“My regular gym got really boring, I trained and was a PT in a globo gym and wasn’t getting the results or excitement I was after so I turned to CrossFit.” Meet Aaron
Every day we workout with inspiring individuals. Some of them also work for us! We thought it was time you met Coach Aaron – soon to be our awesome General Manager.
OCCUPATION: Manager/Head Coach at CFHE and Remedial Massage Therapist
STARTED COACHING AT CFHE: Over 1 year ago
FAVOURITE MOVEMENT OR WORKOUT: Clean is my fave movement and hero WOD ‘DT’ is my favourite workout
DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN 10 WORDS OR LESS:
The smartest/dumbest person you’ll ever meet, and funny as hell!
WHY DID YOU START CROSSFIT TRAINING? My regular gym got really boring, I trained and was a PT in a globo gym and wasn’t getting the results or excitement I was after so I turned to CrossFit.
WHAT’S YOUR BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENT SO FAR? My 60kg snatch.. It’s feather weight for some but I chased it for a good year haha. Persistence pays off!
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT CROSSFIT HAWTHORN EAST? Everything.. The training, coaches, classes, the people I’ve met and just the general vibe of it here.. Love coming in daily not just to work but to be a part of the sessions myself.
WHAT IS THE MAIN HEALTH GOAL YOU ARE FOCUSING ON AT THE MOMENT? Vanity at the moment haha, post holiday I need to get my body back into shape for summer..
ANY ADVICE FOR ANYONE JUST STARTING THEIR CROSSFIT JOUNEY? Take your time.. It’s awkward and you’ll be uncoordinated and you won’t get everything perfect on your first day.. Enjoy the process of failing and learning.
TELL US SOMETHING WE DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU:
I made my acting debut in a Japanese phone commercial.. I haven’t seen the ad and I never did anything after that but I’m pretty sure I’m famous somewhere in Japan
APART FROM CROSSFIT HAWTHORN EAST, WHERE ARE YOUR FAVOURITE HANGOUTS IN THE HAWTHORN, CAMBERWELL OR BOROONDARA AREA?
The Auburn Hotel… Out in the beer garden or by the fire when it’s colder, doing some work or catching up with friends for a wine or 2 or 3.
