Sam found Crossfit in early 2014 through his passion for endurance events including marathons, cycling, ultras and his biggest to date, Ironman Bolton.

He wanted to focus on strength and conditioning to support what he was doing, so he booked on to a Olympic weight lifting course to learn the basics, practising lifts and combining this with his running and cycling. Then a friend asked him to try a workout called Filthy 50 one day and it left him in a pool of sweat on the floor. From that moment he was hooked on the sport of crossfit, and from then continued and practised what he could from the Crossfit main site.

In 2015, 1 year on, he completed his crossfit level 1 trainer course. This allowed him to start coaching what he most enjoys.

Level 1 crossfit coach
Level 3 personal trainer
Level 3 in referral of exercise and rehab.
Level 2 in Postural assessment and corrective exercise

 

James (known as JB in the box) has been doing CrossFit since 2015 after his physio suggested he try it to help his running.

Once he’d learned the basics and started really getting into the varied nature of the workouts, he decided he wanted to learn more about the techniques CrossFit uses and attended the CrossFit Level 1 Coaching course. He has been coaching at CrossFit Fearnaught since 2016 and really enjoys helping people train and improve.

Outside work, and when he is not coaching or training, he enjoys cycling, trail running, triathlon and pretty much anything that involves the outdoors.
