Master Trainier, Professional Martial Artist & Australian & Asia Pacific International Natural Bodybuilding Champion
Hi my name is Graden Leong and im a professional martial artist, natural bodybuilder, school teacher and business owner.
I’ve been studying martial arts from the age of six, in karate, Muay Thai Kickboxing and Jiu Jitsu. From this I’ve achieved 4 world martial arts titles as well as earning a 3rd dan black belt.
In 2011 I entered 3 major natural bodybuilding comps earning myself two 2nd places and a first place at nationals, earning the australian titile "MR AUSTRALIA".
In 2013 I competed again for a second season, earning 1st place at South Coast and 3rd place in a very tough line up at the Sydney Championships. I had then entered the Asia Pacific International Champions earning a 2nd place in the short class and 1st place in the U65kgs.
Always being inspired by the health and fitness industry, I’ve also studied Health Science PD/H/PE at the University of Western Sydney earning a degree and then masters of Teaching and a Diploma of Business. With my qualifications and experiences, I wanted to inspire school children, young teens, adults and the wider community that having a healthy mind means having a healthy body which impacts on the way how one perceives their life.
As we all know obesity is one of the leading causes of death in society today, which is why I thought helping to educate younger people while we still can, will have a positive outlook on their lives in the future. Having the confidence and self belief that they can wake up every day feeling positive; having the will power to achieve anything and overcome obstacles can be anybody’s greatest wealth.
In doing so I run a martial arts, body transformation, bodybuilding and personal training fitness school (Gradens Martial Fitness GMF) to help coach the local community by engaging them in the beauty of health and well being thorugh martial arts and overall fitness..
I’ve also seen myself person of hard work ethics, a leader by example and my passion to help others to achieve are my greatest assists. I hope to inspire as many people as I can about the beautiful of fitness health and wellbeing.
I quote: “The will power to keep striving for success in the key to a person’s aspirations. No matter the obstacle, there is always a way and you will always find it eventually”.
