Crossfit Open 2019

In 4 to 5 days, we will be finding out what our first workout called 19.1 will be. This will be my third year going into the open, and I'm not nervous. The open workouts are just a way for me to see how I stack against my previous self and those within my box. It is nothing more than a benchmark, and I'm sure it's the same for a lot of people. It's always exciting to see athletes compete on top form and they always seem to make it look so easy. I used to think that I could do it like them, but I've learnt I'll never be as good as they are.

Roarfit (Newton Abbot Crossfit) Review

I've been going to Roarfit for over 3 years, and I believe a blog review is long overdue. I started going before it was called Roarfit, it started off as Newton Abbot Crossfit. When I first started, I was nervous because I didn't know anyone. I didn't even know what Crossfit was until I started. It all began because I took my cat to the vets and I saw a bunch of girls and guys flipping tyres.

Winning Spirit of the gym at my CrossFit box

Coming into my Crossfit box this morning for a workout and thinking nothing of it. That's until my coach, Matt announced that someone had one the Spirit of the gym award who didn't turn up for last night's social. He announced my name, and I was actually shocked! Honestly, I couldn't believe that all my Crossfit friends would vote for me. It's truly an honour to win, and it made me incredibly happy to win.

How I manage to get to Crossfit every morning

Some days I wake up at 4:30, others at 5 on weekdays then on Saturday I get up at 7 in the morning. How do I do this you ask?

I have donated £175 to Macmillan Cancer Research

A few weeks ago, I took part in a Crossfit event called Battle Cancer. This event was in aid of Macmillan Cancer Research, and it was a spectacular event.

I managed 14 unbroken Double-Unders

I know this isn't a massive achievement, but I have a goal to get to 50 unbroken DUs by the end of the year. The other week, I managed to get 14 unbroken which is the most I have done so far. I'll keep you updated with my progress, but for now you can check the video below and follow me for more Crossfit updates.

Murph is quite possibly my favourite CrossFit Workout

It's not only to remind us of the great Michael Murphy who served for the US Navy, but it's also to remind us of friends and family who have served for our country (where ever you may be), it's to remind us of all our doctors, nurses, firefighters and police officers. It's also to remind us to be kind and help each other through tough times (e.g. this workout).

On 27/04/2018 I entered my first CrossFit Competition

I know that date has pretty much long gone, but I want to get into the habit of updating my blog more often with what I'm doing, so thought I would add this while I still can.
