Brad graduated from Otago University in 1997 and started his physiotherapy career working through the various specialties at Whanganui hospital. He has worked in private practice whilst completing a certificate in Sports Medicine, and a qualification in Psychology and Counselling.
Brad then bought his current business, EVERFIT, in 2016, re-branding to encompass his mission:
Building impactful relationships to understand the client’s context/background, then empowering the client with holistic daily habits to move them towards a plant based diet, quality relationships, and movement in nature to create strong pillars of wellness.
Brad discusses a plant based diet with all of his clients as it is an important pillar of true wellness. Brad has competed at an international level for his age group in triathlon, enjoys marathon and trail running. He enjoys coaching endurance athletes, writing wellness articles, and taking exercise classes.
Brad’s interest in a whole food plant based diet started when his uncle was diagnosed with bowel cancer and he learned more about the relationship of animal products with disease. He started transitioning in 2014 and has moved along the spectrum to a plant based, nature centered lifestyle firstly for performance and health, then having his mind opened to the inefficiency, and negative environmental impacts of having industrial animal agriculture as a major part of our food system.
