OLIVER SMITHOwner & Head Coach
My fitness journey started in the late 80’s, while I was still at school. It was the usual thing, sign up at a local gym, get a programme and crack on with it.
Part of my motivation at the time, was I wanted to be fitter for rugby. Like any endeavour, if there is no motivation the desire to continue ends quickly, so needless to say when the rugby season ended and I finished school, training came to a standstill. Messed around with some sort of fitness regime for a while – played squash, went to the gym, cycled etc but never took it seriously.
In the mid to late 90’s my body started to change, as in I started to put on weight. So signed up to a globo gym and once again got on with it – spin class, swimming, weights etc. And that was the scenario for many years.
Sometime in 2007, I was not loving work and as I was working in a restaurant, I was getting fat again – I could only hold out for so long when delicious lemon meringue pie is staring me in the face every day. At the time I looked at what I did for fun, and one of the things was to go to the gym. So I got my qualification as a Personal Trainer at the end of 2007.
I started working at a globo gym in Sydney Australia and did that for 3 years. It was during this time that I discovered CrossFit. And so the journey started. I became a member of a local box, got my Level 1, became a coach and now own a gym. Happy days!!
