The Story

Sonny Brown was born in Portugal and spent his childhood near the sea where he developed a passion for the ocean, bodyboarding, and competitive sports. He moved to New Zealand and later Australia, dedicating himself to pursuing his dream of becoming a professional bodyboarder.

At the age of 16, Sonny began competing on a pro junior bodyboarder tour around Australia and became the Australian champion between the ages of 16 and 17. He consistently traveled to compete and film with his sponsors and fellow competitors across the country.

After experiencing disappointment from coming in 2nd place the following year, he found solace in weight training which helped him overcome the negative space he was in and connect with like-minded individuals across the globe. He has been dedicated to the discipline for over a decade, becoming one of Australia's top coaches and the number one fitness cover model.

Throughout his career, Sonny has traveled the world to train and work with high-profile athletes, including the U.S. Marines. Nonetheless, he currently derives the most pleasure from working personally with his clients.

He believes that having a healthy mind and body positively impacts various aspects of life, and his vision is to provide the correct atmosphere for anyone to flourish into their best selves. Sonny is grateful for his life and health and looks forward to working with his clients to help them achieve optimal health and energy.
