Nathalie Bruynooghe – CrossFit Instructor

Nathalie Bruynooghe

Nathalie started Judo at the age of 5. She already learned to live a disciplined and healthy lifestyle at a young age. Being part of the Belgian Olympic Judo team she competed around the world for a decade. Being at school, the rest of her days were filled with strength and conditioning, judo and nutrition. But after she got several knee and shoulder surgeries though, she decided to say the tatami goodbye.

Using the knowledge she gained during her Judo career she trained herself until she discovered Crossfit. What started as a hobby quickly became a passion. She studied several personal trainer and nutrition courses and got her Level 1 certificate. She wants to pass on her passion and knowledge about living a healthy lifestyle, becoming stronger and fitter.

She started training at Unit-27 in 2016, she soon got the nickname Pocket Rocket. The urban dictionary describes it as Petite enough to fit in your pocket, able to make you go off like a rocket.
Being a small girl, she is the perfect prove that size doesn’t matter. If you have a goal, just work hard for it. And she has a big appetite to help others reaching their goals and pushing their limits, every single training, every single day.
