Personal Trainer Spotlight
Hello, my name is Spencer. I am extremely passionate about Health, Fitness and Well-being. My dream is to help you become stronger, healthier, fitter and happier.
Achieving your goals and making long lasting changes isn’t hard, it’s just a choice but with so many different approaches out there which all contradict each other, it can be hard to know which way to go. Having tried and learned so many different styles of training and types of diets, I can make the hard part a little easier and show you the right way. All you got to do is GO!
I have experience and expertise in:
- Bodyweight Strength Training (Calisthenics)
- Weight Lifting + Power Lifting
- Primal Movements
- Structural Integrity and Stability
- Flexibility and Mobility
- Strength and Conditioning
- Chi Gong
- Holistic Lifestyle Practices
As a teen I was a heavy smoker, drinker and my diet and lifestyle was all but healthy. Until one day my brother said right, that’s it and took me on a run up a huge hill. After collapsing several times I threw up, purging myself of years of toxins; that’s when I knew it was time to change.
I started running weekly and my fitness grew dramatically. I also got into Calisthenics which is body weight/ gymnastics strength training. I fell in love. I got really strong and was able to do things like 1 arm pull-ups and lots of swinging, spinning tricks with ease! However I had a condition called scoliosis which means my spine was curved and created a deformation of my back. It’s as if the stronger I got the more it developed. I was extremely conscious about it and unbeknownst to me at the time it created mental health problems.
I decided to have an operation to straighten my spine which set me back to square 0 of my training and into the world of physiotherapy and rehabilitation. I started again, from the ground up and this really showed me the importance of structural integrity and stability.
As the years have gone on since then, I have slowly but surely built up my strength and ability to move. I’ve taken up arts like Chi Gong and Yoga, which’ purpose are to bring you closer to life or ‘reality’. I’ve learned to express myself fully through different forms of movement, sound and meditation harnessing my emotions and energies. I’ve practiced martial arts which has toughened and made me resilient. I’ve battled through various forms of fitness training. I’ve experimented with various forms of diets from veganism to ketogenic and even fasting only to find that the answer is simple. And of course I’ve continued with the Calisthenics strength training only re-enforced with a strong foundation and armed with new branches of primal movements.
It sent me on a journey of self discovery and mastery and I quickly discovered that this was my path. Not only to practice and master these arts but to share and teach them in hopes that people like you can learn and grow.
Please take this opportunity into consideration and I invite you to take action.
