Why do you love coaching crossfit?

The constant variation of workouts working all muscle groups with a good mixture of strength and conditioning made it appealing. While being able to help members with their own fitness journey.

 

What do you love about crossfit as a whole?

I started my Crossfit journey shortly after lifting weights in the school gym for the first time with no structure or motivation in the workouts. A couple of months later, tired of doing constant beach muscle workouts I saw the Crossfit Games on ESPN and had to jump in a class and give it a go. Love the group environment and the way you can push yourself to the next level.

 

What is the best part of the CFWA family?

Crossfit West Auckland has a great community of like minded people who want to improve their health and reach their fitness goals. I’m fortunate enough to progress members skills, fitness and strength through coaching which also keeps me on my toes when I jump into class workouts. I like that everyone is on their own journey and how each movement can be scaled down so that no matter what level of strength or fitness everyone is lying on the ground after a good workout.
