of lean muscle through his training and currently sits at 95kg where he is very happy.
Liam is currently teaching our Men's strength programs, kids Martial Arts programs, group classes and one on one sessions.
