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
Chris has extensive experience in the fitness industry over a 12 year period. He has taught various group fitness classes and been a personal trainer for 7 years, specialising in weight management and sport specific training to now managing health clubs and coaching CrossFit to the community.
I found CrossFit mid-2014, hit my first wod – ‘Grace’ and never looked back. I am now gaining experience of competing in various CrossFit competitions, reaching my first finals comp – Pound for Pound early 2016.
