He is a qualified British Weightlifting Level 2 Instructor, Crossfit Gymnastics, and Crossfit Level 1 Trainer.

Sam Smith Big Red Training



Big Red Training was born out of Crossfit Murrayfield, Edinburgh offering 1to1 coaching for recreational and competitive athletes within the gym and other disciplines. Gradually this initiative grew into online programming/coaching and has produced wonderful results for athletes spanning 3 continents through detailed processes and daily feedback. We believe that mastery is led by steady education and practise, spotlighting quality and efficiency. The aim is to get members deconstructing and understanding their own movement within fitness endeavours and day to day life. Big Red looks to support clients through the technical, psychological, and physical challenges that are posed through functional fitness, weightlifting, bodybuilding, and calisthenics. There are few things more exciting than discovering what your body is capable of, and Big Red Training is your foundation for doing so.
