Courtney Durr

CrossFit Coach

I CrossFit because

It’s always different, it challenges me mentally and physically, and the people around me are RAD.

Born and raised

Born in Waipukurau, Hawkes Bay, and raised in Wellington 🙂

Certifications & experience

Level 1 CrossFit, Diploma in Exercise Prescription & Level 1 Kettlebell Certificate

Coaching philosophy

Intention-fuelled movement. Not everybody works out for the same reason. For some, it’s because they want to compete at a high level, for some it’s to get in better shape, for some it’s the socializing and time for themselves, and for others it’s because they just love pain… I mean CrossFit.

When you know your intentions behind why you work out (and these can change over time), it makes it easier to stay in your own lane and not compare your journey to somebody elses. It makes the process a whole lot more enjoyable in my opinion.

What I do when I’m not CrossFitting

I’m running my business: Worthwild, going on adventures, socializing, eating, drinking coffee, and reading.

CrossFit Hero

Khan Porter!! He’s awesome at CrossFit, leads a balanced life, and promotes mental health – especially for men. So great.

Favorite quote

I have sooooo many fave quotes but one of them probably would be from Brené Brown, “Stop walking through the world looking for confirmation that you don’t belong. You will always find it because you’ve made that your mission. Stop scouring people’s faces for evidence that you’re not enough. You will always find it because you’ve made that your goal.

True belonging and self-worth are not goods; we don’t negotiate their value with the world. The truth about who we are lives in our hearts. Our call to courage is to protect our wild heart against constant evaluation, especially our own. No one belongs here more than you.”

What would you say to someone thinking about trying /starting Crossfit?

If there’s a chance you might love it, isn’t it worth figuring out?

I would love you to be part of the TOA CrossFit family
