I started my CrossFit journey in January 2012, when I was confronted with this terrifying truth:
I was overweight, unhealthy, and miserable.
Despite my total lack of fitness, I was welcomed into the CrossFit community by my coach and fellow members, and have never looked back. In the four years since that one phone call, I have trained hard, lost 4 stone, competed at a national level in CrossFit competitions, and have devoted myself to studying and coaching CrossFit with the hope of helping ordinary people like me achieve extraordinary fitness.
My passion is working with new CrossFitters. Starting as I did at the very bottom of the fitness ladder and working my way up has given me an insight into how to break down difficult or complex movements for members of any level or ability. I never get bored of seeing people do their first box jump, or find their confidence with the barbell. I love watching people get stronger than they ever thought they could be.
