Gareth Van Stiprian
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.
