Today we're talking to Emily Clark!  She's been with us for about 7 months now, referred by friends (Rob and Fern), which is so common, and something we love to see.  Good people tend to refer other good people to us, which makes our job so much easier, and Emily is definitely good people! :)

Baking - absolutely anything baked, I can’t resist it!

How long have you been a member at Reebok CrossFit 09?

Running to and from work each day I saw the sign, and at the time I was flatting with Rob and Fern so joining wasn’t too scary!

So nervous, but excited. New to Auckland I just want to meet new people, and being halfway through marathon training I was missing lifting!

Barbell - them deadlifts. I just love them.

Shopping, or thinking about shopping.

My confidence. In and outside of the gym.

:) Barbell

And what is you all time FAVOURITE movement?
That deadlift! But getting my first pull up was pretty freaking cool too!

If you were told you had to do only one movement for 7mins straight.. for max reps.. what would you NOT like to see?
Its a tie - Rowing or Wall Balls.

Krista! How you function with so much positive energy pre coffee is beyond me, but its so amazing and so motivating!
