What makes my job worth while is watching his members hit personal bests watching them transform both physically and mentally. I love to see people hit barriers during workouts and kick them down. What makes me tick is that high 5 with our members at the end of each and every class knowing they give it their best shot.

- Kevin Hughes
Kevin is one of our passionate coaches with several years’ experience teaching as a level 1 CrossFit coach. He has a particular interest in the development in the gymnastics elements related to our style of training and is the go to guy for hints and tips to get those handstand press ups and bar muscle ups.
I am a level 1 Crossfit coach with 2 years coaching experience. I coach in Crossfit Newry where I am a member almost 5 years. I also like Metcon and gymnastics. However I’m afraid I was at the shallow end of the dream pool when it comes to brute strength. I’ve played Gaelic football most of my life and I love how Crossfit brings the competitive and team side out in me.

After discovering CrossFit in 2016 he has recently devoted his time to competing as a CrossFit athlete with some early success in local competitions.
In 2016 I discovered Crossfit – since then I have developed a passion for the sport, particularly enjoying Olympic lifting and gymnastics. I now compete and won my first competition in early 2018. I really enjoy teaching our members new skills, pushing them to their limits and helping them reach their goals.
