Scott Good­ing had never seen an episode of My Kitchen Rules when his mate Luke Hines sug­gested they try out for the re­al­ity TV show. “I don’t watch much tele­vi­sion,” Scott says. The two were look­ing to build their pro­file and pro­mote their clean liv­ing phi­los­o­phy and thought the hit Chan­nel 7 show would be the ideal ve­hi­cle.

So when they were ac­cepted, Luke brought a few DVDs around to show Scott what he was in for.

“It pet­ri­fied me,” says Scott. “The stan­dard of the food was so high and ev­ery­thing looked amaz­ing. We started prac­tis­ing like crazy.”

The pair, who are both per­sonal train­ers, made it to the fi­nals last year and have since used their fame to pur­sue their pas­sion for fit­ness. They re­cently launched Clean Liv­ing Cook­book: De­li­cious pa­leo food to help you change your life.

Although they were known as the “boys from Bondi” on the show, Scott moved to nearby Dou­ble Bay 18 months ago for a change of pace.

“I love Bondi but I needed more room and I was get­ting tired of the lack of park­ing,” he says.

The light-filled ground floor apart­ment has a small pri­vate court­yard with ac­cess to a com­mon pool beyond.

For some­one who is reg­u­larly up and at the beach to put clients through their paces as the sun is ris­ing, it’s the per­fect crash pad.

An­i­mal head I started col­lect­ing an­i­mal heads when I picked up a fake deer’s head for an event. This one is made from resin but it wouldn’t bother me if it was the real thing. I am a pro­po­nent of eat­ing meat and us­ing the whole an­i­mal.

Oars In the first round of My Kitchen Rules, you had to

make an in­stant restau­rant. Ours was called Made in Bondi and we used th­ese as dec­o­ra­tion. They used to be at Luke’s place but he moved

and didn’t have room. I’m look­ing

af­ter them.

Ar­chi­tect Ar­chi­tect draw­ers draw­ers I have al­ways wanted a set of ar­chi­tec­tural

plans draw­ers so when I found th­ese on eBay, I grabbed them. They were matt grey when I got them and a sanded them back to the metal with a grinder. I love their

in­dus­trial look.

BBlen­derder Be­ing in the fit fit­ness in industry, health lth and nu nu­tri­tion is a big thing so I use th the blender

all the time. I like to make sm smooth­ies with it us­ing frozen ban ba­nana, co­conut and bee pollen.

SodSoda siphons My mum and dad ran pubs bs in and around Lon­don n and th­ese were al­ways ys around. I had a great child­hood with a lot of free­dom and th­ese are re a re­minder of that.

Photo of Tashi My son has just started d school and he loves it. He goes in smil­ing and comes out smil­ing. On that first day I was a mess.

Train­ing ball I preach high in­ten­sity func­tional train­ing and I love be­ing able to train wher­ever and when­ever. This ball is por­ta­ble, com­pact and bloody hard work.
