Our Story

“My story cuts a similar path to athletes the world over. I wasn’t a prodigious talent or athletically gifted, I just loved the game of rugby and wanted to give everything I had to make something out of it…”

FOUNDERS STORY

I made my way into professional sport without many setbacks as a young kid, before consecutive ACL injuries kept me out of rugby for more than three years.

Injuries cruelled the early stages of that journey, with a defect in my left knee eventually uncovered, my career was at a crossroads.

The challenges of dealing with multiple surgeries, recovery and return to play opened my eyes to the world of complementary medicine.

I was eventually able to resume my playing career both here in Australia and overseas, but continued to be fascinated by the benefits to my overall health and performance.

That attitude towards complementary medicine was limited to professional sporting codes, and I wanted to bring that thinking to the broader market.

Alongside the remainder of my playing career, I set about bringing the Bondi Vite vision to life, assembling a formulation team that included more than 30 years of industry expertise in the form of Biochemists, Accredited Performance Dieticians and Pharmacists.

Now retired from professional rugby, I’m excited about embarking on the next chapter in my life and helping others uncover the benefits of complementary medicine.
