I started lifting weights at home at age 15, doing simple barbell and bodyweight movements, I guess you could say I was doing CrossFit before I even knew what CrossFit was. From there I became obsessed with anything fitness related. After high school I attended Victoria University completing my Cert 3+4 in fitness, and shortly after I began working as a gym instructor with an instinctive drive to help people better themselves.
I worked at two other gym’s before I came to Crossfit Blackburn, and in that time I completed many different educational courses including kettlebell training, sports nutrition, suspension training, boxing, cycle class, strongman training, and of course….CrossFit. I have trained people young and old, for everything including weight loss, muscle building, injury rehab, and sport specific fitness. With a broad knowledge of different training methodologies and a passion for programming on any level, I can get the most out of people, whether it be getting back into shape or getting ready for a sports or CrossFit competition. I take a special interest in advanced Olympic lifting, power lifting, and gymnastics

At the completion of Year 12, I took up swimming teaching and towards the end of my swimming career I took up coaching swimming for my club. I have been teaching and coaching swimming since 1996.
Prior to the discovery of CrossFit in September 2013, I was boxing and had just commenced some gym work in preparation for Tough Mudder (leading to the introduction of CrossFit due to a member of CrossFit Blackburn); I fell in love with CrossFit instantly. During my time at CrossFit Blackburn I was introduced to Controlled Strength Yoga and currently completing my RYT200, Controlled Strength hours.
My time at CrossFit Blackburn has been some of the best times, the support and assistance by all has made me a better person and I hope that I can offer the same assistance and support to members.

“I first heard about Crossfit through a client and as usual got on the HQ website and was instantly blown away by not only how intense it looked but at how Crossfit was telling everyone of all walks of life that YOU could achieve things that most would think Olympians could only learn in their lifetime. In short it would deliver you to your genetic potential.
I believe anyone is capable of anything with a little practice and a positive mental attitude.

“I have always been interested in fitness training of some kind. I studies Exercise Science at Uni which introduced me to fitness and personal training and eventually lead me into PE Teaching which has been my my occupation for the past 14 years. I played a lot of sport growing up and through my 20’s. However, completing the Melbourne Marathon in 2012 was definitely one of the most challenging things I have every done. These days Fitness for me is about the ‘journey’, not the ‘destination’. I love the challenge of competing as I have always had that competitive drive but it’s the daily training routine and social connections that mean the most to me. Fitness is my lifestyle.
