Ailish Murphy

Hello, I’m Ailish. I’m super excited to be part of Box’d Fit. I’m from Ireland originally but moved to London in 2015 after a stint in Australia! 


I’m a fitness addict and have dabbled in a number of sports over the years including swimming, dancing, yoga, horse riding and thai boxing. 


Once I discovered Crossfit however I was hooked and it has been in my life ever since! I decided to take my passion for anything health and fitness related up a gear in 2017 and I studied to become a PT. 


I love coaching and personal training and have coached and personal trained in some other London boxes. 


I love those long endurance WoDs but keen to give any WoD a go…at least once 🙂 


Phil Lewis

Hi, I’m Phil. Originally from West Wales (but you can’t really tell). I joined CrossFit Cardiff in 2012 after being introduced to it by a friend who recommended it to improve my fitness around the squash court. 

Soon I was enjoying the box more than the court and I’ve not looked back! 

I became a coach at Reebok Crossfit Cardiff shortly before moving to London and I’m incredibly excited to be part of the team at Boxd Fit.

I really enjoy a heavy deadlift or anything involving hang power cleans. I can’t, for the life of me, walk on my hands and I am 100% ok with that. 

Outside of the gym I like comics, computers and pretty much anything on the geekier side of life.
