About Phil Landman
I grew up in South Africa where I spent the first 19 years of my life, an amazing place to live and experience and a place I miss very much. Once I had completed school and my service with the South African Defense Force, which was mandatory and a time where I was exposed to many experiences that aided in my personal growth and sense of independence, I packed a bag and left South Africa. Much of my motivation to leave was the sense of adventure that has always been a defining part of my life but also to pursue my passion in sport and competition. My problem was I always had 3 or 4 or 5 sports I was trying to be the best at, great fun but this strategy did not allow me to focus and 110% on any particular discipline. I eventually moved into the fitness and human performance side of things where I have spent the majority of my years learning, experiencing, educating and evolving myself as a competitive athlete, both as a hobby and as a career. I have been fortunate to be able to turn all of this experience and passion into a career helping others to improve their own health and athletic performance.
I utilize training methods, my knowledge and experience from overseeing and managing the strength and conditioning program for professional boxers. (including the up and coming Australian heavyweight Trent Rawlins and world champion Miguel Cotto for several years). I also largely incorporate cross training techniques and conventional training methods tailored and influenced by my personal experiences and also my participation various sports into a philosophy that represents my approach to training more as a lifestyle and a part of my daily life, rather than the all to familiar and far less effective than the “1 hour 3 x a week” approach that tends to lack longevity and expected results.
