To me Cross Fit, and CCW in particular, is whatever you want it to be
I walked in to CCW a little over six months ago with no real idea, other than what I’d seen on YouTube, about Cross Fit was. On the right side (younger) of the 40 divide I was pretty apprehensive as I headed in to class and what was to be the first of many WODs. As it turned out, I had nothing to worry about. Yes, I had to work my arse off, and yes I suddenly realised I was ‘gym’ fit only, but the thing that caught me, my safety net, were the people I was training with. All I heard was generosity, kindness, and motivation…and when I say motivation, I mean it came in bucket loads.

I have learned so much since that first class, and there’s still so much more to discover….new techniques to master, new goals to chase, and new personal challenges to strive for. To me Cross Fit, and CCW in particular, is whatever you want it to be (over and above a great way to get fit and strong) but for me it has become a lifestyle. I kind of cringe hearing myself say that, after all it sounds like a cliche, but it reflects what for me is a new journey in my life. My diet has changed, my training goals are maturing, I’m discovering heaps about myself (still hate the assault bikes), but most of all……I have met some truly amazing people and get to train in a hugely supportive environment.
