Q1. What have been your greatest successes (physically, mentally or emotionally) since you began? How does your body feel now compared to when you started and WHY?

All of the above really. Physically I’ve gotten much stronger and still getting stronger (watch out Reebok Games 2030). And mentally I’ve become more motivated to be the best version of me. Emotionally speaks for itself, I’m more confident and happier when I work out. Every WOD kicks my a** but it makes me feel good to finish something and try to beat my score the next time around.

Q2. How has your life changed since starting CrossFit training? Has CrossFit transferred over into any other areas of your life?

I’m a lot more active and constantly checking my form not only in the box but in the rec too. I now do mobility when watching TV and overall I’m definitely more awesome. My boss at the bakery has started testing my CrossFit skills and I now dead lift the bucket of potatoes and farmer carry them into the cool-room. No big deal but kinda a big deal. But on a serious note, my overall lifestyle has changed for the better since starting CrossFit.

Q3. What are the advantages of CrossFit style training compared to your previous workout styles?

I like how it’s never the same and there is so much potential for PR-ing. When you start to become good at something CrossFit shows you that there’s always room for improvement. I used to workout every day before CrossFit, but never pushed myself to my full potential. I also have a habit of favoring leg day, so shaking up my workout routine through CrossFit has definitely been challenging and exciting.

Q4. What advice can you give to others?

If it doesn’t scare you, it isn’t heavy enough.

Athlete Specific Q. You’ve been know to “bust a move” (dance) when walking through the gym. Could you beat Coach Kyle or Kody in a dance off? Of course if you’re not to knackered from the WOD

Coach Kyle OR coach Kody? Please I can beat Coach Kyle AND Coach Kody. Bring it Boys!
