Meet the Team
ROBERT WILLIAM LANG
Qualifications: CrossFit Level 2 Trainer, Aerobic Capacity Certified, CrossFit Mobility, Mobility|WOD Movement and Mobility Specialist, MSc in Sports Medicine, BSc in Sports Therapy.
I have always been passionate about exercise, competing in a number of different sports for as long as I can remember; from football to athletics and CrossFit to Ironman Triathlon.
At university, I specialised in injuries within sport, gaining first degree honours in Sports Therapy. This led to a Masters degree in Sports Medicine at Exeter. While working in an injury clinic, I found CrossFit and my love for strength and conditioning grew from there!
I began coaching in 2014. Since then I have gained experience from 4 different gyms. Finally, the time came to follow my own dream and open up my own gym in my home town: Grand Union CrossFit.
JENNA LOUISE NICHOLLS
Qualifications:- Crossfit Level 1 Trainer
I have always participated in sports and developed a natural competitiveness when I found a talent in athletics. I was a sprinter, competing at County and National levels, until a bad injury stopped my potential career from going any further.
From here, I did what I could to keep fit and active; joining gyms, classes and going running. However, I always found it hard to stick to and to remain motivated - I just wasn’t seeing the results I wanted.
In 2016, I got roped into trying CrossFit and have been hooked ever since! I fell in love with the community aspect at first (everyone has to start somewhere!) and this kept me going. I felt healthier, happier and fitter and realised that CrossFit was the lifestyle change I needed.
Since then, I have competed in a number of competitions and completed my first half marathons!
