Trevor is one of our dawn patrol morning crew, religiously training at 0545 Monday to Friday. Proud partner to Amy and Father to Olivia, Trevor brings a disciplined and motivated influence to our coaching team. We caught up with Trevor to hear his coaches story.
Where do your passion for fitness and a healthy lifestyle come from?
In early 2015 when I found out my wife Amy was pregnant with our daughter Olivia I was really overweight and unhealthy. I started to think a lot about the type of dad that I wanted to be and knew I had to make some changes.
Around the same time, a friend of mine had made some changes to his lifestyle and had a transformation that really inspired me. He offered me a helping hand to do the same and since then health and fitness have been a huge part of my life.
Why do you coach, what motivates you to teach?
I love seeing people succeed in achieving their goals and being a part of that is so rewarding.
What do you think separates a great coach from a good coach?
I think a great coach is just as (if not more) passionate about you achieving your goals as you are.
What is the most rewarding part of coaching?
For me, the most rewarding part is seeing the monthly PR board getting filled up over the month. Being part of a team the offers the support and programming to achieve that is awesome!
What is something most people don’t know about you or something interesting?
Music is a huge passion for me, I've played the guitar for various bands over the years. Released an album and music video in 2011, and even took out the NZ final for the Global Battle of the Bands competition.
