Coming from a strong background in dancing (both teaching and performing), Nic had always been fairly ‘fit and healthy’, but with lifes changes (getting married, having a baby etc) the dancing stopped and the scales went up.
Nic came to CrossFit Shoalhaven in January 2012, standing at 158cm and weighing in at 99.4kg, she knew it was time to make some changes to her diet and lifestyle and ‘get healthy’ – little did she know the impact CrossFit was about to have on all aspects of her life. With almost 40kgs gone, Nic has embraced the fitness industry and all that is CrossFit.
Nic is passionate in sharing her experience and helping people get their lives ‘back on track’. She believes with guts, determination and commitment everyone can enjoy the feeling of strength through accomplishment, regardless of age or fitness level.
‘CrossFit has changed my life. I used to exist in a life where I watched others from the sidelines, now, I am an active participant. Not only have I lost weight, I have gained confidence, strength and most importantly happiness within myself. My stress levels have decreased dramatically, and life just feels easier. ‘

His sporting background is varied. From soccer, baseball, football and athletics as a child, rugby league and rugby union as a university student and then on to boxing and long distance running. Throw in a little bit of rock climbing for good measure.
These days Brian balances being a business leader with the necessity to keep moving and mobile as his days are spent behind a desk. It's what he sees as necessary for himself that Brian brings for others. Whilst he never pictured being a coach, the skills of leading a business transfer to leading a class.
"Constantly varied, that's the bit I love most" says Brian. "I'd never skipped or olympic lifted before walking into CrossFit in 2013, which confronted me in the box, but now I can't imagine my day starting any other way".
CrossFit Kids is a method for teaching Greg Glassman’s CrossFit to children ages 3-18. Based on the principle of Mechanics, Consistency and then Intensity, CrossFit Kids emphasizes good movement throughout childhood and adolescence. Consistently good mechanics translates to physical literacy, enhanced sports performance and fewer sports injuries for kids. Not only that, a vast body of research indicates that exercise is beneficial to cognitive function, which means consistent adherence to the program can have a positive impact on children’s academic achievement.
CrossFit Kids is meant to be BIG fun for all ages. Broad-Inclusive-General fun. Fun means we provide an active alternative to sedentary pursuits, which means less childhood obesity and all-around better health for our children. Further, the needs of second graders and high-school varsity wrestlers differ by degree and not kind; the program is scalable for any age or experience level and accounts for the varied maturation status one can find in a class full of kids. CrossFit Kids is designed to be minimalist; it is inexpensive and often requires little or no equipment, allowing a wide array of socioeconomic groups an opportunity to be physically fit and physically active throughout their lives.
CrossFit Kids programs can be found in over 1,800 gyms and more than 1,000 schools worldwide.

Our CrossFit kids program is broken up in 3 groups:
Note: Children progress as they demonstrate competence in our fundamental skill and show their ability to operate as effective team member.
Tots and kids are a term comitment of aproximatly 10 weeks. Billed weekly through Direct Debit. Family discounts are available for each child.
Unlimited Student membership at $27.50 a week for the Teens are recommended as we encourage our teens to attend a number of the adult classes beyond the Tue & Thur class. True strength and conditioning requires a minimum of 3 to 4 sessions a week, we find this a successful way of integrating our teens into our adult classes. If the teen can not attend more than 2 classes per week in the term fees apply in aligment with Tots & Kratos Kids classes.
