THE COACHES

Amanda Wilson

Wilsy joined CrossFit Geo a month after they became a CrossFit Affiliate in 2011. Wilsy has thrived playing in team sports her whole life and was the first girl to join the all boys cricket team aged 11. Many girls followed after.

Wilsy loves the community and competition. She is of the firm belief that sport and fitness should be at the forefront for all – particularly teens, so they develop a lifelong love of fitness.

Liam Ford

Head Coach (aka Diaz)

Diaz joined GEO in 2016.  He came to Geo as an 18 year old straight out of school, full of enthusiasm, with a strong Rugby Union background, and limited at-home CrossFit experience. His first session at GEO saw him perform a 130kg Power Clean.  Just a casual 130kg……

Diaz very quickly showed that CrossFit was what he wanted to dedicate himself to.  As an athlete, he excels.  He works hard at everything.  He embraces his weaknesses.  He trains outside of classes to get better.

This lead to him becoming GEO’s best all-round athlete, and also the achievement of multiple podium finishes in local and national CrossFit comps.

When it comes to technique, Diaz is flawless, and he passes this onto the GEO community when he coaches them.

Luke Fulham

Coach and Manager (aka Bunnings)

Bunnings arrived at CrossFit GEO in late 2013 as a regular member, with a background in Rugby Union and high level Water Polo.

He was about 30kgs lighter and known for his speed and endurance. The barbell romance was instant which has transformed into coaching and competing in the sport of weightlifting.

Isabelle Paul

Coach (aka Izzie)

Izzie brings with her an absolute wealth of participatory experience in gymnastics as well as coaching experience (specifically with kids).  In recent times she has focussed her attention on Olympic Weight Lifting, and under the guidance of Coach Bunnings, has qualified to the Junior Nationals.

Her coaching experience with kids has actually enabled her to be a great coach with adults as she knows how to simplify things and use cues that everyone understands.
