About CrossFit All Out
Get to know us
CrossFit All Out is a strength and conditioning facility based in Newton Aycliffe, County Durham in the North East of England. It is owned and managed by husband and wife Terry and Vikki Anderson who have put their heart and souls into creating their dream CrossFit box, a genuine community of people who all have a passion for fitness. Having opened in January 2014, Team All Out is now a strong team of coaches and a growing success story.
CrossFit All Out Trainer and Founder
Terry is very experienced, highly qualified and has covered many different styles of training. He believes he has now found something that truly gets results – whether that be to lose body fat, improve body composition, improve fitness, strength or all of the above – CrossFit is the best all-round approach.
CrossFit All Out Business Manager
Vikki is Terry’s wife and he describes her as his rock. She has a degree in Business Management & Administration, a background in children’s social care admin management and works behind the scenes, keeping the cogs turning for CrossFit All Out. This includes all admin, finances, marketing, events, Health and Safety etc, as well as supporting Terry with his CrossFit training.
“We first met in 1998 when he was 18 and I was only 16, just starting my admin career. We have both worked so hard and supported each other to achieve everything we have. It was pretty huge for us to open the box as we had already built up our home, had our careers and by then had our 2 young boys, so to risk it all was pretty scary, but exciting too! We knew we were a strong team and so with the same vision, it has worked well so far.
Our team of coaches are fantastic and all of our members are very supportive. It’s exciting to see where we can take All Out in the future as it’s been a fantastic journey so far.”
CrossFit All Out Coach
Coming from a background in off road mountain biking, Chris would travel around the UK and Europe to ride some of the best trails on offer and enter amateur race meets. He was also a part of Newton Aycliffe RUFC, part of the team that won the Durham County Championship Plate.
As well as mountain biking and rugby, Chris used running and road cycling to supplement his training, as well as using the regular gym. “I signed up to All Out as soon as it opened and haven’t looked back since.” After around 18 months of being a member at the box, Tez asked Chris if he would be interested in helping out with coaching.
“Coaching isn’t anything that I’d done before, but was a challenge I thought I’d enjoy, so I signed up to complete my CF Level 1 Training certificate in Manchester and have been involved with the coaching side of All Out since early 2016.”
CrossFit Level 1 & Gymnastics Coach
Vicki has a background of athletics and at school competed in the 200m and 400m at the Counties, Inter Counties and English Schools Championships. "I was dedicated and put in a lot of time to athletics training at Shildon R&AC 4 times per week. I trained and competed from the age of 11 until I was 24 year old. The highlight was taking 3rd at the National Indoor Champs at Birmingham for 300m".
"Since I finished competing in running I have always missed that feeling you get from a great training session or competing and doing well, the sense of achievement and working hard. I feel like I was always meant to find CrossFit".
Vicki worked as a PT down South for 6 years and always wanted to join a CrossFit Box so when she moved back up North almost 7 years ago she jumped at the chance to join All Out.
"From the minute I did the fundamentals sessions over 5 years ago, I loved it right away and knew it would be good for me. I have now dedicated over 4 years of solid graft, given up my job and created opportunities for myself to start my own business to enable me to train more and get closer to my goal of making it to the CrossFit Games. I love coaching and being at the box with like minded people, everyone wanting to push and it's great to see members progress in movements and confidence from their fundamentals sessions."
CrossFit Level 1 & CrossFit Kids Coach
Allen was in the army for 6 years aged 17 to 23. After leaving the army Allen continued with training and competed in various strongman competitions across the UK. He has been coaching CrossFit since 2013 and is our biggest cheerleader for members achievements. He doesn't take life too seriously and embraces the fun at the box.
"I enjoy coaching at All Out as all the coaches have a real passion for coaching and delivering fun sessions. The members are so friendly, positive and upbeat. At every training session each member gives it their all whether that be the youngest or oldest members within the box."
CrossFit Level 1 Coach
Courtnie has participated in competitive sport from a young age. She started out training and competing in track and field, travelling up and down the country to represent her club and county in sprint and jumping events; her favourite events being the 200m sprint and long jump. From the age of 7 she has trained religiously, dedicating a great amount of her life to sport and tough training.
Courtnie first heard of All Out when an apprenticeship opportunity arose back in 2016. After applying for the job and being successful Courtnie had to learn everything about the sport of CrossFit just like any new beginner would. She began to attend classes to extend her own training knowledge and adopted the role as ‘assistant coach’, helping Head Coach Tez during CrossFit pre-school, kids and more recently, academy classes.
In October 2020 Courtnie completed her CF Level 1 Course in Manchester and has begun coaching adult classes as well as coaching her usual kids classes. “It took me a long time to get to grips with CrossFit, but it is the best thing that could have happened to me. I have grown tremendously as an individual and as an athlete and after 4 years here I now feel confident in starting my coaching role”. Courtnie also has a valuable admin role at All Out, working alongside Vikki to help keep the business running smoothly. "Helping improve the health and wellbeing of others is something I am truly passionate about and I am lucky to do something I love every single day. We have such a great team and community here at All Out.”
Zack is our youngest team member aged 16 and started in the All Out Academy when he was 11, just after starting comprehensive school. From the start he showed a quiet commitment and dedication, entering his first singles competition at the age of 12. When he was just 14 he paired with fellow Academy member Jake, also 14, to compete in a 16-18 year old category, managing to get to the finals. Still at the age of 14, he progressed up to the adult classes as he was doing so well and "outgrew" the Academy (with a lot of support from his Dad Dave (aka Cookie) who also has attended for over 5 years now).
Zack has younger siblings attending the CrossFit kids classes, so when the position of Assistant Kids Coach came up he jumped at the chance. His confidence is steadily growing as the box is already such a familiar place and a big part of his daily life. He's also currently at 6th form, studying a Btec level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport, along with A-Levels in Biology, Maths and Business Studies, all of which he is very much enjoying and will only compliment his role as an assistant coach at All Out.
