HOW OLD ARE YOU?
WHAT IS YOU ROLE AT THE OX BOX?
WHY DO YOU ENJOY WORKING AT THE OX BOX?
The ethos behind the reason why The Ox Box exists is something I truly take to heart. Health and well-being should always be the no.1 priority i.e. having sex when you are 80.
In addition, I love the staff and the community we have. Everyone is friendly and isn't afraid to talk to new people which I think speaks highly to the culture Ren and Josh has instilled in the gym from Day 1. That is why even if I am having a bad day at work, when I turn up to the gym to Coach, I always feel energised and my mood completely changes to this positive vibe.
WHAT ARE SOME THINGS MOST PEOPLE DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU?
My secret passion is that I love to play the drums whenever I can. I can also play the guitar and have a few songs that my old band and I wrote on YouTube
Ever since I was a kid, I was obsessed with playing with my friends outside at the playground or out in the field playing all sorts of games and sports. This led me to join a cricket, basketball and swimming team from the young age of 6.
I always enjoyed being active throughout my life but when I started going to University, I wanted my Saturday's back instead of spending all day playing cricket. Therefore, I started training at the local gym.
It wasn't until I started working full time in NZ that I found CrossFit. As soon as I tried a few CrossFit classes via a boot camp, I was hooked! The energy, the people and most importantly, the coaches made the experience unforgettable. I saw how passionate the coaches were and it made me realise that I wanted to do that as well.
I enjoy the constantly varied movements and workouts CrossFit provides and I especially enjoy the fact that I get to share these sessions with my friends. I love to just move and train consistently for longevity and so I can eat all the FOOD!!!!. That is why I love training, especially at The Ox Box.
When I moved to Melbourne, I decided to study a degree in Personal Training and ended up becoming a Coach at The Ox Box after completing the Internship Program. It has been an amazing experience and would love to continue on with this journey as long as I can. There is always more to learn and I am looking forward to where this journey takes me.
Having a balanced work life. I tend to sometimes get bogged down in work and not have time for myself. I am trying to be better at this by ensuring I am getting enough rest at night, I am not overworked at my 2 jobs and ensuring I take holidays when I can to recharge the brain and mind.
I want to one day be a Manager in my current work at Orica or become a Head Coach at a CrossFit gym. I see my self as a natural leader and would love to lead a team to success.
To be able to still move without any assistance at the age of 80. I want to be self-reliant and dependant and not worry about who I need to help me to go to the bathroom etc.
