Crossfit Tamworth Coach

Hannah Owen

I joined Crossfit in Autumn 2018 and caught the bug straight away, I started from scratch and could barely lift a barbell at the beginning! I found that I loved the community and how CrossFit makes you want to get better. My goals went from wanting to look better to ‘how can i improve my skills’. So taking part in the classes since then I have been able to do things I thought I could NEVER do, and loved every second.

Realising I wanted this sport to be more than a hobby, working alongside head coach Mark all through the autumn/winter of 2019, I then became a qualified level 1 trainer in January 2020.
I have loved coaching my members and friends since then and have watched people grow and smash new PBs, and it’s been amazing to watch.

Qualifications:
level 2+3 pt, CrossFit Level 1 Trainer

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

Favourite Crossfit Workout?
Maybe Murph, or anything with Wall balls and barbells (and maybe a run).

First CrossFit Workout?
Cant remember, but I remember who I was with and it was the most welcoming experience, at that point I knew Crossfit was for me!
