I first discovered CrossFit on ESPN while watching a live broadcast of some competition. It immediately intrigued me and I did research to try find more out about this sport. Soon after, I found a box in my neighbourhood and have never looked back. I was nervous, unfit and didn’t know what to expect.
I tried to learn as much as I could about technique in the beginning by watching hundreds of YouTube videos. About a year into my CrossFit training I was approached by the head coach to take on a couple of introduction classes and so my coaching began. This was the perfect opportunity formed because I love sharing my journey with people, the small progresses that slowly turn into big steps. Not only in the boxbut in all aspects of life. I find myself selling CrossFit to my friends and family knowing how much it has changed my mind set in life.
I have a passion for people and investing into their lives. When I am not at the Box, I am a Civil Engineering Draughtsperson working for an engineering consultancy in Orewa.
Gareth has been involved in the fitness industry for 15 years, starting at a local gym as a fitness trainer as a 17 year old to becoming Head of Physical training at Advance Training centres and then most recently Vanguard Military School. Over the last 7 year he has jumped between a few Crossfit boxes and been coached by some very good coaches. In 2014 he decided to do his Level 1 coaching course and has always wanted to get into coaching in some capacity.
My coaching experience ranges from various age groups in different sports and recruits entering the Defence Force to boot camps and school sports academies. Currently I am studying a Bachelor of Exercise Science at Massey University in Albany on top of holding a current St Johns Workplace First Aid Certificate, Level 1 CrossFit certificate, Bachelor of Sport and Recreation, Certificate of Fitness Training and Personal Training and a Certificate in Fitness Instruction.
I think what attracts me to Crossfit coaching is the ability to help someone move better, gain confidence and accomplish something that they never thought possible in an amazing environment, with a great community that flows in the same direction.
