Hi I’m Dirk and I have been in the fitness industry for over 35 years coaching and teaching Elite athletes, to Kids and Seniors.
The reason I have stayed in the Fitness Industry all this time is not because of the science or the training, but rather the people. I really love helping people to improve their lifestyle and achieve their Health and Fitness goals.
If you want true expertise,caring and support. Someone to teach you how to achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle that fits in with your work and family commitments. Someone that you can reach out to and confide in 24/7. Someone that truly cares about you and your health and fitness goals, then that’s me.
I have been lucky enough to work in many areas of coaching and training children and adults over the past 35 years, starting as an aerobics instructor at John Valentines Health Club (the first Health Club Chain in Australia) in 1982. Studying Physical Education at the Australian College Of Physical Education before working at The Brisbane Grammar School as a Phys Ed Teacher.
In the late 80’s I move to Europe to play Professional Rugby, but this was cut short due to injury. Fortuitously this opened the door for me to work as a Ski Instructor in Kitzbuhel Austria for 3 seasons, where I learned a lot about managing peoples fears and inhibitions . I then moved to New York where I coached the Rugby Team at the prestigious New York Athletics Club (NYAC) , as well as Personal Training many of New York’s leading Corporate figures.
It has been my involvement in so many different areas of health and fitness over these years that has given me an intimate understanding of how to help people overcome any physical or mental obstacles to achieve their goals.
At DirksHealth I have put together a team of the most qualified Trainers in Australia in a comfortable and relaxed private environment which allows you (and me) to concentrate on the most important thing of all, you and your health.
We are located near world famous Bondi Beach in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs, and you have the benefits of training both in the gym or on the beach.
I would love to help you achieve your goals, so please fill out the form below and I will get back to you immediately.
Looking forward to sharing all I can with you!
All the best,
