Head Coach & DIrector

Brendan is a strength and conditioning coach with over 10 years of experience in the fitness industry.

Instead of pursuing professional sporting opportunities, he chose to fulfil a desire to serve his country in the Australian Army. With 10 years of military service, Brendan soon realised that he had a gift for teaching and a passion for health and fitness. He began training the CrossFit methodology and has never looked back. Brendan has since retired from competitive sport and now focuses on passing his knowledge and experiences through training his athletes.

In 2011, Brendan was selected for the Aus­tralian Weightlift­ing Fed­er­a­tion Coach Men­tor Pro­gram in the lead up to the Delhi Com­mon­wealth Games.

Starting out in the Northern Territory at CrossFit Territory under the watchful eye of three-time regional athlete Brendan Southwick, Richie quickly developed a passion for the sport of CrossFit.

During this time he gained great insight and understanding into the world of CrossFit and the strategies used to not only train as an elite athlete but coach others new to the sport.

Lucky is a highly capable mentor with a passion driven toward helping others achieve their goals. His friendly nature and laid back persona makes him an excellent communicator.

Stacey

Stacy Wagman- Lead Coach

Coach

Stacy has been CrossFit­ting for about five years includ­ing dur­ing, and after two preg­nan­cies. Stacy loves CrossFit because it is always dif­fer­ent, you never get bored.

Stacy espe­cially likes coach­ing because she is able to watch and help peo­ple achieve per­sonal bests and learn new skills every ­day. The CrossFit com­mu­nity pro­vides a sup­port­ive and friendly envi­ron­ment that makes get­ting results easy – if you are will­ing to put in the effort.

  • ASCA Level one coach, in Strength and Con­di­tion­ing
  • CrossFit Level One Trainer
