Biography

Ezra has a deep passion for health and fitness and he has dedicated his whole life to this pursuit. Having captained both the under-16 and under-18 Victorian State AFL teams, he was drafted to Richmond in 1999 and played professional football at the highest level for 4 years.

He transitioned into the fitness industry starting his own Personal Training business, which he successfully ran for 10 years in Melbourne, Sydney and Queensland. During this time, he continued to train and explore different sports, disciplines and training methods including athletics, running, football, soccer, basketball, body building and swimming, until he found CrossFit.
