How were you introduced to CrossFit and Reebok CF09?
I was introduced to CrossFit by a new friend that had been doing it for a couple years. The more I researched it the more I was attracted to what it had to offer. I'd had enough of rugby I needed something else physical to challenge me. Crossfit was it. So I set my goal of what I wanted to achieve and started working towards it. The reason I found my way to Reebok CF09 was because when I enquired about the best box to train. I was told CFNZ and Reebok CF09 were the best, so thats where I went.
What do you like most about being a member at Reebok CF09?
That its close to where I live and work haha. Although its true, its actually the awesome people that throw down morning and night at 09. Also we have some pretty sick equipment.
Greatest Crossfit accomplishment to date?
By far my greatest crossfit accomplishment came when I completed the Level 1 Cert in November 2013. It was when my philosophy/focus on crossfit changed from the single minded pursuit of PR's, to becoming the best version of myself as a crossfitter. That said winning the de-shirting award in my first 6 months of crossfit was also a special achievement hahaha
What do you think about our coaches?
The coaches at RCF09 and CFNZ are awesome. As RCF09 is the only CrossFit gym I've ever been a member of, I've only come to realise how awesome they actually are by talking to CrossFitters who have trained elsewhere. Lucky me huh!!
What kind of music / favourite song you like listening to during a WOD?
I'm a fan of all sorts, rap, rock, RnB, pop (haha yes I said it). But typical WOD songs include Skrillex bangarang, Galvanise Chemical Brothers, Sail Awolnation to name a few.
Do you have any pre-WOD rituals? If so, what are they?
Dont really have any pre-WOD rituals, but if it involves something really heavy then I get a little bit angry haha
What is your favourite CrossFit exercise?
Interesting fact about yourself that most people may not know?
I'm the favourite child out of 13 children haha. Ok my 7 brothers and 5 sisters might disagree with that haha.
