More commonly known as “Donny” – Father, Husband, Prodigy, Virtuoso
Holding the illustrious position of New Zealand’s 55th fittest man, Coach Donny brings the same passion and drive that saw him soar to such dizzying heights of athletic performance to his role as CrossFit Coach. He enjoys nothing more than preparing the fresh meat for the myriad of challenges that is Crossfit.
Still a committed kart racer, Coach Donny indulges his inner man-child by traveling the country winning big ass trophies from lesser competitors – including being the current Rotax Max Challenge Champion in his class. He also counts the Onehunga YMCA 1 minute Indoor Rowing Championship amongst his distinguished lists of sporting achievements.
He recently completed his Crossfit Level 1 course (while drunk and blindfolded, and playing angry birds on his phone), and has kindly decided to impart his wealth of knowledge. He has a dearth of exercise knowledge in the form of qualifications in Lifestyle and Nutritional Coaching as well as Exercise Coaching and Biomechanical Analysis.
He first came across Crossfit in 2008 at Filex and like many people gave it a nudge first in home gyms and Fitness facilities and in 2012, graced Crossfit Newmarket with his presence. His god given ability and cast iron will left a lasting impression on CFN’s head coach, Jason Sawyer. Says Sawyer of Cunningham, “I have never seen an athlete, living or dead that can match Donny in most of the disciplines we teach here. He is a game changer in the way we look at fitness and we may not see his like again.”
Being so well rounded means Donny does not have any goats as such but he definitely has a favourite WoD. On is 31st birthday he joined a sparse few athletes to have ever completed “King Kong”.
Realizing his gifts weren’t just his to enjoy, Coach Donny now shares his experience and motivational skills with any who wish to hear it and even some that don’t.
