Why is crossfit your preferred method of training?
I am totally addicted to the variety, community and intensity of CrossFit training. I feel stronger and fitter than ever. I have gained a confidence in my body to take on challenges I didn’t think possible. I love the feeling of accomplishment when you train hard and push yourself; I have learnt so much about what makes me tick.
