MARK WILLIAMS - HEAD OF CROSSFIT
I joined the army at 16 straight out of school and at 18 moved with them to Germany, and that’s really where I found my love for sport and fitness. I competed in football, swimming, rugby and cross country; I also completed two tours of Afghanistan within my 8 years of service.
At 21 I moved back to the UK to Bath which is where, a few years later, I discovered CrossFit. While in Bath I completed my Physical Training Instructors course, and went on to program and run the Army gym with a small team. I have previously run a CrossFit box – which gave me a taste of things to come!
Over the years I have competed in many team and individual competitions, both with In2 and with outside teams. As part of a team I won The British Indoor Rowing Championship and Core Performance, and also came 3rd at Inferno. For the charity Help for Hero’s I competed 5 marathons in 5 days.
The biggest drive I get from coaching is seeing people hit their goals, and I love building relationships with people from all walks of life.

JOE WALKER - COACH
My passion for sport and fitness really started when I joined the Army at the age of 18. During the last 20 years I have competed at Regimental and Army level in Running, Swimming (including a relay Channel crossing), Ironman and double Ironman distance triathlon and more recently Army CrossFit. In addition to this I have been lucky enough to coach swimming at Regimental level and also deliver a structured CrossFit programme to soldiers from various units around the South East.
My functional fitness career was forged, more recently as a result of a repetitive achilles injury caused by too much running. I started as most of us do, dabbling in different fads of training and it wasn’t until a mate of mine asked to jump in on a “Wod” I instantly got the bug. It was soon after that when I realised I could train a fraction of the time each day that I spent on swim, bike, run and still stay fit and more importantly see fast results. In 2013, I completed my CF L1 at CrossFit Barcelona and since then I have coached in number of Boxes around the country as I have moved around with my primary job.
I feel that as a coach it is important to not only develop an athlete’s physical robustness but also their mental robustness too and, ultimately ensure that their time in the gym is the best hour of their day and not just another chore, because as we all know, in day to day life we have more than enough of those!

SOPHIE LILLEY - PRE & POST NATAL COACH
Sophie is our resident pre and post natal coach and has recently returned to education to qualify as a midwife. After completing her first degree, Sophie decided corporate life wasnt the right fit and retrained as a personal trainer. The motivation for the career change was moving into an area she felt passionate about; but also driven by the discovery that education and understanding around pre and post natal fitness and recovery is severely lacking and often misunderstood.
Sophie has always been active but only discovered CrossFit after the arrival of both of her children, so she fully understands the journey back to fitness and strength as a new mum and how frustrating it can be! Her passion is helping women to re-discover a love of exercise, to understand their bodies and to build their strength in a safe and functional way.
Before becoming a student midwife Sophie ran indoor and outdoor classes as well as one on one sessions for expectant and new mums. She now offers personal training for up to 4 mum’s or mums to be at a time which are suitable for all abilities.
