Owners Kat and Helen Brownlee discovered CrossFit in 2012 after taking on various sports from a young age - anything from long distance running to team sports. If it involves moving competitively, the girls have tried it!
Kat in particular has excelled in all a wide range of sporting endeavours, earning caps for Scotland under-21s in field hockey, and a running 2'46 marathon in Chicago in 2010, making her the 2nd placed British female runner.
Helen too played field hockey, and ran 5 marathons between 2009 and 2011, before injury curtailed her running career. Taking up CrossFit in 2012 provided her with the ability to rehab her injuries and discover her true strengths.
In 2014 the girls relocated to the States to pursue CrossFit and work in several boxes in Phoenix, AZ. They spent this time coaching and educating themselves in Exercise Science. Whilst out in America, the girls gained qualifications with CrossFit, OPEX, Training Think Tank, and Nutrition Precision, to name but a few of the feathers to their bows.
In 2016 the girls returned to open CrossFit Allied in their home town of Stoke-on-Trent. Opening their own gym in their home town is a dream come true - and we'd love you to be a part of it!
CrossFit Allied is a place where anyone can come and get a great workout. We want you to leave feeling better than ever. Showing up can be the hardest part. Let us take care of the rest.
