Meet the Team

My journey with fitness started in 2010 when i found Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). All i wanted is  to build up my fitness and let me explore my very competitive side. I found I thrived in the supportive and competitive environment and had my first kickboxing fight in April 2011. In August 2011, I represented New Zealand in an MMA fight in Australia. I have competed in numerous public sparring for kickboxing and MMA.

The confidence and strength I found from MMA led to my passion for training women to become more confident and stronger in themselves and I started up kickboxing fitness classes, a high intensity training program designed to deliver results specifically for women in May 2012, which lead us to opening WOF CrossFit in June 2013.

I love coaching  and helping members  to achieve amazing results through healthier lifestyle and positive mindset.

A good trainer helps you to build a habit you will keep for life. After all, becoming a different person means doing things which you may not be comfortable at first.

Coaching at WOF CrossFit is awesome, for me it’s thrilling to see people exceed their expectations and there perceived limitations, that’s really my driving force, when it comes to coaching.

I deliver a realistic, honest approach to strength and conditioning. I keep it sustainable and goal driven. I provide feedback and I record our progress to make sure we are both on the same page. Literally.

I believe in the value of training having a practical application and training working toward a specific, attainable goal. My clients can take away confidence that the tasks and challenges I dish out, I have tested and found to be beneficial. I won’t make them do something I’m not willing to do/I don’t believe in.

  • CrossFit Level 2
  • CrossFit Kids
  • CrossFit Strongman
  • CrossFit Mobility trainer

I’ve always been involved in team sports and also coached teams too, so being part of a community-based exercise program makes it easy to love.
The look on peoples faces when they accomplish a goal makes coaching truly rewarding.

I like to deliver a fun and safe environment for members with opportunities to expand skill, strength and cardiovascular levels with realistic steps and progressions.

I believe that foundation movements are extremely important. Mastering any movements at their most basic form Leeds to beautiful and efficient movements with higher levels of skill or heavier weights. I always practice what I preach.

  • CF level 1
  • CF level 2
  • CF Kids/Teens

    I started on my CrossFit journey in 2016 and remember one push being a real challenge. During my journey I have really came to understand how a small improvement’s over time can reap such amazing results.

    As a coach, I have the opportunity to pass on this to others. I really enjoy seeing how people can accomplish what they thought was out of reach and being in a position to help them realise their potential, each small step, becomes a great stride in their well-being and confidence.

    Everyone is different, and with their own challenges, I strive to help everyone fulfill the journey they are on.
