I really couldn’t be happier! – Jade Alexander

These last few weeks have been some of the busiest and most exciting I can remember. This is the time of year when I would normally be winding down and taking time off over the Summer Holiday to recover from the last academic year before preparing for (and dreading) the term to come. However, this year things could not be more different.
Instead of taking time off I studied for and passed my CrossFit Level 1 coaching qualification, started regular shifts at The Hub, began coaching CrossFit classes as well as Spartan Circuits and Old Skool Conditioning, and am now taking on Personal Training clients. All of this while keeping up with my own training. Phew!

So it has been quite the whirlwind lately, but I have loved every minute. Of course there are many changes I am still getting used to – not least of all the early starts and late finishes, and the word Weekend ceasing to hold any meaning – but embracing the power of the nana nap has worked wonders in that respect.

I feel genuinely grateful that I can spend my day immersed in something I love, getting to know a whole range of friendly, motivated, and generally awesome people and being inspired by the energy of everyone who trains here at The Hub. I know this is only the beginning and there is lots of hard work to come, so I am spending every spare minute improving my knowledge and honing my practice through research and observing other trainers and coaches. For now my schedule is manic, my days infinitely varied, and my muscles sore; I really couldn’t be happier.
