Sport has always been a big part of my life and I’m very happy that my three children have all taken a liking to exercise and sport.
I have worked as a PE teacher and fireman, with both jobs based around fitness and physical activity.
I also get to be involved and watch plenty of sport through my job at Channel Seven.
Being active helps me to feel positive and healthy, it’s a huge benefit for my mind as well as body.
