How long have you been training as a member of Reebok CrossFit 09?

Long enough to know I love it not long enough to look like I go.

How did you end up walking through our doors for the first time? Was there a pivotal event that led you to us?

My lovely Fiancée Said that we really need to make an effort & the regular gym wasn’t really doing it for us & CrossFit 09 is 300m from home.

Can you remember your first CrossFit experience? What was it like and how did you feel? Excited? Nervous?

Nervous as!!! Add slow, well rounded and well impressed with the 530 crew smashing it as we arrived (Damn happy that I didn’t follow my desire to just turn & gap it)

Is there a piece of training equipment you can't live without?

My new shoes, trying to lift weights in runners was killing my ankles

What are you doing when you aren't training with us?

Working way too much.
