We have an awesome team of trainers that specialise in coaching CrossFit. We believe that CrossFit coaching is very different to Personal Training or Bootcamp, so we only employ trainers that are dedicated to the CrossFit method, and that have the necessary skills and experience to effectively coach CrossFit in a group environment. Importantly, we believe that CrossFit trainers should lead by example. Our trainers are seasoned CrossFitters and are expected to “walk the walk”.
