About Us

I am Hector Gerardo Del Nido. I have had the best start in life, living the first years of my life in the most beautiful best kept secret, Patagonia, Chile. I grew up in a small town called Palena, population of 2000 people in the middle of the Andes Mountains. When I finished year 12 I came to Australia, I came for a holiday during the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney and ended up living in Darwin for 11months. I decided to return to Australia to work hard and make my dreams come true!! 23 Years later, here I am living the dream with my beautiful wife Karlene and 2 Amazing daughters Angelica and Ariella.

Thanks to determination and hard work I have been honoured to represent Australia in high a level of sport on 2 Occasions, competing at the World Titles in Natural Bodybuilding in New York.
For the last 14years I have dedicated my life to becoming the best that I can be, a Health Coach being able to help my customers to live a life free of body pain, stress management, energised and happy.
We have been blessed to have a home away from home, the same mountain that saw me growing up and the beautiful country people that always made my time so special in Palena.
Patagonia Chile is so special, I married my wife in 2015 accompanied by 9 of our best friends from Australia to join us in the special occasion. We had the best feast and party, and an epic holiday taking in the beauty that is the Patagonia. Which included Horse Riding to different farms, Lots of traditional food, including Asado’s and Fresh Cheese, Salmon Fishing at the Lago Yelcho ,Plenty of the worlds best red wine, Open Fire Cookups, sleeping under the stars, Mustering Cattle and Cheese Making.
It has been a life long dream and now with the encouragement of my Business Coach Bruza and the EBS Community, I am going all out and bringing it to you! Taking on this adventure, showing you in personalised groups the best of my home away from home. I have done the work behind the scenes to make this an experience of a lifetime.
