Tobias has played various sports including Tennis and Football for both school and local teams as well as practising Martial Arts. A passion for Tennis developed and Tobias competed in tournaments around the county. During high school, he discovered personal training and the lasting effect it had both physical and mentally. Although not studying fitness or sports sciences at school (due to his other passion in music), his interest in physical fitness continued to grow until he was given the opportunity to start an apprenticeship here with us at Coastside Fitness. In addition to his apprenticeship, Tobias still finds the time to assist at the local kickboxing academy and is working towards gaining his black belt in Kickboxing!
