Local personal trainer Peter Brown, from Fisique - Body Transformations, in Dubbo, has walked away with the Business Person of the Year award at a recent ceremony in Melbourne.
The Metabolic Precision Transformation Awards Night was held on Saturday, November 26, where certified Metabolic Precision Specialists and their clients got to celebrate and be recognised for a years worth of hard work.
Metabolic Precision exists to give Personal Trainers the tools they need to clear up the confusion around nutrition and exercise for their clients and educate them to lead healthier and better balanced lifestyles.
The Business Person of The Year is awarded to a Metabolic Precision Specialist who achieves remarkable success in business and results for their clients through hardwork and determination throughout the year.
There are over 1700 Metabolic Precision Specialists across North America, Europe and the Asia Pacific.
Peter was excited and proud to say a world class health and fitness service is offered right here in Dubbo.
“To win the Business Person of the Year was certainly unexpected. But very cool,” he said.
Peter said there was a lot of stigma around fitness, but that he wants people to achieve what they want to achieve.
He has been working as a personal trainer for almost 9 years and has been Metabolic Precision certified for 6 years.
The family friendly gym he operates in Dubbo is about achieving positive body transformations.
“We’re a family friendly gym and at the end of the day we just want people to leading healthier, better lifestyles,” he said.
“The health and fitness industry is full of fads and quick fixes, we stand strongly against the noise and provide ethical and realistic advice to our clients ultimately transforming their lifestyles giving them more energy, better health and a body they can be proud of.”
Pete said Dubbo needs a lot of help, and in the short 5 years he has been here, he has seen the towns crowning as one of the unhealthiest in NSW.
“I see evidence to support this at school events such as walkathons which are meant to promote health and fitness to children but sausages and cans of soft drink are the only option for attendees and at other events like the local relay for life where people run outside the gates to have a smoke between walking laps intended to raise awareness of cancer,” he said.
“I don't think any one person, organisation or demographic is to blame for the position Dubbo finds itself in, I think a of lack of trust in the health and fitness industry, a lack of general knowledge and education about our bodies combined with the low cost and convenience of fast food in town has created a perfect storm or just the right culture that leads to obesity and other chronic illnesses.
“Our aim is to slowly chip away at the problem by putting faith back into the fitness industry and helping one person at a time achieve a lifestyle they truly deserve.”
