About Zen

Who Are We?

We want to create a world filled with powerful, resilient humans who feel good, have strong relationships, and love life.

As CrossFitters, we’ve seen how important community and belonging are to health and
wellbeing. We’re better when we work together.


We push each other, support each other.


Marcos Albornoz

Head Coach

"I Believe in Bone-Deep Goals.

I want to live in a world where people set goals based on how they want to feel and what they want to do with their bodies, not how they want to look. So much of fitness is a sales pitch of beauty and sexiness, with the sole strategy of making people feel “not enough” so they’ll be triggered to get to the gym and fix themselves.

We can help people see beyond the goals they think they want and help them get clear on what it is they truly want from fitness and life."


Karina Sharma


"I’m a CrossFit Level 1 Coach and a physiotherapist. I love being able to combine my passion for CrossFit with my knowledge of how the body works.

It’s my mission to support members to move safely and with purpose, while also empowering them to become the best versions of themselves. I’m grateful that I get to share each members’ journey of becoming both mentally and physically strong.

The confidence and skills built in the box transfer to all parts of life - one of the many things that makes me proud to be part of this Zen community!"


Sean Cure


"My goal is to help you help yourself and become a better athlete.

I have completed three years study at NZIS (Advanced Exercise Prescription) and NZCM (Massage Therapist). I have also completed my CrossFit Level 1 Certificate which has enabled me to help others develop skills to improve their performance. After completing my qualifications I did some personal training with Tina Ball (coach to David Liti) to enhance my ability and improve my technique in Olympic Lifting.

My favourite work out is Murph, because I love the massive amount of pain this put me through and the feeling of accomplishment when I complete it.

It’s not just another job for me, its a passion and I believe that all athletes can achieve that PB it’s the mind that stops you not your ability."
