Bridget has been with us for a few months now and is an amazingly passionate & enthusiastic member of our community. She has worked so hard to learn new skills and it’s wonderful to see her confidence growing every class. She is usually the first to give everyone else encouragement during a WOD. We sat down and asked her to reflect on her CrossFit journey so far and here are her thoughts. She in in the middle of competing in her first CrossFit Open and is doing so well, we are really proud of her efforts!!!
1. What brought you to CrossFit in the first place?
I was looking for a place to workout that is different to a mainstream gym. A place I could feel comfortable and happy and where I felt I was more than just a number.
2. What was your first impression? How has that changed?
I felt so intimidated! But everyone here is so friendly that before long I felt like I was part of the community.
3. What was your first highlight?
I can’t even remember my first highlight as there have been so many since that first week.
4. What are you working towards now?
Just to be fit and healthy for my kids. I come along to classes as often as I can to work on my overall strength and fitness.
5. What’s your favourite CrossFit 4504 moment so far?
The day I did a 110kg deadlift! I didn’t think I could do something like that. It left me on a high for days!
