Since childhood, Phil has always played sports and loved to compete. He tried his hand at everything – soccer, cricket, rugby union and league – before finding CrossFit at the age of 21. He was instantly hooked and over the past two years has developed a lifestyle and career based around the sport of fitness. He currently works at InnerFight
, in Dubai.
As an athlete, he has competed in the CrossFit Open for the past three years. His first year, he finished 198th in Europe and went on to represent his gym as part of their regional-level team. The second year, he moved up to fourteenth place in Europe and competed as an individual for the first time.
Phil's biggest achievement came in 2014 when he earned second place in Asia and narrowly missed out on a spot to the CrossFit Games. This year he will be competing in the Meridian Region and hopes to make it to the big stage in Los Angeles.
