Wolfgang’s passion for Emotional Fitness was founded on his own experiential life learning rather than a lengthy University study.

 As an ordinary public servant working as a Tradesman’s  Labourer in Brisbane. Wolfgang’s life was interrupted forever. He was held hostage in a siege with 9 other people. He faced his death and did what no ordinary man would do, he disarmed the gunman, reclaimed the rifle and saved his colleagues from imminent execution. For which he later received a Bravery Medal and citation from the Queen. Wolfgang had what some would call a spiritual awakening only it took him hostage for 30 days and pressure tested his psyche 100 fold.

Through this experience, he discovered that he needed to evolve and grow into the person he was born to be.  In order to do this, he had to face his fears and insecurities and pursue tools to gain valuable understanding of what makes a human being more emotionally strong and resilient in the face of adversity.

He would do so by healing and understanding himself first and foremost. As a survivor of PTSD, and severe childhood trauma he wanted to do more than just survive. He wanted to seek to understand his trauma intimately and to journey to the heart of it. It was from his training and his own personal discovery and through years of working with Men’s Rites of passage that he began to understand his sacred teacher within. Wolfgang was guided to take valuable time out of the spotlight in Men’s health and redirect his energy into his family. By turning his attention to using the tools he had learned with his primary relationships within his family  Emotional Fitness Personal Training TM was created. A man on a mission, with a huge heart, Wolfgang brings a fresh new approach to therapy with his own fusion of  Personal Training  for the Emotions.
