Introduction

In 2010 I began my Crossfit journey at the age of 14 as an overweight teen. I have never looked back, it has developed me physically and more importantly mentally from the amazing environment derived from community spirit and smart programming.

For the last year I have taken a step back in my own training at Crossfit Perth whilst focusing on studying a Bachelor of Exercise Sport Science at Edith Cowan University and also playing Football (AFL). The knowledge gained through studying at ECU and the countless hours interning under the extremely qualified Jas Pelham Head coach has allowed me to help many clients reach their goals. My aim as a coach is to ensure each clients potential is reached in a safe and effective manner.

What is Crossfit Perth to you?

CFP is my second home, it is a place that has guided to me to be the man I am today.
