Meet The Team
Nataliya AKA ‘Boris the Blade’
Originally from Ukraine, I started my fitness journey in my early 20s and it quickly became a big part of my life. My training took many twists and turns over the years, from being a cardio ‘gym-bunny’ to bodybuilding, but after I discovered CrossFit back in 2017, there was no turning back. I have been with Two Tails from when the doors first opened in January 2020. It instantly felt like home!
I am a qualified Personal Trainer and have been coaching group classes for the past two years, and now a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer. I also specialise in Nutrition and Flexibility.
I like to work hard and stay focused when in the gym, but I also keep my classes laid-back and fun. Don’t be surprised if I randomly break out in dance or start signing (some have said my singing voice is like a mix of Beyonce and Jesus…..honest).
I love seeing people conquer their fears, crush a WOD, do a WOD RX for the first time and hit a PB. It gives me a great joy to see them grow.
With the new sister Two Tails CrossFit box opening in Witham I get to be not only a coach but also a partner in this exciting new endeavour. I am extremely happy to be able to coach and work with truly amazing people and educate them on how to live a healthier and happier life through fitness.
Head Coach and Founder
I’ve been a CrossFitter for over 8 years and a CrossFit coach for 4 years, it was love at first sight. It was everything I wanted - working out and keeping fit was no longer a chore that I needed to do, it was something I wanted to do….all the time!
My previous career involved staring at spreadsheets and coaching sales teams by day and then training CrossFit each night. At work I would daydream about a CrossFit box of my own. Instead of coaching sales teams I wanted to coach people in something I genuinely cared passionately for, so in 2019 I began taking steps towards making that dream a reality.
In January 2020, the doors to Two Tails CrossFit were opened, it’s the best career choice I have ever made.
We have amazing members and it has been just so incredible to see, and play a small part, in helping so many of them become healthier and happier people. It will never not blow my mind to see the difference CrossFit makes to peoples wellbeing and how much our little Two Tails community has grown and become part of members daily lives. Two Tails is a place to have a great laugh (usually at my expense), meet new people and become a far healthier in the process and I’m glad to be a part of it all.
Find a job you love and you will never have to work a day again in your life…. I think I’ve found it!
