Fred grew up in Singapore and New Zealand before moving to Sydney when he was 10. After finishing high school, Fred’s summer job working in a kitchen turned into a 9-year career as a chef. While he was working, Fred continued to run to keep fit and to help cope with the stress and pressure of working in hospitality.
Fred first met the team at The Body Mechanic when he had an overuse injury whilst still working as a chef. He experienced first-hand what a difference good physiotherapy treatment and individualised coaching can make when it comes to rehabilitation, recovery and achieving goals. This was a big inspiration for him to change careers and become a physiotherapist.
Since graduating, Fred has been working in private practice, and he is now very happy to be part of the team that helped to keep him running.
Fred loves trail running and getting out into nature. His dream is to do the Kepler Challenge in New Zealand after hiking the Kepler track in 2019. Fred lives locally so keep an eye out for him running over the Bridge or around Balls Head after work, climbing at a bouldering gym, or looking for a shady spot at the beach.
