Sally encourages others to share her enthusiasm for being fit and healthy. She has always enjoyed being actively engaged in sports and physical activity, which included playing hockey to county level when at school and, as an adult, cycling, orienteering, and running. She's a member of a Running Club, & especially enjoys hill running and cross country (yes really!). In 2014 Łukasz encouraged her to try out CrossFit and she finds it a fun and effective way to build strength & conditioning that help her outdoor activities.

As well as being a qualified personal trainer, Sally has a degree in Sports, Coaching & Exercise Science, and a research degree in muscle physiology. She has continued to develop as a coach, and in addition to being a CrossFit Level 2 trainer, has taken courses in CrossFit Masters (i.e. scaled exercises for the over-35s), GP Exercise Referral, in the design of Pre & Post Natal Exercise programmes, and in the application of RockTape.

Sally broke her arm as a child and the way it was set means that she is unable to get into position for some of the standard movements used in CrossFit. She finds this frustrating but also a useful reminder that CrossFit can be adapted to suit all capabilities.

Sally likes to keep a sense of fun in training, while still encouraging you to work your socks off.

Fondness For Press Ups

While recognising that press ups are a great exercise, Sally clings on firmly to the belief that it's her long arms that make them particularly difficult.
