Christina Grima

From a young age Christina was heavily involved in anything sport related. As she got older, basketball took priority sparking a semi-professional career in Italy. She went on to attain a Bachelor’s degree in Nutrition, Health & Lifestyles and soon after came back to Malta to start her Career in Personal Training & Nutrition. She originally used CrossFit to aid her basketball training, but quickly became fascinated with its methods. In 2014, she took her CrossFit Level 1 and opened her very own Functional Training Facility, The Box in 2015 and recently opened her new box, Tripod.

As a coach and a person, Christina fully believes in fitness, she enjoys passing on knowledge and learning as much as possible about anything Health and Fitness related. Her passion lies in helping people realise their full potential.

I’m Amy 😊, a Chemistry teacher by day, and CrossFit coach by night. I have been doing CrossFit for 10 years now and coaching for 6 years. 

Originally, I used to run long distance and somehow found my way into OCR. An injury pushed me to seek another sport and I came across CrossFit – walked into my first class and haven’t looked back since. I love Olympic lifting, specifically the snatch, as well as any upside-down gymnastics, and my all-time favourite workout is DT. I love all animals, rubbish pop music and trash TV shows in my downtime, as well as going for long hikes with my dog, Nina.

I have been coaching CrossFit since 2021. I discovered CrossFit in 2018 and immediately fell in love with its methodology. Having a Bachelors Degree in Physical Education I get to use what I studied everyday, both in CrossFit coaching, Sports lecturing, as well as for Personal Training. After three years of training and competing in CrossFit, I decided to add to my teaching role and obtain my CrossFit Level 1 certificate. Helping others improve their own personal fitness and allowing members a better quality of life is the reason why I love coaching. My favourite movements are mostly gymnastics based as well as weightlifting.

I have a deep passion for fitness. I rediscovered this passion in 2016 when I gave birth to my second child and began attending fitness classes that allowed me to bring my son along. This was a great way for me to stay active and healthy while also being able to prioritize my responsibilities as a parent. The convenience of being able to incorporate fitness into my busy life as a parent was especially motivating for me. I continued on my fitness journey by taking up obstacle course training and participating in OCR races locally and abroad. However, during the COVID-19 pandemic, I discovered CrossFit and have been an active member of Tripod Fitness ever since. My dedication to staying active and fit has led me to try a variety of different fitness activities and challenges, and I have found a home in the CrossFit community at Tripod Fitness.As a parent of two children, I understand the importance of setting a good example and instilling healthy habits in the next generation. In 2021, I attended a CrossFit Kids Level 1 Certification in order to share the benefits of CrossFit that I have experienced in my own life, particularly with children. I am passionate about helping others, especially kids, lead healthy and active lives through the power of CrossFit whilst creating a positive and supportive environment for kids to learn and grow in their fitness journey.As a CrossFit kids coach, I am dedicated to creating a positive and supportive environment for kids to learn and grow in their fitness journey. I am constantly seeking out new ways to make workouts fun and engaging for kids, while still challenging them to push themselves and improve. I am passionate about helping others, especially kids, lead healthy and active lives through the power of CrossFit.

Her studies consisted in nutrition and metabolism, cardiovascular and respiratory physiology, psychology in sports and neuromuscular adaptation to training. Romi is currently in her third year in studying for a PhD in Sports Nutrition at the University of Chester. In 2017 she attended a workshop in Austria, about nutrition for fat loss and hypertrophy. She has given lectures at the University of Malta on sports nutrition, is currently a supervisor and examiner for students following their Bachelor’s degree in Physical Education and Sports and had successful results in helping athletes lose weight and improve their performance.

Her aim was always to show people that nothing is impossible to achieve if you just believe. Fat loss should always be gradually, to preserve muscle, feel energetic and boost your life. The word ‘diet’ does not exist in her vocabulary, but instead she uses the word ‘plan’, a plan to help you change your lifestyle and eat healthy without taking away anything that keeps you from enjoying your life.

Hello everyone! I am a nurse by profession and have been working as a product specialist in medical devices for the past 3 years. I have always been passionate about sports since I was a kid. At the age of 13, I started Volleyball and spent 17 years playing and competing with the national team. I also trained a bit of OCR for a brief period.
In June 2020, I started a nutrition and fitness challenge with Pam and Christina. Tripod had just opened at that time, I had decided to start CrossFit and I never looked back 😊. I love the challenges it brought along and that there is always something to learn. My favorite movements are the HSPUs, power cleans and bar muscle ups.  I have done the CrossFit Level 1 and CrossFit gymnastics course last summer and started coaching last January. I am always willing to learn more about CrossFit and fitness in general. I love the community and it makes me so happy to help other people improve by encouraging them, and making sure that they reach their goals.
