Growing up as a competitive wakeboarder and schoolboy rugby player, Coach Conor always had a passion for athlete progression and competition. His mindset switched, however, after undergoing knee surgery in September 2016, due to a ruptured ACL; he went from being competitive, to taking a step back to reflect and improve on long-term health and become more knowledgeable of injury prevention in the future. Spending 9 months in physical therapy, not being able to compete or train as consistently as he would have liked, he found a documentary called ‘The Fittest on Earth’ which was the catalyst for his movement from rugby player to Cross fitter. It wasn’t until 2017, however, where he would start his journey and join his local box in the UK, CrossFit White Noise now known as CrossFit Heathrow.
Coach Conor moved with his family from the UK to Winter Garden in 2018 and became a member of the Iron Shamrock family, where he took part in his first CrossFit open. He has progressed into a better athlete and a more well-rounded human. He became a certified CrossFit Level 1 coach in January 2019 and has become a consistent friendly face to see on a Saturday morning.
