He might be one of the new-ish kids on the Niche block but he’s picked up the sport like an absolute natural. Always seen with a smile on his face and a spring in his step, Joel has been an absolute sponge for knowledge and a pleasure to Coach. We look forward to seeing him compete in his first local comp this month 🙌 The big question is… will he pip Richie and take his chance for the ‘Most classes’ trifecta at the Niche end of year awards?
When did you start at Niche?
I started training at Niche in January 2022.
What were you doing before CrossFit?
I previously played a lot of football and worked out in the gym. I have always been a fitness fanatic and my training was often Crossfit inspired.
Why did you choose Niche?
At the time, I was actually working on the same street as the gym and had said to myself for a few months that I needed to give it a go. Eventually I called Stacey to arrange my first session and I haven’t looked back since. From the moment I stepped foot in the gym I was welcomed by so many different people and could feel what a good culture there was.
Favourite movement/workout or CrossFit moment?
Getting my first muscle up was a big highlight for me, it was something I have always wanted to be able to do.
There have been so many great moments, so many goals have been accomplished with lots of laughs along the way.
One random non CrossFit thing about you
I eat a lot of oats and peanut butter.
A regular early bird with the 5:30am crew and always with a big smile on her face, Jess is an absolute pleasure to coach. Never afraid to give something new a crack, she has come along in leaps...
