Porou Wise

Porou-wise_02

Porou has been involved in the recreation and operations sector of the Wellington City Council for the past 10 years with the last 3 Years of that working as fitness consultant and a personal trainer.

From a young age he has been involved in sports and fitness in particular rugby and rowing which required a high level of commitment to be competitive in. Today his motivation has moved away from competitive sports to challenging himself in the gym to maintain a healthy lifestyle. His training in the gym is centred on well structured weight loss programs that give the best results.

Key motivation as a personal trainer is to share my passion and knowledge with others so they can better achieve their health and fitness goals within a realistic timeframe. What attracted me to studio41 was the idea of being put in a position to improve as a personal trainer and to continue to upskill and better my educational development under the Studio41 education opportunities they provide.

Connor Jackson

Connor-jackson_02

My passion for fitness comes from a desire to always improve. I have many different types of training and I love all things physical (except for split squats of course). I have competed in Athletics and Judo, I was also a rep Hockey player for 7 years and I started Powerlifting at 15 years old, achieving a record deadlift of 180kg for my age and weight.

My own training has evolved into understanding that it is about the client, what is right for them, not what is right for me. This may be a mix of strength, rehab or cardio. But above all else what ever training we do it has to be maintainable for the client.

I am currently studying under the CHEK institute and looking at scientific back and core training. Learning motivates me and keeps my mind busy.

I have been a coaching people for over 5 years now and still enjoy helping someone achieve a goal.

Nathan Cameron

Nathan Cameron

Nathan came to the fitness industry with the desire to change career paths from an office based Services Advisor to full time Health and Fitness Trainer. He has always had a great deal of passion for the industry and has been actively involved in Football and Cricket throughout his life.


Nathan sees personal training as empowerment through education, he recently travelled to Sydney to attend internationally renowned strength coach Charles Poliquin’s Bioprint seminar. Continual education is what motivates him on a day to day basis, sharing this knowledge and putting it into practise with clients is what he does the best. He takes a great deal of satisfaction from not only clients achievement of their goals but also the positive changes in behaviours that lead to a more holistic healthy lifestyle.

He believes that each individual needs an exercise, nutritional and supplement program tailored specifically to their goals, with careful considering of the real life limitations that an individual’s lifestyle may pose. Designing a sustainable program within these limitations is the challenge that he thrives on.
