“What interests me most is the new emerging breed of athlete who can excel simultaneously in both strength and endurance sports. The desire to be this ‘hybrid athlete’ was what attracted me to Crossfit and coaching.”
Thorny enjoys teaching members something new. As adults, we tend to avoid learning new skills and opt to stay in our comfort zone. “Helping a member achieve their first rope-climb, pull-up, snatch or handstand push up is not only the best thing about coaching but the best thing about CrossFit.”
