This bearded American looks more like the bloke who pours the single origin cold drip coffee at a trendy inner city cafe, but he’s actually an expert yogi — and unlike the hundreds of ultra serious fitspo accounts clogging your Instagram, he doesn’t take himself too seriously. Stretching is an integral part of your workout so it’s helpful to get some yoga into your feed.
The former NRL star and one-time Geordie Shore reality TV star is the training director behind the F45 phenomenon sweeping Australia — his football career was ended in 2012 by a serious neck injury but that hasn’t dimmed his passion for fitness nor his ability to help build Australia’s fastest growing fitness empire.

“The Glute Guy” — the self-proclaimed “world’s foremost expert on glute training” with a tight pair of buns to show for it — isn’t just a one-muscle pony.
