"Kia kaha!" In my language this means, "be strong." This is my goal physically, mentally and spiritually. I am Reuben, nicknamed 'Haka', by supporters during my career in professional sports.

Now retired from sports I am a husband and father of six. I hope to share and gain knowledge as I take yet another journey to a healthier stronger version of myself.

Personal Information:
Born in Areka, Aotearoa in the south pacific I moved to Australia in 99' with my wife and 4 children to continue my career as a professional athlete. Retired in 2005 and since then have enjoyed the last 7 years of nothing! LOL.

Since adding two more bubbas to our family I have found myself in need of breath and energy So it's back off to training again.

I like Rugby, MMA, video games, board games. Anything where orcs are involved. Lord of the rings, world of warcraft.

I am a closet geek and love computers and anything tech.

I love children and wish the world was suitable for us to have more lol.

I love any pain associated with improving myself or others.

I love seafood of any kind. My favourite are kina (sea urchin). Pies, pork and steak. I don't like anything sweet like cakes, candy or chocolate. I like trifle, yummy.


Other Information:
Big shout out to my beautiful wife for simply being AMAZING!

    Hi there! First I need to know which do you like. Hi Reuben or Hi Haka? emoticon I read a little about you. 6 youngsters....what are there age range? boys girls? I love the fact that you said on your profile that you have an amazing wife emoticon You sound like a very devoted Father and Hubby.

    Now I want to Thank you for your replies on a couple of my blogs. Your input is very encouraging! Opened my eyes to. I did not realize it but yes I was selling myself short a bit. Thanks for pointing that out. Because yes I have come a long way in just a few months.

    The plan A, B OR C sounds confusing, but I think I get it. I am going to try it out. That's a good way to keep the PMA (positive mental attitude) I am always open to any suggestions or ideas. Thanks for sharing ! I will stay kia kaha! God Bless you friend Hugs Cathe

    Thank you for the exercise advice you left on my blog!

    I know you're not a doctor, but I kind of think you have a better idea about this sort of thing than I do, given your background. So, what you had to say meant a lot to me. =)

    I hadn't thought about the whole muscle repair / sickness repair thing. Makes a lot of sense.

    Again, thank you!
