From a young age I have had keen interest in fitness but couldn’t find a sport that really floated my boat. In my late 20’s I competed in ‘X-Training’ at an advanced level and was unbeaten for 2 years.
I was introduced to Crossfit by my coach Ben Allen in 2012 when Crossfit Southampton first opened its doors. After many years of him telling me how amazing it was, he was right and I was hooked.
Though the competition element is important to me – it is over shadowed by the sense of the community that CrossFit has.
