Regan has seven years of experience as a CrossFit Coach and over 11 years in the health and fitness industry. He is also a current Australian Weightlifting Federation team coach and holds a degree in exercise science.
Has been CrossFitting for seven years and has coached three athletes to national records, two athletes to World Championships and Coached on the Australian Weightlifting team in 2017. He’s passionate about changing people’s lives through CrossFit. “I love seeing the transformation people experience—specifically, the confidence and self-belief they gain from getting fitter, losing weight and getting stronger,” he says. “I love witnessing the joy they have when they improve, nail a new skill or movement and discover their true, inner strength.”
Regan moved to Brisbane in 2012 to study at University. While looking for a part time job, he noticed that a gym across the road from his house was advertising a job for a fitness trainer. “I already had a background in coaching and training, so I applied. I ended up getting the job, and it just happened to be a gym that was converting from regular group training into a CrossFit affiliate.” What started as a part- time job to pay the bills while studying, became an absolute passion and he hasn’t looked back since.

Ben is a talented Young athlete having already competed in 3 Weightlifting World Championships. He also has two top 20 placings in the CrossFit open worldwide in 2015 & 2016.
Specializes in weightlifting and gymnastics coaching, and is passionate about helping people achieve every one of their fitness goals. “I love sitting down after a day of coaching and thinking about all the people who have taken another step closer to ticking off their next goal,” he says. “That feeling of accomplishment is something I chase each day.” He loves the fact that he gets the opportunity to share his knowledge every day and can have the time of his life while doing it. “Our members come in motivated and ready to give 100%, and to top it all off, they are great people to be around, in and out of the gym.”
Ben grew up on the Gold Coast, so it’s only natural he spent 8 years in Surf Life Saving. He also played rugby league for five years, and in 2015 and 2016 was the 20th Fittest in the World in the CrossFit Open within the 14- to 15-year-old Teenage Division. He was also second fittest in Australia for both of these years. Ben has competed at Three Weightlifting World Championships — and maybe that’s why Head Coach Regan offered him a coaching role, seeing Ben’s potential as a coach and motivator.
