Trever Love’s incredible ability to tumble led him to the film industry in 2004, becoming a stunt actor, choreographer and stunt director of various films like Joker Game, Star Trek, Dead Mine, Bring it On, and various TV shows on HBO Asia and Infinite Studios.
“CrossFit helps me handle the day to day rigors of live action. It has kept me healthy and safe from injury” says Coach Trever.
Coaching was not on Trever’s mind when he took up his Level 1 CrossFit Certification. Rather, he felt that movement fundamentals would be useful in his Stunt Workshops. Thereupon he realized he enjoyed coaching others.
“I love those aha! moments. Seeing in practice what I’ve just taught them coupled with the excitement and gratification over what they've just accomplished is great” he said.
After discovering his passion for coaching, Trever went on to complete his CrossFit Level 2 Certification in 2014 and CrossFit Weightlifting Certification in 2015. He then left the stunt industry to work full time in the fitness industry.
Trever started out coaching in CrossFit Hub in Singapore where he also taught gymnastics and strength conditioning. He participated in various competitions like the Sin City Invitational 2014 where his team won 1st place. His CrossFit Hub team also qualified in CrossFit Asia Regionals in 2013 and 2014.
“I truly believe my calling from God is to help others and right now I am able to do this through CrossFit” he says. “It's as fun for me as it is for them when they hit PR's or new milestones or unlock new skills. “
Love brought Coach Trever in the Philippines, marrying his sweetheart, spinning coach Rachelle Que.
“The facility, the community, the energy, and the opportunity all brought me to Primal Ape CrossFit, assuming the role of head coach. It's a young box but has the potential to be exceptional.”
Asked for a message for his Nest at Primal Ape CrossFit, Trever says:
“Start working out! Sedentariness is a killer. Get off your butts and live a little. It's my job to get you fit and keep you safe”
