Coaching Team

Genice Paullay-Beazley      Head Coach

Genice is  a born and bred New Yorker who lived on 4 continents before settling in Aotearoa. She spent over 26 years body-building, running and teaching aerobics before trying CrossFit in 2010 and has never trained in a mirror since. Already a personal trainer, she saw the changes in her clients who, like herself, were stuck in a monotonous routine.  While many find themselves slowing down as they age, she is getting younger while raising a family of CrossFitters and breaking national records in Olympic Weightlifting.

Kapua Togo     Coach  CrossFit Kids/Teens Head Coach Program Director

I was introduced to CrossFit in February 2011, and after my first WOD consisting of a 20min AMRAP of push ups, squats and sit ups I was instantly hooked and have never looked back!  I love this sport with a passion and it’s this passion that has driven me to develop my individual skill and transfer this knowledge in a teaching environment.  I have been actively involved in sport since childhood and represented the  Bay  of  Plenty  in netball at College level. I now follow my daughters sporting career and provide support to her and others at a coaching level also.

 Cj Withey Asst Coach

Film maker by day, Crossfit Cultist by night and otherwise nerdy by all accounts. Love Overhead squat days and flail miserably at Toes to bars. I’ve had a unique opportunity to train at various places around the world in my travels for work and have learnt some amazing things from various coaches. I have a passion for teaching and helping those both new and old to the world of Crossfit in achieving goals or just getting that new personal best in a lift. Although still new to Crossfit Waitakere, I am proud and honoured to be a part of the team here.

Briar Hocking Asst Coach

I was introduced to the world of CrossFit in April 2013. I fell in love almost instantly!! Since then, I have been addicted to the ever-changing workouts and challenges thrown my way. The mental and physical challenge that CrossFit demands is like no other training regime I had tried before.  After living above the gym for almost a year as just a member, I realised that I was curious about the world of coaching. I completed by Level 1, and am now a part time coach at the box. I love watching people make transitions, and strive to become better at skills and movements, whilst smashing their goals along the way!
