With this it reignited my passion for training, and I wanted to help others experience the same new healthy lifestyle I'd adopted. So the following year I left being a full time tradesman working as an AV site supervisor to pursue life as a full time PT instead! In 2012 I became an MAX'S Challenge Ambassador for the 2012 challenge. In 2013 I opened up my own PT studio in Port Melbourne called One More Rep and have had up to 10 PTs training from the facility, and have had hundreds of clients walk through the doors to better their own lives! In 2013/14/15 I was given the role of being a Challenge Coach, for the MAX'S and Maxine's Challenges! Then In 2016 I was lucky enough to be given the ultimate role of being the new Master Coach for the Challenges! As you can see entering the challenge really did completely change my life, and all for the better. I know it sounds cliché, but it has been the best thing that's ever happened to me!I've been lucky enough to be part of the MAX'S family for over 7 years now, and have met hundreds of amazing and inspirational people in the industry, including all the champions that have made their way through the past challenges! I now get to go to work every day and do something I absolutely love and enjoy. All whilst helping people lead healthier lives, as well as guiding and coaching thousands that have entered the challenge over the last 5 years... It really has been a dream come true, and one I hope to follow for many more years to come! Setting my goalsWhen it comes to goal setting, making your goals small and achievable work best. Weekly or monthly goals, help make the overall task at hand seem far less daunting, whilst also making it less likely that you'll throw in the towel. For me I had broken down the 12 weeks into 4 smaller goals or milestones. This way I felt that they would be easier to reach, and also more fun and rewarding at the same time!
