How long have you been into Crossfit? 3 Months

What made you start Crossfit? Few work mates have been doing it for a couple years and have always encouraged me to do it.

Favourite Exercise/Crossfit movement? Cleans

Least favourite exercise/Crossfit movement? Burpees

Biggest achievement in CrossFit to date? Flexibility. My squats are a lot better than when I first started.

Most embarrassing or funny moment in CrossFit? Tried to do a clean, got the bar to front rack position, couldn’t stand up so I fell back on to the ground flat on my back, the bar rolled on top of me and I was too tired to push it off me, and I’m pretty sure Bianca saw it all. She wasn’t laughing but she would have been cracking up on the inside.

What has contributed to your success in the last month? Awesome coaches, awesome members, awesome WOD’s.

In 50 words or less describe your CrossFit Hurstville Experience?

Would have stopped ages ago if I didn’t enjoy it. We do something different every day and its hard work, not once have I finished a WOD not drenched in sweat. Running, jumping, lifting, squatting, there’s nothing we don’t do. We have great coaches who are always pushing us to get better and the other members are also great to work alongside. Love it!
