After growing up in The Kingdom of the Netherlands and spending a year in the Dutch Royal Air Force, Taco moved to Spain at the age of 19 where he worked for an Internet Company based in Marbella.
At the age of 21 he made the bold move to open up his own IT company in Torremolinos. At one stage the company employed 12 people, ranging from receptionist to designers and IT staff.
Setting up the company was one of the most exhilarating and at the same time most difficult thing he’d ever done. All business experience and knowledge had to be gained the hard way, and each day was another day of learning. Over the next 6 years he setup a complete hosting environment, with email, web and database servers, and managed several staff in hardware sales & maintenance, graphic design, programming and hosting.
At age 28 he moved to Australia Brisbane where he worked as an IT contractor for several great companies over the years like; Department of Premier and Cabinet, Tourism Queensland, Suncorp and Inco Mining.
While always been active and into fitness, in 2004 he set-up the business Executive Results providing Brisbane with the best personal training and Boot Camp services available. In 2009 he set-up Cavemantraining followed by two The TOUGH Spot gyms. In 2014 he moved to Asia with his family to the beautiful city Da Nang in Vietnam (right on the beach) and created Gym Elite. In 2015 he moved to Spain to settle down with his family and create the business they’ve always dreamed of.
