My Short Story
Long story short, I started CrossFit training in 2013 to improve my running for athletics. It didn’t come easy at first as all the movements were so foreign and took me a while before I started to really enjoyed the challenge of learning new skills. I also began to notice what an improvement it made in my overall fitness and how it improved my running. Although I was improving my running, I was enjoying being in the gym surrounded by friends more than training around the oval everyday so I decided to make the change and concentrate on my CrossFit. This is where my CrossFit journey began with new challenges to overcome and new goals to achieve. Due to the number of disciplines CrossFit require, my coach and I reached out to a number of specialized coaches to learn and educate ourselves on how to train and develop in each specific field. This is when my Weightlifting career arose. We started working with an Olympic & Commonwealth Games Weightlifting Coach, Miles Wydall and thats where my Weightlifting journey to the Olympics begun.
There are a number of reasons to why I do what I do but the main reason I keep fighting to Be Better is for the people that support me! Shane, my Family, my Friends, my gym CrossFit Gladstone, my Fans, my Sponsors; its because of these people I keep showing up to the gym and training hard. They are constantly supporting me and reminding me how lucky I am to have so much love in the world. I want to achieve my goals to repay them for their sacrifices they made for me and inspire them to follow their own dreams.
Why I want to Program:
I have been so fortunate to work with such experienced and well educated coaches, I now I want to take it to the streets and be able to share my knowledge and programming with people (just like me when I first started) looking for the guidance and encouragement throughout their own training.My programs are tailored for people of all fitness levels and they cover all aspects of fitness to develop, strengthen and tone the body. There has been a lot of thought go into these programmes as I use these exact same ones to improve my own performance through all my chosen sports.
You don’t have to do CrossFit in order to follow my programs as I have a wide range of clients that do my program for all different fitness ambitions. You don’t have to be competitive and just want to
focus on toning up the body, you could be a spring chicken that is only quite new to the sport and has the desire to complete on the world stage or you might even have lots of experience in training but want to take that stress away from programming for yourself and just concentrate on your own training. No matter what your goals are if you have the determination and drive to put the hard work in you will be successful.
Shane Orr - Fiancé - Coach
I have put a lot of work in over the past few years in order to achieve my goals but it couldn’t have been possible without the support and guidance from my partner Shane Orr. He has been the one to believe in my dreams from the very beginning when no one else did and has done everything in his power to help us succeed as a team in our CrossFit and Weightlifting journey.
