|Jono is SmartStart’s most experienced leader having been with us since 2008! Jono has a Diploma of Fitness and has gone back to study in 2012 starting a Coaching and Exercise Science degree at the University of Canberra. Jono can be labelled a fitness fanatic, also working in strength and conditioning for the Canberra Raiders combining his love of Rugby League with his passion for health and fitness. Jono also counts Gridiron as one of his favourite sports.
Jono has enjoyed working for SmartStart for the past 4 years because he enjoys teaching kids new skills and seeing their improvement. ‘’Apart from all of the obvious physical benefits of being involved in sport/exercise, the social benefits are huge. From learning communication, teamwork and leadership skills to making lifelong friends, sport and exercise can provide an excellent way for kids to interact.’’
When Jono was younger he held an AIS scholarship in gymnastics and only attended school for 3 hours per day for English, Maths and Science.
