JOJO

Co-Founder and Coach

With a lifetime dedicated to high energy sports, JoJo started her first CrossFit movement at age 7 by completing a headstand! She was first introduced to CrossFit in Poland, her home country, where she began her competition training. JoJo placed 6th in the CrossFit Championships in Poland in 2012, and over the next two years competed in 12 different CrossFit competitions across the world, and of course securing 1st place in Poland in 2013 and 2014! While training competitively, JoJo completed her physiotherapy degree, as well as qualifications as a Crossfit Level 2 coach, and specialist coaching courses including CrossFit gymnastics, kettlebell workshops, orthopedic medicine, and olympic weightlifting. JoJo has spent over 10 years coaching sports, including 6 years coaching CrossFit and managing the CrossFit Krakow box in Poland. She opened CrossFit Thao Dien in 2017 and aims to spread her infectious love of CrossFit training, and creative programming to always challenge her clients, as well as ensuring that they understand their own bodies and how to develop their technique and skill set to reach their goals.

Originally from Boston Massachusetts (USA), Barkley competed in many sports from a young age (soccer, swimming, football).  He was introduced to CrossFit at University, but it really grabbed his attention in 2016 after he graduated. He trained at the famous CrossFit Back Bay in Boston while working as an underwriter for a fortune 100 company . Once he took CrossFit more seriously he lost nearly 50 pounds (23kg) in weight, and never looked back. He loves the variety, the community and the challenge that this type of training brings. He then qualified as a CrossFit Level 1 coach, and teacher, and has been voted "most likely to talk about CrossFit" wherever he goes!

TRANG

CrossFit Coach

Trang was born and grew up in Hanoi. Exercising was one of her worst nightmares until she was introduced to CrossFit and became hooked by its variation, intensity, and the positive energy between members. She started training seriously with CrossFit Blacksburg in Virginia,  USA, while working as an accountant... but she spent more time at CrossFit than in the office! Realising that her heart was in the world of fitness, she completed her CrossFit coaching qualifications and moved back to Vietnam to start her journey as a CrossFit coach to inspire the next generation in being fit and healthy. She is a CrossFit Level 2 coach, joined the CrossFit Thao Dien team in March 2018 and hasn't looked back to accounting since! In 2019 she achieved "Fittest in Vietnam" by ranking 1st in Vietnam in the CrossFit Open!

With a long background in competitive rowing and cycling, but with very few medals to show for all his sweat and mileage, Will was reluctantly dragged to CrossFit one-day by his wife. Despite his love for outdoors sports, he was immediately impressed by the variation, the emphasis on coaching movements, and the friendships found in puddles of sweat on the floor in a CrossFit gym. Having coached softball, rowing and cycling in the UK, including leading the ODI Unicorns to 2014 'best newcomer' and three consecutive playoff appearances, he now brings his enthusiasm for team sports to CrossFit Thao Dien. Will's passion is making sport and exercise fun, sociable and enjoyable and ensuring you'll want to come back for more training!

WILL

CrossFit Coach

After discovering Crossfit back in the dark ages of 2008, Anthony quickly became addicted to working out with others, and it wasn’t long before he started his coaching career after completing his personal training course. Since then he has coached all over the world with time spent in England, Fiji, New Zealand, Jordan and now Vietnam.
Anthony’s biggest motivator is seeing people achieve goals they never thought was possible whilst having fun doing it! 

Alexi grew up in rural Northern Ireland but never really became serious about exercise until his early twenties. Prior to CrossFit he spent some time working out in generic gyms, following bodybuilding regimes but found most of them boring. When he began studying in Cardiff in 2016 for his PGCE teaching certificate he tried out a class in the local CrossFit gym and immediately became hooked! Alexi then took his Level 1 coaching qualification and has loved every minute of it. Alexi’s dream is to share his passion for CrossFit with as many people as possible, helping everyone to lead more active and healthy lives. He is also striving to begin competing in RX division competitions in 2020, so watch this space!

WHAT OUR MEMBERS SAY

CrossFit Thao Dien has helped to change my life and turn my health around. Having not done exercise in years, I started CrossFit. Over 5 months I've lost 12kg, got stronger, but more importantly I've rediscovered my love for health & fitness. The amazing trainers teach the technique, and help you push yourself to achieve your best. I'm always learning and always getting better. I love that I've made new friends through CrossFit, it's a great community! It’s the same every time I visit… sweat, laugh, sweat, repeat.
