Kath was introduced to Crossfit in 2008, right at a time when she was feeling the ill effects of heavy endurance training. The principles of Crossfit immediately resonated with her and once she became involved with the Crossfit training methodology herself it was a quick process to incorporate it into all of her clients training.
As a Personal Trainer, Kath feels that there is no substitute for the lessons learnt when pursuing ultimate health and fitness. Personal traits of dedication, commitment, strength and sacrifice are all refined in the walls of a tough fitness program like CrossFit. Kath views her job as a true privilege – being able to aid, guide, support and strengthen those committed to being the best they can be.
