About Liam

Hi team! My name is Liam Wilkinson. I'm a personal trainer with 10 years experience in the health and fitness industry and I specialise in training motivated individuals to tackle awesome fitness adventures. 

My competitive sporting background is in martial arts, adventure racing, trail running, and obstacle course racing (OCR) including competing both in New Zealand and overseas in OCR events like Spartan and World's Toughest Mudder. 

With purpose, the right programme, and support, you can achieve amazing things with your health & fitness. I've used my extensive experience as a fitness coach, personal trainer, competitive runner and OCR racer to create a variety of training options to help as many people as I can live a life full of adventure through obstacle course racing, trail runs and multisport adventure races. 

The ultimate dream? To bring together a community of people who enjoy getting outdoors and who can support each other to rise up to the challenge of a new fitness experience.
