It is action that creates motivation



Get Started


Master Trainer
I’ve been doing something fitness my whole life and coaching it for almost 8 years. Starting out like most young men all I did was build muscle, sit on machines for hours on end doing the same thing every week to obtain a goal I thought I wanted.

Once I peaked and started competing on stage in Men’s Physique I quickly realized this was not my goal, it was a goal I was told I wanted. And working in a gym I see that all the time people being told they have to join a gym to lose weight or get stronger, but that’s not the real reason, people want to lose weight or get strong to be able to do or accomplish something and joining a gym only to lose weight just sounds like a chore. I then set out for the type of well-rounded fitness I really wanted and then the traditional style gym became boring and most programs became boring and repetitive: build muscle, lose fat, build muscle, lose fat etc etc.

Bio Tim Sunderland

I now only train what’s fun to me, I want to be running to the gym like a child at a playground so excited to try out different movements with different tools. This also allows me to have my fitness goal too as I now don’t focus on one style of training but them all, strength, power, speed, gymnastics, kettlebells, bodyweight movement, conditioning, the list goes on. Not the best at everything but good at a lot. And if you enjoy your workouts every day, like a child at a playground guess what happens to your body shape? You build muscle and lose fat.
Now, as a coach I’ve gone from bodybuilding to corrective strength and sports science. I’ve put all my attention into injury prevention / recovery so people can stay working out as hard as they can in the gym and maintain a healthy moving body without pain or injury stopping them. As well as a fitness coach, I am a fitness educator. Travelling the country and the world with ‘Rehab Trainer’ and ‘The Functional Training Institute’, I work as hard as I can to improve the knowledge and practice of other fitness coaches and allied health professionals.

Cert III, Cert IV and Diploma in Fitness

I help people simplify and understand the paths through their challenges so that we can both live meaningful, quality, wholesome lives. I have always been inquisitive and active: playing sports, pulling things apart and putting them back together, trying to understand how things work and how I can make them better.

The sports I engaged in as a child and teen fuelled a passion for technical knowledge and performance improvement. When I was working as an apprentice mechanic, I started Muay Thai kickboxing and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, so in both my trade and my leisure I was seeking to understand the intricacies that helped me improve my performance. To supplement my training (and give me options after I finished my trade), I studied to become a Personal Trainer as well.

Bio Dan Carter

I joined the Army in 2011 in an effort to create meaning and feel like I was contributing to improving people’s lives, somewhere in the world. It was during this stage that I started to really fire up in my passion for training, whether it was in the gym lifting stupidly heavy things, out on the battlefield running and crawling through contact drills, or helping some of my buddies get past their injuries and improve their health and fitness after they, or I, had seen a physiotherapist.

In 2013, I started to sustain multiple injuries through my back, shoulders, and ankles. I saw 3 different physios in 3 states who all gave me different diagnoses of the issues, and I felt lost and confused. In 2015, I ended up seeing a great sports physio who was able to identify my movement patterns which were causing my problems. It was through this physio that I started to really understand how everything is linked together in the body, and I was disappointed as I realized I shouldn’t have had to see multiple professionals to identify how my poor biomechanics were causing these issues. My passion for solving movement challenges and building the bridge from injury to activity was born. In 2016 I started Revamp Personal Training, a rehabilitative functional strength and conditioning business which integrates with Allied Health Professionals in supporting patients from the end-stages of their initial rehab, back to full function and performance in their daily lives. I became qualified in Functional Training, Boxing, and Rehab FX which reinforced that the training methodologies and techniques I had applied with my patients are not only effective but supported by evidence and AHPs in practice. This is where I met Tim, and the journey towards True Technique was set in motion.

I embody this philosophy in my coaching style, placing utmost importance on the meticulous execution of exercises rather than focusing solely on speed or weight. It was precisely this commitment to prioritizing movement quality that initially captivated me about TT. Unlike my previous engagements in various fitness facilities, TT stands out as a pioneering facility that unequivocally emphasizes the significance of precise movements. I am eagerly looking forward to imparting this invaluable knowledge and approach to you.
