Archie is head coach and founder of CrossFit Chichester. He has a background in engineering, and an eye for numbers. He came to CrossFit in early 2011 and since realised that he’d been training this way (combining gymnastics and weightlifting) for some time before he realised it was called CrossFit.

A natural teacher, and constant thirst for knowledge means that he is both dedicated and enthusiastic about his coaching. You’ll usually find Archie taking the 6am class most week days, or taking clients through one to one sessions. His passion is helping people make better choices every day through simple changes to their daily routines. No one is the same, so Archie’s coaching style is very much personalised to each and every client he works with. If he’s not coaching in the gym, he’s hanging out at home with his lovely wife, and two boys.

Qualifications: CrossFit Level 1 and 2. Attitude Nation Level 1 Olympic Lifting. Precision Nutrition Level 1. First Aid at work.
