Our Coaches


Coach Riaan has been doing CrossFit for just over three years now. He has his CrossFit level 1 trainer certificate, CrossFit Gymnastics trainer certificate, a certificate in sport psychology and a certificate in Sports Management to his name.

He was actively involved in the establishment of CrossFit Pretoria for the first two years of his CrossFit career, after which he was assistant coach to Anneke de Beer for four months at CrossFit Wonderboom before taking up the head coaching position at CrossFit RedShack.

Apart from helping to train many of the top coaches in Pretoria he has also coached athletes to participation at Regionals. His favourite athletes are Mikko Salo and the Valley CrossFit girls. He lives for CrossFit and can not see himself do anything else ever again, especially not at another box than CrossFit RedShack which he sees as his second home.
