Gymnastics has always been a big part of Mark’s life, starting kinder gym at just 2 years old. He’s since worked his way into both national and international competition in gymnastics and as well as the world championships for competitive cheerleading. By the age of 16 Mark had made a career of coaching, working with toddlers, teens and adults in gymnastics, cheerleading and of course CrossFit.
Gymnastics is the base for all sports and provides the opportunity to develop and build our body awareness, coordination, control, strength and flexibility. Gymnastics might not be your end goal, but it’s one of the best ways to help achieve your goals in almost any sport.
I love breaking down and assessing movement patterns and working with athletes to improve these patterns to make them both stronger and more efficient. – Because nothing is better than seeing the look of someone when they achieve something they didn’t think they could do… I love being a part of that.
Anything fast and or technical with low reps
i.e. 10min AMRAP: 1 rope climb, 2 deadlift (100kg), 3 burpees
Top Coaching Tip
- Take a deep breath and relax – easier said than done, but it’s a must!
- Patience some things take time but its worth the time and effort
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.
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.
