ALIAS: THE JUGGERNAUT
CCF Since: January 2015
How did you find CrossFit: I entered to compete in the inaugural "Fittest in Cape Town" event in 2011 held by Cape CrossFit. I had no idea it was a CrossFit competition and at the time wouldn't be able to tell you what it was all about either. Since then I've been training to compete at the highest level and have never looked back.
What is your favourite thing about coaching CrossFit:
Positively challenging people's perceptions of what they are physically & mentally capable of.
Why Cape CrossFit:
CCF is the original CrossFit in CapeTown. CCF has one of the most competitive training programmes in Africa, so aligning myself with the biggest & strongest brand in Cape Town was a no brainer.
What would be the goal for your coaching career:
To partake in running the most successful CrossFit Box in Africa. Partake in running a successful weightlifting club within SA/Africa. Be a part of the coaching staff to send team or individual to the CrossFit Games. Work with high-performance sports teams using CrossFit Training Modalities
Tell us something about yourself that we didn't know:
I'm afraid of heights. I can climb a rope in a WOD but I can't climb a ladder!
