In the not too distant past, Allan lived an unhealthy and inactive lifestyle. 2014 was one of the toughest years of his life, working in a corporate environment, 30kgs overweight, and suffering from poor mental and physical health. It wasn’t until early 2015 that he was able to turn his life around through Health and Fitness. Living an active and healthy lifestyle has transformed not only his life, but helped him do the same for hundreds of others.
Egwin has travelled a different fitness journey, the “skinny boy” who could only dream of having the physique he now maintains in his late 40’s. Over 20 years experience in the Health and Fitness world, and having competed in multiple bodybuilding competitions, he knows what it takes to achieve tremendous change, and maintain it. And to compliment his already impressive CV, Egwin achieved a BSc. and MBA with an emphasis in Finance and M.I.S.
Together they provide wide range of knowledge in the fitness industry and are both highly motivated to create inspiring change, and help you achieve your health and fitness goals.
Although they may have travelled significantly different paths to get here, Allan and Egwin agree that there are sections of our community that find it difficult to participate in a strength based fitness program on a regular basis. With that in mind, they created a mobile fitness solution for anyone, anywhere, BusiFit.
Using a revolutionary “Gym on Wheels”, BusiFit deliver a Strength and Conditioning style workout to you! We are passionate about using resistance based training to slow down the effects of ageing, and help reverse the growing trend of obesity and mental health related illnesses throughout the community. Together with our unique mobile system, we make it easy for people to access a premium fitness experience.
My journey in the Health and Fitness world has been a fun ride. I have been inspired by countless people striving to achieve a better life, not only for themselves, but for their loved ones as well. Every step of that journey has fed my desire to learn more, engage more, and contribute more on every level. But it hasn’t always been that way.
Having been unhealthy and overweight the majority of my life, I had been accustomed to living the “yoyo life”. Attempting all sorts of fad diets, detox’s and 30 day plans, I had tried them all. Most of which succeeded for a while, until the novelty wore off, or my body couldn’t sustain it. But what I was exposed to in early 2015 changed the course of my life forever. At 117kg I was the heaviest I had ever been, and heading for a life of heart disease at the very least, but being at a stage of my life where the pain of staying the same was so great, something had to change. Thanks to Andy Anderson and the Ultimate You team, it did.
On January 5th 2015, I attended an information night at 300 City Road Southbank, a scared, confused but desperate man. That night, hearing Andy share his vision, turned out to be a pivotal moment of my life. He planted a seed that I can, and I do deserve more in life. Using the 3 pillars of Nutrition, Training and Mindset, Andy, Andrea and the EPIC team at Ultimate You Change Centre’s, gave me the tools and know-how I needed to transform my poor nutrition and a lethargic lifestyle, into a burning desire to learn, achieve, and contribute more in life. Along my journey I transformed my body losing 37kgs in the process, but more so it restored a sense of self-worth I had lost long ago. Andy and his team have instilled a passion for everything health and fitness in me and thousands of others, and with that, a wealth of confidence to drive us towards living our dreams. For that I am eternally grateful.
Since 2015, I have become a qualified Personal Trainer, and have continually fed my desire to help others transform their lives, as Ultimate You did mine. I have continued to further my education with multiple short courses, and a PT Mentoring program run by Mark Ottobre and the team at Enterprise Fitness. From there my passion to contribute to the health and fitness of society, drove me to create BusiFit. Our vision is to reverse the growing trend of obesity and mental health related illnesses across Victoria, by introducing a healthy, active mentality as the norm across businesses throughout the state. Using an exciting and innovative mobile Strength and Conditioning unit, we will use the power of health and fitness, not only to improve the overall health of our society, but strengthen workforces across Melbourne, and eventually Australia. I hope we can assist you in achieving your fitness goals, by bringing the best out of you and your team.
My journey began over 20 years ago (Dec, 1992), when I first left the bustling city of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, as a skinny 52kg 21 year old college/uni student for the Midwest of America. Little did I know how much my life would change!
While I pursued my Bachelors in Computer Science, I took on a part-time job as a gym equipment cleaner & weights bus-boy at the University of Missouri Kansas City (UMKC). That turned out to be my introduction into the health & fitness world. I watched and admired with envy, as all these fit American boys and girls trained hard, and my first thought was, “Man, are they gonna’ use me as a toothpick?!”, thus sparked my desire to get big! Clueless, I would venture into the weights area and begin pumping away, and as destiny would have it, that caught the attention of James, who was pursing his Ph.D in Physical Education at UMKC. Long story short, he became my ardent and amazing mentor. 18 months later, with his guidance and support, I was no longer the skinny kid cleaning the weights, my transformation had seen me tipping the scales at a ripped 80+kgs and beaming!
I ventured on to complete my BSc. and then my MBA with an emphasis in Finance and M.I.S, obtained my PT certification and competed twice in local body building meets. And while I didn’t win any titles, what I did win, was the confidence, passion, skillset, and the discipline of a strong mindset that has facilitated my thirst for growth. That period of my life was just the beginning of my progression into the world of Health and Fitness, a journey which has now spanned over two decades!!!
We are bio-cognitive-adaptive creatures, and masterful training (coupled with nutrition and mindset) is an essential aspect of our COMPLETE well-being. It is not just a performance, but an art form that is always evolving. I am living proof of it and I aspire to share, help and be an inspiration, teacher and friend to those who would love to join us… BusiFit on this amazing, fun and life-long benefitting voyage!
