How did Bondi Beach Bar Brutes come about?
It started in 2012 with the idea to bring everyone, who trains in Bondi, together once a month and to learn from each other.

How long have you been a personal trainer? Have you always been into your health and fitness?
I've been a personal trainer for the past five years. Prior to that I did accounting in Sydney. I soon found out it wasn’t for me, so decided to study fitness. At that time I was more into martial arts, like boxing and jiu jitsu. Now I just enjoy general fitness, as long as I break sweat I am happy!

We recently spoke with Fred Nunes from Acronuts – Do the Bar Brutes train with Acronuts and vice versa?
Yes, we all train together, its more fun and it's a positive environment. Plus it encourages more females to be active and learn bodyweight training.
Why do you think training outside has become so popular?
Its fun and functional, fresh air, social, creative and free.

What is your favourite thing about training next to Bondi Beach?
