Bio Callum

Callum is a kiwi kid from rural Taranaki (NZ), who started his journey into fitness by building a gym in a farm shed when he was 13. Inspired by Rocky movies and the likes of Ben Johnson and Carl Lewis (Olympic 100m Legends..cheats..sigh) he set about to turn his body into a world beating machine.

His dad took over the reigns of trainer and soon he was a provincial sprint champion, leading to National schools and then NZ U18 100m and 200m Champion.

His more is better principals led him down some major injury paths, with a back fracture at 19. This almost lead to his early retirement. But with some major investigations into finding a solution to his core problems, he managed to get back on track and won a senior  NZ 400m Championship. At this stage he was also a regular in the NZ Surf Life Saving team and won his first World Beach Sprint Title in England.

 He would then race for NZ at the World Athletic Championships and continue to dominate the beach sprinting winning another 5 World Titles and 3 Australian Championships.

Throughout this period he had set up numerous training facilities and was sprint trainer for ACT Brumbies, North Sydney Bears, Penrith Panthers, West Tigers, Bondi SLSC and Australian Wallabies.

Callum moved up to Tweed Heads and continued to apply his trade and has called himself a local for the past 15 years. He is now into his 4th year as Tweed Heads and Coolangatta Beach head coach and holds coaching positions with NZSLS and Lindisfarne, while helping out a good majority of the local sporting talent to achieve their goals.
