Jim is the Head Coach at Crossfit Bold.
After 33 years of playing rugby including 15 years with Rosslyn Park, Jim was looking for a new challenge and something to get his competitive juices flowing. He found CrossFit whilst visiting a friend in Bogota in Columbia back in 2010. A trip to a pool party in Cali turned out to be the opening party for a CrossFit Box and he has not looked back since.
Jim has been at CrossFit Bold since 2010 and the Rebel Fitness days (ie from the start!!!).
He says "I was looking for something to replace rugby and was bored of the basic gym sessions, CrossFit presented me with a new and constantly varied challenge and has helped me reach new levels of fitness".
Jim is a regular on the Masters competition circuit, regularly making finals and podiums, but never quite achieving the top spot. His quest continues.
He can be a bit grumpy in the gym (he is from Yorkshire) and hates the CrossFit staples of fist bumping and the use of the "A" word, but he is an awesome coach and is always willing to provide advice and assistance.
