Nokkon: What is your lifestyle like?

Nokkon: What activities/interests in the health and wellbeing sector do you have?
Jon: I have played Rugby League, Rugby Union, Water Polo, Bodybuilding and go ok on the Concept 2 Indoor Rowing machine. I have been lucky enough to play in England, Scotland, France, Wales, New Zealand and Australia.
Nokkon: What got you interested in health/wellbeing?
Whilst playing school Rugby Union in Brisbane, it was at this stage that I developed an interest in diet and body, how it works. It has only been the last couple of years that I have really taken a vested interest in health. Two years ago I was 134kg, and was turned away from a flying fox in Thailand. That was my crossroads, I still remember the disappointed look on my then wife’s face when I was told I could not do it. Broke my heart.

Nokkon: How do you ensure you positively influence others?
