Hi, I'm Darren Wise and I'm an adventure guide and love the oudoors and all adventure activities
Darren Wise's Bio:
Darren Wise in an adventure guide with over 25 years’ experience in outdoor and adventure activities. He has been fortunate to have climbed some of the highest mountains in the world and has completed many other iconic treks. Darren is now passionate about leading others on exciting adventures so that they can also experience the great outdoors and the benefits that come from some of the challenges that exist during these adventure activities. Darren undertakes many of these personal adventure challenges to raise money for charities such as Make-A-Wish Australia, Sydney Children’s Hospital Network and Legacy Australia.
Darren Wise also previously served as a paratrooper with the Australian Army which has given him a sense of adventure and a love of the outdoors. It has also provided him with the skills and confidence to develop precise plans under pressure and to operate and lead under challenging conditions in the outdoors. Not everything always goes to plan with Mother Nature, so these skills developed during his time as a paratrooper can be a valuable asset when a situation might occur such as in a medical emergency, a change in the weather conditions, or a natural disaster.
Darren Wise is also a qualified fitness professional and business and life coach, but he now uses these skills mainly in his role as an adventure guide to assist in training clients both mentally and physically for their adventure goals. He completed his Certificate IV in Life and Business Coaching with the Life Coaching Institute of Australia and his Certificate III and IV in Fitness with TAFE NSW. The training required for adventure activities is relatively specialised, so his adventure experience, fitness and coaching knowledge bring value to clients not just in their preparation for adventures, but during their adventure activities as well. Darren is also currently studying web design and online marketing through TAFE.
When Darren is not guiding clients on adventures, he is planning and undertaking his own personal adventure pursuits and challenges. His philosophy is that having defined goals keep us motivated and moving forward in life. Without big goals, we can be left floundering and stuck in a constant daily routine where the days can blend into nights. He believes having a tangible adventure goal gets us training because the outcome is real, and there’s a real commitment. Darren is also passionate about photography and video making, so his adventure activities and it personally allows him to explore this creative medium.
