Dan Rousell


As a former semi-professional footballer turned CrossFitter, I have spent years teaching children and adults football and other sports. I had always though of myself as fit until I tried CrossFit where I quickly found out I needed a whole different level of fitness which I loved.

I have had the pleasure of being a member at NewWave for three years prior to becoming a coach. When the opportunity came up to participate in the internship programme, it was something I couldn’t pass up. I facilitate mental health courses and awareness for adult and I love sharing information on the topic.  I love how CrossFit and the community around the Box can benefit everyone’s wellbeing and positive mental health. To be able to coach people and give then a great hour of their day gives me a great sense of pride in what we do.
