Meet The Team
Amy Shaw Founder & Coach
Hey, I’m Amy. I started CrossFit in May 2012 and coaching at Valesco Fitness Collective since the day we opened our doors (as Valesco Crossfit) and have never looked back on either decisions (or although I have doubted my sanity after a few workouts, let’s not talk about Fight Gone Bad or 16.5!)
Being a coach at Valesco I get to share my passion, impart knowledge, provide support to our members and see people grow in ability and most importantly confidence. Being a part of peoples CrossFit journey and shaping that in some way is such a special privilege and the reason I couldn’t imagine not being a coach at Valesco.
I am a Level 2 CrossFit Trainer, hold my British Weightlifting Assistant Club Coach Qualification, a Qualified Precision Nutrition Nutritionalist and an occasion an MC for CrossFit events across the country.
CrossFit has sent me on a massive personally journey, seeing hugely positive changes in myself both physically and mentally I put solely down to finding CrossFit.
The very ethos of CrossFit and the strong community we have developed at Valesco is something very special to me. I just love working out as part of a group, being part of a team and supporting others to achieve things they never thought possible. Opening Valesco in September 2015 really is the dream come true.
