Head of Sports & Fitness

Many might be surprised to learn that Coach Chris is a former architect and construction project manager. Before pursuing his passion for sport and fitness, he had completed his Masters in Project Management at UTS, and his daily life was on the construction site. He's always had a passion for sports though; from dabbling in soccer, golf, boxing, tennis, to competing as a national swimmer and eventually falling in love with the game of basketball.  

His obsessive interest and passion for human biomechanics led to him finally pursuing his USA Basketball Gold Coach License, Certificate III & IV in Fitness, Certificates in Dealing with Knee Injuries & Conditions and Pre & Post Natal Training with FIAFitnation and soon after, ​Kettlebell certificate with Fitness Education Online. He is also affiliated with Fitness Australia and a licensed USA Basketball Coach.
