- CrossFit Level 1 Trainer
- Certificate in Exercise Level 4 & 5

A proud Māori boy from Ngāti Kea Ngāti Tuara and Ngāti Porou, Izzy as he is known to the 3216 Crew has lived in Hamilton most of his life and has been apart of the CrossFit 3216 since 2014. A sports fanatic through and through, Izzy played sports growing up all year round.

Introduced to CrossFit in 2014 by his best mates he hasn’t looked back since and has enjoyed every moment of it. Having no previous experience in a gym setting, Izzy found the idea of stepping into a gym nerve wracking. But an open mind and a ‘why not?’ attitude got things rolling nicely not to mention a supportive gym community. Izzy truly believes in the principles of CrossFit and its benefits to life outside of the gym.

After being provided the opportunity to intern at CrossFit 3216 he discovered his passion for helping people be active through the sport of CrossFit and headed on to get his CrossFit Level 1 qualification in 2018. As a coach, Izzy finds that the best reward of coaching is seeing members achieve things they never thought they’d be able to achieve and continuously proving to themselves what they are truly capable of.

Izzy prides himself as being approachable, dedicated and filled with laughter and good vibes. His favorite movement is generally anything with a barbell.
