Kate does all the hard work at Again Faster. Over the years, she has set up many of the policies and processes used at Again Faster. Along with that, she also looks after Human Resources and the staff. As you can imagine, she is into everything in the office and makes the place run like clockwork.
Kate is a Lvl 2 CrossFit Coach and has been for many years. She still coaches at her local box a few times a week. Here's an interesting thing about Kate. No that long ago, out of the blue, she lost the use of one of her arms due to some nerve complications. She had a major operation to repair the damage and used her expertise in CrossFit to rehabilitate herself.
She's back in business now. Overhead squatting heavier than ever and running a tight ship in the office and warehouse.
Barry is the Warehouse and logistics expert who is one of those old school dudes that has bent on new technology. Not only has Barry run Warehouses most of his life, he has also run his own businesses for many years.
Barry is an adrenaline junky who rides his motorbike to work very quickly every day, and races go-karts with his sons on the weekend.
Barry is one of those guys who is practical, has a lot of wisdom, can fix anything, can do anything and can make it happen. You wouldn't be with out him.
Chris is one of the most helpful people you will ever meet in your life. It's a good fit because he is the main customer service contact at Again Faster. His product knowledge is second to none and he knows our systems better than anyone. Chris is swamped with requests day in and day out but he churns through it like a champ and never lets anyone down.
Chris is a CrossFitter, of course, but is also a solo adventure hiker who has been to places where very few other human beings have been. To get to those spots he needs to push the envelope and take a few gambles. He's does some pretty hairy stuff on the weekends so we always breath a sigh of relief when he turns up on Monday.
