Trainer Introduction
Passionate. Energetic. Adventurous.

Stacey has always been passionate about Sport & Fitness, trying any new sport she could find time for growing up and playing top level amateur golf most of her life. Prior to starting CrossFit she was enjoying outdoor functional fitness training which of course opened her eyes to CrossFit.

“CrossFit gave me that perfect outlet for adrenaline and speed so I could remain relaxed and patient on the golf course.”

In 2011 Stacey graduated with a degree in Sports Science majoring in Exercise Rehab and Biomechanics and soon after started her coaching career. For Stacey, CrossFit is a way of life… something that can be enjoyed every day for the rest of your life.

“CrossFit will always test us, teach us and challenge us both as an athlete and a Coach no matter how long you’ve been doing it.”

Why CrossFit?
Why Not?! It’s fast, it’s fun, it’s forever challenging, always new and always exciting. For most people including myself, doing a WOD or simply just showing up to the box is an escape from the stresses of everyday life. Anyone can do it, everyone is an athlete, it really DOES apply/carry over to what we do in everyday life and most importantly it teaches individuals patience, drive and belief.

Why Coaching?
Being able to share in an athletes excitement when they master a skill, overcome an obstacle, make a PB, or even just finish a nasty WOD.

Helping athletes push themselves to new heights, push boundaries and discover what they are truly capable.

Being a part of the community of CrossFit and getting to experience the passion, encouragement, motivation and excitement that it brings each and every day in the gym
As a coach there is always something new to learn, understand and share – I love that!

Favourite WOD
I really don’t have one! Even a nice WOD full of burpees appeals to me in some strange and twisted way

Least Favourite WOD
ANY WOD after a holiday, some time off training, or a late night.

Top Coaching Tip
It’s never going to be easy, it’s not supposed to be, but each time you show up… leave everything else behind, and give it everything you’ve got.

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.
