ABOUT martin

Hi, I’m Martin Burns. Most of you will only know me as Steve’s dad! So this is my chance to give you a little more background about me. I’m actually a Southerner, my hometown being Plymouth. However, we’ve lived in Grimsby for 30 years now, so I consider myself an adopted Grimbarian.

I’m still in my 50’s….but only for another 3 months, so I’m the elder statesman of the team!I’ve only been in the fitness industry for six years, having spent the first 35 years of my working life in sales.But it eventually affected my mental well-being, so I took a leap of faith, passed the gym instructor course, gained my PT qualification and moved into the only other thing that I was good at.We started with the Grimsby and Cleethorpes Biggest Losers group in 2017, which is still going strong and helping members not just with their physical health, but also with their mental well-being.

Steve naturally got me into CrossFit, which I love! It’s so diverse, it never gets stale, we’re always chasing the clock or our own backsides and it’s accessible to everyone, no matter the ability or age of participants, which I proved by taking part in the CrossFit Open in 2021, 22 and 23.My best finish was in 2022….2nd in the UK in my age group for scaled (7th in Europe and 17th Worldwide).
