Hello, world

A boring disclaimer, of sorts

All that follows in this blog is intended for informational purposes and should not be construed as medical advice.

That being said, I will take great care to pass along information that I consider well-researched and scientifically-valid. The accompanying thoughts that I share will represent my personal interpretation of the prevailing literature, supplemented with anecdotal, experiential data.

I will do my best to avoid them, but mistakes will be made, and i'm ok with that. I can only promise to correct them as they present themselves and strive to be better.

I welcome all feedback, where appropriate.


Going back a little while

Over the last several years I have immersed myself in everything related to health and fitness.

During most of this time, I have also been a full-time student at the University of Queensland where I majored in French, Spanish, and International Business. Along the way, I figured out that I did not want to be a translator, or to hold a corporate gig. It's really not my cup of tea. When graduation was looming, I had a decision to make. 

But then I realised it had already been made. Health and fitness - both mental and physical - are things that I have come to feel passionate about. I feel that I can contribute, and make a positive difference in this space.

I also realised that this stuff is not obvious for most people. It's pretty confusing actually, and that's partly why i'm here. I don't think there are enough people sharing the right information in an easily-digestible fashion - something that tripped me up more than a few times during my own journey.

I never expected to be in this position, and I do not take the responsibility lightly.


TL;DR

I am now a Personal Trainer, helping clients to reach their potential.

I feel compelled to pass on all that I have learned from the people that helped inspire me to reach for my own.

The purpose of this blog is to provide a résumé of the best information available, from a variety of topics, for the people whom I care about.

I have come a long way, but there really is no end-point to all this.

I simply promise to never stop learning.
