Claire is an ambassador based in Dubai who coaches, trains and competes in Crossfit. She has been in the sport now for 4 years and has competed in the European and Meridian regionals in 2012 and 2015. Her daily goal is to get better, fitter, faster and stronger with every workout and hopes to compete again in 2016.
Claire has been involved in the sport and fitness industry from an early age where she began as a gymnast at 9 years old. Her regular training and exercise habits carried over into adult life where she then coached gymnasts to competition level back home in the UK. Always busy, always active and always on the move, Claire taught group fitness classes such as body attack, spin, grit and balance from the Les Mills series. Alongside this grew passion for good nutrition and living healthy, she began to train people one on one to share her experiences and educate people on how to better themselves.
Claire believes it is important to look after your body physically and mentally and balances life with fun and fitness. With a strong field of females to compete with in the UAE, Claire grinds hard daily to get to her goals, rises to the challenge and gets the work done. She hopes to train kids in Crossfit this year to educate children from a young age about the importance of eating, moving and being healthy.
