Before opening Crossfit Basingstoke in 2013 I was working in the commercial fitness industry as I have always had a passion for fitness.

I discovered CrossFit in my continuing quest for increasing my knowledge and really liked the variety and intensity of training and its ethos. My training was very similar to that of CrossFit so for me it was a natural easy step to become a Crossfitter. It is my honest belief that CrossFit unlocks a persons potential to maximise their performance and so it is suitable for everyone with no barrier on ability as it is so adaptable.
As a coach I have the drive, determination to help and support the members of our CrossFit community to continually strive for their goals and potential, all of whom are individuals and have different challenges to conquer.

Its great to be part of community and see people achieve a goal, go beyond their personal expectation, improve a technique and to be part of a dynamic supportive community
