A community that lives and breathes fitness but knows how to have fun, StrongBox doesn’t believe in pain without pleasure, which is why their classes are effective and fun. With fun and function combined, they take their workouts seriously, and everything from the people they hire to the classes they create, is aimed to inspire and excite.
Jamie Thomas is the senior fitness consultant for StrongBox Gym, and the head coach of Crossfit Quwwa at the The Pearl. A former Staff Sergeant in the British Army Physical Training Corps, he has over 15 years of experience in the fitness industry.
“There is still a huge misconception with people thinking that they have to be super fit to start Crossfit,” says Jamie. As a coach, I hear people say that ‘I can’t do that’ or ‘I will never be able to do this.’ But the beauty of Crossfit is the fact that it is universally scalable to suit all individuals, typically containing a huge variety of nationalities, ages and fitness levels, but with absolutely no stereotyping or egos and no pressure.”
