Trainer Introduction
Committed. Passionate. Friendly.

Jamie started her CrossFit journey as an athlete back in 2011 and has embraced every aspect of CrossFit into her life ever since. In 2014, Jamie took her CrossFit level 1 and kick stared her coaching career.

As an athlete, Jamie is an absolute role model in showing just how far we can come when we are patient, consistent, hardworking and most importantly when we ‘respect the process’.

Why CrossFit?
It’s a great way to keep fit, strong, mentally stimulated, and healthy! As a bonus, you get to embrace the wonderful, chalky, sweaty mess, the loud music, the incredible feeling after each session, and of course the people. The camaraderie, mentoring, encouragement, laughs and the friendships; quite like nothing I’ve encountered before.

Why Coaching?
There’s nothing quite like watching and enabling someone’s confidence and belief in themselves grow, since they started CrossFit. Whether it’s improving their fitness level, changing body shape, achieving better movement patterns; being able to help people achieve their goals is an amazing feeling. Coaching is truly rewarding and sets my soul on fire!

Favourite WOD
It’s far too difficult to pic just one! My favourite WOD’s would involve the likes of double-unders, box jumps, pull-ups, kettlebell swings and HSPU’s. It’d be a couplet or triplet and involve 3 rounds for time.

Least Favourite WOD
2014’s CF Games Triple 3 For time:
Row 3,000 meters
300 double-unders
Run 3 miles

Top Coaching Tip

  • Don’t take yourself too seriously, enjoy yourself, and don’t be afraid to spread the love & be proud!
  • Understand that sometimes it’s really going to suck, but if you’re patient and consistent, results will continue to come.
  • Bring no ego. Do your best and try not to compare yourself to others that have been training for a years. Let them be your inspiration instead.
  • Listen to your coaches and ask questions.
  • Work on your mobility.
  • Do more burpees.
Why Niche?

Quality Coaching
Many of our coaches have tertiary qualifications and practical experience in fields such as Exercise and Sport Science, Physiology and Rehabilitation to ensure you are being groomed by the best. Our entire coaching team places a focus on technique and form first and foremost so that you get results as efficiently as possible. Let us coach you to understand why CrossFit is both the safest and best way to get physically fit

Specialised Gymnastics Training
Firstly, we are the first CrossFit facility in Western Australia to offer specialised gymnastics training and classes. We are not a gymnastics studio, we do CrossFit. So our gymnastics inspired strength and skill classes are designed to make you a better CrossFit athlete, not turn you into a gymnast. The goal is always to maintain a balance between authentic gymnastics technique and drills and the goals of CrossFit athletes.

You will notice a community of athletes of all ages, sizes and athletic backgrounds. Our members include accountants, students, electricians, lawyers, stay-at-home moms, police officers, pharmacists and grandparents You will be welcomed, cheered on and people will line up to slap your hand at the end of each class. Community is the heart of CrossFit – it’s what helps you push through those last few reps and what keeps you craving and coming back for more.

That’s the beauty of it all. Our community is what drives this all home; think you will experience this at a globo gym? No way.

Quality Results
Finally, we pride ourselves on producing good looking athletes. We demand quality before intensity and skill development as opposed to just doing. This is what our reputation is built on, which is perhaps best represented by our famous tagline, ‘respect the process’. Let us mould you first and then you’ll be unleashed.
