I was first taught by Calum over 6 years ago, when I began my Diploma of Fitness at Victoria University. As a student, the experience and knowledge Calum had in the Fitness industry was obvious in his teaching and very valuable for my education and for my development. After Completing my Diploma of Fitness, I was lucky to have Calum as a tutor for University subjects. He had such an influence that I credit him for my latest career move in becoming an educator at Sage for the diploma of fitness.
