Simon Friel

I had a strong interest in sport from a young age, having been involved in athletics, sprinting and jumping at school, and later represented Hampshire at Rugby

I was involved in ‘X-Training’ competitions between 2009 and 2011 with my wife Kelly , but didn’t feel I was suited to the longer cardiovascular events. Along with Kelly I was introduced to crossfit in 2012 and haven’t looked back since. I enjoy the constantly varied high intensity workouts and love the Olympic lifting.
