I have been coaching and developing people for most of my adult life in one way or another and in 2015 my passion for coaching and a love of CrossFit collided when we opened our doors.
As far as I can remember I have always been interested in exercise and have played a whole host of team sports…hockey, football, rugby as well as tennis, squash and athletics.
I’m originally from Pembrokeshire and have now lived in Bath for almost 12 years. When I’m not training or coaching at Valesco, I’m either working for Apple where I look after the Operations in our Bristol store
I started CrossFit in 2012 when I was living in New Zealand. A friend persuaded me to go on a taster session to something I’d never heard of, but from that very first session I knew I was hooked!
After taking part in the Valesco Coaching Internship, I am one of the latest additions to the coaching team and I love it! I have a background in fitness, having worked previously as a personal trainer in a regular environment.
I’ve been doing CrossFit since 2015 and started coaching in 2019. I first trained at a gym near London and it only took me one session to fall in love with the sport. It’s the first ‘hobby’ I’ve ever been truly passionate about.
I’m a coach at Valesco and I started my Crossfit journey towards the end of 2017. I am really passionate about my training and Crossfit is the best and most complete sport I’ve ever done. I love it.
I’m one of the coaches, here at Valesco, and when training I’m normally one of the lesser spotted morning squad but occasionally pop up in during the evening. Outside of the gym I’m an indirect tax adviser.
I joined Valesco as a member in October 2017 and decided to embark on the journey to becoming a Crossfit coach in May 2019 and I now hold a CF-L1 trainer certificate. I have lived in Bristol for 10 years.
