|About Pat: Having played most team & field sports at School, Pat went on to represent his county at Rugby & Tennis as a junior. At the same time, Pat’s interest and abilities with BMX freestyle riding grew…custom building bikes in his garage at the age of 10! At the age of 13 Pat took up Taekwondo, where the his poor parents garage turned into a scene from Rocky 4!Competing nationally on a regular basis, saw Pat become junior (under15s) champion in all disciplines of Sparring, Technical Patterns and Destruction. Moving into the senior category, whilst giving up the opportunity to play Rugby for his County, it wasnt long before Pat was winning the adult sections in Taekwondo and Freestyle Martial Arts competitions. At the age of 21 Pat set up his first TaeKwondo schools and personal training company in central London.
After building a successful personal training business and Taekwondo schools, pat took on new new challenges within the fitness industry and spent 6 years managing health clubs for Cannons, Holmes Place & David Lloyd. Pat hadnt been competing in Taekwondo for a few years, when at the age of 30, thought it was time for a new competitive sport…Ironman Triathlon!
