Charlotte entered the Army at 19 after leaving school. She served in the Royal Military Police for eight years before transferring into the Royal Army Physical Training Corp to become a Rehabilitation Instructor. She initially got involved in CrossFit through work friends, participating in the Divided We Fall Games as part of a team before her first crack at the Open as an Individual.

Mum to Jake, Charlotte is another athlete who has to balance motherhood and training at such a high level:

“To be brutally honest sometimes it’s hard going, […] I’m just lucky that with a bit of prep Jake and I can be at the gym for 6:30 before school and I can get most of my training done during the working day.”
