Travis began coaching because he passionately believes in the life-changing benefits of functional fitness. His goal as a fitness coach is to inspire individuals to make long-term lifestyle changes, and he has found that CrossFit’s scalable intensity and commitment to functional movement makes it the perfect program for individuals of all ages and abilities.
Travis is a lifelong athlete who played Australian Rules football at WAFL level, played baseball, participated in gymnastics and has competed in CrossFit a number of times as both an individual and in a team. He recognizes the benefits a varied strength and conditioning program provides to both competitive athletes as well as everyday people looking to improve overall health and mental toughness. His goal is to connect with each person he trains in a way that motivates and excites them to perform at their highest level.
Travis truly wishes he had CrossFit as strength and conditioning program in his football days in which he believes he would have taken his strength and fitness to another level.

I have done a wide variety of sports throughout my whole life. This includes the following on a regional level in Germany: Tennis for 17 years, swimming for 7 and Judo for 6. Other than that I have done Badminton, Table-Tennis, Handball, Running, Football and many other. Through a couple of those, I have been slowly introduced to strength and conditioning, started training myself with 17 years, which is of course way too late. But, better late than never! Since then, I have dedicated most of my time in learning about the human body, exercise and everything that involves movement. This includes studies, research and many hours in different types of gyms.
For myself, I never had much time. Thus, I always designed my training around high intensity, circuit training, and whole-body based workouts. When I stumbled across CrossFit in 2008, it was just natural for me to like it! I am now dedicated to making everybody have fun and move always a bit better than they think they can!

Cameron has always been involved in sport and fitness and has a variety of experience in a range of them, particularly in track and field where he has qualified for nationals. Since ending his running he needed another outlet and Crossfit was the perfect replacement.
Cameron believes Crossfit can help improve your performance in any sport as well as in day to day life and activities. Living an active lifestyle out of the gym is of utmost importance to him, as he encourages anyone to find a hobby or a goal to achieve through physical activity in or out of the gym, or at least using their fitness away from the box.
Cameron's own training involves a mixture of Crossfit, weightlifting, powerlifting and functional bodybuilding with an extremely high emphasis on technique, practice and the "why." This brings about a well rounded approach to training, longevity and injury prevention.
