Hi my name is Brendon McTainsh and I am a mobile personal trainer with Fitness Inside Out – Brisbane.
I began my fitness journey back in 1984, where as a young 13 year old boy I joined South Headland Fitness Centre. With a copy of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Modern Body Building book in hand, I began lifting weights and the appetite for health and fitness had started.
In 1988, I enlisted in the Australian regular Army, initially to be a chef and then became an Infantry Rifleman – a physically demanding role with ruthless military training. During my time in the services I learnt boxing and began doing martial arts Muay Thai / kickboxing.
In 1992, I left the Australian Regular Army, to spend time with my new family. In 1993, I completed my Fitness Leader course through Fitlink and then finished Modules in Resistance Training and Nutrition and registering with the Australian Accreditation Council.
People often associate fitness with pain or something that is not enjoyable. I believe it’s really important to make training fun and stimulating, so my clients will want to incorporate it permanently into their everyday lives. Through my personalized training sessions and education, I deliver programs that are individualized and tailored to the needs and wants of my client.
