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 forme 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.
