About 5 years ago I decided to step away from the corporate world and pursue a healthier lifestyle and hopefully career.
This decision lead me to HPC, where is studied and completed my Cert 3 & 4 in Fitness. It was great to see that even after 25 years of training and competing at an international level in Sport that I was learning new and important things. The mixture of theory and practical components in the course really assisted with my learning experience and retention of knowledge.
After completing my course I put my new skills to good use Personal Training and Managing a gym for 2 years, then deciding to move forward and Purchase my own gym. I chose to purchase and existing gym in a great location which I could Remodel and Rebranding. So Express Fitness at Burleigh Waters has become the Fresh, New MOD Fitness 24/7.
When I was looking for a name for the gym I wanted something that would hopefully appeal to the public but also had meaning for myself and would help me to strive to make my business a success.
I didn’t want the name to be long winded, so I looked for a short name that could also stand for something. After trying a lot of names I looked at what point of difference I wanted my gym to have and that was a Modern Approach to Fitness where we look at not just Physical Fitness but also Mental Health as well, (which will become more relevant in 2019 as we complete one of the gyms focal points).
The second meaning behind MOD is in Memory of a lady that has been a great influence and someone that has always help guide my career choices. My Mother Dianna who sadly passed away two years ago from cancer, hence MOD (Memory Of Dianna). I couldn’t think of any greater motivation to succeed in my new business, than Honouring my Mother’s Memory.
I currently have one HPC Graduate Personal Training at MOD Fitness 24/7 and I am always interested in speaking with present and future graduates of HPC.
