“Me he kākahi motu i te māhanga, ka noho herekore, ka ora”

(like orca freed from captivity, evolution via education)

what I teach…


Strength. Connection. Unity

S.C.U is an all-encompassing  6-day personal evolution program which focuses on the fundamental platforms required to succeed.


S is for strength and targets foundation construction, implementation of that foundation built, and finally, adherence to those things implemented.

You will also learn my Whetū Wae Rima (The 5 Cornerstones of Wellness) what they are, how they work, and how to make them part of your daily life. 

My intention is for the Whetū Wae Rima to become a P.H.A.K.T (pronounced “fact”) of life for you and your whānau.

P: Pākahukahu (vigour)

H: Hononga (connection)

A: Aronga (purpose)

K: Kukuwhatanga (evolution)

T: Taioranga (nutrition)

I will then share with you my 10 Pou (Pillars) to Peak Performance.

My 10 Pou to Peak Performance is a strategy that encourages self reflection of times past, current, and honesty with what it is you need to do right now, this day, in order to create momentum.

These 10 pou represent ‘goal setting’ aspirational fields in our lives that require measuring and focus. They are crucial to your personal evolution and success. 


C is for connection and its focal point is the collation of information including personal identity. Through this information, a realisation as to why we and others hold certain beliefs will become apparent, and finally, the sharing of new understandings through the S.C.U lense will truly awaken your desire to continue learning.


U is for unity and put simply, we head into the bush for 2 days and 1 night. It shines a light on the excitment involved in collaboration and the benefits in using specific types of communication, namely C.C.P.  

Whilst in the natural world we utilise the four elements of air, water, earth and fire to create massive enthusiasm to learn and develop, and once we do, the enjoyment from your success and subsequent completion of S.C.U will have you ready to kick some serious ass in all aspects of your life! 


Help don’t sell

Strictly Sales has been continually developed over my last 21 years in the health and fitness industry.

I focus in on human behavioral patterns and what actually makes people tick to ensure both the operator and the customer get exactly what they want, and more importantly; need.

Strictly Sales is an intense, fundamentally sound, systematic and fun approach to sales, designed to bring out the best in all team members and customers alike.

Strictly Sales focuses on helping rather than selling and takes the “sales shark” aspect out of the art of selling whilst filling both sides of the sales process with confidence and enthusiasm to purchase.

Human beings are more sales savvy than ever before, so it’s important we help our customers using our ears rather than our mouths.


My Strictly Sales system takes you through the 8 different phases of a sales process and all that they encompass, including:

  • Seize the Moment! 1 second, 1 look, 1 word
  • The complexities of the Meet and Greet
  • Magic Memo’s and their evolution
  • Right Reflection equals Transaction
  • 1 = 4: Referrals are the measuring stick
  • Loving your figures and their honesty
  • The new ‘Needs Analysis’
  • Linking Questions
  • The power of the Recap
  • 1440 – 40 realisation technique
  • Tour of duty
  • Learning techniques of a buyer
  • Trial closing
  • How to ‘tie down’
  • Powerful Price Presentation
  • The key to a successful Close
  • Objection Handling


After 3 days with me, I promise you’ll be busting to get out and help, and furthermore, you’ll break records!


Personal safety

I am passionate about improving the ability of mans’ most treasured possession – our women and girls, to protect themselves from others and harm, Tū Toa enables me to provide that opportunity.


Afterall, tō te wahine te whare tangata, it is our women who hold the womb and therefore our future generations – our children.

This is something I really enjoy and hold close to my heart being a father of daughters, and each seminar will be tailored to suit the participants and or audience.

Schools, whānau, teams and groups are all welcome, if you’d like to know more, please ask.


“He mate i te marama” (The moon dies. A moon-like death)

Though the moon ‘dies’, it soon reawakens ‘rises’, you however, cannot return, so, do not expose yourself to unecessary and unwanted danger.



Te Whetū Wae Rima Whakaaro - The Five Cornerstones of Wellness

I truly believe that in order for an individual to find true wellness they must aspire to attain the highest possible quality in these five subjects within their life.

Te Whetū Wae Rima basically translates to ‘The Five Limbed Star’, the star symbolises ones ancestors who now guide from above, it also encourgaes one to continue to aim high in all personal pursuits.

Whetū are always a sign of hope and aspiration and a reminder to live with the vigour and determination of our forefathers.

With whetū being visible from all corners of the world, it brings comfort in knowing we are not alone but also serves as a reminder to carry out your life with resilience, dignity and honour and in doing so, setting a positive example for those chiefs of tomorrow whilst not letting down those chiefs of yesteryear.

Its five equal sides symbolise the five cornerstones of wellness.

Should one of the five conerstones be lacking or weakened, an individual, or a collective may become ‘unbalanced’ or impaired.

The Five Cornerstones of Wellness Explained

* Pākahukahu (vigour). Movement, its varying intensities and caloric expenditure is just as important as both sleep quality, sleep stages and rest and recovery via exposure to both cold and hot temperatures to maintain consistency in mindset, resilience, physicality and spirituality.

* Hononga (relationships). Whānau (family), friends and workmate relationships should be just as important as spiritual connections we hold with a higher being, tīpuna (ancestors) and connections we have and experience with our natural world – te tai ao.

* Aronga (purpose). Purpose, supported by mission and vision is critical for allowing one to understand the beauty in their uniqueness, their reason for being and life objectives. Constructive thinking and action provoking emotions are integral in how we view ourselves and our journey in this world and beyond.

* Kukuwhatanga (personal evolution). Continual personal development, learning, experiences and knowledge attainment in fields aligned with your purpose is essential for growth and personal evolution. The desire to then pass those teachings on should be just as strong as the initial desire for attainment. I believe that applied knowledge is power.

* Taioranga (nutrition). What we consume and when we consume it are both imperative aspects to living long and healthy lives. The consumption of nutritonally dense food, quality water and life-giving exposure to the right light can determine how well we perform in this journey called life.

Te Karakia a Raha - Raha's Prayer

“Ka oho te wairua, ka mataara te tinana, he aroha ki te aroha, ka kā te rama.” (When the spirit is awakened, when the body is alert, when love is unconditional, enlightenment follows)

Kāi Tahu Rūnaka - Kāi Tahu Tribal Council

“Aoraki te waka atua, Uruao te waka tipua, Kurahaupō te waka takata o taku rahi. Whatoka ki te ihu, Ruatea ki te riu, Popoto taku tipuna ki te uruki e!”

(Aoraki is the godly canoe, Uruao the supernatural canoe, Kurahaupō the canoe of our people and importance. Whatoka at the bow, Ruatea at the hull, my ancestor Popoto navigates!)

purpose: a person’s sense of resolve or determination
