We often view “athleticism” as something sport related and actually if we head over to the dictionary definition (the physical qualities that are characteristic of athletes, such as strength, fitness, and agility.) then we are quite right in our presumption. However look again at that definition and the words “Strength, fitness and agility” and I ask you the question… "are these not qualities required in the corporate world if we are going to perform optimally.” I will continue with some questions which I hope spur thoughts for you leading to actions. “If being physically fit enhances mental clarity and performance and mental performance is required to succeed in the corporate world then shouldn't we be putting more onus on physical fitness.” "If being physicall...

Who Am I?

I am an entrepreneur, motivational speaker extreme athlete and coach. With a clear vision of making peoples lives better through health, culture and environment, I have developed and established two successful businesses, including international performance company, InnerFight; and Paleo food provider, Smith St Paleo.

With a competitive sporting background, I played professional rugby from the age of 18, with a major highlight being my participation in the 2009 IRB Rugby Sevens World Cup. Retiring from the game in 2010, I moved to CrossFit and endurance challenges which I still take part in and love.

I believe that developing mental strength through physical challenges is one of the keys to a successful life and have multiple challenges and ultramarathons to my name including: 30 marathons in 30 days in 2018, 250km self-supported across the Sahara desert in 2015, 230km self supported through Kenya in 2019, crossing the island of Corisica on foot with 13,000m of elevation in 2018.

In 2018 I was served up a truly amazing experience when I was training to set a world record in ultra cycling and was hit by a truck at 65kmph resulting in the biggest fight I had ever had, the fight for my life. I looked death straight in the face and decided it was not for me. (check out my documentary here)

My experiences in these challenges and my near death experience has helped me coach; numerous athletes ranging from ultra endurance events to just being able to run 1 mile, from those looking to find their purpose in life to high levels CEO’s.

Prior to establishing my first business InnerFight, I spent 10 years in the sporting goods industry, with over five years as a sales director at market leader, Adidas and my final year at Nike.

Hire Me To Speak

“Motivational”, “thought provoking”, “inspirational”, “forward thinking” are some words that my audiences have used to describe my talks.

From 50 people to 500 people, from kids to adults, I have had the privilege of speaking and motivating audiences around the world with a simple vision of making their lives better through sharing my experiences, my take on life and how I looked death in the face and decided to live.

My TED Talk is short and powerful bringing together the 9 months from when I nearly lost my life to running 30 marathons in 30 days.

At schools I inspire children to live, something I think we often forget to do.

In December 2018 I shared my “30 Marathons in 30 Days” experience with a sell out audience at InnerFight’s “InnerTalks”

“Lessons From The Desert”  gained me international respect as I shared my lessons from 2 years of running over 2,000km across some of the worlds most brutal deserts.
