Coach Patrick, an Australian national, has been a resident of Abu Dhabi, UAE for over 7 years. Patrick has been active in health, fitness and sport since the age of 6, when his dad used to ride around the cricket oval on a used pink bike in his boxer shorts embarrassingly supporting him.
Patrick’s sporting achievements include representative honours in cricket, water polo and rugby union, going on to represent Queensland Country and then the UAE National Rugby Union side in both the 7’s and 15-a-side formats. After arriving in the UAE, Patrick and Billy started to train in the CrossFit Methodology – years ahead of it arriving in the UAE – to initially help with rugby performance. After understanding how far advanced the CrossFit methodology is over all other fitness regimes, the pursuit of Vogue Fitness began. Despite being distinctly average at CrossFit, Coach Patrick has now dominated Coach Billy in the CrossFit Open in both 2016 and 2017.
