URX Programming’s Head Coach and Owner

You may or may not be aware that the brains behind URX programming has changed!

JT created an amazing platform for Athletes to grow their potential, create incredible goals then gave them the tools to attack them.

URX still offers the same five programs we always have, giving you the option to not only improve your overall CrossFit game but really focus on where your weaknesses lie – creating stronger, more well rounded athletes:
– The Athlete Program (Pure CrossFit)
– Weightlifting Specialty
– Gymnastics Specialty
– Muscle Endurance Specialty
– Capacity Specialty

I was one of these athletes. I first started working with JT in 2015 as an individual athlete as I had a goal of making it to what used to be ‘Regionals’ in the Pacific Region.

I was already a Coach at my local box and had been working as a Personal Trainer and Massage Therapist – I’ve been in the Health and Fitness industry for over 10 years, and in CrossFit specifically for the past 6 years, I have extensive experience in program design and as a moderately successful CrossFit athlete – so I had a great understanding of how to program for myself and what needed to happen to get me to where I wanted to be. However, I needed some direction and accountability. Just like a Chef who heads home and doesn’t want to cook, I didn’t want to head to the gym and be responsible for my training anymore.

Fast forward a few years and with my best placing of 77th in the Region behind me we created a plan and started executing in the lead up to the 2018 Season and what promised to be my best one yet if we continued tracking as we were.

However, life had different ideas for me and I suffered a major concussion in June 2017. Being the stubborn human I was I was in denial about the seriousness of the situation and in hindsight could have played things much differently throughout my recovery. Hindsight also allowed me to see that this would be one of the best things to happen to me, creating opportunities that I never expected!

A few months down the track I started some work for URX in the background – running the admin component of the business and coming on as an Elite level Coach.

This eventually morphed into learning the URX methodology for programming until I was programming on my own for URX for the better part of 2018.

This also gave me the opportunity to travel and live in Adelaide for 6 months where I trained at CrossFit Mode and continued to immerse myself in my recovery and the URX world. I worked closely with JT to ensure the philosophies and construction of the programming remained at the highest standard and produces the best results.

With great pleasure I took over complete ownership of URX in June 2019 and I have not looked back since – you can be assured that the quality of programming you have come to know has not changed and will not change as a result of this transition. If anything you can expect a massive jump in member communications and improvements in the programming leading into this new CrossFit Season. 

I’ve added more in depth coaching notes, workout intent and adjustments to cater to all athletes plus the addition of our partnership with SugarWOD means you can access your programming and log your results quickly and easily!

I am currently living in Wellington, New Zealand with my husband James and two Bordoodle’s – you can find me coaching at Maia CrossFit or out walking with the dogs.

While my training has taken a step away from the uber competitive, I still take part in the URX programming and enjoy challenging myself in new ways!

I’m looking forward to watching all our URX Athletes thrive as a result of this development. 

See you on the Leaderboard!
