Coaches

We have a number of coaches on staff to assist you in your training.


 

Scott Lipman
Co-Owner & Coach

Scott has been using the CrossFit training methodology since 2010 and has trained alongside some of Australia’s fittest athletes. His passion and enthusiasm for the ‘Sport of Fitness’ is not only contagious but also addictive. He came across CrossFit though a friend of his that was using CrossFit in the Army and encouraged him to start. After falling in love with it he decided to open a Box and hasn’t looked back since. He looks at fitness as a lifelong journey with no short cuts. “I believe that how we train in the gym should reflect our lifestyles, practicing functional movements can really make our lives better.” He loves getting everyone involved, from his children through to his dad and seeing them not only improve but have fun. “Seeing the look on people’s faces when they achieve something that they couldn’t previously do is the reason I do what I do. CrossFit has changed my life and I couldn’t imagine life without it.”

Favourite CrossFit/motivational quote: “Find your weaknesses, make friends with them, then beat them to death” Chris Spealler, and, “Whether you think you can or you think your can’t you’re right.”

Brittany Cristaudo
Coach

Brittany was introduced to CrossFit in 2012 after looking to improve her fitness for a triathlon. 
She soon formed an addiction for this type of training and hasn’t looked back since. 
CrossFit makes the once thought of impossible, possible through consistent training at intensity with variable movements and workout styles. 
‘When I first started CrossFit, I couldn’t do 10 push ups on my toes. To think I would now be doing handstand push ups for reps still amazes me and gives me great passion for the Sport.’

Brittany completed her Level One in CrossFit June 2017.
‘I love coaching because I love contributing to the way people feel about themselves. ‘ 
When members become a part of the CrossFit community it’s not just their physical appearance that changes it’s their mental state around training that also reflects in their whole life. A mental preparedness and zest for life. That’s why I love Coaching and being a part of the CrossFit community.’

Chris Knight
Coach

Chris first came across CrossFit in 2014 after finishing university and competing in team sports. Since then his passion for moving functionally has been addictive. He began coaching in 2016 with the desire to pass on his experiences from competing in local CrossFit competitions.
