At the start of 2014 I received my Muay Thai instructor certification in Koh Tao, Thailand. It was there and then that I was introduced to CrossFit for the first time. Like many others before me, I was hooked.
Practicing Ninjutsu for 15 years and Muay Thai for over 25 years, training and being active is something I always enjoyed, but the positive vibes and energy that being part of a CrossFit community gave me, was something that I had not experienced before. Leaving Thailand I knew things would never be the same and CrossFit became a big part of my life real fast.
Coming back to Rotterdam I realised there wasn’t a place to do CrossFit in the area yet so I decided to open up one of the first CrossFit boxes in Rotterdam. During the following months I started looking for a suitable location, joined many WOD’s at different CrossFit boxes and got my CrossFit level 1 trainer certification.
December 2014 CrossFit Coolhaven opened its doors.
The following six years CrossFit Coolhaven grew in to what it is today: An amazing group of people who are enthusiastic, positive and will have your back no matter what. A supportive community of individuals who celebrate each other’s success.
CrossFit Coolhaven welcomes people of all ages and backgrounds no matter what your current level of fitness or experience is.
