John is our specialist Olympic Weightlifting coach who practices what he teaches. After early coaching under Lewis Chua, Singapore’s Olympic Weightlifting record holder in the 105+ weight category, John went on to compete in several CrossFit and Weightlifting competitions. Notable achievements include representing Singapore in the inaugural Asia Championships in 2015, the 2015 Commonwealth Championships, and the 2014 World University Weightlifting Championships. In the process he  set a new national record in the under-85kg weight category.

As a coach, John has conducted weightlifting seminars across CrossFit boxes in Breda and Maastricht in the Netherlands, and held the position of head coach at CrossFit Statera from 2014 to 2015. At the 2016 CrossFit Pacific regionals, John also served as the coach of team CrossFit Tanjong Pagar.
