Coach

What I have found most rewarding about becoming a CrossFit Certified Coach at CCW is seeing the
light that shines in our athletes. When you pass on knowledge to an athlete and the lightbulb goes
Bing it’s the greatest feeling. As a coach, I’m determined to guide as many members as I can toward
their fitness goals.

In my opinion, the best thing about CrossFit is that it is challenging for athletes of all fitness levels;
whether you’re a Games Athlete or a Causal CrossFitter. I’ve been a member of the CrossFit
Community for a couple of years – and I’ve been hooked since my first WOD. It will always be an
inclusive sport and anyone can be involved. This is easily the reason why I love having an opportunity
to be a part of the CCW team. We have a diverse community of athletes – varying in age and level of
fitness, which really keeps us coaches on our toes as no two days are the same.

As a member of CCW I’m known as a few different things – they call me Rookie, Joker and Youngster to
name a few. I have a laid-back attitude and never take things too seriously. Occasionally you’ll hear
me play “Torn” by Natalie Imbruglia as loud as possible, and more often than not I will be using an
absurd amount of chalk (much to the dismay of Director Brian). All being said, when the clock starts
counting down from 10 you know its Game Time – and that’s when my competitive side kicks in.
