You introduced us to WOD Holidays last year, tell us a bit about it and any plans for 2016.
WOD Holidays is travel for the new generation.
It is a company designed to offer holiday packages to fitness enthusiasts. At WOD Holidays, the target audience are primarily CrossFit participants & their partners. The fitness sector is a fast growing emerging space & WOD Holidays provides the platform for both everyday and competitive athletes to maintain and improve their fitness while on holidays. The packages are designed by CrossFitters for CrossFitters and are inclusive of accommodation with breakfast, airport and gym transfers, high-level coaching & additional activities, not to mention the camaraderie that comes with bringing a group of like-minded people together.
This year I have two locations that offer 5 or 6 day packages. My goal is to bring people from the community in the UK and Ireland together for an amazing week. I feel 2016 is going to be a big year for the business and I look forward to welcoming CFP members on the trips in the future.

What do you feel most proud of?
Without getting too emotional 😛 I am proud of the regulars in the 6am class, I’ve been coaching them for quite a while now and to see the way they move in every workout, the PBs they hit, the way they can’t handle their drink and ability to make everything a competition. I am proud of their improvements and they will keep getting better every day!
First thing you think about when you get up?
Why do I take the 6am class everyday 🙂 And then what am I training so I can bring all the right gear
Last thing you think about before bed?
What am I training the next day and why I do I take the 6am class
Nicest thing a member has done for you?
I went down to a competition in Tipperary with an amazing bunch of people last year – It was their first competition and they all smashed it! We had a great day and everyone got through all the workouts. We had our own little corner in the gym which every person used so we were all there shouting together. I got a really nice gift and a bottle of hairspray – Perfect. Thanks to Lynn, Jayne, Anastasia, Sara, Kathleen, Ryan and Garry!
