Born and bred in Kirikiriroa. Always loved being active as well as balancing that with some R&R, with family and friends.
You will either find me at the gym, at home having a movie marathon with my family or on the water paddling, standup paddling, fishing with my husband or doing Manu’s at kawhia wharf with my kids.
I love helping people find that thing inside them they never thought was possible. Sometimes it just takes that little push and there I am.
I’m here for the good times and hard times to whisper
in your ear, time to put in the work!
JOHN DE VEGA
My fitness journey began in 2013, spent several years at a normal gym. Since 2015 I moved to a new gym, something like HALE, and I was hooked.
I have been part of group fitness training for the last five years. I was involved in taking some of the classes at my previous gym. I enjoyed helping and coaching people to achieve their fitness goals. I feel it is very rewarding and a motivator for me when I see people working hard during a workout.
I have completed a certificate in group fitness coaching and on top of that I have 5+ years of experience in group fitness training. In the last five years, I was able to accomplish many achievements.
Here are a few things:
-lose about 20kgs
-a new mindset in eating
-grow a love for group fitness
-completed King and Queen of the mountain
-Top 10 finish in O rock event
-completed Tough Mudder
I’m hoping before I am too old that I will be able to complete a full marathon and maybe do the King and Queen of the mountain again.
In terms of my fitness focus and goals, I am all about the long game. Thinking about how I can stay fit physically for as long as possible, without getting too many injuries. I’m a big believer in recovery, rest, stretching.
My wife and I have three boys and I want to show my boys that I can still run and play at the age of 60.
I am a friendly, soft-spoken person when I’m not coaching. I like to have a laugh and have fun. I am a teacher, I have been teaching for 7 years. I’m looking forward to this new journey and hoping to share, my knowledge and experience with you.
I have been a physio for 17 years and am passionate about helping people restore function and rehab from their injuries.
After graduating from AUT in 2003 with a Bachelor of Health Sciences (Physio), I worked in south Auckland in private practice and worked with various local and national sports teams including touring with the NZ Breakers, and working with the Samoan 7s team in 2005 and 2006. A highlight during this period was attending the 2006 Melbourne Commonwealth Games with Samoa.
I moved to the UK with my wife Zoe in 2006 and ended up in Edinburgh working full time for the Scottish Rugby Union for nine years. Travelling around Europe and the world with rugby was my dream job and I loved it.
Wanting our kids to grow up around family, we moved back to NZ in 2015 and settled in Hamilton.
Starting a physio clinic was always something that I wanted to do and I am excited about working at Hale Health, with the excellent facilities and staff here.

I have been a part of the fitness industry for the past 11 years, working at various gyms in both New Zealand and overseas. This passion for fitness came about from being brought up around fitness with both my Mum and Dad were very active in the fitness industry.
Fitness has always played an important part of my life due to my sports, which I currently play Premier Leauge for College Old Boys and Rugby for Melville Prems.
When I am not playing sports or at the gym, I am investing in the foreign exchange market which is the biggest global market in the world and this keeps me pretty busy.
