Age:  41

Occupation: First Aid Instructor

Goal for the Year: Originally to do a rope climb – after 41 years of never achieving this, I DID IT under the expert guidance of CSC coaches. Crossfit – a strict pull & non Crossfit – to enter my 1st mountain bike race

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

5 months

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

I have done a little bit of everything from personal training, running, mountain biking, the gym to local fitness classes.  I have never stuck at anything for more than a few months as I tend to get bored quite easily.

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

I originally heard about Crossfit from my personal trainer and learnt more as I researched it on line.  It was CSC’s very own coach Georgina that told me all about the Crossfit box opening in Stafford.

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

I love the fact that I never know what I’m turning up to do, every WOD is a personal challenge and therefore I never get bored with the same old workouts.  Setting personal goals keeps me motivated.

I enjoy meeting up with like minded lovely people who share your achievements with such enthusiasm and coaches who take time to listen and help you achieve the best you can be. 

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

In my first 4 months at Crossfit I lost 1 stone in body weight and dropped a dress size but for me the mental confidence has been the biggest change.  I feel more confident in myself, some of which comes from liking what I see when I look in the mirror now but Crossfit makes me believe I can achieve anything I put my mind to.  I feel more positive and confident about all aspects of life and my energy levels have never been higher.  Being part of CSC community has given me wings I never knew I had!!!!

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

I would recommend CF & especially CSC to anyone, my biggest regret is that I spent 12 months deciding if I was fit enough and if I would be accepted by these amazing Crossfit athletes that I had only watched on a computer screen.  Crossfit is for everyone and you will find nowhere that welcomes you with more enthusiasm than inside of the box, no matter where you are on your fitness journey.

My 8 year old son is also part of the Crossfit community. As a parent I wish my son to be healthy and happy, taking on life with a positive confident attitude, being part of the Crossfit community I know I am giving him every opportunity to achieve all of these things.

We all want to be a bit thinner, a bit fitter, have a bit more energy, well with a bit of commitment Crossfit can give you all these things, it did for me!!!
