CrossFit Coach, Kids/Teens Coach, Personal Training

I love to move, but have never excelled at one thing, never the fastest, strongest or most skilled at whatever sport or activity I have tried. I was searching for training regimen where I could express and improve as many physical qualities possible at once and be a generalist. So, when I found CrossFit I was hooked first with the idea, that it is possible, as it redefined what it meant to me to be “fit”.

I started training by myself at first, but motivation through healthy competition and equipment were lacking. Joining CrossFit Waitakere in 2014 I became part of a community, surrounding myself with people who want to better themselves, who push themselves and have fun while doing it. To me CrossFit training is about challenging yourself mentally, progressing yourself physically and most importantly socialising with others who have the same interests- after picking yourself up off the floor and left a sweat angel.

I love to coach, motivate and help people own their bodies to reach whatever physical aim they desire, I have benefited greatly from CrossFit and I enjoy assisting CFW members’ own fitness journeys by making class fun, engaging and as informative as I can.
