Give us an overview of how you got started...
I was a junior Queensland and Australian soccer representative until serious knee injury and following ACL reconstruction, forced me into the gym for rehab.. Right from then I loved resistance training and when soccer was no longer an option due to my injury, the transition to the gym was 100%. I have never looked back or wanted to do anything else.. Competing came at a later date and was never my primary reason for training… I just loved lifting weights.
