Three words to describe yourself:
Passionate, determined, independent!
After years of doing the normal gym “stuff” … cardio, back and bi’s, chest and tri’s, leg day, spin classes, ab crunches…. I was bored, unhappy and no longer seeing results. Within a few months of starting CrossFit I saw noticeable physical changes. My body composition changed, I was the same weight, but I looked leaner. I had lost weight and gained more muscle. I felt stronger, faster and more mobile. Along with the physical changes I also gained self confidence and I was more motivated in my everyday life and job. The variety, intensity and scalability of CrossFit has kept me challenged and steadily improving. All while having FUN!
One thing that surprised me about CrossFit was how much I loved joining in a fitness class. The camaraderie amongst everyone in class and the CrossFit community was overwhelming. There were no egos, no bad attitudes, it was just hard work and in a supportive environment that can’t be faked.
It is FUN and it is in my blood. Simply put, I love connecting with people. Being able to provide them with the right tools to achieve their goals and share in their excitement when they succeed is extremely rewarding.
I love helping people overcome their fears, push through and embrace the uncomfortable and discover they are capable of more than they think.
A combination of a heavy barbell and challenging gymnastics movements. And why not add some burpees in there to make it even better.
Least Favourite WOD?
Any WOD with rowing or the Assault Bike.
Top Coaching Tip:
Enjoy the process and spend time on the little things. There will be plenty of ups and downs on your lifelong fitness journey, so enjoy the ride and remember to have FUN.
