Shane started CrossFit in July of 2012, and was very out of shape and not pleased with how he felt or looked. It was a lot of effort to muster up energy to look after and play with his kids. He messaged his good friend Gillyon and asked her about this strange type of workouts she was doing. He came in to check out CrossFit Moncton and it happened to be the Hopper weekend. He watched everyone for a while and looked at his wife and said we gotta try this! Shane has been loving it ever since.
Shane has a background in body building and powerlifting type training, and by far this has topped all of them. Once he gets hooked on something, he’s all in. Shane has become very passionate with CrossFit and nutrition. His experience in the first few years with our amazing coaches was so rewarding, he wanted to help everyone else achieve their goals.
Shane says, “As good as it is to get PR’s or achieve a new skill, I still have more excitement getting our members PR’s more. To know I have helped someone improve in one way or another is one of the best things I get to do! Every time I walk through the doors at CrossFit Moncton, whether it be as a coach or an athlete I am better for it every single time.”
As a CrossFit Level 2 coach, he loves teaching and coaching all movements, the more challenging the better. Especially when the person doesn’t think they can do it, then Bam… there it is!
