What is your favourite 'treat'?
Oh my this is hard… I have the sweetest tooth ever so almost anything sweet will do but if I had to choose just one, I would pick Swiss chocolate!
How long have you been a member at Reebok CrossFit 09?
It’s going to be 5 months next week:)
How did you end up walking through our doors for the first time? Was there a pivotal event that lead you to us?
I was hitting a plateau at the gym and starting to lose my motivation so during the Christmas holidays I started looking into CrossFit. I’m lucky that my flatmate knows Amber from IA who recommended I try Reebok CrossFit 09!
Can you remember your first experience with us? What was it like and how did you feel? Excited? Nervous?
I think I went through every emotion state. First I was thrilled when Krista replied to my email on the same day and we managed to book my first session for the following day. And then as I was walking into the box I was so nervous, telling myself “what did you put yourself into again?”. I honestly didn’t know what to expect. But my best memory and what got me totally hooked was my first class. The last exercise during the metcon was a 200m run and on the way back from the gate someone I didn’t even know yelled my name and cheered me up I went home that day with the biggest smile on my face!
Is there a piece of training equipment you can't live without?
Not that I can think of. At the moment, I’m practising my handstand so there’s no need for any equipment!
What are you doing when you aren't training with us?
I’m a web developer
What has been one of the biggest things in your life that has changed since starting CrossFit?
My strength! Every time I take my nephew (who's 16 months old) in my arms, he seems lighter
Are you a barbell or kettle bell lover?
And what is your all time FAVOURITE movement?
If you were told you had to do only one movement for 7mins straight.. for max reps.. what would you NOT like to see?
Is there a Reebok CrossFit 09 member who inspires you?
Everyone inspires me! Especially seeing girls lift heavy weights
