How long have you been coming to Central Staffs CrossFit?

I joined in February 2016

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

After ‘retiring’ from playing local and district league football in 2011, I actually did very little for a good few years.

I eventually purchased a road bike which was my regular exercise for 12 months or so but that also came to a bit of an abrupt end.

After that returned to doing very little until 2015 when I joined Stafford Guerrilla training.

How did you hear about CrossFit & how did you hear about CSC specifically?

From another member Paul Proudlock who could not speak more highly of the place.

What do you enjoy the most about CrossFit at CSC?

Wow, where do I start!

My 1st experience of CSC was when the box hosted a competition and I was invited down for a look around and to get a feel of the place, that was when everything changed!

The general buzz and all round feel good factor instantly sucked me in and I literarily signed up there and then!

From the expertise and positive attitude of the coaches, to the REAL friendly community feel you get both inside and away from the box, it's just 2nd to none.

Without meaning to sound like somewhat of a cliché, I genuinely do feel part of something amazing and that feeling alone is worth so much.

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

Even in such a short timescale I have already noticed all round changes.

I feel stronger, faster, and fitter, with a complete new mindset towards myself and the goals I want to achieve.

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

I already have!

To share the knowledge and encourage others. If people want to train in a professional, happy, healthy environment with top class facilities then there really is nowhere else to be.
