Wellness Manager & Head PT
Si started Tate Wellness to help people who are struggling with their weight, wellbeing and workload.
10 years ago, he was overworked, overweight and felt like he had no time to put it right. Work was going well but he was travelling frequently and as his workload increased so did his waistline.
It had reached the point where he was carrying an extra 20kg of fat around, something that behind the scenes he felt pretty down about, yet he kept convincing himself that it wasn't that bad...
After months of denial, he decided that enough was enough and he needed to do something about it. He made a big shift in his work-life balance, changed his diet dramatically and hired a personal trainer. Within 4 months he had lost not only the extra 20kg he was carrying but an additional 10kg on top of that.
The experience changed him, and he decided to use what he know to help other struggling to improve their health and wellbeing.
In the 10 years since, Si has developed a complete approach to health and wellbeing, working with some of the best professionals in the industry.
At Tate Wellness you’ll get the best of his knowledge and his expertise. His team will help you get results, but more than that, they will improve your quality of life. At Tate Wellness, you're in the best hands.
