My Story

Welcome to The Human Being Project!

My name is Aidan, and I’m the creator of this space where I share my journey and insights into the world of health and wellness.

My Roots
I was born in Christchurch, New Zealand, but spent the past 15 years of my life in Sydney, Australia. These days, I call the beautiful Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia, my home.

Why Health & Wellness?
I’ve been navigating the health and fitness industry for over two decades. It’s been an exciting journey that started with my certification from The Australian Institute of Personal Trainers. After that, I joined the team at V Club in Sydney CBD, where I honed my skills in hypertrophy training, fat loss, and boxing.

I then founded Progressive Supplements and created the plant-based brand Arcane Performance, offering a range of gym supplements including my own plant-based protein blend and pre-workouts. This was at a time when plant-based protein wasn’t as popular as it is today, so you could say I was ahead of the curve, but unfortuntely not far enough ahead. I decided to close the store after 3 years of trading due to multiple circumstances. Although it didn’t reach the heights I was dreaming of, it gave me invaluable experience I still pull from to this day.

I’ve Come A Long Way
In my early 20s, I developed a keen interest in fitness and supplementation, which some might call a small obsession. As a personal trainer, I experimented with a tonne of different supplements.

However, it wasn’t until my late 20s that I began to take supplementation and holistic health more seriously. This shift was prompted by a challenging period in my life when I started experiencing anxiety and depression. My quest for answers and relief reached a turning point after a head clash during an AFL game – ironic, considering I’ve always been more of a rugby and rugby league guy.

This incident propelled me into a deep exploration of various healing modalities, from ice baths and energy healing to past life regression. You name it, I’ve tried it. I’ve invested tens of thousands of dollars and countless hours into understanding the intricacies of health and wellness.

Now, with over 20 years of experience and exploration in the health and wellness space, I’m ready to share the wealth of knowledge I’ve accumulated. My mission is to help others navigate their own journeys to health and happiness, armed with the insights and wisdom I’ve gained along the way.

It Runs in the Family
My Mum has also been a significant influence on my journey. Shes very much into the health and wellness thing as well, so much so, she opened a health and wellness store specializing in naturopathic care, herbal supplements, vitamins, and minerals.
