Coach Will (Young Pup), I’ve been involved in Crossfit since 2013 and it’s safe to say it quickly became an obsession.

Monnique kofoed

crossfit coorparoo coach

I have been involved with CFC since May 16’ when I started as a member. I first started CrossFit as I was looking for a new challenge as I was no longer playing professional football. It was a scary moment walking into the gym for my first crossfit session even though I have played many years of high level competitive sport, but it was the one of the best decisions I have made. I also understand how someone walking into a CrossFit gym may feel on their first session. I always remember this when I meet next CFC member for the first time.
I have now been a coach since June 16’ and I love watching our members achieve their fitness goals. Along with this I have enjoyed competing in local CrossFit competitions with our members and also compete in individual Olympic lifting competitions. The sporting community has always been a strong passion in my life and Im now excited to be part of many new fitness journeys and achievements within CFC.
