Why CrossFit?

I stumbled across crossfit in February 2015 when I found a 10 session deal on groupon for my local box. At the time I was fitness crazy and thought I’d try something new whilst it was cheap. I loved the loud music and the intensity of the workouts. Most of all, I liked the friendly competition between the members and the focus on pushing to be better than your previous self! 2 weeks later I entered my first open not having a clue what I was doing and by the end of the 5 weeks I was obsessed and made the decision that I wanted to compete at the highest level! I am bored very easily, crossfit keeps me interested because of the constant variation and challenge that it presents to me! Now I just want to be the best I can possibly be!

When you’re not in the box?

On the rare occasion that I’m not in my happy place I.e the box, I am a huge gymnastics fan and am still involved with the sport heavily so I will be judging at a competition or assessing level 1, 2, 3 coaches for their coaching exams. I also love to walk my dog whenever I can in the Woods.

What gets you out of bed in the morning?

COFFEE, food and seeing what my coach has in store for the day! I get so excited to read my programme, I do this every morning in bed!

You can achieve what ever you want as long as you work hard enough!
