This includes his older brother Allen who qualified in America as one of the first personal trainers operating in South Africa. Allen is a qualified pharmacist and a lifelong bodybuilder who also trained under the famous Reg Park (3 time Mr Universe title holder and hero of the young Arnold Schwarzenegger).
Steve also trained with and learned from Bruce Paddon in the city of Durban (where he grew up) for many years.

His main focus has always been on; Correct technique, Nutrition and Scientific approaches to all his training programs.
