Our exercise scientist James discovered CrossFit in 2021 and quickly became a valued addition to the team.

Playing representative rugby and hockey at age group level and a nationally ranked competitive swimmer meant Jimmy could transition effortlessly into CrossFit training given the discipline required of high intensity training.

James earned his Bachelors Degree in Exercise Science, and post-graduate certifications with NZ Fitness Trainers to Level 5 has provided a theoretical framework for his broad understanding of exercise programming, special populations, nutrition and the psychology of fitness training.

Now as a full-time professional fitness trainer James excels in his analyses and correction of faulty movement patterns, and his attention to detail and his warm approach is what our members love from him.

Using his passion for sport, scientific knowledge, and excellent teaching skills, James will be relentless when training you. He will lift your experience at Crossfit Newmarket to the next level so you can achieve your fitness and Crossfit goals.
