Sports built the foundation to my childhood, always looking for the next challenge I skipped across a range of activities, Rugby played a big part in developing the mental strength and discipline required to excel in the health and fitness industry, with a need to succeed and desire to push the boundaries Crossfit fed my competitive spirit and soon I found I had got the bug ! After weightlifting for many years and a background in gymnastics I knew this was for me, this led me to completing my Crossfit level 1 & Crossfit weightlifting coaching course and ive never looked back since !

My relationship with sport started as soon as I could walk. I was involved in anything competitive, my objective to always to be the best I could!

As a kid, football, was my first true love. I played at a respectable standard and as soon as I was old enough I joined my local gym. Here, I developed my passion for lifting weights, pushing my limits and seeing what I was mentally & physically capable of.

From there I spent a small stint in the British Army where my boundaries found new limits, I was really pushed to new levels and allowed me to learn to live outside my comfort zone. It was an environment that I thrived in, a test of character and a true game of survival of the fittest.

Still searching for that ultimate challenge, a friend recommended that I try CrossFit! Well my first taster included thrusters and burpee’s and I’ve been obsessed ever since!!

After developing my own skills, I wanted to help others feel the great satisfaction I’d felt. I completed my Level 1 qualification and now I love nothing more than helping others to develop their skills and become better athletes.

I started CrossFit with very little athletic background, I had played some rugby but I was overweight and fitness always let me down. I started going to the gym with my brother and loved it, I always wanted to push harder and lift heavier. I met Tim (the founder of CFA) when looking around for a new gym, within five minutes of talking to me he told me that this was for me, in the first three weeks I went from training 4 times a week to 12, so I guess he was right, I was hooked ! I am now a Junior National weightlifting competitor and finished in the top 4% of the world in the CrossFit open, only 2 years into training this is the start of good things to come. After completing my Level 1 I found a love for coaching and am privileged to get paid to do something I am genuinely passionate about, I like to hold my classes to a high standard and aim for every member to better understand their own body and move closer to their personal goals each day.

CrossFit has been a huge part of my life. It’s even gone so far that I now study Sport and Exercise Science at Loughborough University with an ambition to pursue a career in elite sport. I knew I wanted to coach since my first CrossFit Competition when I was 15. I did my Level 1 at 17, which was as soon as I could. I love seeing all the members of the gym progress and better their health. Whether that’s someone hitting a sub 3 Fran or successfully doing their first full Overhead Squat with an empty bar. 5 years on since I started, I have had some great opportunities with CrossFit and hope to continue to become a better coach and athlete. My favourite thing about our box is the amazing people within it. The coaching team are top class and the community is great.

After attending my first CF session just over 3 years ago I was immediately hooked. I’ve never felt fitter and healthier both mentally and physically. I enjoy competing in numerous Crossfit comps throughout the year, and love the Crossfit Ascot Community. I have a passion for coaching, helping members reach their goals and improving their fitness on a day to day basis. I particularly enjoy teaching kids, crossfit is a fun, enjoyable way to keep fit and healthy.
