HFP has developed over 20 years experience in the trenches as an athlete and in the books as a student.  The core philosophy of HFP was born during Colin’s years as a National Team athlete, VIS Scholarship holder and State Team Captain.

At the peak of his career, Colin represented Australia in the Youth World Cup in Ecuador and was lucky enough to experience the exhilarating feeling of playing his sport in front of tens of thousands of people under the National flag.

A grueling training and playing schedule left him with two knee injuries that would potentially see the end of his run as a high achieving athlete.  Forced out of the game for over two years and with much despair, he licked his wounds and hit the books to learn more about the body in a Fitness Degree.  Fortunately, this would pave the way to a life-long passion and understanding in human function and performance development.

After finishing his degree as the number one graduate, he was thirsty for more knowledge and studied a Diploma in Remedial Therapy.  With much eagerness and apprehension he was also feeling ready to take to the competitive sporting field again.  Like a fish returning to water he lived and breathed the game and within a few years was recruited as a full time athlete in the National Soccer League with Carlton Soccer Club.

After his time in the National League he returned to the Victorian Premier League as a semi-professional athlete and began to actively coach clients toward their health and fitness goals.  With a growing client base and a new family approaching he decided to redirect his energy to HFP in a full time capacity and has never looked back.   Colin finds the coach/client relationship highly rewarding and seeing his clients achieve their goals drives him to want to learn more.
