TCL Podcast Ep. 44- James Newbury & Kayla Banfield – Success Mode In Fitness & Business

This week we’re joined by CrossFit Games competitor James Newbury and CrossFit Games Field Reporter Kayla Banfield. These two are hard working in all aspects of life. They have opened multiple gyms as well as a recovery centre in Adelaide, Australia and have really taken their CrossFit Gym into a multi-fitness avenue for all walks of life.


Kayla coming from a life in TV was thrown into the deep end from the start creating her own scripts and editing her own productions for Totally Wild. Although it was glamorous she states it didn’t come without hard work.


She stepped into the CrossFit Media realm when she was put into an MC role at The CrossFit Pacific Regionals, which she found super challenging due to hating being in front of the large crowds. She dug deeper and threw her hand up to work behind the scenes as a field reporter and nailed it. One year later CrossFit HQ contacted her to do it all again, and the rest is history.


James has been a competitive athlete his whole life and has competed the past 5 years at the CrossFit Regionals. This year his hard work paid off when he debuted his rookie year at the CrossFit Games. This endeavor has paid off so well that he’s now been invited to compete on the Pacific team at the CrossFit Invitational.


Both Kayla and James have incredible work ethic and unreal business minds. They complement each other so well in business as they are quite opposite and this helps with their ongoing success.


We talk business, fitness, recovery, visualisations as well as the time James lit the gym on fire. Tune in as they both deliver a heap of insights.
