Co Owner & Coach
Lee has four years experience as a CrossFit coach and over 16 years in the health and fitness industry. He started his fitness career in the Australian Army as a Physical Training Instructor.
Since leaving the military Lee has been working as an Aircrewman with CQ Rescue and coaching here at CrossFit 4740. The opportunity soon presented itself to become co owners of the gym along with Kurt.
Coaching to me is about much more than just knowledge, it’s an art’. It’s about creating real relationships with people, because when they trust you they submit themselves to the coaching process and that’s when they can reach their true potential’. ‘My aim is to create healthy Men and Women who can enjoy a better quality of life not only now but in 20, 30 or 40 years time – it’s about longevity and attaining real fitness you can use in every day life’.
Co Owner & Coach
I have been coaching at CrossFit 4740 part time for the past 2 years… But previously in my earlier days of my working life as an apprentice I had developed bad habits in my lifestyle, which continued for the next 4 to 5 years. The turning point for me personally was when I hit 100kgs and I was in the Doctor’s office for medical conditions surrounding my lifestyle.
I had previously been heavily involved in representative rugby union and rugby league but due to work commitments I had stopped playing all forms of sport. Through commitment to changes in my nutrition and exercise I have been able to lose a total of 33kgs, which has drastically improved my health, meaning no medication and I also reduced the frequency I suffered from illnesses.
It is with great excitement and enthusiasm that I have made the career change and seized the opportunity to make CrossFit my full time career. It is my desire to help others achieve their goals through creating a friendly environment where they could learn and train at CrossFit 4740.
