Jas has a wealth of knowledge that he will share with you in your session – Always going that extra mile to ensure that you are achieving everything that you can. His caring nature is always evident – don’t be scared of this big cuddly bear!

I started CrossFit in 2006 after 20 years exploring, competing and coaching a variety of sports and training methods.

I quickly recognized CrossFit as a holistic method of gaining complete general and sports specific fitness.

I founded CrossFit Perth in 2008 while serving over 18 years in the Australian Army and implemented CrossFit into the Australian Defence Force.

I also conducted development training with the West Coast Eagles, Western Force, WAFL teams as well as corporate team development.

I am often asked if CrossFit is good having had injuries and so forth, I can honestly say after having had due to my military service 6 ankle operations, 2 knee operations and upper back issues that CrossFit done progressively has helped me get my body back together.

I now view my bad experience with military related injury’s as an asset to our coaching team in dealing with injury management and prevention.

Take advantage of my experience, millions of dollars and 18 years the Army spent training me.

BRAVO COACHES

Miss REBECCA JOHNSTON

I have learnt to fight; my mental toughness…and weakness, to fuel myself as an athlete, to be patient with myself, to learn my limit and dreaming of the next goal, honouring ‘the zone” in myself, the CrossFit community, trying new things, sweating, getting bruises and tearing up my hands, unleashing my competitive side in WOD’s and competitions, the discipline of CrossFit, coaching classes and fundamentals…

RJ is cool calm and composed, with her quick wit and thick accent she brings the class to life.

I have been active for the most part of my life and have participated in a wide variety of sports and recreational activities including basketball, hockey, athletics and water sports.
I have been an avid gym goer for almost 6 years and have trained under a number of different components – from group fitness classes to outdoor boot camps.

Why I LOVE CrossFit:

JAKE RUSSELL

In 2010 I began my Crossfit journey at the age of 14 as an overweight teen. I have never looked back, it has developed me physically and more importantly mentally from the amazing environment derived from community spirit and smart programming. For the last year I have taken a step back in my own training at Crossfit Perth whilst focusing on studying a Bachelor of Exercise Sport Science at Edith Cowan University and also playing Football (AFL). The knowledge gained through studying at ECU and the countless hours interning under the extremely qualified Jas Pelham Head coach has allowed me to help many clients reach their goals. My aim as a coach is to ensure each clients potential is reached in a safe and effective manner.

RACHEL CAIRNEY

Rachel combines her passion for teaching and friendly nature and applies this in her coaching for CrossFit – You will certainly learn a few things from her

Fitness Background- I have participated in a wide variety of sports including touch rugby, AFL for West Perth Womens league, Basketball, Indoor Cricket and Athletics but my main sport that I have played for 12 years is netball.

I have played for West Perth Falcons netball league and travelled to Hawaii to compete in the ACC carnival.

How I found CrossFit- I found CrossFit through researching on the internet for new personal training/fitness classes. I saw the photos on the website, which were a bit daunting at the time, yet looked like an inspiring challenge. I dragged my fiancé there for moral support as he was a bit tentative about starting. Now after 4 years we both love it and have an ongoing ‘friendly’ competition when working out.
