Achilles graduated in 2021 from Massey University with a Bachelor’s degree in Sport and Exercise, majoring in Exercise Prescription and Training. During his time at Massey, Achilles worked with a range of people, all with different goals and requirements. Ranging from football teams, to those looking to gain muscle size or get in shape, rehabilitate an injury and clients who have existing medical conditions.

Achilles’ method of training stems from his belief that each client should have some type of personal connection with their trainer and get along well together. He believes that comfortability and enjoyment will nurture and promote focus, motivation and in turn, success.
