Meet Your Coaches
Coach / Owner / Geek
After working abroad in the advertising industry for 7 years, I decided to follow my passion and retrain as a CrossFit coach. I’m probably one of the biggest CrossFit junkies you will ever meet – my idea of a holiday was working at the CrossFit regionals and travelling around Europe in a van visiting gyms.
Shiv’s our senior coach at Functional U – you’ll find her in the morning doing her coaching thang, and you’ll also hear from her if you haven’t been in training for a week! Shiv has an amazing talent for bringing out everyone’s first double under, rope climb, and pull up! If this is something you’re looking for, then make sure to give her a shout!
She’s also pretty knowledgeable on how to kick ass while only eating veggies!
Meet Em – CrossFit Coach, and 2018 Commonwealth Gold Medalist. When she’s not coaching, you’ll find her training, or in Victorian Schools helping GROW the sport of weightlifting.
She also run VIctoria’s first and only Women’s Only Weightlifting squad. She’s an amazing coach, and an amazing athlete !
Jez is one of the original members of Functional U. When he’s not coaching, you’ll find him spending time with his family, or working his day job as a marketing manager.
We love how Jez balances coaching, family and a 40 hour work week! You’ll leave most of his sessions PUMPED to attend another!
Plumber, musician, CrossFit coach and all round nice guy. Is there anything that he can’t do?
Greg started with us as a newbie to training! He quickly got the CrossFit bug! When our Functional U coaches development course came up he jumped at the opportunity and we’ve since seen him grow from strength to strength! He now coaches at other boxes, and also pursues his love of Olympic Lifting – it’s awesome to see him develop personally and professionally!
I believe time is best spent doing things that you enjoy most and CrossFit is one of them! It was not until early 2013 when I found CrossFit U. I have found specialty areas (movements) that I’ve particularly enjoyed and have educated myself outside the box – Olympic Weightlifting, Gymnastics and Mobility.
