CrossFit Level 1 (CF-L1) Trainer
CrossFit Coaches prep.
I come from a background dominated by Aussie rules. Playing since i was 7, I represented the state at U/16 level and spent the best part of 8 years playing at a league club. Through my heavy involvement and love for sport, I developed a passion for health and fitness.
Upon leaving school I gained certificates 3 & 4 in fitness, and began part time work at various gyms across Adelaide. I was disappointed with what I’d found. The industry seemed too full of people looking for shortcuts and easy options to health and fitness, and even more people willing to offer the shortcuts!
I decided it wasn’t for me and left to pursue an apprenticeship in carpentry. During this time i was introduced to Crossfit by a friend and have never looked back, I could not imagine training any other way.
I’m commited to constantly improving as a Coach and Athlete and expanding my knowledge along the way, certain that these improvements will benefit our athletes at Crossfit Tenacity. I get great satisfaction from seeing others improve and achieve their goals.
My way of life is simple, put the hard work in and get results! No shortcuts, No easy options, No excuses, No bullshit…. Plenty of fun along the way!!!
I have always been passionate about sport and from a young age participated as and when I could at school. At 7 years old I joined a local rugby union club. My passion for rugby took me to State level playing union and league for SA from the u14s through to the u18s team. When I finally stopped as a player I got involved coaching school rugby at a local Primary school.
I went straight to University at the end of my schooling and graduated in 2012 with a BSc in Human movements and health studies. This was a great experience and allowed me to further expand my knowledge about the human body and it taught me how to provide the best training for a range of individuals. My degree gave me the confidence and the passion to further my knowledge. I am currently studying a Masters degree in Sports Science, specialising in strength and conditioning which is due to finish in 2014.
As far as my own training goes, before crossfit I was your typical commercial gym member who was stuck in the same old routine with minimal results. . I discovered crossfit by accident while flicking through TV channels and stumbled upon the Crossfit Games. I looked up crossfit and started completing some workouts at the local gym. It wasn’t long before I was hooked and ended up at crossfit tenacity!
Just like Matt once I found crossfit I never looked back, it was definitely something I had never experienced before. The community at tenacity is something you could never find at a normal gym and everyone loves to have fun while trying to improve. Crossfit has pushed me to both mental and physical limits and I find myself constantly learning and striving to improve in all areas. I’m always looking to help our athletes push themselves and work hard to achieve results.
Qualifying as a crossfit coach has brought me a step closer to my hopes and ambitions for the future. As a coach there is nothing better than helping everyone to improve their own fitness and well being whilst trying to smash their own personal goals!
