Where did it all start?
Throughout school I played pretty much every sport that I had time for, but my main favourite sports were field hockey and soccer. Through school I also played state level hockey, basketball and gymnastics. After school, I felt like I needed to do something more challenging and independent, which I then found running, which lead to triathlon and adventure racing. In that time, I completed 3 half marathons, 6 triathlons and 1 half Ironman. I wanted to get stronger due to my bike leg being my weakest leg and from that I found CrossFit. 6 months later, and at the end of the tri season, I gave it up and went full time CrossFit and have never looked back.
To be fitter, faster, stronger than I was yesterday and to prove to myself that anything is possible. The better I am in the gym means the better I’ll be outside the gym and the more prepared I’ll be for anything in my path along my journey through life.
Favourite thing about CrossFit?
I wouldn’t say I have a particular favourite thing about CrossFit but there are a lot of aspects about it that I love. The biggest thing I’ve fallen in love with is weight lifting and the opportunity to be able to move objects that are a lot heavier than you. I love how everyone can do the same workout, and that we can all experience the same thing, and no matter how good or bad you are, everyone is there together. Lastly and most importantly, I love how CrossFit tests all aspects of the human body such as moving heavy weight, total body control and one’s muscular endurance. It teaches us to push our limits and go out of our comfort zone and explore the beautiful world we live in and not spend our lives with technology.
