SAI

Sai is owner and one of the coaches of Central Outback CrossFit. Sai has loved sport and fitness since her teenage years. Pursuing Tertiary studies after high school in Exercise Science and Injury Rehabilitation.

As a true believer in moving well and often Sai has enjoyed and trialled various methods of training, settling more on CrossFit when she first discovered it in 2013.

 

Sai believes anyone can have a go and indeed this is what makes crossfit such an adapatable program, in the words of crossfit founder Greg glassman, "The needs of the elderly and professional athletes vary by degree, not kind. Where one needs functional competency to maintain independence, the other needs functional mastery to maintain dominance." Since it's inception in early 2017 Central Outback Crossfit has helped 100's of members of all ages, fitness levels and abilities gain confidence and move well.

HANNAH

Hannah was overweight, unfit and not happy with life. About 4 years ago, she was going to a boxing/MMA gym in Port Macquarie. The box started introducing Crossfit classes. She had tried heaps of different workout modalities but Crossfit was the only thing that stuck.

 

Regularly going to Crossfit classes gradually gave her confidence and she starting competing in some local competitions with friends. In 2017, Hannah was travelling around Australia, taking short term Nursing contracts in regional towns (but, only those that had a Crossfit box).

 

She planned to stay in Alice Springs for 3 months, however with her passion of Crossfit and absolutely loving COCF, she decided extend her contact to indefinitely and obtained her Crossfit trainer level 1 so she could coach and share her passion with other people.

 

Hannah loves seeing others achieving their goals and being proud of themselves when achieving things they never thought they could do.

 

"I LOVE pushing people to their limits that I know that they can reach!"

 

Motto's- “Smile and let the oxygen in”

“Do your best, forget the rest”

Dislike- Being Hangry, Not listening in class

SHANE TAN

  • Black Instagram Icon

Shane is a massive Crossfit fan-boy! He visited Central Outback Crossfit on opening day, kept on turning up everyday to train... and basically lived at the box. So, we gave him a job!

 

In 2011, he discovered Crossfit at Crossfit Active in Sydney. This was a life-changing moment and he has been obsessed with Crossfit ever since. Whenever he has spare time, he likes to nerd out on watching Crossfit Youtube videos or listening to Crossfit podcasts. He traveled to spectate at the 2018 Crossfit Games in Madison, Wisconsin, USA and even orchestrated a marriage proposal at a lunchtime class at the Central Outback Crossfit.

 

Shane’s special interest is Olympic weightlifting. He has competed in a NT weightlifting Association (NTWA) meet, has attended multiple courses and regularly coaches COCF Barbell Club. He has also travelled to China for a 2-week weightlifting camp.

 

Shane battled with obesity since childhood and has tried many different diet and exercise programs. He now has a much healthier relationship with food and exercise. Shane truly believes that Crossfit can improve a person’s quality of life and well-being.

(ACHPER)

Officially Jeremy was first exposed to CrossFit in a real affiliate in Darwin while living there briefly. That’s when it all started. After moving to Alice Springs and joining COCF a profound passion was forged and a serious addiction the exploring “the pain cave”. Having often struggled with weight, he found the CrossFit regime was highly effective in maintaining a healthy weight range while obtaining notable improvements to physique and mindset. That coupled with the highly supportive community and top-quality coaches COCF has enabled him to undergo a series of positive transformations. From this Jeremy completed his CrossFit level One in June 2019 to help and give back to others all the positive and beneficial experiences he himself had obtained from CrossFit and COCF. He gets a huge buzz out of helping others achieve their goals, learning new skills, hitting PBs and seeing athletes enjoy their experience at COCF.
