Participating in NZ Armed Forces & Emergency Services ICN Bodybuilding & Fitness 2021 Competition


Kia Ora, my name's Trent and I am part of the Royal New Zealand Air Force.

I am competing in the Services Body Building competition in October, and I am fundraising for the Te Kiwi Māia Charity.

My fitness journey started when I first joined the military back in 2012. Since then I have experienced first hand the impact it can have not only on one's physical fitness but also the other aspects of an individuals Hauora, or general well being.

It is why I chose the career path of a Physical Training Instructor, in order to better spread this awareness and guide others on their own journeys. By participating in this competition and raising funds for Te Kiwi Māia i believe this will further spread the message, awareness and importance of physical fitness and support it's mission to help our fellow service personnel.

Te Kiwi Māia Mission

Providing rehabilitation, recovery and respite to our people, who – as a result of their role in safeguarding and caring for New Zealanders – have physical or psychological injuries. We enable our people and their families to continue healthy, positive lives.

This will be achieved through the provision of facilities, equipment, services or assistance for the rehabilitation, recovery and care of such individuals, as well as their immediate families, who are in need.

Our aim is to establish a homestead and working farm designed and equipped to foster physical, psychological and emotional rehabilitation and recovery; somewhere for those who have committed to our country, and who have been injured through their work, to recuperate and refresh. This will be achieved via the provision of a supportive and inclusive environment, professional assistance, access to a variety of services, and opportunities to participate in activities that promote mental wellness; such as pottery, cooking or yoga classes, building tuition, sports and fitness, or assisting on the farm.

Ultimately Te Kiwi Māia’s goal is to support and assist those whose role has been to safeguard and care for all New Zealanders, so they can continue healthy, positive lives.

Te Kiwi Māia’s Charitable Trust number is CC56958
