Kidney Fitness NZ Hits the Road

Hi, I am Cameron, a long term kidney patient who has had 2 transplants and multiple hours of dialysis, with my kidney not doing so well now.

You may also wonder where the kidney fitness came from? Just before my last transplant in January 2020 I really started to get into my fitness and spent many hours working with Tracey Drinkwater and the team around what I do.

I had big dreams that after my transplant I was going to become a personal trainer and see how I could help other people in my situation I often ponder the above question and think how cool that would be to just pack up and go. I spent 2 weeks living in my car in Wellington at the protest and this even more made me want to do this so a few months back I made the decision to follow this dream.

I started selling everything and looking for the right Van to make this happen. The road hasn’t been easy with so many things not going to plan, and some hard lessons learned. I’m now just weeks away from leaving Auckland for hopefully two or so years on the road.

What do I want to do and what do I want to see? Well I’m not 100% sure, I’m going where the wind takes me, fishing, walking and open to any option to meet new people and share knowledge with them.

If you would like to follow my journey or get in contact with me, I would be happy to touch base with you and maybe even have me visit. You can check out my blog on Facebook called Kidney Fitness NZ Hits The Road or email me
