Chase Coles

I am proud to have served in my county regiment, The 1st Battalion the Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment for 6 years. I served on various peacekeeping and combat operations across the globe including Northern Ireland, Kosovo and Iraq. 

I was introduced to CrossFit in 2012 and I have been completely hooked since. I have worked as a PT in a leading health club for four years and I have seen the success and results that CrossFit has had in the health and wellbeing of my clients. Over the years I have trained individuals who had been medically informed that they will not be able to move and function correctly without pain or discomfort due to incurred injury or illness. I programmed CrossFit for these clients and it was astounding to me, themselves and others to see their abilities drastically improve and to see them achieve what they’d been previously advised would not be possible.

In my experience CrossFit has made some life changing results in a selection of my clients and it’s these results that have driven me to set up a CrossFit Affiliate in my home county of Kent.

CrossFit has also had a huge impact on myself in terms of my physical capabilities, work capacity and my physical and mental wellbeing. It’s completely changed my life and I’m still progressing. I continue to achieve and find that element within myself that makes me be stronger, faster and work harder in my quest to achieve all in which my physical body and being is truly capable of. CrossFit to me personally is the most rewarding and satisfying way to train. In my eyes CrossFit is the true path to physical and mental excellence.
