I've been doing Crossfit for almost 7 years. I had been working as a manager in a globo gym, but never really believed 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. My wife and i (Rhiannon- below) became owners early in 2019, and hoped to bring something new to the gym. I've completed my level 2 and crossfit kids and hope to complete my level 3 soon.

Shw’mae! I’ve been doing crossfit at Crossfit Llanelli since we opened in 2015. 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 fox red lab, Robin.

CF-L1, CF-L2, Crossfit Kids, BWLA L1, L3 personal Trainer, Level 4 Strength and Conditioning, Sports and Exercise Science Degree (2:1 BSC(HONS)), Adapting excercies for natal and post natal clients Level 3

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 :).

Favourite Movement - Burpees
Worst Movement - Muscle Ups
Favourite WoD - Fran
Worst WoD - Linda 
Favourite Food - Eggs
Worst Food - Kiwi ( I have an allergy to the furry balls of death)
Favourite Cheat Meal - Chinese and a Blue MOON

RockDoc – Blades, tape & pods

I have been working in the fitness industry nearly 6 years and something I have been passionate about since childhood. I started to fall out of love with the industry due to working in big chain gyms and taking the same classes repeatedly. So I looked for something that I could see in my life permanently and that captivated my ethos of fitness for life. I came across CFL when I moved to Llanelli and after my first coached session with Emma I was hooked. A few years later and I am now a CF Level 1 coach taking classes at my favourite place alongside personal training physically disabled adults with the local council. I love coaching and training with CFL members and the supportive community that comes with it. I see CFL as my fitness family and the box as my second home :) 

 

In my spare time I love skating, walking the dog on the beach, eating all the food and drinking all the coffee.
Favourite Nocco flavour – Miami
Favourite movements – Power clean/Squat cleans, toes to bar & sit-ups.
Least favourite movements – Snatch, thrusters and wall balls.
