What are you wanting to achieve through CrossFit?
I have no specific sporting goals at the moment but a huge priority to me is to live a happy and healthy lifestyle, and CrossFit definitely allows me to do that.

What were your first experiences at CrossFit Uncut like?
It was exciting and it was quite cool to see girls throwing around like 100kgs and that’s something that I thought I’d never be able to do and it’s definitely a very inclusive feel from the first time here and fun from the start as well

How did you find the coaches and other members when you first joined CrossFit Uncut?
The coaches are awesome and work around any injuries that you’ve got and the members are just incredible and some of my best friends that I have now are members from this gym.

What is it specifically about CrossFit that you like?
I enjoy that there’s lots of different movements with CrossFit, and lots of different things that you can get good at, like gymnastics, and strength training, and cardio which I’m not very good at (laughs). But I’ve tried lots of different other sports and this is definitely the most fit I’ve ever been, and the most well-rounded athlete I’ve ever been.

What keeps you coming back?
I know I’m gonna have fun every single night, and just know that I can be silly and dance and talk to my friends and it’s just really lighthearted but I still get a really good workout.

Is there any advice you would give to someone who is on the fence about joining?
Definitely just come and try it because everyone thinks they’re not fit enough, or not strong enough to do it, but you 100% are, and within a few weeks you’ll notice yourself getting fitter and stronger and you’ll just feel amazing.
