Founder and inspiration behind CBBC
Krix has been living, training and working in Phuket for 13 years. He spend he first few years training and fighting Muay Thai at a professional level and was undefeated for a long time. Having built him self a reputation as the Darth Vader of personal trainers. (interpret that as you may?!) But locally in Phuket he is lovingly referred to simply as “coach”.
Having set up a Thai boxing gym in the UK he never quite made it back there as planned and fortunately for Phuket has stuck around proving himself not only in the ring but thru the test of time.
It is Krix’s calm resolve to see things thru and his genuine love of Phuket, the Island he calls home, that leads the Clean the Beach Boot Camps. Krix’s magnetic personality, years of PT training and drive to see people lead a better life, make for a very entertaining time on the beach!

Keeping these students calm, safe, entertained and studious is not a feat to be under estimated, with his cool cat persona which makes us wonder occasionally how he looks after himself let alone so many others, Colin not only smiles his way thru but can often been seen dancing too!
Helping take CBBC to the next level, Colin now makes it part of the Social activities for all international PSU students, helping educate the student on how to be environmentally conscientious during their stay. As a result of this attention the number of Thai students are also increasing week on week.
