After becoming interested in exercise as a teen athlete in a number of sports, at the age of 18 Daniel moved onto a career in the Australian Army as a paratrooper. Following his training, Daniel was deployed on active service a number of times and enjoyed the mental and physical rigour that came with the realities of armed conflict.
The fascination with human performance Daniel developed during his time in active service inspired him to pursue a change of careers within the military, moving on from the Infantry to become a physical training instructor (PTI).
As an army PTI Daniel served in a diverse range of roles including recruit instructor, training support for Special Forces and as a trainer in clinical rehab. The ultimate objective of each role was to better prepare soldiers for the hard realities Daniel had experienced himself.
Never one to brush over a topic of interest, Daniel threw himself into learning everything there was to know about moving, eating and living a healthier and stronger life.
During this transition, Daniel undertook internships with a range of global leaders in the health and fitness industry. He has benefited from working under the guidance of Mark Buckley, Paul Chek, Charles Poliquin and Dan Baker, just to name a few.
Since leaving the military in 2006, Daniel has been involved in training and improving hundreds of peoples’ quality-of-life.
Daniel has worked as a personal trainer, strength and conditioning coach for professional athletes, personal training manager and as a leading educator of other personal trainers.
Daniel considers himself to be a product of the great mentors he has worked with and believes that it is his responsibility to share the invaluable knowledge he has to offer with all his clients.
Daniel has written a number of education courses and continues to mentor and develop fitness professionals. Daniel is an expert in strength and conditioning and is passionate about making exercise not only effective, but a lot of fun.
