Adam Brown a.k.a “AB”
Adam is the founder and head coach at CrossFit GEO. Adam’s passion for health and fitness started from an early age and continued throughout his life – surf lifesaving, swimming, athletics, rugby league, martial arts, adventure racing and indoor rock climbing.
After completing 15 years of law enforcement service with both State and Federal Policing Agencies, Adam took a detour in life to follow his heart and become a Personal Trainer. He hasn’t looked back since.
A passion for the outdoors lead Adam to launch outdoor bootcamp training in 2006 under the business name GeoFit, but CrossFit soon took over as his training method of choice, and thus, CrossFit GEO was born in 2011.
Adam has completed Personal Training Certificates 3 & 4, PunchFit Trainers Course, Level 1 and 2 CrossFit certifications, CrossFit Kids, and Mobility certifications, along with a number of Olympic Lifting Workshops.
Adam has not let age dictate his desire to learn new things and challenge himself. At the age of 47, he has competed at a National Level in CrossFit Masters competitions and also taken part in Season 1 and 2 of Australian Ninja Warrior.
Adam has a passion for seeing people succeed. He has fostered this by creating a true community amongst the Coaching Team and members who provide a positive training experience for everyone.
Adam lives in Drummoyne with his wife Johanna and their dog, Conan.
In his free time Adam enjoys knitting, scrapbooking and watching reruns of Beverly Hills 90210. He also likes travelling, hiking, cooking, eating, reading and of course, training.
Johanna Brown a.k.a “JB”
Johanna is the co-owner of CrossFit GEO, wife of Adam and Director of War & Finance. Johanna has always been an active person – a self-proclaimed tomboy as a child who preferred to climb trees than play with dolls. She loves the outdoors, camping and hiking. In her adult life, she discovered Yoga which she has embraced as not only a physical practice, but a spiritual one as well. Johanna has combined her studies of Naturopathic Nutrition with Yoga to lead and also teach a very holistic approach to achieve a fulfilled life.
Johanna has completed her CrossFit Level 1 certification, along with CrossFit Kids, and CrossFit Mobility.
In her spare time Johanna loves dressing up her Miniature Schnauzer for beauty pageants, eating exotic foods (like insects and brains), and playing the ukulele. She also enjoys Stand Up Paddle-boarding, travelling and the great outdoors.
Luke Fulham a.k.a “Bunnings”
Bunnings started CrossFit in late 2013. Back then he was green around the gills and totally new to this style of training. But once he got a taste for it, he literally, and metaphorically, went from strength to strength. His dedication to his own training has seen him become our strongest all-round athlete and his enthusiasm to self-development has seen him attend multiple certifications and workshops to better his knowledge as an athlete and a Coach.
Bunnings’ passion is Olympic Weightlifting and he is consistently working hard to not only improve himself as an athlete but also as a Coach in this highly specialised area. Bunnings has competed at the highest level in Australian Weightlifting, achieving first place at the 2019 NSW Titles, and second place at the 2019 Nationals.
Along with Diaz, Bunnings has taken charge of CrossFit GEO’s programming to design training for our members that is holistic, varied, and deliberate so that everyone sees continuous improvement in their fitness.
When he is not listening to strength and conditioning related podcasts or lifting really, really heavy stuff, Bun can be found at Day Clubs getting down to the tunes of Justin Bieber and Beyonce, and collecting vintage 1980’s soft drink cans.
Liam Ford a.k.a. “Diaz”
Diaz came on board at GEO as a very enthusiastic, and very fit young fella who had just finished High School at Joeys. What followed was a remarkable progression of skill and strength in a very short period of time that saw him become our top all-round CrossFitter. What does that mean? It means he is good at everything!
A few years on, and a few kilos heavier, he has truly embraced CrossFit not only as a Coach, but as an athlete also. He has podiumed at many CrossFit competitions and is hungry to take that next step towards being a Games athlete. He pretty much lives and breathes all things health and fitness. The knowledge he has gained, he shares freely with the GEO membership so that all may benefit.
In addition to attaining his CrossFit Level 1 certification, Diaz has also studied Exercise Physiology, and completed numerous Strength and Gymnastics workshops.
On the rare occasion that Diaz is not at the gym, he is busy tracking down hard to find Pokemon trading cards and listening to Japanese Boy Bands.
Reace Bizaare a.k.a “Rice-a-Riso”
Reace joined the GEO team with plenty of CrossFit coaching and personal training experience. He has a real passion for mobility and offers a lot of new techniques to help people move better and feel better. He also loves Olympic weightlifting which can be observed through his impeccable form.
We are happy to have Reace at GEO to share the knowledge and skills he has amassed over a couple of years of coaching.
When he is not coaching or working out, Reace can be found at Karaoke Bars giving renditions of theme songs from various Disney movies. He also enjoys water sports, particularly wakeboarding, he has an obsession with hamburgers, and he loves to get his groove on at music festivals.
