London Crossfit instructor Mike

A bit about Mike

If you could have a superpower what would it be?

Time travel of course. But not sure if I want to go backwards or forwards.

What would your specialist subject on mastermind be?

Human anatomy (not very exciting!)

Favourite type of coffee?

Favourite type is a flat white. That said, If I’m making it at the gym it often ends up as a cappuccino! Current coffee I’m drinking at home is from Perky Blenders. Definitely recommend.

One item of food you would never want to live without?

Cheese. My kryptonite.

CrossFit has been a huge part of my life for the past 10 years.
I was first introduced to CrossFit to help with my rowing training back at university. Needless to say, after the first session, I was all in. It wasn’t just the type of training, the equipment, the community, or the coaching but instead, the unique blend of all of those things that I hadn’t seen before.

In 2015, I decided to combine my desire for helping people and my experience in physiotherapy, with my passion for health and fitness.

I completed my Crossfit Level One trainer certification and I have never looked back.

Being a part of owning a Crossfit gym with two great guys has been a dream come true.

Though it’s pretty tough to keep them both in check…

Being a physio and a coach has been a great compliment. The sweet spot between the two is where I like to operate most with my approach. I truly feel that every person has a unique set of challenges and their own relationship with health and fitness. With a combination of my coaching and physio experience, I aim to help people to train to the best of their abilities while staying fit, healthy, happy and importantly, injury free. That way, I hope to improve their longevity in training and in life.

I can’t wait to see what the future holds for CrossFit Vauxhall, and look forward to bringing this community together with a common purpose!
