ANNIE GALE

Co Owner and Coach

I have always had a keen interest in fitness and health, as a child and teen basketball was my sport of choice and I was a long standing member of various Globo gyms and worked with various personal trainers over the years.

I discovered CrossFit in 2011 when I walked into my first session knowing nothing of the sport and have never looked back, to me I had found what the true definition of health and fitness is. Constantly varied, measurable, it is broad general and inclusive therefore the community and comradery of like minded people that is developed is a beautiful thing. You just don’t get this anywhere else. It doesn’t matter your age, gender or size CrossFit is for everyone.

As you can tell CrossFit changed my life for the good and I knew I wanted to share that with others. I started my coaching journey in 2014, I went on to complete my Cert III in Fitness to have a greater understanding of the human body and how it works.

I am constantly expanding my knowledge through courses, training and learning from others in the industry, I’m a 38 year old mother of two and I finally worked out what I wanted to do when I grew up, Its never too late!

CRAIG WOOLHAM

Co Owner and Coach

No one in my family was really interested in sport but I loved having a crack at anything. My first love was football which I played from 5 years old until my early thirties, after football I needed a new challenge and took up triathlons. However I missed the team aspect of football, I was looking for a new challenge and found CrossFit in 2011. I had just quit my desk job to follow my passion of working in the fitness industry and had recently passed my Personal Training exams, I saw CrossFit and wasn’t really sure what it was but something about it drew me in. Rather than find a local CrossFit gym and start there like a sensible person would, I decided to get fully immersed and do the CrossFit Level 1 coaches course! That was a baptism of fire, amongst others who had done the sport for a while I was there, staring at all the fit males and females and wondering it I had bitten off more than I could chew! But, everyone was so welcoming and I started my journey – which led to Annie and I opening CrossFit Three Flow in 2016!

Why I love CrossFit could fit multiple pages but the two biggest reasons are:
1. How inclusive it is. Anyone of any age or fitness background can do this sport, you just need a quality on boarding process and then guidance from your coach to ensure the level you start at is suitable for you.
2. I also love the community, I’ll admit to be very biased but the members of CrossFit Three Flow are amazing, we couldn’t wish for a better group of incredible people to have fun with each and every day.
 
Fitness and health is a long journey, I want you to find something that you love doing in an environment you want to be in and just keep doing it! This is what CrossFit Three Flow was set up for and we’d love you to contact us to see how we do CrossFit and how it can help you.

COACH

I started my fitness journey in 2006 after completing a transformation competition. The competition motivated me to improve personally and I wanted to officially start helping others through their journey. This inspired me to start personal training after successfully completing Certificate III and IV. I discovered CrossFit in 2008 and immediately fell in love with the CrossFit approach and the continuing challenges and improvements that it brought to my life. I started training, competing and coaching after completing my CrossFit Level 1 certificate in 2009. I competed in the first CrossFit regionals in Australia in 2009 and continued to compete at regionals until 2011. I have been training CrossFit clients since 2009 and have enjoyed training a variety of people, from those looking to improve their quality of life through to members seeking competition success. I was very privileged to have been a part of a coaching team for regional athletes for 5 consecutive years (2011-2015).

I thrive on working with and seeing people achieve their best through CrossFit. I chose CrossFit ThreeFlow as a place for myself to train as a member and to be a part of the training team as it matches my beliefs in what CrossFit is all about packaged with the awesome CrossFit ThreeFlow community.

COACH

I grew up playing and participating in a wide range of sports including Tennis, Swimming, Karate and Athletics. From the age of 10, I found my passion in Football (soccer) and played in boys teams until the age of 15. From primary school until the end of college I represented the ACT in both Football and Futsal codes. After suffering a complete ACL rupture in 2006 and almost 15 years in the sport, I decided it was time to hang up the boots to begin the next chapter of my journey in health and fitness.

I spent a number of years in globo gyms feeling unexcited about the environment.  I missed the community feel of team sports and I also missed competing, so I set out to find the next challenge. In 2012 I began training in a functional fitness facility and rediscovered my passion for a sport. By 2014 I transitioned to CrossFit, playing Football came naturally, CrossFit did not. It challenged me more than any other sport previously had and I loved it. I never my body would be capable of doing what I do now, it’s incredibly empowering.

After my own transformation journey, I was inspired to begin my road to coaching and started my certificate III & IV in 2013, and completed my CrossFit Level 1 in the same year.

Fostering self confidence and personal growth in a positive environment empowers people to overcome adversity both in and out of the gym. Being part of the process that change’s people’s perception about what they’re capable of achieving is incredibly rewarding. This is why I love coaching and CrossFit.

COACH

During my adolescent years, I was heavily involved in sport, including rugby, soccer and basketball. Since retiring from competitive sport, I used the gym as my main source of fitness and floated between various gyms across Australia. Once I qualified as a physiotherapist in 2013, I began to encounter more and more patients who were attending CrossFit boxes and they all echoed the same positivity and repeatedly described the health benefits of this style of training. These were not just limited to physical but also mental.

It wasn’t until I met Craig that I was convinced to give CrossFit a try and I’ve never looked back since. I always tell people that I’m fitter now in my 30’s than I was in my 20’s and it’s a testament to the programming by Annie and Craig and the commitment from all of the coaches to try and push you to achieve things that you may have once thought unattainable. I have made and continue to make numerous friendships and ‘bromances’ within the gym and it definitely has become as much about the fitness as it is about the social interaction.

I enjoy applying my knowledge as a sports and exercise physiotherapist in a gym setting and helping our members with their personal goals and rehab needs. CrossFit is scaleable for everyone and it doesn’t matter how fit you are, everything can be tailored for you.
