I found CrossFit in 2016 after my boot camp trainer moved. I was hooked immediately! CrossFit is constantly varied and incorporates gymnastics, weight lifting and a range of energy systems. It was what I needed to keep me motivated and excited about training.
Previously I had competed in netball, athletics and touch football and been a member of many gyms and fitness groups. CrossFit filled the need for competition as well as the daily grind towards long term health and fitness.
In 2018 I put my hand up to learn about coaching CrossFit as I saw an opportunity to share my love of this sport with others. In January 2019, I completed the Level 1 trainers course and was so grateful to start coaching at Flourish with my fitness family.
My professional life is with young people in schools as a Psychologist and Teacher. I love supporting others to achieve their goals and reach their potential and my position at Flourish provides a space for this within sport.
