Coach and resident Kettlebell Connoisseur at CrossFit Victoria
Where did it all start?
Never really exercised before, and was never into sports. In fact, years ago I was pretty unfit and out of shape, so I joined a local gym to “get fit”. This worked initially but then I stumbled upon CrossFit through fitness magazines and started doing CrossFit.com WODs on my own at the local gym. This was when things really took off!
It was fun! I was getting great results and it was a little addictive too. So I decided to join a CrossFit gym. It was late 2009 when I signed up at CFV. Started out as a client, then an intern, and now a coach.
I love the mix of movements in CrossFit. Everyone has their favourites, but we also have those movements that challenge us — so you are never left bored. There is always something to work on or improve upon.
Favourite thing about CrossFit?
The community aspect of CrossFit is something that I really appreciate. It helps transform the thought of going to the gym into a much more engaging (and fun) experience, and not just lifting weights or working out. Through CrossFit, I have met great people, from diverse backgrounds, which I would never have met otherwise.
