I have always been a competitive sportsman, playing tennis when I was younger and playing and coaching football all my life. I started weight training roughly 3 years ago but had no real aim, bar getting “swole.” I had heard of crossfit being talked about at the gym and I decided to look it up. After seeing how strong and fit the individuals were I decided to give it a go. I progressed quick and 6 months later I decided to do my level 1 course.
My favourite aspect of training crossfit is the huge exposure to weight (Olympic) lifting and the benefits these exercises have to so many sports. On the flip side, as soon as long distance running or long distance rowing are in a WOD I dread it!
Being a crossfit coach is greatly rewarding. There is nothing better than coaching the OCF athletes to better themselves and see the progress they make. Coaching also improves me as an athlete as it is a constant learning process.
In the gym you will most likely see me deadlifting, squatting or on the GHD trying to get my power belly game improved! When I am not training I will probably be found eating or smashing some supplements.
