Hey ladies and gents! I’m Luca Olias and here’s a little bit more about me.
I’m a man that has built a foundation on growth, sensitivity & a desire to leave a legacy based upon inspiring great people to do great things in the world.
A proud university-dropout that overcame physical and emotional battles to build a platform devoted to great people using their time on Earth to promote positivity. In April 2019, I began my podcast “Guards of Eden” with the hope of celebrating phenomenal human beings. The protectors of Paradise. My journey to this point has led me to great highs and great lows; I cannot wait to share rest of my journey with you all.
My working career started as a Lifeguard and has led me to the present day where I work in social media for Joe Wicks/The Body Coach with a lot of pubs, clubs and a cinema in between.
I was born and raised just outside of south west London and left the nest for Southampton Solent university in 2011 as a wide eyed, boozy teenager. This would be the start of my journey into adulthood. After 4 years, 2 back surgeries, 2 summers in Boston, MA & thousands of pounds later, I came back a more well-rounded person, but without a degree or any idea of what was next for my life.
After 1 final summer in Boston at summer camp and 2 part-time jobs, I was given the opportunity to join The Body Coach and to have a front row seat to the growth and development of a business that was built upon improving the quality of people’s lives.
A hunger in me to build something for myself and transitioning to self-employment grew to the point of starting my own podcast. I’m not at the self-employment stage yet, but understanding and appreciating that this is a journey I need to travel first has led to a confidence that this very well could be something I pursue. Building something that is mine, which I can steer creatively has growingly become a huge priority in my life and I’m doing my best to get after it day by day.
I’m a sports fanatic who has stumbled into a love for spinning/indoor cycling. After years of weight training and sport, I did my first spin class at the grand age of 24 and fell in love. The idea of switching off from the world for a short period of time, listening to great music and getting my body moving with a reduced injury risk was perfect for me and helped add fuel to a purpose-driven fire.
