Jayne Eadie

Jayne Eadie, just turned 30

This is my 5th year in CrossFit and I have trained out of CrossFit JST in Wigan since I started!

I have a full time job in the NHS and I am current taking a break from studying my PhD.

What keeps me doing this?… The competitive edge that CrossFit brings as well as being able to push myself everyday past what I think is physically and mentally possible.

The achievement I’m most proud of is going to the CrossFit games in 2017 with Team JST. My strengths are engine work, weaknesses? Anything gymnastics many years of football make this a challenge.

My goals for 2019? Compete in a couple of sanctional events both individual and team.

My programming is an individualised program off Steven Fawcett JST Compete Programming Head Coach! I have been on this program since day one!

I admire a lot of athletes many from outside of CrossFit the main one being Jessica Ennis-Hill her tenacity and drive to win gold at the Olympics after so many knock downs is something we can all learn from!

Can we find you on social media? Instagram @jayneeadie is probably your best bet but Iʼm not the best on it.

Alfie Beacall

Alfie Beacall, I am 15 years old and have been doing CrossFit for 3 years. I train at my big brothers gym CrossFit Sempiternal.

A lot of the time I have to balance training with school work, which can sometimes be stressful, but I make it work. I enjoy CrossFit so much because I the challenge and the satisfaction of seeing myself improve. The achievement I’m most proud of was qualifying for the European Championships.

My strengths are Olympic weightlifting and gymnastics, however struggle to shift weight at speed. My goals for 2019 are to qualify for British Weightlifting Championships and also to overall up my speed and endurance. My brother Is the one who does my weightlifting and CrossFit programming.

The Athletes / coaches that I admire the most are my brother and sister in law, because they not only push me through my training but also help me stay in track with things outside the gym. Can find me on Instagram @alfie_beacall

Chris Cothliff

My name is Chris Cothliff, I am 36 years old. I’ve been doing Crossfit since October 2012 and I currently train and coach out of CrossFit Pendle.

I am married, have 2 children and run my own coaching and programming business called Odin RX Fitness. I love training because of that feeling of getting stronger and fitter, it keeps the fire burning to push myself and stay motivated. My most proud achievements are my 2 sons, they are the reason I do most things. From a fitness perspective getting on the podium and almost winning The European Championships in the masters category is my proudest achievement.

My strengths are the snatch, I love this movement especially when it’s max out time. I also really like all the gymnastics movements as any workout with them in high volume is usually something I do well at. My weaknesses are deadlifting and squatting, mainly front squatting and I think this stems from never doing legs in my military days.

My goals for 2019 are based around the open, I would like to get in to the top 200 for the online qualifiers but also have a couple of competitions coming up that I’d like to do well in such as Battle of Britain.

I have very recently started programming for myself but before that I spent a few years on the JST compete programme, which taught me a lot about me and programming.

I admire Mat Fraser, for obvious reasons, his work ethic is unbelievable and I just love the fact that if he has a weakness he just crushes it till it isn’t a weakness anymore. I also admire Ben Bergeron as a coach, his approach to the mindset he instils in his athletes is great work.

I can be found on Instagram as Chris_cothliff51.

Hard to pick a favourite quote really but one I really like is “hard work beats talent that doesn’t work hard” we aren’t all gifted but with the hard work and dedication we can achieve what ever we desire.

What’s your favourite cheat meal? Well that’s a hard one, I have a terrible sweet tooth so if I had to choose 1 it would be half baked Ben and Jerrys with chopped up Galaxy Caramel and Reece’s peanut butter cups.

How long have you been crossfitting and where do you train: I’ve been Crossfitting for about 6 1/2 years now and train at CrossFit Forth Valley in Stirling, Scotland

What are the other commitments in your life: I’m married to Mark with 2 kids; Jamie 18 and Rebecca 15. I also have a wee miniature schnauzer called Mollie ❤️

What keeps you coming back for more: I’m the most competitive person ever. On a daily basis the competition is with myself. I train hard and keep going back for more as I love the adrenaline and feeling of achievement 🥰 and I always strive to be the best I can be. Also the people are pretty awesome 😎

What achievements are you most proud of: There been many I could choose from but probably getting to the final of the Athlete Games 2015 is something that I’m still very proud of.

What are your strengths: I love all the gymnastics!

What are your weaknesses: definitely my overall strength but especially the squat and deadlift.

What are your goals for 2019: I would like to improve all my lifts as I’ve been working hard on my strength. I would also love to increase my Olympic lifts. Hopefully the work I’ve done will transfer over to that and PB’s will come. I’m also aiming to qualify for the French throwdown for the first time so fingers crossed. Also hopefully the open in October 2019 will be a good one for me and I’ll make the masters top 200 for my age group.

Who does your programming: I follow the hatch squat program but for my general programming I follow a combination of class wods (depending on what it is) and comptrain. I’ll figure out what I need to on top of that and do that as extra work to make sure nothing has been left out by the end of the week.

What athletes/coaches do you most admire and why?: I admire all my peers and people that go out there every day and put the graft in. This sport is hard work and I admire anyone that oes it and works hard to improve their health and well-being on a daily basis. As far as coaches go I like Ben Bergeron. I just like his style and his approach to things. And how he gets the best he can out of his athletes.
