Brisbane based fisiocrem Sponsored Athlete Geoff Harcourt knows a thing or two about keeping fit.
“I am a Physical Education Teacher in primary schooling and believe that we must keep ourselves active throughout our lives. My goal as a teacher is to show the students how age doesn’t stop you, and how beneficial it is to be able to have fitness later in life. I like to compete with the students, and quite often been involved in running races and athletic events.”
“I started running after being a volunteer at the Bridge to Brisbane in 2010. I was handing out shirts to all the finishers and thought, if they can do this, so can I. After 20 years of going to the gym every second day, I just gave it up, and started to run.”
Like many runners starting out, Geoff began by running around the block and tried to get a little bit faster each time. He soon joined a running group called Moreton Bay Road Runners, which was where his passion, knowledge and skill for running really accelerated.
“Over the years, I have certainly gained a few injuries, but this has only made me more determined to better my running style.”
