Bio: I work as a Exercise Rehabilitation Instructor in the Royal Army Physical Training Corps, I am married and have one beautiful little boy who is nearly 5.
I have spent nearly 11 years within the Military, 8 in the Military Police before transferring into the PT Corps and gaining my rehabilitation qualifications.
I was introduced to the idea of CrossFit through work, however I only discovered the world of competitive CrossFit and olympic lifting when I started training with CrossFit athlete Barry Mairs (CrossFit 8020). The Athlete Games 2015 was my first major individual competition where I was extremely pleased to place 44th. I have been hooked ever since.
I now follow an individualised program from CrossFit 8020 where I constantly get to chase down Emma Mquaid, sometimes I even win.. if its in the swimming pool.
The program sees me training at least twice a day, my coach Neil Laverty is always pushing me to better myself and believe I have what it takes to make a competitive athlete.
I love CrossFit but I have to say that I do miss the occasional 10 mile run... just don't tell that to my coach.
Favourite Exercise: Burpees, Double Unders, Rowing... anything that makes me sweat.
Motto: If Emma does it, then Im going to too #EatCake.
