I'm Bear Austin and I am a Crossfit Coach and Personal Trainer here at Crossfit Beowulf. I have been using Crossfit in my own programmes for many years now. I truly believe it is the most effective way to train, and to develop all round fitness. Since becoming a coach and training at a Crossfit box regularly, I have also discovered the amazing community that Crossfit creates, a community that supports and nurtures athletes of all abilities, allowing them to achieve things they never thought possible.
Before becoming a Crossfit coach I served with the Royal Marines Commandos for 10 years. During this time physical fitness played a huge part in my life. Since leaving the forces I have also developed a huge passion for health and general wellbeing. Not just training right, but also eating right and looking after yourself. I advocate a plant based diet and anyone wanting any information on transitioning to a more plant based diet please ask. I have also recently got into endurance races. I won my first 100 mile ultra at the Grimreaper ultra marathon, and came 3rd in my first 24 hour race, running 190km earlier this year.
I am really looking forward to meeting you all and becoming a part of the team here at Crossfit Beowulf, and helping you achieve your fitness dreams.
