  • CrossFit Open 2021 – I will not be competing this year

    The CrossFit open is a great time to compete with others globally, locally and even on a personal level. However, I feel this year isn’t the year for me…

  • 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 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.

  • 3 years at CrossFit

    A memory popped up on Facebook today and it’s reminded me why I joined Crossfit. I initially joined because I was unhappy with my weight. I got to 16st (~101kg) and I was feeling slightly unhappy with my weight gain. It’s not a huge amount of weight compared to other’s, but it was my heaviest weight. Also, posture was a biggie for me, I have Anterior Pelvic Tilt (or APT) and I walked with a bounce.
