Our Trainers

Coaching is about more than just taking you through the motions, a good coach is highly skilled at technique, the ability to give cues, programing, motivation, and able to handle any situation. A great coach can take all of those things and motivate an athlete to become the highest expression of their strength, power, performance and health. Our coaches aren’t just good, they’re great and they create great athletes.

What you like about CrossFit:
I enjoy the group training aspect of CrossFit, it makes working out fun and sociable. I love being able to come into CrossFit, hit a session and then go to the pub after with everyone and have a meal and a drink.
What you like about coaching CrossFit:
I love seeing the enjoyment from people as they progress and learn new skills, ranging from having that athlete do a full squat for the first time, or hearing the yell of joy as a athlete completes their first muscle up. Seeing people improve themselves both physically and mentally is the most rewarding aspect of coaching.
Future aspirations as an athlete/coach/human
I hope to continue coaching as long as possible, the same goes with my own training. I also endeavour to one day finish my arts degree in philosophy so that I can ponder the deeper questions of life in my spare time.

Education and Qualifications:

  • Certificate III in Fitness
  • CrossFit Level 1 Trainer
  • CrossFit Kids Trainer
  • First Aid
  • Kindergym Coach

Background:

I grew up on the Gold Coast, where I was a cake decorator for over seven years. I did gymnastics for four years as a child, and I have been doing CrossFit for the last five years. I moved to Tasmania with my husband early in 2012 and since then have been working as a gymnastics coach at the Hobart PCYC.

What you like about CrossFit:

I love that CrossFit is an holistic approach to fitness that challenges me both physically and mentally. I love the community spirit at CF42s, and the diverse range of people I’ve met during my time here. I love that through CrossFit I have become a healthy and fit human being.

What you like about coaching CrossFit:

I love having the privilege of being able to teach people how to move better & become healthier humans. I love the sense of pride you have as a trainer, seeing an athlete gain a new skill or PB a lift, my most favourite thing though, is watching new athletes come train, learn & listen and give all their heart to every workout & to see them 6 months down the track being able to do things they never even thought were possible when they first came in.

Future aspirations as an athlete / coach / human being:

As an athlete, my aim is to enjoy my training, try & fit in 3-4 training sessions a week now that I have a baby & in time, work myself back up to a competing level.

As a coach, my goal is to keep progressing in my knowledge of CrossFit methodology;  to keep learning & growing & challenging myself to be better every time I coach.

And to be a happy, healthy human being & enjoy life with my husband & daughter.

Senior First Aid Certificate
Currently studying Certificate IV in Fitness
Background:
20 years in the hospitality and  tourism industry. In 2014 I was running my own business, a small restaurant in North Hobart. It was busy! I made my decision to sell and take some time off to explore a new career path…… So glad I did…..I’ve never looked back!
What I like about Crossfit:

I walked into my first Crossfit session back in 2012.  What came next had me falling hook, line and sinker.  My first Crossfit WOD showed me how fun training could be. It was challenging, humbling, fun and motivating. I love how Crossfit encourages determination and the willingness to learn. Oh……most importantly I love the coffee/food dates after training with my awesome training buddies.

What I like about coaching Crossfit:
Having the opportunity to work with amazing athletes, beginners to advanced from all walks of life. Watching our  athletes grow and progress, mentally, emotionally and physically gives me a deep feeling of gratitude that I have had the privilege to share in their journey.
 
Future aspirations as an athlete/coach/human being:

My future aspirations as an athlete are to just keep growing. To keep challenging my body and mind in finding an optimal level of health and happiness.

As a coach I plan to keep learning and gaining the most experience and knowledge as possible. My learning goals for the next to 12 months are to complete the Level 2 Crossfit and AWF weightlifting certifications. My 2 year goal is to complete a Yoga instructors course. I believe the knowledge and experience I will gain during my yoga practice and the course will provide me me with an invaluable tool to add to my trainer tool box.

Certificate III and IV in Fitness

Level 1 boxing and Muay Thai coach

Background:

I am originally from Thailand, I moved here when I was 15 years old. I grew up in an active environment taking part in Muay Thai, sprinting and soccer. I have always been interested in health, fitness and self improvement. I am currently completing studies to become a nurse.

What you like about CrossFit:

Each day brings new challenges and is always variable. I enjoy facing these obstacles head on and learning new skills and improving. You always come away from the class feeling like you’re achieved some small (or big!) victory.

What you like about coaching CrossFit:

I enjoy helping people realise their potential and it’s very rewarding being part of their journey. Plus you get to work with some amazing people and have loads of fun along the way.

Future aspirations as an athlete/coach/ human being:

As an athlete I would like to improve my gymnastics ability, increase my lifting numbers and maybe not complain so much about running. As a coach I feel I will always be learning and seeking out opportunities to learn more. I would like to complete my level 2 coaching cert one day and perhaps even an Olympic lifting and mobility course. As a human I’m looking forward to graduating as a nurse and starting a family with my partner in the not too distant future.

Education and Qualifications 

Certificate III and IV in Fitness

Crossfit Level 1 Trainer

First Aid

Pet Detective level 1

Background

I grew up here in Tasmania and after making my way through college I wasnt sure with what I wanted to do with myself. I had developed and interest in fitness from simple going to the gym in my spare time, this lead to studying it after college out of an interest in helping myself and others.

What you like about Crossfit

I love that crossfit utilises so many different methods of training and different movements in one program. Also the intensity scares me a little bit, but in a good way.

What you like about coaching Crossfit

I love the way Crossfits methodology is able to take two completely different athletes and give them both the same workout. Regardless of where any idividual is at in there fitness journey, we can all join in the same Wod and all end up on the floor together.

Future aspirations as an athlete / Coach / Human being

As an athlete. Im naturally a very lightweight guy and this makes some of the weightlifting elements hard to pull off at an RXD level. I aim to get stronger so i can be a better overall athlete.

As a coach. I want to broaden my knowledge of everything Crossfit has to offer and continue to work with more and more people through coaching its methodology.

As a huamn being. I am currently looking into attending university for 2017 and staring in the Ace Ventura reboot.
