Meet the Team

Anastasia

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 programme 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.

  • Diploma in Life coaching
  • CrossFit level 2 Trainer

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.

My qualifications: 

  • CrossFit Level 1
  • CrossFit Level 2
  • CrossFit Kids
  • CrossFit Strongman
  • CrossFit Mobility trainer
  • NZQA Level 4 adult education
  • Swimsafe NZ
  • Triple 1 Care Pre Hospital Emergency Care qualification

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.

My qualifications:

  • CF level 1

I love coaching because I love helping people exceed their own expectations, go outside of their comfort zones and actually enjoy themselves. There is always room for improvement and I love coaching people to make these small improvements that help in the bigger picture.

I deliver a style of coaching that makes members feel comfortable as well as excited about the class they are in. I try to make the absolute most out of the hour from start to finish, warm up to warm down. I can speak to anyone, adjusting my coaching to suit each different need.

Training wise – consistency is key. It is hard to talk the talk if you’re not walking the walk yourself. As hard as it is to juggle everything in life as well as exercise, persistence and consistency pays off

I find it so rewarding, getting to impact someones life in such a positive way. It’s truly humbling when I get to help someone achieve something they thought impossible and there really is nothing quite like that feeling.

I like effective sessions that deliver physiological adaptations by design – I know what is going to be most effective and efficient in achieving a clients goals.

I believe that having a strong foundation of strength and conditioning is vital to achieving the glitzy goals like handstand walking, heavy Olympic lift PRs or a sub 20 minute 5k run. I know that out of 100 people who talk to me about their goals, 99 of them will see accelerated progress to those goals if they work on their foundations.

My  qualifications:

  • CrossFit level 1 
  • CrossFit level 2
  • NZQA level 3 fitness consultant
  • NZQA level 4 personal trainer
  • First Aid

I love having a job that can have such a positive impact on other peoples lives. Helping people achieve their goals no matter how big or small is the most rewarding and satisfying thing i think you can do.
I will assist clients to refine their goals (SMART goals) and provide a plan inside and outside of the gym walls to achieve these.
I believe in starting with the basics and practicing safe movement to ensure training is sustainable long term. Consistency is key, it creates the routine which puts you on the path to achieving your goals regardless of what these are.

I like helping people realize their potential and feel empowered. Coaching I get the help people everyday doing things they didn’t think were possible

I will give clients my 100% effort in helping them achieve their goals. I will listen, evaluate and come up with an honest plan to help them achieve their goals.

Working hard and being realistic. You’re going to get out of your training what you put in. Being honest with yourself and realizing some days will suck but doing it anyway, always striving for improvement.

I find helping people achieve their goals very rewarding, whether it be achieving their first full push up to running 1km unbroken, any little achievement should be recognized and praised.

To me it doesn’t matter what goal someone may have, I am always willing to help and guide them through to make sure it happens.

If someone wants help to lose weight, tone up, get stronger or even exercise for their mental health I am here to help.
