As a former Royal Marines Commando I have done my fair share of fitness’ing. Born and bred in the UK, I joined the military straight out of school at 17 years old and served 8 years for my country.
I left the Marines at 25 to pursue a career in fitness. I obtained my PT qualifications and my CrossFit Level 1 shortly after and started coaching at CrossFit Great Stour in Kent, England.
I’ve coached for the past two years in England and also took a 2 month trip out to Thailand and coached on the paradise island of Koh Tao. I first found CrossFit when I was serving in Afghanistan, I was skeptical of all these new movements like kipping pull ups and olympic lifting. However, immediately on my return to the UK, I found my nearest affiliate and engrossed myself in learning from a professional. I fell in love with the methodology and community that CrossFit brings and have never looked back.
