I am one of the trainers and co-owner of Crossfit Battlefield. I train and compete in Olympic weightlifting. My journey here has been full of different athletic endeavors, which eventually led me to the sport of weightlifting and crossfit. I love all aspects of fitness, which drew me to crossfit. My favourite part about owning and working at a gym is helping others reach and surpass their goals. Nothing pleases me more than when a member accomplishes something they never thought was possible. Whether it is a strength goal, weight loss goal, a movement goal or just looking and feeling better. I love showing our members the true capabilities of their bodies in every aspect.
Hello everyone, my name is Kody Taylor and I am one of the coaches and co-owners here at CrossFit Battlefield. I would consider myself a fitness enthusiast or fanatic as I love what I do and wouldn’t want to do anything else. In my life I’ve used fitness to become a better athlete and healthier version of myself. My first experience in Crossfit was for strength and conditioning for Rugby. Now I train and compete at the national level for Olympic weightlifting. In my fitness career I have accomplished a lot and had the opportunity to work some amazing jobs with great coaches and trainers. I’ve worked as a personal trainer, team trainer, strength and conditioning coach, CrossFit coach and even had the opportunity to work with amateur and professional athletes preparing them for their given sport. I’ve taken everything I’ve learned over the years to grow as a trainer and become a better CrossFit coach.
Hi everyone and welcome to Battlefield Crossfit Strength and Performence. I spent 32 years as a police officer with the Hamilton Police Service, a job that required me to make sure I was fit and healthy. That is what led me to Crossfit. I think it's one of the best, if not the best, fitness regimes. It will prepare you for anything life may throw your way! I competed in the open games masters division this year finishing in the top 25 in Canada and my goal is to improve on that placing next year. I am also competing in Powerlfting; bench press, deadlift, and squat. My goal is 1000lbs, not quite there yet, long way to go! I have trained a lot of people over the years; from adults to teens, individuals and teams, and it's a great feeling when you help someone accomplish something they never thought possible, whether it's a push-up, pull-up, or lifting a weight they only dreamed of! If I can help any of you with your fitness goals please let me know! Looking forward to seeing you at Battlefield, and hey is there any better music to workout to that Classic Rock!!!
Regardless of athletic ability or age, I believe that CrossFit leads people to becoming the happiest and healthiest version of themselves. Coaching Crossfit enables me to help people realize they are capable of much more than they thought possible, which is a mutually amazing process for both athlete and coach.
