Jay Storey

Jay is ex-army and has been coaching CrossFit for nearly 10 years. He learnt in the army the importance of functional fitness and wanted to maintain this when he discharged from the defence force. A friend introduced him to CrossFit shortly after leaving the army and he quickly became addicted. “I have been passionate about health and fitness for a long time and tried a lot of different training programs over the years. Once I discovered CrossFit I realized I had found the way I was going to train for the rest of my life. It’s hard but fun and the CrossFit prescription of constantly varied, high intensity, functional movements keeps you interested, motivated and most importantly gets results. I want to help others improve their lives and achieve incredible results on their CrossFit Journey.” Qualifications: Cert III in Fitness Cert IV in Fitness Group Exercise Instructor CrossFit Level 1 Trainer CrossFit Level 2 Trainer CrossFit Weightlifting Trainer Senior First Aid CPR Certificate Favourite Crossfit Movements: Helen Favourite Crossfit Movements: Muscle Up & Bench Press Least Favourite Crossfit movements: Snatch Favourite Crossfit Workout: Fran Least Favourite Crossfit Workout: Amanda

Corey Evans

Corey is a Navy physical trainer with 9 years experience and in the last 2 years a passive for the CrossFit Methodology “Since starting crossfit in 2020, my goals, passion and interests were flipped completely. From a bodybuilding background to Crossfit, I found myself with a broomstick in hand and no mobility. Dedication, commitment & patience are among some of the things that the sport has helped me with many more. If I’m not at the gym striving towards my own fitness, goals or coaching others, you’ll find me strategizing upcoming workouts and planning my week of training ahead”.
