How long have you been coming to Central Staffs Crossfit.....

17 Months

What was your background in Fitness or Sport before you joined at CSC.........

Football & Rugby.

How did you hear about Crossfit.....& how did you hear about CSC specifically....

I 'd lost all enthusiasm for the gym and found myself scaling the internet for some inspiration, that's where I found crossfit. There wasn't a local box at the time, so I started incorporating some ideas into my own training when CSC popped up on my doorstep. I went down to meet Tim and Kieran the next day, the rest is history.

What do you enjoy the most about Crossfit at CSC.....

The constantly varied workouts,the community, the atmosphere and the competitiveness.


What changes have you seen physically and mentally within yourself since you started at CSC.....

I've gained good size and weight, I can perform lifts and movements I wouldn't have ever tried and move weights I'd have never imagined. I find myself increasingly more able to push through the variation of workouts. Training isn't a chore anymore, I wake up looking forward to that days session!

Would you recommend CSC + CF to friends, family & others......... If yes why....

I would and I do! 100% The coaching is second to none. The community is awesome. Having been there for over a year I can vouch that the program works for everyone regardless of age and ability.
