Stephen Rose


It’s only been a short time I’ve been coaching at CrossFit London but every time I’ve seen Stephen he has put more than a 100% into each workout and, to be honest, seeing that much effort being put in has given me a kick in the ass for my own training!!!
Keep up the hardwork and
Sorry about the pic dude lol

Kim Mirren

Ever present in my gymnastics skills class, it’s safe to say that Kim has drunk the CrossFit KoolAid and is intoxicated with it. The reasons why Kim started CrossFit are twofold: to get better at surfing and to someday beat her brother and sister in law in a WOD. The way Kim has been improving, that won’t be too far away!
There are two qualities in Kim as an athlete that caught my eye. Firstly, her determination and coach-ability. Kim is always willing to listen and do whatever scale necessary to get better. Rather than feel daunted with the amount of work needed to put in, she views everything I throw at her as a challenge. Secondly, Kim embraces the community aspect of CrossFit. She started a Whatsapp group with the other L1s when no one knew each other to coordinate classes and for general CrossFit bantz. Kim was quick to recognise that the community, possibly the most important aspect of CrossFit, keeps everyone accountable to each other. Kim’s attitude is an example to all!

Yaad Hassan Gorodniuk


We’ve had some members quick to take their shirts off in a class but this week’s MOTW goes to the quickest we’ve ever seen: Yaad Hassan Gorodniuk.

Yaad is a mainstay in my Wednesday L2 class at Gales Gardens and is usually the progenitor of bantz. CrossFit is all about hard work and commitment but Yaad also serves as a reminder that we can have tons of fun while training hard. The coaches and I have never seen someone so quick to take the piss out of themselves.

His constant attempts at a love affair with married member Danny Steadman is hilarious to witness as demonstrated by these pictures.

Keep persisting, Yaad!

Jo Peck


Jo is one of our top athletes, regularly competing in leading events, including Inferno Racing, Tribal Clash and the European Championships. Looking at her performances, it’s hard to believe that she only started doing CrossFit in May 2015 and that, for many months, she trained with us only a couple of times a week. No matter how tough the workout, Jo never complains, she just gets on with it, invariably leaving everyone else in her wake!
