I’m Glenn ”Jonesy” … the good looking one out of the 3 coaches at Hireps 😉
Hi Reps fitness started 10 years ago and I have been part of the group for nine years now.
I started as a client to lose weight and regain my health. Doctors warned me that if I didn’t lose weight I would be putting my health at further risk and I would be on medication for high blood pressure. This scared the crap out of me as I have had 2 open heart surgeries to replace a defective heart valve, and had also suffered a stroke.
It wasn’t long before myself and my wife were hooked on Hireps and joined for unlimited sessions.
Over the next nine months, I lost over 40kgs and became stronger and fitter than I was when playing competitive AFL at age 19.
It was then that Mark approached me and asked if I wanted to be a part of the Hireps team. 6 months later I coached my first outdoor session, and I’ve never looked back!
Now I train most days of the week consisting of weightlifting, CrossFit and conditioning.
Whilst training and coaching at Hi Reps I have not only reclaimed my fitness and become stronger, I have competed in events I never thought I could do before.
2 x Triathlons
3 x City 2 Surf
5 x Half Marathons
5 x Spartan
3 x Tough bloke challenge
Over 20 CrossFit events and even made it to represent NSW at the Masters CrossFit games in 2018.
