I believe that your body can stand almost anything. It’s your mind that you have to convince. If there is a Will, there is a Way.

I've always been fascinated and interested in Health and Fitness, Swimming, Cross fit, High-Performance Training, Circuit Training and General health and wellbeing.

My passion for Rugby led me to represent my country in Rugby Union and eventually to lead the Sri Lankan National Rugby Team.
I am currently following a Level 4 Diploma in Personal Training.

Daniel Riley

Fitness Instructor

I have always been committed to staying healthy and wanting to always keep fit that is why I always tend to spend my time in the gym putting in those hours, I play semi-professional 8ball/snooker and I play rugby for the local club here in Papakura.
My desire and passion are to see happy members and clients always with a smile on their face and for them to progress through their fitness goals and wanting for them to achieve them.
I also wish for them to always stay committed to the gym lifestyle and to never throw in the towel.
