A little more about Max

Favourite food:
Hard to beat breakfast and coffee, but fish tacos and any seafood tops the list.

Favourite café/restaurant:
The best coffee is at Hey Jupiter or Coffee Branch in the city. Golden Boy and Sabai café are my favourite places to stop for dinner.

Favourite way to stay active:
Surfing and football are the major ones. Spending a day surfing with mates is the best way to stay active and enjoy what our coastlines have to offer.

AFL Team:
I’m a tragic for the Demons… Next year is our year. Locally, the Goodwood Saints Football Club.

Idol/Heroes:
I loved watching Andrew McLeod play, being a left-footer I ran around the oval trying to kick goals from where he did. Julian Wilson and Mick Fanning are my favourite surfers, after watching a video of them I’m always itching to get in the water.

Best way to keep fit:
Find something you really enjoy or someone who has similar goals. Being engaged with what you are doing and having someone to help keep you motivated really helps me to keep working.

Movement Tip:
Going through a squat and a single leg deadlift (hip hinge) before football really helps me switch on and feel ready to go.
