0-3 Ring muscle ups in 4 weeks

I have always struggled the most with gymnastics in my CrossFit training and this year I promised myself to focus on fixing that.  


Simon really has a unique coaches eye. Sometimes I know something is wrong, but I'm not sure how to fix it, but Simon is able to explain to me instantly and help me understand.


Getting a ring muscle up was awesome, stringing them now together is a dream come true.

3-8 strict pull ups in 1 month 

This year I realised if I want to make proper improvement and become better at my biggest weakness, I need to commit to it.


So I signed up to Si’s gymnastics programme and I'm a “SYN gymnastics girl” now. The changes are already coming which I can barely believe. (bar MU becoming consistent, already hit a PB on my strict pull ups and my kipping HSPU, getting much closer to a strict HSPU too! And generally I became more body aware).

A good coach is someone who pushes you, supports you and listens to you. It’s someone who sees your potential and knows how to get the best performance out of you while making sure you’re enjoying your training every step of the way. That’s Simon.

But, he's not just a good coach, he actually cares about all of us. He takes the time to get to know us all, and it makes us want to do the same! It's what makes this group so great.

First Bar Muscle up in under 2 weeks

0-10 toes to bar in 3 months

I came across this program while browsing instagram one day and I am so happy that I did!


I had been working on achieving a bar muscle up for quite a while and with Simon’s help I was able to get not just one, but many within a few weeks. His drills are unique and creative and his feedback is very precise. He is incredibly responsive and so enthusiastic about everyone’s success. The rest of the group is so supportive! I’m really looking forward to what comes next, new skills and improving on some of the old ones too.

I asked Simon for coaching just over a year ago and what I received far surpassed my expectations. 

When I first began training with him, my gymnastics were the weakest aspect of my training and I could barely complete one strict pull-up, let alone toes to bar or chest to bar pull-ups. With Simon's coaching, I am now able to perform a max out set of 8 strict pull-ups and can comfortably link sets of 10 toes to bar and chest to bar pull-ups!  His attention to detail and extensive knowledge of CrossFit and coaching is second to none.

5-8 Ring Muscle ups in 3 weeks

I love the exercises in SYN Gymnastics! I have tried many programmes in the past but this one is the best I've ever used.

In one week Simon's programme highlighted weaknesses I never knew I had, and I considered myself to be fairly advanced. I also love the way he coaches. He shows me how I can improve every week and I always look forward to seeing his feedback.
