Ever since I was a kid I’ve always had more energy than most can handle. I threw most of that energy towards your usual sports such as rugby, football and basketball but I held a true love for the ones people considered extreme sports. I biked, climbed, surfed, skateboarded, snowboard. If it was dangerous I did it.
Over the past 6 years I’ve thrown all that energy into being a well rounded personal trainer, I have tried and taught various types of training from where I started as a calisthenics coach to learning the ins and outs of body building. I have always been one of those dudes that just understands the movements and mechanics of an exercise and have never really found anything that challenges me physically.
Then I found Olympic lifting which drew me in like moth to a flame. It made me feel like I knew absolutely nothing about technically moving heavy weights around. Such as the snatch, There is so many technical proficiencies that when you get it right, the feeling is unrivalled. There is something so satisfying about being able to get an absurd amount of weight from the ground to above your head and back down again, I fell in love with it instantly.
This eventually led to me to doing Crossfit which made me question my fitness and even my existence at times.. it’s not easy, if it was It wouldn’t be worth doing. My fitness sky rocketed and I’d never felt stronger. A year on, I’m a lvl 1 qualified Crossfit coach and I’m obsessed more than ever with the sport. The camaraderie within Crossfit makes it not just a class but a community of people all wanting to get the best out of themselves.
As a coach my aim is to positively influence our members lives, helping them not only get to get stronger and move well but to fill the them with the confidence they need to step out of their comfort zone and get the results they want and deserve. Helping guide our members through what they first thought was impossible or just out of their reach leaves me feeling energised and more motivated than ever.
I hope to keep pushing myself to be a stronger, more knowledgable Crossfit coach and maybe even look to competing in the future.
