Why I probably won’t be going back to CrossFit…at least not in South Africa

Integrity. It’s one of the first things that people mentioned when I first heard about CrossFit almost six years ago. A sport where you’re given crazy workouts, where regardless of how long it takes you to finish the wod (workout of the day) your pride is in the honest effort you gave. I drank the… Continue reading Why I probably won’t be going back to CrossFit…at least not in South Africa

Pregnant or Fat?

I’m going through a crappy period with my weight and it’s hard not to get down on myself, especially when everyone keeps asking if I’m pregnant 🤰🏽 I’m not, I’ve just gained weight. I’m on a solid reset plan that involves zero sugar and mostly veg. So far so good, BUT it’s tough. I looked… Continue reading Pregnant or Fat?

In Review: USN vs. NPL

One thing that grates on my titties is when I want to buy a supplement, my first instinct is to go on google to read reviews. Sadly 9 times out of 10, there aren’t any reviews. I like having facts in front of me BUT I also like to know how a product has or… Continue reading In Review: USN vs. NPL

Fight

You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it. Fight for what you want your life to look like. A couple of weeks ago I deleted all of my posts on Instagram. We've all been on a page before and thought the person who deleted all their posts to be a… Continue reading Fight

Mesmerizing

For as long as I can remember, I have always been part of the club of women that put on muscle (and unfortunately fat,) very quickly. This has meant that even if I go without doing things like push ups (who wants to do those anyway?) my arms are always defined, T-Rex and I are… Continue reading Mesmerizing

Drop it like a squat…

Can you remember the first workout move you ever did? No? Don’t worry I’ll help you out, it was the squat. It’s the first thing we do as babies, we do it  without even thinking about maintaining that 90 degree angle. We’re naturals at that age!  The fairytale would be that we stay that natural… Continue reading Drop it like a squat…

Athletes’ Corner: Chloë Hillier

I love social media; Instagram, Twitter, Facebook eh...not so much (how are we still using it?) I love that it’s provided for individuals to connect regardless of where they live. My favourite thing about social media? Connecting with other CrossFitters. That’s not a statement that should come as a surprise; I have said before that… Continue reading Athletes’ Corner: Chloë Hillier

P is for positive!

‘Change can be powerful, if we are brave enough to evolve with it.’ The hardest part of CrossFit is finding a box. Finding a coach that you connect with and people that are on the same wavelength as you are. A place where positivity is felt the minute you step in! In the wake of… Continue reading P is for positive!
