About Annie

CrossFit 4504 Coach Annie - Narangba Fitness Centre

Hi, I’m Annie!

Unlike most CrossFit coaches, I wasn’t very sporty growing up or in my 20s and 30s. I was a video game nerd. I accidentally discovered CrossFit in 2013 when I wanted to focus on my health a little more instead of my career. At the time, I thought I was getting a PT session, only to find myself in a group session. There was a lady who did a bar muscle up that day and I knew this was for me.

During the past six years, I’ve taken breaks to focus on running, and to have two more children, so I’m very familiar with the scariness of starting, and re-starting CrossFit and rehabilitating. For this reason, scaling in CrossFit is a real passion of mine and is the real driver for me to take my CrossFit Level 1 certificate and become a Coach. I GET IT! Not all of us are elite CrossFit athletes, nor should we be. I want YOU, the everyday person to feel empowered in your own body and know you are strong and capable. When I push you in a class it’s because I see your potential and know you can do it. I’m in your corner, always!

For this reason, I am also an advocate for women who want to train during pregnancy and make a sustainable return to performance, lifestyle, function, career and activity in their postpartum chapter. I’ve extensive training under some of the best mentors in the country to be able to provide you with advanced pregnancy and postpartum modifications.

Since training consistently again now for the past two years, I’ve competed in a few team competitions.  Our community inspires me every day to be my best self. I’m right there with you, training and sweating. This is what CrossFit is all about. See you in class!
