About The Team
Owner: Michael Rand
After 22 years in the RAAF as an Aircraft Technician, I decided that my passion lay else where.
Already a qualified Remedial Massage Therapist and Cycling Coach, I was doing more and more work out of hours heading in this area.
Finally the decision had to be made - Continue with coaching and massage as a hobby or do it for real.
Starting from home and working predominantly with massage, this quickly grew to working at a small clinic in Newcastle then on to working out of a Gymnasium for 1 ½ years.
Since early 2014, Total Performance Centre has been a part of the landscape of the CBD of Newcastle offering high quality Personal Training and Remedial Massage. I have built a centre that I believe can truly make a difference in real people’s lives by including Healthy Lifestyle advice, Strength Training and aerobic conditioning along with helping lessen people’s musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction. I believe this is the true key maximising your potential to living a long healthy life.
Troy is a Certified Level one Australian Weight Lifting accredited coach a qualified personal trainer and as you soon realise a complete and utter devote to all things strength and conditioning.
Not long after that you learn that it's not just about strength. It's about doing it well, doing it safely, not compromising people's safety for ego.
Troy is the latest addition to Total Performance Centre as a part of the Group fitness team and is in charge of Raise the Bar for the Weekday morning classes.
Troy is currently also studying his Bachelor's in Food Science and Human Nutrition at Newcastle uni and has a keen interest in healthy eating and sustainable lifestyle choices with eating habits.
