Level 3 Personal Trainer, Level 2 Gym Instructor, Crossfit Level 1
Mark Fraser has been strength training since competing in national karate championships as a teenager about 21 years ago.
Due to an obsession with quality movement and a love of the technical elements of training, he took a level 2 gym instructor certificate and also the BAWLA leaders course back in 2002 but continued working in care until 2007.
Whilst taking the diploma in adult nursing he came across crossfit and was instantly hooked. After studying everything online he travelled to crossfit London (the only box in the country at that time) and did the I course, that wasn't enough so he ended up travelling to Belgium for the level one cert, in the process becoming the first certified crossfit trainer in Kent and started 'The Sunday Sinbin' crossfit class which ran weekly for around a year.
After finishing nurse training Mark was working in the NHS, eventually as an ophthalmic practitioner, and crossfit was put on hold until Mark was thrilled to be able to help his friend of many years, Ben Stroud, establish White Cliffs Crossfit where he has been coaching 4+days a week ever since.
Mark has an absolute passion for getting the best possible movement from all athletes, a dubious sense of humour and a magnificent beard.
