Coaches and Owners
Coach and Owner - CF-L1, CF-L2
I've been doing Crossfit for almost 7 years. I had been working as a manager in a globo gym, but never really believed the in the product and couldn't adhere to the concept. I also noticed so many members come for a short while and leave. After only finding boredom in the globo gym environment I went on the search for something new and came across a Crossfit competition "Divided we fall" and saw the likes of Sam Briggs competing.
I went searching for my local affiliate and came across Crossfit Port Talbot. After a year or so I completed my level 1 and started coaching and have been doing so for about 6 years.
I've loved Crossfit since the get go and haven't looked back, I've seen many more people stick with it and seen it change lives. Myself and the wife (Rhiannon- below) became owners early in 2019, and hope to bring something new to the gym. I've recently completed my level 2 and want to do the level 3 soon!

Shw’mae! I’ve been doing crossfit at Crossfit Llanelli for 4 years. I’m originally from Llanelli ac wrth gwrs, dwi’n siarad Cymraeg!
In 2019 my husband and I became co-owners of the gym and we now coach most of the evening classes.
Fave movements - toes to bar / dumbbell snatch, heavy clean and jerks!
Least fave movement - scary ring muscle ups (but I’m in the process of making them a strength rather than a weakness!)
Cheat food - burgers burgers burgers! I eat anything and everything.
In my spare time (!) I’m a dentist in a busy practice in Llanelli town centre. I live with my husband Andy and our crazy labrador Indi (Indiana Jones).

Hey I’m Emma. By day I am a Full Time PE teacher and a Mam to my two beautiful girls, Elle & Brooke. I opened the doors of CFL in 2015 after hanging up my hockey stick after a long career representing Wales. I have a BSc (Hons) Degree in Sports and Exercise Science so have a passion for fitness and well-being. I take charge of our CrossFit Kids sessions on a Saturday, Team Wars and the evening classes on a Monday. I tend to train when I can - usually during my lunch hour at school or before/after I have coached my classes. I have been fortunate to qualify for regionals in 2012 but due to a tear in my bicep had to withdraw. My competitive goal is to eventually step back onto the dance floor again post shoulder op #2 to fix the ole shoulder.
My goal for CrossFit Llanelli is to have the best facility in South West Wales that is community driven - making people move better and live longer :).

Coach and PT - CF-L1, Personal Training L3, Fitness Instructor L@, BWL-L2, Concept 2 rowing coach, currently studying the Precision Nutrition post graduate course
I’m Catherine. My background is as an academic psychologist, but after getting so much from CrossFit I decided to leave that profession to help people with their health and fitness full time.
I’m a personal trainer and coach, but I don’t have a sports background. In fact, I came to the gym to try to lose some weight (okay, a lot of weight) and live a better quality of life outside the gym!
I understand that it can be a stressful and scary process for some and I work closely with folks who want to develop confidence and an exercise routine that they love.
Favourite lift: I like pretty much anything with a barbell.
Worst movement: anything gymnastic.
I'm still writing out my list of qualifications...
I'mm still deciding what I have to say....
