About Darren Fidge

Training Team Captain - Darwin

When his 10-year professional baseball career came to a close at the start of the 2000’s, Darren turned to his other passion – fitness. 

Darren honed his industry skills within Perfect Fit and Zest Health Clubs as a Personal Trainer, Group Exercise Instructor, Pool Operator and Gym Manager, before starting his Institute career in 2002.

Darren’s enthusiasm in the classroom inspired many graduates to great things in the fitness industry over the years and it wasn’t long before the opportunity came to lead the SA/NT Training Team as their Captain.

Darren relished this chance to make a difference at a local and regional level and is now a well established member of the SA/NT team.

Darren brings fun and enthusiasm wherever he goes, but above all else he aims to improve the standard of fitness professionals across Australia with the aim to rid our country of Sedentary Death Syndrome!
