Patrick joins our panel to express his views on the link between mental health and exercise. Following his rugby career - Patrick's love for training led him to multiple first placings in bodybuilding and now has turned his hand to CrossFit and has recently become a shared owner in CrossFit Waitakere. Voices of Hope connected with Patrick through his community group Fa'atasi (meaning together) which he leads focusing on community training sessions and charity initiatives which they have kindly supported us in also. Patrick promotes healthy living and wellbeing and sees that exercise can increase our mental alertness and reduce stress and anxiety.
