Coaches Profiler – Ben Hammant
I found Crossfit in 2009 and to say it was life changing would be an understatement. It is the greatest fitness program I have experienced which complements not only the general population but also the LEO/ Military community (which I am a part of). I have implemented the philosophies I have found in Crossfit into my work as a PTI within my primary employment. The changes have been dramatic and speak for themselves. Crossfit not only allows me to perform my duties at the highest level but it also satisfies the competitive spirit which still flows. The beauty of Crossfit is that it is a program which allows for constant development and improvement. It is a program which develops not only physical strength but also mental strength. I am extremely motivated and passionate about Crossfit and the Crossfit Community. I enjoy passing on my experiences and skills with anyone willing to listen. I have experience in running Selection Courses and Novice Courses within my primary employment.
These courses are both physically demanding and mentally draining.
I believe the tools gained through this background will directly complement any involvement I have in the Crossfit Community.

Dan has been involved in sport since a young age playing anything possible but it wasn’t until he spent a year in the states as a exchange student playing basketball that he noticed all the science and background work that went into training at a high level.
After a stint travelling he found himself living in Scotland where he took up Muay Thai and enrolled in exercise and sports science at university.
Muay Thai is both very physical but even more mental, especially the fight side. This is where his degree helped him perform at his best and start his own classes under the Scottish Muay Thai council.
After years of fighting and having the opportunity of getting to fight around the world dan decided to finish up and turned his attention to Crossfit, a sport and life style very close to fighting in the physical and mental aspects.
Dan is a coach that strives to get the most out of all his clients through a relaxed environment and encouraging people to look at exercise from different points of views allowing individuals to achieve their goals whether they are novices or advanced athletes.
