My husband Michael and my sister from another mr Janelle. Why did I start CrossFit? I originally started cross fit because my husband Michael had joined access and raved about how great it was and how great the box was. After a couple of months of him convincing me to give it a go I decided to and was hooked pretty much straight away. I’d never done a lot of exercise before and was a pack a day smoker so it was tough to make such a big lifestyle change! Best change Ive ever made! I quit smoking and have never been so fit and healthy! Def one of the best decisions I’ve made. What do I love about CrossFit Access? I love that I don’t have a choice! Anyone can get a gym membership but I’m the sort of person that would rock up, do 15 on the tread and go home! I love that my workout is there waiting for me and I have great coaches pushing me to do my best and to make me finish my workouts! I’ve also met some amazing friends through access so I’m really grateful for that and just love the all round atmosphere at the box. Everyone deserves to be able to go to a gym no matter what they look like or what they weigh and feel welcome, comfortable and not judged. Not a lot of places can offer that but access sure does! Any advice for anyone just starting their CrossFit journey? Come in and have fun! Everyone starts somewhere!! Don’t feel like you have to come in fit and squating 100kg! There’s no judgment or expectations, scale wods, try hard and have a laugh! At the end of the day whether your an rx athlete or struggling to lift a 15kg bar, everyone’s gaining and getting fit in their own way! We’re all just working together to reach the same goal
