If you’re a regular at Kapuhala you might have seen him last year setting up shop. In the back-patio space he was toiling away creating a spear throw target, building a wall climb and fashioning other obstacles. Maybe you crossed paths with him while waiting in the corridor for your Bodypump class to start. There’s also a good chance he’s run past you while walking on Discovery Bay Road. This November he competed in the Hong Kong Spartan Races and placed first in all three categories—Sprint, Super and Beast. The fitness phenom I’m talking about is Simon Passmore. He’s mild-mannered and I’ve never spoken with him other than exchanging a few pleasantries or in conversation about gym talk.
