AARON CARRASCO Director
Aaron has been an avid sports enthusiast for nearly two decades having played, coached and managed various teams across a range of codes. A serious ACL injury put an end to Aaron’s pursuit of representative honours, and has seen him endure more than two years of strict rehabilitation and only now seen him back to full fitness. This hurdle has equipped him with a steely resolve in the midst of sporting adversity, making him the perfect sounding board for young athletes looking to progress. Aaron has armed himself with a Bachelor of Health Science and a Diploma of Sports Development boasting the perfect mix of practical experience and theoretical knowledge to bring a unique combination of youth and experience to the Kaizen brand.
Aaron is a Level 1 accredited coach with the Australian Strength and Conditioning Association (ASCA), is a Level 1 Sports Medical Trainer and a member of the Penrith Panthers NRL media team for 2015.
