The CrossFit Shropshire Team

Meet the Team that is Dedicated to Your Success

our founder


Gray has been a Shropshire lad all his life. He moved away briefly to complete his degree but returned home to become a wholetime firefighter. He opened CrossFit Shropshire in 2007 and has been coaching and helping people to live better through fitness since then.

He first found CrossFit googling fitness programmemes as a competitive ultra runner he though it looked easy. He was humbled how even though he could run 50 miles this workout took most people 20 minutes he did it in double the time.

Gray was hooked and soon got his Level one certification in the USA and then went on to work as a Subject Matter Expert for CrossFit Endurance, helping teach running as a skill for their CrossFit Seminars.

Gray’s passion is CrossFit Shropshire, which is a place where we help make people fit and happy.
