“I was an overweight teenager, below average in sporting ability, academics and had very low self esteem. One day when I was 16, still not knowing why, chose to act differently to what life provided me with. I chose not to let bullying hold me back, I chose to exercise in my bedroom using my school bag as a dumbbell. I set out to prove to those who degraded me academically and physically wrong.”
“Since that day, I have strived to better my self at every opportunity and my life is built around 3 key principals:
1- To remain curious - Ever expanding my knowledge in business, science, physics, philosophy, emotion and experiences.
2- To remain noble - Ensuring I have a selfless objective within every aspect of PB Sports Performance and to help others feel as energetic and passionate for life as I do now.
3- To lead by example - By doing so, empowering others with the belief that they always have a choice to make things better.”
