Matt McLeod describes his journey in CrossFit.
“After starting Crossfit in 2013, my life started to make a dramatic change. Living up in Rockhampton where Crossfit wasn’t very popular I started going to classes about twice a week for strength and conditioning for another sport, I started gradually rocking up to more and more classes each week until I was there everyday. Making the decision to stop my current sport and “just do CrossFit”, as I loved turning up everyday to get my but kicked.

After getting talked into getting my Level 1 Trainer Certificate, I started interning at Crossfit CQ where I became a lead coach about 6 months later. 2 years later and I am here at CrossFit CrossAxed and I couldn’t be happier. I love coaching and helping people achieve what they thought was never in their capabilities.
I enjoy passing my knowledge on to members and watching them use that to help them on their way to achieving their goals, whether that be fitness based or personal. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for CrossAxed and this community.”
