Meet Your Coaches
Coach / Owner / Geek
After working abroad in the advertising industry for 7 years, I decided to follow my passion and retrain as a CrossFit coach. I’m probably one of the biggest CrossFit junkies you will ever meet – my idea of a holiday was working at the CrossFit regionals and travelling around Europe in a van visiting gyms!
I played Underwater Hockey for New Zealand when I was 16 (yes it’s a real sport!), I did a little stint as a Divemaster in Thailand, and I used to throw myself out of planes for fun. .
Coach / Owner
I am currently studying a Bachelor of Science, majoring in Sport Science and Exercise and Health.
I was introduced to CrossFit during a stint in the ADF. Prior to that, my training involved traditional bodybuilding methods, long slow distance running and martial arts. I found that I really enjoyed the way CrossFit mixed different elements of fitness together.
I am always looking for ways to further my knowledge in health and fitness.
Coach / Weightlifting Geek
I believe time is best spent doing things that you enjoy most and CrossFit is one of them! It was not until early 2013 when I found CrossFit U. I have found specialty areas (movements) that I’ve particularly enjoyed and have educated myself outside the box – Olympic Weightlifting, Gymnastics and Mobility.
I am passionate about health, fitness and performance. I love seeing people reach their goals! As a kid growing up, I absolutely loved martial arts and movies!
Throughout the years I have experienced a number of different styles: Judo, Wrestling, BJJ, Boxing, Muay Thai and Karate. I did Karate for over 5 years and achieved my 1st dan black belt.
Training and coaching Crossfit are an integral part of my life.
